My Weight Loss Secret. Spoiler…It’s My Brain

Oh, hi! Did you know I have a blog? Apparently I've forgotten. Anyway, I thought I'd stop by and dust it off.

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 ate a lot of sweets this month (a lot for me post-VSG, not a lot for pre-VSG me). … [Read more...]

7 Months Post-VSG Check In

Hey everyone! Seven months since I had my stomach cut out through Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG)? Yes, yes it is. I had my 6-month check up with my bariatric surgeon last week and there was high-fiving. She's really happy with my progress, and doesn't see any trouble reaching my goal weight. She did tell me that I needed to start being careful about sugar now, as a lot of patients start craving … [Read more...]
