Today’s #vsgeats were epic: 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. #vsgeats #vsgcommunity #wls #wlssupport #fooddiary #wlscommunity #adelaidewlsbabes
Mr Sleeves main reason for making such a life changing decision is thus girgeous boy in his arms. Being healthy enough to be around to watch the grandson grow up and be a healthy example for him, #love #lifechanging #vsg #weightlosssurgeryjourney #wlscommunity #vsgcommunity #vsg #wls #sleevedlife #sleever
Today I had my last appointment before surgery!! . I went to see an exercise physiologist who wrote up an exercise plan for post surgery, we set up an app where he picks out a daily routine for me with video tutorials and ability to message him and ask anything at anytime - so efficient! . A lot of the work to have a healthier life has barely begun! I'm so excited for the process to finally begin! . I'm glad to be done with having so many appointments. For awhile there I was juggling being low in energy, shitty sleep, moving house and jumping between so many doctors and specialists, it was exhausting! So exciting for everything to start getting better! 🏋🏼‍♀️⛹🏼‍♀️🏊🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🧗🏼‍♀️ . . . . . #gastricsleeve #wls #wlscommunity #diabetes #diabetestype2 #tinylittlestomach #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatric #optifastdiet #optifast800 #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsgcommunity #bariatricsurgerysupport
Post Op Day 7 was my first day back at work/ “working from home”. I went in to my office for nearly 6 hours (whoops) and worked another 3 once I got home. I am on very minimal pain killers and feel pretty decent. At work I did minimal moving around and stayed in a comfortable seated position and tried to “take it easy” as much as possible. I felt pretty swollen tonight but over all still decent. My drainage is minimal as well, and so fingers crossed they will agree at my post op appt tomorrow! • • • #sleevegastrectomy  #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsginstacrew #vsgsupport #weightloss #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #sleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleeve #gastric #bariatricsurgery #bariatric #plasticsurgery #tummytuck #lipo #musclerepair #breastlift #implants
It’s been a while since I posted a #transformationtuesday shot .. in fact it’s been a while since I’ve posted a comparison in general. 52kgs loss, 2 years post sleeve , 1 year post plastics. It’s time for me to get back into training.. it’s been so hard not being able to get back into things but soon enough I’ll be given the green light 🥳 Hope you all enjoy your week xx - - - - - - - - - - #vsg #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosscommunity #sleever #sleeve #transformation #transformationnation #transform #bodytransformation #gym #training #toning #muscle #insta #like #likeforlike #webstagram #instagood #instagram #instadaily #follow #followforfollow #transformationtuesday #plasticsafterwls #wlsplastics #comparison #beforeandafter #redhair #instagymfit
Living a life where you’re happier and kinder towards yourself is not just about what you can do. But also about what you are already doing. And especially those habits that do have a negative and unhappy impact on your life. https://www.streamline-surgical.com/patient-success-stories/ start loving your life today #wls #weightloss #vsg #gastricbypass #rny #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsupport #bariatriclife #wlsjourney #gastricsleevesurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerysupport #vsgcommunity #vsg #rnygastricbypass #weightlosssurgerycommunity #gastricband
My number one snack!! #snackattack
Looks like something you've seen in a drunk sorority girl's hair, but tastes pretty fucking legit. . Taco Cauliflower Rice Bowl Makes: 10-5.2oz servings . Ingredients: 1lb extra lean ground beef 1 packet taco seasoning 3/4c water (for the taco seasoning) 1 bag of frozen cauli rice 1 can of black beans drained 1 can of corn drained 1 can of rotel NOT drained . I also added dried minced onion flakes, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. I don't count for spices because eating tablespoons of black pepper didn't make anyone fat. 🤷 . Directions: Brown beef with above spices then mix your water and the taco seasoning packet in. Transform your beef into spice magic. Then let that shit simmah down now (If you don't know what simmer down now is then Google it youngin') Throw in your beans, corn and rotel (Don't be scared carb haters. The rice is cauliflower... 🙄) While that's cooking nuke your cauli rice in the best invention ever... The microwave. When that shit dings then add it to the pot with your other stuff and you're done. . If you want to add more shit on top that's on you and your macros. Fuck it up. . Pretty straight forward. SWIPE for macros . #wls #vsg #rny #weightlosssurgery #gastricsleeve #vsgcommunity #vsgeats #weightloss #losingweight #caloriecounting #countingcalories #myfitnesspal #extremeweightloss #bariatriccommunity #bariatricbabes #vsgsurgery #rnysurgery #lapband #weightwatchers #weightlosstransformation #vsgjourney #vsglife #rnyjourney #rnylife #vsgfood #wlseats #recipes #cauliflowerrice #dinner #easyrecipes
This ones from last week- size Small!! Cannot believe it still! Size 20 to a 10/so! I said to Neil I see a reflection and was like wtf is that actually me? Do I look like that? Some days you really can’t see the new you- other days it’s like extremely exciting to be somewhere you haven’t been b4, or In forever! Head games. Wtf? But this day is the day I tried on swimmers!!! Felt amazing. #changes #change #newlife #lifechange #8020rule #portioncontrol #lowcarb #highprotein #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #wlscommunity #secondchance #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #sleever #sleevedlife #wlscommunity #vsginstacrew #wlsinstacrew #newbody #gettingthere #gettinghealthy #gettingfit

2.7lbs off this week. To be honest I was expecting a stall this week but the scales moved at the last minute. I'm having to watch my portion sizes and meal timing now as I can eat more. 🏅💪 . . . . . #wls #vsg #gastricsleeve #extremeweightloss #weightlossjourney #PCOS #weightloss #transformation #diet #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #weightlosstransformation #workout #motivation #gastriclifestyle #fitspo #bariatricbabes
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.
BARIATRIC FRIENDS I NEED YOUR HELP. I received my binder today!!! FINALLY! All my labs are done. I have class on January 25 and the bariatric nurse said it would be best for me to start the pre op diet now but I’m really freakin out about getting to my pre surgery goal weight. I have to loose 34lbs. If you have any suggestions or words of wisdom- funny anecdotes- anything at this point. HELP ME!😂 How’d you get to your pre op weight? . . . . . #rny #bariatric #wls #edsurvivor #gastricbypass #rnygastricbypasssurgery #wlscommunity #rnycommunity #wlsjourney #vsgcommunity #wlsfam #vsgfam #rnyfam #transformation #weightlossprogress #weightlosssurgery #wlsupport #bariatricsurgery #foodaddiction #rouxeny
Happy Monday! Didn’t let working a shift and a half stop me from making my 5:00 appointment with Josh! Had a really great night, working on some static max poses and deadlifts. Ended the night with a little bit of stretching, and then a brisk walk back to work 😬 Hopefully not too many people noticed that I just put my sweater back on over my workout gear and didn’t switch back into my pants and boots 😆 No gym tomorrow because we’re going to the Deck the Hall Ball concert, but I’ll be back at it on Wednesday! . . . #gymaccountability #gymselfie #workout #exercise #fitness #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatriccommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsglife
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. 💫
Its #transformationtuesday so i thought i would update my progress as its been a while. Weightloss these days is consistent but slow. 56.5kgs down and absolutely loving my new lease on life. Im a work in progress and still aim to lose another 25kgs. These before and after pics are wearing the same dress but by no means am i the same person anymore. Both on the outside and the inside. Im learning to put myself and what i need as a priority, thats its ok to take time out for myself and do some self care, thats its ok to speak up for what i want and deserve. For too long i was insecure and accepted the role of being the submissive doormat and people pleaser because i didnt think i deserved any better. So not only has the weight loss surgery saved me from an early grave and the possibility of weight loss related illnesses in the future, but it has also changed my life in giving me back confidence and the permission to value myself and my needs. I will forever be grateful to the online weightloss community that inspired me to believe i could do this and continues to inspire me daily. The friends i have made along the way in the #wlscommunity will be lifelong friends and i love each and every one of you xx #workinprogress #eyesontheprize #haventlostsightofthegoal #selfcare #selfworth #dontbeadoormat #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #wls #gastricsleeve #bariatricbabes #aussiewls #aussiesleevers #aussieweightloss #weightlossjourney #adelaidewlsbabes #adelaidewls #bariatric #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #beforeandafter #progressshots

#day9 of #decwlsphotochallenge was In Your Cup, so here’s how I start my morning. Stump town Cold brew coffee mixed with Premier Protien in my purple Starbucks cup, and a full 40oz of water in my HydroFlask water bottle. . . . #whatsinyourcup #inyourcup #photoadaychallenge #photoaday #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatriccommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsglife
Catching up on #day8 of #decwlsphotochallenge which was Something Red. I’ve had this robe since freshman year of college, and it just made me laugh how big it is now. . . . #somethingred #photoadaychallenge #photoaday #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatriccommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsglife
This is 2+ years ago and I had recently lost 30 lbs and was feeling myself. I would go to the gym every day and I only ate food that I cooked and drink 80 oz of water a day. I was doing so good. I sent this pic to a guy to be funny and he said I was “fat” and THIS is what kills my confidence. Even though I’m most likely going to get smaller than this pic now with the help of my sleeve, I’m still going to think I’m too “fat” and I can already tell you dating is hard for me bc of this. Gotta keep telling myself YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH AMANDA FUCK THEM ASSHOLES 💜💜 • • • #vsg #vsgfamily #vsgsurgery #preopvsg #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #wls #wlslife #wlsjourney #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #wlscomminityvsg #gastricsleeve #gastricsurgery #gethealthy #weightlossjourney #vsginstafam #fitfam #verticalsleeve #losingweight #fitjourney #vsgpostop #vsgeats
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
Weight Gain after VSG is SO REAL! 😒 Nursing school coupled with everything else going on has gotten me gaining weight. I will be skinny again!! #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgweightgain #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsfamily #wlssupport #vsgsisters #vsgfamily #vsglife
My after workout snack. I eat it straight out the pack. This 2.5oz of tuna had 14g of protein! #phattchiqqshrinking #vsgcrew #vsgcommunity #blackgirlsleeved #blackgirlsleevedkansascity #phattgirltrains #cardio #weights #sleevedeats
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. #phattchiqqshrinking #vsgcrew #vsgcommunity #blackgirlsleeved #blackgirlsleevedkansascity #phattgirltrains #cardio #weights #sleevedeats
@justlikedrew If someone would’ve told me that this could and would happen to me... I never would’ve believed them. When I started this journey I never knew I would actually make it to this point. I didn’t know what life would be like on this side of my weight loss journey. I can’t believe I am 2.3 pounds away from my goal! It’s so wild honestly... I’m so thankful. I don’t even know what to say... thank you all for continually loving me and believing in me. I love you guys!

From May 2018 to December 2018. 9 days away from my 30th (shh don’t tell anyone). I feel on top of the world. I bought this dress to go out for my birthday, and last month I was really nervous it wasn’t going to fit. But trying it on, and I’m in awe! Totally going to rock the hell out of this body con mini dress 😍. . . . . . #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricbabe #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #dirtythirty #30thbirthday #goodbyetwenties #bodycondress #confidence
One day you’re up, the next you’re down. #bodydysmorphia in #weightlosssurgery patients is real and difficult to deal with. Last week I felt on top of the world. But my weight hasn’t changed all week, and it has me feeling huge and unsuccessful. Same body, completely different emotions. . . . . . . . . #vsgfamily #vsgcommunity #vsgfriends #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgfollowers #wls #wlsbeforeandafter #sleevesurgery #vsg #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #weightlossinspo #girlswithpiercings #girlswithtattoos #bariatricbabes #bariatriclifestyle #wlspals2018 #extremeweightloss #sleeved #sleevedlife #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #weightlosstransformation #gastricsleeve #weightlossbeforeandafter #thinspo #instainspo
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. #whattheheck #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgweightloss #wls #vsg
Are these any good? I have been craving @dietcoke so incredibly bad. I miss the bubbles something fierce. So I’m an attempt to make a swap I can actually partake in I bought these. But now I’m nervous to try them I feel like they’ll be gross #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlsfood #wlseats #wlsdrinks #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgfood #vsgeats #vsgdrinks
Bahaha....actually get this, it's the first day I've noticed a difference in my clothes. I put on a pair of pants that used to be tight tight and I had extra waist fabric!!! It was actually so annoying I had to roll it 👌 I'm not taking pictures yet to compare, I want to wait until then two month mark. How often do you take bonafide comparison photos? #john330 #bariatricsurgery #vsgcommunity #sleevedfoodies #sleevecommunity #savedbygracesleevedbymercy #vsg #vsgjourney #sleevegastrectomy #wls #lessofmemoreofhim # #christianweightloss #jeremiah2911 #sleevesurgery #weightlosssurgery #itsnottheeasywayout #prayer #grow #nsv #nonscalevictory
Jokes on y'all! I'm actually an old lady. I go to bed at 8:30 with curlers in my hair and lots of face cream. I am basically swaddled in sweats a flannel plus a huge robe and slippers. My nose is always weirdly red and I'm planning on wearing what can only be described as a ladies Christmas leisure suit to work tomorrow. (If it fits........) I know, I know you can only handle so much of my sexual magnetism ! #wlsstory #wlsbabe #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wls #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgeats #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgbabe #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsglife #wlslife #verticalsleevegastrectomy #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #wlssupport #fitness #bariatricsupport #sleeve #sleeved #bariatricfitness
