. 🏋🏼‍♀️ Strength training done! 🏋🏼‍♀️ 37 mins, 275 calories . 🤗 Workout complete! 🤗 My stomach was kind of sore still, probably because of the needle from the fill. I decided to only do 2/3 of my normal strength training routine because I didn’t want to push myself too much, so I skipped my normal ab exercises. . Tomorrow I plan of stepping my kettlebell weight from 5lbs to a 10lb kettlebell & from a 4lb medicine to a 6lb one. . 😊 Tomorrow is another day to better yourself 😊 . #infertilityjourney #pcos #lapband #lapbandlife #lapbandpostop #lapbandsurgery #lapbandjourney #weightloss #weightlossjourney #gastricband #gastricbandlife #gastricbandlife #gastricbandsurgery #gastricbanding #gastricbandpostop #gettinghealthy #onedayatatime #myjourney #tryingtoloseweight #journeytohealthy #betteringmyself #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #newlifeday76 #strengthtraining #strengthtrainingworkout #workoutcomplete

It’s all getting very real now, I’m still excited but am getting more nervous! 🙊 #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wlsjourney #wlscommunity
A few days into my liquid diet I realized that I wasn’t supposed to drink this! So glad I didn’t go crazy and buy 8-packs of it because it was so good! Now it’s Powerade zero for the win! • • • #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgeats #vsgpreop #wlsjourney #preop #premierprotein #proteinshake #verticalsleeve
Okay folks lets talk vitamins. Well I’ll be honest I was sleeved 09.21.16 almost two years ago and I have not swallowed a vitamin in over a year(well at least not in pill form😎). So to my surprise my lab work came back damn near awesome. With the exception of this lack of vitamin D. As you all can see my numbers are extremely low which explains this terrible back pain, constant bitch mode and lack of sleep. So my pcp wrote a prescription for 50,0000 units of Vitamin D to take one pill a week. Now this has me questioning what I’m eating is this a good or bad thing that I’m getting all my proper nutrients except one from my food sources. 🤔🧐 ****Swipe~Left**** - - - - - - - - - - - #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevesurgery #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatric #sleevesurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlssupport #vitamin #vitamins #vitamind #vitaminddeficiency #fuckbeingfat
Basic Bariatric Bitch-not my favorite flavor tho. Currently Cookies and Cream is my favorite. I’m going to miss these post-op! #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgeats #vsgpreop #wlsjourney #preop #premierprotein #proteinshake #verticalsleeve

The Corpse Flower blooms for 24-48 hours once every 7-20 years. That’s right. For a majority of it’s life it’s closed up tight and doesn’t look like a flower at all. A gentle reminder in life that something’s really only do happen in life once in a blue moon. You have to be willing to grasp these opportunities when life presents them or you may never get another opportunity. Tonight, I saw this flower while it was in bloom in person. What will you do when life presents you with an opportunity? Will you take it, or will you stand idly bye and let life pass you bye? #CarpeDiem Seize The Day!
It’s crazy putting these pics side my side!!! The first was m at my heaviest in the spring start of summer and the right is me today!!! It’s crazy how -30lbs can change you!! I’m praising God for all he is doing in my life and this process!! #vsgjourney #vsg #wlsjourney 😆🙏🏻🙌🏻😍
Anyone noticed that they added 50% discount tickets for entrance to #SixFlagsOverGeorgia for all #ColorRunAtlanta participants? Who's going into the park? Unfortunately, I don't do coasters or falls... If anything I'd do the wave pool and rafts. Plus, I think I'll be too tired to do anything.

Throwback Thursday. Surgery edition. 4 months ago I had my #VSG surgery. Thinking back and knowing it’s been four months, blows my mind. I’ve learned so much about myself on this journey. Since day of surgery I have lost 56 pounds, and a total of 96 pounds altogether. I feel very lucky and blessed to have this opportunity at a better life. This road has been bumpy AF. But I promise you I’ve had way more happy tears than sad ones. .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #weightlossjourney #weightlossjournal #vsgbabe #vsginstacrew #vsg #vsgeats #weightlossmotivation #gastricsleeve #bariatric #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsupport #vsgfam #vsgprogress #bariatricsurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #lowcarb #fuckingbelieveinyourself
Whatchu know about me? 😜Straight up hoodie gangster ✌🏻(I need to go home from work lmao)
A friend took this photo of me and I almost didn’t post it just because all I can see are the imprecations. So let’s talk about them. I weighed 303 lbs and maintained just under that for years on a 5’4 frame. I carried a lot of my weight in my upper body and so that’s where the majority of my loss of skin elasticity is occurring. I had fat neck rolls before and now I have lose neck lines. I’m pretty sure I have a turkey neck 🤷🏻‍♀️. As a result, I don’t like pictures that scream turkey neck at me! A huge part of the reason I chose to go on this journey is so I wouldn’t let my weight hold me back from living my life to the fullest. But now I’m scared of pictures that I feel illustrate my problematic skin areas? I have to accept that I will ALWAYS live in the body of a formerly obese person. The best way to get comfortable with these imperfections are to expose them. Once they are in the light there is no need to try to hide them any longer. Or in layman’s terms, I need to stop giving a fuck about what people MAY think. #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #weightlossinspiration #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #fitnesstransformation #health #healthylifestyle #insecurities #selfimprovement #selfimage #selfesteem
Simple dinner tonight. Turkey meatballs 14 grams of protein and 140 calories! Side of sweet potatoes. Definitely will be making this again! OH meatballs have sugar free honey BBQ sauce on them! #dinner #healthy
Work outfit update! Right picture was 5/12/18 (5 days before surgery) and the left picture is today 8/16/17. Pounds are still dropping slowing but the inches are falling off pretty fast. Today I had someone say they didn’t recognize me because I’ve lost so much weight. Every day is still challenge but I fight through it to see these changes. ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #vsgbeforeandafter #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlsjourney #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgweightloss #vsginstagram #vsgtransformation #healthierme
These are sooo much tastier than the store brand I usually buy! I even tried to hide them in the freezer (putting the store brand box in front) but my boys found them and finished them off. 😂 It’s sad how just 5-6 weeks ago I was eating everything in sight for a month long food funeral and now three sugar free popsicles satisfy my sweet tooth. #newlife #newme #healthyme #healthyeats #healthychoices #accountability #vulnerability #progressnotperfection #authenticity #chooseyourself #dsjourney #duodenalswitch #duodenalswitchsurgery #duodenalswitchjourney #wlsjourney #wlssupport #dssurgery #vsgcommunity #vsginstafam #vsgsupport #weightlosstransformation #bariatricsurgery #weightlossjourney #weightloss #beforeandafter #lowcarb #healthyliving #vsg #wls #vsgsupport
💸 Officially all paid up 💸 🙏🏼 Hopefully my tax return will make an appearance next week and help my poor bank account out. That aside, I am trying to look at this as an investment in myself, my happiness and my health 🌱 . . . . . . . . #wls #wlsaustralia #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgsurgery #vsgfamily #vsglife #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #gastricsleeve
Awesome #NSV today. I haven’t worn this shirt since the summer of 2011, right before my weight started to creep up 🤦🏼‍♀️ I saved this shirt because 1. I spent a lot of $$ on it and 2. I hoped I’d fit back into it again. I put this puppy on today and it fit me. My poor husband @njvsgguy had to deal with my crazy happy dance this morning 😂 #workselfie #mirrorselfie #bcbgmaxazria #workclothes #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #vsg #thickthighssavelives #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #wlsfamily #njvsg #gastricsleeve #verticalsleever #vsgbabe #bariatricsurgery #weightloss #sheddingpounds #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #beproudofhowfaryouvecome

This past week I have been through so many emotions 😂...At first I was in so much pain from my hiatal hernia repair I regretted my surgery. Then once I was finally able to keep stuff down and started to feel more like myself I was so happy with my decision! I have to say this has been the most challenging week of my life thus far but I am so excited for what is to come! #ilovemysleeve 😍 #vsgpostop #vsgnewbie #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgfamily #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlsproblems #improudofme ❤️ #patienceiskey 🔑
I haven’t been convinced that i was going to see changes when I was getting ready to take pictures. But changes are there! I see them! So happy with my progress and even happier I’ve been encouraged to take pictures along the way 🙌🏻 Left: 7/5/18, Right: 8/16/18 . #lsfgreat8 #LSFtogetherforever #lovesweatfitness #lsfsummershapeup #teamlsf #lsfrollcall @lovesweatfitness @teamlsf #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlosssurgery #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity

For years I didn’t look after myself, either due to putting the needs of my children well before my own, and depression. Deciding to go through with WLS is such a huge step towards putting myself first. You cannot pour from an empty cup! Looking forward to fuelling my body with only the best foods from here on out! ❤️🍓 . . . . #bariatricsurgery #vsg #wlsbabe #bariatricbabes #vsgaustralia #wlscommunity #wls #wlsjourney #wlseats #wlssupport #wlsstrong #vsgjourney #vsgaustralia #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew

All pre-op visits are done ✅ All lab work is done ✅ Nurse education is done ✅ Insurance approval is in ✅ So whyyyyyy don’t I have my date?! It’s so hard not to get impatient and frustrated. I’ve called my advocate so many times to schedule and now I’m just waiting.... waiting... I’m a planner I like to know things! I hate having no closure on this yet 😝 #anxious #eager #wls #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #buffytvsg #areyoureadytobestrong
You guys. I was so excited about this bowl. I don’t like it at all😩😩😩 It smelled so good when I put it together but it doesn’t taste very good.

Tried a new tofu recipe and it's AMAZING! Baked nooch tofu. 😍😍😍 Its super easy and with a little drizzle of peanut Thai sauce it's so good.

I was given a second chance to live an amazing life! Even on my worst days I view my life as a gift! I will live the best life I can everyday. I promise to love myself and love this perfectly imperfect body! I stepped out of a 340# hell! And I refuse to live another day hating my body! I promise this body I will show my love for it with exercise and healthier eating than I did in the past! I will continue to work on the mental part of this journey! ❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️ #selflove #selfawareness #selfdiscovery #workout #workoutmotivation #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #weightlifting #buildingmuscle #fitness #fitmom #fitgrandma #fitnessover50 #vsg #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #beforeandafter #tbt #plussize #bodypositive #healthylifestyle #lostover140lbs #lowcarblifestyle #mevsme #grateful
When it falls apart 🖤 last night we had pork roast cooked in the oven with beef bouillon, onion powder, garlic, olive oil, pepper, and light butter. It was so flavorful. I made a 9 pound roast so my family could just eat on it this week lol. I also paired it with chunks of roasted red potatoes 🐖🥔 #roast #porkroast #dinner #protein #fat #notketo #lowcarb #wlsjourney #vsg #littlemeals
Cheers to my last taste of food! Although, this is just processed shit 🤣 tomorrow morning I start my clear liquid diet for 3 days! I am actually very excited about it. I'm just sick of eating tbh 🤷🏽‍♀️ I'll be posting a decent amount over the weekend to keep my mind off my hangry attitude lolol 😎 #snickers #wls #wlsjourney #rny #liquiddiet

Are you a corporate professional woman that had bariatric surgery? . This was me just a few years ago. I remember navigating my way through corporate and trying to balance being a new post-op patient. . Everything was going just as planned. Good and steady. . Then the stresses of work and life built up and I resorted back to my old ways. And this time I had a new bad habit... Alcohol. . Going out for an evening cap after work became a daily norm. . And as far as I was concerned, for good reason! A long day = a deserving drink. . Unfortunately that 'I had a long day' drink turned into daily drinking. . Every emotion was an excuse to drink or eat. . And that started my downward spiral. . There I was, 3 years post-op, 50 lbs regained, borderline alcoholic, hating what I was seeing in the mirror, dodging hanging out with friends and family, dodging work events and lunches... and having to get up for work each day like everything was 'fine' taxed me... Hard! . I thought having weight loss surgery was was the answer to everything! But I soon learned it was more to being a bariatric success. . It was more than just eating less and exercising. . This was an emotional and mental battle I had to fight. . And guess what??? . I'm winning that battle day by day! . Now here I am, 6+ years post-op and - I've lost all 50 pounds of regain - I'll be 3 years sober this December - I love what I see when I look in the mirror - I no longer shy away from pictures - I walk into every room with confidence of a queen - I am at peace with the path I'm on - I've learned what works for me and how to reach and sustain the vision I've always had for my health, my body, and my lifestyle. . It's easy to fall off track. The key is learning to get back up quicker. . Life happens. Always has, always will. So when those hard days, weeks or months happen, you have to know what it takes for you to get back on track. . Discover how you deal with your emotions, get clear on your behaviors, identify whether improvement is needed, and make the necessary changes. . Success is 80% mental (and emotional) and 20% physical. . Work on the 80% and the 20% will follow. . #thebariatricfight #finishwhatyoustarted
🌯 Chicken Burritos I guess we'll call these!? They were SO yummy! Low carb/low fat! . . . 3 chicken breast, 6 Joseph's tortillas (9 net carbs-6g protein), half a can of rotel, 3oz cream cheese, reduced fat mozzarella cheese, Texas Pete to taste ... Mix chicken, cream cheese, rotel, and Texas Pete together ... fill tortillas, add mozzarella cheese, spray pan with olive oil. Cook at 400 degrees for 30 min. Add mozzarella to the top and broiled for 5 min at the end. YUM! We are with a little reduced fat sour cream!
