Just a reminder to never give up ! I took the left picture with my brother in late February 2017 . On the right i took on thanksgiving day 2017. On the left i was nervous and regretting my surgery . I had a small complication and it felt like i was dying !!! Pretty much to sum up what I’m saying . Trust the process and never give up . Sometimes you have to look at how far you’ve came . Just having one of those moments where i feel like a failure

⚠️Vulnerability Post⚠️ . . . So, for the past several days, I have been debating whether or not I should post this kind of transformation - but then recently, a close friend reassured me that it doesn't matter what people think ; I'm doing (did) this for me and if my posts inspire someone to change their life, then so be it. . . The first picture was taken in the Kohls dressing room on September 22, 2017 - I was looking for an outfit for my 24th birthday which was in 2 days. Weight: 270 lbs. . . The second picture was taken right before Halloween - I was in shock at the difference. Weight: 263 ish lbs. . . The third picture was December 15th, (haven't taken a recent one yet because my weight is still around the same....will post current soon but it will be a single post, not a transformation). Weight: 240-250 lbs. . . Current weight: 228 lbs. . . . . Please be kind with these photos...we all battle with self love and our own self-concept. Mine is getting better, but your support and words of encouragement mean the world 🌍 . P.S. I obviously love that bra, but I swear I wear others 🙈 . . #wls#wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #bandtobypass #bariatricsurgery #bandtornyrevision #bandtobypassjourney #bandtobypassrevision #tinystomach #gastricbypass #rny#rny #rnyfam #rnyjourney #fit#fit/a> #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #rny #dailyworkout #workout #fit #fat2fit #lapbandrevision #healthjourney #garmin #vivofit2 #wls #weightlosssurgery

I have no words to describe how amazing this is... Guys, I grew up on homemade Arancini, my family is from Sicily where they originate. I used @skinnytaste recipe for a healthier version made with riced cauliflower instead of white rice and honestly I can’t tell the difference! These are amazing! I also made them in the airfryer! Gina, thank you so much for posting the recipe!

A size LARGE legging! 🤩🤯 Granted it’s Old Navy and their sizes run big... but it’s still a Large! 🙌🏼 First time wearing leggings EVER.. am I one of “those girls” yet that I can wear out not just at gym?! My fat brain keeps telling me no but I think I might look okay for public? 🤔

*Possible Trigger Warning* I’ve been feeling so good the past few days, I’m not sure if it’s due to the weight loss or me exercising, but my mood has improved and I’m feeling great. This is me about 7 years ago. I was the thinnest I had ever been. I was a Junior in high school, and I had lost 70 pounds and weighed about 190. This is also the most unhappy I have ever been. I was deep in depression and had bouts of anxiety attacks. I started self-harming. I hated myself. I was suicidal. Swipe to picture 2, and scar number 1 is a self harm scar on my stomach. I have others, but now this one is right next to an incision scar from my bypass. One scar out of self-hate, and one scar out of self-love. And that is a powerful reminder for myself of where I’ve been, where I am now, and where I still can go. . . . . #rny#rny #rnycrew #rnyinstacrew #rny#rnygastricbypasssurgery #rouxeny #rnygastricbypass #rny #wls #wlscommunity #wlsbabes #rnyfamily #rnyjourney #rnysurgery #rnysupport #bariatricbabes #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsupport #wlsfriends #gastricbypass #gastricsurgery #gastricbypasssurgery

Happy 3 month surgi-versary to me! I’m posting my fave before-and-after to date. On the left is me wearing one of my fave dresses (now too big!) at 278 lbs and on the right is today, before my mid morning gym trip, at 224lbs. It hasn’t been easy but seeing results like this makes it all so so worth it. #rny #rny#rnygastricbypassery #rnygastricbypass #rnypostop #rnylife #rnysavedmylife #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlspostop

My blood pressure was always normal to low before surgery and now it’s low. Most of the time I’m completely fine but once in a blue moon it wins. Dr says it’s normal and my body will adjust over time. I do get dizzy often but have only actually gone down twice. I felt it coming on and even said something to the person I was talking to but couldn’t get through the crowd quick enough to grab a seat. Anyone else? #wls#wlsney #rny#rny #wls #rny #extremeweightloss #sideeffects #wlssideeffects #rnysideeffects #gastricbypass #lowbloodpressure #lowbp #dizzyspells

I have been living in this hoodie this week. This liquid diet has me completely exhausted, physically weak, and mentally drained. But this #westmichiganmayhem hoodie is a reminder that I am—any other time—physically and mentally the strongest I’ve ever been. I am 💯 #mayhemtough and I WILL #overcome. Oh, and don’t mind the schmears on the mirror; house-sitting for a Great Dane who puts his nose on EVERYTHING. . . . #rny #rnylife #rnyinstacrew #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rnypreop #rnystory #wls #wlscommunity #flabtofab #fattofit #11daystillsurgery #liquiddiet #preopliquiddiet #prernyliquiddiet #Imsohungry #yesIcryaboutit #ladylineman #womenstacklefootball #semiprofootball #ifIcanplayfootballIcandoanything
