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.

I started to feel the begining of a UTI last night, so I popped over to the walgreens and got some cranberry pills. Think that took care of it - as I feel better this morning!!

  2. Great job! That sounds like a great workout. I just downloaded a photo with a workout posted on it that you are supposed to do 3x: 10 push ups, 20 sit ups, 25 squats, 20 lunges per leg, 80 jumping jacks and 60 second wall sits.
