Hello I will be getting VSG on August 19th. Does anyone who of any books that can help me deal with change and to help me have the right mind set? I have always been over weight since I can remember and my mom brought up a good point on how I am going to respond to this change and how to deal with it.

I'm reading a book right now called "Bariatric Mindset". Got it on Amazon and I really like it. Very helpful.

The Obesity Code by Jason Fung. Excellent! Makes sense of the science behind obesity and weight loss.

Younger Next Year for women by Chris Crowley and Dr. Henry Lodge. This is full of life changing strategies, focusing on exercise. It meant more to me as I started my exercise program and is very motivational.

Both these books were required reading by my surgeon and I think they are both highly informative and motivating.

Hi there! I bought a few books before my op too as I knew the mental change would be a longer journey than the physical one. The book I've dipped into most has been Living With Bariatric Surgery by Denise Ratcliffe and Portion Perfection for Bariatrics. The former is very helpful at explaining the what to think about before you have the op. The latter is expensive but gives a great visual guide as to the portion sizes you'll be able to eat post-op (cos who knows what 150g or 120ml of food looks like?). Hope this helps!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
