When you see a candid picture of yourself, and are pleasantly surprised by what you see 💃🏼 Crystal and I went out on the town last night, and I wore a jean skirt and tank I had during my senior year in college (2009/2010). Such a fun night, and amazing to feel good in my own skin. 📸: @nycrystalww Sometimes it feels like my mind will never catch up with my weightloss, but then I see this and I feel like all my hard work is paying off. (Currently sitting at about 95lbs lost). I’m so happy I’m also finally learning to live in the moment. During much of my weightloss journey, I stayed away from social situations (especially unplanned) because I knew it would send me off track. But now I know I can make it work, and the memories are worth so much more. #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #transformationtuesday #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #100lbsdown #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #extremeweightloss

Sea bass tiradito with Hawaiian salt, sriracha, chili oil, lime oil // This wins my favorite #sashimi /tiradito EVER. Bright, light, sweet, salty, citrusy, smooth, and daaamn #spicyaf. Unbelievable balance of flavors. Washed it down with a mezcal-negroni after driving (slowly and picturesquely) to Durango for nearly 8 hours. Highly recommend this spot (@popsushidurango) and this #tiradito dish. ❤️ #pallatepleaser

Happy Friday!! This has been my morning the last 5 or 6 weeks. Going to the gym first thing, then home and making coffee BEFORE the hustle and bustle of getting ready for work. I’ve been taking the 15 or 20 minutes to sit on my couch and reflect on my day. As someone who suffers from major anxiety and sometimes depression, this has been key for me. I must get myself in a positive mindset before leaving the house. Lately I’m so grateful for the genuine sense of joy I have felt the last few months. Removing negative people, toxicity, and really working hard on myself is paying off. I remember a friend a few years back said to me, “what happened to you, you used to be so happy!” - and she was right. I was. Like what happened to me!? There on out I realized I had to make changes even if that meant pulling back from friendships that hindered my well being and even quitting a job that left me in tears pretty much daily for no reason! And man was that an even more painful and sad process. But, at this point in my life, it is what it is and had to do what was best for me. I don’t HAVE to make plans if I don’t feel like it, I don’t HAVE to explain myself or my calendar to anyone. I AM a hard worker and deserve to work in a healthy environment! This is my life and I choose to be happy! There is no doubt that I will still have bad days, but I’m truly happy with where I am right now and so thankful for the strong and resilient women in my life who look to bring us up, not down. Who celebrate our happiness! 🙏🏻 I’m also thankful to have found a partner in life in which I can be open and honest about these feelings I have. Someone who sees me at my worst but will listen to me and just hug me when I need it. And that he respects me and would do anything he could, to make sure I continue on this path. 💕

Mental Health / Accountability / Facing Off w/ the Monster that is Regain Post : Hi again. 👋🏼 I’m Liz. I had weight loss surgery in March of 2015. Over time I lost over 175 lbs as a result. Had some regain and found a place I was happy and healthy. Underwent a lower body lift 6 months ago. Had to put working out on hold for a while. Broke my arm and had to put it on hold longer. During this, noticed I’m able to eat more (3+ years out, ugh) and took full advantage of it. 😉 Officially more than 50 lbs heavier than my lowest. Regain is a three headed beast. I’m seeing numbers on the scale I thought I’d never see again (no more onederland for me). But I’ve also got this killer flat tummy that is a total and utter mind fuck (clothes are getting tighter but crop tops are looking 🔥🔥🔥). Working on loving me and getting back to making good choices. Back to the gym. Back to embracing margaritas and pizza within reason and making better, whole food decisions on the reg. Back to being into myself - even if I never lose another pound as long as I live. Wanted to throw this out into the Insta universe as a wish and a start. Send good vibes. Invite me to work out. Tell me I’m pretty. And encourage me to keep it up. ⚡️⚡️

Rise and shine!! ☀️or more like “I deserve a pat on the back for NOT snoozing!” I mean hey that’s reality! It’s trial week for Tribe Training so this was our workout and for the first time I really felt strong all the way through💪🏻! Our 4th season begins Monday, and ends the week before the wedding, so it’s perfect timing to keep the momentum and positive vibes going! 💥

Eggs, grilled veggies, avocado, goat-cheese, homemade sweet-basil pesto, on garden greens // Just arrived in the sweet town of Crestone, Colorado. We were greeted with the most delicious assortment of high-vibe treats at this cute cafe, greens being especially welcome after camping at the sand dunes. Also of note: this might be the best sweet-basil pesto I've ever eaten. Mmm. #cloudstation #crestonecolorado

I weighed in this morning at 173.4. Well if that isn’t a wake up call!! I’m up about 10lbs from the week of surgery (tomorrow marks eight weeks since my #abdominoplasty / #tummytuck and #breastaugmentation). Yes I know some of this is swelling, but some of this is weight gain too. Posting here keeps me accountable, and I’ve definitely been slacking lately. So here it is, my 1,000,034 fresh start! But I’m certainly not giving up. I still absolutely LOVE counting macros, I’ve just given myself too much freedom while recovering. So I’m back to working with @sensfitnessusa and back to being 💯 honest with my tracking. Note to self: if you don’t track it, that doesn’t mean you didn’t eat it. The scale still knows 😂 I’ll make Wednesday’s my new weigh in day. Note: I have no idea how to figure out what macros work for me, and that’s why I reached out to @sensfitnessusa, they created a program for me and coach me threw it. I’ve had great success with them, and know I have the tools to reach my goals. My goal weight was 160, but I’ve decided to lower it to 153. #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #smartpoints #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #plasticsurgery #lowcarb #fitness #extremeweightloss #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating

Poké for lunch today 🙌🏻 I got zucchini noodles, with sashimi tuna & yellowtail. Then two types of seaweed, scallions, sriracha aioli, avocado, crab, mango, and lots of bonito furikake. Calories: 439, carbs: 21.7g, fat: 26.9g, protein: 25.7g.

Will I ever “enjoy” getting up early? Probably not! Will I ever regret the workout? Never! Today I wanted to quit halfway through boot camp. There were a few circuits that I just “couldn’t do” but I realized it was a mind block. I had to push through, and with the encouragement of our trainer, I did the best I could! So happy to finally be back in the swing of things🔥. It’s incredible the difference I not only feel physically after these workouts but how I feel in my mood and my mind. Positive vibes people. Positive vibes.✌🏻

Crispy fried eggs with #sneakygreens s+p, parmesean-kale salad, burnt bacon // As I'm traveling and receiving so much support (and cozy beds) from soul-friends along my journey, I really love to treat my generous hosts with not only homemade breakfasts, but also little gifts to enhance their lives. My favorite gift of all is a set of @sneakygreens salt + pepper grinders. Never fails to become the favorite go-to in everyone's kitchen across the globe. I love getting texts months later saying, "gahhh we love this stuff," and "have you ever tried this on xyz?" It's a company I love, making quality gifts for people I love. If you've been following me a while, you've seen my hashtags about it, and we all know how much I luvv salt and pepper on EVERYTHING. Swipe to see the video where even my bestie's DOG is excited about a new set that arrived this morning! Hilarious! #ApolloObsessed #ilovesneakygreens #lovelanguage #traveltips

I had another work lunch today, and it went super well. I ordered a smoked salmon salad with kale, avocado, egg, tomatoes (which I skipped), and arugula. I didn’t use the dressing, and ate about half of what’s pictured. I also ate 1/4 of a baked lemon donut with an earl grey glaze (vegan & gluten free) and it was simply divine! This place had a bunch of great gluten free desserts, can’t wait to try some others!

Round up of day two of being totally back on track with my macros. Breakfast was so delicious!! I had leftover cold rotisserie chicken breast, an ounce of my favorite @gothamgreens vegan pesto 🤤, a whole avocado, and some @nocrumbsleft marinated onions. For lunch I had a work lunch and picked at some poké (keep swiping for my fitness pal screenshot, as I didn’t take a picture). And dinner after getting home late from an event was 3 ounces of ribeye beef & roasted eggplant with @raoshomemade marinara sauce. I also had 1/2 cup of @coconutbliss mint chocolate chip non-dairy ice cream for dessert because it’s so scrumptious, and I can! I’m high on fat, and low on protein, carbs, and calories.

Figured I’d post my day in review as I attempt to get back to posting more regularly. You can swipe to see each of my meals broken down (I track on the upgraded my fitness pal), and can see my macros for the day if you continue swiping. Dinner was 6oz smoked salmon on romaine lettuce “wraps”, with fresh lemon juice, and pepper. I also had 175g of New Zealand lamb chops, and dessert was 50g of @coconutbliss mint chocolate chip ice cream and good lord, it’s so delicious!! It’s dairy, soy, and gluten free, non gmo and simply tastes like heaven!!

Regardless of how many people warned me before surgery that the scale would be a mindf*ck in the weeks following skin removal surgery, I still wasn’t prepared for it. I stayed off from the scale for a long while, but currently am watching my weight fluctuate up to 6lbs a day. I gave myself grace in the weeks that followed surgery, but now I’m 6.5 weeks out, and there are no more excuses. I’ve set myself up for success and now I’m going to go and grab it! Breakfast was 3oz dark meat rotisserie chicken, 1oz of @gothamgreens vegan pesto (basically it’s pure heaven). If you’re in NY or CT your Whole Foods probably carries this (might be sold nationally too, but I’ve seen it in NY & CT...). #notsponsored. I also had 1.5oz of avocado. Then my usual coffee with 2 scoops @vitalproteins (I increased from one scoop about two months ago as I prepped for surgery), and 4T of vanilla @nutpods. Swipe for macros. I track in the upgraded my fitness pal. I am able to start back at the gym this week 🎉 so I’ll do some elliptical and light arm work and see how that goes 🤞🏻 #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #beyondthescale #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #whole30

Lunch today was rotisserie chicken breast, and avocado on romaine leaf “wraps”. I also had 2oz @coyo_is_coconuts coconut “yogurt” with 5g of raw manuka honey. Swipe for macros, I track mine in the upgraded my fitness pal. Today is day one of my serious macros reset. Since surgery I’ve been loosely counting and giving myself lots of wiggle room, but now that I’m officially six weeks post-op it’s time to get serious! I’ve gotten messages asking if I like macros, and I love it! It allows me so much more freedom, and understanding of foods and calories (I like to be in control), and I guarantee I wouldn’t have left weight watchers and stepped down as an ambassador if I didn’t KNOW it was the right choice for me and my body. We all have to make the right choice for ourselves. I have nothing against the WW program, it just no longer worked for me. #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #extremeweightloss #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #lchf #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree

Wow. Boot camp is no joke!! I was sweating within 5 minutes and eft dripping but it was a challenge and heck, it was even FUN👍🏻! Such a good group that didn’t care I was new! I usually shy away from team stuff since I’m usually the slowest, but this has really helped with my confidence and motivation to continue🙌🏻. Crushed it this week🔥! Off to the beach with my best friends for my bachelorette weekend and going to enjoy every moment!! Happy Friday ! ☀️

First time trying this new to me @coyo_is_coconuts dairy free yogurt and it was actually really good! But I also learned that, I probably shouldn’t have eaten it on an empty stomach, and should probably start with 1/4 of the serving size until my body adjusts since it is chalk full of probiotics that my body clearly isn’t used to. I’ll spare you, and won’t elaborate on the matter 😂 Swipe for macros (I track in the upgraded my fitness pal). #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #smartpoints #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #beyondthescale #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #whole30

Since my skin removal surgery on April 19th I’ve really tried to avoid the scale since the abdominal swelling is still real and I haven’t been able to be very active. Posting for accountability, but I’ve opted to skip weigh in for this month. Back to it for June 🙌🏻 I’ve been eating mostly on track, (which for me means low carb & counting macros), back to my regular self soon! I haven’t stepped on the scale in like two weeks and truly don’t know what I weigh, but I feel good. #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #smartpoints #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #extremeweightloss #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #abdominoplasty April 162.9

It’s not easy getting up extra early to be at a 6am class, even harder when I walk in and see 25m of traveling beetles in our rotation for the day! But it’s been so great to be a part of a fun group again. I’ve really enjoyed Tribe Training and can’t wait to see what the next 6 weeks hold in store for me! Shoot, they even talked me into coming to boot camp tomorrow morning 🙈

Breakfast this morning was quick and easy. I had two romaine leaf “sandwich’s”, each had half a slice of @fieldroast vegan Chao “cheese” (thanks to @balancedashley for posting about this- it’s good, and I love that it doesn’t contain rice in the ingredients), two slices of @organicnuna turkey (my favorite brand, and #Whole30 compliant), and some yellow mustard. Also had some peppers and @sabra guacamole on the side (swipe for macros).

Pork egg roll bowl for lunch today, plus three extra servings for the week! Swipe for macros, step by step in my stories today! I browned 1lb ground pork, added 1lb coleslaw mix, three whole scallions (chopped), salt, cook on medium heat until the veggies are nearly wilted down. Then add 1/3 cup @coconutsecretofficial coconut aminos, 1/2T @redboatfishsauce fish sauce, simmer until well combined. Once done, turn off stove (keep on the burner) and add 1T sesame oil, mix well. I garnished mine with more scallion & some sesame seeds. So good! You can use soy sauce instead of you like, and change up the protein.

I tried a new thing tonight: a frozen baked-fish kit from Target - Love the Wild brand. It comes with a frozen fillet, 3 frozen sauce hearts, & a piece of parchment. (I added red bell pepper.) Some things I liked: the ingredient list, the "where this fish came from" stamp, how quick & easy it was. Didn't like so much: the parchment was super slick & kinda hard to crimp (the second one went better, I realized I needed to slow down). My first one didn't plate up too pretty, but the second one went better. The verdict: I appreciated a no-brainer meal, & I loved the fish & the sauce. Hubs liked the fish very much, but not the sauce. About $10/serving. A tad pricey for homemade maybe, but definitely cheaper than eating out. Worth it, I think, for those nights when you just don't want to think about dinner. ........................... ........................... #realfoods #justeatrealfood #jerf #wholefood #healingfoods #healthyfat #healthylifestyle #healthylifestylechanges #cleaneating #eatclean #nutrientdense #paleofood #glutenfree #eattherainbow #easymeals #cookingathome #seafood #pescatarian #trout #easydinner . #lazycook #productreview #afterwhole30 @target @i.lovethewild

Sometimes it’s so hard to comprehend that I’ve lost over 100 pounds. That woman that I was just two short years ago seems like such a distance memory. I don’t really remember who she was, but I know this woman today is happy with who she is. I was out on the deck cooking our steak on the grill tonight, with my binder off because I wanted my mom to take progress pictures of me. She took this candid, and I have to admit, I am happy with what I see. Am I perfect? No. Do I still have work to do? Yes. And I’m still swelling (nearly three weeks post extended tummy tuck). But for the first time in my life I am beginning to be at peace with my body. I always carried a lot of weight in my upper back, and immediately after my plastic surgery, when I saw my body I thought... darn, I should have had a little liposuction in my upper back. I was able to shut those negative thoughts down very quickly, and be so proud of how far I’ve come. I do not plan on having any more plastic surgery at any time in the near future. I had everything done I set out to “fix”. Yesterday morning I decided to step on the scale and was the same weight I was the morning of surgery. Last week I was +5lbs (all swelling), so I know the swelling is going down, but I can tell I still have a significant amount, which is completely normal. I did have 6lbs removed during surgery, +2.5lbs for breast implants. Current weight is roughly 162, for reference I’m 5’9. (For those asking the antibiotic allergic reaction is still around, still about 75% improved, but a few new patches continue to pop up. My dermatologist warned me this would likely be the case, and told me to expect about a six week recovery). #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #transformationtuesday #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #smartpoints #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #extremeweightloss #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #tummytuck

Pesto chicken salad with bacon, avocado, and shredded lettuce, in a romaine “wrap” from one of my favorite local CT sandwich shops. Swipe for my macros breakdown, which is my best estimation. I didn’t eat much of the avocado. #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #weightwatchers #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #beyondthescale #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #lchf

When you can make a double serving (4oz) of @cappellos paleo, gluten & grain free fettuccine with @raoshomemade marinara fit in to your macros while binge watching @sho_theaffair, it’s a pretty good day! I started watching The Affair on Saturday afternoon and I’ve only got six episodes left. There are three seasons, 12 episodes per season (an hour each), and it is sooooo good! I’m watching it on demand, not sure where else it’s available. Also this pasta is one of my absolute favorites, it tastes like any great fresh pasta, but it’s made from almond flour. You’d never know it! Macros are calories: 460, carbs: 46g, fat: 29g, protein: 13g. Yes this takes the majority of my carbs, but 💯 worth it! #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #smartpoints #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #beyondthescale #paleopasta #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #ricefree

I'm trying something new in the morning! Sometimes I wake up a bit nauseous from my meds and especially on Mondays after everything I've eaten over the weekend that I shouldn't have. ( #dontjudgeme ) I've always heard good things about apple cider vinegar, and I follow @drinkethans here on instagram. I saw this ginger flavor at Whole Foods and decided to add it to my health regimen. So much easier drinking this than straight vinegar; it's still strong, but delicious! And bonus, it settles my upset stomach almost immediately. Now if it would only give me the magic motivation to get on the treadmill later... #foodheals #guthealth #afterwhole30 #foodfreedom

So after my whole 30 I binged... hard.. lol but that’s real life. No one is perfect and honestly I need some cheat meals for my sanity 🙌🏼 but now that I’m graduated nursing school, I’m looking forward to putting more effort into working out and eating clean, especially before we hit Phoenix & Vegas!!

Not every day is going to be great, sometimes we’re in a funk, tired, and just feel blah and that’s okay. I think I over did it a little bit over the last two days (even though I really didn’t do very much), but I have to remind myself I had major surgery just over two weeks ago. Mentally I’m so ready to be back to my old self, but physically I’m not there yet and that has me down more then a little bit. I want to be out having fun in the sun with friends today. And I know I will soon enough. I’m not asking for anyone to feel sorry for me, I just want to keep it real. I’ve followed quite a few #skinremovalsurgery accounts on here and everything looked like rainbows and butterflies. It’s so easy to compare my journey to someone else’s on instagram. My plastic surgeon’s nurse told me yesterday that I still have a significant amount of tissue swelling, and I know that’s normal, everyone heals differently, but I feel like I have more then most. But I also have to remember I couldn’t wear my compression garment for five days because of my allergy. To be completely honest without that nasty allergic reaction post-op has been a breeze. But last night my abdomen was so swollen from doing too much and today my incisions feel achy. And I am completely exhausted. My only chore for the day is to shower. So I popped some Tylenol, and slept the morning away. Then I ordered my favorite sandwich from a local deli (chicken salad, bacon, spinach, and tomato on a romaine lettuce wrap). This has been my go to sandwich for years but I haven’t been to this deli in a long time because of the carbs. So I called them up and asked if they make lettuce wrap sandwiches, and sure enough they do now!

March 2016 vs April 2018. There is over 100 pounds difference between these two photos. No matter where you are on this journey, this is your reminder not to give up. Whether your the girl on the left, or anywhere in between, you owe it to yourself to keep going. It will be hard. But I promise you, it WILL be worth it. When I set out on this journey in early 2016 I never imagined I’d lose 100lbs. That didn’t even seem possible. I’d hoped for a few years that I would be successful, but I’d get frustrated, and ultimately end up gaining more weight. There was something different about this time. I set my sight on losing 5lbs at a time, but I also had this amazing community as my support. My starting weight was 264, and my first goal was to make it to the 220s (taking it 5lbs at a time). I joined @weightwatchers online on a whim back in January 2016, and combined that with low carb to lose my first 90lbs. I became a WW Ambassador and loved the program. Then it simply just wasn’t working for me, and I plateaued for nearly a year losing the same 5lbs. As hard as it was to admit, I knew I needed to make a change. I found macros in early April 2018, was consuming more food then I had been in years, and dropped 8lbs in two weeks bringing my total loss to 101.1lbs. The next day (4/19) I went in for skin removal surgery weighing in at 162.9lbs, and had 6lbs of skin and fat removed. I also had a #breastaugmentation (roughly +2.5lbs of saline implants). And here I am. I’m happy, I’m at peace, and when someone tells me I look great, I can now genuinely say THANK YOU instead of beating myself up in my own head. My journey is not over, I’ve lowered my goal weight from 160 to 153-155. (I’m 5’9 for reference). Right now I’m just focused on healing, and can’t wait to see the full results of my #abdominoplasty in a few months. I don’t know what I weigh today, but that’s okay! I won’t be weighing myself for a few more weeks until my swelling has gone down. THIS IS YOUR REMINDER TO KEEP GOING! Do it for yourself because only you can make it happen.

Super yummy dinner! My mom picked up a @bostonmarket rotisserie chicken as a treat, and I ate 1/4 without the skin. We also made TJ frozen green beans (I heat them from frozen in a non-stick skillet until they’re heated through), remove them from the stove and toss them in some @tessemaes balsamic vinaigrette. We also had some @cappellos gluten free, paleo gnocchi which are so freaking delicious, tossed in my favorite @raoshomemade marinara. I ate these gnocchi quite a bit last week when nothing sounded appealing. They’re not low carb, but I love that I can fit them in to my macros. Today I ate about 12 chocolate munchkins (see my stories, they were at least gluten, dairy, and soy free and totally worth it) so I’m writing the day off and calling tomorrow a new day! #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #smartpoints #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #beyondthescale #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #whole30

Breakfast the past few days has been so delicious! I’ve been having a roasted garlic @mikeys paleo english muffin, with a tablespoon of @kitehillfoods chive nut “cheese” spread, two slices of honey ham, and a tomato. Then two semi-soft boiled @vitalfarms eggs (8 minutes) on the side. I also have my iced coffee with 2.5 scoops of @vitalproteins collagen peptides (I increased my daily collagen intake about a month prior to surgery, for the past year I usually only use 1 scoop), and then add 4T of @nutpods. Macros: 420 calories, 12.2g carbs, 24g fat, 39.9g protein. #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #smartpoints #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #fitness #beyondthescale #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #whole30

Lunch today is a brussel sprouts and hot dog bowl 🤷🏾‍♀️ I know... weird. But it’s good . . . @applegate organic uncured beef hot dog + @traderjoes shaved brussel sprouts + red onion + garlic + @earthbalance butter. That’s all ya need! . . . I started with the 1 tbsp butter in a skillet. Added the 1/4 cup of onion and 1 tsp garlic until fragrant. Then added half a bag of brussel sprouts until slightly burned. Then added the two hotdogs. It’s easy, quick, and filled me up! I also had a few olives from the @publix olive bar. #shelbyeats #quickmeal #lunch #afterwhole30 #foodfreedomforever #hotdog #brusselsprouts #olives

I finished whole30 and feel good. I was able to shake free from major sugar cravings and even lost 8 pounds! Not running as much right now, but doing HIIT workouts and long walks. Feeling much more balanced and peaceful. And I love spring! #afterwhole30 #sugarfree #exercise #balance #fitness #hiit

Lately I’ve been obsessed with deconstructed burgers. They’ve been easy to eat during recovery, and are super tasty. Sometimes it’s with beef but lunches lately have been 8oz 99% lean ground chicken burgers cooked in 2t olive oil, chopped up, with red onion, chopped pickles, and lots of yellow mustard. I’m not back in the kitchen yet, so I’ve been relying on Mom, but she’s a great cook, so no complaints here!

I can’t believe it’s already time to post April weight loss already. I lost a total of 6.1lbs from April 1-April 18th (I started macros on April 7th). I haven’t weighed since the day before my skin removal surgery, and don’t plan to until mid May. I did have 6 pounds of skin removed and about 2.5lbs worth of breast implants added (none of this is included in the -6.1 for the month). I am still so swollen, and haven’t a clue what I weigh at this moment, but I am not concerned in the least. What a month it’s been for me!! From quitting Weight Watchers, to starting to count macros, to #skinremovalsurgery & a #breastaugmentation. Over the last 10 days I’ve focused on healing from surgery and fighting a severe allergic reaction to an antibiotic. I’m thinking I’m going to start back to macros tomorrow. Over the last 10 days I’ve been eating lots of fruit, protein, and clean foods, when I’m hungry. I’ve been eating too many carbs, but all good carbs. Slowly but surely my rash is subsiding. I’d guess I’m about 40% better which is such an improvement. I got this calendar from @ashleys.weightloss.journey & @rachelshealthyplate (you can find links in their bios, then I edit it with word swag). #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #pcos #pcosweightloss #protein #lowcarb #extremeweightloss #keto #healthstagram #fitfood #healthspo #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree #abdominoplasty 162.9

Happy Saturday! Crushed my workout goals this week and my body is totally feeling it🔥! Have to say it really feels amazing to be back in somewhat of a routine... not sure what happened the last few months but things were definitely off, physically and mentally. I kind of just shut down. When I went to acupuncture this week she basically told me I’m “starting over” and that I really need to put in the work to change my mindset. Those negative feelings about myself have been creeping back in, and really holding me hostage. Causing so much extra exhaustion, anxiety, and fear. Causing me to pick poor food choices and to make excuses about working out and just ALWAYS tired. Quite frankly. IT SUCKS. So after acupuncture I walked out and started over. It’s only been a few days but I feel great already! My mind has stayed in a much better place and I’ve been able to focus on myself, my goals, and my happiness!! Here’s to killing it this week, enjoying this gorgeous weekend and onto the next week! ✌🏻☀️

I got one of my amazon orders today, and I’m so happy about my big box of @veganrobs probiotic cauliflower puffs. Not sponsored at all, I just love them. They’re vegan and taste so much like pirate’s booty. One day I hope to try some of their other flavors. Swipe to see nutritional & allergy info. I can’t recommend these highly enough. Even my nieces (ages 1 & 3) we’re devouring them the other day when they visited. I also received my two donut pillows and another case of @palmini_pasta. You can guess what I’m having for dinner 😉 I am completely exhausted today, after my allergic reaction to the antibiotics yesterday, I’m on Benadryl... back to sleep I go 😴 #Macros #weightloss #iifym #iifymgirls #afterwhole30 #grainfree #foodstagram #healthyfood #jerf #wellness #eatclean #fitfood #tummytuck #pcos #pcosweightloss #abdominoplasty #progressnotperfection #lowcarb #skinremovalsurgery #lchf #healthstagram #fitfood #plantbased #losingweight #whole30alum #healthyeating #cleaneating #dairyfree #glutenfree
