Hi fellow VSG's, I am happy to say that my A1c has gone from 6.9 to 6, I can't believe it! I feel terrific, more energy and stamina. What about all this ugly skin, though? Fat fills out wrinkles, no doubt! I try to take it a day at a time and focus on

I had my 3-month follow up on August 15 with Bariatric RN. I didn't quite make the goal I set for myself of 30 pounds by 3 months, but came very close. She told me that at my age and body type I am making excellent progress and my BP was good, and I fee

After struggling with the band for so many years, I am finally seeing the results of clean eating and exercise. I feel GREAT! The downside, if there is any, is my clothes don't fit and nothing looks right. I went to my local thrift stores and nothing l

So far, so good. After struggling with lap band for 10 years, I am so grateful for the VSG surgery and to finally have a tool that works. I am on puree foods. I am really sticking to the after surgery plan given to me by the clinic and trying hard not

I am beginning to think I am one of the lucky ones, no excessive pain, nausea, gas, just about back to normal.  Now I need to step up my exercise.  I will continue to walk a little more each day un...

I'm so happy to be on the other side. The removal of my lapband and new VSP went smoothly. Healing, resting, drinking, etc., I can't believe how good I feel, other than soreness, swelling, etc., this could be the honeymoon phase, but so far, so good.

Just wanted to give a quick update. Dr. Jones removed my lap band and did VSG on Monday. There were no complications and I am amazed at how well I'm doing. Got out of the hospital today and hoping I can remember to do everything. Walk, sip, siprometer
