Respect your journey!
Recognize where you are, from where you've been!

This is a 2 year difference!
I've aged....like a lot πŸ˜‚ 
I guess life does that to your face πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ,
Man just looking at the girl on the left, where my head was at,
the crap I tolerated,
what I put my body through,
the people I allowed to influence my life,
it was ALL apart of a greater planπŸ’–
.

We must forgive the past! However we MUST respect its purpose for our future Amen?! πŸ’–

A little late, but here's my #transformationtuesday  not a huge difference, but it's there. This is only the beginning! .
.
@green_eyed_girl88 asked me about some of my ups and downs since I am #4weekspostop. Honestly, one of my worst fights is with food right now, I keep overeating and then feel sick for a while. I'm finally learning what my tummy sounds like when I'm done. The damn scale is another down for me. It's barely moved in the last week, only down 1 lb, but with my overall measurements, I'm down another 5+ inches this week. As for the ups,  when you go to the store and try on a smaller size, and it fits, it's an amazing feeling. Being able to go to the gym and push myself farther each time feels awesome. .

When at this point.. #TransformationTuesday isn't solely about the size of your body, but the size of your smile.
What I've learned along the way that the mental aspect of this journey is just as hard, perhaps even harder, than the physical aspect.
You can force yourself to workout or eat clean.. but if you don't do it with the foundation because you care for yourself or love your body.. those actions won't become habits.. and those habits won't become a lifestyle.
I rollercoastered with my weight for years because along with hating myself, I'd try to lose weight for all the wrong reasons (validation from others, the "maybe I'll be attractive then", to "no longer be the fat friend", the list goes on).
I was also under the impression and had this insane idea that once I lost a certain amount of weight I'd then be happy... as if that was what would give me true happiness -- SO not the case.  Looking back now, how does that even make sense?
So you go on hating yourself and your body for years... and continue to hate it as you lose 60 pounds... once you hit 'goal' -- all that hate is apparently going to vanish? No. It's not.
What I've learned in the last 8 months is hating your body will never get you as far as loving it will.
We're in our bodies for a while, it's time we get comfortable in them -- and begin loving it once again. 
Do we treat those in our lives that we care for and love with disrespect? Not at all.
So why don't we do the same for ourselves?
We are deserving of it because we are worthy. You are worthy. Because at any stage of your journey, you alone are enough. πŸ’›

The days when I don't get my way...
The days when I can't control certain outcomes...
The days when I just want to lay down and rest....
EVERYDAY I feel ALL of these waves hit my mind and body...
.
.
.
EVERYDAY I have power over me!
My choices affect everything!
Yes I'm tired,
Yes sometimes I'm lonely,
Yes I'm insecure,
Yes I second guess every single thing I do.
.
.
.
But I do it! Again and again and again!
Fly or Fall, Sink or Swim, Make or Break,

EVERYDAY.......TRY!

I don't think improved sleep is a result of surgery except for sleep apnea, so I guess I'm just asking for anecdotes! -

Meal prep Tuesday! Used that Korean BBQ rub, lime juice, coconut oil, habanero hot sauce, and garlic as an overnight marinade, then threw the chicken and veggies on the grill.  Came out SO GOOD SERIOUSLY

So thankful that Firehouse now has a "small" option for their sub size. I ate about half of this small size. I used to eat a large size sub plus a bag of chips, a large Dr. Pepper, and a brownie. I'm so thankful for this tool and its ability to help me curb my addictions. No one needs all that food unless their name is Michael Phelps and they're training for their 72nd Olympics and/or racing a live shark (and yes he's racing a live shark for shark week haha). πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ¦ˆπŸŠπŸΌ

Hit up my boxing class this morning and ended with a tomato face πŸ˜‚ went for a short little walk at lunch and then tonight I forgot to record it but I did an arm workout!

I don't know why it felt so hard to post this picture after I've already posted pictures of myself in my underwear on here but for some reason this felt more intimate. Last year in April is when I went in for the seminar for surgery and I weighed somewhere around 325lbs, I wore a size 24-26 in bottoms from Target and my swim top was from Lane Bryant and was my bras size. As of last week I weigh 242lbs, I am wearing a size 18-20 bottoms from Walmart and my top is a size 15/17 also from Walmart. I have not been this small in 10 years maybe longer. And no my body isn't tan or perfect but it is my body and I am so happy with how I feel and how I look right now that I can't help but want to show everyone the progress that I have made. I still have days where I keep forgetting that I am no longer the girl in the all black bathing suit and then I look at this picture or I look in the mirror to remind myself of how far I've come and how far I have to go. #vsgjourney#vsgcommunity#vsgsupport#vsgsurgery#wlsjourney#wlscommunity#wlssupport#wlssurgery#vsginstacrew#vsgfamily#bariactricbabes

Last minute Transformation Tuesday!! November 2016 ➑️ June 2017

I'd say at least 50-60 lbs separate these photos. I'm able to run over a mile now, where before I couldn't even run a quarter of a mile. I feel so much better! 😊

120 pounds separate these two pictures. Sometimes I see it. Sometimes I don't. But I definitely always feel it. -

I am always on the hunt for a good creamer for my β˜•οΈ coffee. I have never been able to drink black coffee maybe it's my childhood history of always having milk in my tea.πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ so when I saw this creamer from @califiafarms I jumped on it. I cannot wait to try it. . . . . . . #wls  #vsg  #vsginstacrew  #sleeve  #weightloss  #fightobesity  #sweat  #fat2fit  #strong  #healthy  #fitnurse  #squats  #thickthighs  #fitchick  #fitnurse  #nurse  #plussizeyoga  #blackgirlyoga  #blackgirlmagic  #nurse  #fitnessmotivation  #curlyhair  #curvywomen  #curvyyogi  #naturalhair  #trillyoga  #effyourbeautystandards 
I was so irritated when I got to the gym today but somehow I turned that irritation into energy lol. I jogged for almost 13 minutes without stopping. Like, who the hell am I? 😁😁 °

I was so caught off guard but after the rest of my workout I got back on and did another 10 mins. Stayed in peak HR zone majority of the time too. This turned my mood ALL the way around. I'm amazed at what my body is able to accomplish these days. #NSV.

Does anyone else get hangry? Im sure this surgery was supposed to get rid of the hunger hormone!! While I don't get hungry like I used to, now I feel like I need to eat every couple of hours and it really affects my mood if I don't... as my boyfriend knows too well πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

HOKAY, so. Laying on the floor Bc I'm nasty sweaty & also Bc I can't get up. Tonight I did 80 flights of stairs in 21 mins, which was exciting and surprising - my left knee is SO EFFING WEAK. Realizing it's going to take some time to get it back to a decent place. But I had a killer workout, burning over 500cals & my shoulders are still shaking πŸ˜…. Going to make some chicken & veggies for din! Happy Tuesday, fam!! // #wls #vsg

Today there was supposed to be a 4th of July picnic at work and I was dreading it because it's the day before my surgery and I can't eat! A miracle happened and the picnic was postponed due to rain!!! My last day at work couldn't have gone better! My coworkers got me a really sweet card as well and I might have teared up a little because I'm such a sap. Tomorrow's the day! T-Minus 9 hours til I'm on the #losersbench

The hair loss struggle is real. My hair has always been super fine and the amount I've lost just makes me look bald when it's wet. I've been struggling with this for a little bit but honestly I would gladly rather deal with thin hair than being 340lbs. Some trade offs are just worth it. #hairloss #kaitlinlosesbig #vsg #vsgfamily #vsginstacrew #wls #wlsjourney #ilookbald #ugh #hopefullyonlytemporary
When you go from 248 to 137, had a baby less then a year ago and exceeded all ur weight loss goals u the real MVP #vsg #vsgjourney #goal #wlscommunity #transformationtuesday #change #momlife #blessed #fatgirlinaskinnybody #sleeved #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgbeforeandafter
Important to remember the starting point, and to remind myself that it's a journey that'll last as long as I do πŸ‘£πŸŒ

That hair flip tho. πŸ’πŸ»
I wanted to experiment with my headstand at the end of the day, as opposed to at the very beginning of the day. It was easier and I was able to straighten up a bit more and relax a bit more. πŸ’…πŸΌ
