Sometimes it's just the simple things, like catching a beautiful sunrise, that remind us how wonderful this journey is. Every day is a new day with new opportunities. Don't waste it. . . . #sunrise #nofilter #newday #tinytummy #vsgtorny #revisiontorny #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
#truthfultuesday I was sleeved on 5/21/18. No complications, healed quickly and did really well following the nutritional guidelines provided to me. Yet, in the last 2-3 weeks I'm noticing my old binging habits creeping in - enough to make me take notice. The sad thing is that I dont even have to binge on pizza, donuts, candy, etc. I could be eating nuts, pork rinds, celery with PB, enlightened ice cream. Granted some things I can't eat much of anyway because of the sleeve. But it is more than I should be eating and its troubling and it needs to be addressed. So last week I had made my mind up about starting counseling. By Thursday - I still had not made a call. My angels and guides must be determined to help me get my head straight because on Thursday evening I get a "random" call from the Bariatric Counseling Center regarding their outpatient program and my surgeon had recommended they contact me. I start on Thursday night! I am excited about the possibilities and hopeful to learn new ways to cope and maybe even figure out what triggers me to begin with. I totally think PMS (hormones) is a big factor. The surgery can only do so much. The real work is in my head. I knew it would be a struggle, I just didn't expect it to be this soon. Luckily, I was told my insurance would cover it 100%. I can get the help I need without worrying about whether or not I can afford it.
"I'm feeling skinny, Tony." Choosing to have WLS is kinda like sending yourself to fat camp . . . Permanently. But you play every part like Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor. You're balancing being the camper, counselor, nurse, fitness instructor and chef while trying not to go full Tony Perkis and lose your shit. . . . #perkisizing #seamorebutts #heavyweights #tinytummy #vsgtorny #revisiontorny #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
Seriously though! I've been big all my life, so I have no clue. I'm sure I'll always have "fat brain" but I really hope once I get to my goal I will be more content and that diet/food/exercise/weight loss won't occupy my thoughts 127% of the time.

It's #nationaldogday and yes, I am posting this on my WLS account. Animals are so therapeutic!! Try to tell me they're not after seeing this first picture lol. Our dogs are such loveable goofballs and they brighten up the hardest of days. . . . #dogsofinstagram #tinytummy #vsgtorny #revisiontorny #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
My Momma and I April 2017. I had a nice long talk with her today about where I'm at with WLS revision and my chronic pain. She continues to be a huge supporter in my journey and life in general. Having good support makes all the difference. I hope you all have someone like my momma on your side. 💙💛💜 . . . #tinytummy #vsgtorny #revisiontorny #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
#tbt to the first diet I ever went on. I WAS 12! My parents made me do it. It's crazy to think that I've really been on this weight loss journey for 19 years. That's over 1/2 my life!! I remember losing around 30 pounds and actually being excited to go to a middle school dance. You know, the kind where the boys hang out on one side and the girls on the other, hoping that when a slow song comes on that the boy crossing the gym might be coming to ask you to dance. No one did until the end of the night and I remember thinking the only reason why was because I had lost some weight. I think that really solidified my toxic relationship with food and my weight. I can't remember a time where "I need to lose weight" hasn't been nagging me from the back of my mind. *Side Note: The podcast "Missing Richard Simmons" is really good! . . . #throwbackthursday #revisiontorny #vsgtorny #tinytummy #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
The perks of working in Agriculture. My husband's company purchases several 4-H and FFA market animals at the fair each year and then splits the meat up for their employees. Beef, Lamb, Goat & Pork. This picture isn't even 1/2 of it. Protein is life after bariatric surgery and we are so grateful for this gift. ❤🐂🐖🐑🐐🥓 . . . #tinytummy #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #revisiontorny
I had my 6 month post-op app this week. Down 38 pounds since surgery. Things are not at all what I expected from VSG. I'm struggling with VERY little restriction and being able to eat all foods. I have been stagnant these last 2 months since my Endometriosis surgery. I had some complications with that and have yet to get back into a good activity routine. After surgery I started a hormone therapy program that put me up 12 lbs in a week! I'm still trying to get back to where I was before. I have not been giving it 100% so I will not say I have plateaued. However, I have given 100% in putting the blame on myself and that has been exhausting and depressing. Discussed ALL of this with my surgeon and am now starting the 6 month revision program to gastric bypass and will be seeing an internal medicine weight loss specialist. If I had been diagnosed with Endo before my surgery then he would have opted for GB. I had no idea how much the endocrine disorders I have (PCOS, ENDO & Diabetes) play a part in hunger and fullness. He said that VSG just isn't enough to combat all of the imbalances that I am dealing with. It was good to hear that I didn't fuck this up but I still do take responsibility for not trying as hard lately. I'm sharing this to be transparent and to hopefully help others that are also an exception to the rule. PLEASE! If you are going through something similar, reach out! To me. To your surgeon. To your dietician. I felt so alone and isolated because this isn't at all how it's supposed to be. I should have sooner. I stopped coming on IG because I felt that I had nothing to offer this community anymore. I know I'm not alone now and I'm looking forward to continuing to share my journey. #vsgtorny #revisiontorny #tinytummy #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
One month down! Here are my stats. It's not as much as other people have lost after surgery - but I'm losing - so I am happy. The Lost All Time weight is based on where I was at last August. My highest weight ever. And thankfully I was not there for too long. So my actual weight lost right before surgery was 15 lbs. Most of which was lost during the 4ish weeks I did 2 meal replacement shakes per day. The ride hasn't been easy and hell I even started logging my meals. I hate logging my meals... and keeping track of macros. But it's part of the process. I gotta know what I'm doing to quickly assess if I need to correct myself and how to address it. #vsgpostop #1monthdown #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgprogress #vsginfo #wlspostop #wlssupport #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlssisters #wlsinfo #wlsprogress #baritastic 🎉🎊🎉
A little bit of information I gathered for those that are curious as to the type of surgery I had last month. There's tons of information out there including vlogs made by people who've had this surgery done. Not to mention all the other bariatric options available. I'm nearly a month post-op and it certainly isn't easy. The whole food addiction/emotional/mind fuck part is still there. For some it'll be worse than others. And, I still have to do my part by eating right. But I've got a 'tool' now that's guaranteed to help as long as I stay the course. Its a restart, not a continuation of my story. Feel free to dm me with any questions you have. #vsg #vsginfo #vsgjourney #wlsjourney #wlsinfo ##wlssupport #bariatric #sleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #doyouboo #itsatool #itsawayoflife #itsnoteasy #butitsworthit #liveyourbestlife #7deadlysins
Here's a #tbt of the last time I wore shorts out of the house and even then it was rare. This is at least 7 years ago. Looking forward to wearing some this summer! . . . #tinytummy #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
March vs May. #transformationtuesday is tough. I've looked at this comparison and debated about posting it all morning. One minute it looks the exact same and the next it looks like I'm smaller.

Turkey Chili is always my #1 choice for lunch but this is my #2 . Meat, cheese and pickles. So simple and so good! This plate is 5oz and I will eat it all over about 40 minutes at 4 months post-op. . . . #lunch #proteinislife #vsgeats #tinytummy #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery

Yesterday I had surgery for confirmation and excision of endometriosis, after 10+ years of symptoms and doctoring. While I was in recovery the nurse explained that my doctor was able to remove some endometrial lesions but that I need to be seen in her office for a consult. So of course my mind is completely uneasy and restless about what she has to say. I don't usually share this kind of stuff too much but this community is so amazing and this is part of my journey. Please keep me in your thoughts, prayers, whatever floats your boat. I hate the unknown and am just trying to keep my shit together and stay on track. ✌💛 . . . #endo #endometriosis #tinytummy #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
Grilled Chicken Pizza on 2 Ingredient Dough tonight. So good!

Good Morning instafam! I'm usually a tea drinker but I neeeeeeded some extra caffeine this morning. Small Keto Americano at Dutch Brothers to the rescue! 120 calories, 10g fat, 0 protein, 1 carb. The carb is from adding splenda. Hope you all have a great day!!! . . . #tinytummy #gettinghealthy #vsginfo #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #wls #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #type2 #diabetes #diabetic #lowcarb #fitsisters #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoswarrior #gettingfit #vsgbabes #fat2fit #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsurgery
