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.

It appears I may have hit the dreaded 3rd week stall. 3 days now with no loss.  I'm actually UP 1/2 pound this morning.  The increase in the scale is probably due to the beef jerky that I had before bed last night.  I won't do that again.  It was way too salty.  I've been told to expect a stall any day now so I'm not surprised but I only wish that it had been kinder to me and let me get into the 100's before I stalled.  Instead I'm teetering on the edge of ONEderland and its so close I can touch it but can't quite grab it.


Oh well.  I'll just keep plugging along!
