Started this Sunday off right at church. 💕 • It’s been a while since we’ve been. I grew up in church and I absolutely love going. • Since coming out, I’ve had insecurities about going. I’ve been too worried about how we’ll be viewed. I know it sounds silly to y’all, but for LGBTQ people, it’s hard to step foot in a church when you don’t know how they’ll react. Especially when you’re an openly gay Christian. • I’ve prayed and I’ve prayed and I’ve prayed to feel comfortable in church and I’m finally to that point. I don’t go to church for the people, I go to church to learn about Jesus and to get closer to Him. I’m unapologetic in my love for Christ and I won’t let the enemy tell me lies about deserving God’s love. ☺️ • • • #vsg #verticalsleeve #vsgsupport #vsginstagram #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleeve #sleeved #rny #rouxeny #gastricbypass #gastricsleeve #wls #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricbabes #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #gastricsleevelife #vsginstacrew #vsginstafam #vsglife #postop #lifeafterwls #health

Worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY. I got so used to being exhausted and achy ALL of the time... Feeling so much more like my old self these days! 1/4 of the way to my goal! 😁 #vsg #vsgwomen #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgeats #vsglife #wls #wlsjourney #wlseats #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricbabes #sleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve
Selfie Sunday!!... Isn’t it amazing what a little bit of makeup can accomplish!? I’m diggin the way my face is starting to look again... I have a real chin and real cheek bones again... 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 And my eyes aren’t sunken into my fat cheeks 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #vsgjourney #selfiesunday #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #vsglife #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity
I should start off by saying I HATE wearing jeans. It always caused the inevitable muffin top. Went to burlington and out of curiosity tried on a size 20, they were falling off of me! I know the pic isn’t the greatest, but believe me they were huge. Even tried an 18, still they were too big! I didn’t have the patience to go get a 16 but definitely trying it on last time. But I haven’t been a 16 since high school, so I would be pleasantly surprised😭 • • • • • #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #weightloss #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsginstagram #vsglife #postopvsg #vsgbabe #vsggirl #wls #wlscommunity #wlsstrong #wlspromo #wlscrew #wlsinstacrew #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #gymmotivation #verticalsleeve #surgery #surgerypostop

January 2018 I had to ask for a seatbelt extender, May 2018 I just managed to fasten my belt (at the time thinking Thank fook) Sept 2018 I had room to spare!!! What a rollercoaster of emotions, from starting the year feeling the worst I have ever felt to now feeling fantastic & the best I’ve felt in years! #nsv #noseatbeltextenderneeded #vsg #vsgfamily #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgphotojourneychallenge #vsglife #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #gastricsleever #gastricsurgery #gastricsleeveuk #gastricsleevelife #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #weightloss #weightdiary #weightlossuk #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #wls #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlscommunity #wlssurgery #liasstory

Today Marks two months since I’ve had my surgery. And i have lost a total of 40 pounds! 😭 I’m at 233 pounds, went down to a size 12 from a size 18, and I’m now using sizes M-L in shirts when i used to be a 2XL 😭 I’m so Happy with my decision! #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsglifestyle #vsggirl #vsgjourney #vsglife #40poundsdown #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlssupport
Look who’s actually shopping like they’re going to eat healthy 💁🏻‍♀️ Today is the first day in over a month that I have felt mentally well enough to rededicate myself. Life has been nuts these past couple weeks. And I finally feel better. I finally set a new goal and actually feel like I can attain it. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. It’s liberating. So I apologize for going MIA for a minute. But ya girl is back, I just needed to relight the fire under my ass 🖤🖤 .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #weightlossjourney #weightlossjournal #vsgbabe #vsginstacrew #vsg #vsgeats #weightlossmotivation #gastricsleeve #bariatric #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsupport #vsgfam #vsgprogress #bariatricsurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #lowcarb #fuckingbelieveinyourself
Sorry for my belated posts. I wanted to make this a very frequently updated page but I fell into a bit of a depression. I’ve been doing really well and I’m down 3 more kilos since my past post in a handful of days, but no matter how the outside of you changes, you’ll still always be the same person inside, fighting all the same battles you were before. I feel really alone right now although everyone around me has been so supportive and kind. I feel unworthy of it all. Thank you for listening, hopefully I’ll come back fighting some more. . . . #wls #vsg #mentalhealth #vsglife #noteasybutworthit #noteasy #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsfamily #vsgfamily
This is one of my sisters, Alex. I don’t think I have any full length photos of us together as adults. It’s really sad when I think about it - so many memories not captured because I was bothered about how I looked. It’s a liberating feeling to handover my phone to someone else and ask them to take a photo, and not just a head shot! Can’t wait to fit in all Alex’s clothes too ☺️ hehe love ya dudey @mrs_w15 #sistersquad #sisters #fulllength #vsg #vsguk #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsglife #gastricsleeve #gastricsurgery #gastricsleeveuk #gastricsleever #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #weightloss #weightlossdiary #weightlossuk #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #wls #wlsuk #wlscommunity #wlsstory #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity
Accountability post. Almost 3 months post op! I would say I’m on the slow and steady track averaging a little over 2lbs a week. I’ll gladly take any downward movement. I have my 3 month post op appointment and labs next week. . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsglife #vsginstacrew
@losing.inches.gaining.time - Throwback Thursday, ONEDERLAND EDITION! As of this morning I am at my lowest weight of 199.8 I am crying and screaming with joy - #regrann
Big Ole' grin! I broke my stall... Obviously not the right way.. But since being sick since Tuesday I've lost 7.5lbs... Like I said not the right way.. But it moved the scale for the first time in 3 months. Let's see what happens when I can actually start eating & keep it down. #stallsaretheworst #vsg #vsglife #vsgeats #stomachissues #wls #wlsstalls #wlscommunity #scalewasntmyfriend #goalsongoals #goaldigger #motivateeachother #motivation #healthyeats
Thank you @thechicandsavvybelle for sharing your story! “I can’t believe I’m showing this 😬🙈 300+lbs vs 214 😩😱 Yes, my stomach has gone down A LOT, but this is the not so pretty side of finally losing weight after years of abusing your body!!! I’ll never have washboard abs and I’m okay with that. What I will have is a much longer healthier life span to enjoy with my family! Choose your battles wisely ❤️❤️❤️” #wlstransformation
We have finally entered into the 200’s! 😭 My body has been stalled between 300-306 for like 3 weeks, it was so frustrating. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I realized that for me, that’s what happens. My body stalls and then all of a sudden ‘I’ll step on the scale and I’ll be down between 4 and 6 lbs. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Ive been eating between 800-1,000 calories per day and getting between 70g and 100g of protein per day. As far as carbs, since I can’t really eat too much anyway I haven’t been worrying about it but I know I’ve been staying under 80 carbs per day. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here’s to the 200’s, being that much closer to my goal AND TO NEVERRRRRRRR seeing 300 on the scale EVER AGAIN!!!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #vsg #weightloss #45lbsgone #weightlosssurgery #wls #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsglife #verticalsleevelife #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsgpostop #losingthefat #lostingthelbs #weight #curvy #200club ⁣⁣
My new normal Sunday breakfast . . . 1oz of deer sausage & 1 scrambled egg. Approximately 2oz of food (229C;12F;28P;0C). . Completely satisfying and not over filling. Just the right amount of nutrients for my new tummy. ______________________________________________________ #vsglife #vsgeats #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #vsgsurgery #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #wlsfood #wlseats #wlsstrong #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #sleeved #ilovemysleeve #weightlosssupport #bariatricfood #beforeandafter

Just curious how many others out there have a crazy caffeine sensitivity? I went to Starbucks on Friday and ordered my usual sugar free, decaf coffee. They must have mixed it up with caffinated because man oh man did it mess me up. I went back to work and I was shaking all over, I felt like I was going to pass out, I couldn't hardly type or read or hold anything. I was a mess. I thought I was going to have to call somebody to get me. Not to mention the crazy amount of anxiety I got. I haven't had caffeine for probably close to a year (other than the very little bit chocolate and green tea contain) I foreal thought I was dying. Does this happen to anyone else? I have tried my best to avoid caffeine for about 5 years now because it increases my anxiety, but it's never quite effected me to this extent. #caffine #caffinesensitivity #starbucks #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsglife #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleeve #sleevedlife #sleevedsisters #sleevesisters #sleevegastrectomy #pinkdrink #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #weightlossjourney #weightloss #vsgeats #fall #weightlosssurgery
Early #sundayfunday flight to Seattle, WA for work.
Just a little something I like to call my workout halo 😇 #sweatyselfie #workout #vsglife #progressnotperfection
One of my fears used to be going to the movies and being too big to fit comfortably in my seat. I HATE when I take up more room and intrude on others space, especially in a busy theater. . We went to see A Simple Favor last night (great movie by the way!) and I was ultra comfortable and didn't even think twice about if I would spill over into the seat next to me. Oh and of course I brought my own snack, a bottle of water and Quest protein chips! . . It is really the small things that make such a huge difference on this journey. 😊 #NSV . . . #goals #vsglife #sleevedlife #vsgjourney #vsg #wls #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #vsgsupport #weightlossjourney #weightlossstory #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsleeve #vsgfamily #wlssupport #teamlosing #fitlife #transformation

Some interesting results from this photo challenge courtesy of @thebellevsg My weight gain came on gradually and late in life. 2011 wasn’t my smallest nor was 2015 my highest by a long shot! But to see that I’m smaller now than in both less than a month out from surgery....it’s very motivating especially since I’ve hit that 3-4 week stall that usually happens. I know my body is healing but it’s still stupid lmao. #sheddingthedoubts
Breakfast today for my family. Eggs with cheese, sausage patties and cheesey potatoes for Hubby and daughter. It was my first egg since surgery😍🥚🎉 It was so good but I think next time I should eat just an egg. #vsgsurgery #vsg #vsgfood #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsgdiet #vsglife #vsgmeals #vsgliving #vsgcommunity
My over ambitious breakfast 🤷🏻‍♀️what was I thinking? I will not do this again bc leaving so much over after I’m satisfied makes me sad. And I don’t like that emotion so moving forward, NO MORE BIG BREAKFAST! Or portions! Side note- it was delicious 😋 I’ll be 6 weeks post op tomorrow...
this is a very vulnerable post!! did some journaling tonight about this VSG experience and came to the realisation that this weight loss is not just helping my body. I sacrificed singing in front of people because of the way I looked and my insecurity around my appearance. I am learning that while my worth was never actually dependent on my weight, it created huge problems in my ability to present my authentic self and do all the things I loved the most. Every day I’m more able to let go of those insecurities and allow myself to do the things that make me happiest. #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #sleevegastrectomy #vsgaustralia #vsgjourney #vsg #vsglife #vsgsisters #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #losingweight #bariatricbabes #bariatricsleeve #vsgcommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgbeforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #losing #vsgrecovery #nsv #nonscalevictory
Buenos díasssss!! Hoy domingo me desperte con toda la energía del mundo y me dispongo a tomar mi desayuno para ir a entrenar 💪💪💪 para mi cuerpo no hay nada mejor que comer papaya en ayunas es maravilloso para mi estomago, lo protege de la gastritis y me ha ayudado mucho con la digestión debido a que cuando uno se somete a un sleeve o manga puede sufrir de estreñimiento y lo he tenido!!! 😣 pero bueno ésta opción me ha servido muchisimo 😁 #mividabariatrica #vidabariatrica #comiendosano #eatclean #nuevavida #nuevocuerpo #fitnesslifestyle #fitnesslife #fitgirl #sleevegastrico #gastricsleeve #mangagastrica #cirugiabariatrica #bariatricsurgery #bariatriclife #sinobesidad #papaya #domingo #vsg #vsgdiary #vsglife #nuevavida #nuevoestilodevida ##weightloss #looseweight #perdipeso #adelgazar
Day 23 - Back to Basics: VITAMINS I am so thankful that I finally found a way for me to take my multivitamins that doesn't make me sick. My @gettespo vitamins have really done the trick and now that they made their bariatric formula better tasting I will definitely be a customer for life! (Shout out to my biotin, calcium and vitamin D supplements not pictured... those three keep my hair growing, bones strong, and my energy levels up!) #wlsphotochallenge #bariatrix #bariatrixfl #bariatricfam #vsg #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsginstafam #vsgfam #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlscommunity #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #sleeved #sleevedlife #bariatrics #bariatricbabes #bariatriccommunity #wlsjourney #sleevegastrectomy #goaldigger #wlsinstacrew
Day 21 (a little late again!) - Back to Basics: PROTEIN These two items are nearly a daily staple for me now to help with getting in my protein. I still have a protein shake a day, which covers between 20 and 30 grams of my protein, but the cottage cheese is an easy way to help increase that number. It's so versatile... savory or sweet depending on what you pair with it! #wlsphotochallenge #bariatrix #bariatrixfl #bariatricfam #vsg #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsginstafam #vsgfam #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlscommunity #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #sleeved #sleevedlife #bariatrics #bariatricbabes #bariatriccommunity #wlsjourney #sleevegastrectomy #goaldigger #wlsinstacrew
