Hello, I'd just like to take a minute to share something. THE VSG PROGRAM WORKS!! What I mean by the "program" is whatever your surgeon tells you to do. I had my sleeve surgery in December, and have had significant weight loss. I've been in a stall for about the last 2 months or so. I know exactly why this happened. I am feeling so good, I let some old habits creep back in. Of course, NOTHING like the old days, but steering away from protein first, a sandwich here and there, a little pasta with the rest of the family. I've been very lucky that I have yet to find anything that doesn't agree with my sleeve. But that is a blessing and a curse. So, for August and September, my weight stayed the same. No gain (whew) but no loss either.
So my wife is scheduled for a sleeve surgery in a couple weeks and has started her "shrink the liver" diet. I decided to do the same thing, and have been following a shake for breakfast, shake for lunch and sensible dinner plan like she is, and in the last 6 days, I HAVE DROPPED 7 POUNDS!! So I guess my point is, (well I have a couple here)
#1, Don't take advantage of the "blessings" of food toleration, STAY WITH THE PLAN TIL GOAL
#2 When you do stray from the plan, DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP, GET BACK ON THE HORSE. We have the tools to get us where we want to be, USE THEM
# 3 It is never "too late" to reign it back in.
I can't tell you how good it feels to see the scale numbers dropping again. After 10 months, it is still as exciting as it was in the first few weeks.
