I loved reading this thread! So many reminders that the VSG is a tool and that the choice to be healthy starts with me. I struggle sometimes (who doesnt) but I don't restrict myself - I let myself have a few bites of cake one day, and then I remember to log it in my food journal and be accountable for it. I don't have a goal/dream weight - I have a dream lifestyle! Posts like this make me remember why I had the surgery - and that was to enjoy my life and all of the wonderful activities out there.
