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 just realized this morning that I haven't had the urge to weigh myself in over a week! I was getting on pretty much daily since my surgery. I see the difference in my clothing and I can feel the difference in my body so I know that I'm losing still but frankly, I might just move to only weighing at my 1 month mark from now on. It's so liberating to not have that scale addiction!
