I live and work in Kansas City. On September 14, 2011, I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG). I was very successful at loosing weight, and got off 50-pounds by January 2012. However, Christmas and my family arrived and messed me up. Every since then, my life has been VERY stressful, and I haven't been following my diet very well, though I have continued to eat less and tried to make sure I eat enough protein and drink enough water. Also, I have been very consistent in taking my bariatric vitamins and fish oil, so that my metabolic profile is good. I have been told that 50-pounds is the average weight loss for a VSG. And I am really happy about keeping that off. But, now I am ready to get back at it. I would like to loose the rest of my weight, so that I am no longer obese, and get into better shape. I also want to develop some new good habits.
