So here I am. All 21 stone and a half of me! Size 22, BMI 45 - how have I done this to myself ? The answer is quite easily. A takeaway here a takeaway there , having a gossip with my friends or a cosy night in with hubs over an Indian (creamy korma , naturally😂) a pack of biscuits shared in work with my two work besties when the office gets a bit stressful , a glass of wine here and there in the kitchen whilst cooking a delicious BIG meal, it’s been a gradual slow weight gain, since I was a young teenager really. Do I hate my reflection ? Absolutely not! Does my weight hold me back ? Absolutely not! I just want to live a longer, healthier life and I know that this year , 2018, will be MY year! Please don’t hate yourself or your reflection today - you won’t lose weight in a day - learn to love yourself along your whole journey! Signing off for now as I’m having a little escape at a spa break for the night, only 10 mins down the road but we’re having a lovely relaxing over indulgent time so far!

Let’s talk about comfort food! Today in Michigan it was 15* and snowing. What a great day for meat and potatoes! So I used @skinnytaste recipe for Salisbury steak meatballs and made it with cauliflower “mashed potatoes” let’s say this was amazing!! All the comfort and way less guilt! Amazing how when you change your eating habits you learn to swap for a healthier version and still get all the flavor and satisfaction! Check out these amazing stats on the caulimash!

When your mother finds an old photo of you....the one on the right is from 2003 a few months before my 21st birthday....the picture on the left is from Saturday. I have lived most of my adult life looking like I did in picture 2 on and off....sometimes I find it hard to believe that I'm looking at me, I've changed so much lately. Again I'll say I feel that I look younger here and not only look younger here but actually feel younger too. My entire life I have been overweight...again I mention the yo yo dieting, losing weight only to gain a tone back, I just couldn't seem to keep it off. 97 kilos compared to 156 kilos in 2003 and I'm proud of how much this journey has helped change my life because I truly believe that if I had not had the surgery I would have continued to look like o do in the picture on the right and would have continued gaining weight sending me to an early grave. Loving this!!! I hated taking pictures back then....you can even tell I didn't want to take this picture. I was just so uncomfortable with having my picture taken. #nowandthen #weightloss #weightlossjourney #losingweight #vsg#vsgsthen #vsgbeforeandafter #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgweightloss #wls #wlssurgery #wlsfamily #wlsjourney #wlsjournal #wlsaustralia #wlsvsgaustralia #gastric #gastricsleever #gastricsleevecrew #gastricsleevesurgery #bariatric #bariatricsleeve #bariatricaussie

I'm starting to feel really good right...really good with the changes happening and taking shape within my body. My mind is at a positive stage at the moment......if such a thing exists, so I'll hold onto those positive moments as long as I can and as long as my mind sees it all happening.....my body is taking shape, I love that there is collar bone action and I love that my arms are starting to look more toned.....more defined...slowly building muscle and losing fat....slowly becoming much more confident in myself and in my journey. I love that my face is thinner and that double chin/triple chin is pretty much gone, it's an amazing damn feeling....it's amazing what the sleeve has done for me and my life!!! Again I post what I want and if it annoys others please unfollow and block....I don't have to justify myself to anyone for anything I post...nor how many times I post something. This is my journey and this is me and this is what helps me with this journey on those days that I do struggle. #bariatric #bariatricsleeve #bariatricaussie #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #bariatric2017 #bariatric2018 #gastric #gastricsleeve #gastricsleever #gastricsleevecrew #gastricsleevelife #gastricsleevegirl #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleeveaustralia #gastricsleevejourney #gastricsleeveweightloss #positive #positivethinking #positivethoughts #positivevibes #weightloss #wei#weightlossjourney #weightlosscommunity #weightlossjourney #weightlossaustralia #collarbone #toning #toningthemarms #workingonmymind

24th of January 2016 and today. Even looking at these pictures I struggle to see change, think I weighed about 123 kilos here, I had been 132 and had lost weight training but not long after I liked the weighed back on hitting 143 by the end of 2016. Current weighing in at 98 kilos and I'm off to go train and sweat it out on this Saturday night. #beforeandafter #vsg #vsg#vsggirl #vsg#vsgweightlossney #vsgweightloss #vsgweightlosssurgery #vsggirl #vsgcrew #vsgbody #vsgbeforeandafter #workingout #workout #workingonthesecurves #workingonmybody #gastric #gas#gastricsleever #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevegirl #gastricsleevecrew

It’s hard to believe that four days ago, it was so cold outside that I couldn’t go for a walk for fear of frostbite. (Wind chills in the negative teens F.) Today, it’s almost 50 F and I was able to thoroughly enjoy my walk in naught but a light flannel shirt. It’s supposed to be even warmer tomorrow! #centralpa #crazyweather #workoutwarrior

For today’s #throwbackthursday I was once on the sidelines for a Detroit Lions game for their warm ups! At the time, I was heavier than every single player on the team... Also, I took selfies purposely cutting out my big ass 2nd chin/neck... Have a great day everyone!

Isn't it amazing just how much our faces change when we lose weight, how much younger we look and how much older the extra fat on our face makes us look. My double chin is nearly gone, the cheek bones are making an appearance and I feel I'm starring at a different woman. Even now I'm not always happy and it's not because of the weight loss journey I'm not happy, other things are going on in my life which are hard to deal with but I know I'm not as miserable as I used to be like I look in the pic on the left. I'm forcing a smile there, when I just didn't want to smile back then. I know I look better and I feel better too. I feel like I look 35 now even though I get told I look younger....gosh I wish I was younger but it's just amazing how good the changes are when you can see them in your face.

January 29th 2017 and yesterday. Last January I was training my ass off in my brother in laws garage, sweeting like a pig, pushing myself, eating healthy and losing nothing whatsoever. Last January to I was also eagerly waiting for February the 23rd to arrive to see the surgeon and book in for surgery. Yesterday marked 5 months exactly till my one year anniversary...I don't think I'll get to my goal weight by then...doesn't mean I'm giving up I'm just going to be a little more realistic but it also doesn't mean I'm not going to try and get as close as possible to that goal as I can. Some days I feel like I haven't lost enough January 2017 SW 140 kilos ⬇️ January 2018 98 kilos ⬇️ Current weight loss 42 kilos #january2017 #january2018 #beforeandafter #vsgbeforeandafter #vsgchanges #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgcommunitysupport #vsgweightloss #vsgweightlossjourney #vsgweightlosssurgery #vsgaustralia #bariatric #bariatricsleeve #bariatricaussie #bariatricbabes #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #gastric #gastricsleeve #gastricsleever #gastricsleevecrew

It is virtually impossible to take a good picture of this cat, but I keep trying. Allie dropped him off a few minutes ago, and he stayed right where she put him - wrapped up in my arms. I love this cuddly little guy especially on this crazy cold day when the temp is in the single digits and very windy. PS. Joe asked me not to go out on my walk today, so I did 40 minutes on the elliptical machine that’s been hitherto gathering dust in our basement. #blackkitten #blackcatsrule #blackcatsofinstagram

When the medium work top is loose.
