I didn’t pack enough food to take to work today, so I checked the vending machine & they had these in there. It didn’t taste horrible and I wound up using it as a meal replacement. It kept me full for a few hours. Can’t beat that for 30g of protein. I’m going to check out the other flavors and see how I feel about them ☺️ #premierprotein #premierproteinbar #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgfood #vsgsupport #vsgtransformation #vsgmeals #vsgfamily #vsgsisters #vsgeats #vsglife #vsgpostop #vsgpostopdiet #7weekspostop #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #baritastic #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #vsg #wls #weightloss #wlscommunity #vsgjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsgcommunity

Another meal prep post, but I am finding meal prep so imperative in keeping me on track. I was cleared for a “regular diet” on 04/18, meaning I can start to introduce some harder to digest foods to see what I can tolerate. Being what I consider a “foodie” makes it easier for me to concoct new recipes and try new things, but having quick, easy to transport food that tastes good is also super important. I figured sharing meals could provide inspiration for someone who may not know where to start or where to go after being stuck eating the same things over and over ☺️ #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgfood #vsgsupport #vsgtransformation #vsgmeals #vsgfamily #vsgsisters #vsgeats #vsglife #vsgpostop #vsgpostopdiet #7weekspostop #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #baritastic #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #vsg #wls #weightloss #wlscommunity #vsgjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsgcommunity

F2F Friday, weighin day and 5 months down from surgery. Down to 196.9 today. Lost 2.2 lbs this week. 72.1 overall and 8.8 from my 4 month weighin. Slowed down from my previous months so need to step it up!! #bariactricliving #healthierme #wlsgoals #gastricbypass #wls #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #baritastic #bariatric #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rny #rnyjourney #weightlossjourney #rnycrew #facetoface #facetofacefriday #weightlosstransformation #weeklyweighin #monthlyweighin #droppinweight

What apps do you use? Baritastic has been my absolute fave thus far. It keeps track of your BMI and weight. Allows you to log your food (scanner or manual), log your fluid intake, protein. Also, inches and has cool recipes! #baritastic #baritasticapp : : : : #vsg #weightloss #journey #bariatric #sleeved #healthandwellness #wls #vsgfacts #vsgtransformation #fattofit #secondchance #newme #motivation #beforeandafter #confidence #weightloss #goals #healthgoals #vsgcommunity #vsgtruth #love #sleeved #meme #sleevedlife #vsgjourney #weightlosssurgery #gastricsleevecommunity

l threw these quick & easy breakfasts together last night. Very #vsg friendly! Roasted Red Peppers, Portabella Mushroom Caps, Egg Whites & Chicken Sausages I found that are only 70 calories/link and 12g of protein! * The last photo is the recipe I created on the #baritastic app if you want to try it. * 120 calories/serving - 18g of protein - 3g of carbs #bariatricsurgery #bariatricsleeve #baritastic #macros #nutrition #vsg #wls #weightloss #wlscommunity #vsgjourney #bariatricsurgery #vsgcommunity #wlsjourney #weightlossjourney #fitness #vsginstacrew #gastricsleeve #vsgsupport #verticalsleevegastrectomy #workout #sleevesurgery #weightlosssurgery #healthyfood #sleeved #bariatricsleeve #wlssupport #weightlosstransformation #bodypositive #vsglife #busymom

I have gone from barely fitting into a size 24 to using a belt with my size 12 pants! My shirt size has gone from a xxl to a m! I recently donated three very large trash bags of clothes because I will NEVER need them again. But instead of filling my closet with new clothes I make occasional trips to local second- hand stores. Why spend money on clothes that won’t fit in a few weeks?!?!? I bought the pants shown here three weeks ago (Ralph Lauren found at Goodwill). 😁 👌🏻 💯 👍🏼 🙌🏻 #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsg #vsglife #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #vsginstagram #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsstrong #wlsfamily #wlsgoals #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #gastricsleevejourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #bodypositive #bodypositivebabe #baritastic #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleevesurgery #verticalgastricsleeve #verticalsleevecommunity

Pretty proud of myself! I was NOT on top of my diet Friday at all! But I still hit a huge milestone! January I was 100 pounds down from my highest weight. Today I am 100 pounds down from my surgery day weight! Still have about 40 more to go, which will probably be the hardest to lose now that I am in the final stretch. 😁 👌🏻 💯 👍🏼 🙌🏻 #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsg #vsglife #vsginstafam #vsginstacrew #vsginstagram #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsstrong #wlsfamily #wlsgoals #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #gastricsleevejourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #bodypositive #bodypositivebabe #baritastic #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #verticalsleevesurgery #verticalgastricsleeve #verticalsleevecommunity

We’re at the point that I’m not believing scales when I see my weight. I haven’t been in the 260s in... a long time! 68 sticks of dynamite OR my niece Clara! 😂 27 days until surgery 🤯‼️ #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #bariatric #baritastic #weightloss #learntoloveyourself #healthyandhappy #fattofit #goalsetting #motivatedmindset #healthynotskinny #healthynothungry #progressnotperfection #progresspics #weightlosstransformation #beforeandafter #mentalweightloss #mentalhealthisimportant #foodaddictionrecovery

Dietician appointment 5/6 was today. Yes, I was once again told to reconsider surgery because I'm doing so well, but this time the schpele lasted only a few minutes. The remainder of the time was for talking about the full liquid diet. WE SUBMIT TO INSURANCE NEXT MONTH!

Transformation Tuesday. Im not even at my heighest weight on the left but the difference is amazing. The left pic is from January and I was about 237. As of last weigh in on Friday I was 201.6 so about a difference of 35lbs in about 3 months is so crazy. I think its funny to go and look after you started losing weight bc when I took the January pic, I was like wow I look amazing! Now to look at it, I was still heavy!! So happy with my progress and cant wait for Fridays weigh in to see if I have made it to onderland!!!!! #bariactricliving #healthierme #wlsgoals #gastricbypass #wls #wlstransformation #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #baritastic #bariatric #rnygastricbypasssurgery #rny #rnyjourney #weightlossjourney #rnycrew #transformationtuesday #weightlosstransformation

I’ve been feeling crappy about myself this week. I don’t plan on official progress pictures until next week, but doing this definitely reminded me that I’m not where I was in February, and this is only the beginning. My surgery is in 31 days and I’m going to make the most of this last month pre-op‼️ #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #bariatric #baritastic #weightloss #learntoloveyourself #healthyandhappy #fattofit #goalsetting #motivatedmindset #progressnotperfection #progresspics #weightlosstransformation #beforeandafter #mentalweightloss #nsv #nonscalevictory #facetoface #april #sundayvibes

I’m feeling pretty lazy lately. I’m not eating terribly but I’ve been giving in to ordering lunches with coworkers. But then I feel guilty for not eating as strictly as I should. I’ve mentioned how hard the mental side of weight loss is for me. Today is a struggle but I will keep going. I have 2 weeks until my pre-op diet begins and I don’t want to give up. Eating healthy is a prescription, you have to follow the instructions for it to work. #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #bariatric #baritastic #weightloss #learntoloveyourself #healthyandhappy #fattofit #goalsetting #motivatedmindset #healthynotskinny #healthynothungry #progressnotperfection #progresspics #weightlosstransformation #beforeandafter #mentalweightloss

I started this journey weighing over 275lbs with a BMI of 43, putting me in the morbidly obese category 😕. This morning I weighed in at 208lbs, putting me comfortably in the obese category, which honestly feels amazing 😃!! The last time I weighed this little was almost a decade ago! Loving my tool and the new freedom I feel in my body! 🎉🥳🥰 #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #wls #wlscommunity #wlssupport #verticalsleevegastrectomy #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabes #weighinday #weightloss #weightlossjourney #baritasticapp #baritastic #transformationtuesday #fattofit

Made some low carb chips from #josephslavashbread! They are so good, I typically only use 1/4 of a sheet versus a 1/2 for my serving. You get about 6-8 chips depending on how you cut them. Just some cooking spray on both sides a little salt for taste, cook in air fryer on 400 for 1-2 minutes (watch close, they cook fast) and done. You could also cut them in squares and use as crackers! #duodenalswitch #theswitch #mydsjourney #wlscommunity #thankyoulord #duodenalswitchsurgery #baritastic #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunityds #losingit #shedthepounds #usingmywlstool #joinedthelosersbench #losersbench #wlsrecipes #wlsideas #lowcarbchips #giveematry

I started my 2 week pre-op diet for surgery today. I've been given a list of foods I can eat on and about how much of them. So far, so good. I'm also logging food in the baritastic app. Honestly, I look at this and it looks like it's too much for what I should be eating but maybe that's my brain preparing for after surgery? Either way, this is pretty easy for now and I know it'll be harder. I have my teaching/testing day tomorrow and I'm nervous and equally excited. #wls #vsg #preopdiet #14days #baritastic #verticalsleevegastrectomy at Brandenburg, Kentucky

Omg I just checked my BMI on #baritastic and found out I’m only severely obese and not morbidly obese!! 💪🏻👏🏻 I did the math and my starting BMI was 49.9!! Holy shit!! Down 11 BMI points (is it ever measured in points?) in 7 months!! Setting a goal to get to Obese (216 pounds) by the time I graduate in May. 🤞🏻👊🏻 . . . . . #vsginstacrew #vsginstagram #wlstransformation #wlsinstafamily #wlsinstafam #wlsjourney #vsgjourney #vsgjournal #vsgjourneygastricsleeve #vsggoals #wlsgoals #weightlosstransformation #weightlossgoals #bariatricvegetarian #vsgvegetarian #vsgliving #wlsbeforeandafter

Here's where I'm at in my journey. I have all of my requirements for surgery met and have just two more dietician visits before I can submit to insurance. My last visit will be in May, so I am anticipating having VSG sometime in June, if I am approved. My dietician tries to talk me out of surgery each time she sees me. She sees my 23 pound loss as proof that I can lose the remaining 81 pounds of excess weight on my own. But in all of my life I have NEVER been able to get there. Having others invalidate my decision to pursue surgery makes me question myself on a daily basis. Nowhere else except in the weight loss surgery community is 200 pounds considered small. I realize to some that that number is a goal weight, but I refuse to think that just because I am there it means I have to stop wanting surgery. I have a slew of reasons for continuing to go through with this, and not a single one has to do with vanity or because I'm idealizing a certain number. I want to put as much distance between myself and the fate that others in my family have faced. Having an additional tool like vsg is only going to help me never ever go back to old habits, and I need that desperately. All this being said, the only way I would stop pursuing this surgery would be if insurance continued to deny it. Until then, I am going to keep on keeping on.
