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.

this and that...

Water is sooo much easier to drink lately.  I still can't drink too much at a time because I will end up with nausea  but at least it doesn't hurt anymore.

I started fruit.  I love strawberries.  2 and I'm full and oh so happy. Gawd they're so good.

Hubby made pork lettuce wraps for us last night for dinner.  I only had 1 and I was stuffed. It was hard for me to stop and not finish the one I had because my mouth was so happy but afterwards, sleevie let me know that I'd had too much and I should have had 1/2 to 3/4 of it instead.  Lesson learned.

My 1 month surgiversary is on Friday the 27th of May! 

I need to remember to measure this week and post them here so I can keep track.  I hope to see some impressive things in the inch loss department.  It's funny how when you're sleeved, losses like 20 lbs seem "easy" and like you're a slow loser.  Pre-VSG I would have been beside myself to lose 20 lbs in a month but now, its easy to feel like a bit of a failure when you compare to others in the same time frame/journey.  Worst thing to do is compare but it happens whether you mean it to or not.
