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.

Halfway to my ultimate goal... already!

Another 2lbs down since the beginning of January. I can't believe how quickly the weight has come off over the last month.

I'm eating anything I want (when I remember I need to eat) at this point. I have sweets/carbs in addition to my protein but it doesn't have the hold over it like it did pre-op.  One bite and I'm good... I don't need a whole bag of chips or candy, just a single bite is enough to satisfy my head hunger.

Also, I haven't had any carbonation in 9 months.  I remember my addiction to diet coke. It's funny, I don't even miss it. I really thought I would.

7 lbs left to get to 135 lbs.  I hope this weight loss slows down like they say it should.  Unless my body has another number in mind for it's happy place... I'm a small frame so there's definitely some wiggle room there I guess.


  1. I sure hope the craving for carbonation goes away! I am three months out and still miss Diet Pepsi!

    Awesome progress by the way!

  2. Thank you Sarah and Kara!

    I know that my head wanted the pop much more than my mouth or tummy did. I suppose NO carbonation is technically a fallacy as I had a sip once a couple months post op and it was enough to make me want to put it away so I just don't want it now. I didn't like it at all!

    I hope that happens for you too Kara!
