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.

heavenly smells

My favourite smell in the whole wide world is baking bread.

Every day I take the commuter train to work and I walk through pedways to get to my office tower downtown.  I have to pass a store on my way called "Press'd" that sells sandwiches and soups.  My salivary glands are now relating where I am in the pedways like Pavlov's dog does to the bell.   I get to a certain point in the pedway and even though I can't yet smell the fresh baking breads, my mouth is suddenly salivating at the soon to smell yummy goodness.

It's a bittersweet position since I don't eat that stuff anymore and frankly really... I physically couldn't.  I LOVE the smell though and savour it every single morning.

  1. I love the smell of fresh bread too! I don't have to walk past Press'd though-but Fat Franks hangs out by my building at lunch time. I breathe in deeply and keep walking. So far anyways. But isn't it wonderful to be able to enjoy the smell of something so completely?
