    Hi there! I am having VSG with Dr. Valenzuela on August 3rd so I wanted to introduce myself and see how your experience was. I have not seen many people on this site who have gotten the surgery with Dr. Valenzuela so was relieved when I came across your profile. You look great Best wishes for continued success in your journey!

    Hi - I am 6 days post-op and you seem to really know what you are talking about...I am at a loss today and don't feel like I know what the heck I am even doing...(sorry for this part!) I am having watery diarrhea, normal? What are the vits & sups you take? When did you start with protein shakes, and what do you add to them? And the VSG Bible, where can I find that? Your help will be greatly appreciated! I thought I was prepared...I thought I knew what was going on...and today, I am a weepy lost hot mess
  7. It's been one year since being sleeved. It has been one of the best and most important decision of my life. I'd do it again in a heart beat. 15 lbs to goal!

Lessons I've learned 6 years post sleeve!

by AngelNP on 01-05-2019 at 12:40 PM
This is what I have learned over the past 6 years post op!

Your sleeve is a tool. It's not the end all. You must watch what you eat. I was horrified that I had lost weight from 213 to 162 lbs and then went back up to 195 (July 2018) Currently, I am at 169 lbs (01/05/2019) and more fit.

When you are able to eat solid food, I recommend a group on Facebook called Push For Your Better by Amy Smith. I am still a sugar/carb addict. This is the main reason why I gain

Toning Exercises

by AngelNP on 07-08-2013 at 01:10 AM
Welcome visitors,

START: High, clean protein (lean meats/protein shakes), vegetables.
WATER, WATER, WATER...do don't forget the WATER!

FATS: Health fats are the key to keep fat off

I've been requested to post before and after photos. I am the one on the furthest right in the group shot. I don't know how to add additional photos. It only allows me one photo at a time.

The before shot was taken August 2012 at my 30 year reunion with a high school friend (4 months prior to my surgery December 7th, 2012).

Have a great week everyone!

Dietary Protein "Eating Your way to proper protein, even when you don't eat meat"

by AngelNP on 02-25-2013 at 06:23 PM
This is article is by Luncas Dyer, Certified and Licensed Sports Nutritionist in the magazine Jiu-Jitsu:

I'm going to give the reader's digest version of the article. You body can only absorb 42 grams of protein at one meal unless you have a digestive problem, then you will absorb less. The need factors range from 0.5 (sedentray, no sports training) to 1.1 (heavy weight trainer, athlete doing "2 a days training"). Even though your body will absorb this much protein,

Zumba tonight for one hour & possibly hitting the gym (eliptical 30 min, light weights for arms, and ab workout!). Looking forward to starting my week off right!
