Finishing work at 8pm most nights means my dinners are usually something quick and easy! I picked up some beef & pork meatballs from @countdown_nz yesterday and made a pesto and cream sauce to go with them and paired it with courgette noodles and cherry tomatoes. SO yum and quick! I canโ€™t believe I used to use finishing at 8pm as an excuse to eat takeaways almost every night when it took me 15 minutes to make this #keto #ketodiet #ketogenicdiet #weightlossjourney #wls #ketorecipes #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #weightlossmotivation #weightloss #aucklandweightloss #aucklandwls #aucklandvsg #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity
Lost around 4lbs in two weeks . Kinda not bothering with the scales as I was getting obsessed which was messing with my head . Had interesting results after last week which I am going to post about later. . . #weightloss #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #sleevesurgery #ukbariactricsurgery #nottheeasyoption #wls #wlsnhs #wlsuk #vsgintsacrew #vsgjourneyoninstagram #verticalsleeve #wlsinstacrew #weightlosssurgery #wlsjourney #extremeweightloss #wlscommunity #bopo #bodypositive #progressnotperfection #weightlosstransformation
Week 89 post-VSG, my moving average is (-2.6) pounds! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป How did I eat? I mostly stuck to a lower carb (high fiber) high fat diet. ๐Ÿคฉ My protein intake ticked up because I began to reintroduce more fish and chicken to my diet. 20% carb 50% fat 30% prot. Caveat: None! 20% carb average even with cheat meals. Did I work out? Again. Naw. ๐Ÿ˜… Um, ok. Did I... move? Sure! 9,200 steps/day average. Two days were barely above 5K. Goals: 0 days below 7,000 steps! . . . . . #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgeats #vsglife #vsgjourney #vsgbros #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wls #wlseats #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #sleevegastrectomy #transformationtuesday #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlossgoals #gastricsleevesurgery #bodypositive #extremeweightloss #beforeandafter #ketosis #keto #ketogenic #ketodiet #lchf #intermittentfasting
"only you have the power to change your life." I find these words to be so true. If I had not made the choice to get healthier then I would still be the girl in the picture above. I'm glad I made the choice to not sit around anymore, I chose to move! Change my way of eating, exercising and how I see the world around me. I'm not going to lie, it has not been easy and life has certainly thrown me some very hard loops but I have kept moving through it all! I will keep moving through it! . . . #wls #wljourney #vsgjourney #vsg #feelinggood #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #nonscalevictories #iddoitagain #gettinghealthy #surprisingmyself #hardworkpaysoff #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #fuckfat #fightingfat #iwillkeepgoing #ihavethepowertochange #changingmylife

As Iโ€™m such a clutz I shouldnโ€™t be so surprised I managed to pull a muscle in my back by bending over on Friday ๐Ÿ˜‚... yes itโ€™s agony btw #bariatricsurgery #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #bariatricbabes #wls #wlscommunity #pulledmuscle #pinkhairdontcare
When I decided to document my journey, I was looking through pictures to add. Iโ€™ve realized that Iโ€™ve hid from pictures for years! I have very few pictures with my boys, and thatโ€™s heartbreaking! Iโ€™m ready to stop hiding and change my life! #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vgs #verticalsleeve #wls #sleeved #bariatricsurgery #weightloss #gastricsleeve #weightlosssurgery #gastricsleevejourney #vsginstacrew #vsgpostop #vsgfam #vsgbabes #bariatricbabes

February-October. 34.5kg difference between these two pictures. Both of these pictures are very real as I didnโ€™t know either of them were being taken. I showed the Mr this and pointed out that I still looked โ€œgrossโ€ and didnโ€™t like this and that etc and he said to me โ€œinstead of picking out all the negatives why arenโ€™t you focusing on the amazing difference between themโ€ and you know what heโ€™s so right! We need to stop being so hard on ourselves and celebrate our achievements! Remember to speak kindly to yourself ๐Ÿ’– โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #pcoswarrior #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wlsfood #wlseats #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlseats #wlsbeforeandafter #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #happy #goals #positivetalk #bekind
Tonight im really struggling. Im on day 12 of my 14 day pre-op liquid diet. I'm proud of myself because ive not cheated once. My surgery is Thursday and I just keep telling myself to push through. I'm at the hospital tonight working 3rd shift and the struggle is real. I can't sleep at all so im exhausted. I feel just super weak and drained. My whole body hurts and my heart is just racing. I'm sure part of this is nerves and lack of sleep. At this point i'm forcing myself to get all my protien shakes in and water for the day. I'm so grateful that my surgery is near and I really am happy!! I'm just wondering if anyone else felt like this on the pre-op liquid diet right before surgery. I'd take any tips or tricks to get me to relax, i cant seem to shut off my mind. I want to use this to open and honest about my journey and today im just struggling. I just have to make it through this shift! On the bright aide im down 17lbs since bein on the liquid diet!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #vsgsleeve #vsgweightloss #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlslife #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #weightlossjourney #livershrinkingdiet #preopvsg
My surgery is officially 2 weeks away and I am super nervous/excited! I have my nutrition class and pre-op on Wednesday and then my liquid diet starts next Monday!๐Ÿ˜ฌ #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery
@Regran_ed from @transforming_noelle - I get a lot of questions on how I transformed my mental health. With my physical health, I felt Unstoppable and wanted to challenge my body daily! Mentally, I struggled. I ended up in a really dark place and had to pull myself out! Here are a few things that will help you transform your mental health. Value yourself by treating yourself with kindness. Taking care of yourself phsycailly will improve your mental health. Surrounding yourself with positive people that lift you up rather than tear you down. Volunteer your time to help someone else in need. Learn how to deal with stress by using coping skills. Quiet your mind through meditation. Set realistic goals for yourself. Break up your routine, a little change of pace can perk up a crazy schedule. Most importantly seeking help is a sign of strength. With my weekly therapy sessions where I'm able to focus solely on Noelle has brought me to where I'm at today. I'm in the best physical shape of my adult life and the happiest I've ever been! Please remember that self care means giving the world the best of you instead of what is left of you! - #regrann
Even though my team lost today (Iโ€™m never going to hear the end of it from my uncles) BUT! NSV moment because the jersey fits me different. This jersey is a Mens Small, and it still fit me tight before. Even though it looks like a good fit in these photos, Itโ€™s time for a new one ! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #weightlossbeforeandafter #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourneys #vsgbeforeandafter #vsginstacrew #vsgsurgery #vsglife #vsgsupport #vsglifestyle #vsgtransformation #vsgcrew #teamlosing #losingweight #losingweightfeelinggreat #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevebeforeandafter #gastricsleevelife #arischallenge

I came in last place and took well over an hour to complete... today was a very different story I finished 209 of 500+ ladies and finished in 39:50!!!! I am so proud of myself!!! #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #transparentlychristal #girlswhorun #goaldigger #healthylifestyle #healthychanges
1.5 oz Sirloin steak slow cooked in beef broth with onions, 2T homemade mashed potatoes, & 1 T steamed green beans. This is the first meal since surgery that actually resembles a meal. May have over eaten though. #vsgeats #wlsfood #vsgjourney #eats #tinyportions #vsg #wls #sleevedlife #dryhands
This was my breakfast, morning tea, and lunch today ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ the joys of having a teeny tummy. This was chicken, salad, and rice. I didnโ€™t really eat any of the rice in the 3 sittings I picked at it.

Today was a day that has shown me how far I have come. The first major non scale victory starts with these ramps. I would have to stop and take breaks going up these usually. Today in charged up them and it didn't even phase me. Then when I got to my seat I actually had room to sit comfortably. It was an amazing day even before the amazing game!

Motivational Monday.... or more of a realisation. A lot of people say that getting this sleeve done isnโ€™t the easy way out and yes mentally itโ€™s not... but to be truthful it can be easy if you let it, you can eat whatever you want in some peopleโ€™s cases and mine is one of those... I donโ€™t have any intolerances, I can eat every food group comfortably. What is hard is making sure you do eat well and sticking to it. Making sure your drinking your water even if it is uncomfortable. Meal prepping and being food organised isnโ€™t coming naturally to me and I need to work at it now before itโ€™s too late and I waste this fantastic opportunity that Iโ€™ve been given!! . . . #motivationalquotes #motivationmonday #realisations #mealprep #gettinghealthy #healthy #healthyfood #healthyeating #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #gastricsleeve #fattofitjourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #wlscommunity #wls
Iโ€™m sitting here looking through photos on my Facebook and I came across this one on the left. I look at this picture and have no idea who that girl is, I donโ€™t even remember looking that way. What I do remember is how I felt, we were visiting family in Nebraska and were at the Omaha zoo. We had just got on the train and I was so happy that we were sitting. I was completely exhausted, hot and so miserable and not even that smile could hide how miserable I really was. I look at the picture on the left and I see a strong woman, the strongest version of myself that Iโ€™ve ever been and in that picture I really was as happy as I look. I hopped up on that wall like it was nothing and I sat there feeling so proud of how I felt and looked. I smile when I look at that picture on the right, Iโ€™ve come so damn far! Words canโ€™t describe how I feel when I look at this comparison, Iโ€™m literally a different person! This beautiful journey Iโ€™m on is far from over, I made a new goal tonight and Iโ€™m so excited to get working towards it!! #beforeandduring #myweightlossjourney #fitfam #wlssavedmylife #illneverstopfighting #weightlosstransformation #sidebysidetransformation #vsgtransformation #mybeautifuljourney #vsgjourney #wlsjourney

When hair wash day and laundry day end up on the same day my daughter and husband have pink eye. I feel like I'm drowning here.

A little Sunday reflection. The photos were taken almost a year apart. Can you tell which one Iโ€™m happier in? How about the one where Iโ€™m healthier in? Curious to read your responses. There is about a 20 pound difference between the pictures.

My weight isnโ€™t the only thing that has changed since surgery and isnโ€™t the only thing that counts. I canโ€™t even begin to explain how much weight loss surgery not only saved my life (literally) but has changed my life for the better in more ways that I ever imagined. Today I ran for 10 minutes in one go! I was even able to run an extra 5 minutes again at the end! I have NEVER been able to do this the most I have ever ran in one go was 5 minutes and I struggled so Ive usually just stuck to small walk/run intervals. One of my big goals is to be able to run a 5k and I feel like after today this is something Iโ€™ll actually be able to achieve! Iโ€™m so incredibly proud of myself and everything I have achieved and itโ€™s incredible how much my fitness has improved and what our bodies are capable of. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #weightlosssurgery #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #fitness

I know I need to post more! Iโ€™m still here! Still #strong #strongbyzumba and still trying to reach goal! The most important thing is that I keep trucking and never lose sight. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgfitness #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney
First post! I officially have a surgery date for VSG, it will be October 29th! I have a lot of emotions about it but Iโ€™m super excited to get started on this journey. I know that itโ€™s not going to be easy at all but itโ€™s going to be so worth it in the end. Iโ€™m just glad that all the different tests are over and that Iโ€™m thankfully approved to have it. To be approved for surgery, I had to have cardiac testing, a sleep evaluation, clearance from my primary doctor, a psychological evaluation, and I had to have several scheduled calls with different people from my insurance company. So, hereโ€™s to counting down the days and getting ready for my pre-op liquid diet! #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery
