Woo. Some of you will take the time to read this. Some of you are here for the hoe shit... I was going through some of my older posts, and realized I hadn’t done a sock post in a while. I dig my body currently so I was like “fuck it.” Ha! I saw the accidental shot (swipe) and I was like, “Damn guuuhhhlll, you THICC thicc...” which made me realize it’s been a while since I weighed myself, and considering I was tipsy when this happened... I decided to jump on a scale... and I saw 208lbs. I HATE how much power these stupid numbers have over me. IMMEDIATELY started crying. I was JUST 177?!? Wtfffff?!? But I know how I got here. Aside from carbs, my workouts have pretty much gone down to like...never? And I started to beat myself up. COMPLETELY forgetting that what started me down this road was how happy I was with my body currently. Before I saw the numbers on the scale, I was celebrating my curves, my dimples, my rolls, and my soft belly... after I saw those numbers I felt so much shame. It’s crazy how that works. I am sharing the photo I like along with the one that got these tears streaming. I just wanna make sure you know, I don’t love myself any less than I did before the scale happened. I just need to hold myself accountable for my “comfort.” Comfort is settling and no change occurs there... but personally... I’m still a fan of this body... Even if it still has to change. 🤷🏽‍♀️
When one of your closest friends says you look like a lollipop ... “Thin body, big head “. Lord, first you’re too fat, then you look like a lollipop, apparently 🤔🍭🍭 #vsg #wlssurgery #sleevegastrectomy #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #vsglife #vsguk #vsggoals #wlstransformation #wlssupport #wlsstrong #wlsstories #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #verticalgastricsleeve #beforeandafter #wlsuk
Since I had VSG I will say something I didn't expect was just quickly I would get full. I knew I woukd get full faster. I knew the portions would be small. I had several people in my life who have had surgery. I did a lot of research beforehand and yet I was still shocked at how quickly it happens. Sometimes after just a few bites. In retrospect I was also surprised at what foods bother me and what foods don't. Most I knew who had VSG they don't have issues with foods but I do. I cant do most fried foods and sweets (which lets face it isnt a bad thing) I also can't so some veggies. And I do suffer from reflux pretty bad and didnt expect it to be so bad. All in all its been great. Non wls related years ago I had lost a bunch of weight and one thing I didn't expect was how much it bothered me that people started to notice me. I knew people would. But I was always wondering if people talked to me now because I was just more appealing now being skinnier. I would get upset and sometimes (as an idiot) would think being big would be better because then I would know if people liked me they probably liked me for me. This time I am prepared for the change. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #gastricsleeve #verticalgastricsleeve #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlssupport #fitfam #healthy #vsgbeforeandafter #inspiration #motivation #vsginspiration #vsgmotivation #questionoftheday #questions #wieghtloss #fitness
Lunch today because my kids and I finished my chicken last night And I need to go get groceries. Currently at work so once I get home in a couple hours I’ll eat something a little better. It’s @sabra roasted pine nuts.

It's #weighinwednesday and I am down now 5.2lbs this week which means I have lost now 80 freaking pounds. I am just only 20lbs away from a 100lbs lost. Did you just hear me? I said "just" like it was nothing. Because it feels like nothing but possiblity. This tool gave me something I was searching for the past 8 years hope and possiblity. I am 94lbs from my ultimate goal and that doesn't even feel daunting. Isn't that CRaZy? It is to me.... #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #gastricsleeve #verticalgastricsleeve #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlssupport #fitfam #healthy #vsgbeforeandafter #inspiration #motivation #vsginspiration #vsgmotivation #weighin #loaingweight #weightloss #transformation
DO I REGRET IT? #verticalgastricsleevesurgery #verticalgastricsleeve #vsg I'm now almost 9 weeks post op. There's been lots of changes that I've experienced in these past 9 weeks: - reversal of diabetes - complete eradication of diabetic meds - halved blood pressure meds - 10kg down - I feel less lethargic - i feel less out of breath - i feel more motivation - i feel more in control - learnt more about myself - sleep better It's not all sunshine and lollipops though. It's been a tough ride. A journey. They do say anything worth doing is not done easy. Not so lovely i have: - lost love and apetite for foods - feel judged in public eating situations - get anxious when ordering food - developed sore back - have excess skin - (not just a little bit) - experienced trauma after surgery - experienced DKA #diabeticketoneacidosis DO I REGRET IT? FUCK NO ! 😍❤🖒💪 I'll #keeponkeepingon #sleevesurgery #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgstory #sleevestory #sleevejourney #postweightloss #wlsjourney #weightloss #healthymummy #chronichealthmanagement #healthy #weightlossjourney #wls #healthjourney #honesty #positives #negatives #changes #wlsmeme #vsgmeme #stomach #tummy
Week 11 Results: Down 1.8 lbs this week for a total of 60.2 lbs gone forever.

This has been an incredible journey and I’m so lucky that while on this journey I met this guy right here. He encourages me and motivates me to be the absolute best version of myself. Living my life to the fullest and enjoying every second of it. That includes liters of beer 🍺 which took me 3 hours to consume 😂 #njdevils #LGD #sundayfunday #latergram . . . . . . . . #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgsupport #vsglife #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #sleeveme #verticalgastricsleeve #bariatricbabe #wlcommunity #lifestylechange #weightlossjourney #sleevedlife #progress #wls #wlscommunity #wlsgoals #goals #sleeved #fattofit #progressnotperfection #nj #vsgnj
A little #transformationthursday me at 304lbs (not even my biggest) vs me at about 245. I honestly need to retire these shorts. I HAVE to tie them and even then I still have to roll them. At one point before surgery where these shorts were snug arlund my waist. SNUG! And now. I can just shake and they fall off. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #gastricsleeve #verticalgastricsleeve #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlssupport #fitfam #healthy #vsgbeforeandafter #inspiration #motivation #vsginspiration #vsgmotivation
Incline planks are a great exercise to engage each and every muscle in your core❗️... Just make sure you keep That booty down and belly button in 💪🏾...
78 days post surgery — The brain is a weird thing. I know I’ve made progress because, well for one the scale says I’m 65 pounds lighter, and for two, I can feel how much more I’m able to do when I exercise or play with my kids, but I don’t really see it. I intentionally wore this shirt today to take this comparison photo, and though I see the slight changes, my brain still urges me to be disappointed in what I see. The mental part of this journey is just as difficult as the physical. I’ve thought of myself and looked at myself a certain way for so long, I’m finding it’s not as simple as I thought it would be to change that. But, like everything else, I’m working on it.😌 — #verticalgastricsleeve #vsginstagram #wls #wlscommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #bariatric #wlssupport #weightlossjourney #endobariatric #weightlosssurgery #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy
So what inspired you to start? Mine was my health issues and gaining so much so fast and not reconizing myself anymore. My journey started with looking for answers to why I gained but wasnt successful. So that transformed into working toward doing whatever I could to getting it off and to be healthier. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #gastricsleeve #verticalgastricsleeve #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlssupport #fitfam #healthy #vsgbeforeandafter #inspiration #motivation #vsginspiration #vsgmotivation #fitness #exercise #motivation #inspiration #transformation #questionoftheday
What do you think about this brand? I’ve never seen it before.... I tried it since I didn’t have any protein drinks or food with me. I thought it tasted like a 🍫#chocolate #milkshake ! Similar to #premierprotein but I believe the #nutrients might be different. No, I didn’t compare the two but the flavor isn’t too bad. Cost? Ummm I’ll stick with a case of premier 😏 but it was good in a pinch 😎🤓 🎈 💓 🔸🔹🔸🔹 #myjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #weightloss #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalgastricsleeve #weightlossjourney #surgery #gastricsleeve #weightlossinspiration #weightlossprogress #weightlossmotivation #losingpounds #bariatriccommunity #bariatricsleeve #sleevesurgery #vsglife #vsgjourney #bariatrics #bariatricsurgery #lifeaftersleeve #transformation #wlstransformation #wlsmexico #bodyinprogress #vsginstacrew
How much sugar are you taking in? As we all know Consuming too much sugar is not good for A healthy life style. Try to decrease ur sugar intake n increase your protein and green vegetables intake while Lessing ur carbs work out at least 3 times a week. Then watch the weight fall off 👍🏽 thank me later 😉 #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossstruggle #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #weightloss #healthy #bbw #verticalgastricsleeve #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsglife #wls #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #sleeved #sleevedlife #sleevefood #vsgmom #vsgmichigan #vsgdetroit #fitnessmotivation #phatandsexy #transformation
My lunch today. It's my left overs from Chili's. I ordered a 6 oz steak, broccoli and corn. The broccoli smelled funny so I didnt keep or eat that. This is about maybe 2oz of steak an about 1/4 of an ear of corn on a tiny snack plate. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #gastricsleeve #verticalgastricsleeve #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlssupport #fitfam #healthy #vsgbeforeandafter #inspiration #motivation #vsginspiration #vsgmotivation #foodporn
Lesson learned #879 ... My boys are away and I’ve just been very,very naughty and eaten about 1/4 of a tub of Haagen-Dazs Pralines and cream ice cream. Back in the day, I would have nailed that bad boy myself and looked for a snack afterwards. Instead, I feel sick as hell and I’m pretty sure I might die alone and have a cat eat my face. Never again. #thankgodidonthaveacat #vsg #wlssurgery #sleevegastrectomy #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #vsglife #vsguk #vsggoals #wlstransformation #wlssupport #wlsstrong #wlsstories #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #verticalgastricsleeve #beforeandafter #wlsuk
What is your favorite food? Mine is a toss up between ice cream and pasta both of which I can't really have now since it tends to make me sick. I don't think I have a new favorite since surgery. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #gastricsleeve #verticalgastricsleeve #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlssupport #fitfam #healthy #vsgbeforeandafter #inspiration #motivation #vsginspiration #vsgmotivation #foodporn #favoritefood #questionoftheday

Despite the mega shedding and hair loss, I love that the weight loss has made me a tiny bit less pedestrian about my hair cuts. Any suggestions on what to do next - I have very fine hair and currently, not a lot of it! #vsg #wlssurgery #sleevegastrectomy #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #vsglife #vsguk #vsggoals #wlstransformation #wlssupport #wlsstrong #wlsstories #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #verticalgastricsleeve #beforeandafter #wlsuk
#sixflagsmagicmountain for the first time yesterday. It was cool and rained overnight so we got on ride after ride until about 2pm, when the crowd picked up a bit. My daughter met YouTuber Jojo, who was graciously taking pictures with every kid who asked. #sixflags #jojosiwa #themepark #vsg #vegaswls #vsgcommunity #vsgweightloss #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgfamily #wls #weightlosssupport #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlssupport #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlossmotivation #verticalgastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalgastricsleevesupport #100lbsdown #100lbsdown
Why 23? So random. They couldn't even say buy 23 and get 24th for free? (I was only able to eat 3) Plenty of extra room in the box. Not to make it a nice round weight, since it's 1 pound and 7 oz. #tacos #taquitos #delimex #vsg #vegaswls #vsgcommunity #vsgweightloss #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgfamily #wls #weightlosssupport #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlssupport #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlossmotivation #verticalgastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalgastricsleevesupport #100lbsdown #100lbsdown

Week 10 Results: I completely forgot to post this week. Down 3.8 lbs. for a total 58.2 lbs. it was a good week. I’ve been working out with a trainer and I think it helped a lot as I’m still struggling to get it together with my liquid intake and food choices. . . #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #gastricsleeve #gastricsurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricbypass #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricbypasssurgery #verticalsleevecommunity #verticalgastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #myjourney #myweightlossjourney #fitness #goals #goalsetting #goalweight #keepfighting #vsgresults #losersbench #winning #gym #workout #workoutmotivation
Long personal post Iv posted 2 pictures here. The first picture as embarrassing as it is for me is now (289#). The second is around 8 years ago (200#) . In the second picture even though considerably overweight I was happy in my own skin ! I felt sexy . I felt free to be who I was ! Gaining weight does something to a person . It takes things away from you and before you know it it causes you to completely lose yourself and more quickly than you realize with each point you become less and less the person you want to be . It is a scary and dark path . Sure I did it to myself ! I am the only person to blame for the weight I am now and of course I could have done things to keep myself from this but if you were like me at one point in your life then you know exactly how I feel . But it is time I take my life back and that is what this tool will help me do ! No matter what low point you are in life never feel like you are at a point that you can’t return from ! #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #wls #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #weightlosssurgery #verticalgastricsleeve
Hi! My name is Calli ! I have created this account to track my weightloss journey! Sometime in March I will be having VSG (Vertical Gastric Sleeve) surgery! It’s time to take my life back !!! . . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #wls #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #weightlosssurgery #verticalgastricsleeve
Being brave again.. Something i get told ALOT like most days is "you are to small for surgery" "you don't look as big as you say" "no way you actually weigh that much" i no these are compliments and i just explain or smile but the fact is i AM THAT weight or size. To someone else that would actually be quiet offensive, i use to let it get to me but am quiet a strong girl and realise people say it with a good heart .. i have lived this way or as the bigger girl for many many years not always but many years, i like to feel good about myself as does anyone so i do all i can to hide underneath certain clothing, i am sure we all do right?? But its all there when i un dress or see myself how no one else does. My bmi is extremely high and my body gets uncomfortable. A weightloss patient will not just get handed a go ahead to get any surgery that will change our entire life and we have to prove we can change our lifes ourself wether that be loosing a certain amount off weight or attending specific apps with professionals. It is a big journey and absolutely not the easy way out! It is a tool to aid in changing our life, and i am extremely greatful to have this opportunity but knowing very well how hard it will be. I have changed in so many ways over the past few years although the weight has not changed much YET alot off me has and i am finding myself again. Loosing weight and getting surgery can not help with the other things going on in your life! I have talked about getting this surgery for years and am so beyond proud of myself for holding of and doing tons and tons of research and fixing myself in many other ways first 💕 this is my year 👏💪🤘 #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #preoppdiet #biggirl #myyear #vsgliving #vsgsupport #vsginstagram #vsgbeauties #vsgpreopdiet #wlsaustralia #wlstories #goldenconfidence #findingmyself #youarenotalone #verticalgastricsleeve #weightlossjournal #weightlossjourney #vsginspiration #vsg #myweightloss #myweightlossjourney #findingmyway #beingbrave
