I have a VSG stomach as part of my DS (and much less malabsorption than a normal DS since I have a huge common channel). I just had my surgery at the end of March, so it's still a bit new to me. The new tummy takes some getting used to. I'm about a month and a half out, and I am still sometimes surprised by how little I can eat. I haven't been tracking my calories at all, but I eat only a very small fraction of what I could eat before, and being full is a whole new experience - uncomfortable to the point of almost painful - so I have no desire to overstuff myself.
Highest known weight: 324
Weight on morning of DS surgery: 308.5
Got down to about 185 before pregnancy;
