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.

hard boiled egg and baby bel Moz cheese for breakfast - DONE!

I have resisted treats this morning 2x already.

Christmas treats moved out of reach - DONE!

Water full - DONE!

Mitigation - STARTING!

Here is todays food.  It might go horribly off track, but I'm starting her and this is where its going to try and stay.  No treats, no extra snacks, no ice cream, no cake.

I had my breakfast and feel.... empty. This is a mental track. I'm not hungry... but I don't feel stuffed and this is part of my issues.  I will go and get my second coffee for the day and start in on the water.  

****Edit**** I just looked up and noticed that it was 10:10am and I had NOT DIED OF STARVATION!!!!   Eating m cottage cheese and pineapple and not dying.  Strange but true.

  1. Really great! I could have never, in my wildest dreams, had a bit of cereal. It's like a third of the box or none at all. :D

    1. well -its called cereal...but its really like a chia seed, hemp heart and stuff super cereal. 2T grows to about 1/3c of the stuff once it gets wet. :)

  2. Beautiful! Glad the egg deal helped start your day without carbs/sugar. Good job Tamzin! Love it!

    1. Yes - I could totally feel the difference. I did have 2 eggs and a little cheese this morning. I think one and one was not quite enough, as I did have a few issues with sugar in the afternoon. More mornin calories for less evening ones!

  3. I love cottage cheese and pineapple! Yummy. :)
