This is a #LatePost from Sunday night. I'm posting this because I want to show that this journey is not all beautiful and perfect. I cheat. I ate 5 chicken nuggets only! Not all 10. I was really craving them that night. They were so delicious and fresh. My entire life has changed but I do spoil myself every once in a while. That was left in the past though. This week started great and will end great!😊-Sister 2 💪🏼 _ _ _ #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsgjournal #vsgmeals #vsgsurgery #vsgdiet #vsgfood #vsgsisters #vsgbabes #secretsleever #sleevegastrectomy #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #newlife #lifestylechange

Hello #transformationtuesday I love and hate you! The first photo was on the plane during my honeymoon. I’ve realised recently I was pretty numb at that point (partly due to very strong anti depressants) and just ignoring how big I was for fear I’d jump of a bridge!!! So grateful for how healthy and happy I feel now and completely non medicated! . . . #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsgbeforeandafter #vsginstacrew #vsginstafam #vsgbabes #surgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #wls #wlseats #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlssupport #weightlosssurgery #goals #100lb #losingweight #fat #accountability #healthy #protein

Happy #transformationtuesday! The photo on the left is from the launch of Livi active wear by Lane Bryant. I won the in-store raffle for a whole new workout outfit. I was so excited to squeeze my lumps into a 14/16. It was a tight fit, but I’ve always preferred high compression activewear. These days, clothes at LB are just a little too big. I still buy my bras from there because boobs, but no more clothing. I have mixed feels about no longer shopping at “plus size stores”. . . . #vsg #wls #vsgmexico #wlsmexico #wlssupport #wlscommunity #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgeats #wei#weightlossney #vsginstacrew #bariatricsurgery #verticalsleevegastrectomy #fattofit #fattofitjourney #vsgbabes #bandtovsg #weightloss #vsglife #beforeandduring #weightlosstransformation #workinprogress #fitfam

The peer pressure worked 😜 Here are current views of the booty and some comparison shots. I am super swollen in that area, especially around hips and the front and back so that’ll all go down and smooth out. I’m definitely expecting (and hoping) for the booty to do the same. I’ve been a flat-asser for life so this is all sorts of new for me and it still cracks me up to see it. I’ll keep everyone updated as it all settles and the swelling goes down!

Even after 3 years, tomorrow is still a bit weird for me. I’ve let go of a lot of the pain and anguish of the 2+ years after that. It’s taken an enormous amount of work, drive, and be willing to make changes in my life. My accident turned into a blessing in disguise. It forced me to be real with myself about a lot of things. There have been a ton of tears and anxiety throughout that. It sucked and was scary, but I wouldn’t change the path for anything. If nothing else I feel more alive than ever. Thank you all for following along with me. It’s been a hell of a ride. Don’t be surprised if there’s a second post similar to this next week...seeing as how on the 23rd it’s been a year since my gastric sleeve surgery. #accidentshappen #accidentanniversary #fordf250superduty #nola #neworleans #isurvived #imalive #hardesttimeofmylife #changeyourlife #itcouldhavebeenworse #gastricsleeve #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsghotties #vsgbabes #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #wlshottie #wlsbabes #sticksandstonesblog #craftylildevil

HAPPY #transformationtuesday FAM 🎉 first photo was pre regain and there’s a 15 pound difference between the two! i swear it all came from my waist 😂 y’all have been flooding my inbox asking for tips on motivation and tbh at times i don’t know how to answer. sometimes the drive isn’t there. sometimes i feel like doing anything other than taking proper care of my body. it’s deadly cycle that everyone falls into. and throughout this journey i’ve learned to be kind to myself when inspiration or motivation is hard to find. it’s okay to be lazy. it’s even okay to slip up and lose track of your goals from time to time. what’s not okay is to let those slip ups define you. you’re not a failure and you’ll get back up. sometimes the only way to do that is to kick yourself in the booty. suck it up and get back to the grind. but forgive yourself for falling off to begin with. it’s not a failure, it’s all just part of the journey. love you babes endlessly!! let me know if you posted a #transformationpic 💖

Getting weight loss surgery has been the best decision I ever made. My confidence has gone up 💯! I’m happier and healthier. Loving my life, don’t feel insecure as much as I used to. I’ve also made some great friend in this community. #transformationtuesday #neeciesweightlossjourney #dontwastethepretty #beyourownkindofbeautiful #weightlosssurgery#bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #weightlossjourney #vsg #verticalgastricsleeve #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #bariatricbabe #gastricsleeve #wlscommunity #wlsvsg #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgbabes #vsgsupport 🐛➡️🦋

I didn't realize how much I've lost until I calculated this morning! Yes, I'm having to calorie count.. even being a VSGer. And YES the scale has been up and down aaaaallll throughout the last 50 days. Just yesterday I jumped up 5lbs but I know it was water weight from the mag citrate depleting all the water I had then my dumb ass eating something extremely salty. I bloated and retained water like crazy! I'm 3 years post op and basically starting over, but I'm determined. Even if my sleeve isn't working like it used to, I still have some restriction. I'll get to my goal weight, even if I fall off track a time or two. It's a journey! . . . . . #vsg #wls #fitness #rny #lapband #fatloss #verticalsleeve #bariatric #bariatricbabes #weightloss #wlscommunity #everytimeiwritevsgitcomesoutvag #weightlossjourney #vsgbabes #followmyjourney #health

Good morning everyone!! I'm back in action!! I am no longer sick! I came in the office to so many positive reactions. Everyone in my department commented on my positive changes and how proud they are of me. It is so nice to have support from my Flight Ops family. Even some of my pilots are noticing which warms my heart. #wls#wlss #bariatricsurgery #vsgjourney #vsgbabes #vsglife #bariatricbabes #wls #wlsbabes #wlsfamily #wlsstrong #healthychoices #healthylifestyle

Only 30 pounds away from goal... down 5.8 pounds so far in 2018!!! Super happy!! Trying to lose 10 pounds a month til I reach my goal weight. It would be nice to finally see my BMI not say Obese Class 1 anymore. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgeats #vsgbeforeandafter #gasticbypass #wls #followthejourneyofdom #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsupport #gastricsleeve #vsgbabes #gastricsleevecommunity #wei#weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossssmotivation #preop #weightloss #watchmeshrink #healthy #healthylife #postop #sleeved #sleevedsister #domisshrinking #domgotsleeved #shrinkingdom #goaldigger

I've been thinking a lot lately about not just physical transformations, but transforming the way we think of our bodies. A few weeks ago @taylorgetstiny made a post that said, "What if you simply devoted this year to loving yourself more?" and it really resonated with me. ----- A lot of times, we get so caught up in picking ourselves apart while attempting to reach what we feel is a perfect number that we lose sight of actually being kind to ourselves exactly as we are; even on the days when we don't feel our best. SO, this is me: a girl who's lost 105 pounds - with loose skin and stretch marks and plenty bruises - being unafraid of this body because although it's imperfect, it's mine (and I've worked hard AF to get it). This is also me, reminding YOU to use this journey to love your imperfect self a little harder because that's the transformation that matters most. ✨ #transformationtuesday #courtneytransforming

First time I've exercised in a while! Had my first post op apt today, and 2.5 weeks post op and cleared for light cardio. So I hit the park. And did some laps. Felt amazing to get out!!. . . . #liquiddiet #bandtosleeve #bariatricsleeve #wlsrevision #determination #iamworthit  #lapband  #wlscommunity#wls #getfitordietrying  #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #hateobesity #positivevibes #strongerthanmyexcuses #vsg#vsginstacrew #vsg #vsgrevision #vsgbabes

#vsgstruggles: Not that I’m ungrateful for compliments, but damn is it weird to have so many people comment on my body. It’s one thing to hear your outfit is cute or hair looks nice, but so awkward to hear over and over that your body looks better. So uncomfortable! I went to an event today where I saw a lot of old coworkers none of whom know I had surgery. I heard a lot of the above and responded with the same “uh, yep, thanks, working on it” every time.

Oh yeah...look at those macros. On. Point. At my last appointment with my bariatric surgeon, she referred me to a nutritionist and we talked macros. 1100-1300 calories per day, 130 carbs, 45 fat, 80 protein is what they recommend for someone 12+ months post op. I tell you that my life is much better eating carbs. #vsg#vsg #wls#wlseats #bar#bariatric #macros #iifym #vsginstafam #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgbabes #verticalsleevegastrectomy #wls #wlssupport #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlsinstafam #wei#weightlossery #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #weightlossjourney #bariatric #bariatricbabes #bariatricsurgery #vsginstacrew
