I had VSG surgey on month ago and it's the most important decision I've ever made in my entire life.
As long as I can remember, I've been extremely overweight. Food was my comfort and consolation, something to turn to when I was bored or lonely, the antidote for every disappointment and reward for everything to be celebrated. Food was also a huge part of every social occasion, sometimes the sole reason for social interaction. It seemed as if I thought of food all the time and it was truly the priority in my life. This relationship caused me to balloon to 400+ pounds!
My VGS surgery has given me the tools to establish a totally new (healthy) relationship with food. Food is no longer the driving force in my life. I have lost 35 lbs. in the first month post surgery. I feel great!
My only regret is that I did not find a way to have surgery many years ago. My life would be so different. I have missed out on so many things because of my weight. Enjoyable experiences like going to the beach or pool, going to concerts or plays (because I can fit in the seats), traveling by air (and not being crammed into a seat way too small to accomdate me), sitting in a booth at a restaurant (and being able to fit comfortably), exercising (without being breathless or being in pain), and so on, and so on.
If you are unhappy about your weight and have lost weight over and over only to regain it (and more), please consider VGS surgery. It is changing my life dramatically and I know it could make a difference for you.
If you'd like to talk, I'd be happy to discuss any and all issues with you. Just please conisder VGS and do some homework about it.
