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.

Vanity sizing

I loves it.

I went clothes shopping today.  For the first time since I regained all this weight.  I lived in sweatpants at home in the middle of a very deep depression the entire time I regained it so I didn't need work clothes.... now as I lose it, I need some as my current clothes are starting to fall off and hang on me in a very unflattering way.

I just have to express my absolute love for vanity sizing.  I'm FULLY aware that my current size does NOT put me in a size 14 and a Large (not XL! yay) but to hell with it... it feels fantastic to see that size on the back of my pants.  I don't care if its unrealistic and I'm fooling myself.  Whatever works!  Hell, I've been stuffed into Size 6 Lu Lu Lemon pants for the last year so size 14 is actually closer to the truth!

Tomorrow is my 2 month surgiversary.  Time for more measurements!!!
