“Meal” number 2: chicken noodle broth. Smells like Raman noodles #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgpreop
5 years and 50 pounds ago, I ran the FoamFest 5k. I came in second in the 8th heat. I started in the second heat. I’ve always been big, but I’ve always been active. Maybe that’s why all my blood work is so good. #sleevegastrectomy #vsgpreop #running

Looking for other Phoenix area weight loss/bariatric patients/pcos ladies for more support!! I’d love to meet new people and have a bigger local support system!! We’ve lived here 2 years and making new friends in your 30’s as a stay at home Mom has been hard for me #vsg #vsgcommunity #azmom #bariatricsurgery #pcos #phoenixmoms #sahm #vsgpreop
Had a great first week making changes in preparation for surgery! Went from 4-6 sodas a day to 1 a day! Gave up energy drinks! And lowered my calories! Feeling pretty good! #vsgpreop #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #weightloss #weightlossjourney #newme #healthierme2018
I'm so English it's scary. Even with sun lotion on I go nice and brown on the bottom of my arms and then just RED. However, day 6 of #LondonWLSMeetupChallenge and I didn't drink a single beer! Tomorrow though is my 2nd and final pre-arranged social engagement. I'm out having a "day sesh" with one of my best friends. After that it's beast mode for 14lbs off before London. I'll weigh in tomorrow morning 👍🏻
Duper struggling with my metformin. Definitely understand how it helps you cut down on sugar and carbs... the consequences of your body trying to stabilize your insulin just aren’t worth it! How long were you sick? #metformin #pcos #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #wlsfam #vsgpreop #vsgpostop #vsgpcos
Today started off great. Got all geared up to take my little furrbaby on an adventure. Less than 10minutes into our walk my dog was attacked by these 2 dogs. #ThankGod for my neighbors who came to our rescue. Needless to say adventure over but it's still #HappySunday . . . . . . . . . . . #VSG #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosssupport #weightlosssurgery #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #gastricband #lapband #vsgpreop #vsgpostop #sleeved #sleevedlife
Anyone try Enlightened Ice Cream? What did you think of it? How does it compare to Halo Top? www.youtube.com/thezenamaria #vsginstacrew #vsgpreop #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #wlsinsta #wls #wlscommunity #vsgsisters #vsgbabes #vsgyoutube #vsgyoutubecommunity #wlsyoutubers #wlsyoutube #enlightenedicecream #halotopcreamery
Pre op Diet I have been taking time away from social media to give myself a chance to be in a better headspace. For the most part it has been effective. I want so much for this surgery to help give me back control over my health, that I need to remind myself that my journey is going to be different and that’s ok! I have a very low BMR, which is going to impact on my plateaus etc. I will need constant reminding that I am ok with being a turtle, after all they are one of my favourite creatures. I will be working closely with my dietitian who assures me, that any hurtle we come across, we will tackle head on and find our way around it. Pre surgery had already been such a learning curve. I’m nervous to see what being on the other side brings. . . . . #preopvsg #vsgpreop #vsgaustralia #wlsaustralia #preopdiet #chooseyourhard 💪🏼 #optifast #vlcd
This is what torture looks like. On a road trip for work into Germany. First stop Luxemburg and Dunkin Donuts. Willpower won out and I left with only a cup of coffee. #preop #preopdiet #vsg #vsgpreop #vsgcommunity #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeve #wls #wlsvsg #wlscommunity #foodtorture
Please... share your opinions!! I’m contemplating surgery. I am unsure if gastric bypass or vertical sleeve would be right for me. Please tell me what you chose and the pros and cons of your experience. Where are you at now in your experience, what surprised you, what was easy, what was hard, what do you wish you’d know prior to surgery, would you do it again?!?!

Picked up more post op goodies today with this cutie. One week officially and we will be in Tijuana. Excited doesn’t cut it anymore! . . . . #vsg #vsgpreop #alighterme #vsgmexico #vsglife #july1st #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlsjourney #preopliquiddiet
Anyone have vision problems after surgery? #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
I set two personal records today. I've earned this. #vsgpreop #sleevegastrectomy #fattofitjourney #gym #gymlife #crunchfitness
I just learned that there is a thing called slider foods. Typically these are foods that goes down easy with little or no restriction like popcorn or chips. Not everyone will have the same slider foods. This can cause your weight to slow or regain. #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
1st time having crystal light. I like it definitely helps me to get my water in. * I just noticed that it as caffine. Is this the right one. #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
Living my healthiest life thanks to the decision that made the biggest change in my life 💯🎉👏🏼#vsgchangedmylife #cuban #cubana #wls #vsg #vsgpreop #vsgpostop #weightloss #weightlossjourney #beforeandafter #instafit ••••300lbsVS150lbs••• #keto advocate. I lost a lot of my excess flab weight by pushing myself into the ketogenic lifestyle, and in turn the remaining skin has been drastically minimal.
Down 4 lbs since June 17th. I’ve made some minor changes: before I was drinking 4-6 sodas a day, now I’m down to one. I’ve also cut my calories down to 2100! I’m trying to make the changes now before surgery!#vsgpreop #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #nevergiveup #healthierme
I ended up ordering this set from Walmart. #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
Heading out on a business trip while on the pre-op diet. Wish me luck! One week in Germany. Luckily I am allowed lean foods as well. #preopdiet #preop #vsgpreop #wlspreop #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy
So after yesterday’s fail of trying soft foods, with your help and advice I’ve decided to go back to liquid/puréed foods. I’m going to be really strict on myself for getting my liquids and protein in because I’ve done terribly so far. I also bought some necessary things to keep me on track: Isopure protein powder Food scale 3 & 6oz bowls B12 Biotin & a new strainer #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgcommunitysupport #vsgpreop #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #vsgsisters #vsgeats #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsglife #vsgfam #vsgfamily #vsgliving #vsgproblems #vsggoals #vsggirl #vsgbeauties #vsgbabes #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlstories #wlssupport #wlsstrong #wlsfamily #wlslife #wlscrew #wlsinstacrew #bariatricbabes
Day 4 & 5 of #LondonWLSMeetupChallenge have been good. I just keep forgetting to take photographs. I'm holding off until Monday to weigh myself. I find it really easy to eat well and be good during the week, but weekends are my weakness. I love grilling and sitting in the garden with a beer. I'm not sure what I'm going to do this weekend, but I will remain accountable. I'm going to lose 14lbs by the time we all meet in London in July!
If you were required to do a liquid diet how much weight did you loose? #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
39 days left till my required 90 day wait is over and they can submit to my insurance for approval 😬😱 it is going by faster than I thought it would! QUESTION once you were put in for insurance approval, how long till you had surgery??? From day 1 till surgery for my husband was 4 months and 2 days including the 90 day wait. If mine is similar I could be having surgery the first week of September. #vsgpreop #vsg #vsgcommunity #pcosmamavsg
First off, I’m ok. But it’s times like these that I would turn to food and just stuff my face with tacos and brownies and whatever else made me calm down. It’s probably a good thing that right now I can barely eat anything anyway so I have the opportunity to really check myself and my feelings as far as food goes. I just have to keep remembering that food is fuel. .. . . #vsg #vsglife #vsgpreop #vsgpostop #wlspostop #postop #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosstransformation #lgbtweightloss #lgbt #vsgeats #vsgfood #nsv #nonscalevictory #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgbeforeandduring #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabe
Anxiously waiting to get my cpap/apap machine. Looks like at least another week before I’ll be able to schedule an appt. I’m going to be the annoying patient who checks in because I want this machine pronto. #sleepapnea #vsgpreop #cpap #cpapmachine #pcosmamavsg
Today I saw my regular primary care doctor. Started pre op testing with him. They did my EKG today and ordered my labs and chest X-ray. Also let him know about my recent diagnosis of sleep apnea 👍 #vsgpreop #vsg #vsgsurgery #pcosmamavsg
At my desk thinking about food. Anyone tried sugar free katchup and bbq sauce? Im hungry lol #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
2 decaf shots of espresso with caramel premier protein. Lort where have you been the last 8 days! Like heaven in my mouth. If you like coffee and haven't tried this you're missing out. #vsgpreop #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgmexico
OK guys this is what I'm going with for my multi vitamin. 2 a day #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
The past month has been rough! The scale has been moving very slow, but then the past 2 days I’ve lost 5 pounds.....mind fuck! ———— I haven’t let the slow moving scale get me down, this is all a process and it’s normal to not lose a pound everyday, but it still doesn’t make it easier. I’ve ensured to stick with my routine and not let my binge eating bring me back down to “that place” I was before. Slow and steady wins the race. ———— Pulled out this shirt in my closet that I haven’t tried on since January and it didn’t fit back then! I’ll tell you what, my before photos bring me back to reality when I think I’m not losing any weight. So glad I took a photo in this shirt during my pre-op diet! Seeing the photo of me wearing this shirt today made me so happy and makes me feel skinny! And of course is a reminder as to why you can’t let the number on the scale define you as a person. • • #vsg #vsg2018 #vsgpreop #preopvsg #postopvsg #vsgpostop #vsgeats #vsglife #vsgliving #vsgjourney #vsgmeals #vsgmealprep #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsginstafam #vsgfood #wls #wlspreop #preopwls #postopwls #wlspostop #wlseats #wlslife #wlsliving #wlsjournal #wlscommunity #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery
Tired AF but feeling lighter. Seeing those fat roles diminish slowly.

Picture this— the year is 2011, a young girl from Long Beach, California impulsively decides to become a redhead because the boy she was madly in love with decided he loves redheads. 🙈 not a proud admission and definitely not a good color. Happy to know that 7 years later I’m getting it on the hair and life fronts. Never again Ahahahahaha. Also thanking god that Kosta doesn’t like redheads. 🤣. #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsg #vsginstacrew #keto #lowcarb #lowcalorie #Weightlosssupport #WLSsupport #VsgInstacrew #BariatricSupport #VSGofinstagram #Verticalsleeve #VsgPostop #VsgPreop #VSGBeforeandafter #BariatricBabes #Lifeaftervsg #vsgjourney #lapband #WLS #Wlstransformation #Vsglife #Weightloss #bariatriclife #Teamlosing #Fattofit #facetofacefriday
I think the strips have been discontinued so I'll get the chewables #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgpreop #gastric #bypass #sleeve
I have lost 2 pounds in 4 days! Close to my surgery goal. 9 more days until my surgery. #vsgjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weighin

Cardiologist visit. 2nd EKG came out normal but I need to go back for an ultrasound/echo on July 5th. Praying it all goes well!!!

Happy #facetofacefriday I have to break down and buy a pair of pants/jeans to wear one day a week - for work (I do hair on Saturdays). • I was hoping I didn’t have to buy any until the end of summer. • Thankfully, 12’s are falling off me. 10’s are baggy and the only 2 pairs I have are too holy for work 😉. • I have a wedding party tomorrow- they usually have a photographer there shooting these moments. Thankfully I’m 83lbs lighter for these moments. I’m still anxious for it and have been worrying about it all week. •
New vitamin routine. I've been using the chewable Flintstones vitamins since day 1 and I finally finished the surplus my husband bought. Let me say there's absolutely nothing wrong with Flintstones and my bloodwork has never been off I just wanted to try something different. . . . . . . . . . #VSG #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosssupport #weightlosssurgery #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #gastricband #lapband #vsgpreop #vsgpostop #sleeved #sleevedlife
It's just the beginning of a long and challenging journey. 10 pounds down! Been on the pre-op diet for a week now. I'm feeling great. 2 weeks until surgery! #facetofacefriday #f2ff #f2ffriday #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgpreop #preop #preopdiet #wlspreop #wlsvsg #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #vsgjourney
Ok VSG community I need your input. Tonight’s dinner was soft fish and Broccoli/Cauliflower cheese tots. My post op plan is as follows: Day 0-3 clear liquids Day 3-14 full liquids Day 14 - 35 puréed & soft foods BUT EATING HURTS SO MUCH 😣 When did y’all begin soft foods??? #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgcommunitysupport #vsgpreop #vsgjourney #vsgbabe #vsgsisters #vsgeats #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsglife #vsgfam #vsgfamily #vsgliving #vsgproblems #vsggoals #vsggirl #vsgbeauties #vsgbabes #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlstories #wlssupport #wlsstrong #wlsfamily #wlslife #wlscrew #wlsinstacrew #bariatricbabes
I’m as excited and ready as ever for my vsg. People have been asking me if I’m nervous and my answer 9/10 times is no. I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever and I’m just ready to rock and roll. Lately though, I’ve had some negative thoughts come creeping on in. What if this doesn’t work? I know it sounds dramatic. Come on Dakota, they’re literally cutting out 80% of your stomach. How can it NOT work!? Well, when nothing has worked my entire life ... it makes me wonder. The thought of failure is absolutely terrifying, but I can think of a few more things scarier than that. What if I break that chair? What if I don’t fit into that booth? What if that kid says all too loudly to his mother “why is she so much bigger than you”? I have heard some of the cruelest and most malicious shit come out of people mouths just because I’m fat. I have spent my WHOLE entire life missing out on things because of “what if?” Its truly time to take my HEALTH into my own hands. I will not fail because I won’t let myself fail. My future and my life are on the line and I’m more ready than ever. . . . #chunkyyetfunky #plussizefitness #pcosweightloss #girlsthatlift #biggirlsworkouttoo #preop #bariatricsurgery #fuckingbelieveinyourself #bodypositive #bingeeatingrecovery #bed #vsg #plussizeathlete #pcosfighter #pcosproblems #pcosdiva #pcoswarrior #bed #pcosawareness #pcos #wls #teamlosing #vsgpreop #vsgnewbie #vsgcommunity #goaldigger
