2012 - I had Vertical Sleeve Gastric Surgery in October 2012, and this is my journey to push the fat girl aside and start living life without fear of lawn chairs, the middle seat, clothing shops and high heels. Among other things.

2017 - I'm preop for the Duodenal Switch procedure for my sleeve to help me get to goal weight....and to fix another hiatal hernia.

Good Mornig

Well, I'm feeling great - another morning weigh-in in the 243's and I didn't even get a morning p00p in today! haha  Take that TMI for morning blog reading.

I can see the difference in the shirt that I'm wearing. Last I put it on, maybe 10days ago, it felt a LITTLE too tight, but I wore it anyway.  Today, it doesn't feel like its gripping me for dear life. Today, it just is nicely fitted.  :)  

I'm on track to hit my water target for 9am.  I have noticed that if I get on it early, and don't spend the whole day trying to "catch up", I do a lot better.  So, today I'm going to stay on it.  CONSTANT VIGILANCE!

The other great news is that we have a contract on a new house for us.  I'm super excited, nervous and worried. Of course, all that good stuff.  We are booking the inspections and surveys, and we are going to renno the kitchen a little, new back splash, repaint the lower cupboards, take out the top ones and put in some nice simple open shelving.  I'm excited.  I'm going to do some painting as well - most of the house is "move-in beige", and I can't stand that in the bedroom.  Happily, both bathrooms are a nice light blue, so that's a job I don't have to do. Anyway - speculation is best done before the hard work begins. 

Right, like I've said before - I must really hate myself. I'm super busy at work and all this other stuff... now we are buying, and renno'ing a home.  I can see where my weekends are going to be.

okay - back to my water and work.


  1. YAY For a nice weigh in! Congrats on your loss! Good luck with the house. I will keep my fingers crossed that all goes well! Water...I currently feel like I'm floating!

  2. Thanks Chris! I've been failing at my commenting on everyones blogs, since I'm mostly reading from my phone - but I'm still watching you!! :) haha! MORE WATER! good job on that.
