📷 @skye.loves.to.eat Discipline and dedication is how we lose the weight, and keep it off. My in 2015 was impressively fast, 110 lbs. gone in 5.5 months. and 1000000% consistency and effort. is indeed something to be pleased about, considering I was my whole life, and only started my when I was 41 years of age. Also, water intake is key. I didn't drink any shakes, took no vitamins/supplements, didn't even train at the gym. Neither did I have surgery for . It truly was old-school . In a manner of speaking, any would work, so as long as we're determined. Please take care of yourselves, friends. Our health is the best commodity we can invest in. If we live a life, then there's so much more good we can do, and even more we can work hard for. I'm 44 now... And yes I can finally feel myself getting older, lol. But I do intend to grow old gracefully. Stay happy and eat hearty, everyone. Always look on the bright side of life 😉 and drink your water! - Follow ❤️ @WeightLoss_st1

Day 15 was tough. I tried working out in the morning and the video would not work. Tried again in the afternoon and finally got it to work. Didn’t feel into it. Slipped on the mat during the first round and smashed one of my knees. I sat there for a minute and said I couldn’t do this. I was so negative... so I started over and pushed through it. I knew how good it would feel when I was as done. Hubby joined in and we finished it! Some days you gotta just push yourself 💪 - - - - #workout #workoutmotivation #fitness #fitnessaddict #fitmom #fitmum #wls #cardio #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlifting #homeworkout #instadaily #instagood #igdaily #ig_daily #workoutoftheday #fitmomma #fattofit #healthy #healthylifestyle #weightlosstransformation #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #obsession #80dayobsession #getobsessedwithtoday #obsesseswithtoday #icandohardthings

#LondonWLSMeetupChallenge day 1. Protein bar for breakfast, Salad for lunch, jacket potato with tuna and onion for dinner and no beer whilst watching the world cup! I also went to the gym after work and have drank 7 pints of water today. I've put 5lbs on from my lowest weight. Time to get some fat gone before the meetup!

I was getting my nails done this morning and wondered do you have to have your acrylic off for surgery? I have acrylic overlays on my own nails. #preop #prebariatricsurgery #prewls #prevsg #vsgquestions #wlsquestions #vsg #vsguk #wls #wlsuk #bariatricsurgery #privatesurgery #weightlosssurgery #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew

So darn proud of my son, he had a great weekend showing his horse! He won two chairs and scored a 139 in his short stirrups (10 and under) class. Added bonus...i dont hate the pictures of me from the weekend! #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney
This is my #motivationmonday post... I know so many on here isn't struggle and are on tract all the time but right now I'm struggling some.. Over 18 mos out and I can eat more and I've been so stressed and falling back into looking to food for that comfort and I know it's not where I need to be.. For me that is a victory to see it and to take control of it.. And I am!! This is far from my heaviest in the before pic.. But the other is today.. I can see I'm smaller and I'm healthier.. I am thankful and I know that I can overcome this bump in the road too.. If you pray just keep me in prayers.. Lots going on and not things I'll share.. I am blessed to have family and friends who love me support me and are always there to listen.. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #wlsurgery #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #sleeve #sleevesurgery #weightloss #myjourney #mylife #bariatricsurgery #wlstories #bucketlist #transformation #healthier #happier #lovingme #selfie #seizetheday #nsv #thankful #jeeplyfe #jeepher #goals #weightlosspics #weightlosscomparison
I’m so hype right now! Celebrating several things this week! #vacationmode 😜#blessedbeyondmeasure ☺️
I don’t wear makeup everyday, I don’t spend hours on my hair everyday either but I do try to be the best me I can be everyday! Fighting health battles and chronic illnesses are hard af! Trying to exercise daily is kicking my ass. My muscles give out easily due to my myopathy but I still keep pushing. So enjoy the eye bags, unfilled eyebrows, messy hair and my straw, it’s what works for ME. 💛💛💛 KEEP FIGHTING! 💛💛 #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossjourney #vsg #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #verticalsleeve #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #bariatricpatient #bariatricsleeve #myopathy #fibromyalgia #asthma #keepfighting

Started birth control on Saturday..we have been trying to conceive for a year now and no baby. So we are letting science give us a push. I had pcos before my surgery and I have it after my surgery. It’s not something that just goes away. However we are starting our IVF journey after a failed IUI. And the start is Birth control. Which makes me bloated, feel fat, and uncomfortable. My hormones are super crazy and yesterday I cried for 2 hrs because nothing looked good and I felt fat. It almost feels like a set back of my weight loss journey, but that journey abled me to start this new journey we are on now! I feel defeated today because I’m so bloated that the pants I have on seem right, even though they are not. I didn’t want to look in the mirror to see if I matched or looked good today because all I was going to see was what my body dysmorphia was going to allow me to see. This picture was from yesterday at Black and White. A romper in a size large, a size I have never been able to fit into up until about a year ago. Yes it made me feel great and feel my weight which was all I needed yesterday. Then there is today where I don’t have an appetite but I know I need to get my protein in so I’m forcibly eating my pre-planned meals. I know it will get better..this will all be worth it! And just because my surgeon said I’m in maintenance now doesn’t mean I think that! I want to be 180 by the time it’s Embryo transfer time in late September or early October. 30 pounds..I’m 205 now and bounce between 199-205. Small goals of 30 pounds. I know I can do this! #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #ivfjourney #ivf #infertility #ivfafterwls #weightloss #health #healthy #weightlossjourney #pcos #pcosttc #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #ttcafterwls
So, huge NSV for me!!! Since I was given this ring on the day my Nana left this earth I have been so upset I couldn't wear it. It would never fit. She had the smallest fingers I know. I knew that my regular rings were way too big so today I tried and IT FIT!!!!!! I cried. My sweet nana's ring finally fit me! These are the moments I'm so happy I did what I did. #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlscrew #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #fatgirltofitgirl #obesetobeast #goals #nsv #nonscalevictory

My reality. I am so grateful for this journey and for how far I have come but this extra skin brings every insecurity I have to the surface. Makes dating tough I will probably never have any plastics so I am going to try and work in my toning just to make this body the best it can be. #vsg #wls #vsginstacrew #wlsjourney #vsgjourney #vsgstruggles #vsglife

Here is my #mondaymotivation this is me 4 2 years ago, 4 months into my surgery weighing in 348lbs. My surgeon said the sleeve will assist me and do it’s job and get me down to a his goal weight of 315lbs. I had a choice to make... Use the tool as a “magic bullet” or put in f****ing work and hit a goal I knew I could achieve. We have choices everyday people, put in work or lose your 100lbs or whatever and stay complacent. Some people will not agree with this post, some will, but I think everyone needs to hear this. Take your vitamins, drink your damn water, exercise daily and most importantly TRY to make the right decisions what you eat and drink everyday!
2 Starbucks egg bite photos in the same day?  YEP.  And here’s why… This is a normal day for me 2 years 4 months post op VSG.  I ate that first egg bite and avocado spread at around 720am.  I finished off the avocado spread around 1030am or so and did have a few pretzel chips to assist with that 😂 But I do this only because I know I should and it’s almost 2pm… I could have eaten that one egg bite and nothing else until tonight.  I do not ever feel hungry and have not felt hungry since about 1 week before my surgery during my 2 week liquid diet.  I am so thankful for the profound psychological impact this surgery has had on me!  I strongly encourage everyone thinking of having this surgery to do a 2 week liquid diet for your pre op diet 😎 . . . . . #Vsgcommunity #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgeats #vsglife #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #vsgfriendly #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wls #wlseats #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #sleevegastrectomy #transformationtuesday #weightlosstransformation #starbucks #weightlossjourney #weightlossgoals #gastricsleevesurgery #bodypositive #extremeweightloss #beforeandafter #ketosis #bacon #gastricbypass #keto #ketogenic #ketodiet

Today I’m 2 weeks post-op! I weighed myself this morning and I’m down 1 and a half pounds from last week. It’s a lot less than I would’ve liked but I’ll take it! I had a big loss last week (11 lbs) so I know my body is adjusting and in the end every pound adds up👍🏼 Also even though the scale didn’t move much this week I feel like I lost more on measurements and my clothes fit a bit better. So that brings my total weight loss to 18lbs 😁 I’m gonna change some things this week and hopefully I’ll have a lower number next Monday . . . . . . . . . . . . #progress #gastricbypass #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rny #rnycommunity #rnyjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlosssurgery #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandafter #bariatric #bariatricsurgery
After my last weight update +1.2lbs, I actually gained another almost 2lbs taking me to my highest weight of 274.6lbs! ⠀ Last week I started “phase 2” of my plan where I’m combining intermittent fasting with Keto. And after my first full week I dropped 8.8lbs! I know it was almost all water and I can’t sustain this rate of loss but I’ll take it for what it’s worth. #awinisawin

5 weeks apart, what’s that.. my pants are showing 😆 sorry not sorry! Today has really made me feel like myself again, I’ve been to the gym for the first time in forever, I’ve had a sun bed and I’ve booked in for my hair, it’s needs some TLC (thank goodness). The future is looking bright & skinnier 😂. #vsg #vsgfamily #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsg #vsgphotojourneychallenge #vsglife #vsgjourney #gastricsleeve #gastricsleever #gastricsurgery #gastricsleeveuk #gastricsleevelife #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #weightloss #weightdiary #weightlossuk #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssupport #wls #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlscommunity #wlssurgery #liasstory
Motivation Monday ❤️ I never saw myself as big as I was in that picture. For me it wasn’t about losing weight so I could be more attractive. I was tired of walking to class and losing breath, having no energy to do normal tasks, and I knew if I didn’t lose weight my health would have kept deteriorating. Everyone has their reasons, just try and make sure they aren’t all superficial. #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #wls #wlssupport #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #wlsstrong #vsg #vsgcommunity #gastricsleeve #sleevegastrectomy #health #healthylifestyle #fitness #fitnessmotivation #thickthighssavelives #motivationmonday

#motivationmonday swipe➡️ _____ I am getting closer and closer to being one year out from surgery. I have lost -140lbs in the last 11 months and I have even more goals than I started with. When I first started this process, my goal was to get healthy and lose weight. I have succeeded in those goals but as I did I set more. I was to build muscle now. I want to run races. I want to put myself out there as much as possible because I am so incredibly proud! I am proud of what I have done and who I have become. Or rather becoming. Having weight loss surgery will never be a negative in my life, it is the best decision I ever made for myself. (Ps. Yes I got new ink) _____ #wls #weightlosssurgery #vsg #sleeved #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #healthy #newchapter #vsgliving #vsgsupport #bariatricliving #bariatricsupport #fattofit #weightlosstransformation #bodypositive #bodypositive #bigchanges #healthylife #girlmom #healthymomlife

It ain't pretty, but it sure does taste great! This is what I'm breaking my 16 hour intermittent fasting with this week. It's what I made for meal prep. As part of the #wls5in5 I am fasting & upping my fat for a more perfect keto fit! Ingredients & stats below; • • 2 oz smoked sausage 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 slices of bacon 25 grams of red bell pepper Quarter cup of cabbage All kinds of creole seasoning You can drain this after you cook it. I chose not to-so I can get the fat from the olive oil, bacon, & sausage. • • • 374 calories,l 4 net carbs 35 fat &&23 protein. • • #wls #wlseats #wlsfood #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #vsgcommunity #losingweightfeelinggreat #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #keto #ketoaf #ketodiet #ketoeats #ketotransformation #vsgeats #vsgsurgery #vsginstacrew #obesetobeast #fattofit #fattofitjourney #weightlossjourney #food #lunch
Really wanting to loose these last 22 pounds to make my 2nd goal of 100 lbs lost in the next 2 months. I am STILL down 80 lbs and some days I feel like my original goal of 150 lost is still not reachable. I get down and eat garage. The difference is I eat less but still, not near what I want to be at. During the week is better. I stay on track but weekends I don’t reach liquid or any goals at that. I don’t have the motivation I had 3 months ago of working out daily, tracking hardcore and meeting protein, liquids, vitamins etc. I lost 70 lbs the first 6 months of surgery and the last 8 months 10 lbs. I compare my self to a lot of people on ig that killed it the first year with 100-150 lbs lost the first year. But the difference is they stuck to diet/exercised 4-6 times a week. Meanwhile I introduced carbs and shit food back into my diet. I have made excuses for most of my adult life and cried about how the person next to me can consume every thing bad and still be thin. Sometimes your worst enemy is your self and you need to get over it, stop comparing and put in the work yourself. Surgery is not the fix all your issues. I wanted to be healthier and I’ve let myself back into old habits once again. I want to work to enjoy healthy foods all time. I want it to come first nature to grab fruit instead of candy. Veggies instead of chips. I want to lay ground work so when I have kids they won’t know what ramen are by the time they are 7 😂 I grew up on processed foods. I crave chips, sweets and everything else that’s crap 🙄 here’s to getting motivated and staying motivated. It’s a struggle. #motivationmonday #vsg #vsgjourney #wlsjourney #getyourshittogether
Eat less sugar, you're sweet enough already! #HealthyLiving #HealthyDiet
