In a photo this doesn’t look like much, but keep in mind I have blonde, straight, not thick hair. I lose about this much every time I wash my hair now (every 2-3 days), and not quite this much every time I brush my hair about twice a day. It’s alarming. I feel like this is one of those things we all know to expect and dread but when it happens to you it is still scary and sad. I know it will be worth it in the long run but I’m scared how long this will go on for. My hair is feeling so thin already. I hope it stops soon and starts regrowing! Has anybody done tape in extensions during this phase? Another stylist and I are doing each other’s Extensions next week but I’m still a bit hesitant to add any extra stress on the hair. But I hate it thin too. Gotta hit those protein goals!!!

Just for funsies... a few side by side comparisons. When I forget how far I've come, it's nice to see the difference and be reminded. #wls#wlsly #wlscommunity #wls #rny#rnycommunity #rnyinstacrew #rnyfamily #rny #gastricbypass #rouxeny #weightloss #weightlossjourney #transformation #weightlosstransformation #workout #exercise #caloriesburned #splatpoints #ora#orangetheoryess #orangetheory #otf #100lbsdown #150lbsdown

A complete stranger gave me the best advice today. Be patient, she said. I’ll remember that whenever I look to the future. #changewillcome

Forever shocked at the changes in my face. My cheeks are so much less full, and my eyes too!! First photo is from a few years ago about 30lb below my HW. Second photo is from tonight. Love spending time with my mom ❤️❤️ . . . . . #vsg #vsgfamily #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #bar#bariatricve #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #rny #weightloss #weightlossjourney #extremeweightloss #bariatricbabes #teamlosing #tinytummy #wls#wls#wlscrew #wlscrew #wlstories #wls #losingweight #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #wls#wlsfamily #wlsfam #wlssupport #instafollow #followback

For #WLSpals2018 • 1) Travel! Husband and I getting into woodworking and furniture refurbishing some. Lots of family time and activities. 2) Home Improvement 3) I love being a hairstylist actually. I think being a published author would be incredibly cool too! 4) Hitting my goal weight! Becoming debt free hopefully. And growing my business! 5) I was very unhappy as a restaurant manager. People suck and the hours were terrible. 6) Maybe Parenthood... 7) Stay debt free and stick to your budget! Also to eat right so I would have never gained the weight... 8) I feel successful when I achieve goals I set for myself. Problem is it's never ending... 9) Anywhere with water and a killer view. Tahoe is awesome bc you can be at the lake and also have a mountain view. But I love the beach or anywhere that just feels peaceful. 10) Crap TV 11) Bass Pro or Macy's or HomeGoods....idk there's so many! 12) Empathetic, Emotional, Determined 13) My son & husband & our health

I️ have had my instagram for years now. But here are a couple things I️ have noticed since sharing my #wls#wls#wlsp journey. First thing, 99.9% of my followers I️ have known in real life for years have yet to be supportive in any way regarding my decision to bring on a better version of me. I️ am not sure how I️ feel about that. Honestly. And my second thing, why the hell do some of the guys on here think I️ want to get messages from them telling me how beautiful I️ am, etc. seriously? I️ am effing beautiful but I️ surely don’t need some Random guys messaging me saying so. Do you think that because I’m having #wls, I️ am in desperate need for guys to tell me I️ am beautiful? I️ don’t. I️ am beautiful. Now. And I️ will be beautiful after surgery too. #abetterversionofme #wlspreop #wls#wlsfamily #wlscommunity #rnypreop #rnyinstafam #rnyinstacrew #rnygastricbypass #rnygastricbypasssurgery #vsg #vsgpreop #vsgcommunity #vsginatacrew #iamblessed #iambeautiful #iloveme #ieffingrock #lifeisgood

I have a few #reasonswhy I’m choosing to have a #vsg#vsg #wls#wls but my #1 reasons is this beautiful little girl! I NEVER want to have to tell her no to an activity because of my size. She’ll be 1 in a few days and my life has completely changed since she was born. I need to be my best self for her! . #vsgpreop #vsg #vsgcommunity #verticlesleeve #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsgcrew #wls #wlscommunity #wlsfamily

This is Ena, my nurse who took such good care of me after my #ver#verticalsleeverectomy almost 3 years ago! She was so patient with me and had no idea I worked at her hospital until I was about to be discharged...I seldom run into her in the halls but when I do she’s incredulous at the continued transformation and I always reciprocate with a big bear hug!! Nurses do a lot behind the scenes guys, sometimes don’t ever break for lunch nor get to use the bathroom....they are an amazing group of women and men and I have the utmost respect for RN’s (majority) #throwbackthursday #tbt #bariatricsurgery #wls #wlscommunity #wlsbros #vsg #verticalsleeve #wlsfamily

It’s clearly a wrap kind of day! Late lunch on the go = ham, cheese, pickle, & mayo on a low carb tortilla. I ate about half.

SO! I'm stalled...again! I've been bouncing between 165-167 for the last two weeks and it's killing me! I want to be at 160 before my brachioplasty on the 29th so badly that it hurts 😔 I'm considering doing my pre-op liquid diet but Christmas is 3 days before my surgery! I suppose I could start tomorrow but with the stress of finals week I feel like that's asking for binge behavior 😒 ugh...just going to continue to work out and eat healthy! I'll get there eventually!
