Well today was my final pre op appointments and all went well. Really grateful they have helped me source vegan vitamins and put together an alternative pre op and post op diet. Today is also the first day of my pre op diet and being able to eat food is so much easier. I took my before photos today, it was so very confronting. I mean, I know I'm fat, super obese or whatever but actually seeing a photo of myself with my belly hanging out... I felt despair. Bring on surgery date, I don't ever want to look like that again. #wls #vsg #wlsjourney #wlssupport #vsgjourney #veganvsg #vsgvegans #vegansleevers #aussievsg #vsgaustralia #gastricsleeve #gastricsleeveaustralia #wlsaustralia
I know I haven’t made many weight loss updates lately - but today I hit two goals! One scale related and one non scale related! . • 83kg is the lightest I can ever recall being in my entire adult life. AND!! I’ve always wanted to buy cute clothes from Dangerfield but could never fit them - and today I walked in there and bought a blouse and skirt in a size 14!! 😱😍 almost bought the cute black velvet dress too haha. • • • • #vsgjourney #effyourbeautystandards #bariatricsurgery #bariatricliving #weightlosstransformation #sleeved #vsg #wls #wlsjourney #spoonie #selflove #selfcare #weightloss #vsgaustralia #vsgbrisbane #gastricsleeve #bodypositive #spoonie #chronicpain #queer #vegan #girlswithtattoos
Another shameless lift selfie 🤣 So blessed that it has this massive floor length mirror bahhaa!!! I've been particularly hungry today, but otherwise in a good mood and feeling positive 😊 #Day111postop #vsg #vsgaustralia #vsgjourney #wls #wlscommunity
I know this going to sound weird, but I am super proud of myself right now... Not because I got out there and killed my workout or because I went super hard on the weights but because I didn’t beat myself up because I wasn’t able to today. If you know me personally you know that is a major accomplishment!!! I can be sooo critical of myself, sometimes to a fault. However, I’m glad to say those days are behind me!!! 💕💕💕💕💕 Of course I had today all figured out. Then the lil rain storm came through and wrecked that. I called myself working on something else and my body SHUT DOWN... I literally don’t remember closing my eyes. Well when I woke up I had a new burst of energy. I literally cleaned every room of the house and finished up dinner for tomorrow. (As you can see Bailey is still up, they let her sleep too long at school today). Now we are about to bathe and head to bed, I’m sure Moana is going to be requested 🙄. Anywho, I am not letting today get me down, I accepted that it didn’t happen and am ready to head into tomorrow just as determined. 💕💕💕💕💕 I can truly say I’m falling in love with this process, happy about MY journey and can’t wait to see the results. 💕💕💕💕💕 Thankful- for learning and growing throughout this process. Grateful- for the wonder changes that are happening. Blessed- beyond what I deserve. 💕💕💕💕 #SleevedAndSlimming #SnatchingSeasonHasBegun #OperationSnatchUnderway #VSGJourney #PostOp #VSGCommunity #VSG #VSGInstaCrew #WLS #WLSCommunity #WLSJourney

I figured I hadn't posted this in a long while. Down to the 230s. Working out and diet is pretty good. Going with the motion of the ocean.

WEEK 7: Still losing like a trooper, but let's be real - I have enough to lose!! This week I've been attempting to eat a bit more than a few spoonfuls, finally figured out my full switch... and how much I dont like finding I'm full. HICCUPS EVERYWHERE!! ________________________________________________ #wls #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgnz #vsgcommunity #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #fattofit #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgfamily #vsgpostop #weightlossjourney #weightloss #vsginstacrew #vsgsurgery #weightlosssurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #lovemysleeve
Photo on the left was after a 90lb. loss . The photo on the right was the highest weight I've ever been and was taken within the last 6 months. The regain was real. As I mentioned in a previous post. The band plus the use of a prescription appetite suppressant and a personal trainer got me down to a size 8. I had build so many good and healthy habits in the picture on the left. The old bad habits started to creep back in after I made a career change. My new place of employment was a work hard play harder environment with plenty of "must attend" happy hours filled with sugary alcoholic drinks and fried foods. At first I could cheat and didn't see much regain. Then slowly but surely the pounds crept back on. My trips to the gym ended as I worked later hours and had a longer commute home to a child who wanted nothing more than my attention and time. The mom guilt was real. I made a few attempts to get control of the regain at this point (the start of the regain) but didn't get much traction. A year at that job and I was ready to leave and get back to the healthy habits.... But things didn't go as planned. I'll continue the my story in an upcoming post. But for now... Here's to second chances.🙌
“Picadillo a la low carb”: Sauté bacon, onion, and tomato. Add 1.5lbs of ground beef and brown. Add bag of cauliflower and bag of cut green beans. Season with adobo, sazón, garlic powder, comino, sea salt, oregano, parsley, and bay leaves to taste. Add 8oz can of tomato sauce. Let simmer for 15 minutes and remove from heat. Makes 8, 1 cup servings. Approximately 287 calories, 13g of fat, 4g of carbs, and 34g of protein. #mealprep #picadillo #applewatch #closingcircles #myfitnesspaldiary #macros #weightlosstransformation #healthyeating #keto #ketofriendly #ketodiet #ketogenic #mangagastrica #vsg #gastricsleeve #vsgjourney #verticalsleeve #vsgcommunity #sleevegastrectomy #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsurgery #weightloss #wlsstory #wlsstories #fightingobesity
Dinner Was A Great Blend Of Low Carb Eating Meets A More Carby Intake. I Made A Chicken Cattiatore Tonight. Those Low Carbing Can Simply Enjoy The Chicken & Veg Portions Or The Higher Carb People Can Add In A Little Pasta.

Weigh in day: I am trying to weigh myself less now that my weight loss has slowed down. Over the past week I've challenged myself to eat better and increase my protein intake and it's already made a big difference. Every time I've moved down to the next kilo, it's taken a week or two of yo-yoing in that kilo range to the next one and even then, it's only just and the cycle repeats. I lost 1.1kgs (2.4lbs) in the past week with the drastic increase of protein in my diet. Only 8kgs (17lbs) until I reach my surgeon's 12 month target (I'm 7 1/2months post op). I've already dropped two obesity class levels, lost 17.2 points off my BMI and decreased my body fat percentage by 20.5 points.
"Baked Ricotta"(puree stage) So I made this little piece of heaven. This pureed food stage is a (bitch) sorry... But this is amazing and I don't even like ricotta cheese... I made enough for five days cause I can only eat about 2oz and yes it does take a while it's very filling so remember small bites. INGREDIENTS: 8 oz Ricotta cheese 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1large egg beaten 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tsp Italian seasoning 1/2 tsp dried chopped onion, or ( 1/4 tsp onion powder) Salt and pepper to taste ( I used Himalayan salt) 1/2 cup marinara sauce ( simply nature tomato basil) is what I used 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese ( for cheese mixture) 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese ( for on top) Olive oil cooking spray. Direction: Pretty much everything but the 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce, need to be mixed together in a bowl. Once the cheese mixture is done, spray the olive oil cooking spray on your baking dish. Smooth the cheese mixture in the baking dish and pour the marinara on top. Finally sprinkle the rest of that mozzarella cheese on that bake at 400' f for 20 to 25 minutes.... And enjoy!!❤️❤️❤️❤️#vsg #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #gastricsleeve #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #weightloss #healthymom #vsgrecovery #vsggaspains #vsgpain #healthyeatinghabits #strongwomen #strong #vsgeat #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #keto #lowcarb #wlssupport #weightlosssupport #bariatricsupport #verticalsleeve #vsgpostop #lifeaftervsg #wls #vsglife #teamlosing #pureestage #vsgpuree
Three month post op visit complete! They said that I’m doing GREAT! Man does it feel good to get that validation. From Obese III to Obese I i am more than on my way to being classified as over weight three months from now. Another mental check that this isn’t the end - if anything I’m only (barely) halfway there. Cheers to a GREAT day!. . . . . . #vsg #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation
It’s nice to remind myself (frequently) that even when the pounds aren’t coming off.. the inches are. Just gotta keep on keepin on. #goodbyescale #14weekspostop #vsg #vsgutah #vsggoals #vsgjourney #wlswlscommunity #wlsbeforeandafter #vsgbeforeandafter #happyhealthy
Ketosis is another positive side effect of weight loss surgery because your body can't tolerate many carbs and we need to eat high protein meals. So what is ketosis? Low carbohydrate levels cause blood sugar levels to drop and the body begins breaking down fat to use as energy...causing ketones in the bloodstream. These test strips are the perfect way to test of you're in a state of ketosis, aka far-burning mode! 👍 #goals #vsglife #vsgjourney #vsg #wls #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #vsgsupport #weightlossjourney #weightlossstory #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsleeve #vsgfamily #wlssupport #ketosis #keto #lowcarb
Meal prep! Egg muffins (per tin): 1 egg, 1tbsp feta cheese, and 1tbsp of sautéed bacon, onion, and tomato. Top with salt and pepper to taste.

Food is the most abused anxiety drug and exercise is the most underutilized antidepressant 🍔 If I had of read this last year I would have laughed and thought ‘clearly they have never eaten chocolate’ 😏 BUT over the last few weeks I have proved to myself just how important exercise is for my mood and mental health - this month I have made a huge effort to exercise every day, of course there have been days where I couldn’t be bothered, some days I felt extremely irritable and pissed off, days where work seemed to go forever and all I wanted to do was go home, but I showed up and felt 110% better for it 👊🏻 Never in my life did I think I would enjoy exercising and actually want to go to the gym but here we are! ———————————————————————————— #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssupport #weightlossdiary #weightloss #weightlossjourney #losingweight #fitfam #wlsjourney #exercise #gastricsleeve #gastricesleevesurgery #vsgqld #wls #changingmylife #bariatricsurgery #healthandfitness #goals #clapforyourself #weightlosssurgery #bariatricbabes #bariatric #wlsaus #smashyourgoals #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgaustralia #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew
I've always been curious, it's time to find out more than what speculation and my own research can give me. Bet you $10 bucks that I'm more Scottish than Native American.

Omg! I’ve have had the munchies like ALL DAY. It’s the first day since surgery that I am actually feeling hungry. I feel like I ate WAY more today then my sleeve should even allow at 2 weeks post op! And to top it all off, I went to the kitchen, now at 10:15 at night, just to fill up my water, but ended up eating like half a cup of left over mashed potatoes from dinner and now I feel like I’m going to die. 😭 Live an learn... live and learn ______________________________ VSG 6/6/2018 #weightlossjourney #wls #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #wlspostop #vsgpostop #postopvsg #wlsfamily #vsgfamily #weightlosssurgery #sleevedlife #verticalsleeve #vsghouston #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgfriends #vsgtexas #wlsjourney #wlshouston #wlssupport #vsgsupport #wlsinstacrew #vsgfam #wlsfam #tinytummy #weightlossherotribe #weightlosshero #WLHtribe
Started running a few weeks back. Never EVER thought I’d run. I started off taking about 45 mins to do this route and have shaved 8 min off already. Love this surgery #wls #vsgjourney #sleevesuccess
Went for a 3 mile walk today since o wasn't able to get to the gym. Theres so many lovely things to see along the way. This is a picture of one of my neighbor's rose gardens only my walking route. This picture doesn't do the flowers any justice. I honestly wonder if they might be a botanist or one sort of another. Each species and hybrid of rose is clearly labeled at ground level and I've lost count of just how many kinds there were! . While I love the gym, at times i just need to walk around and see things like this. It makes me feel at peace while I'm technically still exercising. . Which brings me to a question: do you consider going for a walk to make sure you get your steps in as exercise l? Or is it just a "this is what I should get, as well as exercising "? I'm struggling with whether or not to go with "something is better than nothing", or go with those that say that if you arent gonna go all the way, you may as well stay home. What do you guys think? What kind of physical activity rules do you try to stick to? . . . #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgsurgery #vsgjourney #vsginstafam #vsgfamily #vsgcommunity #wls #wlsfamily #wlsinstafam #wlsinstacrew #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlsfamily #exercise #gettingmystepsin #doyougym #walkingoutside #health #healthy #healthyliving #tryingtoloseweight #fitbit #fitness #floralphotography #sights #photography #botany #roseamongthorns
One of the reasons I decided to lose weight & live a healthier life is so I can feel comfortable doing things like this with my kids. The healthier I get, the more energy & confidence I have to be a good, fun, involved mom. I still don’t have a “perfect” summer body, but I don’t want to wait until then to enjoy swimming with my littles. ☀️💕 . . . . . #weightloss #weightlossjourney #healthylife #happylife #healthymom #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #progress #target #targetstyle #targetswim #oldnavy #oldnavystyle #oldnavyswim

End of day 1! My macros are a bit off, not by much, but still. I kicked ass at the gym, and even had enough energy to come home and organize the mess of my home. Tomorrow I will CLEAN after the gym.
