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.

Goal setting has always been scary for me.  In the past, I've either hit my goals for a very brief period, or I've not hit them at all.  Fear of failure makes me loathe to try goal setting again.  But, I know that it gives me something to aim towards and I know the sense of accomplishment I felt when I reached the 199, 190 and 189 goals.

So, I'm changing my ticker.

The last time I lost weight (2 years ago) I got to 152 lbs.  I was trying so hard to see the 140's.  So, my goal is 149.  When I get to 149, I will re-assess my goal down to the 130.  But for now, instead of focusing on all that distance between 130-149, I'm going to just focus on 149.

My weight loss seems to come in spurts.  I won't lose anything for about a week or so, then I lose a few pounds.  I'm not going to stress it.  I wish it would come off more consistently but it doesn't, so it doesn't.  This isn't a race.
