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.

August has been a month of wallowing. More woes about work, more crap where I don’t eat right and don’t drink enough water.  I did stick to my weight lifting, however, I had a week gap in early August for a work event and I had to be out of town running that for 5 days. 

However, this month is done, and I’ve been trying to learn lessons.  Trying to get back on track, but I know that this is not a simple switch for me. 

The base issue is that I’m unhappy, and 39 years of life experience with unhappiness was food.  So, I’m trying, but I’m failing more than succeeding in dealing with the sads with something other than food.

The positive:
Started lunch packing again
Sunday cooking
Less junk in the house
Tracking on MFP my food a couple times a week
Still weighing in daily
4x a week at the gym
Still turning to food
Still snacking too much
Not enough water


  1. I know it's frustrating to keep bouncing up and down, but you're doing a pretty good job of keeping it reined in. Good luck with getting back on track, and I hope you can find some other way to cope with unhappiness.

  2. Thanks Connie. Work is hard, trying to be mentally tough, and making better choices this week in small situations. I wish I like to bite my nails instead of snack, but this is life. getting my "big girl panties" on and dealing with it! :)
