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.

The last 2 month-ish has been hard. VERY hard. I've been having way too much wine. Way too often.
I'm fully aware that post-WLS transfer addictions are a serious problem. I KNOW that I should be careful that I'm not among that statistic but right now, its what I've been using to cope with my stress ... moving to a new province away from what I know and taking a new job with added responsibility.... Wrong or right, its what's working for me right now to deal. Stress has played a HUGE part in this and the method that I've chosen to do to deal with it. Hubby and I have even enabled each other completely in this. He's smoking, I'm drinking. We're both fully aware of what we're doing and how much we dislike each other's choices but are willing to overlook them right now
We both know that this is something that we need to change but we've chosen to accept it for what it is and to try not to judge the other person. We have yet to pick a "quit date" but it will be likely in the next week or so.
