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.

I don't have many of them of me as a fatty. It's amazing how well I hid from the camera so it wouldn't be immortalized forever at how heavy I really was. I was looking through pictures for a wedding I was at in Punta Cana at the beginning of April this year.... I think I was in a total of 4 pictures. On purpose. I hated how I looked. And I hated more how I looked because all of the rest of the women were so slim and shapely. I just wanted to hide in our room the whole trip because of my weight. That makes me sad that I let my weight affect me having a good time with our friends and enjoying a wedding in a beautiful place.
