Surgery is a weight loss tool. Nothing more.. . Some people need the extra tool to succeed. Some don't. Having weight loss surgery doesn't mean someone took the easy way out to lose weight. Another tool was needed to be successful. Shaming people who need to have surgery is not ok. . . I have been successful because I've used all my tools (surgery, nutrition, & exercise) to their fullest. I will continue to be successful because I'll continue to work towards my goals. Not for one second do I regret the choice to have surgery. It has helped me get my life back. . . . #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #weightlosssurgery #wls #duodenalswitch #ds #vsg #rny #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #wlscommunity #wlscommunityds #wlscommunityvsg #wlscommunityrny #wlsblog #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlssuccess #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandafterphoto #dramaticweightloss #bariatricresults #bariatricliving #bariatriclife #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsupport #weightlosssupport
Follow-up to yesterday’s post! For some reason my current measurements didn’t load correctly. But here it is! I definitely look forward to starting back on the gym (for real this time, nothing should be holding me back) and getting my legs and arms more toned. One of my goals is to fit into tall boots without having to do the wide calf. I think I’ve still got a ways to go for that but hopefully I’ll get there!

Great leg shake out #sweatsaturday session with Lisa at @evolvemyfitnessllc #cycle is my favorite class. Legs were heavy and my right side tight. After class much better! • QUOTE FOR THE DAY: “One ☝️ thing is to get there, but can you hold it.” I’ll be sharing more in #igtv and my story in regards to health, weakness and goals. • Learned a lot about the bike and where I need to take my training to, to get that #Godspeed and run faster • Green is my working zone and blue is my recovery zone. • #bfit4life #onlinefitnesscoach #personaltrainer #fitandover40 #fitnessinspiration #futurenpsfigurecompetitor #momentrepreneur #iambfit4lifer #pruvitathlete #transformationcoach #weightlossinspiration #bodygoals #divafitnessambassador #pcosfitness #wlscommunity #theblessedlife #fitspro ##progressnotperfection #pcosfighter #fitnessmotivation #Just10 #pcoshealth #iamevolving
Reboot of all the medication I’m now on after surgery. I can’t wait to see the BP meds taper off. In this daily bundle I have 3 different blood pressure meds, anxiety med, reflux med, gallbladder med, multi vitamin, probiotic, fish oil, and calcium chews . . . . . #vsginstacrew #integrisweightloss #vsgjourney #vsg #wls #wlscommunity #allthemeds
“Self-worth is so vital to your happiness. If you don’t feel good about you, it’s hard to feel good about anything else”
I’m coming into my power. I’ve chosen my name and that is powerful. Identity is tied to how you refer to yourself and what others call you. Do you ever think 🤔 what would life be like if my name we’re different? Or my pronoun? What is in a name? This given and chosen? I suppose as much as you put into it. I’ve read that people with difficult upbringing will change their names more often. “I am not that person anymore!” Do you ever feel like that? I do. As a kid, my last name was always a guess and my first name sounded like I was in trouble. Bye 👋 Felicia (great name, not mine)! I am reborn! #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #respect #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlssupport #wlsstories #rny #witchesofinstagram #radicalselflove
Not to sound vain but I have thought I was pretty even when I was heavier...but now my confidence is at an all time high! Being healthier and feeling happier are my goals but feeling good in my own skin is a definite bonus!! #facetofacefriday #latergram _____ #wls #weightlosssurgery #vsg #sleeved #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #healthy #newchapter #vsgliving #vsgsupport #bariatricliving #bariatricsupport #fattofit #weightlosstransformation #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bigchanges #healthylife #girlmom #healthymomlife #extremeweightloss #Dallas #texas
Late lunch with my lovely bae. In Marks & Spencer’s. I ordered kids lunch meal - cheese and ham toastie, cheese snack block, apple slices, and apple juice . Loved it. I will have cheese and apple for a snack later and my drink in 30 mins (😑) #lunch #marksandspencer #cheeselover #vsg #vsguk #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsglife #gastricsleeve #gastricsurgery #gastricsleeveuk #gastricsleever #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #weightloss #weightlossdiary #weightlossuk #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #wls #wlsuk #wlscommunity #wlsstory #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity
Life gave me a run for my money this week! So much so that I am JUST getting to photograph the last dish that needs a photo for tomorrow’s online cooking class recipe booklet. . This is a sheet pan dinner with: lemon-herb chicken. (I used thighs here but will probably use breasts tomorrow...those in the class, I’ll explain why there!) With it we have Parmesan garlic zucchini and roasted butternut squash. (Before going in the oven...and swipe left to see it cooked!) . Mmmmmm...my house smells amazing right now. Plus this dish fits right in with the “Easy Weeknight Dinners” theme. I tested the recipe on a weeknight and it was very simple to put together and cook. And did I mention it all cooks on ONE SHEET PAN? . There’s still room in tomorrow’s class! When you sign up you can come to the class live or get a replay, and you get a downloadable recipe book with the recipes from ten class, pictures and a shopping list! . Check out the class at the link in my bio! . #bariatriccooking #wlscommunity #bariatricfood #cookingclass
Made egg loaf (sort of a soggy french toast) this morning from @keto.sam.iam So good!! I didn't expect it to be so breadlike but it delivered😋 #eggloaf #keto #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #vsginstafam #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsinstacrew #weightloss #gastricsleeve #myjourney
As of today... I have lost 48lbs from my highest weight of 315lbs! This combines both pre and post op! I’m so proud of myself! Long way to go but pushing forward!! . . . #vsginstacrew #integrisweightloss #vsgjourney #vsg #wls #wlscommunity #holycrap #almostto50 #shrinking #healthynewme #2018transformation
Today I deadlifted my body weight (actually a little over my weight). #proud #wlscommunity #wlsbabes #rny #rnycommunity #womenwholift #blackwomenwholift #sopl
Absolutely gutted. That broke my heart tonight. Rabbitohs lost. I’ll always be South Sydney #sstid #ggtss there were moments today that were absolutely unbelievable and I will treasure them regardless!! Only if you knew ☺️❤️💚❤️💚
You might wonder why I am constantly posting transformation pictures, but here is the story: this morning I looked down at the scale and was disappointed in a 2lb loss, I looked in the mirror and saw all my flaws and imperfections - it wasn’t until I looked back at the picture on the left that I felt amazing! I may not be where I want to be, but I am sure the hell not where I started - working on loving myself is hard, and I know that all this hard work will pay off - one day at a time! Keep pushing on my friends!! #keepmovingforward #reachinggoals #wlscommunity #weightlosstransformation #wlstransformation #transformation #losingelly
I missed #facetofacefriday so here it is.. left was march and right was today.

Since I'm home for my first full day--i figured I should make some goals for myself! So far I have gotten some liquids in (inculding 3oz of a protein shake) but boy has the gas pains come! It's just uncomfortable! Pain is thankfully getting much better. And I have my fiance home to help me out today! . . . . . . #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpostop #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlscommunity #vsgsupport

Friday Night Turn Up at the gym! Even tho I was tired, having Horrible back pain and just didn't want to go. I showed up! That's the hardest part. Getting to the gym is like 90% of the battle. One step at a time, one day at a time, WE FREAKING GOT THIS! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 #littlebylittle #vsg #wls #gains #weightlosstransformation #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabe #wlscommunity #weightloss #progressnotperfection #sleeve #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #vsgcommunity #fattofit #gettingfit #fitfam #fitness #fitspo #motivation #squat #beforeandafter #vsgeats #wlsjourney #gastricbypass #losingweight #healthyliving #insporation #transformation #losersbench
I want my d@$%n calories back 🤬! Carbs too🤬😡🤬😡! Like if you’ve ever felt this way!
No makeup, no filter, no lighting, no problem. I feel lovely in all my forms. 💕 My “whole self” is what I fucking decide it is on the night. And lately, I am showing up for me. I’ve had this epiphany that I am good enough. I don’t have to be what others want, I don’t need the judgement. I’m not “good ol’ reliable” anything! I am a wild and flowing river. I evolve and you will never meet the same river twice. The water 💦 is always changing, new, and a result of a lot of things working out well. I subject to my whims and the course is planned but prone to change. People build bridges because of rivers. People go places thanks to rivers. Real estate is valuable on the riverfront because people want to wake up and gaze into the magical. I am epic! Yes queen! 👑 #wls #wlscommunity #radicalselflove #selfcare #empoweringwomen #feminist #witchesofinstagram #witch #intersectionalfeminism
Yeah it’s me...the bracelet is always the give away as I never take it off. Trying with great difficulty to enjoy life with all my physical limitations. We all smiled through pain....which is how many of us begin our journey. It’s never too late, you’re never too old, you think it won’t work or that some how you will never eat again....whatever excuse you are telling yourself, DON’T allow it to deter you from this remarkable journey. 👉🏾 ❤️ 😘 👸🏽 🍑 💪🏾 🏃🏽‍♀️ 🌴 #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #sleevegastrectomy #sleeved #sleevelife #wls #wlscommunity #getfit #vsgbabe #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #weightloss #weightlossjourney #getfit #weightlosssurgery #nutrition #transformations #weightlosstransformations #fitness #facetoface #beforeandafter #wlslife #wlsinstafam #losingweight #bodypositive #over100lbslost

Tired as shit... but got up to run. Did more walking than running. My shins are killing me lol.
Saturday morning workout is complete! Swipe to see my workout. Decided to hit everyone move that came with my weight bench, minus 2 of them which i marked out. Just went through it once with 12 reps and ended with 2x30 sec planks. Who else got their Saturday morning workout in?! #athomeworkout #saturdayworkout #weightlifting #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitnesslifestyle #fit #fitspo #fitspiration #weightloss #fatloss #fatlossjourney #wls #wlscommunity
I've stopped weighing my self because I be same obsesed with every single pound. When you are on the road to recovery from an eating disorder, like I am, things like that become triggers.so I've decided to let my pictures and clothes help to keep on check. Of course I do weigh myself but I do it only once a month. My sleeve has made be honest with my disease and take responsibility, I am for sure taking more steps (like starting teraphy with a addiction specialist). It has also forced me to be more kind with my body and love me more , cause it ain't easy. I had more hair on the left but you can see how I feel about it now (I don't really care). That's that. #vsg #vsgfeelings #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #wlscommunity #vsgstory
A lovely autumn day for a wander about our local harbour. The fresh air and 17th century surroundings really are good for de-stressing. #healthylifestyle #weightlossjourney #wlscommunity #Fife #Dysart #Harbour #FatGuySlims #FreshAir #SeaAir #Boats #Sailing

The first thing I did on the first day of Fall 🍁🍂🍁🍂 #creatingnewhabits I want to slowly build up to longer distances so I did 4 miles today. I also went to a park with hills. I usually avoid hills like the plague, but I know that I need to start hitting them-even if it slows me down initially. It’ll help in the long run so I just gotta do it lol. It was great weather for a morning workout. Happy Fall, y’all! 😃🍁

Today is my 1 month Surgiversary!! In a month I lost a pant size, I went from a size 14 to a 12. You can see how baggy my pants are especially around my butt. I’ve lost inches. I have yet to measure. I was shocked to see I was able to finally fit in a LARGE!! Yes this coat that I tried on was a freaking LARGE!!! I didn’t get it though. As I’m still unsure of my weight in a couple of months. #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #vsglife #vsgpostop #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlsfamily #wlslife #wlstories

Today I am thankful for health insurance... 😳😳😳. I paid nothing for the surgery/hospital stay. Just for the doctors which is a drop in the bucket compared to this! . . . #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsg #wls #wlscommunity #sothankful #thankfulforinsurance
Woke up feeling great and silly lol day 3 post op reduction! Haven’t taken any meds yet and I’m totally fine so yay! 😂 Happy First Day of Fall y’all!!!
Just got out of bed. Still full of cold and don’t feel like eating but know I’ve got to! I was kindly donated some cooking apples from a colleague at works tree in his garden so I peeled, cut and steamed with cinnamon in the microwave.
