Hi everyone! Almost a year since I cut out my stomach, I can't believe it! It's been 11 months since I had Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) and the time has flown. November was a big slow-down for me in working out. I think after working out so much in October, I took a bit of a break.

Three Months Post-Op Check-In

Getting my shrink on!

Oh, hi! Here's the check-in for three months post-op after having Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG or a sleeve). I still feel really good! My energy level is good, I'm able to get in all my hydration and supplements, and I'm hitting my protein goals. My weight loss is slowing down a little, but I didn't exercise much in March, so I suspect that is part of the slow down. Here are things that … [Read more...]
