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.

I'm still really having difficulty getting in my water.  Honestly, I try but I feel like I'm drowning in water sometimes.  I am so busy sometimes at work that I barely have a chance to pee let alone get my sips in.

I drink 1 -1.5 cups mixed with my protein shake in the morning, 1/2 cup of coffee, 1 cup water in the afternoon.... and that's about it.  I'm really not good at this part.  :(  I LIKE water, I just can't take in the amounts that I used to be able to so I find it harder to get in my daily amounts. 

Any tricks?


  1. I got a really cool water bottle that I like. It's insulated and I fill it up and drop some Crystal Light in it. So I know if I drink three in a day I'm good to go. I take it everywhere with me.

  2. I don't like warm water, so I have to drink it fast and get rid of it before it warms up :). We also put lemon juice in our water a lot-it's good for your digestion and adds flavour. Cucumber slices are good too, or berries, but they get soggy. I started out using the individual servings of crystal light. Find a flavour you like and run with it! Good luck :)
