I love these because they are just so random. Officially 80 lbs down since the start. Can’t believe I’m only 20 away from the big 100 lb loss! The most I’ve ever lost on my own in the past was 50 lbs & even that wasn’t from really trying; it was from a medicine change. These 80 lbs have been fought for every step of the way! . . . . . #postvsg #vsgpostop #wls #vsg #sleeve #vsgcommunity #weightloss #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgjourney #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #wlsjourney #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsglife #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #vsgsurgery #bariatric #wlsfamily #bariatricsleeve #verticalsleeve

Hey! 🖐 it’s #facetofacefriday and I don’t even recognize that girl on the left. I looked so unhealthy before. My skin is so much healthier now. I feel like I’m glowing, I’m taking great vitamins, eating healthy and I have tons of energy! 💗🙌🏻 . . #sleevesisters #bariatricbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #sleevebabe #bodypositive #weightlosssurgery #vsg #motivation #weightloss #teamlosing #vsglifestyle #vsgcrew #vsginstacrew #vsgtransformation #teamlosing
MAMA I MADE IT. I have never been in a size 10 before and these went on like BUTTER. I am trying to not get emotional rn, but I am low key freaking out. Okay I’ll stop being annoying now.

My first #facetoface Friday. The picture above was taken in March when we were on vacation in Seattle and the picture on the bottom was taken this past weekend when we were in Mendocino. There is almost a six month difference between these two photos. I can't believe how much I have changed in that time! #facetofacefriday #weightlosssurgery #wls #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity
Erik Palencar, posted a few months ago has since lost 50 more lbs, 150 lbs total since #verticalsleevegastrectomy in Dec '17. He loves how much energy he now has and only regret is he did not have #bariatricsurgery sooner. So rewarding to be a part of his #weightlosstransformation #beaumonthealth #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsg #wls #gastricsleeve #vsgsurgery #vsgstrong #wlssupport #wlssuccess #gettingfit #menshealth #msuspartans
Anyone else tried this? I think it's really good, but has a little bit of a protein taste. I'm supposed to be on a bland diet until monday, since I'm having gallbladder problems, but even bland foods make me throw up so I figured I'll just stick to low fat foods. This is fairly low fat so hopefully I'll be able to keep it down. I see my surgeon Monday for gallbladder testing. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsglife #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleeve #sleevedlife #sleevedsisters #sleevesisters #sleevegastrectomy #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #weightlossjourney #weightloss #intermittentfasting #vsgeats #breakfast #highprotein #weightlosssurgery

Today makes 3 months since I started my new sleeved life style. Down 72 pounds since surgery and I’m more motivated than ever. #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #wls #bariatricsurgery #weightlosssurgery #gastricsleeve #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgbeforeandafter #weightlosssurgery #obesetobeast #vsginstacrew #vsgbabes #vsgfamily #sleeved #postopvsg
Time for a #flashbackfriday ! This was taken earlier this year, as I hung out at Disneyland. I BEGGED my friend to not post this photo, because while I left the house thinking I looked great, I saw myself and wanted to break down and cry. I couldn’t believe this was me; that I had gotten that big. I knew my weight, as I was a little ways into my program, but I hadn’t come to terms. I kept telling myself that it was just bad angles, or ill fitting clothing, anything to not face that I had done this to myself. I refused to take any photos after that encounter. Up to this point I had insisted on only taken face photos when I was out with friends. I could hide my weight with good angles, or hiding behind people. Despite my insistence my friend posted the photo anyways, and I wanted to hide. Run away from the world, but in a way I am glad she did. Because it gives me another photo to look back at, another look at who I will NEVER be again. #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #weightlossdiary #weightlossinspiration #weightlosssupport
Some days I don't feel different than the human on the left. I don't see the difference. That's okay though, because there is so much different about my life now. Trusting soon I will see the difference again. #facetofacefriday . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #rny #vsgfamily #verticalsleeve #vsgcommunity #sleeved #weightlosssurgery #wlsfamily #bariatricsleeve #vsglife #verticalsleevegastrectomy #fitnessmotivation #weightlossjourney #motivation #diet #wlssupport #vsg #vsgjourney #weightloss #fat2fit #fitness #lowcarb #facetoface #transformation #weightlosstransformation #motivation
#facetofacefriday 30lbs down! I can’t believe I can already see this much of a difference 😱 seeing these two pics next to each other just amazes me because in the first pic I thought I was happy then, but looking at the second pic you can tell just how happy I really am and how much better things are getting for me! I love all the energy I have and it only can get better from here! Got the okay yesterday to move onto soft foods a couple days early and I really can’t wait to eat a cheese stick 😂 . . . #vsg #verticalsleeve #vsgfam #vsgsupport #vsginstagram #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleeve #sleeved #weightlossjourney #weightloss #gastricsleeve #rny #gastricbypass #rouxeny #wls #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #vsgeats #bariatricbabes #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #gastricsleevelife #vsginstacrew #vsginstafam #lifeafterwls #vsglife #healthylifestyle
Face to face Friday and maaaaaan has it been a week. This is the face of a mom of FIVE dealing with adoption courts, insurance companies after a car wreck on vacation, and an undefined stomach bug. Oh and researching car seats because replacing all of them at once is good times 🙄 No makeup and hopefully the added benefit of stress helping me lose a little extra on vacay. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Cause lets be real... I have ate ALL the food this week. Goodbye doughnuts, goodbye fries, goodbye sweet treats...it's been real. One week to go and life will change forever! #foodfunerals #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleevecommunity #verticalsleeve #wlscommunityvsg
#facetofacefriday swipe 👉 to see before! today 162lbs, wearing a scarf and not feeling suffocated 👉 around 230lbs and filtered to the max, I never had a neck 😂 so not only have I gained a neck, I also feel like my eyes look bigger now, and I don't filter the shit out of my pics 😂🤷‍♀️ Happy Friday babes! 😗 #hellooctober #october #spooky #fallmakeup #wlsgoals #goals #facetofacefriday #tranformation #personal #planetfitness #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic
These are size 10’s and a M top 😱 I can’t even believe it. I knew for sure there was no way 10’s would fit yet. And I never thought I would be in M again - not even at goal. I just can’t believe it! I’ve been feeling so down about my progress lately and getting new winter clothes yesterday was a real confidence booster! No wonder my only 2 pairs of jeans I had were driving me crazy - they are 14’s! And now that I think about it - once I get a tummy tuck down the road to remove all the loose skin from my apron, I would be in a 6 or 8 bc it takes up a lot of space. And I still have a good 40-50lbs to lose. I can’t fathom that I might wind up eventually in a 4 or 6 - that doesn’t seem possible or realistic! Wow! ________________________________________________________ #kellitransforming #95lbsdown #fattofit #watchmeshrink #wlslife #wlsgo #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsfam #wlsfamily #wlsstrong #wlstransformation #wlsinspiration #wlsinspiration #wls #bariatricsurgery #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevesurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsgjourney #vsginspiration #vsgcommunity #vsgstrong
This has been my reality for a few months. Up and down from this weight. I am thinking this is where my body wants to be. This is a tough realization for me and it doesn't mean I am going to stop trying. However, I am happy where I am. I am so much better off than I was two years ago, and I hope to continue. I eat like shit some days, but I really do try to do the absolute best I can. It isn't easy, but so so worth it. Here is to be around 145, (give or take 5 pounds). .. . . . . . . . . . . #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #rny #vsgfamily #verticalsleeve #vsgcommunity #sleeved #weightlosssurgery #wlsfamily #bariatricsleeve #vsglife #verticalsleevegastrectomy #fitnessmotivation #weightlossjourney #motivation #diet #wlssupport #vsg #vsgjourney #weightloss #fat2fit #fitness #lowcarb #l #transformation #weightlosstransformation #motivation #weighin

I'm lucky enough to work at a food place where my co workers make me miniature versions of anything I want 😂 Waldorf chicken salad in a lettuce wrap
Because why not 😎
While everyone in my office is indulging on these I just look 👀 and move on. I don’t even want any. Before VSG I’d be all over them! I have to think of my goal here, 5 more lbs to go to lose a total of FIFTY LBS!! I got this 😁 #weightlossjourney #healthy #vsg #gastricsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #verticalsleeve #bariatric #bariatricpatient #vsgjourney #vsgliving #vsgfoods #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #vsgchallenges #bariatricsurgery #vsgvictories #bodypositive #vsginstacrew #beforeandduring #wlsstories #vsgcommunity #plussize #curvy #selflove #selfcare #emotionsgonewild #wlscommunity
3 days until surgery! I'm starting to freak out a bit. BFF comes in tomorrow! I have to do a liquid diet on Sunday. I'm thinking sushi for dinner tonight! #vsgjourney #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #weightlossjourney #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevecommunity
Today was 1 week post op since my surgery 10/11/2018.. I wish you could see the stats better but I first visited with my surgeon in March at 350.6.. I didn't actually get serious about weight loss until June when it hit me this IS REAL.. so since June I lost 55lbs on my own and since surgery I have lost around 13lbs weighing 282.5 my BMI has already dropped around 10points from Morbidly obese to severely obese so obviously I still have a ways to go but I'm excited to continue to see the drop! Not just the scale but all aspects! 🙌🙌
I said "Self" ...myself said "Hmm?"... "Well you've been off your water pills so you could be carrying water weight." ...Well I was right!! I teared up because this is a major victory for me. I haven't seen the 200's since like the 6th grade. While girls were wearing their Daisy Dukes and tennies skirts I was just hoping I didn't reach 400 pounds by highschool. Crazy thing is, I was never a big eater, and very active and outgoing. I just ate the wrong things. I am grateful for this journey. I started it a year ago at 405 pounds. Six months ago March 19th my surgery day I had worked my way down to 378 pounds. I am so elated that on this very date six months in I have lost 80 pounds since surgery and 106 pounds total from my starting weight!!!! #ButGod #GrandeBeauty #TheRealGrandeBeauty #GrandéBeauty #BlackWomenLosingWeight #vsg #verticalsleeve #vsgjourney #transformationtuesday #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightlosstransformation #wlsinspiration #sleevelife #sleevegastrectomy #wlslife #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #losingfat #losingweightjourney #wlssupport #wlslife #bpvsg #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #wls #vsgbeforeandafter #weightlossjourney #weightloss #extremeweightloss #wlstransformation
Face to face Friday! Excuse me while I freak out! Guys this shirt used to fit perfectly, it was a little tight in the arms but I used to feel like I looked amazing in it! 110 pounds later and I still feel amazing in it, but I feel that way because it shows me how far I’ve come! - - - - #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
A lot can change in 19 months. To say that this journey has been hard would be an understatement. Most people don't know all of the issues that I face on a daily basis or the fact that I struggle to even move most days because of the pain. But, in all honesty I am 100% thankful and feel so blessed that I have had the opportunity to be in this journey. I have lost a grand total of 108lbs and I am quiet proud of where I am. I have fought and struggled my whole life to feel the way I do now and it feels great. #ftffriday #fridayfeels #wlscommunity #wlsinstacrew #prevsg #preopvsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #weightloss #vsglife #vsgfamily #vsgfamilystrong #wlslife   #verticalsleevegastrectomy #bariatricsurgery #wlssupposrt #fitfam   #healthyinsideandout   #becomingabetterme #doingitforourfirst
#facetofacefriday I just stumbled upon this before picture from one of my friends Facebook pages. I’m cracking up. This is the face of such an unhappy insecure college student who just desperately wanted to look like everyone else. ❤️ I love her so much.

I got your Face to Face Friday, girrrrl!!!! I accidentally came across this video last night.... My first thought when seeing this video after the initial shock was: I can’t believe you went out in public looking like this!! 😭. I dismissed those negative thoughts and became grateful for it- where I came from, what I’ve learned so far, and the places I still have to go! If I didn’t get to that point I wouldn’t be here today with the knowledge I have. God takes us places where we need to refine ourselves. I did this to myself, but He brought me out of it. Everyday I learn something new about myself. I love my new life and where I’m going. Life is not easy; it was not easy then and it’s not easy now. It’s easier to live weighing 116lbs less, though. If you don’t take advantage of this journey then you’re not living life to your full potential. You will be blessed for your efforts. You will have results when you exchange your bad habits for healthy lifestyle changes. Not all at once though, one at a time. Get rid of one bad habit at a time. Add one healthy lifestyle change at a time. Doing too much change at once can lead to feeling overwhelmed, which can lead to feeling defeated, then depressed. There’s no deadline on YOUR journey. Make the best of it and share what you’ve learned; because YOU have a story to tell too. 💗 And the story behind the meat is in my stories 😂
Good morning!!! Thank goodness it’s Friday!!! I know this isn’t important but I decided to use this thing today and it actually moved. Must have been the good poo 💩 I took right before getting on it lol. Actually the last few days I eliminated one of my protein shakes and ate actual food. Not sure if I’ll keep doing it but that’s the only difference I can think of. Anyway...have a good day y’all! #weightlossjourney #healthy #vsg #gastricsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #verticalsleeve #bariatric #bariatricpatient #vsgjourney #vsgliving #vsgfoods #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #vsgchallenges #bariatricsurgery #vsgvictories #bodypositive #vsginstacrew #beforeandduring #wlsstories #vsgcommunity #plussize #curvy #selflove #selfcare #emotionsgonewild #wlscommunity
#facetofacefriday I will take all the wrinkles that have come, all the loose skin I have and everything we perceive as negative in trade for the life I've gained a million times over. The internal process has revealed more to me about myself during this journey, it's an aspect I hadn't counted on but one I am so grateful for. . . . . . . . . . #wls #vsg #vsgliving #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgbeforeandduring #lifeaftervsg #vsg2016 #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgsurgery #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgcrew #vsgfamily #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #sleevegastrectomy #vsgsuccess #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #bariatricsurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #down150lbs #extremeweightloss
Whoo Hoo!! I feel so much better today! Walking really helped reduce the gas pain. I was releasing all the gas last night and today I feel so good!!

Happy #FlexFriday everyone im super excited to finally say I've lost over 100lbs since my weightloss journey started on 5/21/2018.

And just when i was losing all hope at ever getting these last 25-30lbs off of me...a photo comes along in my memories that reminds me just how far I’ve come, To breath, and to trust the process. ♥️ #wls #gastricsleeve #sleevedlife #weightlossjourney #myjourney #onedayatatime #weightlosstransformation #verticalsleevegastrectomy
same dress, a little less than a year apart. I feel like I’ve lost all my weight in my waist haha. And of course in the boobs 😅 (which is why I’m holding them up in the current picture. without a bra, they basically reach the floor 😂😭) . . . #vsgcommunity #weightlossprogress #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #vsg #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #wlsbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation
feeling pretty good in these shorts, still. good enough to wear them out of the house. loving being able to wear some of these shorter shirts and blouses tucked in without being worried about the ~gunt~ area looking too gross. #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #sleevegastrectomy #vsgaustralia #vsgjourney #vsg #vsglife #vsgsisters #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #losingweight #bariatricbabes #bariatricsleeve #vsgcommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgbeforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #losing #vsgrecovery #nsv #nonscalevictory
Slowly but surely I am fitting into other brands size 8. These are a Levi's sz 8, and if it weren't for the copious amounts of loose skin on my stomach, they'd fit perfectly. They fit Amazing in the legs, but the belly is just a tad tight. That will change soon enough though!!! I am hoping I will get to a sz 6 after my tummy tuck, I have a LOT of loose skin on my belly. I pulled the measuring tape tight today and my waist was 30.5-31", but I'm pretty hippy too. I would love to weigh less but I'm already quite skinny, that getting below 170 would prob be unhealthy for me. Especially with my height and low body fat % already (23.5). So we shall see what happens with time! I'm excited for every aspect of this journey!!!
