This dumb expression happens:
-When you don’t hate bathing suit shopping. -when the plus size ones were too big (xl for the win!)
-when you shamelessly text 5 people asking for opinions and only one was your husband -when you wear a one piece and not a skirt or short bottom for the first time since elementary school

Ok y’all this week is soft foods week woohoo! I had tuna salad, Cheerios (on approved list) and a ricotta bake this weekend already; all delicious.
Tonight I made stuffed mushrooms (cooked in the air-fryer)with imitation crab meat and a small amount of cheese on top, mashed potatoes and deviled eggs. Side note, this is a small salad/dessert plate in these pictures.
This is all I could manage to eat with the addition of one whole (2 halves) deviled egg. I know I am SUPER limited on the amount of food I can eat but WTF; I couldn’t even touch the potatoes for real.
I mean I guess that’s good but this measurement is 1/2 cup (two 1/4 cups cause my 1/2 cup was MIA lol!) of potatoes so how in the hell am I to track what I actually ate? The egg and mushroom I just tracked as a whole item but the potatoes....I can’t even lol! I’m tryin to get better at tracking my food, but I honestly don’t know what I will be able to eat when the time comes you feel me? Not yet anyways 😔
I saw this phrase recently and I couldn’t agree more. Putting yourself in that position is not a bad thing. It’s not selfish to want the best for yourself. It’s not selfish to recognize when you’re not being valued the way you should. For me, getting this surgery was finally the way I made myself a priority.
Update: Officially down 100lbs 🕺🏻
I haven’t sweat this much in a long time!!! Anyone else notice how much harder your normal distance seems to be when you change up the route?! Walked in my neighborhood tonight instead of at Trashmore and took a totally new route. And it kicked my butt!! But I loved every minute of it! The introvert in me loves the serenity of my neighborhood. Knocked out 3.2 miles in 50 minutes which frankly is pure trash 🤣😭😅 especially given my 5k is in less than 2 weeks. This past weekend put me back some in my progress, so I’ve got some ground to make up!
Ya... I’m the random solo traveler asking people to take picture... regardless idgaf!!! The man that took my pic was making fun and telling me to smile. He said I was radiating happiness!!! Little does he know- I truly am!!!! Never would I think I’d go on vacation and make sure to plan my workouts. I biked 30+ miles today!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t get over that - it’s simply amazing 🚴🏾♀️🚴🏾♀️🚴🏾♀️ #lifeisbeautiful

So I did 7hours of fasting. From today. I didn’t count from my last meal from yesterday, it would be more.
I did pretty well, I got reall hungry when some friends were eating donuts, so I went to my car and waited til they were done. #vsgcommunity #vsgfasting #fasting #vsgcommunity
Still can't believe this is my body now 😍 excited to work on it even more 💪🏻I was so unhappy in the first pic
Now -19kg down 🎉🎉
“Examine me, O Lord, and try me; test my mind and my heart” – Psalm 26:2
I am currently reading through this study with my community group and it’s amazing! We are in week one and Priscilla is starting us off right with the discussion of obedience. It’s so amazing and so convicting.
As part of the study I began to analyze how I am or am not obeying what God is calling for me. So this past week I got to dive into this study and kick off my liquid diet. This weekend was my first few days of the diet and I was also out of town (which was good and bad). Being out of town got me out of my own space, so I couldn’t sit alone and potentially allow myself to fall into the temptation of food. It also forced me to be intentional with my meals, and pack and plan everything I would “eat” over the weekend. But, it ultimately put me in the uncomfortable position to be surrounded by other people eating. In those moments, every morsel of food looked delicious and I was super annoyed. BUT, I got over it. Afterwards I felt accomplished and I thought “hey, I can do this”.
God paved this way for me to radically change my life and my health. And I must be obedient and follow this path he has created for me. .
“When we refuse to follow God’s direction, it’s usually because we’re convinced that whatever He’s asking us to give up is greater than what we’ll gain.” – Priscilla Shirer
Grabbed lunch with my mama in between a busy day of errands... she was born in Sri Lanka so southeast Asian food makes us happy. Shared with her, ate the spinach and the chickpeas and the yogurt. She got down on the rice & bread 😹
Sooo good 🤤
Dinner salmon and butternut squash noodles with cream cheese a wedge of laughing cow cheese and salt and pepper in a 4oz container I’m full after a few bites of salmon still seems so weird to me so thankful for my tool just need to stop eating so fast #vsgpostop #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgjourney
A year ago. I love getting tagged in old photos and seeing how far I've come! I was a little over a month out from surgery. Many didn't understand why I chose VSG. I'd gotten the weight off before, why didn't I just do what I did before? Many will question then they'll see that your hard work coupled with this amazing tool was the best decision EVER! I wouldn't change a thing....except maybe doing it sooner🖤
