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, I've been so tired at night that I have not even had enough energy to sit and type.

We signed all the paperwork and bought a house last wednesday
I recovered (almost) from being sick
I spent the weekend gardening
My legs are KILLING ME
It feels good to be sore
My hip is not bothering me from al the gardenng (excellent sign)
We went and saw Pacific Rim (teehee!)
I have 9 month check up at the Surgeons office today
I am SWAMPED at work and am going to have to get back on my 10 hour days at the office.  Ug

okay - that is the basics.  More later. 

Also, here is the dog, checking out the squirrel action at the new house.
