New Year, New Resolutions

So it seems I haven’t blogged much over here in the past year. New Year, new resolutions! I won’t promise to blog every day, but I do hope to update more often than once a year. Last time I wrote I started PIYO. I think I did one day of it. As I recall I hurt my shoulder getting the DVD out of the box. PIYO was fun, and I

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

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

I Want Bariatric Surgery

I want bariatric surgery, I think. I’ve just about given up trying to lose weight on my own. My BMI is not high enough to qualify for bariatric surgery but because I have high cholesterol I still qualify for the procedure. I met with my doctor last week and he’s not completely against it.   I know a few people who have had bariatric surgery, the┬áRoux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure which

Whole30 Day 10

Today is the 10th day of my Whole30 journey and I’m not proud to say that I messed up. Yesterday was difficult to say the least. I was in great need of chocolate due to being all kinds of hormonal (ain’t perimenopause fun?) but I didn’t give in to the craving. I did, however, have a glass of wine last night to help calm my nerves after a particularly difficult

Whole30 Day 9

I’m on Day 9 of the Whole30 and right now I’d give my left arm for a piece of chocolate. I’m a righty so I think I can get through the temptation but I want some chocolate something fierce. I’m pretty sure this hormonal. I don’t want just any chocolate but I want, no, I need chocolate covered pretzels or peanut M&Ms. Washing it down with a glass of two

Whole30 Day 7

I’ve made it a whole week on the Whole30. Seven days is not to shabby considering I didn’t think I could even start this journey. Last time I checked the scale I was down 7 pounds but haven’t gotten back on it. That was two days ago. I got over my cookie craving without giving in and I’m pretty proud of myself for that. Stress sets off the cravings, pretty

Whole30 Day 6

OMG I WANT A COOKIE!!! I’m on Day 6 of the Whole30 and I want something sweet so badly I can hardly stand it. An apple is just not making up for the goodness that is an Oreo cookie. I’m resisting temptation but it’s very difficult especially because my daughter is sitting not to far from me munching on Golden Oreos. Part of me wants to kill her right now.

Whole30 Day 5

I’ve made it day 5 of the Whole30! I got on the scale today. I know I wasn’t supposed to but I just had to see if I had lost any weight. I’ve lost 7 pounds in five days on the Whole30!! I know it’s water weight and if I were to eat anything with sugar it would come back in spades but I’ll take it. It’s great motivation for

Whole30 Day 4

I’m on Day 4 of the Whole30 diet program. Still feeling really good and so far don’t miss the sugar that I’ve removed from my life. I do feel better. I’m not as achy but that could be partially due to the warmer weather we’ve been having now that spring is here. As I document my experience with the Whole30 I wonder how others fare? I have poked around in
