It all makes sense...
Wednesday, March 09, 2011      4 comments

Well, maybe not EVERYTHING makes sense, but a lot more does! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and now that I finally know what is wrong with me, I know how to cope. I finally understand why I have pain all of the time, and why I'm so incredibly... Read more
Where to begin...
Saturday, January 08, 2011      6 comments

I have actively avoided even visiting this site because I am so ashamed of my failure. I had such high hopes, and was so sure that I would be successful after my surgery and that hasn't been the case. This is really the first time that I've admi... Read more
The good, the bad and the ridiculous
Tuesday, March 09, 2010      5 comments

I'll start off with the bad and get it out of the way. It turns out that my dad stopped taking his medication and started drinking heavily again. He had the nerve to swear my mother to secrecy and she said she didn't want to "rat him out." Not c... Read more

My fiancé and I had a talk and he's starting to realize that his portion sizes are not my portion sizes and I can't eat everything that he eats. I knew eventually he'd start to catch on... it's been almost a year since my surgery, after all. ... Read more

I didn't realize how long it had been since I Sparked until I saw the date of my last blog entry. Geez - I kind of fell of the planet there for awhile! Things are going fairly well now. My father has completely stopped drinking with the hel... Read more
A Very Personal Update
Saturday, January 09, 2010      8 comments

I generally don't post things this personal here, I don't like to acknowledge things anyway and putting it into words makes it more real. My father has always been the kindest, most generous man I've ever met. Yep, I'm daddy's girl. He deal... Read more

I've been bad. Too many yummy things have jumped into my mouth and now it's time to get back on track! I started my antibiotics for an acute sinus and ear infection today, so I won't be able to use illness as an excuse anymore - tis about ... Read more
Surgery without Information? - RANT
Thursday, December 17, 2009      1 comments

Is it common for people to have gastric bypass and not know what they're getting into? Maybe it's just new to me because everyone I had contact with before had gone through the same hospital and we were all properly prepared. I just can't get ov... Read more

Oy. I haven't been keeping up on SP at all. I don't know what has been wrong with me. I haven't wanted to do ANYTHING. I've just sat on my ass and done absolutely nothing productive. I haven't lost any weight in a couple of months - just back an... Read more
Making a written promise so I can't "forget"
Friday, December 04, 2009      4 comments

I promise that tomorrow (Friday) I'll either make an appointment with the doctor or go to the urgent care center. I realized today that I have been sick in one form or another for over a month now. That's just ridiculous. Generally, I... Read more

Last November 7th my mother and I went to my first seminar on weight loss surgery. I had looked into it for years, but as soon as I found out that my insurance would actually pay for it, I called right away. By early December, I had alread... Read more

Why measuring yourself is AWESOME. So excited!
Friday, November 27, 2009      4 comments

I made sure to take all of my measurements on March 15, 2008 (the day before my RNY) and I've been slacking a bit on doing them. I actually did them for the first time since August - sheesh! I won't subject anyone to the actual measurements, but... Read more
Yoga is hard!
Tuesday, November 24, 2009      1 comments

Kind of a "duh" title, but whew! I just did 20 minutes of yoga on the Wii Fit, which I guess counts as real yoga. It sure feels like real yoga! Back in my slimmer days I did Kundalini yoga daily, but there came a time when my gut just wasn... Read more
