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.

The Rules

Just a reminder to myself.
  1. eat protein first (60 - 100g a day)
  2. eat veggies second
  3. eat bread last
  4. eat slowly, chew well
  5. stop when I'm full
  6. No drinking while eating - wait 30min after eating
I've been neglecting the protein
I've been eating too quickly
I've been having the carbs first
I've been eating 2 or 3 more bites PAST full

I went back and read over my first months worth of surgery posts.  It was a nice trip back down memory lane.

Today is a work lunch - sushi - so that will be good on the protein side and I'll have mostly sashimi.  Tonight is a party with old friend.  Old friends that eat a LOT and its "treat night".  So I'm planning on taking an eggnog latte with me - which I love - and that is my treat. I will NOT be eating anything else. 

This is still a lot of calories for today, so if I'm not hungry - I'll be skipping the mid afternoon snack.
