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.

Obligatory posting, as I am not feeling it. 

Hovering in the 234's still.  STILL. 


Saturday before last I hurt my lower back lifting weights. Too heavy too soon. So I've been resting, icing, & chiropractor visits.

However, I've been mostly worried that I had ruined myself for my upcoming holiday!!! This Saturday we leave for Iceland!!!!!! So very excited!! 

Lots of walking, site-seeing and relaxing. I can't wait!

  1. I hope your back will be better in time for your trip. Lower back pain is very tough when you want to do lots of walking and feel like you can't even straighten up all the way or breathe right! Iceland sounds awesome! I don't know anyone who has been there more than once except research scientists. Have a fabulous time.
