Mommies!!!! Don’t believe the hype...we don’t all just SNAPBACK after babies! Some of us have to actually work REALLY hard to get that baby weight off. Every woman’s body and their journey to get healthy is different. Don’t compare your mom body with anyone else’s, especially a celebrity who has had extensive surgeries you don’t know about, crazy diet regimens, chefs to prepare their meals or multiple nannies to care for their kids while they work on them. You’re doing this will little to no help, so just do the work that’s necessary to get you where you want to be! Be kind to yourself, but make no excuses its time to work on YOU! #BeeHerNow#queendalezgetsfitandfine#2yearsApart#TwinMom#7monthsPostSkinRemoval
Angles and lighting matter. 😂 But it's always fun to see the difference -175 lbs has made on my face.
Also NGL, I had to photoshop the photo on the right. There were some bats in the cave that needed to be taken care of. 🦇
Anyways I wanted to ask a question: if you are currently overweight or obese, do you have darker skin in your creases and folds? I used to have darker skin on my neck, armpits, and etc. (When I was younger, I thought it was dirt. 🤷🏻♀️) Although I had the issue the majority of my life, it was only addressed once by my previous OBGYN after the birth of my daughter. She mentioned it could be an underlying symptom of PCOS. Although I didn't follow up with my DR, I found out that the darkened skin could also be a sign of Type 2 Diabetes. While I was never formally diagnosed with either, the issue with dark skin completely disappeared with my weight loss.
I guess the point I'm making is be aware of your body. It might be subtle or it might be pronounced, but your body does have its ways of telling you that something is wrong. I went the majority of my life with this issue, never thinking it could be a sign of something more serious aside from just excess fat. So if something doesn't seem right, seek advice from a professional. Something as simple as losing weight and making a dietary lifestyle change can improve the issue, BUT it's always best to ask a doctor. Your health is important, so be proactive!
The biggest I’ve ever been in my life vs the smallest. I still wake up some days in awe. I’ve wanted this for so long.
What does me losing 203 pounds prove?
1. If I can do it, so can you
2. Stay consistent and results will happen
3. Find what works for you
4. Never Give up
From 387 pounds to 184. 🙏🏽🙌🏽 #weightlosstransformation#extremeweightloss#wls#vsg#transformation
So grateful for my wonderful husband who has been a trooper for the last 12 hours.
Being in the hospital was not how we planned our snow day together, but I'm glad he is here and he is taking good care of me. ❤
This definitely is something I’ve felt... sometimes constantly! It is a STRUGGLE to know and feel that in a way it’s mandatory to give into the changes I’ve chosen for myself. The hardest part is not giving into the negative feelings when those around aren’t in the same “struggle.” But I know where it’s taking me and I’m trusting it 💯!
Like I said I would weigh myself this morning & stay off the scale until next Sunday. So wtbs 278lbs. & my biggest concern is gettng in the dang on gym. I do not want all that extra skin. I'm drinking as much water as my stomach will allow, I need to be toning while losing. Any who Day4 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 #vsg#liquiddiet#postop#vsgcommunity#gastricsleeve#weightlossjourney#day4
Melihat lebih jauh prilaku anak anak desa yang dipandang sebelah mata oleh mansyarakat perkotaan. Nyatanya bagi saya pribadi sosok anak desa jauh lebih menyenangkan, kesan kesederhanaan tampak dengan cara mereka berprilaku.
Pelajaran kemanusiaan rasanya menjadi pelajaran berharga yang saya dapat.
Got my Mport done today for January. I was honestly surprised to see a difference and for that weight to pretty much match my scales.
Am slightly disappointed there was no ET neck or Elastic Girl arm this time 😂
Thankyou Fringe festival perth !
2 nights in a row of going out (and staying out past 1am - omg right)
Last night we went to see 'Puppet guy' and 'sinsuality' i absolutely love going out during the fringe festival! #loveperth
No alcohol consumed last night just water but after friday night its nice knowing i can stomach a wine if i want one. Its about making better choices and having a longer and generally better life. Im getting there but looks can be deceiving !
I'm feeling great physically but mentally im struggling i think. I cant quite explain but i feel a bit deflated. did i think my anxiety would disappear along with the weight? I'm not sure. Anyone else getting this?
When one one fat brain @sleeving_bec says to another fat brain ‘I should go for a walk but don’t wanna’ our two fat brains managed to find motivation and got our arses up late to do a walk. 😂 Had to debrief from today’s events - such a good way to finish the day, 5.88kms later. 👍🏻🚶🏼♀️ #MapMyWalk#getupslacker#vsg

This is how my stomach looks after 45kg weight loss and 7 months later. 😅 Not gonna lie its a huge insecurity I can’t imagine letting anyone see it because who would choose that over a normal toned stomach or who wouldn’t think it’s gross in general. But 7 months ago I would have never believed I could have something even close to it. I guess it’s in our nature to always aim higher and we all want to be the best versions of ourselves. I’m trying to accept it and love it but I’m struggling with the second. Well, I’ll have to deal with it anyway.
I definitely want to get my scars and stretch marks laser removed and have my excess skin removed. And a breast augmentation definitely 😅
If you know of any good clinics/plastic surgeons in Europe DM me or comment!
This was Saturday day #5 of #postop I’m feeling good. I made sugar free butterscotch #pudding by @jello I added #protein in with it. The Family Dinner is Stew Turkey & Butternut-squash etc... mine was @campbells#creamofbroccolisoup mixed with #creamofchicken soup. Strained. Low fat. It taste delicious! No lie. I’m going to tell y’all the real deal because if you’re planning on getting this tool to help you- you need to know. 1. Gas is real but not terrible for me. I walk and it releases the gas. I take baby gas relief drops. That works for me. Dye free. 2. Still trying to consume by 64oz of fluids in between meals. 3. My incisions look good. 4. Pain is really only at night but I’m sleeping through the night. Today is Sunday, I woke up early today to get ready for church! One thing is a MUST- Stay hydrated. Sip do not gulp. Take your time. If you feel full don’t force yourself- that’s what my dietician told me. Also- not everyone has to share their story. I choose to share mine. It’s your body and your decision. It’s not easy by no means but for some people like myself it was necessary! Alright! Happy Sunday! @letskeepsmiling7@pastorjamila#vsgpostopweek1#vsg#weightlosstransformation#weightlossjourney#weightloss#sugarfree#sleevedlife#verticalsleevegastrectomy#verticlesleeve

Went out last night to do an escape room followed by retro crazy golf to celebrate my brother-in-law getting engaged to the most lovely girl. I was the driver for the night but still had a great time, also had a cheeky burger during the evening. It was a chicken one an lowers in cals than most on the menu. I was dressed head to toe in superdry...never been able to where anything from there before other than a mans hoodie! Such a great feeling #nsv . Its not friday but wanted to do a face to face. The poc from last night isnt great and there werent many taken as me as i am usually the one annoying everyone by taking pics. My husband was also taking the mini golf waàaay to seriously 😂 #weightlosssurgery#weightlossjourney#weightloss#gastricsleevesurgery#gastricsurgery#gastricsleeve#vsg#vsglife#vsgforlife#bariatricsurgery#facetoface#wls#wlscommunity

I have made it post op 90 days down 75 or so pounds!! I have not been great with sticking to a workout plan but hopefully this week my schedule will improve!! I can’t say it enough VSG surgery has been a total game changer!! If your struggling schedule yourself at least an appointment with a Bariatric surgeon in your area !! .
I was the girl that had no issue in putting on the work in the gym some days a few hours but had no control over diet once so ever!! .
I knew what I needed to eat but cravings and addiction got the best of me!! I had two of the best trainers in the area one I was with for a few years he became just like family and another one for at least a year!! .
I Always made my sessions they made it fun and encouraging!! No one ever said you need surgery as a matter of fact I said eventually I might need surgery this just isn’t working never thought I’d do it but once I knew it was financially covered it was a no brainer!! Today I’m an advocate for Bariatric surgery bc I know mentally my life is not what it could of been had I been at a healthier weight prior!! I don’t think anything out here is for everyone and this is something you have to really want!! The last thing my trainer said to me as we finished our last session together was I don’t know when but I do know you’ll get there!! Here we are a DECADE later!! #vsg#vsgjourney#vsgcommunity#bariatricsleeve#bariatriclife#bariatricsleevejourney#wlscommunity#wls#wlstransformation#wlsjourney#wlsfamily#wlsinstacrew#wlspostop#wlsbeforeandafter

Cleared all Pre-OP Testing...but let’s talk about cost for a second! The amount of money I have spent for these test + surgery having insurance is crazy but I am thankful I am in the last stage of this process 🏥 #wls#fitgirlsguide#houston#gastricsleeve#vsg
