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.

Well the scale dropped back down that 1/2 pound I was lamenting about but I do think it was just water retention from the beef jerky however its nice to see it back to no gain.

I seem to be able to get my water in the last couple days much much better.  I'm not able to GULP but I'm still able to drink a fair bit at once.  It's a weird feeling though because I can't drink very much still because my lil sleevie fills up so fast and then I feel all sloshy.  Every time I drink a fair bit I have a fear that it will hurt and I'll start to puke so I drink and then wait with trepidation for the pain to start.  It doesn't seem to be happening anymore which is awesome.  I still get that food stuck feeling when I eat something and swallow too much at a time but no longer with water.  Looks like my swelling is headed down! yay!

We went to Boston Pizza last night for dinner and I ordered the appy Thai Chicken Bites.  Had about 3 pcs of chicken and I was full.  I did pretty good.  I even was able to steal one of his nacho chips with beef and chew that to mush and eat it down without pain. The rest is leftovers for hubby today :)

We're going camping this weekend. Looking forward to the quiet and relaxation.  I asked hubby to get me shrimp and fruit (berries)... mmmm, I get to have shrimps and fruits now. yay!
