Today is 7 months since I had my VSG! I weigh 201 (dang it - wanted ONEderland!!) and am wearing 12/14 bottoms and large tops. I feel great and think I look pretty good! I eat well, but still haven't started my exercise routine....I will, I will! My skin has tightened up nicely and my hair has quit falling out and there is lots of new regrowth. I was never BALD - but it DID thin!

Never been in pain, never thrwon up, never felt bad. All my blood work is great and I can't wait to see where I am at 1 year! My doc thinks 170......wow...I was like 15 last time I weighed that! I am smaller than when I graduated high school!

Anywone still on the fence, send me a message! More than happy to share my experience! ssmonte72@yahoo.com

Best thing I have ever done for myself!

Pre-diet weight 307

Day of surgery 292

Today 201

Thanks for posting, you look amazing.

I came on the thread today to read things like your post. It almost screams at me. I am having surgery Monday and am second guessing myself. Starting weight was 315, currently 297 and hope to be 294 on Monday. It's awesome to see your stats and know its possible. Thank you for sharing.

Me too! I'm on the liquid diet and my head hunger just won't shut up!

To the OP-How long were your phases back to solid foods? You're around my same weight that I'm starting at and I'm just so high strung waiting for my surgery on Tuesday.

I feel like the sensible me is has the wheel of the car but the crazy one that can't stop eating is in the passenger seat and pointing out all the wonderful food I'm driving past. It's driving me nuts.

My doc had me on two weeks liquids, two weeks soft foods(can cut with a fork) then whatever I tolerated! Protein first, then veggies. 3 oz of protein at a meal is a lot! I used a food scale the first month so now I can eyeball 3 oz pretty good. Sea food has been my friend as crab, fish and shrimp sit the mist comfortable in my tummy. I can eat whatever I want.... And queso and chips go down wAy too easy! Have to watch that! Going out to eat with hubby, I usually just add a side of shrimp to his order and pick off his plate- or order a protein app- I peel most breading off and have never felt deprived. Truly life changing! I still live food, and cook like a fiend! Making chicken, bacon, cheese meatballs for the game today!!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
