Lategram from yesterday when I put on this shirt for the first time winch I started my pre-op diet--and I didn't have to stretch it out! And it's a 2X (had been wearing a 3x for comfort and looseness) and a smallish one at that! Lost a total of 14.3 pounds in the 12 days of the pre-op liquid diet that I did! I'll count that as a successful start considering I couldn't ever break past 242 for months! . . . . . . #vsg #vsgpreop #nsv #itsthesmallthings #gastricsleeve #vsgcommunity #preopliquiddiet
These are my official pre-op pics ! I started at 326 and will post a weekly update ! I can’t thank Dr. Jawed enough ! My friend was amazed how quick it was when he went to tell him it was all done ! 45 minutes and a lifetime of hope given to my son and I. I picked up my son for the first time in 3 days and as soon as he saw me he busted into tears in from of his whole class. He definitely misssed me and said thank you Dr.Jawed for not hurting my mommy 😭. I cannot wait to see how positive this change will have on my life and the new exciting things waiting for me! @njbariatricsurgeons thank you so much for this !! You have given me a new chance at life and a longer life with my son!

My 4 incisions ... took a shower today and took off the clear bandages .. no pain just gas pressure ! The blood is dried not fresh ( don’t get worried ) Dr. Jawed was absolutely amazing!! @njbariatricsurgeons
Last meal, before my surgery tomorrow morning, is a bowl of beef brother. I'm so nervous but so ready for this to be done. I'm so grateful to my boyfriend, my darling friends and the few family members who are showing even a little bit of support during this first phase of my transformation. I have happy tears because of all this support, and sad tears because of the few people who aren't concerned for my health and wellbeing. I will remember this and treasure the people who cheered me on and shut out the 'haters'. #vsgcommunity #preopdiet #vsgpreop #thestruggleisreal #sonervous
My face has lost some of its roundness and I ain’t mad at it! #throwbackthursday #tbt
Exactly 7 months to the day after I started my WLS journey I got the call that my VSG was approved by insurance and my surgery would be scheduled for Nov 26th. SO EXCITED!! #vsgpreop #vsgjourney #vsg #vsgmen #vsgcommunity #wlspreop #wlscommunity #wlsmen #wlsjourney #wls #wlstransformation
I found a painted glittery puzzle piece on my walk this morning. It felt lucky so I picked it up. 2 miles and I'm beat. Home drinking my Premier Protein and coffee and relaxing a little before I clean my desk so I can start drawing again! Or maybe put laundry away... #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
Ok. I started keto 10 days ago at 282lbs. I lost fast during the first week and got down to 274lbs and I was stoked! Weighed myself the other day just to check and it was down to 271!!!!! But today when I weighed myselfor my weekly (late again) #weighinwednesday and now Im at 273.3 which is ok. It's not bad. But it's not where I wanted to be. I am on my period tho. I'm sure that's part of it. I hope so at least. I was really really hoping for 270 or lower. 😭 It's ok tho! I'm NOT letting it get me down! I'm gonna go for a walk and eat good and everything is ok! Plus! I only need to get to 265lbs for surgery and I still have a couple months to get there! #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
SWIPE- I posted the shirts earlier this week but didn’t post me wearing them (I got asked to do it because I guess they thought I was lying, so here you go, you know who you are). I also didn’t even think about the difference in my pant sizes 🤷🏽‍♀️. But here’s the proof. Two months difference. Slow and steady wins the race...even though my only opponent is myself.
Check this beauty of a #foodphoto out from @thatgasticgal : When chips and salsa can’t be a thing, pork rinds and salsa is a suitable replacement. @southernrecipesmallbatch always slays the pork rind game, you guys. These babies are Spicy Dill, Cilantro Lime and my absolute favorite, Blackberry Habanero! . . . . #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsg #vsginstacrew #keto #lowcarb #lowcalorie #Weightlosssupport #WLSsupport #VsgInstacrew #BariatricSupport #VSGofinstagram #Verticalsleeve #VsgPostop #VsgPreop #VSGBeforeandafter #BariatricBabes #Lifeaftervsg #vsgjourney #lapband #WLS #Wlstransformation #Vsglife #Weightloss #bariatriclife #Teamlosing #Fattofit
Super tasty lunch. Poached eggs and smoked salmon on a bed of tender stem broccoli and asparagus - 326kcal.

A coworker is returning to work tomorrow after having #VSGSurgery . Everyone else on our team wanted to do a potluck 👎🏾So I decided to put together a #bariatric gift basket for her #TeamWLS I consider everyone I've interacted with on this journey as family. Even when we think we have no one we always have each other. . . . . . . . . . . #VSG #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #wls #wlscommunity #vsgpostop #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #vsgpreop #weightlosssupport #weightlosssurgery #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #gastricband #lapband #vsgeats #keto #sleeved #sleevedlife
Another month down! Only 3 more months in my 6 months of supervised weight loss period!! I can’t wait for this period to be over and move on to surgery! I am trying to be patient and use this time to prepare for surgery and get my mind right. But I’m so excited to keep moving forward!! #vsgpreop #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #makingchanges
Hump day is a wrap. I did my best today and I’ll do my best tomorrow. Each day is a gift to be your best. I take it one day at a time, keep my inner dialogue going, quieting the temptations and as always, my faith in the Lord has brought me this far and in Him will bring me to goal 💖
A little overwhelming trying to pick a new water bottle and soup thermos! Any of you have favorites? • • • #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #vsgsurgery #bariatricsleeve #sleeved #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #vsgpreopdiet #wls #weightlossjourney #liquiddiet #vsgpostopdiet
#wlsphotochallenge Day 19 My Inspiration....this is my little sister @melodiousrainbo and this is her progress in just 1 year! When I saw her doing it and changinf her life and getting healthier and more active, I wanted to do it too! She motivates me constantly by texting me and giving me advice and answering my questions! She's been an amazing ally on this journey! I love you little sister! #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
Giving this a go tonight. 👍🏼#realgoodpizza @realgoodfoods It’s so small 👶🏻
It's like she's talking directly to me.... 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Holy smokes - is this real life? A week from today I’ll officially be sleeved. . . . I know this journey will require a lot of hard work, and won’t be easy, but I can’t wait to see where it takes me.
My first double espresso with my cookies and cream Premiere Protein Shake! I cut Starbucks completely out of my diet, but thanks to you all and your great ideas I found a new way to enjoy my coffee! #vsgpreop #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #makingchanges
Wanted to share an example of our new healthy lunches! This is our salmon sushi bowl. It includes: white rice, grilled salmon, nori seaweed, avocado, black sesame seeds, green onions, sea salt, black pepper, rice vinegar, fish sauce, lemon and orange juices. Very tasty! Was so filling I had to save half for later. #healthymeals #asiancuisine #sushibowls . #weightlossjourney #salmonbowl #asianfood #hashimotos #vsgpreop #healthychoices

SWIPE-...because sometimes you want your food to “feel” fancy, even when it ain’t 😂🤣
It's all up to you! You can get inspiration and guidance from others along the way but in the end, we have to rescue ourselves. Read. Go to therapy. Meditate. Exercise. Journal. Do whatever it takes to make yourself better than you were yesterday. . . . #wednesdaywisdom #selflove #rescueyourself #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
@powerfuljoerogan is one of my favorite human beings. This is so true. It doesn't mean it's easy to change after years of poor choices but you can feel the domino of effects when you're careful and concious about the fuel you feed your body. . . . #foodisfuel #changehowyoueat #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
The happy weightloss train is still chugging. I'm excited to see this as I've never lost this much weight before without drastic diets and hours a week in the gym for at least 6 months. My body composition scale even stated I lost 2% of my body fat! With my condition, it hasn't been easy to "work out" but simply getting off the couch and walking my dogs and my daughter @evey.nightmare encouraging the Japanese cooking at home has led to this triumph. #weightlossjourney #hashimotos #fattyliver #myfitnesspal #fatlossmilestone #vsgpreop #japanesefood #asiancuisine
He asked and I said....HELL YES💍 It’s been a week since this man asked me to be his wife and I’ve been so damn happy ever since! Tim is seriously the best guy ever! He has stood by my side through all my ups and downs, and puts up with my annoying ass everyday🤣He is my bestest friend, my biggest fan and the absolute love of my life! I can’t imagine going through life without him by my side that’s for sure. Here’s to 5 years of being with this guy, and a lifetime more!❤️ • • #vsg #vsg2018 #vsgpreop #preopvsg #postopvsg #vsgpostop #vsgeats #vsglife #vsgliving #vsgjourney #vsgmeals #vsgmealprep #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsginstafam #vsgfood #wls #wlspreop #preopwls #postopwls #wlspostop #wlseats #wlslife #wlsliving #wlsjournal #wlscommunity #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #bariatricsurgery
I'm still having trouble getting Medicare to approve my CPAP machine. 😭😭😭 I had my study done over a month ago! But because I used to have a CPAP 7 years ago they want to know how it's working. Well it's not because I haven't had it in over 6 years. Lost it in a move. So now instead they are requesting a whole new thing. So. Its confusing and I don't know how to explain it but I'm hopeful that I will have my CPAP soon!!!! I am SO TIRED!!!!!! I JUST WANT TO GET SOME DECENT SLEEP! #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
GUYZ!!!!!!!!!!! I usually wear a 22/24 in jeans. And they have to be stretchy! I went to try these 20s on so I could do a transition pic. Like one where I can barely pull them up, then after I lose weight, one where I can barely zip them, then one like THIS pic, and then one where they fit without being super tight and then another when they're too big! Well here I am and they are up and zipped!!! Last time I tried them they barely zipped! They are still tight and I probably won't wear them out and about yet but OMG! Im pretty stoked. Guess I gotta get some 18s to do transition pics with! #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
↬Week 3 Post-Op↫ Hey hey HEY! I'm officially 3 weeks post surgery as of Monday. I'm not sure of my weight, but the last I checked I weighed 198.0 lbs and that after not going ploop for a while. But again, I'm not focused on the scale, but I'll update you all on my next weight in whenever that happens. Fyi not my shoes, not my room nor my house, but that is my dog walking behind me. ° • • • • #preop #vsgcommunity #sleevedlife #sleeved #sleevedlife #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedup #weightlossjourney #weightloss #happy #healthylifestyle #weightlosssurgery #vsgeats #postop #vsgblog #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #bariatricsurgery #operationgetsnatched #bariatricsleeve #sleevefamily #vsglife #wlsjourney #wls #me #vsgpreop #therawandreal #therawandrealofvsg

#wlsphotochallenge Day 18 Transformation Tuesday! Well I started this journey back in May. I have gained and lost and gained and lost and I'm finally on track. There is only about 10lbs difference in these pics. And I can't see a huge change. But I do look less puffy! So there's that. I can't wait to have ones that are super obvious to post! I'm working hard to get there! #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
#wlsphotochallenge day 17 Current Struggle. Well my mood is my current struggle. My period is late. No not pregnant! I'm wondering if the keto can delay a period???? Does anyone know? Anyway so I'm just moody. I'll be super motivated one minute and then super blah the next. I know I'll get out of this slump tho. So im not dwelling on it. #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
#wlsphotochallenge Day 16 September Goals half way point...I'm definitely drinking more water! I've already lost 5lbs! But I need to follow docs orders better. I'm not eating any sugar and super low carb. No bread or anything. But I'm still taking in more calories than they wanted and I'm not exercising as often as I should. So goals for the rest of the month are 1. Lose 5 more lbs 2. Exercise at least 3x a week. 3. eat around 1600 to 1800 calories a day. #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
I'm behind on #wlsphotochallenge again! Day 15 What I wish I knew....well I'm still preop and I have no idea how to answer this yet!! But I've been doing as much research as possible so I hope there will be nothing too surprising that happens!! #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop
Day 1 of my Pre-Op Liquid Diet! Now I have actually done a 2 week liquid diet with a friend about a year ago before their surgery. So I know I can do it. But I swear this time it feels so different, because I know at the end of this is my surgery. && that brings me joy. Mind over Matter! 🤗 I’m missing a few things in the photo, premiere shakes by the case, low sodium broth, && I think that’s it. I was told to drink 4 protein shakes a day. Luckily Premier Protein Shakes actually taste pretty good. 👌🏽 I threw in some screenshots to explain why we liquid diet before surgery and an idea of what my meal plans will look like. 💕💕💜💚 #vsgfamily #vsgsurgery #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgpreopdiet #wls #vsgliquiddiet #vsgpreop #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsg #vsginstacrew
Officially met, and slightly surpassed, my surgery goal weight! 🙌🏻 Here’s to hoping I can shed a few more pounds over the next week to help aid in my recovery even further.
I have been trying new products avoiding my pure LOVE 💕 for Chocolate and found the Macadamia cookie to not be too bad for protein cookie double win!! #vsg vsg #vsgdiva #vsgbabe #vsgpreop #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #goals #macros #weightlosssurgery #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #genepro #myproteinbites
So excited!!! Had what they call my h & p final appt.. everything will be submitted to insurance in the next few days!!!!!!!!!#vsgpreop #vsgjourney #weightlossjourney
2.4 more lbs down! You already know I’ll take it!!!
Good morning! I wanted to talk about non-scale victories today. With the remnants of hurricane Florence now reaching the NYC area, I wanted to wear a comfortable pair of jeans for the rainy day instead of a dress. I have an entire closet full of clothes that didn't fit me. I've kept them in hopes of a miracle that I would somehow thin out again and get back into my clothes. I decided to pull a small pile of jeans down from the top shelf of the closet. I carefully checked labels and then tried one on. It fits!!! As well as my carseat buckle belt. The jeans are a low rise size 20, so they are sitting more on my hips than "mom jeans" being closer to my bellybutton. I'm so happy to be able to get into these! The other jeans ranged from size 14-18 so I'm looking forward to being able to get into those as well and then the day the size 14's become too big, I will cry tears of joy since I've never been below a 14 in my adult life. 😱😱😱😱😱😱😀😀😀😀😀 #smallvictory #nonscalevictory #myjeansfit #vsgpreop #hashimotos #makinggoodchoices
Smiling because after an incredibly emotional and tumultuous weekend, I’ve firmly decided to move forward with my decision to have #vsg and regain control of my life/health. . . . The road ahead won’t be easy, no weight loss journey is, but when I face challenges I’m going to keep reminding myself why I’m doing this: ▫️To avoid developing complications or other health problems such as heart disease or type-2 diabetes, both of which run in my family ▫️To break the cycle of yo-yo dieting (I’ve been on a diet since I was 13, and most of the people in my life don’t remember a time when I wasn’t trying to lose weight) ▫️To help (in combination with a lot of mental health work) break my addiction to food ▫️To do (and wear) all of the things I felt I couldn’t when I was struggling with my weight . . . September 26, I’m coming for you. 👊🏻
I checked my PO box today and look what was there waiting for meeeee! My box of bariatric goodies from @itsmyfinalcountdown thank you so so much! So much fun stuff in here!

So excited to start this read!! I really plan to take the next year and focus on me !! #weightlossjourney #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #reading
EKG & Chest X-RAY It's been a busy day! Doc says she will make my referrals and send my letter. Let's hope she does!! One of the things I'm most scared of is the endoscopy!!! I won't have one probably for a while coz it takes forever for the referrals to go thru. But I am so scared of this procedure! Like, will they sedate me? Or will I be wide awake???? I gag when I brush my teeth!
