On December 21 2012 I had Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy or VSG, a restrictive Weight Loss Surgery that limits the amount of food I can eat before I become full. This blog is a record of my trip to new, healthier me.

I hope you enjoy following me and my Sleeve "Jelly", on our weight loss adventures!

Quite actually if I wanted to date just any body, I could. If I want a keeper, or a guy that’s not an asshole, I need to be pickier than that. 

New dress! Thrift store find. Can’t remember the size but lately I’m only buying mediums.

Cut my 20 short but got my mile. Ti.red and the treadmill was interminably boring. Might have to start doing cardio outside.

No matter how far out you get, you’re still a WLS patient. Your body is still altered and it still works differently. Losing weight and remaining healthy still requires the same rules… So trying to lose weight line “normal” people isn’t going to work like it worked in the past.
