Made some egg salad tonight for meals on the go...we have a busy week coming up. It turned out super tasty and I think it will be delish with those Mary’s gone crackers! Yummmm!

I made Nacho Wonton Cups tonight and yum they are good! 🌮 The recipe is in my story. The nutrition info is kind of an estimate bc I made the Queso last night and didn’t figure nutrition info on it so I guessed tonight. Close enough for me! Definitely satisfies any nacho craving minus all the carbs! 😋 🤤 Oh and they look like a mess bc I couldn’t wait and pulled them out of the pan piping hot. Next time I would pre-cook the wontons even more so they get crispy first - because the cheese made them super soggy. Still delish, but not crispy at all.

#hai#hairloss #postvsg be like... 😩😩😩 We just hit our #3month #surgiversary and Rachael has noticed an increase in #hairloss ...thankfully I have relatively thick hair ( #thanksmom ) but it’s still pretty rough to see an increase when dealing with #selfesteemstruggles to begin with. Trying to stay positive and keep focused. Hoping these next few weeks are full of #goalcrushing —but for now, I’ll find solace in this community. 🖤 #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgphotojourneychallenge #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgpostop #vsgliving #vsgbabe #vsgbesties #vsgcrew #bariatricsurgery #bariatriclife #hairlosspostvsg #change #vsgproblems #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney

Family adventures today! It was super cloudy and grey but we didn't let that stop us we went and found somewhere suitably gloomy to explore and really enjoyed walking round the old grounds of the seacliff mental asylum - didn't see any ghosts though sadly 😂👻 also bonus funny video for you guys, it's so unflattering but I absolutely had to share because we found this cool little flying fox and 50kgs ago you wouldn't have caught me DEAD on a flying fox. Fear of heights combined with fear of breaking the swing/myself have been overcome by my new found confidence and passion to LIVE LIFE!! So happy I did this and seeing her mama do it also gave my daughter the confidence to do it too and she loved it...I could have cried with happiness. It's those little things that this journey is all about for me, that's what makes it all worth while. Living life for myself and my beautiful family 😍❤️👍

@chipotlemexicangrill what's good?! Cilantro lime cauliflower rice, corn salsa, low sodium black beans and chicken thighs. Avocado and mozarella would be added before eating. No idea what the macros are but I don't careeeeee this shit is bomb. #MealPrep #Chipotle #Homemade

Dinner tonight is a typical Spanish dinner 😩😂 Got some steak 🥩, rice and beans (crunchy rice TYVM) 🍛, and tostones with some tropical cheese on the side. This is gonna be even better as breakfast tomorrow with a fried egg 😩🤤😋 ***************** Before having my surgery, I would eat like this ALL OF THE TIME. I seriously get grossed out sometimes thinking how badly I used to eat before and how much. It’s definitely a culture thing but I thought I could never survive if my meals didn’t have rice and fried food involved (kinda like how Italians say they can’t live without pasta and bread! 😏) So before weight loss surgery, I honestly thought I could never live without this. But I do live without it most of the time and I feel so much better! Many times you’ll see me skip the rice and just have the meat and beans. I make rice WAY LESS in my house. Maybe 1x week when it used to be like 4-5x week EASY! I’ll even make stews without rice on the side and I’m just as satisfied. So yes, 16 months post op I do allow myself to eat this sometimes. But did you see how I ate the rest of the week? 🤔 I’m basically having protein shakes, salad, tea, and turkey roll ups lol. I eat super simple and on track so when I do decide to eat like this once in a while, I don’t feel bad 🤗 Buen provecho!!! 😋

Spinach herb tortilla #pizza for dinner 😍 I've barely eaten today so I'm gonna have to chug down some powders later. 21g protein, 25g fat, 37g carbs (this was my carb "serving" for today)

When I can’t think of what to cook, I make stir fry! . . . . Bell pepper, Japanese eggplant, snow peas, carrot, jalapeño, garlic sautéed in olive oil. Added Hoisen sauce on top and bones less pork loin. If you’re feeling low carb, throw it on top of cauliflower rice. Easy, fast, leftover for lunch tomorrow. #stirfry #makehalfyourplateveggies #homemade #rdapproved #dietitianapproved #lowcarb #mealprep #bariatricfriendly #bariatricfood #bariatriclife

Making a Greek inspired flavored chicken. The marinade is lemon zest, lemon juice, fresh garlic, cilantro, pink salt, paprika, fresh ground pepper, and olive oil. I seasoned the chicken with just s&p and them poured the marinade. Let’s see how this turns out. 🥓🥚🥓🥚🥓🥚🥓🥚🥓🥚🥓 #ket#ketosnacks #keto #ketoer #ketofoods #ketofriendly #ketoeats #ketogenic #keto4life #ketogenicdiet #lchf #ketodiet #highfatlowcarb #keepingitketo #ketofoodie #16hrfasting #ketomeals #highfatdiet #weightloss #weightlossjourney #bariatriclife

If you’ve seen my story from last night - these are the Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps I prepped in the middle of the night. They are tasty! And super filling! 2 bites in and I think I can only have 1-2 more bites before I’m done. I topped with broccoli and carrot slaw and garnished with cilantro and green onions and peanuts and drizzled some sweet & spicy aioli as well as a spicy soy peanut sauce over the top. Soooo good. Packed with tons of veggies and loads of bold flavors! I tried one on a butter lettuce leaf and one on romaine - I think I prefer the romaine bc it’s more firm and crispy. Both are great though. The second pic is how I packaged sky’s to take to work today, lettuce in a ziplock. #lettucewraps #thaichickenlettucewraps

The perfect way to start the day on a Sunday morning after an epic sleep in is always bacon and eggs right?! I may or may not have smothered this with tomato sauce post photoshoot 😂🙈

I've always loved baking, I used to bake lots before surgery but it got turned into something that would fuel my binge eating by me making lots of extra mix to eat until I would feel sick. I haven't baked much after surgery in case I would abuse it again and it would be twisted into a way of me eating rubbish. I'm happy to say I made this but tried one tsp of the mix, had half a slice and left the rest with a friend. It is no longer a reason for me to over eat or binge and then provide comfort food for the coming days. It's now something I can do for others and do sensibly without the fear of losing control . . . . . #eat#eat#eatingdisordervery #eatingdisorder #mentalhealth #mentalillness #anxiety #depression #eatingdisorder #gettingfitter #gettinghealthy #selflove #kindness #baking #cake #cakes #cook #bariatriclife #bariatricsurgery #wls #vsg #wlscommunity #vsgcommunity #wlscrew #vsgcrew #healthyliving #weightloss #weightlossjourney

Haha wow have had a little boom in followers the last week or so. Hello to the 400 or so new people, I cannot believe there are more than 1000 of you. It makes me laugh that many people even wanna see the crap that I'm posting haha 😂I don't think i had ANY followers when I started this. As is the case for most people I just wanted to do this to keep myself in track. But since then I've gotten so much support and even had a few people message to say how I've inspired them in their own journeys! Thank you to my little online fambam you rock 😍😍😍

So you know that little section of the grocery store with all the yummy raviolis and tortellinis in the refrigerated section??? Well I usually pass right by it. I like pasta but it’s also easy for me to pass on so I only eat it a few times a year and usually only when we eat out. WELL...the other day that section just caught my eye. This gnocchi looked amazing. I picked it up to read the nutrition info figuring I would put it right back down but was shocked to see that it has 11g of protein per serving - plus another 7g per serving of pesto!!! Obviously high in carbs, but there’s protein! So I made it up last night and yummmm! I tossed it in some sage browned butter and then did some in the pesto and topped with parm. I preferred it with the pesto. Didn’t eat nearly all of this or even a full serving - but it was nice for a change! And Skyler loved it! He ate all of his and gladly finished mine 😋
