About VSG

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

Goal clothes shopping

I was told that I should try and find a "goal outfit".  Something to look forward to wearing.

I've tried to do it a few times.  I can't bring myself to buy anything.  I've been through so many diets in the past.  So many FAILED diets.  I'm afraid to buy something that I will fail to fit into.  I know this surgery will make losing weight easy but for some reason I feel like I should make my goal weight "easy" to reach... and my goal outfit, less difficult to attain.

It's something that I just need to get over I know but its not easy.  The diet mentality, the fear/expectation of failure yet one more time.... its hard to get over.  I tried to talk to hubby about it a little today but he doesn't understand.  I know he wants to but he's been slim/normal weight his entire life.  He just doesn't know what its like to be on diets for 1/2 your life.
