See that smile on my face? Yeah, I’m proud! I made it through real food day 1! 👊🏼 Today was a great day! I made it through all 3 meals. No puking, no dry heaving, no over eating. My stomach feels heavy. It feels full. Yet each meal was no more than 4oz and I didn’t even finish 1 meal completely. 😂😳🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m so proud of myself for the amount of protein I was able to take in today. Eventually I’m supposed to be shooting for 60-100g of protein a day. Ideally it’s supposed to be coming from whole, real foods. Not protein supplements. When your stomach can only hold 4oz, that’s really hard to do. But I’m learning! Tomorrow is a new day. I’m excited for what tomorrow brings. I’m shocked at how little sugar I’ve had. 😳 My tastebuds are changing. Things that used to taste good, really don’t appeal to me anymore. I’m eating for energy. I’m eating to fuel my body. I’m not really eating for pleasure anymore. Something I NEVER thought I’d say. So. You can have my chocolate bar, you can have that piece of pizza. Here’s to a whole new me! 👊🏼 Highlight of today: All of my bandages are off and my wounds are closed. I spent 2 hours in the hot tub. 🥰 It was heaven. ✨

Been at a stall on the scale for 12 days! 12 DAYS! But in the same 12 days I have lost 2.5 inches! 25 inches over all! I have to get over this obsession with the scale. It's obviously working! #vsg #vsgjounrey #wls #wlstransformation #gastricsleeve #gastric #extremeweightloss #weightlossjourney #sleeved #sleevegastrectomy #gastrectomy #vsgstrong #vsgbabes #baritastic #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #ketotransformation #ketosis #ketogenic #keto

My food for the week is prepped. My days will be: Breakfast: strawberry vanilla overnight oats with sugar free chocolate chips. Lunch & 2nd Lunch: Turkey taco bowls. I will add lettuce as I eat them. Not pictured but for dinner: Boca chicken patty & steamed veggies. And dessert: caramel rice cake, whipped PB & half a banana. If I am extra hungry I have some prepackaged salads ready to go, and lots of steamed veggies to eat also. 😋🤗 And then snacks are my jerky, strawberries and the turkey & cheese sticks. I am focusing on more meals lately but I do like to have those in between or on my car ride home or after the gym, ect. #hellodecember #december #decembergoals #wlsgoals #goals #mealprep #foodlog #personal #planetfitness #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic

I thought I would share with you all some apps and tools that have really been helping me a lot with my food consumption and how quickly I eat. I know I need to slow down my eating a lot more and get more protein. The first app is called Baritastic. You can do all of the usual things, like record your weight, water and your steps from your device will sync to the app as well. But the feature that has helped me the most are the timers, as shown in the second and third pictures. The first timer is one I set as soon as I finish eating, it goes for half an hour so you know when you are able to have a drink. The next timer, which has made a massive difference to how much food I can consume and comfortably, is the time to chew and it goes for 20 seconds, I find it's generally the perfect amount of time to take to finish a mouthful. The second app is called Easy Diet Diary. It can be used to track your food and the nutrition, I'm using it purely track my protein intake because I know I'm not getting anywhere near enough and it's helping me push myself to make better decisions about what I eat. Which brings me to my final tool/app. The account @sleevedliving. The information Zoe shares is amazing and I also found out from just asking her, that we should wait a minute between mouthfuls, it can seem like a long time so some people might be quicker, it's been so helpful. Also to try and take 20 - 30 minutes to eat your meal and wait 3 hours between meals, which makes sure your food is substantial (I can't think of the right word?) enough. She also has her own personal blog with lots of recipes, tips and advice on topics that are most common with WLS patients. This is not a paid ad or promotion, I am sharing this as I have found it extremely helpful for me and my journey and thought it may be helpful to others. ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬ #apps #tools #timers #blog #mealtracker #baritastic #easydietdiary #helpfultips #sleevedliving #vsg #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #wlsmelbourne #wlsstories #losingweight #bodyunderconstruction #aussiewls #weightlossjourney #gastricsleeve #sleevesurgery #myweightlossjourney #followmyjourney #vsgaustralia

Loving these overnight oats I've been having this week for breakfast. I'm obsessed. 😍 They keep me so full and satisfied. I do plan to try some different variations also next week. 40g old fashioned oats / 1 light and fit strawberry banana protein smoothie / 12g of JIF whipped PB / a little water / Shake well / Let sit overnight 300 calories / 17 grams of protein / 44 carbs / 9 grams of fat I am focusing on more meals and less snacks and these do really good at holding me over until lunch! #hellodecember #december #decembergoals #wlsgoals #goals #overnightoats #proteinoats #oats #foodlog #personal #planetfitness #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic

No workout for me today as I met with a friend for coffee and ended up chatting for a few hours. Just got home about an hour ago. Still on track with my nutrition (worked my coffee into my macros) and water. This is not an excuse though, I just decided to take one of my rest days today instead of on Saturday like I usually do. I plan to resume tomorrow 😊 Gonna have some dinner, watch an episode of my show, take a shower, and hit the hay. Happy Tuesday everyone 💋 #hellodecember #december #decembergoals #wlsgoals #goals #restday #transformation #personal #planetfitness #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic

(Parte 1/3) ¡Alcanzar tus objetivos puede ser más fácil con las herramientas adecuadas! Nuestra primera recomendación es: . . 1. BARITASTIC Una aplicación gratuita diseñada para pacientes bariátricos. Tiene muchas herramientas que te pueden ayudar a mejorar tus hábitos, por ejemplo: . . Recordatorios 🔸alarmas para tomar agua, vitaminas o licuado de proteína . . Food log 🔸 similar a MyFitnessPal, es un diario de alimentos en donde ingresas todo lo que vas comiendo en el día (y te despliega cómo va tu ingesta de proteína y nutrientes) . Timer 🔸 un cronómetro muy útil para medir los 30 min después de comer para poder tomar líquidos, o incluso para ayudarte a controlar la velocidad de tus comidas . Control de peso 🔸 una línea de tiempo en la que registras tu pérdida de peso . . Nuestra nutrióloga Astrid te puede ayudar a establecer tus objetivos en la aplicación para que lleves tu control. . . La única desventaja 👎 es que sólo está disponible en inglés por el momento. Pero si te interesan aplicaciones similares en español, déjanos un mensaje para apoyarte con eso.

Starting my week off right! Today was leg day, my favorite day 😁 I threw in a little bit of shoulders also. 🔥 It was pizza night at planet fitness and I completely forgot bc well I'm never here for it, so for the longest time during my workout I was like wtf who smells like food in here and why is it so effing crowded!! 😂 I didn't have any because I have goals and didn't feel like eating my workout.. and I didn't even care.. which is a BIG nsv in itself because pizza used to be my weakness / food of choice to binge on. #hellodecember #december #decembergoals #wlsgoals #goals #tranformation  #personal #planetfitness #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic

I'm a day late but whateva 😘 My goals are to stay consistent in the gym, tracking my food, drinking my water, and less snacking/more meals. I've already been doing these things but the snacking thing is what I most want to focus on. I'm not eating bad snacks but I think it could bite me in the ass in the long run. Also, I'm looking for a good recipe for oats / overnight oats if anyone would like to share 😊 #hellodecember #december #decembergoals #wlsgoals #goals #tranformation  #personal #planetfitness #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic

this past year and a half has been the hardest year I’ve ever lived. 😕 With my mom passing suddenly & unexpectedly in September 2017 I lost myself. Leading up to her passing… I put my health and my well-being on the back burner to take care of her & I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I was there for her up until her last breath. I easily have gained 40+ pounds since she’s passed… October 15, 2018 I took my life back. I had the vertical sleeve gastrectomy done. I spent five months physically and mentally preparing for this life-changing tool that I was given. Despite everyone telling me that I shouldn’t do this or that I should “ do it the natural way,” I stuck to my gut feeling and I followed through with my decision. It’s no secret that I’ve been overweight my whole entire life… I have let my weight define me, I have let it make me feel like I wasn’t worthy of time and love given by people, I have let my weight cry me to sleep at night, I’ve let my weight keep me awake at night wondering when will someone think I’m good enough & sadly I’ve let my weight destroy my confidence and self worth. May nights I would go to sleep hoping I wouldn’t wake up. I was done feeling this way, so 10/15/18 I got a grip and took control of my life. This has been the best decision I’ve ever made. 👌🏼🍾 I’m slowly starting to looking at myself in the mirror and appreciate and love the girl looking back at me. This is the new me & she is here to stay and flourish ! I will be as transparent as I can with you & be helpful in anyway possible ❤️ #vsg #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgpostop #nj #girl #confidence #bariatricsurgery #baritastic #instapic #vsgcommunity #myjourney #bornagain #myyear #transformation #gymflow100 #bodytranaformation #sleevedlife #sleevesurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlssupportgroup

Day 1 on my pre-op liquid diet... I weighed in at 193. So far so good. Tonight I'm looking forward to my bone broth soup with steamed veggies. Yummy... lol I started using the Baritastic app to keep track of my protein intake and weight. We also use the Renpho scale, which we both love. ❤💛💚 ~ ~ ~ #baritastic #renpho #highproteinshakes #preopdiet #plussize #fatandactive #letsgo #bossbabe #bariactricbabes #keepmovingforward #weightlossstory #weightlosssurgery #wljourney #weightlosscommitment #weightlosscommunity #weightlossjourney #bariatricsurgery #stanfordmedical #preop #VSG #fatgirlscan #stonedncurvy #bigandblunt

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m staying in today and enjoying some chicken broth and a movie.... I rather stay away from any temptation of delicious food.... either way family is mostly out of town so it made it easy to stay home and chill .... —- #vsg#liquids#bariatricwls#baritastic#igotthis#liquiddiet#surgery

#throwbackthursday paint & sip edition 😊 these are exactly 1 year apart. (October 26th 2017 / October 26th 2018) I was about at my heaviest weight on the picture on the left, give or take a few pounds. Also this was around when I first started thinking of having WLS. I don't have many pictures of myself at that time but I dug this one up on my best friends facebook. You can literally see how uncomfortable I am and it hurts my heart. I was suffocating. I remember immediately untagging myself from it and being so embarrased. The picture on the right was a few weeks ago at another paint and sip. I didn't even flinch when we finished and the teacher offered to take our picture. I don't feel suffocated anymore. I'm not embarrased to be me. I'm in a much better place physically and mentally and I am so dang thankful for this tool to help me get here 💕 #hellonovember #november #novembergoals #throwbackthursday #throwback #1yearlater #wlsgoals #goals #tranformation  #personal #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic

I have to remember to trust the process. By no means has it been easy. One day at a time is all I can do. Constantly reminding myself of my goal and trying not to compare my journey to others. I definitely struggle with noticing any changes. I think I refuse to see them? I don't know. 🙄 But I am awake today and drinking water. 🤷🏾‍♀️ The universe can't ask for much today, cause I don't have anything to give. • • • #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #bariatricsurgery #verticalsleeve #bariatricsleeve #baritastic #struggleisreal

I’ve been frustrated with this beginning process of weight loss surgery pre approvals. I want to lose weight because that’s what’s good for me. I’m down quite a bit of weight already but have been sabotaging myself a bit so I don’t lose “too much” so I’m not approved. I just hate playing the insurance game because we don’t know what they really look at for final approvals. This quote hit me to the core. I need to appreciate where I am now because I am finally starting the process. I should be thrilled, not frustrated. Just gotta keep the head up and keep trucking along. #WLS #WLSJourney #BariatricSurgery #RNY #RouxEnY #GastricBypass #Health #Weightlosssurgery #Weightloss #VSG #VerticalSleeve #PreOpWLS #Health #Baritastic

Here we go.... another day closer.... I will be doing my official weigh in on the day I start liquids just to have an idea of where I’m at because honestly I have no clue.... I’ve been overweight my entire life so I feel I’m emotionally and mentally ready with a side of nervous! 3 days until i start liquids.... I truly feel it will be easy but we will see how it goes... —— ——- —— #vsg#vsgsurgery#baritastic#bariatricsurgery#bariatric#BariatricPalMX#DrJalil#DrIllan#mexico#tijuana#ready#liquid#liquiddiet#3days#slimbyillan#letsdothis#excited#vsgcommunity#support

A late-ish #transformationtuesday. I've been feeling down because I've been fluctuating the same 3-5lbs for the last week or two and I honestly just needed the reminder of how far I've come. 💪I'm so ansty to get to my 100lbs lost milestone & I feel like i'm so close but so far with the way I've been fluctuating 😂 I keep getting scared that I'm failing but I know I'm not. Things are slowing down scale wise and I just need to embrace and trust the process because my body is still changing, and I know I didn't come this far to only come this far!! Anyways, Happy Tuesday (night) babes! Never forget how far you've come!!! #hellonovember #november #novembergoals #transformationtuesday #tranformation  #personal #workout #gettingfit #beaforeanddurring #beforeandafter #weightloss #weightlossjourney #wls #sleevesisters #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricbabe #vsgbabe #verticalsleevegastrectomy #weightloss #postop #baritastic

Lunch today is a little ground turkey, shredded carrot and snap pea stir fry. I added minced garlic about half way through cooking. It's so tasty, didnt need heavy seasoning, no extra salt or soy sauce. This is also a great quick meal! #baritastic #bariatricsurgery #wls #weightloss #gastricbypasssurgery #gastricbypass #bariatricfood #bariatriclife #vsg #turkey #stirfry #freshfoods

#Throwbackthursday to 2 months ago vs yesterday. slowly but surely looking less and less like a busted can of biscuits 😂 Only about 10-12lb difference here, but I am losing inches and toning up for sure.

Holy crap, am I really less than 100 lbs away from my goal weight already??? Exactly 90 LBS to go and I'm where I need to be to be healthy. And somehow, the gap between now and a fully healthy me feels less and less wide. And I won't stop until I achieve that goal!!! 💪💪💪 #sleeved #sleevedlife #postopvsg #postvsg #vsgliving #vsg #vsgfamily #vsgpostop #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wls #wlssupport #wlsfamily #weightloss #weightlossjourney #losingweight #bariatriccommunity #bariatricsleeve #bariatriclife #sleevesisters #vsgsisters #losersbench #diabetic #diabetes #diabetessupport #watchmeshrink #baritastic
