I have spent the last two days by the pool. Sometimes......that’s exactly what you need. ☀️ + 🍓 + 💦 + 🍹 Getting some color in these legs of mine. They are real blinding, but we are going to fix that this summer! Shorts, swimsuits, sundresses! I’m pulling out my old wardrobe....im officially the same weight I was when I got married!! Down 55 pounds!! #summertime #sunshine #poolside #fruitinfusedwater #hydration #withalittlelimeabsolute #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
. 💛💛LETS GET MOTIVATED💛💛 Y’all...let’s get real. My Apple Watch has been amazing for me before and now after surgery! I’ve learned that what I thought was a good use of my exercise time...is not. I learned that I am not as active as I thought. I’ve learned that I really dont get my heart rate elevated to the level it needs to be for a good work out. So! I want you to have the chance to learn, too! Here are the rules: 1. MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR IG HANDLE IN THE NOTES OF THE PAYMENT. I will not track you down if you fail to do this. 2. $2 per entry, no limit. {Link is in my bio} 3. Once I get 200 entries, this will be closed and I will draw a winner using a random generator and it will be recorded/live 4. Please send payments as “friends/family” payments less than $2 (or not a multiple of 2) will not be counted and will be considered a donation 😘 5. Open to the US only (shipping is ridiculous otherwise!) 6. You must follow me and I recommend turning on post notifications to make sure you don’t miss the drawing! Tag your friends! Repost! Share! If I receive an abundance of entries quickly, I will draw more than one winner! There is no profit in this for me, this device has been my favorite thing since surgery and I recommend it completely! #amandasapplewatchgiveaway #applewatch #giveaway #vsg #vsggiveaway #weightloss #weightlossgiveaway #favoritethings #motivation #goals #my168dayadventure #raffle #applewatchraffle
From start(10.11.17) to my last office visit (6 weeks post op) this is how much my insurance has been billed. 🤯🤯🤯 Every office visit, PCP checks, psych evals, EGD....that’s a lot of freakin cash. I am so thankful for my insurance!! So far, I have only had to pay $2,830 and I think everything to this point has been submitted and processed. I am going to go talk to the billing department at the hospital to make sure I get a clear print out of all of the bills. They bill individually for everything. It’s soooo confusing. #thankgoodnessforinsurance #bluecrossblueshield #adulting #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
A little relaxation in my hammock chair. Technically a scale victory, I was actually under the “recommended weight limit” for my chair and stand. Before surgery, I was over by quite a bit. 💪 #itsthelittlethings #weightloss #hammock #relaxation #myhappyplace #vsg #postop #nsv #freshspringair #changes #vsglife
I think #thelittleenginethatcould was on to something.... #ithinkicanithinkican I think I can be successful with my tool. I think I can be successful at working out. I think I can get through tomorrow. I think I can drink this whole bottle of water. When you think you can, you get a whole hell of a lot further than telling yourself you can’t. Next time you want to say you can’t do something, or something is too hard...argue with yourself. “I can’t run a mile” “oh, but what if you can? I dare you, try it” see if your attitude changes. #positivemind #youcandoanything #ibelieveinyou #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
Eight week update! 💕 Besides my two bouts of terrible reflux, I’m happy with my results! {things I am killing:} ➕clothes fit better ➕8.5 inches lost around midsection ➕energy is amazing ➕all foods are sitting well; some better than others. ➕hitting most food/fluids goals every day {thing to work on/downside:} ➖intentionally working out ➖starting to notice some “squishy skin”😂 ➖slowing down with eating ➖paying attention to my body when it’s trying to tell me to chill ➖comparing my success to others; we are all different. #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
I am usually not a complainer, but this fucking blows. I wanted to get my garden taken care of, my house cleaned up, and run some errands...nothing sucks more than having motivation to get things done and not feeling like you can move without throwing up or spitting up acid. 😡 this is the second time since surgery, so I should be grateful. I will be tomorrow, but today I’m crabby. #vsgproblems #vsg #postopproblems #theyarefewandfar #buttheysuck #reflux #thestruggleisreal
Gatsby’s dance recital last night 💗
#thestruggleisreal pre-op. My toes licked the serious love they deserved unless my girl at #nailtrustmerlehay worked her magic 2-3 times a year. They may not look pretty, but they look better than they did! #itsthelittlethings #nsv #nonscalevictory #postop #vsg #vsglife #vsgproblems #sandalseason #cuteAFstrappysandals #pedicure #jkjustnewpolish #loveyourself #pampering
In my ever changing sizes I’m in fashion limbo right now. The clothes I currently wear are getting too big, but my skinny clothes are still a little too snug. I needed a few staples to get me by until I drop about 15 more pounds to get into more of my smaller sizes! 2 shirts (target and torrid) + brand new pair of black flats (yes, my feet shrink too!) + new purse (because duh) = $7 In all truth: I tried on 4 new pairs of pants......wasn’t ready for that mentally yet. 👎 #problemarea #fornow #newclothes #salvationarmy #salvationarmyfinds #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
I can't begin to express in words what this day means to me. It is my absolute least favorite day of any year. Has been for the past ten years. 10. Years. I don't have much to say this year. It's been a rough month already and then this....10 years. Always was, always will be, my favorite person in the entire world gone too soon. I am angry for the time with you that was cut short, but I am the most grateful for the memories I have. I love you. So much. Every day. 5.18.08🌹
“I am proud of myself.” No one really says that anymore. I am proud of my choice. Proud of my accomplishments. Proud of my will power. It’s refreshing to say it out loud. I am happy that I finally made a decision to change my life. I am proud that I have worked hard. I am proud that I have that I have found the positive side of surgery. Yes, there are negative sides to this surgery. Had a bad day....want a large glass of wine.....I’ll have some ice water instead. No. It is not as satisfying. But the heartburn just isn’t worth it. I’ll go for a walk instead. Really craving @krunkwich but know that it’d go bad before you’d be able to finish it even though it is all you can think about for weeks? Doctor up some broth to kind of sort of taste like their deliciousness and go mow the grass or something productive. You have to figure out your triggers and then get the fuck over yourself and understand that you have control of your new life now. Be proud of yourself. Celebrate small accomplishments. Learn from mistakes. Change. Evolve. Accept. Your life is completely different now, it’s time you start acting like it. #truthbomb #honest #nodaybuttoday #iamproud #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
