Getting back to that calorie counting life..and having my breakfast date with one of my besties @kristi.anne.91 and her son ❤️ Egg white omelette with spinach, turkey and a little cheddar. One piece of dry whole grain toast. 400 calories. #caloriecounting #goals #weightloss #firstwatchcafe #eggwhiteomelette #wholegrain #caloriecounting #breakfastwiththebestie #breakfast #turkey #spinach #omelette #160lbsdown #restart #pushyourself #healthierlife #meal #diettribe #effort

5-mile fasted run for active recovery - not because I have to - but because I want to. It isn’t because I want to be skinny - it’s because it makes me feel alive. It makes me feel good. It’s because I live to love it. ❤️❤️ When you have a lot of weight to lose, this is how you lose it and keep it lost. You learn to love it. Sorry, I don’t have any lotions, potions, expensive powders, or wraps to sell you. And when you say things like, “I can have that, I just don’t want it. “ then you’ve arrived. When you stop trying to replace unhealthy things with things loaded with artificial sweeteners and honey - then you’ve arrived! You are ready! Be an athlete and allow yourself to love it. Love the way it makes you feel. Then it’s easy. If you really want it - eat like an athlete, train like an athlete, and think like an athlete. It will stay gone. #winning
The weather here has given me that sun kissed skin. Lighten my hair and the air has made my lungs feel 💯% better. Next step it to tighten and tone up my body. #lovingthenewme #beautyofthebeholder #nofilter #160lbsdown
Starting to see some real back progress! I am so proud of this pic! Not only have I lost the weight but I’m doing it slow and controlled so I’m not all loose skin! This is what hard work, dedication, and motivation look like! #dowork #slowandsteady #marathon #nota #sprint #progress #weightlossjourney #icandoallthings #iworkout #fora #healthier #lifestyle #mind #body #soul #gym #gymlife #fitness #fitnessmotivation #focus #inspire #succeed #challenge #yourself #youvsyou #160lbsdown #stillgoingstrong #positivevibes #only #neverbackdown

Fried rice is awesome because 1) it's a great way to use up cold leftover rice, meats, and almost anything else in the fridge and 2) it's easy to make it work for you by adjusting ingredients and amounts to fit your dietary needs. Also making your own hot chili oil is great because you avoid the preservatives and dyes in store-bought hot oils and you can pick the type of oil used. I made mine using avocado oil this time because I find that the chili works well with the more neutral flavor of the oil and I want the benefits of avocado oil. But the hot oil isn't enough spice to make me not need Sriracha 🤷🏻‍♀️ • • • #foodstagram #Georgetowneats #friedrice #hotoil #chilioil #homemadechilioil #sriracha #howIlostweight #160lbsdown #bokkeumbap #중국음식 #볶음밥 #먹스타그램 #프드스타그램

I will forget on Tuesday, so here’s an early transformation post. 160lbs down. I am now a comfortable size M/10. I have my skin removal consult scheduled in October. Hopefully I’ll have my surgery sometime early 2019. It’s been a long road, but I’ve finally found myself, and I kinda like who I’ve become ❤️ . .. ... #keto #lchf #ketolife #ketomom #ketolifestyle #lowcarbhighfat #ilostaperson #justkeepgoing #lovingmyself #redhair #iambeautiful #fromfattofit #transformationtuesday #ketogenicdiet #ketogenic #tummytuckhereicome #skinremovalsurgery #160lbsdown
Eating healthy and moving around more has made the biggest #transformationtuesday difference because I am practicing self care. It's not just about the weight loss, although I do like feeling slimmer and fitting into clothes easier, it's about how I feel inside and how my physical and mental health is. It doesn't mean I don't still struggle- I do. My problems haven't all magically drifted away, but by making important changes in my life, I have a more positive attitude which goes a long way. #naturalweightloss #progressnotperfection #extremeweightloss #weightlossjourney #beforeandduring #losingweightfeelinggreat #150poundslost #150lbslost #150poundsdown #obesetobeast #100poundslostandcounting #100poundweightloss #100poundsdown #100poundslost #plussizeweightloss #160poundsdown #160lbsdown #160poundslost #160lbslost
Somehow I fit in a size large Juniors dress. It's snug in the bust area, but it zips and feels pretty comfortable overall. I'm generally a 1x in women's for reference. Also, the dress on the left was a tight size 34 in women's. #transformationtuesday #naturalweightloss #progressnotperfection #extremeweightloss #weightlossjourney #beforeandduring #losingweightfeelinggreat #150poundslost #150lbslost #150poundsdown #obesetobeast #100poundslostandcounting #100poundweightloss #100poundsdown #100poundslost #plussizeweightloss #160poundsdown #160lbsdown #160poundslost #160lbslost
Looking at these two pictures next to each other just blows my mind. November 2016; in New York meeting my future mother in law for the first time. The other; was this weekend my bridal shower. If you would’ve told that girl on the left this would be her life - she wouldn’t have believed you. 160lbs difference between the two. Haha. 🤯💕 Happy Transformation Tuesday everyone (: --- • • • #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgeats #wls #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #vsg #weightlosscommunity #bariatriclife #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsglife #onederland #goals #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitfam #bodsqaud #oneyearpostop #sidebyside #beforeandafter #fof #tft #weightlosstransformation #transformationtuesday #160lbsdown

Yasssss 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 I’ve officially lost a large adult off my body 😳😳 I’ve been honest about things slowing down and how frustrating it’s felt. I needed this. Sometimes a little reassurance puts the pep back in your step ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . #myweightlossjourney #progress #wlspostop #wlsfam #wls #wlsfamily #rny #rnyjourney #wlssupport #postop #wlscommunity #rnycommunity #bariatricsurgery #weightlosstransformation #justkeepswimming #transformation #bariatricbabes #rnyinstacrew #teamlosing #rnypostop #weighin #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #160lbsdown #weightlossprogress
To most this means absolutely nothing but a pic of weights but to me this means much more.. If you add the total pounds up this is how much I have lost over my journey. I thought how in the hell did i ever carry all of this weight around on my body and still push myself, to play ball, run and lift. I was so unhealthy and unhappy.. But with support, motivation, encouragement and accountability I have hit goals and exceeded them. ------------ No you dont have to do crazy insane workouts to get results. I just enjoy them. I found what I like to do.. I found a passion and a fire within that I didnt know I had.. Who knew this once 315lb person would be so fitness/health driven. #160lbsdown #weightloss #hardwork #goals #fitwifey #girlswholift #gymtime #workoutathome #mytime #hitgoals #determined #perfectlyimperfect #doiteverydamnday #yourcompetitionisinthemirror #youcandoit
Scale went up this week - not much.. But we all notice every pound, it’s part of our struggle. —Just reminding me how important consistency is. Going to be getting back with my meal prepping and tracking - but even when I’m beating myself up about my food choices over the past week, I have to remind myself of how far I’ve come.. so. #faceofffriday --- • • • #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgeats #wls #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #vsg #weightlosscommunity #bariatriclife #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsglife #onederland #goals #fitness #fitnessgoals #oneyearpostop #fof #sidebyside #beforeandafter #160lbsdown #regain #tracking #beforeandafterweightloss #mealprep
I still can't believe that I am that person in the picture on the left. I used to look in the mirror and think to myself that I wasn't that big.. but now looking back I realize how unhealthy I was. Now, I look at pictures of myself and think "Woah that's me?" Weight loss is quite a mind game and it can take a big toll on your mental health. This is one of the hardest things I've ever accomplished, if not the very hardest and I am not done yet! #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #gastricbypass #rny #160lbsdown #moretocome #workinprogress #wasthatreallyme ?
Did work yesterday! Was so sweaty and gross, but so proud, first day back after being off for a bit is always the hardest to get motivated! Back at it again today, holding steady at 164 lbs down (surprisingly my vacation bloat came off super quick from Sunday to today with allllllllll the water)! #extremeweightloss #ifyouchangeyourmindyoucanchangeyourlife #adventuresofasleepygirl #weightloss #weightlossjourney #healthier #happier #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #workworkworkseñora #fitish #foodie #goaldigger #goalsgoalsgoals #iworkout #100lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #164lbsdown #coloradolivin #coloradosprings #coloradoliving #transforming #transformation #transformationtuesday
Great start to summer holidays and a big #nsv for me! The last time I remember being on a #trampoline was when I was about 11 or 12 years old!!

Got a little ahead of myself yesterday 😂🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ it’s been a long week. So here’s a double dose #facetofacefriday for y’all - notice that upward angle camera shot in the first pic to make my face appear slimmer 🙈🤣 #face2face #face2facefriday #goalsgoalsgoals #extremeweightloss #goaldigger #bettereveryday #feelingmyself #happier #healthier #doitforthegram #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #losingweight #164lbsdown #ilostawholeperson #iworkout #newnew #adventuresofasleepygirl #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #tbt
The best part of this race 🏃🏽‍♀️was seeing my family, my boys, cheering me on as I crossed that finish line. Tears of pure joy came rolling down. 😭 . . 8 years ago, I couldn't even walk up a flight of stairs without gasping for air, and here I was. Crossing the finish line at a race that only 1% of runners even attempt 😱 . . It occurred to me right then, I became the person I always wanted to be. I made my dreams come true, with the support of my family and closest friends. 🙌🏽 . . If my long, sappy, drawn out post annoys you, that's ok (I used to feel the same) but just in case you're scrolling through, feeling miserable and hopeless, thinking that change seems impossible, heres a picture of hope. For at one point or another, I felt the same way. . . It is possible to be whatever and whomever you want to be and it's never too late. One foot forward, is still progress. Keep going, and keep pushing. ✌🏼✨ . . #160lbsdown #weightloss #weightlossjourney #beforeandafter #transformation #plantbased #vegan #veganweightloss #leadville #colorado #weightlifting #runner #potd #runnersworld #runnersofinstagram #trailrunning #marathontraining #me #veganfood #veganbodybuilding #fitspo #health #inspiration #fitness #motivation #fitfam #healthylifestyle #vegansofig #transformationtuesday #plantbaseddiet
I can’t believe it’s been a year. #oneyearsurgiversary - if you’re not familiar with my story; here’s a little summary. At 345lbs I was diagnosed for the first time in my life as hypo thyroid. After being put on medication to bring my thyroid back to life - I started the Options program at Kaiser. During my 3 month WLS health class, I really started making big changes in my life. I got a trainer, started using the healthy plate method and tracking my foods. I lost about 80lbs before my surgery. After surgery, I’ve continued to work on my healthy eating and train hard. Honestly, for the first time in my life - I like working out. And I work hard at it. Losing 160lbs was something I truly thought was impossible. I thought I would be heavy forever but now I’m here. From a size 26 to a 10/12, 4x/5x to a M and I am still in awe. Don’t get me wrong it’s challenging. I fight with the fat kid in my mind often.. she wants all the junk and sweets, almost always (so far- I haven’t gotten the dumping syndrome). I’m determined to never go back. I made it to Onederland and I never intend to go back to 200lbs again. For those of you struggling out there or trying to decide if the sleeve is the option for you. I have no regrets - it’s been an amazing tool. I’ve met so of the most amazing people in this community. The #wlscommunity on #instagram has been so supportive and encouraging. So cheers to another year.. and to a healthier and stronger me. --- • • • #vsgcommunity #160lbsdown #weightlossjourney #vsgeats #wls #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #vsg #weightlosscommunity #bariatriclife #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsglife #onederland #goals #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitfam #surgiversary #bodsqaud #oneyearpostop
A bit late but joining in on #facetofacefriday !! Summer 2016 (a couple months before I started keto) to today. 160 lbs difference. I have a jaw line and who knew my chin was actually kinda pointy!? Also, #thatnecktho ... and way less makeup but #thatshitsexpensive lol!! . . #keto #ketodiet #ketoweightloss #ketomama #facebyketo #160lbsdown #nofilter
Sitting in old Theater seats never gets old now. I remember coming to this place (it plays movies that left normal theaters before going to dvd and it's 2.50 instead of the normal 9$ We usually bring the kids) ANYWAYS! I remember wanting to take the boys to see Captain America Civil War....and after paying for all 5 of us...we left after 20 min because at over 300lbs the arms were digging into the side of my legs. I tried siting on the edge....but I just couldn't do it. Now there is so much space. I literally can twist and turn and slouch however I want to sit to be comfortable. ...I can. #halfofme #160lbsdown #sittinginchairs #enjoyinglife #bariatricsurgery  #bariatriccommunity #weightlosscommunity #transformation #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnyjourney . #rnyfamily . #gastricbypass #gastricbypasssurgery . #gastricbypassjourney . #gastricbypasscommunity #weightlosssurgeryjourney #weightlosssurgerycommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #nsv #rouxeny #rouxenyjourney #losingweight #gettingfit #fitlife #shrinking #findingme
Man looking at some of these pictures has me all up in my feels. There’s this trail that runs behind our house that we walked a lot last summer and we’ve been using it more the last few weeks now that the weather has been consistently nice and I just kind of can’t believe the difference a year makes how a struggle can become something that’s not even a challenge. My life has changed so much. I NEVER thought I could do this or be here. Just thankful for so much this glorious Sunday ❤️ #transformation #transforming #lifechange #weightloss #fitish #fitness #goalsgoalsgoals #noquit #healthyfoodie #extremeweightloss #goaldigger #iworkout #soicaneat #ifyouchangeyourmindyouchangeyourlife #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #100lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #164lbsdown #coloradolivin #coloradosprings #coloradoliving #summerinthesprings
Passing beautiful sunrises and fields full of horses. It was a peaceful ride. A little slower and sore-r than expected but glad I got up and moving. Hitting 100mi tomorrow since I’ve just missed it 2 wks in a row. Have a great Saturday.
Sporting that Discovery Channel Chinese-knock-off on my ride today. I’m officially cut off from buying bibs and jerseys per my beautiful wife! 😂🤣
So it’s Transformation Tuesday - and; My one year follow up appointment is tomorrow - (my #surgiversary isn’t until #june23 ) I’m interested to see what my Dr has to say - even with a little regain these past few weeks I’m still about #160lbsdown - and that is about 5lbs from my original goal weight, of 180lbs. And that’s not too shabby in a year. I’ve worked really hard; not just to loose weight but to change my lifestyle. (I’m not in a rush.. but) I feel when I get the excess skin removed because of the way I’m built I’ll probably loose another 5-10lbs. But we’ll see. That being said - pretty soon here I’m going to be switching into maintenance mode. Not working out less. 4 days a week is a great balance for me - but working on strengthening and upping my caloric intake in a nutritious way. 🖤 --- • • • #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgeats #wls #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #vsg #weightlosscommunity #bariatriclife #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsglife #onederland #goals #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitfam #bodsqaud #transformationtuesday #tft #sidebyside #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss
New day, new kit! Missed my 100mi mark again due to not feeling to great after a “heavy” dinner but still 97.5 is SO close. Ready for it this week. What are you looking forward to this week?
Never would have taken a full body pic at my highest weight. Now, I just don’t care. I’m down 160 pounds and losing more every week. Be proud of your own skin. #160lbsdown #thickgirl #platformsandals #ginger
Let’s talk about that #transformationtuesday - 164 lbs lost and it feels incredible, but don’t let Instagram gloss over the day in day out work this takes. I still struggle with disordered eating and it requires my mindfulness. In the last week I’ve indulged a few too many times whether having fun with friends or letting a little stress get the better of me and while I’m continuing to maintain I really would like to lose another 5, no one is gonna accomplish that by not being diligent. So here’s my diligence reminder for today, one day didn’t get me there and it certainly didn’t get me here. Here’s to today, to getting all the protein and water, working out and purging the kitchen of too many treats! You can all do this if I can. I promise you! #noquit #goalsgoalsgoals #healthyfoodie #extremeweightloss #goaldigger #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #transforming #transformation #lifestyle #inittowinit #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #164lbsdown
Great morning ride with the world rushing past at 18mph. Other cyclists, I’ve been using a phone mount and Strava (which I love) but it’s a little bulky to keep at the head. What cycling computer do you use or recommend?
Made the leap! Felt good about last week and this morning’s ride so I registered for my first triathlon. Turtleman Triathlon Super Sprint at the end of the month. Can’t wait!
The great thing about goals is they do not go away because you did not hit them. It’s only if you give up on them do you truly fail. I set a goal for 100mi in a week this week. Well I did not hit it. BUT I rode 7days this week, 88.2 miles, 25mi in a single ride, increased my speed and have finally set a cadence I can keep without coasting. All on World Bicycle Day! Doesn’t matter if you get up before 10 or after dark. Just get up!
It was conditioning Saturday. No heavy weights. Weights are lighter and test periods are significantly shorter - 10-15 sec max. Cardio is often involves, usually tread/row AMRAPs (as many rounds as possible), sandbag walks/runs, step mill stuff or elliptical HIITs. Today I wanted to share a “leg day” finisher (or even more brutal, day after leg day finisher). It consists of 3 body weight exercises. Set your timer for 15-minutes, this is an AMRAP. 1. 25 air squats 2. 30-seconds pop squat 3. 25 wall squats Repeat - no rest. By the time I got to the third round of this, I wasn’t sure I even had legs. It burns! If you want a better legs and booty, this is part of the answer!
As of today, I officially weigh less then what my ID says. Just barely.. But still! My 16 1/2 year old self totally lied when filling out the paper work for the drivers permit (didn’t we all? Lol) I definitely weighed more than 184 at the time— and honestly the photo, height and weight has not changed on my ID since then (yes, I’m definitely due for an update; it still says I’m 5’6.. lol. but CA DMV *sigh* is the worst) at the time of my permit I was either 190-200. Somewhere in there. So cheers to a literal #scalevictory --- • • • #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgeats #wls #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #vsg #weightlosscommunity #bariatriclife #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsglife #onederland #goals #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitfam #bodsqaud #160lbsdown #weighinfriday

Up before the sun for 10 miles. Goal this week is 100+. How are you planning to hustle this week?
Haaaaaaappyyyyy mondaaaaaay!!! Happy Monday for me because I finally hit 160 lbs down!! Only took about 5 months from when I hit 150 lbs down. 😱 . . . #keto #ketoweightloss #ketodiet #ketomama #ontrack #160lbsdown #stillgoing #happymonday #newlow #lowestweight
Sweaty selfie with my best friend😍 I did 3 miles in only an hour😱 I remember going to the city park at 400 pounds and struggled to do just 1 mile in an hour, now here I am, a few years later and 160 pounds down I am going 3 miles in only an hour with no struggles or complications! I even felt like I could keep going but didn’t want to overdue it since I’ll be doing a lot of walking at Lake Erie tomorrow☺️ I know most people HATE treadmills and trust me I can understand why lol but I’m a very imaginative person so I always go into my own little world and get lost in my music. This treadmill is the best gift my mom had ever gotten me, it has become my therapy, it’s gonna be the one tool that’s gonna help me succeed🖤
