On December 21 2012 I had Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy or VSG, a restrictive Weight Loss Surgery that limits the amount of food I can eat before I become full. This blog is a record of my trip to new, healthier me.

I hope you enjoy following me and my Sleeve "Jelly", on our weight loss adventures!

Interesting news to pass on to someone looking for financing for WLS

Coworker took this pic of me today. HATE IT. This is to remind me that I’m not where I want to be and tell my behind to GET BACK TO WORK.

Meant to snap a pic before lunch but the greedy was strong with this one. Ordered Jason’s Deli sandwiches and pasta salad for the masses, a salad for me. Grilled salmon with Asiago cheese atop romaine lettuce. Not eating the Caesar dressing. Added salt to taste. Good stuff and filling.

I dropped my cals down pretty low this week trying to see 173.4 and I still haven’t seen it. I am tired of starving and being lightheaded, so I give up until after my next cycle. I haven’t even had any energy to work out and give myself a boost. Booo. Today I had a bacon egg and cheese sandwich from Dunkin and a cup of coffee and it was good. 

So there.

I was told there would be cookies for posting a photo of myself at work. I don’t see any cookies. I’ve been hoodwinked. Bamboozled.

I know many of you tout the righteousness of almond “milk”, but not only is it VERY low in nutritional content compared to an equal serving of actual ALMONDS, it actually stresses the California water reserves far more than a serving of actual ALMONDS and it costs a shit-ton more!

If you’re anti dairy milk due to lactose intolerance, or due to the nasty industry that dairy farming has become, switch to soy milk - it’s PACKED with nutrients and calcium.

This is a bummer. I like almond milk in my tea. I guess I could just go back to regular milk - I wasn’t drinking almond milk for any special reason. 

Many people switch to almond or soy milk post surgery because they become lactose intolerant. It is a known post surgery symptom.

We aren’t hipsters..we’re just trying to have something to make our protein shakes with.

BAH.

I bounced up. GRRRRRR.

One more day of being really really good and I’ll hit that mark! #chasinggoal #wls #vsg
