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.

Happy 2012!

2012... here we are!

Last year was a year of physical changes... this year is one of geographic! This year will mark not only our 2 year wedding anniversary but also a 1 year WLS anniversary and a complete move to another province, new job and new lifestyle.

Here's to another year of growth and finding where and who I am ready to be in my new body and new life. Adding muscle to my frame for strength and adding a sense of well being to my emotional side for balance.

My new mantra for this year... we only have 1 life, enjoy every single moment of it. Don't wait for "later, tomorrow or when I retire..." do it NOW!
