    At my Surgeons office prospective patients are confused when I walk in, they don't believe I had surgery. I was told that I look naturally thin 😍

    On the 3 week plateau from hell.. It seems like an endless desert with sand dunes that represent the 1-2 pounds gain then dropped from day to day. Met with my weight loss group tonight and was told its normal. That this is sometimes like a step, plateau then drop, plateau then drop. Only for the plateau's to go on longer the farther away from the surgery date I get. Much like EDM, I can't wait for the drop. On top of it all, I lost my ass. Seriously.. its gone. All that cushion that I enjoyed lounging on eating what ever I ate, watching what ever was on the computer or tv... is gone. That glorious support system is vamoosed. I know this because my ass (tailbone) hurts all the time. I'm sitting on bone now and its sore. I am my own literal Pain in the Ass! (My family would say whats new, but who cares about them.. my butt hurts.) I have yet to bring a pillow with me everywhere I go to sit on, but I'm getting ready to as I sit for my job working on computers. So far losing the weight is a Pain. I hope it gets better.

    Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

    Hi Everyone, I am so glad I found this site. I go for my last dietician appointment on Tuesday, September 4th. Then they will submit it to insurance. I am turning 60 on September 30th and I have battled my weight all my life. I want to eliminate or have better control of my health issues. I have diabetes, sleep apnea, acid reflux, high cholesterol, etc. I can’t wait until I can schedule my surgery. I am hoping to have it in October.

    I'm officially 81 lbs down since I started my weight loss journey. I can't believe I've come this far and I'm just getting closer to my goal weight. I've set up 50 lb goal rewards for myself and not that long ago I hit my first weight loss goal. My reward was buy new underwear and burn the granny panties! lol Silly but it felt amazing to be two sizes smaller and not have to buy brief cut. VSG has been worth the pain and struggle. I never thought I would be the size I am now ever again. Hopefully someone reads this post and find it either humorous or inspirational or both hahaha
