Yesterday I was asked what was I working out to in the video I posted. Well, this is it- Turbo Jam! It’s one of the old school workouts by Beachbody. Back in the day this was my favorite workout DVD. I would do it all the time. Since I’m just getting back into working out regularly, I wanted to do something that I was familiar with so I went on the hunt for it online (left my DVD in NJ when I moved years ago). I found the DVD on Amazon but something told me to search Beachbody online and I discovered that they had an On Demand Channel. In addition to Turbo Jam, I used to do P90X (many moons ago when I was in my 20’s) and some of the workouts by Shaun T. That being the case, I figured I’d eventually be back in good enough shape to do those again as well. So I signed up for the On Demand channel and have been using it ever since. It comes with a plethora of options and while I’m glad to have tons to choose from, I’m gonna stay true to my Beachbody roots and work it out to Turbo Jam for a while🤣. If you’ve tried any of Beachbody products, let me know which ones you like. If you haven’t, you might want to consider it. They have something for everyone, at all fitness levels.

I have hardly any full length pictures of me I had to go digging for this one! Funny how you shy away from full body shots when you’re ashamed of your body image. 8 weeks post op and can see a bit of diff in my face especially god dam thunder thighs are going to take some work 😂#wls #gastricbypass #gasticbypasssurgery #gasticbypasschangedmylife #rny #rnygastricbypasssurgery #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #beforeandafterweightloss #iveboughtamirrornow #juststarting #thunderthighs #sparetyre #hatepicturesofmyself #wlsuk

Back to #mealprep I go. Working out 5 days a week I feel like I should be losing weight faster. My surgeon told me he wanted me to hit my personal weight goal before consulting Plastics but this last 20-23lb sis taking forever. I havent been tracking my calories for a few months so to find the problem Im going back to the basics. Any premade items I use for timesaving sake I make sure is prepared same day in store. I will be removing the skin from the rotisserie and removing the meat.Breakfast will either be boiled eggs or a protein shake. . . . . . . . . . #HappySunday #VSG #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgjourney #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosssupport #weightlosssurgery #bariatric #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass #gastricband #lapband #sleeved #sleevedlife #vsgeats #vsgpostop #vsgpreop #keto #ketofriendly

Half marathon- I’m comin’ for ya! • • Did I want to quit about 45 times during this run- abso-fuggin-lutley. Did I quit? Hell no! Especially after Ted reminded me that when you want to quit- that means you’re at 40% so ya gotta keep going! Pretty proud of my elf for being able to run for over an hour and make it 7 miles with a .3 mile cool down afterwards. Next goal- 10 miles! • • • • #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #motivation #inspire #inspiration #strongnotskinny #strongwomen #fit #fitgirl #fitnessmotivation #fitgirls #goals #bodylove #nurse #wls #vsg #vsgcommunity #wlscommunity #loveyourself #fitspo #nevergiveup #riseandgrind #run #runner #runners #exercise #runninggirl #noexcuses #halfmarathontraining

When you have a #bariatric breakfast this pretty and satisfying it makes being sick not so terrible. Looks like today will be filled with rest (hopefully sleep😭😷🙏) , hot tea, my computer, Netflix and HBO. I had big plans for this weekend for a Beautycounter Holiday Open House and a fun coffee shop work day but it looks like my body and health is saying (and did say) “NOPE!” so I’m listening and strangely I’m a-ok with it. What are you all doing on this Sunday? . . #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #gastricbypass #gastricsleeve #gastricband #gastricballoon #lapband #duodenalswitch #minibypass #bariatricsurgery #bariatricnutrition #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgeats #rouxeny #rny #rnyeats #rnycommunity #rnyjourney #glutenfree #grainfree #nutrition

Meal Prep Sunday! I most definitely attribute my weight loss to planning ahead and logging/weighing my meals. Because if you don’t log, how can you possibly know how much you ate? Especially if you are struggling with weight loss, logging can be a great tool to help you figure out where you are overeating calories. • This took me about 3 hours. But now I’m free the rest for the week! No guesswork and I stay on track. Keeping it pretty basic this week since this month is filled with so many food festivities. 🎄 Breakfast 1: 1/2 cup cooked steel cut oats with 1 tbsp almonds and 2 tbsps powdered on and 2oz of berries and a hb egg. I will also have a black coffee with 2 scoops of collagen powder Lunch: mini spinach burger with pickle, roasted Brussel sprouts and paleo coleslaw and mini guacamole Snack: yogurt (will add 1 scoop of collagen, not shown) Dinner: oven roasted skinless boneless chicken thighs with broccoli purple sweet potato Not shown post workout sfh recovery after leg day workout. This is under 1500 calories—C: 109 g (80 g net), F: 57 g, P: 134 g. This is just an example of what a week’s worth of meals can look like; keep in mind that everyone’s intake is going to be different depending on their size, gender, activity level. I might each more or less depending on the day. As requested, this week will be protein week. I am going to be posting more visuals and examples of what to eat in a day. • Any more requests?

Happy Sunday!! Welcome week 18!! Still feeling good and definitely feeling bigger. It’s a total mental game right now with getting bigger: I’ve spent the last 2 year focusing on losing weight and getting smaller and to make that switch that I need to be eating more and gaining weight/get bigger but I’m growing my baby boy and that’s the most important thing! And asking Rob if u look pregnant is a totally loaded question .... there’s no right answer 😂😂 sometimes I want him to say I look the same and sometimes I want him to say he sees the baby bump so I try to just not ask 😂😂 #wls #wlscommunity #pregnant #pregnancyafterwls #pcospregnancy #pregnantstyle #pregnantbelly #18weekspregnant #2ndtrimester #westinwilliamhall

Day 17 I exercise/move because.... What’s your why? Is it just simply to change your body? Or is it to make your body feel good? #wls #bodypositive #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #findyourgroovedec18

On a last minute weekend get away feeling skinny and whatnot 😂😀

NSV comfortably fitting into a theatre chair. :-) If this was last year I would of been stressing about the size of the chairs all day/week. Not anymore 💞We had a great time in Ogden Utah with our wonderful friends/family. We went and saw “A Fairly Potter Christmas Carol” at the Ziegfeld Theater and ate at the Pig & Jelly Jar. Amazing play and amazing food with amazing friends. 💓 #christmas2018 #potterhead #newtradition #nsv #duodenalswitch #ds #wls #wlscommunity #weightlossjourney #weightloss #pcos #pcosfighter

2016 Christmas party... vs 2018 ... even I know I glowed TF up 😂👌🏻 I was feeling down on myself for eating a bit more the last couple of weeks but then I remembered how much I used to eat on the left.. and I’m just so much healthier now.. It’s gonna take more than a couple cheat days to go back to the person on the left... 🤔 I was well over 19 stone on the left and in a size 24 dress. On the right I’m in a size 12 that’s a little baggy as I’ve had it for months and never worn it ✌🏻 #weightloss #weightlossstory #weightlossjourney #wls #transformation #christmasparty #thenandnow #weightlosstransformation #health #fitness #gymlife #diet #fattofit #results #progress #weightlossprogress #beforeandafter #bodypositive #bodypositivity #weightlossinspiration #instagood #instadaily #nevergiveup #wlscommunity

2015 —> 2018, shirt edition! Keep some of the clothes you wore at/around your heaviest so you can compare later. This was my 23rd birthday, And on the right is around my 26th birthday.

I learned something interesting today! Eating these gummy bears after a workout is good for you. I have about 4-5 after a good, cardio session. 💪🏽 “It replenishes your muscle glycogen levels after your workout, you need to consume high-glycemic carbohydrates, which will digest quickly in your body.” #wls #wlscommunity #wlstransformation #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlsinstacrew #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #sleevesurgery #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #rny #rnycommunity #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevecommunity #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #bariatricsupport #bariatric #wlseats #wlsfood

Nominated for a last song, selfie, and quote by @sleeved.in.seattle. Last song would be all the fantastic music from Waitress yesterday. 🎶 Butter, sugar, flour 🎶 Selfie was from the Gaiser Conservatory lighted greenhouse. It is stunning. I however, will probably not be rocking black lipstick anymore. Its just not my jam but I tried. Last quote was something I shared with my husband... I mean, am I right??

Couple of morning miles for streak day 36, and then posing with some new Yuletide friends.

Bu bir itiraf postudur 😬 ekmek yedim az önce 3 ısırık kadar 🙈 hemde labne sürdüm yedim, kızarmıştı ekmek 🙄 öğlenden kalan mercimek ve ıspanaklı yumurtamı ve salatamıda yedim. E doğal olarak mantara yer kalmadı. Bu arada ekmek oturdu mideme sanrm uzuuuuunca bi süre kendi ekmeklerim ( kıtır, grissini ve alman ekmeği ) hariç başka ekmek yemem. Kaşındım ve dersimi aldım.

Double tap if you like her transformation💕😍 Read description👇👇👇 - This is what 2.5 years of progress looks like for me. It has not been smooth or easy. It has been filled with literal blood sweat and tears. -🙂 There have been many ups and many downs. I have learned oh so much about myself and my body and what works and what doesn’t. I know that health and fitness do not always go together in the fitness industry and I have finally learned how to have both. -✔️ If you want help achieving your health and fitness goals let me know in the comments below. - 📸 @hanalimusic - #momof2 #momoftwo #fitmom #fitmoms #weightlossforher #getsweaty #sweattherapy #teamlosing #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #fitsperation #fitnesslovers #girlwholifts #healthyfit #wlssupport #weightlossbeforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #weightlosshelp #weightlossresults #girlwholift #weightlossinspiration #fitjourney #weightlossstory #fitnessforlife #weightlossdiary #fitspo #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #bodytransformation #weightlosstransformation

I haven’t posted many pictures of myself (other than my face) because I’m going through some body dysmorphia right now. it’s crazy to me how that happens. I’ve made so much progress in taking better care of my body, I know I’ve changed a lot. yet when I look in the mirror I see the me who was almost 300 lbs. if you’re going through this too, it sucks. but lots of people are dealing with it as well. my approach has been to focus less on appearance, hide the scale and find the foods and activities that make my body FEEL good. it’s so hard to let go of the quantifiable, visible “results” but I know it’s the best thing for my mental health 🖤 . . . #intuitiveeating #intermittentfasting #intuitiveeatingjourney #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsglife #wls #wlscommunity #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorder #edrecovery #bingeeating #bingeeatingrecovery #bedrecovery #edwarrior #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #wlslife #healthovereverything #healthjourney #mentalhealth #healthateverysize #bodydysmorphia

From being tired, sweaty and miserable from walking through a museum to running and playing tag with this wiggly mess of a pup. *notice the death grip on Lil Becky

Ill tell ya posting to Instagram is addicting. Im not much of a story person Id rather post. In this post I did not edit out my picture today, you can see the bump on my nose from my old CPAP mask cutting into my skin. Its scabbed over like five times.. Now my mask just covers my 👄 and has a piece that attaches to my nose but doesnt go over my nose or my forehead. Im very thankful, at first I couldnt sleep with the 😷 now I cannot sleep without it, its like a pacifier. So Im going to share my stats with you. My starting weight at the first seminar for the gastric sleeve was 278lbs and now six days out from surgery Im 234lbs my goal weight is 135lbs. So Ive got 100lbs to go. Im not setting myself up for time restraints on what you would call goals. I dont have any goals other than for my body to shrink. And it is. Im so thankful for my tiny tummy its so werid not being hungry😣🍕. I wonder if itll always be like this? Anyone wanna shed some light 💡on this? #baratricsupport #baratricbabe #baratricsurgery #baratricsleeve #wlsupport #wlscommunity #tattooedlife #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation

Today is the 1 year anniversary of having the #verticalsleevegastrectomy y’all! I’m officially down 100lbs! 🤭 and I have a shit ton of loose skin. But I’m loving every moment of this journey 🥰 #fallinginlovewithmyself #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsglady #vsglife #vsgpostop #vsgchangedmylife #wls #wlsfam #wlscommunity #wlscrew #wlsinstafam #wlsfamily #verticalsleeve #vsgjourney #bariactric #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #sleevegastrecomy

I did it. I hit my last goal for 2018 — to get out of the 280’s!!! From 360 pounds to 278 pounds as of this morning. I didn’t know what to do when I saw that number so I stepped off and back on at least 5 times just to make sure I was reading it correctly. I’m really at a loss for words so I’m going to just list some changes I’ve had happen since the beginning of the year: 1. I can shop in the “normal” sections at stores for bras and tops. 2. I can pick up any necklace and know it’s going to fit. 18” chains used to be too small. 3. Can’t even tell you when my last panic attack was. They used to be weekly. 4. Dating feels like an option now. 5. I’m able to work through my spells of anxiety without medication. 6. I’m able to say no to food I shouldn’t have. 7. I was told “you’re always smiling when I see you” last week. Depression used to consume me. 8. I don’t panic when I have to walk long distances and I don’t struggle to keep up with people. 9. I have collarbones and more than one knuckle on my hands. 10. I finally believe in myself and can see I am capable of anything I set my mind to. 11. No more medications. From 5-6 daily medications to ZERO. I no longer feel like I could die any minute from a heart attack. And 12. I’ve learned that the key to successful weight loss is looking at the big picture and not the day to day/weekly/monthly weigh-ins. Those no loss months were hard but had I given up, this post and all those victories wouldn’t exist. 💛💛💛 Also want to give a shout to the ladies in my fasting group! Y’all are lovely and strong and I’m glad you joined me during this 48 hour fast! We’re almost done!!! (If you want to join my next fasting group message, watch my stories!) My last fast of the year will be starting tomorrow night and ending Wednesday night. 💛💛💛 Now, I need to sit down and figure out what my goals for 2019 will be! 🙀 #sidebysidesunday

//trying to stay accountable and take my vitamins every single day! This week is probably the best week I’ve had since i started this journey. Hoping for an empty box next week!

***fitspo and credit to @maxandlizacro ******* Why VSG? Why surgery? Can’t you just diet and exercise? Well let me tell you. I’ve tried everything. From personal training to yoga to keto and back and in different combinations, and my body will not let go of the weight. It piles on. Since college, it’s been 10-15 pounds a year. And I’ve just dealt with it as best I can with different methods while focusing on my education and career. I was diagnosed with PCOS, depression, and anxiety. My body is in fight in flight mode constantly, hoarding fat and energy. We got engaged in july, and are getting married in December of 2019. My fiancé loves my body just the way it is and supports me no matter what. But trying on wedding dresses and thinking about children and how I would carry a baby in an already unhealthy body terrified me. I want to nourish and feed it and strengthen it into a healthy wife and mom. I’ve always adored acro yoga. My fiancé played football in college and is really strong and athletic. He could totally do this physically, but I couldn’t. I weigh more than he does, and he’s 6’3” and he’s not considered “lean” So my NSVs (so far) for 2019: 1) Try on wedding dresses with confidence, and buy a dress I adore and not just because it fits 2) try acroyoga with Jake 3) tbd! #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #vsgsupport #vsginstacrew #wls #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlscommunity #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgfam #vsgbabe #lifeafterwls #weightlossjourney #fattofit #losingweight #gettingfit #wlsinstacrew #bariatric #weightlossmotivation
