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.

forgive me water...

for I have sinned.

Yesterday I drank 1 cup of water in the morning and one cup of water at home.

It has also been a solid 2 weeks since I drank you on a regular, even.... semi-adequate basis.

Today you have shown me the error of my ways, ... 242.8 today.   YUCK.  

Not only that, but I feel HORRIBLE.  Bloated, cranky, tired and sore.  Last night I had a salt attack!  My body is telling me I'm not getting enough and its holding onto every last drop.

Time to get back on the water wagon.


  1. Yesterday, I had a stupid eating day and felt terrible, like you describe. I'm not certain why I can't remember how old and stiff in the joints I feel when I eat stuff I shouldn't eat. Because it's not a very happy feeling at all. But I'm back on track today. :D

    1. awesome Marion! Me too. I think sometimes I just wish so hard that this was easy and simple that I try to make it so. BACKFIRE. The body knows what it needs. :)

  2. More than anything else, I struggle with getting my water in. It is something that I can easily forget to do, and it always bites me in the scale. ;-)

  3. I am the water warrior, never go anywhere without it. That being said, there are rare days when I glance at the clock and it's 1pm and I've had NO water. Guilt immediately sets in. You are on the right path by recognizing you are lacking!
