Day 79- one cup salad with 1/4 cup cheese, 2oz chicken, 1/4 cup roasted corn, 1/4 black beans. 2tbs homemade guacamole on top with 1 Tbs cilantro dressing. One problem I’m still having is my mind still thinks I can eat this much... after all it’s not that much right? Nope, could only eat about half, but I did eat all of my chicken breast. One day my mind will catch up. #vsg #vsgsurgery #vsgfood #vsgsupport #vsgcommunity #wlsfoods #wls #wlscommunity #wlseats #wlsmeals #weightlossjourney #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #chickensalad #guacamole

You never, ever, ever know where your life is going to take you... This surgery and lifestyle change has taken my life and flipped it on it’s head. I started this journey in September of 2016 and had surgery in May of 2017. I was engaged and thought I was happy and living the life I wanted and needed. But the truth is, I never felt good enough for that man or that life. I relied too much on him for my happiness because I had none within myself. He just wasn’t the one. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I moved from NY to LA in search of me and I found her! She was hiding under a lot of bullshit, but I stripped everything away and fell in love with the woman I am. I got my own apartment. I scored my dream job. I found my happy in the small things. And somehow, this really great and handsome guy snuck in there too. I want for NOTHING. My life is mine and I hold it in the highest regard. I have the best friends, the best family and the best support system. I’m so happy in this moment, I could burst. This is what life is about... Finding out what you’re really made of, gaining independence and realizing you’re ENOUGH. I made this life of mine a reality, and I’m enough. Every other good thing is icing on the cake my friends. 🙌🏻♥️💋 :: :: #VSG #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsgpostop #vsgstrong #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #vsgliving #vsgfamily #vsgcrew #vsgfriends #wls #wlsfam #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsvsg #wlspostop #losersbench #gettinghealthy #gettingfit #weightlossjourney #fitspo #wlssupport #vsgsisters #weightloss

#transformationtuesday Cardigan style! I posted the photo on the left 9/7/17 celebrating a #NSV of being able to button up my cardigan around my body which I could never do before. Today I took this selfie (as I always do) and just now realized the difference! I am so happy my tummy is getting smaller. Its the part I am MOST self conscious about and the part I feel is not budging at all during this journey but this transformation helps me keep things in perspective!

I know to some people, its not a big deal but to me, its a HUGE DEAL! The last time i tried to jump rope, i couldnt even "jump up" once. For the past 3 weeks, my hubby & i have been going to the gym 4 days per week. I feel myself getting stronger. Ive shaved 2 minutes off of my mile & tonight, i jokingly grabbed the jump rope to just see if i could do it & i DID! I was proud of myself. #nsv #jumprope #wls #wlsinstafam #wlsfriends #wlssupport #vsg #bariatricsleeve #bariatricfriends #fitfam #vsgsupport #bariatricsleeve #bariatricfriends #fitfam #vsgsupport #vsginstafam #vsgfriends #vsggirls #exercise #gym #goaldigger #nowifonlythisscalewouldmove

Dinner for the family tonight was 🌮 I just put all of the delicious fillings in a bowl and I’m good to go! I put the bowl next to my phone so you can really see what a serving size look like post-op 6mths. I did finish it but was stuffed!

So, I was tagged by @full.heart.half.body for #mecrushmonday and I picked the most trash picture of myself LOL. I look miserable, right? TWAS. But I finished that damn race with @justadriane84 and @manuvsteel by my side. I didn't give up, even though I couldn't feel my legs or toes. I didn't quit, even though breathing that cold air was like a fire being set in my lungs. My resolve is what I LOVE about myself day in and day out. Despite looking like I'm about to pass out, this picture is the perfect representation of that. . . . . . . . . . . . #vsg #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgsupport #vsginstafam #vsgfamily #wls #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve #vsgpostop #sleeved #bariatricbabes #tinytummytime #weightlossjourney #progress #sleevingbeauties #bariatriccommunity #health #weightloss #instafit #fitfam #fitspo #vsgbabe #blackfitness
