Surgery Day!

Today is the day! It’s surgery day! The day I cut out 2/3rds of my stomach and start a new life. I’m excited for my new life to begin and also a tiny bit nervous about cutting out a good chunk of one of my organs just so I can lose weight. I’ve lost 12 pounds on the bariatric surgery liquid pre op diet and of course that gets me

Bariatric Surgery Pre Op Liquid Diet days 2-14

I could have kept writing the same shit about how much the bariatric surgery pre-op diet sucks, but I was too busy getting all my freelance work done for the month so I would be able to relax after surgery. The bariatric surgery pre op liquid diet days 2-14 are the same as day 1. The only difference is by day 3 the headache has gone away as well as

Day 1 of Pre – Op Liquid Diet – Kill Me Now

Today is Day 1 of the pre-op liquid diet. I won’t lie, it sucks. It’s actually my 2nd Day 1 because originally my surgery was scheduled for a week sooner but the nurses at the hospital planned to strike during that time so it was pushed back by a week. Initially, like in the first two hours of my first day 1, I thought to myself, “I got this, this

Bariatric Surgery Journey Continues

I just finished my ultra sound appointment down at the hospital. It was pretty uneventful. There are signs all over the room saying the technician is unable to give results and yet I still asked. She didn’t answer. I also had my initial sleep study appointment to find out if I need a sleep study. Apparently they give one to everyone considering bariatric surgery so I get one. I was

Bariatric Surgery Personal Story: Second Appointment with my Nutritionist

I had my second appointment with my nutritionist today. I am proud to announce that I am exactly the same weight I was last month. And that took some work. I got on the scale about a week before my appointment and realized I’d gained two pounds. I didn’t have to lose weight for approval for surgery, but I am not allowed to gain any weight. I had a week

Fitbit vs Apple Watch

Fitbit vs Apple Watch – Which is better? If you’re thinking about getting a fitness tracker you’ve probably wondering which is better. I’ve been using a Fitbit for about two years now, sadly I’ve been through four of them. I’ve also been using an Apple Watch for about 6 months or so. There are pros and cons to both of them so it really matters what it is you want

Making Small Changes

It’s still January and many of us are still trying to keep to unrealistic New Year’s resolutions. In my now 50 years of life on this planet I have learned that making small changes is the only way to make big changes. That making New Year’s resolutions is more of an exercise in futility than it is an exercise in improving ones life. Don’t get me wrong, I had the

Why Fat Acceptance is Wrong

Fat acceptance is wrong, and if you’re fat you’re going to suffer for it. For the last couple of years there’s been a huge push for Fat Acceptance. Fat acceptance, fat liberation, fat activism and fat power are all about removing the stigma associated with being fat and accepting fat people for who they are without bias or discrimination. Now don’t get me wrong – I don’t think anyone who

Bariatric Surgery Personal Story: First Appointment with my Nutritionist

The is part of my bariatric surgery personal story, the first appointment with my nutritionist. The appointment went great, I really like her, which is extremely important. My insurance requires 6 appointments with a dietician or nutritionist. They have given me credit for one appointment I had with my endocrinologist last year, so I only have to meet with her 5 times. I also have to meet with a psychologist and
