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.

March Monthly Recap 2014

March is done... hard to believe!

This has been an amazing month for me for success, however this morning’s weigh in was slightly up. HOWEVER, I'm going to NOT let it bother me, as I didn't sleep well last night, had a late dinner, and get my morning constitutional in before weigh in.

In March I had 6 "new lows" recorded!  I couldn't be happier that I ended the month on one of those too.  234 is the lowest month end recorded weigh-in thus far. 

Happy Dance.

I’ve been sick, had gallbladder surgery, root canal, and have not done any working out - but I also spent almost all of March recording everything that I ate on the MFP ap, and thinking about getting in more and more water and eating a lot of protein.   
The ap has really made a difference in my awareness to what I’m eating.  I still have treats, I still splurge on things, but just less frequently… AND I’m aware of them so I don't just indulge indulge indulge - which has been a big issue for me.
The NSV's this month:
1. bought regular size 18 pants in a regular women's department!  Almost into the 16's.
2. Solid size 16 up top/XL regular and the occasional L
3. new bras - 38DD
4. Went to a clothing swap yesterday. Actually fit into a couple of things!!  It was pretty awesome.
Not a very long post this morning, as I have work to get to, but I certainly am excited about my progress and looking forward to continued success in April.


  1. I love your dedication to recording. I stink at it. I'm glad its helping you with your loss. Love the NSVs too. As those sizes continue to shrink the motivation gets bigger!!! :)

    1. Thank you!! Some days I really DON"T want to weigh in... but then I look back and am really happy that I have.

      Shrinking down is one of the greatest things for me. Numbers sometims lose meaning... but whenthe shirt says "L" that means something!! :)

  2. You are doing so well! I'm proud of you for accomplishing so much in March, especially under adverse circumstances!

    1. :) Thank you! keep plugging along, that is my mantra now!

  3. I am super thrilled for you!! You definitely had a challenging month but still had lots of good lows in there as well. Congrats ;-)

    1. yes! focusing on the positive!! Its easy for me to be all "doom & gloom", which is why tracking is so good for me! :)
