Just a lady named Alyssa navigating the deflated life.

My first attempt at weight loss surgery was in 2012. I was not ready in the slightest even though I believed I was. In 2016, I tried again and was approved, resulting in me having the vertical sleeve gastrectomy on February 20, 2017. When the weight started falling off, I came to realize I was essentially deflating, hence the reason I named this site The Deflated Life.
