Never posted yesterday’s update from my camp. So week2 I worked my ass off and wanted more 😬 but I need to stop complaining. I’m just about halfway there. I have 4weeks to lose the rest of my 20lbs and then I get a week break and I roll into my second challenge. I know from here on it will be small numbers so I can’t let it mess with my mind! On week 3 and I see results more in definition of my muscles. #jessbrag #bariatriclife #wls #wlslife #weightloss #gastricsleeve #gymrat #weightlossjourney #vsglife #vsgfamily #goals #determination #fitlife #vsg #weightlossstory #myjourney #transformations #loserbench #proteinlife #vsginstafam #vsgsupport #wlssupport #wlsfam #vsgstrong #vsgjourney #sleevelife #vsgcommunity #progress #thecamptransformationcenter

It’s #transformationtuesday - overalls edition! On the left, I weighed around 300 pounds and was dying to wear overalls. I wore them to the park that day and then never again. I felt fat, uncomfortable and they were really unflattering. Now?! I rock my overalls all the time! When I lost weight, more than anything, I wanted to rock some overalls. ✌🏻😊 :: :: #VSG #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgliving #vsgfamily #vsgcrew #vsgfriends #wls #wlsfam #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsvsg #wlspostop #losersbench #gettinghealthy #gettingfit #weightlossjourney #fitspo #wlssupport #vsgsisters #weightloss #nsv

Let’s do a slightly different #transformationtuesday 💪🏻💪🏻 So you see them thighs though! I always focused on my lower body because even at my highest weight I had “chicken legs” The before picture was back in December at 145lbs, the after picture was on Saturday at 155lbs! I am so damn proud I am finally seeing my gains coming in 😍😍 Not going to lie I am a bit obsessed with my legs now lmao 😂 #transformationtuesday #wls #wlsinstafamily #wlsinstacrew #wlspostop #wlsgoals #wlsmeals #wlssurgery #wlsjourney #wlsfitness #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsginstafamily #vsginstacrew #vsgdiet #vsgmeals #vsgfitness #vsggoals #vsgstrong #vsgpostop #vsgisonlyatool
Anyone ever had these magical noodles?! I hate tofu. HATE it. But these noodles taste JUST LIKE NOODLES. And there’s only 2g of net carbs in the ENTIRE bag. I’m freaking out. Had some last night. I’ll never stop eating them. Ever. You’ll have to pry them out of my cold dead hands. Go get some. Try them. You’re welcome. 🍝 @housefoodsamerica :: :: #VSG #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgliving #vsgfamily #vsgcrew #vsgfriends #wls #wlsfam #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsvsg #wlspostop #losersbench #gettinghealthy #gettingfit #weightlossjourney #fitspo #wlssupport #vsgsisters #weightloss
Been slacking on the workouts. Back to it today. Had to drop poundage a bit and improvise for a busy gym, but proud that I got the work done!!! #sleeved #sleevedlife #gastricsleevesurgery #vsgover50 #vsgfitness #vsg #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgfitnessgoals #fitness #vsglife #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #verticalsleeve #vsgcrew #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgsurgery #vsgstrong #vsggoals #wlsfitness Powered by @TagOmatic
#MotivationMonday (SWIPE)HAPPY SURGIVERSARY to me six months and I am on it...I have shared the blessing of LIFE and how I came to moving wait and weights...I was literally dying and my doctor let me know..."You're going to die, if we don't do something about your weight!"...that was my introduction to my new doctor. My Blood Pressure was out of control...my Diabetes was in the 400-600s daily...my Cholesterol was bad...my Sleep Apnea and PCOS were giving me the blues, literally...I was depressed and depressing...but GOD, we got up and @revdreldermin_bd decided to do something about it...for us both, I tried everything but wanting to have surgery...I like my store house stacked and this was going to cost us...but then I had the revelation on the value of my life and I was determined to live...I had the VSG and learned weight lost surgery was not the miracle...I thought everything pertaining to it would be...it was a new method of daily commmitments and dedications...and I was obsessed with it...six months of reading, learning, and more researching, gaining great mentors and trainers and working out harder than I ever have in my life...gaining respects yet; completely opposed to body shaming in any form...being the biggest fattest, advocate for changed lives to your better...six months of having the support of my amazing family and friends and the joy of knowing I was blessed to do this for a greater Lisa-Marie...THAT IS #MovingWait_Weight .s...we are movingwait_weight.s...for the future...doing it now...for life...no waiting...for validations, commmitments, loyalties, situations, or circumstances...no more being weighted down......living by and on GOD's WILL...and no more waiting to die to really live...I am not waiting to see the wisdom of the blessing of life any longer...OUR HEALTH IS OUR WEALTH, and WE ARE GIVING OUR ALL TO LIVE!!! #vsgfam #vsgfamily #vsgsisters #vsggirls #vsgphotojourneychallenge #motivationsisters #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgjourney #vsgworkouts #vsgbabes #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsglife #vsginstacrew #beliteweight #wls #wlscommunity #weightlostsupport #wlcommunity #tranformation #marriage #marriedlife #parenting
Back on March 7th I posted a #nsv of me finishing a mile at 10 mins and now I am finishing a mile in 7 mins 30 seconds 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 Building that stamina B 😘😘 #wls #wlsinstafamily #wlsinstacrew #wlspostop #wlsgoals #wlsmeals #wlssurgery #wlsjourney #wlsfitness #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsg #vsginstafamily #vsginstacrew #vsgdiet #vsgmeals #vsgfitness #vsggoals #vsgstrong #vsgpostop #vsgisonlyatool
#motivationmonday shopping edition. I’m feeling bad about myself, and I hoped clothes would help. My weight has been the same for almost 2 months, and I really wanted to hit 100 lbs lost by my year follow up which is Friday and definitely not happening. So I tried on some clothes I’d never even consider trying on, and am motivating myself to get to a place where I rock this and feel confident! #vsg #vsgut #vsglife #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgstrong #vsgfamily #vsgbabes #bariatricbabe #progressnotperfection #vsgfitness #vsgfam #wls #obesetobeast #wlstories #wlsutah #wlslife #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlssupport #wlssurgery #fitfam #utfitfam #bariatricsleeve #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #girlwholift
Yassss 💃🏻; New week, new goals, positive mindset. Let nothing or no one kill your vibe. It’s so easy to get caught up into the drama, negatives, or simply lose motivation. BUT, that’s the devil talking. We got this guys, we gonna kill it 🔥♥️. Let’s motivate, encourage, and push each other. No hate, no negativity, or jealousy here🙅🏻‍♀️ Who’s with me? 🤗 let’s all be friends 😘
Transformation Tuesday.... it’s another comparison photo 2 years difference. I can’t think of anything insightful to say. So I’ll leave you with the picture.
Ughhh the struggle is real! 2nd week weigh in and being a girl sucks!!! I’m so frustrated cuz I worked my ass off yesterday and then water weight said “F-U here you go; don’t forget you get to be a girl” ugh which means my final weigh in is going to be me fighting with water weight😢! Anyways crying over I still lost weight this week so 11.5lbs to go; to beat my first challenge. That number scares me with the time frame 😳! But I still got this 😬 #jessbrag #bariatriclife #wls #wlslife #weightloss #gastricsleeve #gymrat #weightlossjourney #vsglife #vsgfamily #goals #determination #fitlife #vsg #weightlossstory #myjourney #transformations #loserbench #proteinlife #vsginstafam #vsgsupport #wlssupport #wlsfam #vsgstrong #vsgjourney #sleevelife #vsgcommunity #progress #thecamptransformationcenter
Hit 50 pounds down today! I can definitely feel the difference of not carrying around the small BALE of hay. ;) Happy with my progress, but still have a ways to go. I will begin to work on toning this week.

80 day obsession day 1 is not a joke!
It’s #mecrushmonday and I wanna say how damn proud of myself I am for getting out and experiencing life every chance I get. I haven’t lost my childlike sense of wonder and I’m amazed by the world around me. ♥️ :: :: #VSG #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgliving #vsgfamily #vsgcrew #vsgfriends #wls #wlsfam #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsvsg #wlspostop #losersbench #gettinghealthy #gettingfit #weightlossjourney #fitspo #wlssupport #vsgsisters #weightloss
Been feeling a little off in the gym lately, but there's a big difference between motivation and dedication. I don't always feel motivated to be there, but I'm dedicated. I refuse to allow my bad days to defeat me. Don't let the world keep you down! 💜😃💪 . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsginsta #vsgstrong #vsgbeauties #vsgeats #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #weightlosscommunity #weightlossinsta #weightlossinstacrew #wlssupport #wlslife #wlsstrong #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #bariatricsupport #bariatriceats #gastricsleeve #thesleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #pcos #lovelaughlose
Has anyone ever told you that it’s okay to be selfish? If they haven’t, let me be the first. —It’s okay to be selfish.—- After surgery especially, we have to make sure we take care of ourselves, especially diet-wise. People who haven’t had surgery can’t be expected to know or understand our dietary needs and struggles...it’s our responsibility to be sure we have what we need. So, this is me doing just that. I’m driving a 5-day field trip to National Beta Convention, 10 hours from home, and I’ve brought my stuff with me and have it in arm’s reach. I’ve got a cooler full of water and protein shakes and a plastic bag full of snacks hanging on the cupholder. I’ve brought snacks into the convention every day so far because I’m taking care of me, even if I do look a bit tacky carrying around a lunch box sometimes. #vsg #wls #wlsjourney #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #vsgtransformation #wlstransformation #progressnotperfection #vsgbeforeandafter #vsginstacrew #vsglife #wlsbeforeandafter #wlsjourney #wlsinstacrew #wlsinspiration #wlscrew #vsgcrew #wlslife #wlsstrong #vsgstrong #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlosssurgery #fattofit #workinprogress #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #takingmylifeback

Meal prep for the week pumpkin and sweet potato soup 🤭 yummo. Perfect for this freezing yo boobies off weather. #soup #coldassweather #freezingmyassoff
P r o g r e s s ✨ 156lbs⤵️. Yes, I know I’m still fat, but you know what? I’ve been able to do, wear, and achieve things I could never even imagine doing a year ago and for that I’m so damn proud of myself. Life is too short so be happy and most of all LOVE YOURSELF! ♥️
A little late on my week 8 update. Monday is my 2 month surgiversary! Every day is another day I am thankful for this tool. It has made such a difference in my life. Took this pic while hiking in #wissahickoncreek . We worked up some sweet and red faces all before noon. In fact, this week has been all about sweating and moving more. Went from averaging 15.2 miles per week to 24.1. Feels great. . . Hit a stall earlier last week and been losing and gaining the same .2 lbs like a pro. Sorta broke it this morning I think? We'll see. Still 62lbs down. . . What I am struggling with is "seeing it". Yes, I bought a pair of jeans in a size I haven't worn since college but I don't SEE it when I look in the mirror. Weird how the mind plays tricks. I regret not taking good before pics. Take those. They are important. . . . . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #wls #vsglife #vsgstrong #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabe #wlssupport
Happy Monday 😊 #mondaymotivation
Can I please go back to here. I hate the cold!! #freezingmyassoff #winterisntvsgfriendly
When I agreed to help a fellow teacher out and drive her Beta kids to nationals, she asked my shirt size so I could match everyone else in the group. I told her a L would work but I’m thinking I could have gone down a size! Loving this! For the sake of full disclosure, they’re both comfort color shirts and those are made big, but still a victory considering that a year ago I wore an XXL in these shirts! #vsg #wls #wlsjourney #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #vsgtransformation #wlstransformation #progressnotperfection #vsgbeforeandafter #vsginstacrew #vsglife #wlsbeforeandafter #wlsjourney #wlsinstacrew #wlsinspiration #wlscrew #vsgcrew #wlslife #wlsstrong #vsgstrong #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlosssurgery #fattofit #workinprogress #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #takingmylifeback

Sunday’s are for food prep yasss slower cooker!! #mealprep #sundayfunday
Back fat, stretch marks, and gains💪 I’m very lucky that my back boobs retracted pretty quickly, but I don’t have any pre op photos for comparison (I would have rather died), so you’ll have to take my word for it when I tell you there’s a big difference. I do have loose skin on my back, but nothing extreme like on my stomach and legs. Obviously there’s still work to be done, but I’m not lifting weights yet, so all things considered, I’m happy with how this is traveling along.
Don’t get me wrong, I used to ‘run’ before. But it was more akin to a sweaty, angry walrus, blubbering it’s way along the path, spewing profanities, and hollering like a murder victim. Nowadays the whole process is more civilized..... The profanity is still going strong💪 . . . #workoutfail #sundayfunday #halfmysize #aussiewlsbabes #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #bodypositive #vsgaustralia #fattofit #runningsucks #wlsjourney #vsglife #vsgfamily #vsgstrong #vsginstacrew #wlstories #lovemysleeve #weightlossdiary #fat2fierce #weightlosshumor #vsgjourney  #vsgcommunity  #vsgbabes  #vsggoals #vsgpostop  #lifeaftervsg  #bariatricbabes  #sundayrunday #fuckbeingfat #runnersofinstagram #notgraceful
So there are actually no pics of me at my true heaviest. I became seriously paranoid, and would turn into a puff of smoke whenever someone tried to take a pic of anything near me. The only things I have to remind myself of how big I really was, is a pair of old tights, a shirt, and this pair of tracks. My wookie now uses them as his comfy Sunday pants. Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away... these were tight on me😲 . . . #halfmysize #weightlosstransformation #aussiewlsbabes #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #bodypositive #vsgaustralia #fattofit #bodytransformations #wlsjourney #vsglife #vsgfamily #vsgstrong #vsginstacrew #wlstories #lovemysleeve #weightlossdiary #fat2fierce #mondaymotivation #vsgjourney  #vsgcommunity  #vsgbabes  #vsggoals #vsgpostop  #lifeaftervsg  #bariatricbabes  #fat2fit #fuckbeingfat #sundayvibes #sundayfunday
So since everyone can’t get enough of my glorious loose skin, I think it’s time to put up the other photo we took! You have NO idea how long it took me to get all the flour out of....places 😉 Again, shout out to @fluffy.mashed.potato And @sirjakobos for the pics! . . . #weightloss #transforming #beforeandafter #sundayfunday #vsg #wls #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #workingout #sundayvibes #fattofit #progress #wlsjourney #vsgfood #vsgfamily #vsgstrong #wlstories #lovemysleeve #looseskin #vsgjourney  #vsgcommunity  #vsgbabes  #vsggoals #vsgpostop  #lifeaftervsg  #bariatricbabes  #weightlosshumor #150poundsdown #memestagram
