  1. 9-Month Sleeversary

    Well, just a quick update on my progress toward my health and weight goals. But first, I want to share some amazing news too, I received a grad school acceptance letter from USC!!! I am not counting my chickens just yet as I am waiting to hear from the financial aid office as to what type of scholarships I may receive, and I am still waiting to hear from another grad program so crossing fingers and toes still. My partner and I have come up with a contingency living plan, whatever happens we will ...
  2. 8-Month Post-Sleeve Gastrectomy

    The good news is that I'm calm and collected despite a jump up on the scale this week. I finally started my "moon" on Sunday! It was a week over due. So I am hoping it's water gain and next week I will know if Christmas indulging has made a permanent stay on my thighs. Needless to say this past week I start each day with the goal of cutting down on non essential carb loaded foods, like granola or cherry Garcia or pecan pralines. Let's just say that sugar cravings have been getting the ...
  3. Bad mood and just feeling craby 🦀 😶

    I'm just in a funk. I don't know how to get out of it.

    I can't seem to get it together! I was doing great for a few days trying to get back on a routine.

It took forever and the guy cut me too close in two fingers (which are still hurting.) I just wanted my nails to breath for a while ...

  4. Idling/Boredom

    Okay gang, just keeping it real.

    As I am waiting to hear from new job prospects, idling and boredom are getting the best of me!

    I had a cup of coffee and found an old bag of mini biscotti in the pantry; I told myself I could have three and next thing I know I was reaching for the last one. There were only six, but still! Self-control was out to lunch.

    I am not beating myself about the biscotti, but then about an hour or two later I ate two beef sticks ...
  5. 7-Month Post-Op update

    Hola from Guate!

    I'm heading home tomorrow after spending two and half glorious weeks in my natal land. It was five years since I was here last, but it feels so much like home. Last time I was here I gained like 10lbs, this time I actually lost a few.

    I had a few "O.ops" eating moments when I had forgotten completely about my surgery and those alarms in my gut just started going off when something just didn't feel right. I ate lots of hearty "caldos" ...
