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.

151 lbs!!!

The lightest I've been in over 15 years!  I really didn't think the scale would be showing a loss as I've been hovering over the same few pounds for a few weeks... and I've been having some issues in the bathroom..TMI I know!

I'm so happy I had this surgery.  Best decision ever.

Today, I'm going to work the Health & Lifestyle Show for Weight Loss and Beyond.  I'm a little nervous someone I work with will see me and find out I've had the surgery.  I'm still keeping that on the down low at work.  It's a hard line between wanting to tell people I know and keeping some personal privacy as well.

Last night was my company Christmas Party.  I rocked a sweet dress...


  1. Amazing dress!! You look gorgeous and stunning in it!

  2. Yay for 151 lbs! You look great!

  3. Thank you! I want to go back to my 220 lbs me and tell her to be patient and in less than a year she'll be feeling so amazing. I've had a pretty easy go of it frankly. No complications (unless you count a rash from the surgical tape)... I know what and how much of anything I can eat and I don't feel hungry ever. More, an emptiness than that awful gnawing from before. I feel so liberated with this surgery and I plan to rock this tool for the rest of my life!
