VSG EDUCATION & INSIGHTS

Please listen to your body folks. I don’t know how people manage to re-stretch their stomach after #VSG.

In 1 year I have overindulged twice and the first time was on accident.

1st time: A seafood binge on my birthday, I had just got onto soft foods and I was a little too excited ( almost 3 weeks post op)

2nd Time: Drinking and eating at the same time and over filled my belly (like 2 weeks ago)

When you have Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy you are informed that you should not to eat and drink at the same time (it prevents overwhelming your stomach). You are encouraged to eat slow and take small bites. Thoroughly chew your food until it is basically mush (helps to digest better)

Guys please make it easier for yourself especially during your first year of recovery. This photo displays the usual amount of food I can eat in a setting before I FEEL FULL! I have learned to listen. Right now I am 1 year 2 weeks post op. I eat a lot of small meals throughout the day and I am completely satisfied.

On another note @starbucks hit the nail on the head with these egg bites. OMG they are lite and fluffy, and sooooooooooo good I’m saving the other one for midday snack

  2. Chachi – Atlanta, Georgia – I underwent bariatric surgery on January 29th, 2020. I had a procedure done called Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy aka VSG. I recently celebrated my "Surgiversary" and decided to share my journey on a more personal level. I dropped 90lbs over the course of a year. Join me on this journey of self discovery, empowerment, and inspiration. Together we'll experience the VSG lifestyle, where I will offer you an in depth experience on things like pre and post operation struggles, advantages and disadvantages of VSG, how this procedure has changed my life and of course the amazing before and after photos.

    I’m really happy that I found your blog. I was just sleeved on October 19, 2021, and you’re the first blog that I’ve found on WordPress about VSG. I’m going to follow you, because I really appreciate the wisdom that you’re sharing as a VSG veteran and success story. I am documenting my journey on my blog as well, and hope to have all these beautiful post-op pictures of myself looking like a skinny legend like you do! You look gorgeous and healthy, and I am sure you probably feel even better on the inside that you look on the outside. Congrats, girl!
