5 years post-op - I'm still alive, doing pretty great. I lost 139 lbs total (so far) and I'm trying to get my butt in gear to lose the rest of it, but I'm kinda lazy and I like Starbucks a little to...

A little something to add to my 2 year update - I posted back in October about the past two years since my VSG. I've lost 140-something lbs and kept it off, no problem. But what I didn't know at the time of my update was that I ...

Two years after VSG - Yesterday my gmail popped up a little reminder from Obesityhelp that it was my two year surgery anniversary! I thought I'd take the opportunity (a day late, but whatever!) to upda...

They aren't all happy stories - I just stumbled across a post by a sixteen year old girl whose mother is in ICU after surgery with Dr. Almanza. I am once again reminded of how very LUCKY I was to have come throug...

222 - That was how much I weighed yesterday. Of course I expect a little fluctuation, but hey... the scale has moved in the last month so that is happy news! I still haven't gotten aroun...

Move dammit! - For the past few weeks I've been fluxuating between 250 and 255. I can't seem to get below 250. I think I know why. Once I started my job, they keep feeding me. And I keep feeding ...

Oh the drama - Those crazy Dr. Almanza patients are stirring things up again! ;) Good for them... us... everyone. And, shockingly, it seems like people are starting to take things seriously. Hope...

Quickie Update - The scale is still moving in the right direction. So yay for that! It would probably move faster if chocolate covered raisins didn't exist. Otherwise, not a lot to update. I start ...

Slackitude - My surgery was a little over 12 weeks ago. I keep intending to do updated photos, but you see, I'm a slacker. Will try to get some done in the next week or so. Probably. Maybe.

Numbers and such... - Just for fun I did some measuring this morning. Overall, if I re-measured in the right spots, I have lost 28.75 inches. Not too shabby! And also... I GOT A JOB. Finally.

What I was going to say... - My mom and I were going through some old papers and photos when I came across an envelope that said "Heather - 6th Grade" on it. Inside were my report cards and some forms from my ...

In which I complain a little - I can't wait to have energy again. Lately I have been super tired. I either take six hour naps or I sleep for 12 hours straight. I know I'm probably not getting enough water or pro...
