B: Banana protein shake (not pictured), eggs & bacon
L: Prawn salad, with dressings on the side (I’m weird like that. Also, no onion because ew)
L: Fruchoc slice (vegan, gluten free, no refined sugar. Super hipster. Was quite nice, considering)
D: Salmon, asparagus & mushroom
Not pictured: Babybel cheese, sugar-free icy pole, latte, a few macadamias & fruit balls
I’m off to yoga now and might have a yogurt later if I feel like it.

While I can't wait to get back to meal prepping, I'm also kind of enjoying making fresh meals. Oven baked salmon and tomato salad 🤤.
Hello everyone! With me just starting this account I wanted to put a little about myself to share what started me on this journey. My aunt had surgery about 6 years ago. Even then I knew I one day would want to have it done as well. At the time I was young and not ready to give up on food. We both have PCOS which is a struggle I still deal with. After surgery she became pregnant and I knew this would change my life so I one day could have my own child naturally. Fast forward to my trip to New York to get my best friend her wedding dress. After days of struggling to keep up for I am the heaviest I have ever been I knew something had to change. These pictures show me how far I have let this get. My thyroid disease is also I have. I’m ready for this, I’m ready to get health, and I’m ready to enjoy life and not carry so much weight. This is for me. If you would like to follow my journey and lead a helping hand along the way I would be thankful.
Time for a #transformationtuesday
✨ It’s time to set some new goals to work towards as I’ve reached my first goal weight! I never thought I’d get under 100kgs, (I started at 131kgs), but now I’m sitting at 85kgs and I couldn’t be happier. Life has become so much more fun now that my weight isn’t stopping me from enjoying myself and my time with my children. Being able to go on rides with Violet or chase after my niece Maisie (and soon Zara), has made me happier than I ever thought it could. Truly thankful for my sleeve and thankful for this second chance to truly live. If you’re on the fence about having wls, reach out! I’m here to talk. 💫
Have you tried this??
Dude. Go to the store RIGHT now and get it! I grabbed these from @sprouts
Sooooo good, and 20 grams of protein! We're cooking this tomorrow for dinner so check out my IG stories for how we cook it.
The last few months of 2018 has opened up my eyes big time, but it has opened it in a way that its preparing me for 2019.
I had to lose myself, people and crumble, to be able to seek the help I needed to become healthier and better.
I truly am looking forward to the coming new year, it's filled with hope and definitely new adventures.
Hope everyone had a great day, have a goodnight and sweet dreams. 😪💤😴🤸♀️🙏🦁🙆♀️💜😊
Had several ladies ask about this dress. I got it last year at Charlotte Russe. I wore it last year to our company Xmas party as a top. I see a huge difference now. #transformationtuesday
This post is awful. I’m not even sure how I allowed myself to get that big. I will not show you the photo of my actual face either. It is a MESS and not a good one. I never thought I was heavy until I looked at photos of myself! I never wanted people to post photos of me, unless I approved them. This photo was taken at my Moms Birthday party 2 years ago. I’m not sure I was even at my heaviest at that point, but what I do know is I’m glad I’m not that girl anymore! I still have 52 more pounds to go before goal, but I am officially 45.5 pounds down today!! ❤️❤️ #transformation #beforeandafterweightloss #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney
Day 2 of 4
I didn't wanna go today. It was my first day back to work so I had to tolerate people ALL day, come home and cook for the family, straighten up a bit, do a little #phinukappasororityinc
work... I JUST DIDNT WANNA GO TO THE GYM!
I looked at some of the #nonscalevictories
I want to achieve. I talked myself into putting on my gym clothes. I sat on the bed and swung my feet... and convinced myself to go to the car. I yawned the entire way to the gym. I sat in the parking lot debating if I was going in. Thats when I reminded myself... "You are always committed to something. You have to choose the thing." Tonight I committed to 4 days on/2 days off.
Some folks really think this #vsglife
is an easy out. I just wish they could walk a day in my shoes.

My dad bought me an ugly Christmas sweater for our little family tree decorating gathering last night & he thought it was a medium but it was a small...and it still fit. A Christmas miracle or an #NSV
When I stepped on the scale this morning I was expecting a loss similar to what I have been averaging for the past month or so, which has been about 2 pounds. I was thinking, "Cool, at this rate I might be in the 210's by Christmas and 200's before February." Then my body was like, "LOL NOPE" and I lost 5.4 pounds in the last nine days?! I am now officially in the 210's!! In the past ten days I have performed in 4 full concerts and 2 quartets, had a migraine for 2 days, dealt with hypothermia from one of the quartets, had my 3 month post-op appointment, and worked as many days as my body would let me. I have done my best to meet all my protein goals and there have been a good amount of days where I haven't even got close to my water goals. Besides the migraine I have felt great. I'm tired because I'm doing a ton of things, not because my body can't handle it. And if anything this situation shows me how incredible my sleeve is. It has helped me achieve so much in just three months and I can't even imagine where it is going to take me from here.
