The jist of what happens

This is a quick animation of how the gastric bypass works.

Quick summary:
Gastric bypass surgery makes the stomach smaller and causes food to bypass part of the small intestine. You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size. This reduces the amount of food you can eat at one time. Bypassing part of the intestine reduces how much food and nutrients are absorbed. This leads to weight loss.

I just need to remember:


  1. The things I miss when I don't check your blog for a few weeks!! Love you and want you to be happy and healthy. Maybe you can use your new toy to cut some vinyl for a scale just like that one :)
