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.

Back to work

I had all last week off to relax around the house.  It was great. Did some reading, watching tv, walking the dog, drinking coffee and various bits of cleaning. Met a couple of friends for lunch and that was about it.

The husband was sick all week and - of course - it finally caught me on Saturday night.  I can't afford to be out sick this week, so I'm going to have to power threw on drugs and coffee.  Bleck.


this is what I see in m future.

I spent a good number of days in the 239 range.  A nice foray into new low territory, but I am all bunged up now, so this week I'm expecting to be up in the 240's again.. which I was this morning.

Such is life.



  1. Hi Tamzin! No, your future weight is up or down depending upon your actions. So make them good ones! I've had plenty of extremely stressful events in my profession where I did not gain a single bit of weight. I've also been sick and not gained. Stress does not gain a person weight, overeating does. So be *very good* to yourself and watch your food, okay? :D
