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.

Weekly Prep

Ug, so I've still be over indulging, we had people over and had cheese plates and cookies and alcohol. Which I over did on all fronts.

However, I did get back to the grocery store and do some prep for the week.  I have veg and meat for dinners this week. Collected up some breakfast foods, and packed lunches for the week at the office.

I will NOT give up!

I've also caught my Husband cooking with butter MORE and MORE.  Ug.  So we have to have a discussion about that.  I don't need butter on everything to make it taste good.  First off I saw it on the frozen peas - you don't need butter to nuke frozen peas.... then a giant pat of it on my sweet potato last night...

I know he loves me and wants me to be happy. That used to mean feeding me food I like.  Which is really just us slipping back into old patterns.  So, yeah... that discussion and follow through is going to have to happen.  Which makes me sad, because cooking an the kitchen is his purview... but if this is what is going to happen, then I'm going to have to step in.  I can't be fed 3oz of butter every night in the vein of making me happy.

NOT that this is the only reason that I'm not losing..... as you could see by MY choices in the post before.  BS skills here. But I don't need the extra help.

ANYWAY!  Also, my weight lifting buddy has convinced me to start back in January.  He told me to get mentally prepared for it.   So... I am! HA!

okay - back to work, water and regularly scheduled programming.

  1. Good for you for having those difficult discussions, not always fun. And I highly recommend weight training...I started doing it very seriously in Sept and while I'm often sore I can actually feel myself getting stronger and my shape is changing. Bye bye extra flab! (well not all of it but some of it is gone!)
