Holy fuckin♥️ 🔥 I rarely had heartburn before surgery and if I don’t take the Protonix that my surgeon prescribed first thing every morning (which happens about once a week 🤦🏽‍♀️) even water gives me heartburn. I have a feeling this is going to be the new normal... but I’ll take that over being the chunkiest girl in the room any day!!! #vsg#vsgop #vsg #vsgcommunity #verticlesleeve #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgcrew #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily

I’ve been horrible about tracking my food in My Fitness Pal! I need to hold myself accountable! I’m going to make my diary public so if you want to be friends add me: Rochelley21 My 1st goal is to track every day for... let’s start with 1 week! Then I’ll make it a month 😉 My weigh in days are Wednesday mornings! ⚖️📉 #vsg#vsgop #vsg #vsgcommunity #verticlesleeve #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgcrew #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily

Weird #nsv but I can actually get on the putter thigh machine without the weights lifting immediately because my thighs touch. Idk why, but this is a nice feeling. . . . . #wls #wlscrew #wlslife #wlsbabes #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlspostop #nsvforthewin #nsvmoment #vsg #vsglife #vsgcrew #vsgbabes #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgpostop #bariatriccrew #bar#bariatriclife #bariatricbabes #bariatricjourney #bariatricsurgery #bariatriclife #bariatricpostop

Back to it again this morning, after a late night sorting shopping lists and meal plans, still got my lazy arse out of bed and hit shoulders and triceps. Not my strongest group, but felt good to hit them hard and got a bit of work to do to get them boulder shoulders. And this was the first song in my playlist today, signs of a good day maybe? . . . . . #vsg #vsgmen #vsgcrew #vsgaustralia #vsgcommunity #wls #wlsmen #wlsbros #wlscommunity #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlossmotivation #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #fitfam #fattofit #obesetobeast #shoulderboulders #gains

What in the world?! I never thought more than just my friends and family would be interested in following my #vsg story! If you’re new here, I figured I’d introduce myself and tell y’all a little bit about me: my name is Alee and I live in McKinney, TX. I had surgery in July of 2017 and am almost down 100lbs. The last half year has been a whirlwind of the best kind. My family owns a wedding venue where I do daily operations and I have side hustle where I get to help brides have the best day EVER. Having #wls has been so much more than looking better. I feel better physically, emotionally and mentally. Looking better has definitely been a perk, but feeling better has made every single struggle post-op worth it. My husband and I have two super goofy dogs that keep life interesting. Running, attempting to be crafty, rewatching the same TV shows and playing the same video games are my favorite things to do in my spare time. I get messages from potential VSG patients all the time asking if I’d do it again, if it’s worth it and am I ok with loose skin- the answer? In a freaking heart beat. VSG isn’t easy. Feeling GOOD is worth it. Thanks for sharing your stories/struggles/lives with me! I’ve absolutely loved getting to know y’all!

Y’all!!! This was my weight today...look at the BMI calculator🙀🙀🙀 if I’m looking at this correctly...I think it says “Nadia has a NORMAL FREAKING BMI!!!!”. After getting tons of my blood sucked out of me at the hospital and getting all sorts of tests done...those came back normal and in good ranges. I could easily say “All right, I’m good. Now I can stop.” But NO. This isn’t something that stops once you meet your goals. This is where you set NEW goals! Whether they be maintaining where you are, losing more weight so you can start gaining muscle, toning up, changing your diet, your workout routine, etc. Don’t stop when it’s “good enough”, don’t “settle”, whatever you do; Do. Not. Stop! You are always worth the struggle. • • • #wls #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #kansasgirl #puertorican #sleevedandlovingit #classybutsassy #lifestylechange #getfit #supportgroup #wei#weightlosssurgery #postop #vsgcrew #weightloss #sleevedlife #NadiaGetsSwole #woman #instacrew #vsgfam #bringingsexyback

I have never taken a picture like this. It took courage. I have always feared the mirror. I cried while taking this before picture...but this me is me. I look forward to the new changes...i look forward to not avoiding the mirror at a clothing store or in my own home but for once to be able to look at that mirror and smile, instead of looking away and down.

It’s Wodensday and that means it’s time for this week’s #WLSWolfpackWednesday - a hashtag dedicated to recognizing the communities/individuals dedicated to betterment and upward motivation. This week’s iteration is dedicated to the folks at @riseabovefitness. RAF was started by Brandan from #BleedingThrough and promotes fitness through rad clothing (they also have a gym) for the alternative lifter and fitness-minded folks out there. Throw them a follow. Or don’t, IDGAF. Their determination to fitness and strength culture has been a huge inspiration for me. I’m going to scoop some wolf gear on my next payday. . . . . . . #vsg#wls#wlsfamily#vsgfam#wlsdenver#vsglife#vsgbro#wlsbros#vsgmen#vsgdenver#livebytheaxe#wlsmen#fitfam#fattofit#bariatricbros#vsgcrew#sharpentheaxe#skål#viking#timetoskullsomeprotein#feastfightrepeat#Úlfhéðnar#Úlfhéðinn#fitspo#extremeweightloss#weightlossjourney#fitspo#riseabovefitness

Mid month update, Ive lost another 10 lbs...down 60 since Oct. 🙏I have only told my boss and immediate coworker that I have had surgery, and I continue to wear my old clothes to cover up👀...I was wondering if anyone else in the wls community has done this or is doing this??👍👎 I feel very hesitant to wear clothes that show my weight loss because I don't want it to be a big deal. I have lost 80lbs in the past and gained it back plus 20😖. Even though this time I know it is gone for good I can't help but feel like people are judging me as a yo yo😔. Am I to much in my head ...what do you think?? . . Also, I just want to say watching @aint.nothin.but.a.sleeve.thang fearless live session yesterday was Amazing and her openness and bravery is so inspiring. Truely!!❤❤

J'avais un peu envie de m'amuser ce midi avec mon assiette, mais ce sont surtout les 15 centimètres de neige sur la terrasse qu'il a fallu affronter pour prendre cette photo (et oui, si vous vous posiez la question, mon oeuf a eu également le temps de refroidir !).

Everyone has resolutions for 2018... My goal for 2018 is to accept myself; flaws and all! It's crazy that I cared less about people's opinions at almost 400lbs than I do now at what I weighed when I was 14! Here's to hoping within 12 months I can learn to be happy with myself, do things alone without having a panic attack, deal with big crowds without anxiety, go places and not be uncomfortable the whole time and seriously just live!!! . . . . #wls #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #vsg #lifeafterweightloss #gastricsleevesurgery #lifeaftervsg #wei#wei#weightlosssurgeryney #vsginstacrew #wlsfamily #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgpostop #vsggirl #wlsseattle #wlsinstacrew #wlssupport #wlsjourney #150lbsdown #lost150lbs #bariatricsleeve #bariatriclife #vsgcrew #extremeweightloss #weightloss #mentalhealth

I had such a great birthday yesterday! My boyfriend spoiled me with dinner, a trip to the mall, and a game night with lots of air hockey. I’m one lucky girl and I think 27 will be a great year! 💕#wls #vsg#vsg #vsg #sleeved #sleevedsisters #weightlossjourney #wlsfam #bariatric

Last year my life spiraled out of control. I had a very large regain and it has me extremely sad. I have to change my way of thinking again and that’s easier said than done. 💭 • • • My husband and I had two miscarriages (one in February and one in September) and I lost my dad in November. 😔 • • • The best thing that came out of 2017 was our daughter graduating high school and then her being accepted to her first pick college. 👌🏽 • • • When I get this down in the dumps I have to do side by sides as a reminder of how far I’ve come. Never forget that you are stronger than you think. ✌🏽 • • • #vsg #vsgcrew #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #wls #wlscrew #willpower #weightloss #wlsjourney #sleevedlife #sleevesurgery #sleevegastrectomy #sleevegastrectomycommunity #behappy #bestrong #behealthy #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesupport #ripdad #truestory

Here is a little side profile action because I look better from the front. I still have pudge I have to get rid of, stupid stubborn lower belly fat. Also, my ass is legitimately flat now. Which is very new to me, I’ve always had a cute-ish butt but now...WHERE IT AT DOE?! 🍑🍑🍑 • • • #wls #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgcommunity #kansasgirl #puertorican #sleevedandlovingit #classybutsassy #lifestylechange #getfit #supportgroup #wei#weightlosssurgery #postop #vsgcrew #weightloss #sleevedlife #NadiaGetsSwole #woman #instacrew #vsgfam #bringingsexyback

Not woodworking related. Who knew that 7 months ago this shirt fit tight. That was a 2xl shirt and now i'm down to a medium. It's been a long journey. I admit to have lost my path a couple of times, the important lesson with this journey is to acknowledge you are doing yourself harm and go back to basics. Thanks to @vsg_queendiet and @vsgdee for being my inspiration and for your meal prep ideas.

However, tonight’s dinner was spot on!! You know it’s good when your kid can’t respond to you because he has a mouthful of falafel! Baked - not fried! Great recipe I will be sharing via my Pinterest! Also, whoever invented tzatziki sauce has my heart. 🤤😍👍#mediterraneanfood #meatless #fiber #vegetables #yum
