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.

Over the weekend while we were camping I had some potato chips and I had 3 alcoholic drinks (clamato and vodka).  My guts weren't happy and I regret it immensely.  I spent a fair bit of time in the bathroom when I got home last night as a result. Sleevie was NOT happy.

I gained 1.5 pounds.  Back to 201.  I regret it and I'm back to clean eating today.  I know its not actual fat gained because I still wasn't eating near the calories I would need to in order to gain REAL weight but its disheartening anyway as I was hoping to see a lower number when I got home.

Lesson learned.  Stick to proteins first, if there's room, veggies.  Avoid carby items as they go down way too easily ... and that includes alcohol.
