VSG Journey

Well, well, well, it has been a long time since I last posted.... I have been getting myself together for surgery and just have been neglecting my blog......let me catch you up....

So I am getting the vertical sleeve gastrectomy and I have got my surgery date which is April 18, 2013...wooohooo!!!! so I have been preparing my body and mind for this....I am currently o two week liquid diet...which I started three days early...I got weighed at my last surgeon appointment on Thursday and I was 224...but let me tell you about the weekend prior to this

The Easter weekend was my last weekend to eat what I want....of course I over ate and did all of that good stuff :)....My hubs and I went on a date from Friday to Sunday and enjoyed ever bit of it...we went to fly kites ant the Cherry Blossom Festival, in Washington DC....we had a picnic while out their....so with all these festivities that I engaged in I was weighing 226....weighed myself and I had gained three pounds from this gluttonous weekend...so I was at 229..... Now Back to the progress....

So, on this liquid diet that has been extremely hard ...I am down to 217.6....so I am on a role....I had set a goal  for myself to meet before surgery which was to get to 220...I did not reach that until I got the liquid diet but hey I made it.....Now I am trying to see if I can get down to 200 before surgery...anywho, I'm still living and breathing and getting things together for surgery and enjoying this nice weather out here.....I will try to keep you all more updated...

Weigh In

So today would be my weigh in today but I am not going to weigh myself.....WHY????????

Well, I am glad to report that TOM has come to visit....I am excited because he visited in Dec and Jan on his own.......Hoooooorary for TOM!!!! 

Ok ok ok....for those of you who don't understand I havent had a cycle since 2011 Dec. I usually only have a cycle once a year (if that) and it is always in Dec right at Christmas time.....so to see that it is coming on its own I am excited. That means me losing weight is changing some of my PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome).

Anywho, I do have some NSV i guess....well i had to tighten my bra up and I am now able to wear it on the third hooks.....that means i am losing inches around that area....HOOOOORRRARY!!!!

I can also wear and XL shirt from old navy....that is awesome coming from an 2X......well I am totally excited....maybe next week TOM will be gone and I can give an update on the weight.....

Vision Board

Well, I am in the process of doing an inspiration/vision board. I thought that it would be cool to have something to remind me of what i want to accomplish. Some goals, dreams, and inspirations....so yea i am doing that and of course I will post a pic once I am done.....

Workout this week has sucked.....got sick on Wednesday (eating fried foods.....haha..that is what I get). and then Thursday I didn't feel like it BUT today, I am going to the GYM......yes, yes, ....so yeah

I have my last two appts on Jan 23 (support group and endoscopy) I am excited for that....maybe my surgery will be scheduled in Feb....cross your fingers for me....


I need some good good protein to drink. I have been having a issue with finding some that I like and also how to drink it.....seriously I need help with that.....but that is all for now

Decision Decision

Well, in my last blog I was contemplating either the band or the sleeve. Well, I have decided to go with the sleeve. It seems to be a better fit for me and my lifestyle.

I weigh myself naked today and the scales says......drum roll plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I am down 16.7 pounds....I am so excited about that.....so my days to weigh in are Wednesdays.....whoohoo....Weigh In Wednesdays here I come...lol

I hope everyone are doing wonderful and being successful in their journey...Until next time.

New Year & New Me


Well, I haven't blog in a while I was traveling from MD, to SC, and then to NC......long ride hey!!! Anyway, I enjoyed my holiday and ate to much and eat to much again. I really enjoyed my family and all the time that we spent together.

Now, the real issue:
 I am in a dilemma. Went to my first support group meeting and know I am thinking of changing my surgery from lapband to vertical sleeve.....ummmmmm????????? The place that I will be getting my surgery only has to surgeons that does the lapband and all the other things that go with that (fills/unfills). However, when they go on deployment it is know one to do the things that you need ( as u can see I am a military spouse). Then also, I am considering having a child a year after the surgery and just the concerns of all of that. I don't know what to do. JUST LOST!!!! 

I am almost done with all of my preop paperwork and hopefully will get a date.  My hubby in the beginning wanted me to get the sleeve but i closed my mind to everything when I seen that the lapband seemed easier for me....Now i should have considered all pros and cons to both of these surgeries.....

Well this is my dilemma and here is a pic of me 

I am now 245 pounds from 255 pounds......i lost my ten pounds!!!!!! HOOORRAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!
