Literally having the time of my life on vacation in Florida! I zip lined!!! 4 months ago I wouldn’t have made the weight requirement but I made it with a lot of pounds to spare! I walked for an hour and forty minutes for a ghost tour in St. Augustine and I’ve been on 6 boat rides as of tomorrow! I swam in a clear water lagoon! I swam in the Atlantic Ocean where there was a dolphin swimming 20 feet in front of us in the waves! I love having my life back!! #vsg #verticlesleeve #nsv #florida #vacation
I’m awkward when it comes to being in front of the camera. I’m much more comfortable being behind it. 🤪
Just under 6 months apart. I’ve till got a long way to go but I’m happy with where I am right now.

for you this morning. I don’t remember the last time I’ve worn jeans. It’s definitely been over a year, possibly two. I couldn’t find any jeans that fit me. I was already in a size 30 jeans. I had a pair of size 32, but even they were a bit tight. I started wearing leggings everyday. They could stretch, and they were the only comfortable thing I could wear. I’m guessing before my surgery I was a size 34, but I don’t know for 100% since I refused to buy clothes that big, so leggings it was. Well this morning, I woke up and decided to try on my jeans that I packed away. I have probably have 10-15 pairs of jeans all different sizes and styles that I refused to throw away because I knew one day I’d fit them. Well, YA GIRL FITS JEANS. I still have a long way to go, but this is the first step!! The jeans are actually a little big in the waist(OF COUSE NOT THE BUTT). I might try on a pair that’s one size smaller in a few days. I have three or four different sizes. I’m super excited. My co-worker told me this morning she’s never seen me in anything other than leggings, WELL NOT ANYMORE 💁🏼♀️💁🏼♀️ #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #verticlesleeve #verticlesleevesurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #diet #healthy #bed #bingeeatingdisoder #nonscalevictory #nonscalevictories
Spent an amazing weekend away with my husband last weekend. We started out with a 3 hour spa date which was amazing, other than the fact that I felt so disappointed with myself when I was in my bathing suit in front of him in such a romantic place! I’ve been going through the process of getting approved to have the gastric sleeve, and I hope that the next time we get to take a trip like this I am in a healthier place! I see all these amazing transformations, and I hope that with hard work, I can be one of them. #verticlesleeve #gastricsleeve #weightlosssurgery #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity
Finally discharged out of the hospital! Wasn’t the easiest to go through but I am so grateful for all the love & support I’ve received in the past couple of days. Thank you to those precious friends who showed up & kept me company, made everything so much easier & I couldn’t be more grateful!
Still a little sore but it can only get better from here, so ready and excited for what’s to come from now on! 🤩
Selling my Fitbit Versa. I bought it June 1st of this year. Comes with everything pictured. I hate wearing watches and I should have known better because I can't stand wearing it. $150 and that includes shipping!
So long back rolls. You won’t be missed. ✌️✌️
When your everyday tank turns into your sleep shirt in a few short months, that’s a win! ❤️
I can’t even put into words how thankful I am for my sleeve. It has given me the help that I need to overcome that huge hurdle that I just couldn’t get over on my own.
Losing 109 pounds has completely changed the person that I am- for the better. I look, and think of food, and my life differently. Today I was talking with a friend, and I said something that I was scared to say. If I kept eating at the rate I was, and didn’t go out and exercise, I would have been dead in 5 years, no doubt in my mind. I’m so much happier, and PROUD of myself. Losing weight is difficult, but being overweight is also difficult. Choose your difficult. I still have a long road ahead of me, but I am not giving up. 💕💕 (if you’re looking for a gym to start going to, PLEASE consider @anytimefitnesstownecenter

*SCREAMS*!!!!! I hit goal weight y’all!!!! 😭😭😭 The goal weight set by my doctor was 170lbs, this morning I weighed 169.3lbs!!! I have lost 79.8% of my excess body weight.
My BMI went from 64.18 to 31.99
My pants went from a size 26 to a 10
My shirt size went from a 4X to a medium.
This was the absolute best decision I’ve made in my life. No more high blood pressure, I sleep like a rock, I have energy, I can go up stairs and walk for miles and not feel like I’m going to die. I am in awe that this has happened. It was always the plan, but when you have been obese since you were an adolescent you never really feel like it’s obtainable... but I have obtained it.
Along with my tool, every step I’ve taken, trail I’ve walked, calorie I counted, bad choice I pushed away has gotten me here today.
Where to next? We’re gonna keep pushing! The plan now is to continue on my path see where I end up by Jan. and at that point I will most likely need to go into maintenance in order to start prepping for plastics. Which is terrifying and exciting all at the same time... but I’m ready.
Thank you again to all of you that walk this journey with me, sing my praises or even just give me that knowing smile of acknowledgement. You have been a blessing. More to come!
