Today was a big day! I finally got to leave the house to go somewhere other than the doctor’s office! 🙌🏻 It was just Walmart, but hot diggity this girl was excited! I bought some new kitchen essentials including the most adorable little frying pan. It’s the perfect size! And of course had to stock up on my vitamins! All of these were my rewards for being 15 pounds down since surgery 12 days ago AND less than 3 pounds away from 50 lost!! Woohoo! I also wore my Apple Watch for the first time since the morning of my surgery and look at that. That’s the furthest I’ve walked in a single sitting since surgery! And that was all just from walking around Walmart. Now I’m home and ready to go to bed. But I feel great! A much needed pick-me-up!
I made these last night for my sister and her family 😊💕. This was a creation I did for these wontons lol. It has spinach, onions, parmesan cheese, egg, honey ham and mozzarella cheese. Everyone said they were delicious!! So these were a hit and I will be doing them again. #vsg #vsggirl #vsgcommunity #vsgcommunitysupport #vsgstrong #vsggoals #vsglife #vsglifestyle #vsgliving #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #wls #wlsgirl #wlscommunity #wlscommunitysupport #wlslife #wlsstrong #wlssurgery #wlsjourney #wlsupport #vsgsupport #wlsgoals #vsggoals #thankfulforvsg #vsgmexico #wlsmexico #vsgeats #vsgfood #wlsfood #wlseats
This Saturday night reminds me of a time my good friend and I were in a bar 10 years ago, she pissed me off and I chased her outside with a pool stick all while doing karate 🤣🤣. We may have been banned right after that I don't recall. I'm super shy and don't have much to say but with the right people I can talk for hours and we will have fun guaranteed. #iifym #iifymlifestyle #vsgcommunity #keto #ketoislife #ketolifestyle #ketodiet #ketogenicdiet #ketojourney #wlscommunity #wlseats #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsgmeals #vsgstrong #vsgdiet #wlseats #wlsmeals #wlsbabes #wlsgoals #vsgbabes #vsggoals #vsgfood #wlsfoods #wlsjourney
Some comparisons of this face!!! The before pics were taken one week before surgery! (2/13/2018) and the afters are today!! (9/22/2018) 🙀 ** having vsg has been the biggest blessing in my life! I do not see it as the easy way out bc I think I am way harder on myself now! Since surgery I have set 71lbs free and with that, the 71lbs took my boobs and ass! 😂 i think the reason I have been so successful in my adventure is because I am strict on myself! There are things I simply will not eat ever again! I do not wish to go backwards & I didn’t go through surgery to do so! If someone offers me anything sweet or not in MY food category, I kindly say “no thank you”. In this adventure I have learned how to politely say “no” to things I used to say yes too! And I have learned how to say “yes” to things that used to scare me! (More like I force myself out of my out of my comfort zone!) I don’t see it as deprivation.. I see it as I used to hid food in my house and wait for my husband to go to bed and then sit up all night and eat to get rid of it! I see it as I spent weeks of not leaving my house being so ashamed of the way I looked that I went into a deep depression! My food addiction was out of control and I REFUSE to go back to that! Sorry if I’m rambling 🤦🏼‍♀️ but this is my adventure and I have never been so proud of myself!!! I say it in every post (I think)! DO NOT COMPARE YOUR ADVENTURE TO SOMEONE ELSES!!! Go at your own pace and set goals for yourself! You are your only competitor! Oh and by the way you all are sooooo beautiful!!! #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgstrong #vsgcommunity #vsgadventure #vsgsurgery #vsggirl #vsgdiet #vsgmichigan #vsginsta #vsgsleeve #vsglove #vsg2018postop #vsg2018 #vsgpostopliving #vsgcrew #vsgfamily #vsginstagram #wlscommunity #wls #wlsinstafam #wlscommunityvsg #wlsinspiration #wls2018 #toriesvsgadventure2018
Morning sweat session. 5 miles on treadmill. Walking lunges and side shuffles afterwards at an incline of 8%. Then upper body. I actually got a compliment this morning from a random gym guy. He said he’s been watching me over the years with my transformation and said I was one of the hardest females working out in the gym. That I always give it 100%. It made me feel really good. Made my morning actually!! I guess my ugly lifting faces says a lot lmao 😂. #vsgjourney #fighterdiet #fighterdietgirl #vsg #fitnessjourney #fitnessjourney2018 #weightlifting #weightliftingmom #momswholift #girlswholift #weightlossjourney #vsgstrong #barifit #shoulderworkout #bicepworkout #tricepsworkout #chestworkout #pullups #backworkout #neverfail #neverquit #saturdayworkout

Taco salad with beyond meat, lettuce, cheese, guacamole, sour cream black olives and salsa. This is the first time Im trying beyond the meat and it’s actually good. I e tried another brand I can’t remember which one it was but I wasn’t a big fan of it. This can be a good alternative when I don’t want to do ground turkey or meat. #vsg #vsggirl #vsgcommunity #vsgcommunitysupport #vsgstrong #vsggoals #vsglife #vsglifestyle #vsgliving #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #wls #wlsgirl #wlscommunity #wlscommunitysupport #wlslife #wlsstrong #wlssurgery #wlsjourney #wlsupport #vsgsupport #wlsgoals #vsggoals #thankfulforvsg #vsgmexico #wlsmexico #vsgeats #vsgfood #wlsfood #wlseats
Face to Face Friday! I am 55lbs down and much more to go. Been on vacation and trying to watch what I eat. Some days I feel there is no difference until I look at a photo of myself. It's been hard not being able to eat what I want when I want but it's getting easier day by day. Cant wait to see where this journey continues to take me 💪 × × × #bariatricsleeve #vsglife #vsgcrew #weightlossstory #losingweight #motivation #lbs #weightlossprogress #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgliving #down #rny #weightlosschallenge #vsgfam #lifeafterwls #wlstransformation #f2f #vsgbeforeandduring #vsgsuccess #lifeaftervsg #sleevesurgery #weightlossdiary #vsgpostop #weightlosstransformations #fatloss #vsgstrong #weightlosshelp #VSG #beforeandafter
They ask me all the time, “How do you work out 5-6 times a week?” And I answer every time with “It’s freaking hard!” I don’t sugar coat anything, it takes so much discipline to wake up every morning knowing you can sleep in! It is a love/hate relationship, a mental battle. But what keeps me pushing is knowing that I am only getting better and I am one step closer to reaching my goal! Coach always tells me “GET YOUR MIND RIGHT” #happyfriday #wls #wlsinstafamily #wlsinstacrew #wlspostop #wlsgoals #wlsmeals #wlssurgery #wlsjourney #wlsfitness #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsginstafamily #vsginstacrew #vsgdiet #vsgmeals #vsgfitness #vsggoals #vsgstrong #vsgpostop #vsgisonlyatool
I stay reppin!!! #wlsfamily . . On another note...size 10s BABY!!!!!!!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
Last night we got a date night♥️ Felt amazing in my new clothes. Felt amazing hanging out with this guy, who reminded me how far I have come and how much further along I will be for my birthday in November, another 2 months away. In my head it felt different walking around the streets of our little city. People don’t look at me the way they used to. Now people respond differently to me. Having lost 71lbs since January, when I walk around I feel like people accept me more, smile at me more, don’t make room for me to get by now, don’t stare at me. Now when people look at me, they are acknowledging me, not evaluating me. Now when I go out I feel like I look like everyone else, wearing clothes from stores I couldn’t shop in before, I’m not the biggest person in the room anymore. I feel more accepted, more confident, more open to meeting new people and venturing out of my comfort zone a bit. This journey has really changed my life. ♥️💛♥️💛 SO GLAD I JUMPED! #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #vsglife #vsginstacrew #vsgpostop #vsg2018 #vsgliving #vsgtransformation #vsginstafam #vsgstrong #jump #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricbabes #gastricsleeve

So this happened today - SIZE 8!!! Seems surreal as I was wearing a 22 prior to surgery. {disclaimer: didn’t get them because they were to short, aka floods, but the waist fit just right 🙃}.

Leg Day! Warmup 30 mins on the treadmill: intervals, incline intervals, side shuffles, walking lunges. Hit legs with good mornings, single leg lunges, banded glute kick backs, also did some lat pulldowns, rotator exercises and triceps pulldowns in between sets. #fitness #fit #fitnessjourney #fitmomof3girls #fighterdiet #legdayworkout #weightlifting #weightliftingmom #momswholift #liftingweightsmakesmehappy #cardio #glutes #goodmornings #singleleglunges #glutekickbacks #thursdayworkout #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgstrong #barifit
It’s been three weeks since my pre op appt and three days since surgery!! I didn’t know what to expect going into it, how would I feel after, what would I eat, when could I get back to work? Just a few of the 1000 questions I had. I’ve healed so well already I’m up and about and have been since discharge yesterday. The only question I have for all my sleeve buddies is how did you keep the recommended amount of liquid down ?? 😂
Easy “breakfast”. I eat this just about every day....sometimes for breakfast, sometimes for supper. Ole Xtreme wellness low carb tortilla, shredded cheese, @johnsonville Better than Cheddar smoked sausage, and a little taco sauce. Microwave for 1 minute and roll up. Sometimes I eat it all, sometimes I don’t...just depends on my stomach that day. Good, low carb, and easy way to get protein in. #100poundsdown #vsg #vsgeats #vsgcommunity #vsgchangedmylife #vsgfood #vsgjourney #vsgmeals #vsgpostop #vsgsurgery #vsggoals #vsgcommunitysupport #vsglife #vsgcouple #vsgcrew #vsgstrong #vsgfriendly #vsginstacrew #vsgfamily #vsglife #vsgfitness #vsg2017 #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #bariatricsupport #bariatricsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #sleevegastrectomy

My curves are (mostly) where I want them now. 🙌🏻 Only regret with wls is not doing it sooner, but it’s never too late to decide to change and then just CHANGE. You’re never too old. You’re never too busy. Don’t allow yourself to be too scared. Just start that slow climb and make it happen. 🤜🏻💥♥️ :: :: #VSG #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgliving #vsgfamily #vsgcrew #vsgfriends #wls #wlsfam #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsvsg #wlspostop #losersbench #gettinghealthy #gettingfit #weightlossjourney #fitspo #wlssupport #vsgsisters #weightloss

This is so true! We get so caught up with how far we have to go and we fail to celebrate how far we’ve come! I needed to read this today since I’ve been at a stall for the last week. Losing 100 lbs from my heaviest is a huge accomplishment and last year I could only dream of being this small💪🏽 It’s a huge reminder to respect the process and to be thankful for how far you’ve come! #Repost from @sleevedlifeinseattle . . #VSG #sleevedgirls #sleevedgirlsrock #vsgcommunity #vsgcommunitywls #vsgcommunitysupport #vsggirl #vsggirls #vsginstacrew #vsgsurgery #vsgstrong #vsgadventure #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #weightlossjourney #weightlosscommunity #weightlosstransformation #workout #eathealthy #getfit #weightlossmotivation #goals #exercise #justdoit #Weightlossgoals #gastricsleeve #wls #wlssupportgroup #wlsgoals
Non-scale victory number 2 has arrived at 9 days post-op! SKINNY FEET! The photo on the left is right after my pedicure 3 and a half weeks ago. The photo on the right is today. My feet definitely look smaller. They’re also cold pretty much all the time which is definitely something new. Also, please ignore my dog who has to be the center of attention literally always. 😂 and excuse me while I go stare adoringly at my feet.
Instead of trying to hack my email and Instagram, they should hack my credit report and delete my damn student loans. I’d even pay them! What does my Instagram have that you want???!!! #iifym #iifymlifestyle #vsgcommunity #keto #ketoislife #ketolifestyle #ketodiet #ketogenicdiet #ketojourney #wlscommunity #wlseats #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsgmeals #vsgstrong #vsgdiet #wlseats #wlsmeals #wlsbabes #wlsgoals #vsgbabes #vsggoals #vsgfood #wlsfoods #wlsjourney

Who is that person on the left? God o mighty. I cried when I took the pic on the left and I did not even recognize myself. 18 days and 18lbs down from surgery on the 7th. I have to trust and be patient with this process. #vsg #vsgjourney #vsglife #bariatricsurgery #bariatric #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #wlssupport #bariatricsleeve #minisleeve #vsginstacrew #vsgsisters #smallmeals #vsgsisterhood #bariatrics #wlstransformation #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #vsgstrong #protein #proteinshakes #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss
Maaaaaannn Listen!! The way I’m CRIIINNNNEEEEE right now!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣
I’ve seen this recipe floating around Facebook. I honestly don’t even know what it’s called. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I decided to mix it up tonight to have for lunch the next few days. I’ll add the avocado before I eat it...the “dressing” has lemon juice in it but I didn’t want to chance mine turning brown. I snuck a bite and it’s good!! I’ll post the recipe and a picture of it finished tomorrow!! #100poundsdown #vsg #vsgeats #vsgcommunity #vsgchangedmylife #vsgfood #vsgjourney #vsgmeals #vsgpostop #vsgsurgery #vsggoals #vsgcommunitysupport #vsglife #vsgcouple #vsgcrew #vsgstrong #vsgfriendly #vsginstacrew #vsgfamily #vsglife #vsgfitness #vsg2017 #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #bariatricsupport #bariatricsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #sleevegastrectomy
