  1. Quick Update

    Doing very well. Had surgery 2 years, 2 months ago, and have lost 127 pounds! I was thrilled at losing 100 pounds but its still coming off. I haven't weighed this since high school. I don't regret having the VSG at all, and I struggled in the beginning... boy did I.
  2. It's been A While.

    Hello! It's been a while since I have been on here. Life happens.
    It was two years ago this month, December 2016, when my life changed. I began the pre-op diet and 3 months later I had the VSG surgery done.
    I got to admit, I had some real struggles those first few months after... no food tasted good, I was in starvation mode, I couldn't drink enough water like I had pre-surgery. But, 6 months after surgery I had dropped 102 pounds.
    I had been walking daily since a month after ...

  4. One Year Surgiversary!

    Hello fellow sleevers and soon-to-be-sleevers! It's been a while since I have been on here.
    Yesterday, March 24, 2018 was my 1st anniversary of having the sleeve surgery. What a year it has been. I lost 102 pounds by September 2017 and once I began increasing my caloric intake due to the zumba classes, jogging and walking I do faithfully each week (and honestly, I needed some carbs), I gained back a few pounds and have been holding steady. I have lost 4-5 dress sizes and am no longer the ...

    It's almost 10 months since surgery and I am still doing very well, sticking to my new normal.
    Don't get me wrong, there are times I WANT something I normally do not eat anymore and I will give in and eat a few Town House Flatbread Crackers because I refuse to feel like I am on a diet. I know how many I can eat without going berserk and once I have a few crackers, that's it. (Unlike the OLD days where I could polish off a box in one sitting.) ...
