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!

No matter how many times I read these things - I’m still so worried about how it will actually end up being.

It’s the best thing I ever did for myself. No regrets.

Samesies!

Starvation can make you lose some weight though.

So can chopping of your leg - that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea

Enjoying the Sleeved Life. I went a long, long time without feeling attractive. That was a high hill to climb over. Not saying I always feel beautiful, but it’s been a long, long time since I felt ugly.  #wlsmusings

Dear WLS Patients:

Please stop wasting your time, efforts, and money on products that claim to shrink your loose skin.

Didn’t you learn anything in this process? There is no commercial quick fix. It’s that simple.

Just like you learned that All Those Weight Loss Supplements don’t work. Just…

AMEN.

My dad recently told me, “There are many people who will put you down. Don’t be one of them.”

And that sticks with me every single day.

Hiccups are my sign to stop eating. Some people get a runny nose. Some feel pressure in the chest or back. 

A hiccup is a sign, to me, that my sleeve is full, stop now or suffer the consequences. I hate that overfull, sliming, gonna hurl feeling.
