So who is ‘gastricbypassholly’?! I’m 28 years old and I live on the Isle of Wight, originally from North Wales. I live with my gorgeous partner Ed, our rabbit and 2 guinea pigs. I am Marketing Consultant and a plus size model and actress. You might have seen me in the ITV TV documentary ‘my 18-30 stone holiday’ and I’m in a film that’s out in the cinema this summer called ‘Robin Hood - The Rebellion’, alongside Brian Blessed! I am very body positive and confident, I truly believe you can look and feel great at any size. So why you might ask am I paying 10k to have a private gastric bypass?! Haha! It is all about health for me, 100% health - not appearance. I am a size 22 and weigh 21 stone 6 lbs. Although I currently don’t have any health issues , apart from #PCOS I am effectively eating myself to death! I want to be healthier and fitter and after trying and sticking to every diet out there I cannot do it alone. The bypass is a tool to help me and I will embrace it with all I have. I have only told immediate family about this op, and my two besties, so shhh! Mums the word! Tell me about YOU! #gas#gas#gastricbypasslife #gastricbypass #gas#gastricbanduk #gas#gastricbypasssurgery #gastricbypasslife #gastricsleeve #bypasssurgery #bypassuk #gastricbypasssurgery #gastricbypassinstacrew #gastricbypasscommunity #dolanparkhospital #thehospitalgroup #gastricbanduk #bypassgastric #weightloss

Who wants to see some #progress ? Who is ready for #motivationmonday ? This girl! #100lbsdown #100lbsgone I couldnt be happier. Some may say that wls is the #easyway out. Dont believe them. I wish I could have done it natural I look up to those who can. But for me time was running out. I am no longer in my 20s. I had tried over and over to do it on my own....and it just didnt work out for me. Is it helping me lose weight? HELL YA! Does it mean that I am losing super fast. That depends on me. 2 months out of 4 I only lost 10lbs. I work for every lb I lose. If I put 💩💩💩 in my 👄👄👄 then the number on the scale reflects that. Making this change has changed my life. It has opened doors. It gave me a future. The rate i was going had me terrified. Death had become a reasonable fear. I love my new lease on life. #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #wei#weightlossunity #transformation #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnyjourney. #rnyfamily. #gastricbypass #gastricbypasssurgery. #gastricbypassjourney. #gastricbypasscommunity #weightlosssurgeryjourney #weightlosssurgerycommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #nsv #rouxeny #rouxenyjourney #losingweight #gettingfit #fitlife #shrinking #findingme

Just waiting on this last pound and a half in the 180s to come to finally be in the 170s!! My water game has not been on point the last week and it shows, so you know what I’m doing tonight?? Chugging the water! I am 6.5 months post op from RNY gastric bypass. I am still losing weight pretty consistently averaging 10-12 pounds a months (I’m at 6 ish pounds so far for January and only halfway through). I posted to my story but don’t have tons of followers yet to reply, so I’ll post it here too! I am in need of new clothes! What are your favorite stores to shop for new clothes and what are your must have items??

Jan 2017 to Jan 2018 One year ago today I started this Instagram and took a huge leap outside of my comfort to share a story and a journey that I had long kept to myself. It was slightly terrifying, but I am so glad I did it! I've made some beautiful friends all over the US and beyond that share in the struggles and the highlights and can relate to me in ways no one ever has. I'm so thankful for all of the support and love from you guys, who have chosen to walk this road with me and have allowed me to share in your lives as well. I cannot express how much this community means to me! You are all THE BEST!! ________________________________ #wls#wlsunity #wls #gastricbypass #wei#weightlossney #losingweight #rny #rnycommunity #weightloss #myweightloss #myweightlossjourney #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #wlsjourney #gastricbypasscommunity #pcos #pcoswarrior #weightlossmotivation #bariatricbabe #transformation #weightlosstransformation

Lunch time! This is like a dessert for me. I usually eat the triple zero yogurt but I wanted to try this as a treat. I RARELY eat more than 6g of sugar at a time and the carbs here are pretty high. The protein is great though and you know what??? My picky little tiny stomach only can eat half anyways so I don’t even care! I’ve talked a bit about this before but my restriction compared to others I know seems very high. This yogurt is 5 oz even. I ate about half so that’s 2.5 oz and I am STUFFED. Yogurt for many is even compared a slider food so that’s a bit surprising, but I can’t complain. My new stomach is working well for me. Swipe for nutrition and how much I ate.

Lunch before and after still working on keeping grains out of my diet. I lost 8lbs this month but I see i will hit a little stall soon. I seem to always lose great the first week in a month then stall 2 weeks before losing again. I am 10lbs away from199...that will drive me crazy. What about you guys? Being so close to wonderlands or the goal weight. #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #wei#weightlosscommunity #transformation #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnyjourney. #rnyfamily. #gastricbypass #gastricbypasssurgery. #gastricbypassjourney. #gastricbypasscommunity #weightlosssurgeryjourney #weightlosssurgerycommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #nsv #rouxeny #rouxenyjourney #losingweight #gettingfit #fitlife #shrinking #findingme #keto #nostacrch

I am always so unsure what to do at the gym. Today I worked on the treadmill. Im working on how long i can hold a run. Out of 20min I only got 6min of run time. Working to improve that. my goal is 1 mile. I did several core strengthening exercise. Made it to 200lb leg press. I dont know what to do in the gym....but the more I go the more confident I get. #gymday #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #wei#weightlosscommunity #transformation #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnyjourney. #rnyfamily. #gastricbypass #gastricbypasssurgery. #gastricbypassjourney. #gastricbypasscommunity #weightlosssurgeryjourney #weightlosssurgerycommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #nsv #rouxeny #rouxenyjourney #losingweight #gettingfit #fitlife #shrinking #findingme #workout

Buying new scrubs because my others are falling off. I have gone from a 2x on top and bottom to a medium on bottom and a large on top!! I am in awe and feel so blessed every day from my gastric bypass tool.

New nails always make me feel rejuvenated! Swipe to see my #nsv. My ring literally just spins around my finger and falls off all the time. I’m now a size 5 ring and my wedding ring is WAYYYY too big.

No selfie then it didnt happen right? @josiahstransformation and I go 4-6 days a week (depending if something needs attention) I dont always post I go though. Today wasnt my best #gymday something in my body feels off. Just 10 min on the elliptical took so much. Everything feels weak and not day after workout weak. Maybe I am dehydrated. Or maybe the lack of calories last few days. Being that I had RNY people in the wls community may understand. I have been backed up for a few days. I find myself starving but unless its super soft lately a take a few bites and im done. I even felt stuffed this morning before eating....but hungry at the same time. Do you guys is the wls community know what Im talking about? Or is this in my head? #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #wei#weightlossunity #transformation #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnyjourney. #rnyfamily. #gastricbypass #gastricbypasssurgery. #gastricbypassjourney. #gastricbypasscommunity #weightlosssurgeryjourney #weightlosssurgerycommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #nsv #rouxeny #rouxenyjourney #losingweight #gettingfit #fitlife #shrinking #findingme
