So here's what I hate and here's where I know I struggle to see the weight loss....the lower stomach...not being negative here either trying to be as positive as possible. I think I struggle with this because I feel my lower stomach is still big and I've lost most my weight on my upper body, arms, thighs, butt. I think my head is convinced that my lower stomach will remain this big...even though it's not as big as it was. It's rounded, it hangs and if this makes sense it's not empty...it's still hard and solid and I wonder how long it won't be like that for....I wonder when it will just be loose skin and empty so I can move on with this journey. Does it take extra time for it down there? I've seen so many others who have lost all that weight there and I wonder will it start happening as I head into double digits or will it still be full? Sitting here today realising that this is my one majorly HUGE issue I have with my body and again I'm not being negative at all but these are the questions I ask myself daily!! I guess I have to remind myself that I've carried this weight for a long time and it just don't happen as quick as I want it too but I just need to believe in myself that eventually it will!!! 🙌🏼💪🏼💪🏼 #questioms #vsg #vsgsurgery #vsgsupport #vsghealth #vsgchanges #vsgcommunity #vsghealthyliving #vsgaustralia #vsgpic #sleeve #sleeved #sideshot #real #beingrealandhonest #vsgcurves #curves #fat #lowerfat #lowerstomachfat #loseweight #losingweight #weightlosslife #weightlossjourney #weightlossaustralia

Eating during the holidays can be stressful! You want to be kind to your body yet enjoy the seasonal foods. What strategies do you use during this time period? • • Here are some tips 👉🏻✔️Scan the table ahead of time before serving yourself a plate. Since your stomach size is small be picky about what items you want to put in there. ✔️ Ask yourself before the meal, "How do I want to feel after this meal?" This can help set the tone for the rest of the meal. ✔️ Have a small meal or snack before the festivities to help stabilize your blood sugar so you are not reaching for the nearest thing in sight once you arrive. ✔️ Give yourself permission to enjoy food. If you become too restrictive it may lead to a binge. • • • #vsg #vsgcommunity #wls #bariatriceating #weightloss #motivation #eathealthy #gasticsleeve #transformation #weightlosssupport #gastricsleevesupport #wlsfamily #wlscommunity #bariatricfood #vsgsupport #weightlosssurgerysupport #holidayeating

This pregnancy is horrible and by far the worst! I've been stuck at home for the past 3 almost 4 weeks with constant vomiting and not being able to eat or drink. I was in hospital last Thursday night on a drip then sent home with only anti neasuea tablets that I think do not help what so ever and have been stuck in bed ever since! I had a huge cry to my partner over the weekend and even said I wanted a termination because I just can't deal with this I want it to be over 😭😭😭 He's has to do both his full time job plus everything at home and I feel so horrible for making him do everything. It just really sucks and hope the sickness is over soon. 10 weeks pregnant tomorrow and 30 more weeks to go 🤢😢😟😞 Sorry had to rant. #icantdothis #sosick #sickmum #sorebody #pregnancyafterweightloss #pregnancyaftervsg #firsttrimester #worstpregnancyever #housebound #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsglife #vsgaustralia #vsgsupport #wls #wlslife #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #weightloss #verticalsleevegastrectomy

I was doing a little shopping for my company Christmas party (on the left). I decided to compare it to 2 years ago and 25 lbs lighter (on the right). It’s still a month away and I bought the dress in two sizes! Let’s see what it looks like in a month.

Over a week with my new #AppleWatch and I’m loving it! Reminders to move, drink water, and take my pills all on my wrist! I do love my Fitbit community though, so I’ll be keeping that for awhile. . . . #VSG #VSGCommunity #VSGInstaCrew #VSGSurgery #VSGJourney #VSGSupport #VSGFam #VSGLife #VSGPostOp #VSGBeauty #GastricSleeve #GastricSurgery #SleeveLife #WeightLoss #WLS #WeightLossSurgery #WLSCommunity #WLSJourney #Bariatric #BariatricSurgery #BariatricLife #VSGBeauty1686
