Man looking at some of these pictures has me all up in my feels. There’s this trail that runs behind our house that we walked a lot last summer and we’ve been using it more the last few weeks now that the weather has been consistently nice and I just kind of can’t believe the difference a year makes how a struggle can become something that’s not even a challenge. My life has changed so much. I NEVER thought I could do this or be here. Just thankful for so much this glorious Sunday ❤️ #transformation #transforming #lifechange #weightloss #fitish #fitness #goalsgoalsgoals #noquit #healthyfoodie #extremeweightloss #goaldigger #iworkout #soicaneat #ifyouchangeyourmindyouchangeyourlife #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #100lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #164lbsdown #coloradolivin #coloradosprings #coloradoliving #summerinthesprings

Passing beautiful sunrises and fields full of horses. It was a peaceful ride. A little slower and sore-r than expected but glad I got up and moving. Hitting 100mi tomorrow since I’ve just missed it 2 wks in a row. Have a great Saturday.
Sporting that Discovery Channel Chinese-knock-off on my ride today. I’m officially cut off from buying bibs and jerseys per my beautiful wife! 😂🤣
So it’s Transformation Tuesday - and; My one year follow up appointment is tomorrow - (my #surgiversary isn’t until #june23 ) I’m interested to see what my Dr has to say - even with a little regain these past few weeks I’m still about #160lbsdown - and that is about 5lbs from my original goal weight, of 180lbs. And that’s not too shabby in a year. I’ve worked really hard; not just to loose weight but to change my lifestyle. (I’m not in a rush.. but) I feel when I get the excess skin removed because of the way I’m built I’ll probably loose another 5-10lbs. But we’ll see. That being said - pretty soon here I’m going to be switching into maintenance mode. Not working out less. 4 days a week is a great balance for me - but working on strengthening and upping my caloric intake in a nutritious way. 🖤 --- • • • #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgeats #wls #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #vsg #weightlosscommunity #bariatriclife #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsglife #onederland #goals #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitfam #bodsqaud #transformationtuesday #tft #sidebyside #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss
New day, new kit! Missed my 100mi mark again due to not feeling to great after a “heavy” dinner but still 97.5 is SO close. Ready for it this week. What are you looking forward to this week?
Yesterday was a dream come true for me. My first NPC Figure Competition and debut. All my hard work and dedication could finally be revealed. What an amazing feeling to hit the stage and feel right at home. Just by making it to the show I felt like a winner. The icing on the cake was placing 5th in Masters Figure +40 & Masters Figure +35. Two medals was just incredible. My Coach @kristinadybdahl has been amazing. Making adjustments as needed to ensure I met my goals. She was right there for every moment. I cannot thank her enough for this amazing opportunity to compete in my first show. Our next show is Nov 2018! This moment made me reflect on how thankful I am that @t_reynolds22 opened a bootcamp where I became a member and this desire began. @lilybriggs thank you for life changing ab torture. We will continue to build and create a better package for Nov. Thank you to everyone for all the gifts, flowers, cards, messages and phone calls. Thank you to everyone who came out to support or those there in spirit. There were a few that flew in from far away just to be there. Your support has been amazing and truly appreciated. I am humbled by this experience and journey. I'm committed to continued growth. Stay tuned! Big thanks to everyone who helped me shine as #39 for this moment. Hair Color Joanna Austria-Trotto Hair Styling, Makeup & Tanning @Missmakeitpop Custom Suit @illusionsbyaggie Jewelry @glamcompetitionjewelry Shoes @fabulicious Nails @queenlaque Continue to live daily with no regrets. Most importantly, never give up on yourself. #npcfigurecompetitor #journey #nevergiveup #brownsugar #160lbsdown
Never would have taken a full body pic at my highest weight. Now, I just don’t care. I’m down 160 pounds and losing more every week. Be proud of your own skin. #160lbsdown #thickgirl #platformsandals #ginger
Let’s talk about that #transformationtuesday - 164 lbs lost and it feels incredible, but don’t let Instagram gloss over the day in day out work this takes. I still struggle with disordered eating and it requires my mindfulness. In the last week I’ve indulged a few too many times whether having fun with friends or letting a little stress get the better of me and while I’m continuing to maintain I really would like to lose another 5, no one is gonna accomplish that by not being diligent. So here’s my diligence reminder for today, one day didn’t get me there and it certainly didn’t get me here. Here’s to today, to getting all the protein and water, working out and purging the kitchen of too many treats! You can all do this if I can. I promise you! #noquit #goalsgoalsgoals #healthyfoodie #extremeweightloss #goaldigger #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #transforming #transformation #lifestyle #inittowinit #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #164lbsdown
Great morning ride with the world rushing past at 18mph. Other cyclists, I’ve been using a phone mount and Strava (which I love) but it’s a little bulky to keep at the head. What cycling computer do you use or recommend?
Made the leap! Felt good about last week and this morning’s ride so I registered for my first triathlon. Turtleman Triathlon Super Sprint at the end of the month. Can’t wait!
The great thing about goals is they do not go away because you did not hit them. It’s only if you give up on them do you truly fail. I set a goal for 100mi in a week this week. Well I did not hit it. BUT I rode 7days this week, 88.2 miles, 25mi in a single ride, increased my speed and have finally set a cadence I can keep without coasting. All on World Bicycle Day! Doesn’t matter if you get up before 10 or after dark. Just get up!
It was conditioning Saturday. No heavy weights. Weights are lighter and test periods are significantly shorter - 10-15 sec max. Cardio is often involves, usually tread/row AMRAPs (as many rounds as possible), sandbag walks/runs, step mill stuff or elliptical HIITs. Today I wanted to share a “leg day” finisher (or even more brutal, day after leg day finisher). It consists of 3 body weight exercises. Set your timer for 15-minutes, this is an AMRAP. 1. 25 air squats 2. 30-seconds pop squat 3. 25 wall squats Repeat - no rest. By the time I got to the third round of this, I wasn’t sure I even had legs. It burns! If you want a better legs and booty, this is part of the answer!
As of today, I officially weigh less then what my ID says. Just barely.. But still! My 16 1/2 year old self totally lied when filling out the paper work for the drivers permit (didn’t we all? Lol) I definitely weighed more than 184 at the time— and honestly the photo, height and weight has not changed on my ID since then (yes, I’m definitely due for an update; it still says I’m 5’6.. lol. but CA DMV *sigh* is the worst) at the time of my permit I was either 190-200. Somewhere in there. So cheers to a literal #scalevictory --- • • • #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #vsgeats #wls #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #wlsjourney #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #vsg #weightlosscommunity #bariatriclife #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsglife #onederland #goals #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitfam #bodsqaud #160lbsdown #weighinfriday
Wore my new suit for the first time today.. feeling pretty good about my progress! Never in a million years would I have dreamed of sharing pictures of myself like this.. but here we go! #twopieceandidontcare #gastricbypass #rny #160lbsdown #thickthighsprettyeyes
Probably discussing something very important... like how to construct the perfect hamburger 😈 #160lbsdown #reality #dainty #everyangle #candid
Up before the sun for 10 miles. Goal this week is 100+. How are you planning to hustle this week?
Haaaaaaappyyyyy mondaaaaaay!!! Happy Monday for me because I finally hit 160 lbs down!! Only took about 5 months from when I hit 150 lbs down. 😱 . . . #keto #ketoweightloss #ketodiet #ketomama #ontrack #160lbsdown #stillgoing #happymonday #newlow #lowestweight
Sweaty selfie with my best friend😍 I did 3 miles in only an hour😱 I remember going to the city park at 400 pounds and struggled to do just 1 mile in an hour, now here I am, a few years later and 160 pounds down I am going 3 miles in only an hour with no struggles or complications! I even felt like I could keep going but didn’t want to overdue it since I’ll be doing a lot of walking at Lake Erie tomorrow☺️ I know most people HATE treadmills and trust me I can understand why lol but I’m a very imaginative person so I always go into my own little world and get lost in my music. This treadmill is the best gift my mom had ever gotten me, it has become my therapy, it’s gonna be the one tool that’s gonna help me succeed🖤
It’s happening, guys. This is almost two months of individualized training and focused nutrition. #changes These are the changes that encourage and let me know that I’m moving in the right direction. I’m doing the right thing. #winning The scale doesn’t reflect what I’m seeing here. #persevere
So I'm making today the last day I weigh in until June 1st. I've been relying way to much on the scale to tell me how I should be feeling. I just have to step back and realize losing 161lbs in just about 9 months is a huge fucking deal. Physically this is the best I've felt since middle school, mentally, well let's just say I'm still working on that. Today is 3 months since my surgery, and down 71lbs since the surgery. #noweighinmay #scaleless #numbersdontdefineyou #fat2fit #gastricbypass #rnyinstafamily #rnysavedmylife #rnycrew #160lbsdown #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnycommunity #rnymen #northdakota #bigfuckingdeal
I’m going to take a moment and “show off” this big NSV for me. A size medium dress, that I do not need shape wear with. That I’m 100% confident in. From a size 3X/24 to a size M/8. All by following a Ketogenic lifestyle. If I can do this, anyone can. #keto #ketogenic #lchf #ketomom #ketoweightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosswithoutsurgery #nogimmicks #willpower #160lbsdown #ilostaperson #size8 #medium #confidence #ifeelpretty #littleblackdress #inmy30s #ilookbetternow #transformationtuesday #nsv
Huge #nsv for me today 😍 I have been stuck indoors studying for finals and decided to take a little break. Watched a girl do a few things with some #aerialsilk and I learned one of the moves 😍 150lbs ago I couldn’t have attempted this! #weightlossjourney #nonscalevictory #learningnewthings #outsidethecomfortzone #pushingmylimits #exercise #160lbsdown #over100lbslost #momstrong #momsofinstagram #studybreak
Dinner 😋 😋 😋 I love fish. Frankie hates it so I make it when I’ve already prepped something else for him. Tilapia and veggies tonight, 380 cals and so delicious! #healthyeating #healthyfood #healthychoices #healthyliving #healthierme #losingweight #weightloss #extremeweightloss #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #fitish #goaldigger #goalsgoalsgoals
Throwback Thursday is really just another day to celebrate. Focusing on all this good! Two summers ago in Chicago miserable and unable to keep up with my family despite really enjoying the trip, to last week - despite some setbacks really doing so well and living my TRUE best life!

For a long time I struggled with dieting, being incredibly lazy, and just lacking the over all motivation to better myself. I focused on the unimportant things in life instead of the end goal which was my happiness and my health. My dad ALWAYS said going down this path continuing to be lazy, cheating on my diets, or putting of my responsibilities that I “wasn’t hurting anyone but MYSELF” . Of course being a young kid I never wanted to listen to what he was saying because I was lazy and stubborn, when all he was trying to do was HELP.. But he was 100% right. What the hell was I thinking??.... Now, I look back, and Thank God that he was always harping on me to get my shit together. Without that constant positive reinforcement or ‘kick in the ass’ when I was lazy/stubborn I would have NEVER gotten to where I am now. I owe ever ounce of my success to my parents, friends and loved ones that surround me. Words will never be able to express my gratitude. ♥️ #healthy #happy #humble #160lbsdown
I’ve missed so many Tuesdays lately and I didn’t want to miss this one today. #transformationtuesday is a real thing these days post weight loss and post plastics. I’ve lost 162 lbs which is better than I ever could have imagined. Real talk plastics recovery is EXHAUSTING and HARD! I had to have surgery again yesterday and while it was a simple thing and took less than 2 hours it does all become a lot to deal with for sure. I’m praying for continued speedy healing and smooth sailing from here on out! Even with a small hiccup this is the best thing after losing the weight I’ve done for me! #plastics #plasticsrecovery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #extremeweightloss #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #lifechanging #grateful #thankful #blessed #strong #fitish #healthier #happier #healthylifestyle #healthyliving
The evolution of Date Night #selfies and #snapchats 😂 I used to spend so much time getting ready and whining about how I looked in certain clothes. Now I’m dressed and ready in 20 mins and ready for fun!

@low_carb_cait posted about making lasagna soup the other day and was kind enough to pass on the recipe and LORD - it’s to die for 😍😍😍😍 (5 net carbs for a one cup serving of the soup) I’ve been eating this exact meal for lunch and dinner the last several days now, 22 net carbs (the monster tea has 5), 360 cals and 27 of protein. I’m at a higher net carb range than I’ve been on this journey and surprisingly today I weighed in at my lowest ever, (162 down total) so just trusting the journey while remaining mindful. Anyway, this is so delicious and comforting which is just what I’m needing currently. #healthy #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthychoices #healthier #healthierme #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #losingweight #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #healthyandhappy #healthyanddelicious #goodeats
Does this count as a #throwbackthursday ? I swear spin has helped me so much throughout this journey! I started 2ish months post op and have been doing it on and off since. You can control the level of the class. I was able to push myself without hurting myself.

Instagram Weight Loss Journal # 5 Body transformation is jarring. I'm having to piece together a whole new wardrobe and going through a bit if identity crisis because if it. After a lifetime struggling with weight and generally looking like a boy, I'm shy of wearing girlish things, or presenting myself sharply. Basically I keep thinking 'lawl, nah. I'm way too manly for cute things.' On top of generally being afraid that dressing to professionally makes me look unfriendly. But I look nice in women's clothes now in a way I never used to and I like it. I just worry my friends (mostly comprised of nerd bros and and cuddle muffins) won't recognize me if I keep changing so much. Now that I've proven I'm a wizard by shape shifting, I'm kinda in a place where I want to experiment with this new look. Something more womanly I guess? Idk man. Feels weird after a lifetime of Anime t-shirts, hoodies and cheap sneakers. I'm probably overestimating my ability to look like a real adult, but still... Just don't like... Freak out if you see me wearing, heels, a short skirt or makeup er whatever. I'm trying some shit out. #bodytransformation #bodydismorphia #genderqueer #160lbsdown #65kgdown #nanimahal #lifestylechange #weightlossjourney #tomboy
Self love is the hardest part of the journey.. 95% of the time all I see is flaws and imperfections but working on loving myself and all if my MURVES(MUSCLES AND CURVES). And thanks to some amazing people in my life who support and encourage me. Remember to build each other up through times and bad. Do not put people down. #wlscommunity #perfectlyimperfect #murves #160lbsdown #weightlossjourney #girlswholift #buildeachotherup #loveyourself
Best part is that before was taken from an “upward flattering angle” - nothing flattering about that. Crazy how even the texture and quality of my skin has changed so much, so much has changed - 161 lbs ⬇️. So thankful for this journey and my health! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 #facetoface #facetofacefriday #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #transformation #healthier #happier
The Packet had asked to do an interview on me about my weight loss a few weeks back and it just came out in this mornings paper. I’m now down just over 160lbs and couldn’t be happier #weightloss #localnewspaper #thepacket #160lbsdown
I’ve said it a million times, but for me on this journey it’s been all about eating food I still love. I. EAT. GOOD. No lie. This was freaking amazing and 330 cals - balance at its finest baby! Also shout out to whichever one of you posted about these BBQ protein crisps. 20,000x better than quest chips and just what I needed. #healthier #healthierchoices #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #weightloss #losingweight #extremeweightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformations #maintenance #lowcarb #lowcarbliving #lowcarblifestyle #lowcarblife #yum #whatsforlunch #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #balance
Is this real life!?!? 😱😱😱 got dressed in real clothes to go to the doc today (ignore my remaining drain under my shirt in the full body pic) and can I just say how strange and amazing this is - I feel so small!?!? 😱😱😱 #extremeweightloss #weightlossjourney #weightloss #plastics #plasticsurgery #plasticsrecovery #whodis #newhair #shorthair #blondie #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #ilost160lbs
Stretch time🤸🏼‍♀️ I usually spend a good 30 minutes stretching after a good workout. It really helps with the soreness from the next day, and I can tell my flexibility has improved a lot. I learned a lot of new things at the class I went to, and really enjoyed it. Definitely going back 😁.. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #weightloss #fitfam #weightlosstransformation #weightlossinspiration #weightlosssupport #wls #vsg #bariatricsurgery #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #wlscommunity #wlssupport #160lbsdown #workingonmyfitness #weightlossjourney   #weightlossmotivation #fitnessmotivation #healthyisthenewskinny #nevergiveup #healthyliving #bodypositive #weightlossstory #bodyfitness   #sleevesurgerylife   #hardworkpaysoff #learningtolovemyself
#transform your #mind and soon the body will #follow 💜 ———————————————— So to my new followers. My name is Courtney. I started my journey roughly two years ago. Heaviest known weight. 310lbs. This was after a month of bravely working hard. And gaining confidence to step on the scale. With the fear. I’d break it. . . . I found comfort in food through loss. Friends and family leaving too soon. Food was the constant thing that made my body feel full. And full. It was getting. I hadn’t noticed I was a 3-4xl in shirts. A 26-28 in jeans. I was filling out. And not the way I wanted. Soon depressed. And too tired to move. I gave up. I kept eating. Hiding. Being depressed. After the loss of my niece. I moved away from everything. My family. My friends. I was alone. I was accepting into #acting #school and, it was fun. But I pushed. And was barley keeping up. It was too much energy. I graduated. And then it started. I needed a job. I started walking #dogs for work, later boarding them at my house. I was #obsessed they pushed me to #hike 4 hours a day. They waited for me to keep up. A year and half later. I now carry them when they get tired. We are #furever a #team and we kill it! - I do Cardio and weight training daily. I’m #learning and #growing daily. Finding new ways to #feeltheburn ..... I’m #motivated and I’m #inspired ——- My goal now. Continue my #fitnessjourney but also help motivate and inspire others on theirs to. #nevergiveup two years of #progress and I’m half my person. #160lbsdown and I have a #life now. #fitfam #vancouverfitness #vancitybuzz #positivevibes #workhard #weightlossjourney
This is the face you make when the THIRD person this week asks if you compete in shows. 😲 . I love #weightlifting and #strengthtraining but I NEVER thought I’d have the physique to compete! Ya girl needs a tummy tuck. BAD 😡, THEN we shall see where things go? 🤷🏽‍♀️ #extraskin #160lbsdown #keepitreal
I think I forgot last Tuesday. I’m not gonna lie - I’m 3 weeks post op plastics today, I have an incision that goes 360 degrees around my lower body and one that goes straight up the middle of my stomach. I’d be lying if I said it’s all a walk in the park, it’s not hard or even painful so much as it’s exhausting. My stamina has taken a real hit but I suppose that’s good as it’s really made me focus on recovery. I’ve lost 160 lbs total at this point (perhaps another five once all the swelling resolves?) and have no real plans to try to lose any more. I’m wearing a size medium shirt down from a 4X at my biggest, more than all of the numbers though and in spite of some current (temporary) surgical discomfort it’s always been about how I feel and I feel great in my body. I do have to have another round of plastics for my thighs and arms but that will be later and in the meantime once I’m released I’ll start lifting for those immediately for strength. I’m happy but most importantly I’m healthy! 💪🏼 it’s hard to believe this is me most days, this healing process leaves you feeling rather disconnected from yourself, I suppose as each day gets better I’ll feel and see more and more that this is actually me? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’ve struggled with body dysmorphia throughout this entire journey I’m really hoping that resolves some as now all my hard work truly is reflected in my shape! #weightloss #extremeweightloss #losingweight #weightlossjourney #healthier #healthierme #healthierchoices #livinginloungewear #recovery #plastics #plasticsurgery #plasticsrecovery #healthyliving #happier #happierandhealthier #100lbsdown #110lbsdown #120lbsdown #130lbsdown #140lbsdown #150lbsdown #160lbsdown #bodydysmorphia #pinchme #imdreaming #exhausted
I just had the biggest shopping fail ever. I picked up this top.. Oh this is cute... put it in my buggy and went on.... bought a few more things and went home. Got them home and I was trying on my shirts... or so I thought. One of them was a romper 😩🤦🏼‍♀️ how did I miss that 😂 well I put it on and.......I don't totally hate it. Maybe this was a sign to try something out of my comfort zone 🤔 now I'll just have to talk myself into actually wearing it out somewhere..... The struggle is real.. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #weightloss #fitfam #weightlosstransformation #weightlossinspiration #weightlosssupport #wls #vsg #bariatricsurgery #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #wlscommunity #wlssupport #160lbsdown #workingonmyfitness #weightlossjourney   #weightlossmotivation #fitnessmotivation #healthyisthenewskinny #nevergiveup #healthyliving #bodypositive #weightlossstory #bodyfitness   #sleevesurgerylife   #hardworkpaysoff #learningtolovemyself
