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.

Its been a long week for me, so I'm going to do a little bit of catching up.

Thursday & Friday last week we finally moved into the new house. Very stressful.  It was budget time at the office, so I've been burning the candle at both ends.  I'm still pretty tired, but I'm pushing through. 

One more super busy week at the office while we finalize numbers for next year, one more week of mess, boxes and crap everywhere.   I finised painting in the living room on Saturday - took the morning and afternoon - but only one trip to the hardware store (victory!). I did some more unpacking and sorting.  Hung up a couple of pictures. Damn it a lot of work.

I've been doing my weigh in's - I really try to never miss those. But I'm all wonky right now.  I'm puffy, swollen, bug bit and my period which was supposed to be last week is just lingering. Ug, feeling so bloated and horrible, I just want it to start already.

Sunday we did some work on the rental apartment above our garage. It was inhabited last by the son of the previous homeowner, he was a smoker and he left it in very very shabby condition.  It's going to be some pretty hard work getting the smoke and nicotine off the walls, and cleaning up 4 years of dust and sh*t.  HOWEVER - it will be worth it to turn it into a nice place to live in - and be a great rental income for us.  Also... cleaning is a HARD WORKOUT!  :) 

I made some good choices this weekend - we were tired and cranky from moving, cleaning and unpacking on Saturday night.  The Husband and I were starting our "dining out" loop - where neither of us wants to eat what is in the house, but neither of us wants to be the one to suggest eating out... cause we should stay in and eat what we have - but where's the "fun" in that.

However, I decided that there is no reason for us to eat out.  We had ground turkey, there was black beans and taco/sauce - so we had onions, ground Turkey and back bean "sloppy joes" - minus the bread.  Just a plate of meat and beans. It was GREAT!

Then we had it Sunday morning on eggs with a little bit of avocado for breakfast. 

We did a big grocery shop on the weekend as well - so we are all set for lunches this week - I'm refocusing on proteins and veg/fruit instead of pre-packaged carbs. I was going to take pictures of my food today - but I left my phone at home this morning.

Right - back to work!
