Shopping cart full of vitamins. I’m childish, so I prefer my vitamins to be sweet chewy gummies... but I’ll have to give these a try. Amazon reviews on #BariMelts didn’t seem too bad.

Follow up doctor's appointment today ...to go over my blood work results. Hoping everything is ok and we can figure out why I'm so tired and lightheaded. Blood pressure looks good today! 👍 . . . #goals #vsglife #sleevedlife #vsgjourney #vsg #wls #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #vsgsupport #weightlossjourney #weightlossstory #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsleeve #vsgfamily #wlssupport #teamlosing #fitlife #transformation

Make some room on the #LosersBench because I’m sleeved!! (September 19, 2018) I was in the hospital for 31 hours even though surgery itself only lasted 1 hour. Recovery was really really hard and painful. I definitely was not ready for the amount of pain I’m in. I had no energy to even pick up my cell phone for over 24 hours. Thank you for all the prayers and positive thoughts y’all were sending my way! ❤️

Happy to be a basic bitch today haha! Also noticed the scale isn't moving again, but that could also be a mixture of not hydrating enough and being backed up. Gonna try the liquid diet again for a few days to see if I can get things moving, including my scale. Any advice would be more than welcome. #sleeved #sleevedlife #postopvsg #postvsg #vsg #vsgfamily #vsgbabes #vsgpostop #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wls #wlssupport #wlsfamily #weightloss #vsgprep #bariatriccommunity #bariatricsleeve #sleevesisters #vsgsisters #losersbench #vsgbabes #diabetic #diabetes #diabetessupport #protein #proteinlatte #pumpkinspice #pumpkinspicelatte

FOR REALS, GUYS?!?! OMG! Thanks so much for following me on this crazy journey! When I started this page in December, I seriously only did so I could experience your guys journeys. Gotta have a page to do that lol. But since then, it's been so much more! I've never met a better community of people with a common goal: supporting and loving ourselves and others. Whether you're pre or post op, whatever part of this journey you are on, I am AMAZINGLY PROUD of you all!

Fit looks different on everybody but it would be insane to work out consistently and to feed your body in a healthy way...all to still hate your reflection and pick yourself apart!

I can’t believe I’m already at 3 months post-op! Time flew so quickly, and I’m already about halfway to my ultimate goal weight. These last 3 months have definitely posed some real challenges, but I’m on the other side and ready to keep going. I plan on hitting the gym on Monday after my dietician appt. Today is my last day of work before a mandatory 8 week contract break, so I’ll be using that time to get into a gym routine. Photos and stats are as of yesterday, since I do NOT have enough time to get all this done before work. Comparing the photos makes it so much more real to me. I know I’ve lost weight. I see the number go down the scale, and none of my old clothes fit anymore. I’m wearing a size L/XL, 12/14 when I used to wear a 2X and 18/20. I can cross my legs and keep them crossed without holding them in place. Walking and stairs are so much easier. But sometimes in my mind, I still see the nearly 300 lb girl. I’m sure most of you who have been through this know what it’s like. But to those who are just starting this process, it’s just so weird to put into words. I’m thinking about seeing a counselor while I’m on my break from work to talk about my journey so far. I’m the happiest I’ve been with my body but there’s no one else I can talk to in my life who has been through this or understands my feelings. That being said, I can’t wait to see where I am in another 3 months! EDIT: Booooooo my last pic didn’t load for some reason. I’ll upload a pic of my recent measurements later today if I have time!

I’ve lost so many inches all over my body in the past year. And I really regret not tracking that. I’m down 115 lbs! 🙏🏻 Even in my hands and wrists. . . A lot of you ask about my tattoo. I got it after my dad passed away last year. I see monarch butterflies everywhere and I never did before he died. It reminds me of him. 🦋 💗 . . . . . #vsg #vsgmexico #gastricsleeve #wls #vsgsurgery #wlstransformation #wlstransformation #weightloss #extremeweightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #gastricsleevesurgery #vsgcommunity #bariatricsleeve #beforeandafter #fitspo #inspo #lowcarb #keto #plantbaseddiet #sleevedlife #transformation

Here is a raw and very real moment. I have really struggled with my body image following WLS. As a BBW at 280+ pounds, I felt full, beautiful, and SAFE. No one could have prepared me for the dysmorphia and physical insecurity / fear I have experienced since hitting my maintenance weight. My excess skin is certainly the scars of battle AND success, but it is also a devastating reminder of self destruction following trauma. Beautiful, fat, and protected by my weight. I felt safe in my size. When I chose to have my weight loss surgery I chose to tackle decades of baggage and no amount of therapy (though highly recommended) could have prepared me. I still feel that being this small is somehow weaker and more fragile. Therapy has helped, but it is just a part of this masterpiece of healing. I’m thrilled by my progress... I marvel at how humans are so resilient! I am resilient. I will never have the words to describe what this means to me. I’m excited to literally have the scars of self destruction cut from by body in exchange for scars I am consciously choosing. . . . . . . . . . #WLS #wlstransformation #wlsprogress #wlsfamily #wlsstrong #wlscommunity #wlsinstacrew #bariaticsurgery #extremeweightloss #wellnessjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossbeforeandafter #weightlossprogress #lifeafterwls #sleevedlife #vsg #vsgfamily #vsginstacrew #pnwwls #queerwls #sasurvivor #bingeeatingrecovery #metoo #drgalvez #bariatricpal #bariatricpalhospitalmx #bodybygalvez #excessskinremoval #beltlipectomy #brachioplasty

#nsv Open house at the high school for my kids. Dreading it because of all the running up and down the stairs but now...about 35 pounds down nailed it!! Fit in all the desks easily, not arriving at classes out of breath, so awesome. #gastricsleeve #sleevedlife

Dinner before and after tonight! Garlic lemon chicken, new potatoes, and broccoli! Super yum and all baked on one pan - the kids even loved it. About 8oz of total food to start and about 4oz leftover 🤷🏻‍♀️

A throwback to almost one year ago. We went away for the weekend for a mini vacation. I remember bringing only my darkest clothes, stretchiest leggings, and flowing tops to hide my belly. Flash forward to now and I no longer dread having to get dressed or leave the house. So much has changed in such a short amount of time. _____________________________________________________ #throwbackthursday #ilovemysleeve #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #vsg #wls #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #sleeved #sleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss

Day 20 - Keeping it real..... from the after surgery, I felt the hunger pains... like real hunger pains. I want one of you lucky people who doesn't feel hungry at all. I wish my stomach had taken that route. I feel like it would have made the post op experience less mentally challenging. #wlsphotochallenge #bariatrix #bariatrixfl #bariatricfam #vsg #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsginstafam #vsgfam #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlscommunity #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #sleeved #sleevedlife #bariatrics #bariatricbabes #bariatriccommunity #wlsjourney #sleevegastrectomy #goaldigger #wlsinstacrew

Be it outside in your neighborhood, at the gym, at a dance studio, or a bootcamp, how can you start to get over your fear of working out in front of others? . "HOW-TO" Tip: *You have to jump in. You have to just start. This fear you have to face head-on.* . THINGS TO TRY ⤵️ . - If you're going to a group class or gym try starting with times that have the LOWEST ATTENDANCE. - If you're working out outside, try hours that'll have MINIMAL TRAFFIC and people out and about. - Join a smaller or PRIVATE GYM. - Join a WOMEN'S ONLY gym. - Have a WORKOUT PARTNER. - Try PRIVATE TRAINING where it will just be you and your trainer. - You can always workout in the comfort of your home, but this won't help get over your fear. . I began shifting my mindset about working out in front of others when I heard these two statements... . (1) "The people in the gym are in shape because they are in gym. And they come consistently. Period." . (2) "People are more focused on themselves than the people around them." . Of course this logic is like "well duh", but it's something so simple that I'd never thought about before. . I used to be so concerned about what people would think about me being out of shape, unfamiliar with gym equipment, only able to jog for seconds at a time, looking lost and overwhelmed. . Now I look at how far I've come. Currently I'm out of town, temporarily working out at a weight training facility here, using the free-weights comfortably and competently (thanks to my trainer back at home), and I don't care the slightest bit when I see someone glancing over at me lol. . That statement has come full circle lol! I've been so focused on my form and pushing myself in my workouts that whoever is around or looking is the least of my concern. . SO NOW BACK TO YOU If you have the same fear of exercising on front of people just as I once did, stop wasting time trying to "build up" the courage to do it and just DO IT. . It will absolutely be uncomfortable at first, but over time you will build your confidence and it will no longer be an issue for you. . Overcoming this fear is through sheer ACTION and CONSISTENCY. . Do your work . Fight for your life . Finish what you started

I found a painted glittery puzzle piece on my walk this morning. It felt lucky so I picked it up. 2 miles and I'm beat. Home drinking my Premier Protein and coffee and relaxing a little before I clean my desk so I can start drawing again!

1 week post-op update!!! I’ve lost a total of 16 lbs from my HW. That’s so amazing!!!! At my HW, I lost and gained it back on and off for months but I haven’t been under 300 for quite some time. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . I know everyone loses weight differently, so I’m not going to compare my successes this first week to others during this time. What works for my body doesn’t work for everyone. I’m still on a full liquid diet for one more week, then finally on to Phase 2: Puréed food. . #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgpostop #wls #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsbeforeandafter #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatrics #sleevedlife #sleevesurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #ff #followforfollowback #celebratingeverysmallvictory

Ok. I started keto 10 days ago at 282lbs. I lost fast during the first week and got down to 274lbs and I was stoked! Weighed myself the other day just to check and it was down to 271!!!!! But today when I weighed myselfor my weekly (late again) #weighinwednesday and now Im at 273.3 which is ok. It's not bad. But it's not where I wanted to be. I am on my period tho. I'm sure that's part of it. I hope so at least. I was really really hoping for 270 or lower. 😭 It's ok tho! I'm NOT letting it get me down! I'm gonna go for a walk and eat good and everything is ok! Plus! I only need to get to 265lbs for surgery and I still have a couple months to get there! #loveyourselfateverysize #icandoit #movemore #moveyourbody #fatandfit #waterislife #healthgoals #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #fitnessgoals #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity #bariatricsurgery #wlsisnotcheating #workhardplayhard #wlsclub #disabledandable #sleeved #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevedlife #wlshopeful #vsgpreop

Six Month Appointment today with my surgeon and he was bloooooown away. My results are the average that people do in a year’s time - down 66% of my excess body weight and muscle to fat ratio made a huge leap! Definitely thankful I’m able to workout and build my muscles along with eating right. Hard work paying off!! So many more things I want to work on over the next three months before I go back and do my metabolic testing! ❤️

So I tried Eclipse Instant Hair Filler to mask the thinning spots on the top of my head and I am pleasantly surprised! 😊 A little sprinkle on the top of my head helps my hair look a little fuller and covers my scalp nicely. We will have to see how it holds up throughout the day. . . . #goals #vsglife #sleevedlife #vsgjourney #vsg #wls #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #vsgsupport #weightlossjourney #weightlossstory #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsleeve #vsgfamily #wlssupport #teamlosing #fitlife #transformation #hairloss
