Thinking about exploring the world of keto. Found a calculator that suggested these stats but the fat content looks crazy!

You guys this pizza is #LEGIT! 140 calories for 1/4 of the pizza...that's 2 slices! I topped it with basil, tomatoes, low fat mozzarella and sliced salami. ~600 calories for 3 slices and I'm STUFFED! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿคช . . . . #wls#wlson #wlsstrong #wlsapproved #wlscommunity #wlsfam #wlsfamily #wlslife #wlsdaily #wlsing #wls #rny#rnyition #wlsnutrition #wlseats #wlsfood #rny#rnyfood #rnyfood #rny #gastricbypass #vsg #sleeve #gastricsleeve #wei#weightlosssurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit#fitfam #fitchick #fit #fitlife

You don't have to go all out to have a healthy, epicurean meal on a casual saturday! I was craving something indulgent but know I need to stick to my meal plan so I compromised a bit and jazzed up a Chipotle cheddar salad kit with chicken tenders, avocado, corn and tomatoes! A little siracha on top and you've got yourself a rwstaurant-worthy meal right at home and UNDER 400 calories! ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป . . . . . #wls#wlson #wlsstrong #wlsapproved #wlscommunity #wlsfam #wlsfamily #wlslife #wlsdaily #wlsing #wls #rny#rnyition #wlsnutrition #wlseats #wlsfood #rny#rnyfood #rnyfood #rny #gastricbypass #vsg #sleeve #gastricsleeve #wei#weightlosssurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit#fitfam #fitchick #fit #fitlife

#facetoface Friday! Ten years and close to 80 lbs between these two. On the right I was probably about 270 lbs...50 lbs under my heaviest weight. Today I'm just under 200 lbs and couldnt be happier! This journey has been so up and down and sure I'm not at my goal just yet but I sure as shit have not lost sight of it! The last 3 years have taken me through excitement, freedom, confidence, power, loss, confusion, heartbreak, challenge, new love, new friendship, regret, opportunities and an abundance of lessons learned. There's no telling what else is on the agenda but I'm ready for it! . . . . . #wls#wlson #wlsstrong #wlsapproved #wlscommunity #wlsfam #wlsfamily #wlslife #wlsdaily #wlsing #wls #rny#rnyition #wlsnutrition #wlseats #wlsfood #rny#rnyfood #rnyfood #rny #gastricbypass #vsg #sleeve #gastricsleeve #wei#weightlosssurgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit#fitfam #fitchick #fit #fitlife

Dinner is served! Spinach-parm chicken meatballs with zoodles in a homemade marinara. Alright people. This is real healthy-ish comfort food! Full-flavored foods like this really calm me, and make me feel warm and cozy inside. It's a product of my childhood - family around the table sharing yummies and laughing with each other. Unfortunately it's also a lot of what got me to my heaviest weight. Food was my security blanket and it was always there for me no matter what. Finding a balance with foods that comfort me has been absolutely key to keeping my weight off post-wls. I ALWAYS indulge when I feel the urge but I also ALWAYS make sure I'm substituting healthy options wherever I can - hence the zoodles spinach and chicken! How do you find balance between indulgence and comfort?!

One lonely taco remains... Its true, one taco fills me up, but after about 15 minutes I will be hungry enough to eat the second one. After 3 years I'm still restricted and cannot indulge in pasta, rice or bread without discomfort, but my hunger isn't immediately curbed after I eat.

I have some extra time for breakfast today cause I'm working from home, so I whipped up some turkey bacon breakfast tacos and a strong ass cup of coffee to wake my brain. It's been so chilly lately that getting out of bed, even for coffee, is so freaking hard!

Three years ago today. How my life has completely and totally changed. It's too incredible to describe with words. It's a whole slew of feelings, anxieties, frustrations, desires, challenges and tests. But I have never looked back and never regret my choice to have #wls. If I have one piece of advice to give, it would be to not EXPECT your life to get easier. Don't get me wrong, it will in many ways...but it will also become harder in many ways that you won't be able to anticipate. It will demand strength you won't even know you have, but you have to allow all your new challenges to teach you lessons. You will learn about strangers, family, friends, lovers and - most importantly - yourself, so you can be the very best version of yourself when you reach your goals. I'm still not where I thought I'd be three years ago, but I'm a hell of a lot closer than I have ever been before, and I'm #thankful for every challenge that has brought me to today. โค๏ธโœŒ๐Ÿป

So I'm very grateful for the Bariatric Team with Harbin Clinic... In my previous post I mentioned that I had been struggling and making poor decisions so I reached out to my dietician and she gave me the help I needed, she sent me reminders with basic info that I needed but also a 5 Day Pouch Test Detox I started yesterday and let me say it's not the easiest thing but it is definitely what I needed... When you are losing weight you must realize diets end but you need to make it a lifestyle change and being a wife and a mom and just being busy in life makes it hard to keep to your healthy lifestyle but don't be afraid to ask for help... There is no reason to try to carry the weight of the world by ourselves use the tools you've been given and get help and be the help to others!! #weightlossjourney #weightlosssupport #weightlosscommunity #weightlosssurgery #bariatricsupport #bariatricssurgery #bariatricproblems #verticalgastricsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #sle#sleevedlife #sleeved #wls #wlsapproved #wlscommunity #vsgcommunity #vsgfamily #vsgsurgery #myheadiskillingme #proteinproteinprotein

How do you keep your sweet tooth from taking over?! I've been craving sweets so bad since we got off or cleanse two weeks ago and right now my go-to is fruit and gum...Water helps too but I often find myself just wanting a soda. ๐Ÿ™„ What are your tips for killing a nagging sweet tooth?

Made some salmon tonight. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. It was pretty bland other than the seasoning the recipe called for. This is probably the first time I've had anything fish related in 20 years.
