    Hi Shannon

    Haven't been on here much recently - work and general life have got in the way.
    Hope all is going ok for you.
    Please try not to let the numbers on the scale cloud your view of how far you have come.....and you have come a long way.
    Keep on fighting the good fight and all will be well I'm sure.
    Kia Kaha
  2. I wanted to say thank you to everyone who responded to my question, welcomed me to Gastric Sleeve, and visited my page. Your comments were inspiring, and your input was of great help in me finding a reasonable means of consuming my foods.

About Shannon'sVSG
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
It's been a long, hard road., but after experiencing a failed RNY in 2002, I decided to revise what had been attempted and give WLS another go. My VSG surgery date was on September 19, 2017, so I am new to this particular experience. None the less, I plan to make this work not only for myself, but for my health and for my family.

So...my wife and I were out shopping earlier today when I thought I might take it upon myself to look for a scale. My thought regarding this matter was "what if I want to take a peek now and again?" My wife was against it from the moment I had the idea, and you want to know something? She was right.

We looked all over the store for a scale - any kind of scale for that matter - and could not find a single one. I found this interesting in light of my most recent revelation.

9 Months Post-op (and other off topic subjects)

by Shannon'sVSG on 06-21-2018 at 04:27 AM
Well, it would seem I have missed my 9 month post-op anniversary, but it was for good reason.

I was on vacation in Minnesota over the course of the past couple of days. My wife and I (along with my mother-in-law) spent the past two days in Minneapolis wherein we took in a Boston Red Sox/Minnesota Twins baseball game!

To say this was a good time was the understatement of the season. Although my beloved Red Sox ultimately lost with a final score of 6-2, I had the time

Dead to Me (R.I.P. Electronic Scale)

by Shannon'sVSG on 06-19-2018 at 04:14 AM
As the title of this blog post implicates, the digital scale my wife and I were using has finally stopped working. What I thought was a simple battery fix is in all actuality the result of water inadvertently dripping into the numbers reader. From that moment on, it will only read "error."

"Error." I have to laugh at that because no truer statement could come from that monstrosity of electronic garb. It had become the bane of my existence, and as such, I found

What A Ride This Has Been

by Shannon'sVSG on 06-16-2018 at 05:52 AM
Before each one of you begin yelling at me for what I am about to say, give me the courtesy of at least hearing me out. Then...and ONLY THEN are you allowed to give me the tongue lashing I so well deserve.

I have all but given up on the scale.

I am no longer looking at it as a barometer for my weight loss success. I am simply utilizing it as a means to gauge how I am doing - but only on a weekly basis for now (I am considering switching to a bi-weekly weigh-in.)

A Celebration of Sorts: Part 2

by Shannon'sVSG on 06-15-2018 at 06:15 AM
I understand this is off VSG WLS topic, however in light of a recent post wherein I touched base regarding my education...I wanted to share the latest information regarding my educational status.

I found out yesterday evening that I have been accepted into the Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Health Science: Trauma track at Grand Canyon University. This is keeping in line with what I was previously enrolled for prior to moving from Phoenix this past year. In addition, it means I
