Just a place to keep my journal online. I had Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy on 12/20/2010 and am doing GREAT with it! I found out in December 2006 that I have non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, which means that I'm eating gluten-free, or at least trying to. It's difficult, but not impossible (obviously) - yes, you really -can- live without bread. ;-) I'm fully convinced that going gluten-free is what has facilitated my actually having any kind of success because I've tried LOTS of diets/programs and have only managed to lose a couple of pounds here and there. I fully intend to reach my goal and stay there. Life is much too short to be unhealthy and unhappy!

My Goals:
Short term: Onderland, baby! I will re-learn how to eat and how to relate to food. I want to regain the flexibility I once had and improve my overall physical condition.

My Program:
I'm following plan given to me by my practice's nutritionist, concentrating on getting protein first and am keeping a log here, too, so I'm doubly accountable. I'd taken some time off of exercise due to illness, but am getting back in the swing of cardio/stretching everyday and strength 2-3X/week (once I'm released to start weightlifting).

Personal Information:
I've been married for 14.5 years to my wonderful husband and we are the parents to a furperson, Kassie. I'm a graduate of the University of Tennessee and began graduate studies in the School of Information Science this summer.

Other Information:
