Back in May, my surgeon told me that if I remained steadfast in my weightlifting routine, I will most likely not need an arm lift. I thought he was crazy. I HATED MY ARMS. I just knew they were going to be horrible until I could afford to have them fixed with plastic surgery. He kept telling me over and over again that if I kept at it, I would end up preferring a little bit of skin over a large scar from an arm lift. I should probably go back and apologize for telling him he was wrong, because look at these babies! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 . . . . . #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsupport #bariatriccommunity #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wlj #wljourney #vsginstacrew #instafam #weightlosscommunity #gastricsleeve #letskeepkillingit #letsdothis #vsg #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleeved #vsgeats #killingit #staythepath

Started Mindful Eating class today! We're supposed to disregard the term "diet" and replace it with "healthy lifestyle". Lots of great info so far! #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #gastricbypass #rny #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #wlsstories #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #gastricbypasscommunity #aworkinprogress #abetterversionofme #preop #rnypreop #gastricbypasspreop
Day 20 - Keeping it real..... from the after surgery, I felt the hunger pains... like real hunger pains. I want one of you lucky people who doesn't feel hungry at all. I wish my stomach had taken that route. I feel like it would have made the post op experience less mentally challenging. #wlsphotochallenge #bariatrix #bariatrixfl #bariatricfam #vsg #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsginstafam #vsgfam #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlscommunity #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #sleeved #sleevedlife #bariatrics #bariatricbabes #bariatriccommunity #wlsjourney #sleevegastrectomy #goaldigger #wlsinstacrew
What’s for dinner?? I found these “noodles” at the supermarket and figured I’d try them out. They have absolutely no taste to them and will take on whatever flavor that you mix in with them. They are plant based and is sort of a free food, you could say. Added some Kielbasa and tomato sauce. It tasted way better than I expected 😉. However these “noodles” are very filling!! So I ended up just eating the kielbasa and some noodles . 😋 . . . #vsg #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgpostop #vsgfamily #bariatriccommunity #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #wls #wlsfamily #wlssurgery #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsbeforeandafter #wlsstrong #vsgeats #vsgfood #wlseats #wlsfood #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricfood #bariatricmeals #bariatric #bariatricbabes
On my first day of my bariatric fluids phase. The portions are actually good because I don't feel like much as I'm in a lot of pain unfortunately. Hopefully getting released tomorrow morning so I can rest up with my family. . . . . . #weightloss #weightlossjourney #surgery #wls #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #newchapter #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevejourney #liquiddiet #postop #postopvsg #bariatricfluids #drvictorliew #bariatric #bariatriccommunity #positivethinking #changingtoni
I dont have all the answers..but I am constantly trying to figure this journey out. Before weightloss the bigger the hair the louder the makeup.. to keep people from truly seein me ...or distract them from how big I was 😣.. and i have learned less is more !...way more 😊 #VSG #VSGlife #VSGJourney #WeightLossSurgery #WeightLoss #FatToFit #BariatricPatient #BariatricSurgery #Bariatric #GastricSleeve #wlscommunity #sleevegastrectomy #VerticalSleeveGastrectomy # #LosersBench #ADGettingFit # #VSGbabe #VSGBeauty #HealthyChoclateInProgress # #BariatricBabe # #bariatriccommunity # #vsgcommunity #donebeingfat # #healthyandwise #loveyourself #
Work snack: No cow cookie that tastes like nothing. It literally has almost no taste at all. So decided to also have some cashews since they at least taste like something! I have also discovered that cashews taste very similar to hard boiled eggs? Is that just me haha 😆 ⠀ ♥ ♥ ♥ #vsg #vsgcommunity #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthiermeals #vsgeats #vsgfood #vegetarian #vegetarianrecipes #vegetarianfood #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatriccommunity #healthyliving #fitnessmotivation #fitfam #fitfamily #fitfaminstagram
Protein waffles made from kodiak mix (with water), scoop of unflavored protein powder, sugar free chocolate chips, and one tablespoon of melted peanut butter. . . I always eat 1 section and save the rest for the next 3 days. • • • #vsginstacrew #vsg #vsginstafam #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #sleeve #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #bariatricsurgery #bariatrics #bariatricbabes #duodenalswitch #duodenalswitchsurgery #bariatriccommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossinspiration #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosssurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlssupport #myjourney #vsgeats #protienwaffles
Growing up I never took goal setting seriously. It wasn't until I was a full blown adult that I was able to master the commitment that it takes to follow a goal through. Being 1 week away from my #surgiversary I've been paying extra attention to my non scale victories. I have a much larger list than I thought I'd ever have and it's crazy to think about. . . - Wearing single digits in clothing sizes - Fitting into regular calf boots - Being able to wrap a normal sized towel around my body - Wearing size small - Running a mile non stop - Being able to do push-ups the standard way and not the "girly" way - Someone calling my "tiny" - Having a waistline - Best health in my entire life - Being able to walk into any store to try anything on . . . I could go on. The point is, don't give up no matter how discouraged you may get. I would've never imagined in my wildest dreams that I'd be able to do these things. Don't forget the little, but important milestones that you're hitting along the way. The scale isn't always going to move and it's going to fluctuate. Don't punish yourselves just because it might be taking you longer. . . #ootd #weightlosstory #weightloss #weightlosscommunity #weightlossblogger #weightlosstransformation #nsv #nonscalevictory #bariatricfam #vsgfamily #wlsfam #fitfam #wlscommunity #vsgcommunity #bariatriccommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wlstransformation

Exactly a year ago today I was on vacation in Chicago extremely self conscious because it was so hot ! Seeing the different between then and not, when I am finally comfortable working out in shorts and short sleeves. ☺️
So this happened today - SIZE 8!!! Seems surreal as I was wearing a 22 prior to surgery. {disclaimer: didn’t get them because they were to short, aka floods, but the waist fit just right 🙃}. Happy gal! . . . . #shrinking #weightlosssurgery #weightloss #weightlosssupport #bariatricsurgery #barista #sleeve #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #followmyjourney #fattofit #fat2fit #secondchances #vsgstrong #vsgsupport #vsglife #wlscommunity #newbeginnings #bariatriccommunity #fitfam #weightlossjourney #motivation #goals #verticlesleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #fitmom #fitspo #wlscommunity #workout
Can we say fuck the dentist? Nice and loud.. 😟😩 I’ve never hated or have been scared of the dentist. Never minded it at all... UNTIL TODAY.

Meet the team: the next team member we want to highlight is one of our clinic MVPs Emma Poling, RD, LDN. Emma is our bariatric dietitian, and she joined the Tulane Bariatric Center in November 2017. She is a proud New Orleans native, having attended high school at Ben Franklin. She then earned a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from LSU. Emma completed her dietetic internship at the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and is happy to be able to extend her time here at Tulane. “I feel so fortunate to be home and to have the opportunity to work with New Orleanians to help them achieve their weight loss goals,” said Emma. Her motivators are educating and counseling members of her community and guiding them towards a healthier lifestyle. • • • What have you learned from Emma??

I didn’t take a before photo of my plate, but it pretty much looked exactly the same 😂 First time out to eat since my surgery on 8/9. Turkey bacon, egg whites and wheat toast. So good!

So I know I'm not supposed to have soda, but twice this week I've gotten a Sprite Zero.

I haven’t posted in a while, and I’m sorry about that! I’ve just been focused. Focused on finding what is the right balance for my body and focused on using the new energy I have to take care of my house and kids. I started slowly losing again after a long stall which is great. In about 11 more lbs I’ll have lost a total of 100 lbs 😱 I’m so excited to see where life is taking me and where I’m taking it. I’ll try and post more for sure though. I’m still healing very well from surgery. The one thing I deal with every day is hemorrhoids. I struggled with it before surgery and it’s been 10x worse since surgery. I’m hoping they just go away once I’ve lost enough weight. The pain form them is pretty bad. But overall I’m doing great! . . . . . . . #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightlosssurgery #sleevegastrectomy #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #wlsjourney #weightloss #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #vsgsurgery #vsglife #vsgpostop #beforeandafter
Take it from someone who once was in need of inspiration. Be the change in the world that you want to see.

Yes, making healthier habits is important. Though sometimes habits can be a bit mindless...like biting your nails or snacking while watching TV. Try to live with more intention in your life and the good habits will find their way in! #WeightNoMore #UCDavisBariatrics #ThursdayThoughts
Sometimes the emotional eating derived from feeling too much, experiencing an overwhelm of emotions and avoiding all of that so much that autopilot behaviors occur. Allow yourself to release the pain, the sadness, the anger, the grief, the overwhelm, the anxiety, the confusion, and the numbness... Release is a beautiful thing. Talk it out. Dance it out. Cry it out. Just don’t let the food mask how you feel because that only hurts you more. Allow yourself to ... release. #release #overcomeobstacles #overcomeemotionaleating #bariatricsurgery #mindset #gastricsleevelife #bariatriclife #vsglife #vsgcommunity #bariatriccommunity #lifestylechange
Today's lunch & snacks are a bit shite! I will have to have lots of veg for dinner tonight to make up for this poor selection of food, my fridge is bare yet again! 🙄 Now i eat less i don't think to buy food often enough! My poor family often starve at dinner time! 😂😲😪 . . . . #bariatriccommunity #weightlosscommunity #sleevecommunity #wls #bariatricdiet #sleevesurgery #sleevegastrectomy #vsg #diet #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightlossjourney #weightloss #sleevediet #weightloss #loosingweight #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricsurgery
I highly encourage you to stop what you’re doing and Google this article. It’s not a quick read but it does confirm what all of us already know - everything we’ve ever done to lose weight doesn’t work and we’ve been told that we failed rather that being failed by the method. The message in the article provided a sense of relief and affirmed I’m not crazy. It’s exactly what I needed to hear right when I needed to hear it. #obesity #sometimesscienceiswrong . . . . . . #weightlossjourney #vsgpostop #fitnessjourney #fitfam #fitliving #motivation #weightloss #weightlosssupport #lifestylechange #100lbstolose #journeytoonderland #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgsurgery #bariatricinstacrew #vsgcommunity #bariatricbabes #sleevegastectomy #bariatriccommunity #wls #verticalsleeve #bariatricsurgery #wlsfam #wlslife #gastricbypass
