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.

Goal: 215

Well, announced to my work out partners that my goal this year is to get to 215lbs. 

I never do well at these sorts of things, so making it public will help. The other lady is about 10lbs heavier than me, so she is going to aim for 215 too. She has 35 to lose.

Also our coach has got to drop 18lbs for his powerlifting weight class. So we are all in.

Today I did great:
Better water intake.
Breakfast, lunch & dinner on track
Few too many "treats" but less than normal. 3 cookies and 3 mini chocolates

Workout done:
Bench press 3 sets x 5 reps 100lbs
Complex work of 3 sets x 8 reps
Hang cleans 50lbs
Overhead press 50lbs
Hanging knee raises

It was a tough one!!

Water, breakfast, protein & tracking snacks is where I'm going to really focus right now.

  1. Good luck getting to your goal! I had gotten down to 215 last February and then found out I was pregnant so I had the baby in October and now have to lose 13lbs to get back to 215 and keep moving from there. Definitely a vicious cycle. I haven't been doing any exercising and I've been eating horrible so I can say that has a lot to do with it :). Are you keeping up with measurements? I'm sure with all the strength training, you've replaced a lot of fat with muscle.
