Smoothie prep this week! Each bag is my mornings smoothie! All I have to do is add it to my new @nutribullet
thanks to @kleibs13
!!!!! Each smoothing has spinach, broccoli, strawberries, bananas, cinnamon, and Greek yogurt. Here’s to a new drink on the way to work!!!
Okay, this is going to sound like such a superficial post.. but ladies, let’s stop comparing ourselves!! I have amazing weight loss surgery followers from all around the world in the exact same journey as I am.. we all had the surgery, we all did the recovery, and we all have a small stomach now. Which means I am no better then you, as you are no better then me. I won’t name and shame, but I get messages all time from people who find it necessary to almost belittle me and make me feel guilty about the weight I have lost. These people have had the same surgery as me, but mite not have lost as much, yet! Or feel like they don’t look the same as me.. WELL! Let me tell you, you can hide a lot with clothes!!! My stomach is wrinkley, covered in stretch marks, I have loose skin and fat that still needs to be lost! Of course I look good in a push up bra and tights holding my saggy stomach in place. I don’t look like that naked tho guys! But I’m still happy!! So stop comparing yourself to others.. of course I see other with smaller stomachs and less skin and that’s amazing for them! But It shouldn’t deter me about all the effort I have made.. I’m happy for you, I’m happy for me. So have a photo of me after I hit -40kg and also have a video of my ballsack belly.

lazy af meal prep for the week 😬💁🏻♀️
28 ➡️ 38
I know a lot of people trip out about getting another year older...but I’m really not this year. Because I’m happier, healthier, and feel the most like myself I ever have. I finally know exactly who I am and I’m getting better at accepting it all, good & bad. 🎵I’m livin my best life🎵
For me, Sunday’s are the perfect day to work out 🏋️♀️ and try new things, go slow and enjoy a pretty much empty gym. It’s relaxing and different from week day work outs when I just wanna get in and out. Truth is, I don’t like working out much - I enjoy walks with my dog and just being overall more active, but the gym is really something I make myself go do because I want the results. You don’t have to love it - but you still need to do it. You don’t have to go every day, but consistency is good. You don’t have spend hours - but a good 30-45 mins of steady work is good. Make it work for you - everyone is different! #fitfam #fattofit #weightlosstransformation #bariatricsleeve #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #weightloss #fatgirlonamission #fatgirlfedup
Too often in my life have I done this... ESPECIALLY in relationships. The fear of change is real. The fear of being alone is crippling when you've never learned how to love yourself enough to BE alone with yourself.
If you ever have to ask yourself if you're settling.. hint: you are.
The left is two days after surgery, Feb 16, 2019. On the right is today. Externally there is a difference of 56 pounds. Internally how do I quantify the changes? If I could, I would have the girl on the right tell the girl on the left to hold on. I would tell her that soon she won’t feel so compelled to be invisible. I would tell her she has everything inside already. Looking at these two images I can easily say the girl on the right has hope for what is t come.
we did my son and daughter’s birthday party today, I made him an Oreo cake and a jojo siwa cake for my daughter. before I would have eaten a huge piece of both, today I was able to stop after a few small bites. I don’t know how I ever ate like I used to, I can’t even imagine trying to eat that much now 😷
