Day 20 of the #wlsphotochallenge - Keeping it real . Sometimes even when you have the best of intentions your plans get f'ed up. . I was super excited to drink my morning coffee (TJs pumpkin spice coffee for the win!) and managed to take one sip before my phone buzzed letting me know I had an important meeting at the bank in 10 minutes. I put my mug down grabbed my purse, threw on some shoes and arrived 5 minutes late and rocking that look in the picture! (Bright pink yoga pants not shown) . I didn't stop until 4pm, after my yoga class. At that point I hadn't had a chance to eat anything, was behind on some important work, still hadn't been home to my coffee and had had very little water. I got home and realized I could (emotional) eat whatever I wanted to make up for the missed meals, or I could have my planned on snack, drink my coffee, concentrate on my water goal and enjoy the fajitas I was planning on making for dinner. I chose the latter. . Here's the real talk - life is going to throw some curve balls your way. I was stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, and exhausted most of the day...my instinct a few months ago would've been to eat every single one of those emotions, but it wasn't today and I didn't...and that choice wasn't hard to make, it just made sense to me. I can't say it enough - if you don't work on your relationship with food and what motivates your food choices, no amount of weight loss surgery will save you. You will, more than likely, continue to fuck up and revert to old habits every time you get thrown for a loop! . (Also, even at almost 10 months post-op l I'm not perfect, I still struggle...but it is getting easier!) . #realtalk #progressnotperfection #verticalsleeve #vsg #sleeved #sleevedsisters #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightloss #weightlosssupport #weightlosscommunity   #wlssupport #wlscommunity #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #vsginstacrew
Happy 1st Surgiversary to me! Getting here has been quite a journey so I got all dolled up in my 17 year-old daughter's size zero, gold sequin dress. As a gift to myself and anyone who wonders about this journey, I've created this page. It is a page of remembrance and learning. Will you tag along? . . . . .#vsg #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleeve #wls #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #verticalsleeve #wlscommunity #sleevegastrectomy #weightlosssurgery #vsginstafam #weightlossmotivation #weightloss #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #vsgbeforeandafter #lifeafterwls #vsgliving #wlsjourney #vsglife #beforeandafter #lifeaftervsg #vsgbeforeandduring
Another step closer to getting this pre-op stage done for surgery. I Had to do a barium swallow with live vision xrays today, this is because I get pretty bad heartburn & nausea or swallowing is hard. The surgeon doesn't want me to get certain procedures that'll make it worse or give me gerd, it's process of elimination. Next step is an EKG but today wasn't bad it just wasn't fun. #wlscommunity #preopwls #wlsjourney #pcoscommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #preop #pcosawereness #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsg
#facetofacefriday Happy Friyay to all my WLSers out there getting rid of their double chins and chicken necks. I’m with you. ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼

I will not lose my stamina I will not lose my stamina- I will NOT lose my stamina!! ... God I hope I don’t lose my stamina. I’ve alwaaaays hated running. But that’s bc I wasn’t good at it. As they say, “do something u hate, until u love it.” Well- I don’t love it, but I can tolerate it and I’m proud of the stamina I’ve built. #TEAMNOFINISHLINE 💪🏼
This is what I ate today. I had a 4oz burrata in the fridge that’s expiry was today. So obviously I had to eat it. 😂 Aside from that, I ate intuitively and tracked all my food at the end of the day. I was pleased to find that I was roughly within the bounds of my calorie/macro goals! They are: 1200cal, 80-100g protein and 1:1 ratio of protein to carbohydrates. I don’t typically do quite as much fat, but like I said, burrata. 😍 #wlseats #vsgeats #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #wlscommunity #wls #myfitnesspal #vsgsupport #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve
I can’t get my stupid watch to pair with my phone... so here’s my day. Went walk/jogging with friends this evening. No bleachers for me, but only because husband had to leave for work. I missed Monday night and Wednesday, so I knew I had to be there today even for 40 minutes. 🙌🏻 . #aspiringfitmom #fitmom #fitlife #weightlossmotivation #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #vsgjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsginstafam #vsgsupport #weightlossgoals #fitnessmotivation #wlscommunity #wls #wlslife #fitness #fitgoals #workout #goals #verticalsleevegastrectomy #accountability #fitfam #fitbitblaze

Got my order of #unjuryprotein Santa Fe Chili flavor. Made my first cup tonight...not as refreshing of course, but tasty enough.

Sometimes you really need to throw it waaaayyy back on Thursday and dig deep down in the archives to remind yourself how far you’ve really come.
I have my psych eval on the first. They did it was going to be 3 hours 😱!!!! It’s making me a little nervous. Can any of you let me know what to expect?? Do they tell right then if you pass or fail?? #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgfamily #vsgsupport

It’s been an up and down week and to only lose 0.9 kgs is a little disappointing but at the end of the day it’s still a loss and I’m proud of my self of doing this pre surgery diet early! 1 & a half weeks till my offical pre surgery starts. • Let’s aim for -2kg loss next week!! Fingers crossed 🤞
Omgerd yall!! I made creamy cheesy chicken and peppers. A little ranch and taco seasoning. Half cream cheese and bell peppers!! The whole fam bam loved it!!
September 26, 2018 will change the rest of my life (for the better)! #ProclaimingIt I’m full swing into my pre-op liquid diet and hope to share and connect with people also going through this weight-loss journey. Any twins out there? 💫✨💫✨💫 #PositiveVibesOnly #PositiveBodyImage #VSG #WLS #WLSCommunity #Weightloss #SleevedLife #GastricSleeve #BariatricSurgery #weightlossjourney #vsgcommunity #Vsglife #vsgjourney #fitnessjourney #blackwomenlosingweight #vsgsupport #VSGSisters #VSGInstacrew #Bggst
So I haven’t been able to eat since my baby dog passed away on Monday. It was difficult because my husband had to go on a business trip on Tuesday. So I drug myself out of bed today when he was coming home and made this chili. I wasn’t able to eat much of it, but it tasted really good.. comforting. If you want it even more low carb just leave out the corn tortillas. On a good note I guess is that I’ve lost 5 lbs this week. Recipe is in my links in my profile. #keto #vsg #vsgeats #vsgsurgery #wlsfoods #wls #wlssupport #weightlossdiary #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosscommunity #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleeve #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #vsgfood #vsgjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlseats #wlsfood #wlsstrong #wlssurgery #weightlosssurgery #ketodiet #ketolife #ketofood #ketolifestyle #ketomeal #lowcarb
I’ve always loved clothes! While losing some weight I’ve already had to donate multiple bags! I decided to join Poshmark (a place where you can list and sell your clothes) so that maybe some of my nicer items that I didn’t get to wear much can be sold for relatively cheap! Considering I still have 70-ish lbs to lose, I’ll have to get rid of a lot more clothes! And therefore buy more, and what better place to do this! • • • I’ll put my Poshmark link if anyone wants to take a look in my bio. I’m going to be adding several items probably everyday. I just listed a few things for today to get started! It’s not hard to list, but a little time consuming :) • • • If anyone else is on Poshmark I would love to look at your stuff and you could DM me a link, or even post it below! (Although I’m not sure Instagram allows us to copy comments if not I’ll figure it out!) 🤗 #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsglife #wls #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #losingweight #weightlosscommunity #wlssupport #weightlossmotivation #clothes #poshmark

Tuesday made 3 weeks since my surgery. Kinda at a stall, but from reading others journeys, this is the norm between weeks 3 and 4 so I'm not trippin. I'm just happy to be alive! 💯💪🏿🙌🏿 #VSGLife #vsgfamily #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgprogress #vsgsurgery #VSG
Pardon the french, but it’s true! Mental health is so important!
#tbt ~1yr since launching my website (new site coming this wkd!) ⠀ My mom & I were still hand mixing + making daily trips to the post office until about May. ➡️ now it's made + fulfilled by amazing partners. ➡️& soonnnn next step is finally doing my FIRST production run w/my incredible factory. GUYS I'M PUTTING IN AN ORDER FOR THOUSANDSSS OF BAGS TO BE MADE😜🤯🤪 ⠀ This has been truly a grind + a test of patience (thanks to every one who lent their support to my post a couple back❤️❤️) ⠀ Safe to say I'm no longer "about that trash bag life" or daily post office life lol, so it's kind of awesome to look back on this and confirm to myself that things get better as long as we don't give up 👍💪👊 sending everyone positivity, joy, & support if you need it! ⠀ P. S. If you've sent me DM's & emails I truly apologize for my delay. Got so many deadlines & craziness at the moment but I'll get to you. Follow up with me, it helps!
This is the 1st time in a LONG time that I actually think my face looks pretty. Being nearly 280 lbs leads to having a round, soft face. I couldn't feel pretty with a moon face. It is amazing the difference 30 lbs makes. #wlphotochallenge #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgbeauty #vsgcommunity #wlssupport #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlstruth #bariatriclife #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsupport #ifeelprettytoday
Me at 10 days post-op. 😂😂 #thestruggleisreal
This ain’t fair yo. Now that everything working properly I’m sitting here geeking for a little one. I want one so bad. I just want to see and hold what a piece of me and my heart looks like. 😔 #intermittentfasting #panniculectomy #operationgetsnatched #HIIT #weightlossjourney #weightloss #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #goals #vsgjourney #lifeafterwls #vsgsupport #fitlife #vsglife #lifestyleblogger #weightlossstory #weightlossmotivation #fit #healthy #extremeweightloss #weightlossinspiration #wlstories #vsginstacrew #vsgeats #rny

I was going to ask you guys if i should buy this, but I ran out of time at Goodwill and it was only $7 so I just went for it. My reactions: 1-🙂 2-😀 3-😑
📷@shal_i_inspire One Day or DAY ONE. You decide. One of the most relatable quotes for me is “Change happens when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of making a change”. For me, my “pain” was when I hit 180 lbs. I couldn’t stand looking at myself in the mirror, I had lost both my confidence and energy. I had zero energy when I came home from work and was too tired to play with my kids. I actually blamed my situation and made excuses for my setbacks 🤦🏻‍♂️. Finally, I realized that I needed to stop complaining about how I was feeling and DO something about it. So, in April of 2017, I made a conscious decision to change my eating habits. In 3 months, I had lost 27 lbs, JUST BY CHANGING MY DIET. No working out. I removed all the crap I had been eating and began having a healthy, consistent diet. Shortly after I had lost the weight, I met @_xifit_ a personal trainer, who coached me into a whole new person. I slowly started seeing my muscles show and tone in places I hadn’t ever seen 😬😁. My confidence is back and now I have more energy than I know what to do with. It wasn’t just the results that motivated me, it was those negative feelings I mentioned earlier that made it become a habit. I never wanted to feel that way again. Now, I wake up early, EXCITED to go to the gym. I go to work, even stay late and still have energy to play with my kids when I get home. My partner and I have turned meal prepping into a weekly routine. I have balance in my life. And I thought to myself, if I can feel this way then I want other people to feel this way too. So, this is my journey, I hope it inspires you to start yours. Happy New Year 💪🏼😁💯 ❤️ follow @W.L_guide for more like this.
Protein waffles made from kodiak mix (with water), scoop of unflavored protein powder, sugar free chocolate chips, and one tablespoon of melted peanut butter. . .

My focus in the gym is always to push myself to do more. But sometimes that makes me lack proper form. So I am going to start focusing on better form more than pushing it to the limit. Not that I won’t strive for larger goals.
