Ok so I knew excess skin would be a probable side effect of WLS - especially the baggy arms. What I didn’t know is how hard this would make it to shave! The skin just moves it’s so annoying! Anyone else experience this!!! 🤯😳🙄 #firstworldproblems #excessskin #arms .

Just had another hot steamy date with my favorite set of stairs. Had #goals of 200, but was so starving I had to stop. That’s ok, 200 flights in one night, I’m coming for you next! #fitbit

When you get this surgery nobody tells you that your world is going to turn upside down. Not just your own but also of all the people around you... family, friends, and acquaintances, even people you just met, all get affected in one way or another... Everything changes and nothing is the same... And this is all happening just because I wanted to extend my life expectancy... To improve my quality of life and to be able to fulfill my dreams and to reach goals .... And sometimes those same people are the ones who turn their backs and leave you alone ... Just because they do not know how to handle the situation. Others come into your life and you start to wonder if they have an ulterior motive. So, your walls build up. You don't know who to trust because you can't even trust those closest to you... But, because I now weigh a few pounds less does not mean that I will change ... If there are any habits and customs that have to change, I will change them for the better, but I'm going to be the same person as always. The same asshole state of mind will remain intact whether I'm 600lbs or 250lbs... Btw I did not fit in those chairs before!

My thighs have ALWAYS been my number #1 insecurity! Like paralyzing fear of showing my legs my whole life. I grew up with an auto immune disorder called Hidradenitus Suppurativa (HS), leaving deep tissue scarring and ugly reminders of my past and this is the first time I've ever even attempted to speak out about it. If you have suffered with this condition or know someone who has, it's horrifically painful and causes even worse emotional trauma leading to thoughts of suicide because you literally feel like an ugly monster who will never find a cure and everyday the scars become more and more shameful.... I want you to know you have a friend in me! Weight loss was just the beginning of my healing process, my heart and mind decide everyday to carry on with the rest of it💜#hidradenitissuppurativa #silentwarrior #hsawareness #vsg #verticalsleeve @hsawarenessnomoresilence  #wlscrew #wls #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgbeforeandafter #weightloss #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #weightlosssupport #trainandtransform  #instafitness #hisnameisjesus  #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgsurgery #vsgpostop #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgbeforeandafter #gastricsleeve #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightlossmotivation  #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #wlstransformation

I've really been focusing on my back and legs in the gym lately.
.
Trying to ensure I'm setting my body up to smash out 2018 hard and savage!
.
Working hard on my posture, building the supporting muscles and straightening my spine to ensure I'm able to use the correct technique when lifting.
.
Also, 2-3 leg days a week lately. Trying to strengthen and grow the wheels so I'm able to burn more fat and lift heavier stuff!

DON'T DO IT!!! Go to the market and buy your own! These chewable CHALK ass vitamins are the reason I'm struggling to get my supplements in...they make me nauseated. The nasal spray vitamin B isn't bad but the rest is awful. Hoping they send me capsules this month... #vsg #vsgsurgery #vsgcommunity #vsgeats #vsginstacrew #vsginstafam #weightlosssurgery #wls #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricbabes #c0d3rg1rl83

What is your favorite way to measure your weight loss?

Scale? Measuring tape? Clothing fit? Photos?

Mine is photos and candid photos are the absolute best way for me to measure and accept my weight loss as a reality.

Feels good to be proud of my progress again. Even with 11 lbs of regain left, I’m still 117 lbs down! The biggest difference is how I just take better care of myself. Doing my hair and make up every day, getting my nails done. It was almost as if I felt I didn’t deserve that before. We deserve that kind of self love at all times. I hate that it took me so long to learn that, but I’m happy I finally did. #transformationtuesday #vsg #vsgpostop #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #wls #wlspostop #wlsjourney #wlsinstacrew #weightloss #lowcarb

Edit: I was told I should use a more recent picture. So, since I'm not a 2 post for TT person, it's in my stories.

So my awesome roommate gave me my belated Christmas gift.... a defense ring for when I go running! We have a running joke where I tell him “if I’m not back in an hour I’m injured or kidnapped- come find me!” Every time I go for a run. Guess he wanted me to be able to defend myself 💪

Happy #transformationtuesday y’all! 280ish on the left (not my highest), 165 on the right. 25 pounds til goal! Crazy town. •

I think it’s really important to say that I was so, so unhappy with my body, my mindset, and all that goes into that. The number on the scale gives me a goal, yes. But the BIG goal is to be happy. No matter what your scale says or what size clothing you wear - are you happy? Because that’s a bigger part of the battle. If you’re not happy, change something. 💛

Taking the time to take care of myself. Pulled this beautiful card today at a wellness session. A great reminder that no matter what’s going on right now, I need to breathe. “Inhale deeply, regardless of your concerns, worries, or problems; then let them go.” #determined #leakygut #candida #wellness #wls #weightloss #wlsinspirations #igotthis #confidence #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsginstagram #wlsjourney  #wlsproblems #lifeaftervsg
This was SO GOOD! Eggs with ground beef, onions, cheese, cilantro, and offff course a side of avocado. I love that you can do so many different things with eggs. Eggs are wonderful lol....

Highest weight on the left and current weight on the right. I started my bariatric program at 276.5 pounds in August 2016. Started my two week pre-op liquid diet at 266 pounds. Weighed in at 244 pounds on surgery day. I had VSG surgery April 4, 2017. Can’t believe I am getting close to my one year mark! Holy buckets!

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY! • I officially am backroll FREE! That’s insane! Alex took some (nearly) 7 month post op photos and he showed it to me and I was like “I HAVE NO BACKROLLS!” And he replied with - “you didn’t know that???” Hahaha! 
Struggling with some stalls and photos like this ALWAYS bring me back to reality! ❤️ #transformationtuesday #selfmotivation #vsg

So....in May of 2017, my family got the opportunity to compete on Family Feud. It was honestly such a cool experience and was so much fun! We’ve been waiting for over 6 months now to find out when our episode will air, and we just got the email with our air date. Now that it’s almost here, I’m kind of freaking out. I felt terrible about myself that day. I bought ten different dresses and felt awful in all of them. I was so large that I was sweating under the camera lights and a production assistant had to bring me a towel. I am not looking forward to seeing myself on television-- after all, the camera adds ten pounds, and I was already 83 pounds heavier then. In addition, I still have residual embarrassment about some of the actual moments from the show that I don’t want anyone to see/experience. I’m honestly dreading watching this, and I don’t know how to turn my mentality around. Help!! (Excuse me as I freak out.) .

I am not looking forward to seeing myself on television-- after all, the camera adds ten pounds, and I was already 83 pounds heavier then. In addition, I still have residual embarrassment about some of the actual moments from the show that I don’t want anyone to see/experience. I’m honestly dreading watching this, and I don’t know how to turn my mentality around. Help!! (Excuse me as I freak out.) . . . . . . . #wls  #wlscommunity  #wlsjourney  #weightloss  #weightlossjourney  #vsg  #vsgcommunity  #weightlosssurgery  #bariatric  #bariatricbabe  #bariatricsurgery  #vsginstacrew  #weight  #progress  #transformation 
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. Thank you!

First time lifting since surgery. I took this video near the end of my session today but dang—a lot of my strength and muscle mass is gone. This is 65lbs—over 20 lbs less than the last time I benched but I still struggled to get up to ten reps. Excited to get back in the weight room at #CHS thanks to the @mplswarriors. #girlswholift #lifting #prettystrong #ismellgood #weightroom #strongwomen #workout #wls #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #weightloss #workinonmyfitness #strength

Sarah : it’s Catch Up time again for the #januaryphotochallenge.  I think I’m just awful about doing this on the weekends.  So my #lastsong and #guiltypleasure are really one in the same. I can’t help it, .38 Special is one of my favorite bands.  I can always love on this song #sorrynotsorry.  When it comes to #hydrate I always focus on my Tervis cup.  I know exactly how many I need and at what point during the day to be able to get all my water 💧 in!  I’ll catch up the rest tomorrow so I don’t overwhelm y’all! #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgliving #vsgbabe #vsginstacrew #vsginstafam #wls #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #losingweight #losingittogether #weightloss #weightlossjourney

3 month post op check in. I’m down 52 lbs, which hasn’t changed since New Years Eve. I’ll take a stall over gaining anyday. Lol... Although, the scale isn’t moving right now, I can tell I’m losing inches. I’ve parted with all of my jeans, and my shirts went from a 3X to a 1X. I’ve also officially began losing the girls (😭), in the past month I’ve dropped a full cup and band size. Some days, I can’t believe how quickly things are changing,. Most days I don’t see what everyone else sees, but when I do it’s bittersweet. Overall I’m super happy with my progress and I can’t wait to see where else this journey leads. 💜
