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.

Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Travel

  1. Where did your most recent trip take you?  Christmas/New Years I was on Vancouver Island and Vancouver.  
  2. Is there a place that you’d like to visit that you haven’t yet?  If so, where?  Cuba, Italy, Spain.... 
  3. Do you travel lightly, or do you cram as much into your luggage as possible? I usually overpack.  I like to have options!!
  4. Do your eating and exercise habits change when you travel? If so, how?  I tend to eat less protein when I'm travelling which isn't a good thing.  I need to work on that!
  5. Tell us about a place you’ve been that you’d like to go back to. Greece.  Definitely.  I'm trying to convince hubby to go.  The history there just blew me away.  I was so humbled to be standing in places that were once thriving cities 1000's of years ago.
  6. Do you prefer to travel at a certain time of year?  Feb-April usually... when its cold here!
  7. If you had to choose, would you go to the beach or the mountains? Beach.  We get enough cold whether when I live.  I love the sun.  Especially since WLS, I just soak in the heat!
  8. Have you ever needed a passport to travel?  Yep most of the time.  I like leaving Canada alot :)
  9. Do you collect anything in your travels? Not really... just mementos
  10. Where do you plan to go next?  Next up is Vancouver again in May to find a place to live there.... other than that?  Maybe Mazatlan?
Now it’s your turn! Don’t forget to come back to share a link in the comments!  Happy Monday friends!


  1. I always think it's great to stumble on another Canadian when I'm bouncing around blogs, I've click on two links from FMM and they have both been to Canadian blogs, strange! Have fun travelling!

  2. Stopping by from FMM! I would love to visit Greece! My cousin travels there quite frequently and I'm always in awe of his photos. Such a beautiful place and its always nice to see another over packer!

  3. Greece is one of the countries I'm dying to see when we go to Europe - so much history! Nice to "meet" another Canadian!

  4. Came by from FMM. I feel the same way about Greece. It was such an odd sensation to stand there and think about the history of it all, who stood there before me, what they thought, what life was like, etc. It makes everything in North America seem so ... superficial? Not sure what word I want, but that's the closest I can get. New? Irrelevant? Temporary?

  5. Looking forward to exploring your blog further. Stopping in from FMM. www.learningtolovethegym.blogspot.com

  6. Liked this FMM topic :). I would LOVE to go to Greece, everyone I know who's been has LOVED it!


  7. Hi Cheryl! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I agree, it's so nice to come across other Canadians....especially another Albertan(even if not for much longer).

    It seems you love to travel, I'm sure you'll love Mazatlan. Other than the small places on the way when we drove there, it's the only place I've been in Mexico. I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but I've loved it each time we went and miss it so much!
