When I started I always felt so overwhelmed. It’s as if I felt like I was going to PRISON when starting a diet. I was stuck in the ‘all-or-nothing’ mentality...and ‘nothing’ won most of the time. . So I started with making small changes. Sugar free drinks instead of cokes. Taking half the bun off of my burger. Eggs instead of donuts. Then once I felt comfortable with that, I added the next thing. A walk around the block. Taking the stairs. Parking further out from the store. . Soon, these healthy choices became my new ‘normal’. They became easy! And as the pounds fell off...I had the motivation to keep making positive changes. . My encouragement to you is this: you don’t have to change everything at once. Don’t try to eat an entire elephant at one time. Start with one...bite...at...a...time. ❤️

Interval training has done me in this morning. I've got to rest my ITB for a few days so no running 😭😭 at least pull day on the new 2018 @ldn_muscle Cutting Guide was lit as fuuuuck, I feel so much better about training multigroups of muscles instead of just constricted to one. Push day in the morning 👌👌I'll probably have to bike or cross trainer - sigh 😤 #bariatriclife #transformation #wei#weightlossney #weightloss #bariatricbabes #vsg #vsgcommunity #motivation #diet #health #extremeweightloss #weightlossmotivation #wls #250lbsdown #vsgfamily #vsginstacrew #verticalsleeve #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #weightlosstransformation #fattofit #liloandstitch #stitch #thisgirlcan #fitbit #fitfam #morningworkout #tuesdaymotivation #ldnmladies #shredding

Accountabilityyyy!!! Meal prep at its finest. I am done making quick crappy choices. I'm here over a week now, it's time to get back on track hardcore! Spring mix with low fat feta, teriyaki tofu, shredded broccoli, carrots, beets and avocado 😍😍😍 #wlseats

✨Before and during✨ #transformationtuesday Forget about appearances and the physical part of this transformation... I wish I could show with pictures how much my emotions and my mental health have improved in such a short amount of time. #WLS is by far THE BEST thing I ever did for myself 🎉🙌🏼💖 #praisedasleeve #beforeandduring . . . . . . #wls#wlsjourney #vsg#vsg#vsgjourney #vsg #wls #vsglife #vsgcommunity #wlsfam #wls#wls#wlscommunityvsg #wlscommunity #wlsbabes #vsgdiaries #vsgjourney #vsgbabes #vsgaccountability #vsg#vsgsurgeryort #vsgsurgery #vsg#vsginstacrew #wlsinstafam #wlscommunityvsg #wlsurgery #vsginstacrew #vsgfamily #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricbabe #bariatricsupport

This was my reality. Pray for me there's a possibility I have to go back into surgery for the third time in the AM 🤦🏻‍♀️

I've decided to share the vulnerable reality of what losing 166+ lbs will do to your body. I abused my poor body for 17 years. I spoke unkind things about it and genuinely hated myself. Well let me tell you body. I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry. Your a good body, you always have be. I promise to try my best to speak kind to you, to treat you like the temple you are. I love you body and I'm sorry 😢

Bacon and eggs are life! I had to buy lunch today so just ditched the bread and this was very satisfying. I really do need to get better and preparing myself lunch for days like this though whoops 🙊

Saw this on a friends Facebook status update this morning. It definitely resonated with me after my crappy Monday. I know this isn't always easy to do especially if you are dealing with mental health issues. So it's not a one size fits all statement. But my issues on Monday that lead to a downward spiral were so trivial and I let them get to me much more than I should have. It seems to be an ongoing theme since being sleeved and no longer being able to emotionally eat away my feelings. #handsupalltheemotionaleaters 🙋🏼 One day I may even share the #slimeincident that lead to vodka on a Tuesday night. I even have video evidence. #itsnotpretty . . . #wollongongnswaustralia #weightlosssurgery #gas#gastricsleeveralia #vsg#vsgaustralia #vsgfamily #vsg #vsglife #vsgblog #healthyweightgoals #healthylifegoals #healthyliving #healthychoices #healthierme #gastricsleevelife #gastricsurgery #gastricsleeve #vsg#vsgcommunitysupport #vsgcommunity #weightlossjourney #weightlossdiary #weightlossstory #vsgjourney #lifestylechanges

8 years ago and today. I was about 280 there and preparing for my senior recital. I was unhappy, in an abusive relationship, and tried so hard to fit in. Now I’m 203 lbs, happy, and embrace all my weirdness. .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... .......................... ......... #transformation #wls#wlscrew #gastricsleeve #vsg#vsglems #vsgpostop #wls #wlslife #wlsfamily #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #vsg #vsgcrew #vsgbabe #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily#verticalsleeve #wei#weightlossney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #bruja #diabetes #diabetesfree #weightgurus #teachersofinstagram #weightloss #vsgeats #protien #bariatricsurgery #transformationtuesday

I ordered this sweater from Marley Lilly in a 3x last year because their stuff runs so small. It was still tight when I got it 😪 I am happy to say I put it on today and it is swimming on me! Yay for comfy snow day clothes 💁🏻‍♀️Happy Transformation Tuesday!

Oh, and it’s #transformationtuesday so why not give you every angle of my wrinkly ass. I have been on an almost 3 month stall. Instead of obsessing over it I’ve been measuring and although pounds are the same I’m blowing through inches. I think I’ve lost like .4 lbs since November, but I’ve lost 22 inches around my body and that’s bad ass if I do say so myself. 😎 #stillgotdemmrincrediblelegsdoe • • • • • #lovemylife #wls #vsg #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleeve #vsglife #wlsfamily #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #bariatriccommunity #bariatricsupport #january16th

Happy one year sleeve anniversary to me! Hands down best decision I’ve ever made for myself. I would have neeeeeever thought I’d post these befores. I remember taking them and wanting to die. But I’m no longer embarrassed to be that girl on the left. And I’m super proud of myself for working so hard to be the girl on the right. I was weird and never really thought poorly of myself before. I was overweight but I was hella hot, too. But now, I feel as good as I look, and that is freaking saweeeeet. Thanks to everyone that’s supported me the past year. Your words and thoughts have meant the world! 💖 • • • • • #lovemylife #wls #vsg #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #verticalsleeve #vsglife #wlsfamily #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsupport #bariatriccommunity #bariatricsupport #january16th

It's not how you start, it's how you finish... When you figure out near the end of a workout that your shoe is cutting the back of your ankle, you have two choices. 1. Call it a day and pack it up 2. Do what you need to do to finish I took option Don't mind my socks.... 🤣😂🖖🏽 . . . . . . #goals #accountability #wei#weightlossress #weightloss #wei#weightlosssurgerysupport #weightlosssurgery #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #bariatricsurgery #weightlossmotivation #fitness  #thickfit  #vsgjourney #vsgfamily #wls#wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wls #Workout #gymlife #gastricsleeve #weightlosstransformation #weightlossgoals #bodypositive #extremeweightloss #beforeandduring

#transformationtuesday Time for another comparison picture! I think I am most shocked about the difference in my neck and how small my waist has gotten, now if only my hips would follow haha.

Gray slacks addition of #tra#transformationday !!! 3x MATERNITY slacks(my baby was 10 months old🙊) that were way too tight and a 3x sweater vs size small shirt and juniors size 7 slacks that are too big on my waist. #winning #extremeweightloss #extremetransformation #transformation #fattofit #vsgsuccess #vsgmotivation #vsginspiration #rainesvsgjourney #rainesrecoveryafterplastics #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #verticalgastricsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #vsgfamily #vsgfattofit #wlsjourney #wlscommunity
