Didn’t get to go to the gym this morning, but have got an afternoon walk in, so that kind of makes up for it . . . . 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 #MyJourneyToAHealthierBec #MyWeightLossJourney #WeightLoss #WeightLossJourney #WeightLossSurgery #WLS #WLSAustralia #VerticalSleeveGastrectomy #VSG #VSGAustralia #GastricSleeve #GastricSleeveAustralia #DrLiew #Fitness #StrengthAndDetermination #EveryoneStartsSomewhere #CloserThanYesterday

Happy 1st Surgiversary to me! Getting here has been quite a journey so I got all dolled up in my 17 year-old daughter's size zero, gold sequin dress. As a gift to myself and anyone who wonders about this journey, I've created this page. It is a page of remembrance and learning. Will you tag along? . . . . .#vsg #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleeve #wls #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #verticalsleeve #wlscommunity #sleevegastrectomy #weightlosssurgery #vsginstafam #weightlossmotivation #weightloss #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #vsgbeforeandafter #lifeafterwls #vsgliving #wlsjourney #vsglife #beforeandafter #lifeaftervsg #vsgbeforeandduring
Another step closer to getting this pre-op stage done for surgery. I Had to do a barium swallow with live vision xrays today, this is because I get pretty bad heartburn & nausea or swallowing is hard. The surgeon doesn't want me to get certain procedures that'll make it worse or give me gerd, it's process of elimination. Next step is an EKG but today wasn't bad it just wasn't fun. #wlscommunity #preopwls #wlsjourney #pcoscommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #preop #pcosawereness #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsg
HUGE SCORE @rossdressforless found an @underarmourwomen cowel neck zip jacket/sweater thing which I absolutely loved as soon as I saw it!

📷@keto.queen.norma Haven't been to the gym in about 2 weeks... about to get my workout started 💪💪💪 Tagging a few for ... ❤️ follow @W.L_guide for more like this.
This is what I ate today. I had a 4oz burrata in the fridge that’s expiry was today. So obviously I had to eat it. 😂 Aside from that, I ate intuitively and tracked all my food at the end of the day. I was pleased to find that I was roughly within the bounds of my calorie/macro goals! They are: 1200cal, 80-100g protein and 1:1 ratio of protein to carbohydrates. I don’t typically do quite as much fat, but like I said, burrata. 😍 #wlseats #vsgeats #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #wlscommunity #wls #myfitnesspal #vsgsupport #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve
I can’t get my stupid watch to pair with my phone... so here’s my day. Went walk/jogging with friends this evening. No bleachers for me, but only because husband had to leave for work. I missed Monday night and Wednesday, so I knew I had to be there today even for 40 minutes. 🙌🏻 . #aspiringfitmom #fitmom #fitlife #weightlossmotivation #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #vsgjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsginstafam #vsgsupport #weightlossgoals #fitnessmotivation #wlscommunity #wls #wlslife #fitness #fitgoals #workout #goals #verticalsleevegastrectomy #accountability #fitfam #fitbitblaze
I know size is just a number but when you have never seen this size in your entire life it kinda means a little bit. I have been feeling down because I haven’t lost pounds this month at all and am at the longest stall I have had since surgery....this helps a little though. @watchkittyshrink just want you to know I aspire to be like you one day and watch your videos when I am down. You have helped me through the journey. Thank you!!! . #wls #100poundsdown #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wlscommunity #weightlosstransformation #cantstopwontstop #newpants #weightloss #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #bariatricsurgery
Dinner before and after tonight! Garlic lemon chicken, new potatoes, and broccoli! Super yum and all baked on one pan - the kids even loved it. About 8oz of total food to start and about 4oz leftover 🤷🏻‍♀️
THis journey hasn’t been only about the outside, but also feeling better on the inside. Being healthier gives you so much energy and just a different view in life. I’m 40lbs down and looking forward to what the future brings ❣️ . . . . #vsg #vsgcommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgjourney #vsgeats
These are my official pre-op pics ! I started at 326 and will post a weekly update ! I can’t thank Dr. Jawed enough ! My friend was amazed how quick it was when he went to tell him it was all done ! 45 minutes and a lifetime of hope given to my son and I. I picked up my son for the first time in 3 days and as soon as he saw me he busted into tears in from of his whole class. He definitely misssed me and said thank you Dr.Jawed for not hurting my mommy 😭. I cannot wait to see how positive this change will have on my life and the new exciting things waiting for me! @njbariatricsurgeons thank you so much for this !! You have given me a new chance at life and a longer life with my son!
I came across this picture today from 2016 at 292 lbs and then today 175 lbs. I can’t wait for #BodyByGalvez I never got the call on my levels/labs today but I’m pretty sure I’ll get a call tomorrow. Still trying my best to stay positive!!! I’m ready to see me!!! The new me!!!

My 4 incisions ... took a shower today and took off the clear bandages .. no pain just gas pressure ! The blood is dried not fresh ( don’t get worried ) Dr. Jawed was absolutely amazing!! @njbariatricsurgeons
Me 4 weeks ago lol passed out, holding my puke cup. I had my surgery early that morning and didn't wake up until that night. They had me so doped up. One month gone and I'm down a size in jeans. #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #wlscommunity #wls #wlsfamily #bariatricsurgery #bariatric #4weekspostop

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
My first side by side comparison, I’m a little over 7 months out from my surgery figured it was time for one. Almost a year difference in the pics on the left 09.15.18 and on the right 09.17.17 almost 100lb difference in the pics 😬 And in the last pic screenshots of my insurance/job yearly health assessment. I’m not big on measuring so it’s nice to have this information. An 18 inch difference in my waist and my BMI went from over 44 to almost 29!! Now if I could just get myself back in the gym I’d feel more accomplished 😩🤷🏽‍♀️ I’ve come a long way and have the rest of my life to keep going. Can’t wait to see what will be a year from now. | | | | | | | | | #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #mygrammerisnotperfect #vsgsurgery #myjourney #weightlosssupport #wlsfam #wlsstory #weightlossjourney #throwbackthursday #tbt #wlscommunity #nsv #nonscalevictory #092018 #summerdress #wlsjourney #newpost #sidebyside #oneyeardifference

Responding to my homeboy's @moosevsg #sds . Your cheap as #bariatriconabudget lifter is back at it. Now I am never one to knock anyone's hustle, but I picked this pool noodle up for $1 at Dollar Tree, now it is function as a Fat Gripz. If you've ever wanted to try their product, but don't have $40, give this a try. It's supposed to increase bicep gains, overall grip strength, and forearm strength. Tagging a few people who might enjoy this hack. Check out Fat Gripz reviews to see if you might benefit. @hawaiian_she_hulk , @ajessicamaryahreduction , @brooks_weightloss @bigbodybanks @vsgjeff @_.katie.lee._ @mrs_food_e @noco_sleeved @barbells.andcake8 . . . #bariatriconabudget #vsg #vsglife #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #bariatric #sleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #health #healthy #fitness #protein #recipe #wlsinstacrew #vsginstacrew   #verticalsleeve #extremeweightloss #runnerwannabe #eightbitathletics #fitness #fitnessgeek

#throwbackthursday A little less than a year ago, I had to hold my husbands hands just so they wouldn’t fall off my stomach because he could barely reach! Now only 8 weeks out from surgery and his hands almost touch without straining!! Loving this journey 💕💕
So I haven’t been able to eat since my baby dog passed away on Monday. It was difficult because my husband had to go on a business trip on Tuesday. So I drug myself out of bed today when he was coming home and made this chili. I wasn’t able to eat much of it, but it tasted really good.. comforting. If you want it even more low carb just leave out the corn tortillas. On a good note I guess is that I’ve lost 5 lbs this week. Recipe is in my links in my profile. #keto #vsg #vsgeats #vsgsurgery #wlsfoods #wls #wlssupport #weightlossdiary #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosscommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #vsgfood #vsgjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlseats #wlsfood #wlsstrong #wlssurgery #weightlosssurgery #ketodiet #ketolife #ketofood #ketolifestyle #ketomeal #lowcarb
Since it’s apparently monsoon season in Minnesota (seriously...it’s been raining ALL week 🙄🖕🏼) I went to RMS to get 1.66 miles in to complete my #stepbet for today. Then got completely soaked trying to get to my car ☔️ 🤷🏻‍♀️ #natgetsnimble #closeyourrings #wls #vsg #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy
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
➡️➡️➡️ Swipe to see my STATS!! (I am down 18.8lb according to my home scale *weighed myself this morning* and 17lbs at my appointment). My starting weight was 263lbs, incase anyone is not so great at math 😇. Feeling super motivated and excited for what’s to come!!! . . . #wlscommunity #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsglife #measurements #wls #wlsjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy
Still here. Still big. Currently making a plan and grateful for all of you that share your journey!
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 #
📷@shal_i_inspire One Day or DAY ONE. You decide. One of the most relatable quotes for me is “Change happens when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of making a change”. For me, my “pain” was when I hit 180 lbs. I couldn’t stand looking at myself in the mirror, I had lost both my confidence and energy. I had zero energy when I came home from work and was too tired to play with my kids. I actually blamed my situation and made excuses for my setbacks 🤦🏻‍♂️. Finally, I realized that I needed to stop complaining about how I was feeling and DO something about it. So, in April of 2017, I made a conscious decision to change my eating habits. In 3 months, I had lost 27 lbs, JUST BY CHANGING MY DIET. No working out. I removed all the crap I had been eating and began having a healthy, consistent diet. Shortly after I had lost the weight, I met @_xifit_ a personal trainer, who coached me into a whole new person. I slowly started seeing my muscles show and tone in places I hadn’t ever seen 😬😁. My confidence is back and now I have more energy than I know what to do with. It wasn’t just the results that motivated me, it was those negative feelings I mentioned earlier that made it become a habit. I never wanted to feel that way again. Now, I wake up early, EXCITED to go to the gym. I go to work, even stay late and still have energy to play with my kids when I get home. My partner and I have turned meal prepping into a weekly routine. I have balance in my life. And I thought to myself, if I can feel this way then I want other people to feel this way too. So, this is my journey, I hope it inspires you to start yours. Happy New Year 💪🏼😁💯 ❤️ follow @W.L_guide for more like this.

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

#facetofacefriday . So much has changed between these two picture. Aside from 50kg and my update in glasses, I’ve changed my mindset. But, now I need to work on my patience. I have to slow down my eating, slow down my thinking and slow down my expectations. I need to trust in myself and what I’m doing, and believe that I’ve finished yoyoing. Thanks to all you vsg peeps maintaining at or below goal. You’re fantastic motivation for me x . . . . . . #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsg #sleevesisters #vsgaustralia #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsgeats #vsginstafam #vsgsurgery #gastricsleevesurgery #weightlossjourney #wlsfamily #verticalsleevegastrectomy #goalweight #vsggoals #vsgbeforeandafter #beforeandafter #transformation #aftervsg #ftf
My truth: I wasn’t lazy in the before photo. I worked my arse off every day to the point of utter exhaustion. I wasn’t less focussed. I didn’t lack will power. I haven’t had to work hard to lose the 12kgs I’ve lost in around 6 weeks. I exercised a lot before and even when I didn’t intentionally exercise, I did >10,000 steps per day. I was ALWAYS on a diet. I was always hungry. Always! I had surgery on 28 August. I got a vertical gastric sleeve which cut out the hunger gland and reduces the amount of grehlin my body produces and limits portion sizes I can eat. My blood pressure has dropped to normal levels, I sleep better, my blood sugars are better, the weight off my joints feels amazing. I feel hungry cues only when I really need to eat and I feel full almost immediately. I didn’t have a food addiction so this wasn’t a psychological thing for me and it hasn’t been an emotional adjustment. This surgery is freedom for me, even with the adjustments. I have no regrets. #vsg #wls #weightlossjourney #vsgcommunity #weightloss #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #weightlosstransformation #vsgjourney #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #weightlosssurgery #wlsjourney #sleevegastrectomy #wlsaustralia #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wlstransformation #vsgsupport #gastricsleevesurgery #vsgsurgery #vsglife #vsginstafam
If you’ve struggled to lose weight on your own and you’re contemplating surgery, just do it. It’s a tool but if you use it correctly and give it your all it will return the favor. throwbackthursday #tbt #throwbackthursday
Boom! This betch hiked Half Dome in Yosemite!!! More footage to come!
My face has lost some of its roundness and I ain’t mad at it! #throwbackthursday #tbt
Today on the menu for lunch: brussel sprouts, steak (very thin slice), and salsa. If you would have told me a year ago this is what I'd be eating I wouldn't have believed you.
