I can’t believe today I’m 1 year post op from my arm lift!!! The skin I was left with on my arms affected me loads didn’t have confidence to wear strapless of sleeveless tops with out a cardigan, I would have to buy clothes 2 sizes too big just so my arms would fit, then my fab surgeon done the operation and I’m soooo happy, best thing I ever did!!!!! #excessskin #excessskinremoval #weightlossjourney #weightloss #brachioplasty #newarms

Starting to see ribs in my chest.... Really plastics can't come soon enough but I know I still have a while to wait until I'm covered. #wlscommunity #vsgaustralia #vsg #mumlife #postop #wls #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgbeauties #wlsbabes #vsgblogger #wlsblogger #wlstransformation #wlsbrisbane #sleevelife #auswlsfam #auswlsbabes #excessskin #ribs
Here it is. The only picture I can find of me at my peak weight. Looking at this photo makes me feel all the things at once. Looking at this photo reinforces that I had been far bigger than my offical weigh in of 210kgs (463lbs). To be honest, my guesstimate of 240kgs (530lbs) may even be an underestimate 😭 #throwbackthursday 130(Ish)kgs (310lbs) difference. Thanks for being such a trooper, dude.
My tummy tuck journey began today! Since it's a topic that interests a lot of people, I'll be posting updates as I go along. A little on my backstory if you don't know. I was overweight my whole life until I joined WW in Jan 2015 after baby 1. I lost about 25lbs before I unexpectedly got pregnant with baby 2. Luckily I only gained about 5lbs with him. After his birth in April 2016, I joined WW again and lost the rest of the weight for a total of 92 lbs. I made Lifetime in April last year so I've been at my goal weight for a year. After losing all that weight and having two kids, I was left with significant excess skin on several parts of my body, my abdomen being the most problematic. My breasts and thighs are saggy also but I'm not sure yet if I'm having any work in those areas.  It will depend on the cost. I thought getting 3 different opinions would be helpful so today I went to see the first surgeon.  He said with me being at a healthy weight and having zero health problems (I'm so fortunate), makes me an ideal candidate for surgery. He told me that I don't even need any tightening of my abdominal wall, so that'll save me a little green and make recovery easier. The person who figures up the pricing was out on vacation so I won't have any numbers until next week. I'm so excited to get the ball rolling on this! I'll post a "before" photo or maybe even a video sometime before I have the surgery the end of April. #tummytuck #skinremoval #looseskin #mommytummy #lifetime #excessskin #excessskinremoval #weightmaintence #weightwatchers #smartpoints #wwfreestyle
Found this amazing black bean pasta at Aldi and immediately the cook in me was ready to experiment. So tonight I made Mexican black bean pasta with cilantro and a dollop of fat free sour cream. I was creative with this one and shockingly it was super good. This would have been a complete plant based meal if I hadn't added the sour cream, but this one meal was 45g of protein!! Now I have to try the other two pastas and see what I come up with. #myweightlossjourney #mygastricbypassjourney #lifeaftergastricbypass #lifewithfitness #fitnesslife #fitmama #fitsisters #fitfam #ethnichealth #anxietysucks #broweyedbeauty #livingbeyondmyfeelings #healthymama #excessskin #weightlossskin #futuresnatchedbody #littlebigbody #accountability #almostplantbased #pastadinner #coloredpasta

Excess skin realness!! Hate it and have to continually remind myself it’s only temporary #c4kgoesbariatric #excessskin #wavingwings #cannotwaittogetrifofthem
Tried to use the ice maker and noticed it was blocked by this beautiful build up of crushed ice. Without hesitation I pulled it out the freezer and started eating it like a burrito. Best ice I've had in a long time. Only a true ice eater would under. #myweightlossjourney #mygastricbypassjourney #lifeaftergastricbypass #lifewithfitness #fitnesslife #fitmama #fitsisters #fitfam #ethnichealth #anxietysucks #broweyedbeauty #livingbeyondmyfeelings #healthymama #excessskin #weightlossskin #futuresnatchedbody #littlebigbody #accountability #beachbody #coachinaction #inspirationalquotes #inspireeachother #iceeater
Right at 6 weeks post-op and I can finally wear jeans again. It can be a bit uncomfortable because my lower back and stomach are still swollen, but mostly it’s not bad and I can wear jeans fairly comfortably. I’m sure you’ll still see me rocking dresses and leggings for a while too though. 😛 x Before surgery I wore a size 2 or 4. I was at a weird spot where a 4 was too big for my hips but fit the excess skin and a 2 fit my hips but was too small for the skin. It was no fun! x After surgery I’m super happy to say I’m wearing the same sizes, just trying to figure out which jeans accommodate my new booty and body shape. I see some jean shopping in my future! x In the pic I’m wearing a size 2. You can see the difference surgery made with the skin. It went from spilling over to giving me a much smoother silhouette (which is what I wanted so yay!). But I’ve always wanted to wear jeans that just fit me, you know. No love handles, no covering up skin or FUPA or whatever else, just fit my hips and laid flat. I finally got to experience that and it’s fantastic!

So excited to try this. Probably one of my biggest fears/stresses about losing weight is all the loose skin I’m gonna have. I haven’t treated my body well and 26lbs down I can already Tell it’s something I’m gonna deal with. But I’ve heard that this can help your skin bounce back after #weightloss . Plus it’s also good for soooo many other reasons, hair, skin, nails and lots more. . . . . . #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #looseskin #looseskinproblems #vitalproteins #collagen #healthylifestyle #glutenfree #dairyfree #letsseeifthisworks #stayvital #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #weightlossstory #excessskin

Leg Day! Trying to get these legs in shape. I had the excess skin removed on November 13th. The swelling still is there and after a full day of sitting at my desk only makes it worse. They were pretty swollen today. So what part do I work? Legs!!! Note to my legs: Your swelling does not affect me. I will get you in shape with or without your cooperation. #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #bodybuilding #bodytransformation #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #excessskin #extremetransformation #hardwork #workout #dedication #instafit #beforeandafterweightloss #fitness #fitnessjourney #gains #grind #eatcleantraindirty #trainhard #weightlossjourney #grindmode #gym #gymrat #extremeweightloss #determination #deadlift #legday #squats #fitnessgoals
Was craving toast with tomatoes and melted cheese. But I’m a few days bread free trying to be good. For years and years I ate bread 1-2 times a day, it’s a habit, I think it was just the way I grew up. Toast for breaky & sandwich for lunch. Nothing beats fresh bread!! Yumo but when I had the gastric sleeve surgery I still occasionally ate bread but it makes me feel horrible most the time so I need to steer clear! Old habits die hard! No bread since my birthday! Day 3! You got this Marie ❤️. #weightloss #weightlossjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #fatloss #vsg #vsgcommunity #excessskin #pregnant #healthylifestyle #healthypregnancy

Life transformed. At my highest weight of over 500 pounds, I could not move without losing my breath. I could hardly participate in life. All I wanted to do was eat. My life revolved around food. Food was literally my first priority. Thankfully I decided to make my future and my health my first priority. After 11 months of preparation, I had RNY surgery. I changed my entire mindset. I have not had soda, fast food...any of my vast amount of trigger foods in 7 years. I started working out and making fitness a huge priority in my life. I believe I have literally saved my life. ❤️#proud #lifechanging #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossinspiration #bodytransformation #bodypositive #bodyfitness #fitnessjourney #gastricbypass #healthylifestyle #losingweight #fatloss #strongwomen @shape #lovemyshape @strongfitnessmag #mystrongmoment @cosmopolitan #transformationtuesday #transformation @womenshealthmag #beforeandafter #weightlosstransformations @goldsgym @redbookmag #wls #trainandtransform #excessskin #findyourfit #healthylife #obesityhelp #chronicpainwarrior #crpswarrior #obesitysurvivor

Aujourd'hui, j'ai revu mon chirurgien après 9 mois sans pouvoir le voir (imprévus en tout genre, de son côté comme du mien). Le bilan que nous avons établi ensemble était très positif, et lorsque je l'ai remercié à la fin du rendez-vous, il m'a dit : "Je n'ai fait que vous enlever un morceau d'estomac. Tout le reste, vous l'avez fait vous-même. Vous pouvez être fière de vous." _________ Prochaine étape : 1er juin, première visite chez le plasticien pour la chirurgie réparatrice. Nous verrons ensemble si je commence par la brachioplastie (chirurgie permettant d'enlever l'excédent de peau au niveau des bras) ou par l'abdominoplastie (même chose, mais au niveau du ventre). En attendant, on se motive à fond pour avoir la meilleure santé physique possible, car la convalescence sera longue ! #lovemysleeve #vsg #goodday #fromfattofit #excessskin #peauquipend #beurk
Finding B A L A N C E in the midst of it all #WeightLossSuccessStory #weightlossjourney #transformationtuesday #ExtremeWeightLoss Life After Extreme WeightLoss- Excess Skin and Finding away to still still Love the Skin you're in. WeightLoss is different and looks different for everyone. I'm coming up on my appointment/consultation for excess skin removal. #stressed And I've got a laundry list of concerns, fears and misconceptions about excess skin removal surgery. And to top it off ....Insurance doesn't cover the procedure. Frustrating #ExcessSkinRemoval Here's some realness ...The other side of Weight-loss When you no longer fit your skin. The subject no one wants to talk about. WeightLoss doesn't always end up in a bikini 👙 #Realtalk 💯 No pity party here.

This photo represents the #transformation that has taken place for me after already losing about 100 lbs and today. I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again: I wish I had taken more pictures throughout my weightloss progress. On a different note, today is the first day I've worn "real" pants (with buttons and a zipper) since my #excessskinremovalsurgery on December 13. So I'm pretty excited about that. I had a rough recovery due to major complications but my swelling seems to have all but subsided at the 9 week point. At least one part of this worked out in my favor and it appears I've been able to bid #swellhell adieu earlier than anticipated. #transformationtuesday #tummytuckgonewrong . #excessskinremoval #excessskin #weightloss   #extremeweightloss #betterme #fattofit  #tummytuck #abdominoplasty #weightlossjourney #fatloss #weightlosssuccess #fitness #fatbegone #fitspiration #weighttraining #hardwork  #motivated  #girlsthatlift #healthy #weightlossmotivation #weightlossinspiration #weightlossbeforeandafter #pickyourhard
