Part of post op recovery involves daily injections to avoid blood clots. The thought of injecting myself was definitely not on the lists of things I looked forward to but Iv got to admit, Iv become a badass with it! I inject daily without a grimace! Day 9 post op and feeling great 👍🏼 #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnygastricbypass #rnycommunity #rnyjourney #wlscommunity #wls #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgcommunitysupport #weightlosstransformation #weightloss
Is WLS the Chapter 1 of your bright new life 🤗🤗
Hugging is a physical acknowledgment of the presence of another with the intention of expressing affection. Sometimes hugging is meant to also express reunion after separation and in that case it represents "affection beyond words." 🌈 You would all probably agree with me that hugging is something that people do to express their emotions about others. People did it a long time ago and it won’t change in the future as well. And if you ask me, hugging is something that brings people together and makes them feel good. It also has some positive effects on people’s health. It can reduce your anxiety and make you feel like you belong to someone. 🌈 So if your like me and need a warm body for affection today....I’m sending you a hug. 🌈 ✌🏼Aisha x #wls #wlspals #wlspals2018 #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #rny #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsupport #bariatriclife #wlsjourney #gastricsleevesurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerysupport #vsgcommunity #vsg #rnygastricbypass #weightlosssurgerycommunity #gastricband #gastricsurgery #minigastricbypass #portioncontrol #portioncontrolplate #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlstransformation #thegastricguru #portionup

Here’s a weird change in taste for you. Before surgery I hated orange starbursts. They’re the only ones I wouldn’t eat. After surgery out of all the Bariatric Advantage calcium citrate flavors, orange is my favorite.

I’m about 40 lbs from my doctors goal and 13 months out from my VSG last September. I feel great but snacking is definitely a slippery slope for me. I need to get back on track and stop going back to old habits. Just because your stomach wants to be skinny doesn’t mean your mind will follow! I’m stronger now than ever. #sleeved #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #vsg #vsgpostop #weightloss #weightlossjourney #beforeandafter #sleevedseptember2017 #vsgcommunity #vsgbabes #bariatricbabes #vsginstacrew #weightlossmotivation #wls #wlsgoals #wlsinstafam #vsginstafam #sleeved #sleevedsisters #wlsinstacrew #weightlosstransformation #weightloss

I've been craving alot of unhealthy sugary treats since becoming pregnant.. I can't tell you how long I spend walking up and down the bakery section. However I never waiver and make the decision not to give into my cravings. I happened to findd a semi healthy treat for the morning, chocolate protein muffins! My plan is to eat one a day or every once in a while a serving size is 2 muffins. I tried a bite and they aren't super sweet which is nice. Swipe to see the macros and ingredients. - #vsg #vsgcommunity #rny #rnycommunity #fitness #fitnessjourney #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #health #pregnant #pregnancy #secondtrimester #pregnantafterbypass #pregnantafterwls #newmom #22weekspregnant #whatieat #breakfast

Banded deadlifts for speeeeed. Static monsters in a week and a half, feeling way more confident after playing on the equipment last weekend. Body is still really sore from the run on the weekend, but just pushing through it to keep on track. @victorianstrengthclub @static_monsters
It's funny no matter how far out I get from VSG......I still vividly remember what it felt like to live in that body. I was so proud in that before, I was about a month out from surgery and about 40 lbs down....I had NO clue what I had in store for me! Just keep swimming friends! P.s. look at that Turkey gobbler.....one day I shall learn to embrace my vagina neck 😊 #plasticsurgeryafterwls #plasticsurgery #extendedtummytuck #breastliftandaugmentation #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #celebratemysize #lovetheskinyourin #excessskin #excessskinremoval #vsginstacrew #vsglife #vsgjourney   #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #sleevegastrectomy #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #curvygirl #gastricsleevesurgery #bodypositive #extremeweightloss #pcosweightloss #pcosweightlossjourney #plussize #fatloss

Happy 1 year surgiversary to me!!!! Never did I think I’d be where I am today. I made myself a promise that no matter what I’d lose 100lbs and I did it. Most of the time I wanted to give up. I’ve cried, swore way too many times to count, and lost hope so many times. But I never gave up. Never again will I go back to my old habits. Never again will I weigh almost 300lbs. Never again will I be that girl who hated herself inside and out. I’ve lost 100lbs but gained back my self love and confidence and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Remember: never give up or lose hope. It’s possible and you can do it. 🙌🏼😘 #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #sleevegastrectomy #100lbsdown #selflove #nevergiveup #youcandoit #workhard #1year #1yeardownforevertogo #glowup #nevergoingback #ididit #hardworkpaysoff #proud #alotcanhappeninayear

Lunch before 3pm- who knew that was a thing? 😛 lunch today is one slice of protein bread with one egg, one slice of ham, a dash of skim milk, low fat cheese and chilli flakes. Totally 25g of protein/6g carbs/15g fat/276 calories. I don’t generally have a lunch this high in calories, but today I needed it. I listened to my body. Not able to finish it all- concentrated on eating the scrambled egg over the bread. Always leave carbs till last! They’re not your pal, they won’t help you. They hate you. Yep, I called it. #weightloss #weightlossjourney #VSG #loosingweight #gastricsleevesurgery #cardio #gastricsleeve #vsgonstacrew #vsgcommunity #weightlosssurgery #myjourney #willpower #exercise #workingout #healthyfood #vsgsurgery #weightlosstransformation #vsgjourney #bariatric #wlsaus #gastricsleevejourney #gastricsleevecommunity

Less talk...more action 🤷🏾‍♀️💪🏾🙏🏾 #transformationtuesday
FIRST WEEK: I’m down 1️⃣1️⃣ pounds!! WOOHOO! Y’all! This week was one of the hardest weeks of my life - physically, mentally, and emotionally! 🤕Day 2 & 3 I was scared, depressed, regretting my decision! 😔 Day 5 I finally started feeling hopeful, excited, and ready to tackle this! 💪🏼 Anyone who says weight loss surgery is the easy way out is clueless! This is HARD! It’s ⬆️ and ⬇️! It’s painful! 😩 . . . BUT that is temporary. Pain, fear, regret is all temporary! Gaining my life back and losing this weight is FOREVER!! 🌈 ✌🏼 . . . #wls #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #vsg #bariatricsurgery #sleeve #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgsurgery #vsgsuccess #vsgstory #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #healthy #rapidweightloss #livingmybestlife #newme #ashleysecaida2point0

Today is my 6 month surgaversary! It’s hard to believe that six short months ago I weighed 345 pounds was in a size 26/28 jeans and in a 4/5xl top and size 11 shoes. Then on April 16 the best decision I’ve ever had became a reality! I had vertical sleeve surgery VSG in Tijuana Mexico some call me crazy for traveling to Mexico to have it done but! I honestly wouldn’t have changed anything. A lighter me is a wonderful program. The doctors are really great and they have so much to offer! Fast forward six months later. I’m now 259 pounds in a size XL shirt and in a size 20 in pants and in a size 9 1/2 in shoes! To any of you out there considering getting VSG done do it! The things you have to overcome are very minimal to everything that you’re going to gain. If you’re anything like me and have struggled with your weight your whole life and may even have medical conditions that also make it harder to lose weight. I know where you’re coming from. I was born with Hashimoto’s and I’m hypothyroid and more... so it made losing weight I struggled. I’m not saying I was perfect honestly I ate like shit most the time but with this surgery it gave me a different outlook and it gave me The jumpstart I needed! it’s not the easy way out! it’s hard your brain is a powerful tool and even though your stomach is small you still have a fat brain and have bad habits to break. I’m still working on that but I’m also learning to trust the process and to work on me and not worry about everyone else! I’ve tried to please people my whole life and now I’m finally working on myself. I struggle with things daily and I’m having to look at a lot of things differently like when you step on the scale and the number is not moving on the scale but you’re working out keep going don’t stop! You’re gaining muscle or maybe you should take your measurements. Brain hunger in not real hunger. They are two completely opposite things you must Listen carefully. Unless you are on a weight-loss journey you have probably stumbled across my page. Most people in my life do not know about my surgery & journey. But if you are on my page & you support me thank you! I can’t wait to see where I’ll be in six more!
Rebecca and John shared their experience about gastric sleeve in Thailand!
Almost 3 months post op and today I weighed in with 50 pounds lost! I haven't had any tendonitis in my feet, my skin is getting clearer and I just feel better overall. Can't wait to see where I am in 3 more months! #50poundsdown #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #vsglife #weightlosssurgery #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #vsginstacrew
Officially 50#’s down since the start of my journey!! 1 month post op. ❤️ #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter
Before you decide on weight loss surgery, take the time to do your research. Know The Who’s....the board certified Bariatric surgeons in your area. The What’s....what exactly is Bariatric Surgery and the different options you have. The Why’s....why have you chosen this step. How will it help you. #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgquestions #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgbeforeandduring #vsgjourney #bariatricsurgery #bariatricinformation #bariatricsurgerysupport #bariatricsurgeon #bariatricsleeve
#transformationtuesday #scaleedition It’s officially been three weeks since I decided to get back on track and focus on eating better. I’m happy to say in three weeks I’ve lost 9.6lbs and only have 6.8 to go to get back to my goal! My birthday is in 10 days! I would love to be back in the 150s by then! And as you all know my goal is to be back to 155 by 12/01 which will mark 3 years of hitting my original goal weight of 169! For everyone that thinks weight loss surgery is an easy fix you would be wrong. I know several people that either never reached their goal, are slowly gaining weight back, or have gained all their weight back, if not more. It is just a tool that we are provided. How you utilize that tool determines your success. Maintaining is probably the hardest part of this journey. I saw myself going down a slippery slope and falling back into bad habits, and I made a promise to myself that I will never go back. Let alone ever get over 200lbs again. What you guys don’t know I was up to almost 178lbs at my highest in re-gain. I’m now 17 pounds down from that. I am feeling better and more confident. We all have choices in life. What we choose will lead us down our path. Positive or negative. Positive eating choices for positive results. Even though the numbers are going negative on the scale in a positive way ;). Height: 5’9” Highest Weight: 371 lbs 6/30/14 Surgery Weight: 281 lbs 1/26/2015 Original Goal: 169 lbs 12/01/2015 Lowest weight: 149.6 lbs 12/01/2016 (to skinny) Regain High: 177.6 lbs 09/01/2018 Current weight: 161.8 Goal weight: 155 #weightloss #fitness #gym #majorweightloss #health #healthy #nevergoback #maintenance #goals #healthyeating #keto #fatloss #istilleatallthetime #choices #positivevibes #enlightenment #futurelifechanger #futurebusinessowner #futurepersonaltrainer #vsg #vsginstafam #vsgcommunity #wls #wlscommunity

When you’re feeling down about your progress (and lack of effort) lately there’s nothing like a good #transformationtuesday pic to make a girl feel better! I had just started losing weight in the pic on the left (was down 9lbs), and then here on the right was from last week. My weight has been fluctuating between 197-203 for about a month now. It’s completely bc I’m not being consistent at all. I have been beating myself up about it! But the good news is I have made considerable progress and have every intention of continuing on this journey. Life has just been hard to find a good balance lately. But I am committed to figuring it out! Ok thanks for listening to my rambling lol ______________________________________________________ #kellitransforming #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandduring #wlsbeforeandafter #wlstransformation #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgtransformation #fattofit #95lbsdown #wlslife #transformation #watchmeshrink #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlsfam #wlsstrong #vsgstrong #vsglife #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgfam #vsgfamily #progress #bariatricsurgery #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy
