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.

I am now heavier by .2lbs than when I started tracking on myfitnessspal on January 1, 2014. 

I lost 10lbs and have now gained it all back. 

Very depressing. 

It doesn't FEEL like I've changed my eating. I know I'm not getting enought water, but clearly I'm getting this food shit wrong. 

Back to school stress.
New job stress. 

I clearly have no coping skills other than to stuff my face. 

Blah. Time to take a long hard look in the mirror and remember, food is no friend of mine.

February Recap 2015

Well, down .4lbs 

Feb 1 243.6
Feb 28 243.2

Today 241.4

Guess what! I'm going to be happy about it!! 

College classes are in full swing. Survived my midterms and keeping it in the 80's. 

Started new job this month, it's less fun than I was hoping, but I'm going to power through and just keep at it. Trying to stay positive. 

Bonus time is here!! 2 weeks until that pays out.

I've been maintaining my weights routine and actually working at drinking more water!! Yay!

All in all, I snack too much and over serve my meals. Trying to work at both those. 

Feeling a little reflective so Henry Rollins it is.
