Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

Hi all. I am back with an update on my gastric sleeve process. I’m so sorry it took so long to come back with an update. If you would like realtime updates please subscribe to my YouTube channel ( http://www.youtube.com/c/LMichelleLesstoLove ) and follow my Instagram (@lmichelle_less_to_love) page.

I was sleeved on October 2, 2017. I am very thankful to God and my surgical team because everything went well and there were no complications. I stayed in the hospital for one night then went home to recover. I am now three weeks post-operation and I am doing well. I am exercising, eating soft foods, my incisions are healed, and I have lost 27 pounds so far. I am currently at a stall with my weight, which is normal around the three week post-op mark but I am losing inches and my clothes are fitting better. Check out this video to see how surgery day went! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_mGtrVJG5E

Welcome Home Soldier!

I have been MIA for awhile because…MY SOLDIER IS HOME!!! He was deployed for 9 months to Iraq and we have been reintegrating and connecting for the past 2 weeks and I’m loving every minute of having him home! As some of you know, I originally started this blog to track my weight release journey during this deployment. Well, deployment is over and stats are in. I released a total of 24 pounds and 37 inches. My inches were significant and I’m happy about the pounds as well. Just because my husband is home doesn’t mean my journey is over. It is definitely continuing with him by my side. We are going on vacation in a months time so my next goal is 15 more pounds released by vacation. 

I have discovered that my limit with a green juice or smoothie cleanse is 3 days. After day 3 I’m like “GIVE ME FOOD 😩”, so I am learning ways to continue my cleanse without breaking the fast and going crazy after 3 days. I am loving cinnamon sprinkled apples with melted peanut butter as a snack and I’m excited about trying cauliflower pizza! Help your girl out and comment your favorite healthy snacks and foods below!
