A year y'all! It's been a year since my Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG)! I am pretty sure I've said this in each post, but I can't believe how quickly time has passed. I haven't met all of my goals for this year, but I am beyond thrilled that I took this step to being healthier. I really wanted to make it under 200 pounds in a year, but I didn't make that happen. I blame sugar. I know it's going … [Read more...]

Oh My Word…for 2017

Hello everybody! Guess what? It's been 8 months since I had my Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG)! I think the post title might have given that away. So, things are going well, trucking along. Remember when my doctor told me to be careful about getting lax with my food intake? I should have listened more closely. I ate a lot of sweets this month (a lot for me post-VSG, not a lot for pre-VSG me). … [Read more...]
