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
Today is the 8th anniversary of my mother death, she wasn't my biological mother but she loved me like I was her own, instead of having a bad day, I had a really great day . My walk hurt but I'm proud of it. #weightlossgoals #wls #weightlossjourney #rny #preop #gastricbypass #weightloss #bariatricsurgery #betterme #wlscommunity #walking #health #onemile #vsg #verticlesleeve

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 🙃}.

Finally out my slump, lost 4.8lb this week. I never gave up!! Today’s my 7 week surgiversary (30.6lb down) #wls #vsg #protein #wlsfood #postopvsg #egg #portioncontrol #verticlesleeve #verticlesleevegastrectomy #wlssupport #cleaneating #vsgvegetarian
Joining in for the #jackiemfpchallenge - go check out @jackies_strength and her stories for details. It’s basically sticking to your calorie tracking and actually obtaining the projected 5 week out weight that MFP gives you at the end of the day. (Which I haven’t done in FOREVER!) #wls #vsg #verticlesleevegastrectomy #verticlesleeve #weightloss #myfitnesspal
I’m awkward when it comes to being in front of the camera. I’m much more comfortable being behind it. 🤪
Dinner was fantastic! It's pratically a turkey taco power bowl wrapped in a low carb tortilla, minus sour cream since mine I bought was freakin' frozen...I was so bummed out, but a lil Chipotle sauce fixed that ♡ . . . . . . . . . . #protein #healthyeats #lowcarb #keto #ketolifestyle #ketoish #goingketo #progress #ilovemysleeve #vsgvictory #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgfamily #vsgcommunity #wlsstrong #wlsinstacrew #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #wlspatient #verticlesleeve #sleevelife #sleevepatient #barilife #julyninthtwothousandninteenmmo #wheredmyboobsgo #DrGeorgeEWodmanMD #bariatricbabes #fightingformylife #februarythirdtwothousandsixteen
Just under 6 months apart. I’ve till got a long way to go but I’m happy with where I am right now.
A little #nsv 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

I'm taking it easy at the gym tonight but it feels good to be back even if I'm biking slowly... def wont be doing squats anytime soon! #gastricsleever #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevelife #gastricsleevecrew #weightlossinspiration #weightlossdiary #weighloss #weightlossstory #Rhabdomyolysis #gymrat #gymfit #fattofit #fitnessmotivation #gymselfie #5monthpostopvsg #vsg #verticlesleeve
We named it "cabbhetti" at my house - it's spaghetti, but instead of noodles... cabbage. It's actually amazing, and a way healthier alternative. We're ridiculously cutting back on carbs so... here we go!

Time for #MotivationMonday ! HS Senior Pic, followed by 10 years later and then 20 years later. Getting rid of the weight makes you feel and look years younger than before! 4 year #surgiversary is coming up in a couple days so it's great to look back and reflect! Now if I go to my 20 year reunion next year, I won't feel embarrassed to go! #onwardsandupwards ! #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #cleaneating #beforeandafter #highschool #eatclean #fitness #dancing #gastricsleeve #healthy #health #instaselfie #motivation #nsv #rny #sleevegastrectomy #transformation #weightloss #wls #vsg #verticlesleeve #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #change #yes
This weekend has been full of meal prep and attempting to use non processed, or minimally processed, ingredients. From frozen breakfast burritos for work, plain Greek yogurt with fruit, roast in the crockpot, and tea with freshly picked sweet mint and spearmint, I'm pretty excited about this week's food and trying to stick to the unprocessed things as much as possible. I've decided that instead of focusing on carbs this week, I'm going to focus on real food and see how my body feels, since I tend to avoid natural sugars in things like fruit. Let's see how it goes! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #vsg #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #wls #verticalsleevesurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgpostop #bariatricsurgery #wlsprogress #wlscommunity #wlseats #vsgeats #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #vsgweightloss #verticlesleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsupport #sleevesurgery #vsgdiet #realfood #mealprep #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #weightlossmotivation #100poundslost #100lbsdown

Changing your bra and shirt with the door wide open and not thinking about it. Before I'd make sure that bitch was closed and locked.

And there ya have it folks :) Lunches for the next two days. Remember planning helps you stay on track. I'll be the first to admit if I do not plan ahead I will derail.

Trying out my Birthday/Christmas gift from last year :) We shall see how this turns out! We have: bottom rack, a bourbon rubbed pork loin w/ broccoli top rack, bacon wrapped spicy rubbed pork loin w/ broccoli, mixed peppers, & white onion.

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. ✌️✌️
Better late than never. Happy #face2face Friday 😳
31st birthday vs 32nd birthday. 🎂🎈🎁 This month has been full of excuses, and the 8 pounds I've gained are proof. Even with the gain, I'm much healthier than my last birthday. This is the first year I've actually lost the weight I said I would lose by my next birthday. 🎊 Happy birthday to me! Tomorrow I'll start being better with my food. 😂 #facetofacefriday #facetoface . . . . . . . . . . . . . #vsg #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #wls #verticalsleevesurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgpostop #bariatricsurgery #wlsprogress #wlscommunity #gastricsleevecommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlossproblems #weightlossjourney #vsgweightloss #verticlesleeve #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsupport #sleevesurgery #vsgdiet #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #weightlossmotivation #100poundslost #100lbsdown

I have good days & I have bad days, then I have days that I have to tell myself I am a warrior & I will keep on fighting. "I did not come this far just to come this far", I've said that time & time again. And I mean it every single time! I'm not done & until they lay me in the ground I will not be finished!!! . . . . . . . . . . . #protein #healthyeats #lowcarb #keto #ketolifestyle #ketoish #goingketo #progress #ilovemysleeve #vsgvictory #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgfamily #vsgcommunity #wlsstrong #wlsinstacrew #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #wlspatient #verticlesleeve #sleevelife #sleevepatient #barilife #julyninthtwothousandninteenmmo #wheredmyboobsgo #DrGeorgeEWodmanMD #bariatricbabes #fightingformylife #februarythirdtwothousandsixteen
I got my scrubs today. Being overweight my whole life, I was always scared & nervous about having to buy clothes. I was extremely nervous that they (scrubs) wouldn’t fit, and I would be so embarrassed in front of the class, but they do fit! The pants are actually a little too big around the waist(but not the butt 🙄 big butt problems). I hope that in a few months, I’ll have to buy new scrubs because they’ll be too big lol. Dental hygienist in the making, and 112 pounds down! #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #verticlesleeve #diet #bed #bingeeatingdisoder
I did a scavenger hunt around Chicago yesterday dressed as a bee 🐝 and I can truly say that losing weight has made life so much more enjoyable. I have energy, stamina, and the confidence to keep up with people who are not overweight. I can run FAST! It feels so good to just live and not worry about a damn thing! I feel like I haven't had a #nsv in a while due to my stall but this is the best one yet! I can do anything and not think about it!! My body is strong AF and I am so incredibly proud of myself for taking steps to have a better, healthier, and more fulfilling life. #weightloss #wls #wlscommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticlesleeve #bariatricsurgery #wlsharmony #vsgcommunity #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #nonscalevictory
My dad just sent me this pic from a couple weeks ago when we were camping. Who is that skinny girl?!?!? I still can’t believe that’s me! I guess that’s what happens when you’ve lost over 130lbs!! #vsg #vsgcommunity #verticlesleeve #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgtransformation #vsgeats #baria #vsgsurgery #vsgcrew #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily
The picture on the left was about 476 pounds, and the one on the right is 364. I still have a long way to go, but I’m excited about this 112 pound weight loss. All my clothes have been fitting 100% better, some are a little baggy, but I haven’t thrown or donated any of it yet. The dress I’m wearing today (on the right ) is getting too big, and I’m a little sad about it. This dress used to be my favorite dress because 1. It has pockets 2. It’s stretchy. It was always hard to find clothes to fit me, even at torrid, I was in their biggest size. So this dress was my bff because I knew it would fit. Now it’s almost too baggy, and I can’t wait to get home and change my clothes!! I can’t stand this dress being so big!! #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgsurgery #verticlesleeve #verticlesleevesurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlosssurgery #diet #healthy #BED #bingeeatingdisoder
Them legs tho 😩😩 I remember getting made fun of because of my “tree trunk” legs. I think I’ll always have big legs and I’m ok with that.

Today is my 6 month post-opt date. The picture on the left was in 2006. I know I was close to 500lbs. My highest weight recorded was 417 and today I’m 295. I’ve come along way from being on oxygen, losing over 80lbs on my own, and 42lbs since my surgery. The only regret is waiting a year before I even decided to start the program. I’m looking forward to the next goals I can accomplish during the next 6 months. #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #weightlossjourney #weighloss #instagram #ashleystewart #plussizefashion #plussize #bbw #health #fitfam #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #verticlesleeve #sleevesurgery #lifestylechange #life #fitness #obesity #workout #motivation

With the stress of putting my fur baby down my weight got away from me and I lost 3lbs in 4 days. I thought I was eating but apparently not enough. I am tall, 5’9, with broad shoulders so 172lbs was a comfortable weight for me. Back to focusing on nutrition and my well being. . . . . #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 #stress
It took EVERYTHING and The Good Lord himself to get me in this gym tonight. I had every excuse in the book 1. It’s too late 2. I’m tired 3. It’s dark outside 4. It’s cold outside 4. Spend time with your husband 5. You’re already in your pajamas 6.You can start TOMORROW 7. You didn’t eat bad today 8.You don’t see your kids enough (they were both in bed😂) THE STRUGGLE WAS REAL! The first pic shows how “thrilled” I was to be there, the smiling pic was after and how proud I was of myself for winning the tug of war with my brain.

I went to visit my 2nd family this week in Florida and lil bro @cashfienn was like...let me show you what I found. This is 2009 vs 2018. I had just graduated from college. I’m still amazed at the progress I’ve made on this journey. I wouldn’t change a thing. It was time to take control of my life because I still have so much more to live for 😍😘 #vsg #vsgjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #instagram #livingmybestlife #life #fitfam #healthylifestyle #healthy #selflove #change #fitness #vsgfamily #transformation #motivation #verticlesleeve #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #support
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 . The owners are so supportive & it’s a great place to be!) #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #verticlesleeve #vsgsupport #support #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #BED #diet #healthy
So I know there are several WLS clothes sharing pages or ppl selling their old clothes. Today I did a post about finally fitting in a size 18 and one of my followers @brithechange_ simply asked “hey do you want some clothes? I have that size.” I was actually amazed! On this journey, you are in and out of sizes so quickly that it is hard to buy new pieces so often. So I’ve come up with an idea 💡 ! #vsgpayitforward 👈🏾 in order to participate please do the following: 1. SHARE THIS POST 2. Tag me in it 3. Use the hashtag #vsgpayitforward 4. Include your current size. One of your followers will then inbox you for your address to send 5-6 ITEMS to you. All you will have to provide is the cost for shipping. **If you get an inbox from more than one person please do not accept. Allow someone else the opportunity.** (if this is something that has been already going for years I apologize and let me know how to get in on it😂) I FEEL LIKE THIS COULD BE FUN! Who doesn’t like free clothes?! One Rule 🙅🏽‍♀️ ABSOLUTELY NO CREEPERS! Ok, SHARE SHARE SHARE!! #vsg #vsglife #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsgstrong #wls #wlsstrong #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #wlsfamily #wlssupport #wlsfam #verticlesleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #bariatricsurgery #bariatric #bariatricsleeve
I feel like I apologize for my lack of posting each and every time I come on here because they’ve been so few and far between.... so here I am again.... sorry for my absence. I’ve literally just been over here LIVING MY BEST LIFE!!!! And I’ve been busy doing that!! My best friend in the ENTIRE world got married this weekend in Savannah, GA and I was feelin’ myself!!! It was SO GOOD to get away with my husband and celebrate one of my favorite people with all of my favorite people in one of thee most gorgeous cities in the world!! This weekend was an absolute dream and it felt so good to feel good about myself and, for the first time in a long time, love the girl I see in the mirror!!! I’ve fallen off the wagon with going to the gym, counting my calories, tracking my food, BUT I PROMISE.... I’m jumping back on it this week!! Either way, I’m still so satisfied with how far I’ve come and the progress I’ve made!!! So here’s to living this best life and continuing to maintain ✌🏼😎♥️🍑🔥 • • • • • • #WLS #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #verticlesleeve #weightlosssurgery #myjourney #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsupport #positivevibesonly #fitfam #weightlosssupport #gastricsleeve #losingweight #weightlossinspiration #sleever #weightlosssupport #sleeved #vsginstacrew #WLSjourney #vsgfam #transform #healthjourney #extremeweightloss #bariatric #lifeafterwls
So I snuck this pic of my husband @fatb00oy a few months ago at the beginning of summer, knowing that I’d have the opportunity to do a side-by-side comparison in the future. I just had no idea how quickly the “future” would come! Although I can barely wrap my brain around his changes, I can now wrap my arms all the way around him and then some. #mindblowing #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #verticlesleeve #vsgmen #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgsurgery #healthandfitness
One more week till I hit the big 100 lost!!! So very excited. Went to the state fair and and walked around for hours and I felt great. @billie_kay21 kept having to tell me to slow down cause she couldn't keep up with me!!! I'm feeling so good in my new body. #vsgjourney #vsg #verticlesleeve #vsgcommunity #weightlossjourney #weightloss #gettinglessfat #wls #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsurgery #sleevegastrectomy #vsgbros #vsgfamily #vsgmen #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #vsginstacrew
Today makes 4 months for me! YA GIRLL IS IN A SIZE 18 y’all!!! I used to be a perfect size 26 and squeeze into a size 24! Just 4 months ago!! CRAZY!!! I had to try on 3 different pair of jeans just to make sure It wasn’t because they were a stretchy pair......fat girl brain at it again🤦🏾‍♀️ I feel good y’all! Still have some mornings with nausea but not often. The burping is the only thing that annoys me😂 Currently 👇🏽69lbs, only a 9lb loss this month but I think it may be because I’ve eaten more bread. I will eliminate that the month of September and see if I get better results. I did start working out in August, goal for September is to be more consistent 👍🏽 #babysteps 🎉HAPPY SURGIVERSARY🎉. #vsg #vsglife #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #wls #wlsstrong #wlstories #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #verticlesleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy

*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! #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #wlscommunity #weightlosstransformation #verticlesleeve #weightlossjourney #weightloss
A little non-scale victory for you this morning. I got a text message last night from my boss saying to wear an LSU shirt to work today. I don’t have an LSU shirt, so I was a little annoyed. Then I remembered I packed an LSU t-shirt away in my “one day I’ll fit you” box. So I decided to try it on, and it fits! I haven’t worn this shirt in two years. Pretty excited 😊 #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #verticlesleeve #nonscalevictory #nonscalevictories #NSV #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #diet #weightlossmotivation #motivation #newchapter #LSU #batonrouge
Working on these legs of mine. I love watching my body transform. The gym has become an addiction of mine. 5 months ago I’d be making every excuse in the book to get out of working out. . . . . . . . . #vsg #vsg2018 #vsgfamily #bariatricbabes #bariatricsurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #vsgjourney #verticlesleeve #verticlesleevegastrectomy #vsginstacrew #vsgsurgery #wlsfam #vsgfam #vsgpostop #vsglife #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney
