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.

Ug... Those famous words....

Wish in one hand, piss in the other. See which one fills up first.

I wish...

That I hated food and only ate because I needed to. 
That I didn't think about food all the time.
That there was something else in my life that made me feel as good as eating.

June Recap 2015


Job bullshit came to a head this last week. 
My new boss was demoted, and I've been wondering what will happen to me. 
This morning I was offered a new position in another department, which I think will suit me a lot better. Phew!

Been trying to get more water in, middling success. 
Exercise is getting better, squats are going up in weight and I'm starting to feel strong again. 
Food.... Still snacking when I'm not hungry, but I'm slowly reigning it in. 

Wrote my midterms, passed. 
Just pounding away at my courses and pushing through.
