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.

Half Way

Holy #*($&##

I'm half way to my goal weight of 185lbs.  In fact, just over half way. How the hell did this sneak up on me without me even thinking about it?!??!?!?!?

Weigh in this morning: 242.8

Thats 58.2lbs lost.  Its just over 7 months since surgery and almost 60lbs gone, another 57.8lbs to go.  WOW!

If I manage to lose 4.8lbs a month, I will be there in 1 year from now.  

.....Well, thats pretty optimistic, i dont actually think that I could lose that as a sustainable amount each month.  I think its closer to 3lbs a month, which will be 19 months to goal weight.   However, that means ...... that on my 40th birthday I'll be under 200lbs. That's a goal I can get behind!!!!

There is no better gift to give to myself than that.
