The Weightloss Traveler

Yrs Before and 18 Months After VSM Done 6-5-14

Recommended Posts

I had the vertical gastrectomy at 66 years old and it has changed my life in wonderful ways. It hasn't been only about the more obvious benefits like health and beauty. I learned (and continue to learn) how to establish boundaries with people that nourish me physically, emotionally and spiritually instead of take.  By loving myself more, new loving people have come into my life.  I am dating a loving, supportive, sexy guy. Love and blessing to the people on this forum for their support before and after my surgery.  I encourage those of you reading this who are "on the fence" trying to decide whether to do this to weight/wait no longer.

Thanks! I've had more compliments on the giraffe shirt than weight loss. I got it at Ross (really!)
