Weight loss & surgery

I’ve been blogging about my stomach surgery – laparoscopic gastric sleeve – and have found that readers have responded positivly to finding out about the surgery from a first hand (and TMI) view. I want to share this experience for anyone who is curious, but mainly for anyone who is considering getting it done – I hope this will show you that you can do it too, and it will be worth it.

I also post pictures of my smaller meal portions on Instagram – follow me @sleever_eats
