following: Stevens Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Diet
performance: losing 1.8 lb a week
I've been up and down the diet scale all my life. My baby pictures show a HUGE baby but I was slender up until my mid teens when the weight battle began. In the past two decades I've lost my entire excess weight twice, but I regained it both times. I hit my top weight of 258 in February of 2013, and for a 5'3" woman, that was extreme. It was at that time I decided to have the bariatric sleeve gastrectomy. I had to delay the surgery until December, and as of Feb 4, 2014, have lost almost 50 lb. (some before the surgery). My main problem right now is getting in my water, since I feel full all the time, but I don't regret the surgery at all. It is changing how I look at food for the first time in my life, which I believe will prevent me from regaining once I've lost the weight.
