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.

My first stall

It was inevitable really.  I'm not terribly concerned about it although I sure would like to see the scale moving again.  I didn't lose anything for 2 days, this morning I'm down a half pound.  I haven't been counting halfs though, only full pounds, so it doesn't feel like a victory to me.  I'm going to keep trying to get my water and protein in and not sweat it at all.  It's not really a stall per se as really only stalls are more than 2 weeks normally but in the world of VSG, especially this early on, its a mini stall starting.

Once I'm feeling up to exercising, its going to be a whole new ball game baby.
