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.

Feeling pretty good. 2 1/2 (ish) weeks post op. Tiredness is starting to subside. Mentally I'm ready to get back to the gym but I don't know if I can handle it physically yet. Going to give the treadmill a try tomorrow I think. I'm ready to start exercising again.

Weight loss has been pretty steady.  I'm averaging a pound a day.  Some days I lost nothing, others I lose double the amount so it all works out to aboyt a pound a day.

I've been having a hard boiled egg every day for protein. And because I like them.  Yesterday I tried some cheese.  It didn't sit so well.  I also had chicken salad, it wasn't too bad.  Sliced up some pickle into it, I liked having the crunch!  I'm averaging about 500-600 calories a day.  I could easily forget to eat all day.  It's weird to have this feeling.  I'm never really hungry, more like I sometimes have a hollow type feeling so I'm taking that as my hunger cue.  I'm still not able to eat more than about 2-3 oz of anything either.  Getting in my water is a little harder these days now that I've moved to soft foods.  With the sleeve, they don't want you to drink 30 min before or after eating so when you're trying to get in the calories and protein for the day, its hard to fit the water in as well.
