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.

Last 2 days I've not gotten enough water, in fact yesterday I went a whole workday with maybe a single cup.

238.8 on the scale this morning.  Yikes!

Time to get back ON the water train.


  1. I have to make myself get in 32 oz before lunch or I'm screwed for the day. I have a 32oz water bottle that I fill up every morning and put in the fridge to pour into a cup during the day. Try setting a reminder on your computer or your phone if you just get so busy you don't think about it. I've also noticed that I do a lot better with water when I workout in the am....but it's hard to get up at 5am :) Good luck!

  2. Love the phone reminder thing...great advice Melissa! Yep, I just sip sip sip all day long. The only time I'm not sipping is for at least 45min-1 hour after eating. I will set my phone when I'm done with the last bite so I can keep track otherwise I'd forget how much time had passed. Good luck Tamzin!

  3. I need to check off my water. I still need to drink 16 ounces today! Better run down to do that. Thanks for the reminder. :D
