WHEWWWWW CHILE, THE VSG! 😱 | I call it Motivation Monday because the picture on the left motivates me to never ever ever ever go back to the way I was. Evolving and transforming each and everyday! A few things that motivate me on this journey are: 😩 Squeezing into clothes then busting out of the same clothes 😩 Running out of breath just putting on my shoes. I love boots and zipping up boots with thick calves can be a stressful 😫 😩 Eating enough for 5 people in one serving 😩 Thinking about food all day everyday 😩 Having a double/triple chin 😩 Being the “thick friend” 😩 Running from family photos WHEW! The list goes on! What motivates your weight loss journey? Let’s chat ☕️

Today I did 30 minutes of the treadmill at a speed of 3.0 and an incline of 7.0 with some light dynamic stretching. For me, getting back to the gym after surgery has been a bit frustrating. Despite my weight I have always been fairly active and had a pretty nice work out schedule and routine going. Having a few weeks off has been enough to lose a lot motivation that I’m working to get back. I also still can’t lift anything over 10 lbs for a few more weeks so I’m only doing cardio. Its freezing out and indoor cardio is super boring so doing only that is making me a little cranky 😅 What I can say is with the first 50+ pounds gone I can already do so much more than I could at the start! So even though it’s boring now, I can’t wait to be able to start mixing things up and really see what I can do as the weight comes off! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 . . . #vsg #bariatricsurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #healthylifestyle #weightlosssurgery #weightloss #healthyliving #obesetobeast #fattofit #fatgirlfedup
Forgot to post my Sunday Weigh-In yesterday: 257.8 So close to the big 100 loss! It’ll be really nice to close out the year with that 🤞🏼Now time to put in some work on the ol’ treadmill to make sure it happens. . . . . . . . . #weighin #postvsg #vsgpostop #wls #vsg #sleeve #vsgcommunity #weightloss #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgjourney #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #wlsjourney #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsglife #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #vsgsurgery #bariatric #wlsfamily #bariatricsleeve #verticalsleeve
Guys it’s less than a week away and I’m freaking out! I’m nervous and excited! Any tips on what to bring for the hospital stay? My surgery is out of state so I don’t want to forget anything! 😬 #vsgjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #weightlossjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #preop #preopvsg
So I kept it simple but just some shrimp and avocado mixed with whatever seasonings I could find in my house cause I’m adventurous like that 😝😂 #preopdiet #bariatricsurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #bariatricsleeve #sleevesurgery #sleevegastrectomy #shrimp #avocado #alltheseasonings #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsfood #wlssupport #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsupport #bariatricfoodie

THIS FEELS LIKE A LIFETIME AGO ... ✖ I woke up this morning to this photo that my sister sent me - I have no words! There was a time I couldn't actually sit in cafe chairs & if I did fit I would be terrified the whole time it would break under my weight. I'm so glad I never have to have that feeling again 💔 ... so many emotions get bought up looking at old photos! ___________________________________________________ #extremeweightloss #fitfam #sidebyside #wlspostop #progress #vsgprogress #vsg #vsgisonlyatool #vsgcommunity #vsgpostop #vsgperth #vsgaustralia #vsgfamily #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlssupport #wlsaccount #weightlossjourney #weightlossgoals #weightlossdiary #weightlossaccount #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #wlsinstafamily
Spaghetti with zoodles. First time trying zoodles. Not to bad.

I came back from the gym the other day and I’m not sure why, but I was compelled to take this photo. Looking at it now, it hit me how far I’ve really come in the past 2 1/2 months. Before surgery you wouldn’t find me anywhere near a gym because I was so scared that I was working out “wrong”. I still may not know exactly what I’m doing lol, but I know for sure that I’m going to keep trying until I reach my goal. *also ignore the boxes, I’m in the process of moving🙃 #motivationmonday #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #sleevelife #sleeved #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney
Baby it’s cold outside ... and I made chili! The recipe is in my link in my bio. I did add a can of beans this time to add some carbs. #vsgjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsg problems #vsgreset #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlsjourney #wlssurgery #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlscommunityvsg #wlsstrong #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #vsglifestyle #weightlosssurgery #chili
🍕🍔STRESS EATING🍫🍰 •Who can relate?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ it’s so hard to control your eating habits when times get super stressful! 🤩New blog post is up with tips and tricks on how to survive the tough times 🤘🏼 . #qotd : what food do you turn to when you are stressed? Mine is in the comments! 👇👇 #tagafriend for them to share the food they crave . 🖤LINK IN BIO🖤
Look at that perfect salad 😋
I’ve been majorly MIA but have been thinking about this awesome, community a lot lately. UPDATE: I’m 4 years post-op, now. I gained 10lbs last year and another 15lbs this year. My body changed ALOT after VSG but my emotional triggers? Not so much. Not at all. I still can’t fit much food in my little sleeve but chocolates, and pringles fit a little too well in there. My jaw line is fuller now, my collar bones are not as boney and my jeans fit uncomfortably. I’m also disappointed in myself. I’m working on steering things towards the right direction but it’s going slowly. I’m posting this today for everyone out there who is also facing re-gain too. You’re not alone and the struggle is real. ❤️ #vsg #vsgpostop #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsginstacrew #vsgbeforeandafter #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlsfamily #wlscrew #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #rnygastricbypasssurgery #lapbandsurgery #weightlosssurgery #regainafterwls #wlsregain
Thank you thank you thank you! For all the sweet messages and support. Y’all are amazing. I will get back with everyone as soon as I feel a bit better, really get my IV out. It’s hard to text with one hand. I feel great! Been up and walking a bunch, sipping lots of water, been very alert, and not in much pain but I am on pain meds. So blessed everything went smoothly so far. Surgery took about 40 minutes. I did not have a hernia and they did not need to biopsy my liver. I should go home in the morning! Thank you for all the love!! I’ll get back to your comments and messages hopefully at some point tomorrow!! 💕💕💕 - - - - - - - #sleeve #vsg #wls #vsgeats #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlosssupport #weightlosstransformation #keto #weightloss #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery ##beforeandafterweightloss #facetofacefriday #transformationtuesday #motivationmonday #beforeafter #transformation #beforeandduring #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #vsgcommunitysupport #bariatricsurgery #gastricbypass #diet #blog #weightlossblogger #transformationtuesday #motivationmonday
Brinner! My back is broken (my lower back is sore as shit, and making movement miserable) and I got held up at work - so no time to make bacon 🥓, but still got my 3 egg whites scrambled in butter, Colby jack cheese with mayo & EBtB seasoning 😍 #WhatNatalieEats #⬆️Protein⬆️Fat⬇️Carb #wls #vsg #bariatricsurgery #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy
Oh. My. Gosh. I was running low on time today so I decided that rather than go to the gym, I would bust out the home gym and do a little #21dayfix #lowerfix I haven’t worked out with @autumncalabrese in ages and holy hell I need to get back to it. Her workouts are quick but killer. I feel like I worked harder in that 30 minutes than an hour on the elliptical. #gym #gymtime #homegym #workout #workoutroutine #workit #workitgirl #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossgoals #weightlosssurgery #wls #wlsjourney #wlspreop #wlscommunity #wlssupport #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevejourney #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevesupport #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsgpreop
Picked up a can of unflavored protein powder today. There is an extra 20 grams of protein in that little can of soup. #sipsipsip #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsglife #wls
The protein struggle is real! Here is dinner 1/2 Atkins shake+ 4oz 1% milk= something I can tolerate . . #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #verticalsleeve #vericalsleevetransformation #wlscommunity #weightlosssurgery #baratricbabes #baratricsurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightlossjourney
Size matters😉(stole my husbands cup I got him for Xmas). In this was 24 ounces of chicken bone broth, no salt, and sriracha for spice 🤤🤤. Ugh this is GOLD, and it’s so easy to get down that I had to make sure not to drink it too fast 😊. Right now I’m sitting on 51 oz of liquids🎉👏. I only need 13 more to reach my daily goal of 64 🙌🙌🙌 and it’s not even 5pm yet 😉. Typically, I have been drinking until I wake up all the way until I go to bed just to make sure I get my required amounts. I’m so proud of myself ☺️
Today I had my 1 month post-op appointment with my surgeon 👨🏻‍⚕️! He expected me to loose between 20-30 pounds for the first month and I lost 27 so I’m definitely on the right track. He also gave me the ok to start doing some exercises and to start swimming 🏊🏻‍♀️. Mostly excited about the swimming part because it’s one of my favorite activity to do and it’s a super complete sport that exercise all your body parts (and no sweating 🤦🏻‍♀️)! Otherwise my water income has gone up since I was finally able to find some #protein2o in my city.😁 Tomorrow I’m having my first meeting with a nutritionist specialized in bariatric surgery, ready to learn some new stuff ! 💯 . . #vsg #sleeve #vsginsta #verticalsleeve #sleeved #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgsupport #bypass #gastricbypass #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsglife #healthy #lifestyle #postop #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightloss #weightlosscommunity #weightlossjourney #bodypositive #nutrition #swim #weightlosstransformation #weight
Motivation Monday!! Who is this?? Late post.. this is me from Saturday. Wore this size XS Pinup Girl Clothing dress to a winter formal event.

Keep your goals where you can see them. Write them down. You get discouraged? Remind yourself what you want and why it’s worth the struggle/self-control/wait. I got nineteen months of little victories planned out and I am only getting closer to them each day! . . . . . . . . . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #weightlossjourneywithme #newme #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #freshstart #watchmebloom #vsgfam #vsgcommunity #vsgusa #northwestweightlosssurgery #northwestweightandwellness #pnwvsg #bariatricgirl #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgpreop #merrychristmastome #dayone #preopdiet #livershrinkingdiet #protein #extremeweightloss #obesetobeast #eyesontheprize #proteinwater #healthchoice #lowcarbhighprotein

Something really exciting happened today...I comfortably fit into an XL T-shirt. 😁😁 Also, I easily fit into my student desks now, whereas I used to not fit AT ALL. 🙅🏻‍♀️The scale didn’t move this week, but this is just as equally exciting as seeing a loss on the scale. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 ________________________________________________ #motivationmonday #vsglife #vsgeats #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #vsgsurgery #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #wlhsfood #wlseats #wlsstrong #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #sleeved #ilovemysleeve #weightlosssupport #bariatricfood #beforeandafter
A letter to my pre-op self has been posted to my site, timetodeflate.com! . I wanted to have a genuine, "what I would want myself to hear" from almost 4 years ago about the pre-op process for bariatric surgery, and how good life can get. Check it out 😊 . (I am starting a series based off this - keep an eye out for another letter to myself, 1 day post op through 2 months!) . . . #vsg #wls #weightlosssurgery #bariatric #rny #rouxeny #bariatricbabe #wlscommunity #mnwls #weightlossjourney #preopwls #preopvsg #preoprny #preopdiet #verticalsleevegastrectomy #lettertomyself #motivation #bariatricsurgery #whyihadwls #parknicollet #healthpartners #obesity #obesitysurvivor #obesityhelp

Let’s talk spouses’ work Christmas parties 🎉 and anxiety! Who is looking forward to redeeming themselves this year?? Who’s looking forward to it next year?? Who has social anxiety like me🙋🏼‍♀️😥🙋🏼‍♀️?? I most definitely thought at this weight (142.8) it would make “husband work Christmas parties” a lot easier!! If you followed my stories last week- you know that was NOT the case! 😭Losing 123 lbs makes a lot of things easier. Social events in unknown places, with lots of unknown people: that’s a no for me and my anxiety. Growing up- I thought everyone felt that way. Nope. I know it’s very hard to relate if you’ve never experienced it. And I APOLOGIZE 🙏🏼 for victimizing everyone with it in my stories!! 😂 Especially my husband, @utah_mama_vsg & @a.little.less.lauren_vsg !! Especially, especially Lauren 😂 (go to her for makeup/outfit coordination😉😅)!! And thank you EVERYONE who voted on my outfits and/or DM’d me these last 6 weeks with dresses!! 🙏🏼 (Yep! 6 weeks of anxiety leading up to Saturday night!!!) I’m so glad it’s over!!! I enjoyed being with my husband without the 6 kids, but I’d much rather be in my PJS watching Dateline or 48 Hours in bed with him😉!! Who’s looking forward to their significant others’ Christmas party?? Who isn’t?? Who would rather be at home?? #vsg #wls #anxiety #socialanxiety early #transformationtuesday #motivationmonday #motivationalmonday

Story time 📖 Now those who know me or watched my first YouTube video. Heard me speak on how I gained 86lbs after having my first & only child. I just thought it was baby weight but when it didn’t come off right away I got depressed & insecure. But that didnt stop me from trying my hardest to get the weight off. I loved/love myself regardless however I knew being heavy and unhealthy was not for me. TODAY.... my story gets better after 2 years of gym training, Keto eating & VSG I am almost down to my before baby weight. (10lbs away from 220) 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 Now it’s time to work even harder and set new goals for myself. As I continue on my lifestyle change I continue to grow & confidence is at its highest I’ve seen in the past 6 years. I’m extremely proud of myself I’ve lost 80lbs and I can’t give up now. Plus I have people watching ☺️👀 . .(now I need to get rid of my back rolls and cellulite) 🤦🏾‍♀️ #motivationmonday . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Bariatric #VSG #vsgcommunity #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #bariatricsurgery #sleevegastrectomy #aftersurgery #losingweight #weightlossjourney #keto #ketodiet #wls #thickthighssavelives #ketotransformation #weightlosstransformation #bariactricsleeve #fitness #blackgirlsworkout #fattofitjourney #bbw #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsginstacrew #vsgsupport #beforeandduring #vsggirl #blackwomenlosingweight
One of my old work buddies stopped by today. She had VSG three years ago and knew I was working through my pre-op requirements from my insurance company. Surgery should be late January or in February. Normally she brings me sweets or whatnot for Christmas but this year she brought me a couple protein drinks to try and a baby formula container that holds 3 svgs of protein powder. I’m so blessed to have supportive friends who I KNOW will be there for me every step of the way. It means the world to me. #vsg #vsgpreopdiet #vsgprotein #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls
Hi friends, I hope everybody’s doing well in their wellness journey. I just wanted to share My Fitness Pal which is that app that I use to track my food. It’s very helpful. There are times when I think I may not be eating enough food or consuming enough protein. I check the app and it turns that I may be consuming enough food but not enough protein. Either way I highly recommend it. #myfitnesspal #fitnessmotivation #foodtracking #foodjourney #foodjournal #fooddiary #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgfood #vsgfooddiary #vsgfoodie #vsgeats #vsgfoodjournal #weightlosstransformation #weighlossjourney #fatlossjourney #bariatricsurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleevegastrectomy #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevebeforeandafter #gastricsleevesurgery
I’m still the same me. No I don’t work out, or do a crazy diet. (I probably should😜) It’s crazy looking back 2 years and to think my 2 year anniversary from VSG is next month on the 28th! Best decision I ever made 😃👍🏻 #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #sleevedlife #sleeved #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevebeforeandafter #verticalsleevegastrectomy #tijuana #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney
Today I weighed in and I’ve lost 1.8lbs, which brings the total to 4st 8.2lbs (64.2lbs) I know I’m generally a bit slower than average on here but I’m still amazed at the progress in 4 months and 2 weeks. I’m now just over halfway to my goal weight 😊 #goalweight #anewme #mondaymotivation #vsg #vsguk #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsglife #gastricsleeve #gastricsurgery #gastricsleeveuk #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #weightloss #weightlossdiary #weightlossuk #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #weightlosssuccess #wls #wlsuk #wlscommunity #wlsstory #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #bariatricbabes
So these are my supplements. The three bottles on left, I will most likely be taking for the rest of my life, the ones on right are temporary. It’s a preventative anti acid- 5 more months, a precautionary pressure pill- 2 more months, and the last is a gallstone preventative- 6 months. . These Alive! vitamins do the job nicely, I like that it’s based off veggies and fruits and that it’s only one a day. 👍🏻💕 . . . . . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlosssupport #preopvsg #preop #instacouple #marriage #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #weightlosssupport #menwholift #bariatricsurgery #healthy #fit #womenwholift #portioncontrol #postopvsg #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevebeforeandafter #gastricsleevecommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy
#iwant2jumpinto2019 Im definitely wanting to jump start/start off this new year right! I love challenges and when I was younger I loved jumping rope at recess with my friends! Wanting to join the challenge to have accountability, do something I loved doing when I was younger, and to push myself to the next level...plus I never win anything, but that still hasn’t stopped me from trying anyway!!

Less than 2 months away! So close, I can taste it! I have a pre op appointment with my dietitian on Saturday. I am seeing my psychologist next week. I haven't seen her since September, before surgery was booked. I can't wait to tell her!

#motivationmonday Today is a new day. Yesterday is gone. Promise yourself, “It all starts right now.” • #merrychristmas from a mirror I can’t keep clean and a bathroom decorated in snowmen! • So it’s official, all of my pants for work and most of my jeans I own; TOO BIG! Extremely happy and frustrated at the same time... I’m now exclusively wearing jeggings. Bonus: they hold me in pretty well... hello saggy skin. #nsv#142poundsdown #transformation #transformationloading #livingwithvsg #success #weightloss #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsurgery #bariatricsurgery #beforeandafterweightloss #losingweight #weightlossjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #photojournal #weightlosstransformation #weightlosssurgery #lifeaftervsg
