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.

Yay! I was hoping I'd reach my goal of 50 lbs down before the 27th  (4 month WLS anniversary). I did!

My next major goal is to see 149 lbs. I wanted to see the '40's so bad last time I lost weight and I could just never get there. So that's my next major goal with my ultimate goal being 135 lbs

I'm pretty happy with myself. The best thing about this sleeve is that while anyone can lose weight on 600 cal a day, the sleeve can save me from myself by not allowing me to binge and overeat in a moment of weakness/emotion/frustration etc.


  1. So happy for you. And even though I haven't had surgery yet I would think that the sleeve would keep us from regaining the weight too. Keep up the good work.
