A touch over a year ago on the left, I had started my WLS Adventure at 317 lbs. My insurance requires that I take 12 weeks of classes and all kinds of other hoops— not uncommon for healthcare companies- making sure you will make the most of your tool. Today, I am 2 weeks post op, at 267 in the picture on the right. 50 pounds difference. It’s great to see the change!! #50lbsdown #rny#rny#rnygastricbypassery #rny #rnygastricbypass #scalevictory #wls #wlscommunity #wlschangedmylife #wlstransformation #wlslife #rnylife #gastricbypass #gastricbypasssurgery #kpnw #kai#kaiserpermanentewls #kaiserpermanente

5 things they may not tell you about weight loss surgery that can be #notsogreat. . 1. Aches – As your weight shifts, you will have body aches. For example my butt bone hurts if I sit too long, because all my extra cushion is gone. I also had hips and leg aches, it feels like growing pains. . 2. Fat shaming- People WILL treat you differently when you appear thinner. People are way more likely to open doors for me, I get a ton more smiles, friendlier and better service and even in the work environment, I am now seen as a “go getter” and not a fat lazy person (even though I never was). It is very infuriating, as fat shaming is not just verbal. . 3. Friends – People that tell they will support you during surgery might disappear. Maybe they are jealous that you are getting more attention or they were crap friends to being with. Your new body gives you confidence to no longer be someone’s option and that is all some friends want from you, be prepared that some friendships might change. . 4. Cross addiction – You MUST be mindful how easy it is for bariatric patients to transfer their food addiction to other addictions. (wine, shopping, exercise, sex, gambling, drugs, etc). That’s why therapy and the psych counselling is a crucial part of this life long journey. I am guilty of getting addicted a few of these and I always have to be careful. . 5. Fear – being fearful that you’re going to have regain all the time. The self-doubt and constant need to keep yourself in check can be so very taxing. I dream of a day when I don’t have to track food or workout, that I can finally have control to maintain without it scaring me. This fear is real but it is a place you can’t live and watch the world go by. Don’t let it guide you, but instead be a small warning. . Even though WLS is still an amazing lifesaving process, there are some bumps, but at the end of the road, a healthier life free from morbid obesity is priceless. . #Weightlosstransformation #wei#weightloss #weightlosssurgery #Lifeaftergastricbypass #rny #rnyfamily #rnylife #rnycommunity #vsgfam #wls#wls#wlscommunity #wlslife #itsallpartoftheprocess #wlscrew #wls #fitfam #wlscommunity #wlsfamily #wlsjourney #rnyinstacrew #weightloss

Sometimes after a 4 mile walk I put on pj pants and polka dot slippers to eat my amazing breakfast. Ok I always do that. 😝 Thank goodness I work from home. #thevsgchick #strongchick #vsg #wls #warriorinthemaking #vsg2017 #down100lbs #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #wlslife #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #weightlosssurgery #verticalgastricsleeve #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #bariactricbabes

I just ran out of my Tropical Orange @bariatricadvantage calcium chews, so I just started the Chocolate flavor. I ordered them because someone said they taste like Tootsie Rolls (which I love). However, after trying them, I'm not sure I totally agree. Obviously the chewy texture is similar to a Tootsie roll, but the flavor is more chocolate-y. I think it tastes like brownie batter. They do taste good and I will certainly use these until they're gone, but I personally like the Tropical Orange flavor better. Just my flavor preference. #calcium #takeyourvitamins #vsg#vsglife #wls#wls #bariatriclife #vsg #wls #gastricsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #bariatricvitamins #bariatricsurgery #weightlosssurgery

Look at me, sitting all criss-cross applesauce and shit. You may laugh, but at the beginning of this month I could not do this for more than 1 minute. It kills every part of my legs. Now, I can only do it for about 4 minutes before my ankles are numbing in protest, but it’s #progressnotperfection That’s what I’m trying to focus on. The little NSVs, the little changes (including the effing scale right now). It’s ok. I’m not in a race. I’m creating my new existence. And those tree trunk thighs, yep, I’ll get to those. I’ve had almost 38 years growing those bitches. #ywatrue #namastehome . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgtransformation #vsgtransformationinprogess #vsgtofindme #gastricsleeve #sleeved #wls #wlsjourney #wlslife #wlstransformation #wlstransformationinprogress #bariatric #bariatricbabes #vsginstacrew #wlsinstacrew #notdoneyet

I can honestly say that I am crushing on this before and after! I remember my brothers telling me “you dress like a skinny girl” that’s because I’ve always dressed risqué! I’ve always worn 2 piece swimsuits, see through outfits and crop tops. This confidence didn’t just appear because I lost weight! I’ve always been comfortable in my own skin. I guess now I push the envelope because I am smaller😂😍🙌🏾 #wcw #vsg #slaybaby #verticalsleeve #vsg#vsgjourney #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wei#wei#weightlosssformation #wls#wlsinspiration #wls#wlslife #vsg#vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #losingfat #losingweightjourney #wlssupport #wlslife #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #wls #vsgbeforeandafter #beforeandduring #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #fuckfat #losinginches

Breakfast today, one wheatabix with semi skimmed milk, vitamins and a redbull. Haven’t posted for a while as I’ve got a stinking dental infection and I’ve felt bloody awful!

Can’t forget #transformationtuesday! Highest weight on the left and current weight on the right. I started my bariatric program at 276.5 pounds in August 2016. Started my two week pre-op liquid diet at 266 pounds. Weighed in at 244 pounds on surgery day. I had VSG surgery April 4, 2017. Can’t believe I am getting close to my one year mark! Holy buckets!

Transformation Tuesday we meet again👋🏼 The scale is being a snarky bitch lately and not wanting to go downwards😒 But the jeans I tried on were a size 6 and fit like a glove😱 Smallest size I’ve EVER been because I weigh now what I did in middle school 🤯 It’s so humbling though to put these before and during pictures side by side though 😳 and definitely a reminder of where I will NEVER go back to again 🙅🏼‍♀️ I’m only 8 pounds from my next goal of 150 but moment of transparency here: I’ve let myself slack on eating clean 🤭 My guess is it’s human to self sabotage but I will NOT let that determine my fate 😏 #finallyaliveat25 #nsv #bariatricsurgery #wls#wlsunity #wls #bariatriccommunity #weightlossjourney #rouxeny #rny#rnyly #wlstransformation #wlscrew #wlsgoals #rny #rnycrew #rnyjourney #rnysavedmylife #rnystruggles #bariatricbabes #bariatriclife #bariatricsupport #gastricbypass #wlspostop #wlsjourney #wlslife
