Pre-op! New to Thinner Times!

12 posts in this topic

Hi, I am new here, My name is Jessica, I am getting the VSG ( Vertical Gastric Sleeve) next month, and I am so excited! You have no idea how much I have been researching and stalking other VSGers. I have been overweight my entire life, well almost, since I was 5. I have been researching wls for 11 years now - since I was 17. I am more than ready to start this journey and cannot wait to see the real me shine through. I am 5'3" I currently weigh 325lbs, but my highest was 353. I am already a gym rat, and cannot wait to have the VSG as a tool to help me reach my ultimate goal, which is really just to be healthy. I hope to make lots of friends, compare stories, and eventually help others seeking the same journey. :)

What a positive statement! 

Your habit of exercise will really, really help you. It enhances both your likelihood of reaching your goal weight, and is a strong factor in decreasing the risk you will regain significant weight once you get to your low weight.
