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.

OMG, Michelle at Eggface posted up the best water picture ever.  This is exactly what I have to do.  Must get some new water bottles and mark them up for home on the weekends.

In fact, I'm going to do this to my work water bottle right now:

Done.. and lo and behold, I was behind already... made sure to take care of that.  I will also have to refill and use this one for am and pm, but that's all good.  I don't think that I have had a full Liter of water here at the office in a day for..... months.

Chronically dehydrated.. that pretty much sums me up.  Lets see how this little tool helps out. As always, awareness is key. Its easy to not drink water if I don't know how little I've had.


  1. What a great idea. I time my water too. 24 oz by 10:30, 24 oz by noon, 24 oz by 2, 24 oz by 4, and 24 oz by 6 then at least 16 oz by 8. Funny how it helps! As the weather gets warmer I think I might have to drink more...

    1. totally! I love goals that I can see. This has already helped so much!

      Down here in the south, the summer is so hot and humid that you do have to increase the water, especially if you are going to spend any time outside!
