Love is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day, the sacrifices we make for one another and the way we communicate. πŸ’• No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together β˜”οΈπŸ’¦πŸŒˆβ˜€οΈ #nsv #couplesdoitbetter #wlscouple #transformation #weightlossinspiration #weightlossstory #weightlossinspiration #vsgfam #vsgfamily #NSV#gastricsleevesuccess #vsg #foodattitude #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #extremeweightloss #aussiewlsbabes #transformationstory

Real beauty isn’t about symmetry or weight or makeup; it’s about looking life right in the face and seeing all its magnificence reflected in your own πŸ‘ΈπŸ»πŸ’•πŸ˜˜πŸ™Œ

Firstly I want to acknowledge everyone in my support network, Whether its real life, Social Media or We have never had an interaction personally I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.πŸ’•
People have generously donated to my cause to help me get the surgery I so desperately need and desire.
This isn’t a want… it’s a need… this isn’t me being selfish.. this is me taking care of myself. I have managed to collect 1/3 of what I need and I’ve been able to lock in a date with Destination Beauty.
They have been so supportive and really have impressed me with their communication and follow ups. Also a big thanks to @jens_healthjourney and Prame at @destinationbeautysurgery for assisting me, keeping me calm, answering all my questions… I am now one of her clients and she will be by my side as I go through everything. πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’• I will be undergoing the Knife on February 9th 2018 With Dr Angkana Tanvatanagul over in Bangkok.πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’• It will be a long operation with a long recovery not only in Bangkok but when I come home. My Employers have been nothing but supportive and will assist me during this time and its taken a HUGE amount of pressure off me.
So with this confirmed theres a lot of life changes ill be making personally and ill be working with my GP and other teams to get where I need to be.

Its kinda surreal to think that this is actually happening. Im still a bit off goal and im going to save as much as possible to put towards it however I still need as much help as I can get.
Im πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ $5950 away from having everything taken care of aswell as my own contributions ive been making.
I have between now and January to come up with the rest.
The Go fund me is just for the surgery, My flights, insurance etc will be funded by myself.
Im not expecting people to fork out large amounts but small donations are appreciated if you have it. If not a simple share of my original story would be appreciated.
Again to those who have contributed thank you so so so so so very much, I Cannot thank you enough for enabling me to get to this point, I'm excited and nervous!!! 202 days to go!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ Thank you

Wouldn't be a #faceofffriday without a picture of me catching flies after entering food coma territory around 2 and half years ago, sporting my trademark black and white stripes #gopies πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and trying to smile but looking half constipated! Hard to believe there's roughly 100kg between these pics... Last few days have honestly been a blessing,I've really looked back and thought... fuck how lucky am I πŸ€ im so thankful for the people I have in my life ✌🏻 the love I have received over the past week has been unbelievable, thank you from the bottom of my heart. β­οΈπŸ˜ŠπŸ’• happy Friyay to everyone!

Shoutout to all the girls out there trying to love themselves in a world that's constantly telling them not to πŸ’• A reminder that you don't forget... Healthy looks different on every body...my stomach area looks like jerky drying out however I'm medically fit as a fiddle.. my weight is good... bloods are good, I can run, I can breathe.. I'm the best I've ever been physically .. excluding mental health but we are all a bit like that.. let's be kind to ourselves #wednesdaywisdom #happythoughts #mondaymotivation #gastricsleevecrew #chantellevsg #bopoafterwl #bodylove #selflove#transformation #weightlossinspiration #weightlossstory #weightlossinspiration #vsgfam #vsgfamily #NSV#gastricsleevesuccess #vsg #bariatricbabes #foodattitude #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #extremeweightloss #aussiewlsbabes #transformation #excessskin #extremeweightlossstory #gofundme #wlscommunity

Most people see me as this insecure little thing. Those are just the sides of me that I feel necessary to show because no one else seems to be showing them. I've been really looking into self love and being more #bopo with myself. Your self-esteem won’t come from body parts, You need to step away from the mirror every once in a while, and look for another reflection, like the one in the eyes of the people who love you and admire you πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• #mondaymotivation #gastricsleevecrew #chantellevsg #bopoafterwl #bodylove #selflove#transformation #weightlossinspiration #weightlossstory #weightlossinspiration #vsgfam #vsgfamily #NSV#gastricsleevesuccess #vsg #bariatricbabes #foodattitude #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #extremeweightloss #aussiewlsbabes #transformation #excessskin #extremeweightlossstory #gofundme #wlscommunity

Although I've had my head ripped off and handed back to me, nasty messages and status updates indicated at me this week by the online keyboard warriors on earth... human beings still amaze me with the generosity and love they can provide to people they haven't met in real life. I rise above it, I choose now to ignore it and not to react to it. My @gofundme was posted by one of my girlfriends originally without my knowledge and I went along with it after I saw the support I was being offered, I had one opened last year and got some donations which helped go towards consultations and are still banked in my current kitty, I felt bad for people contributing to my failures and problems and thought why should you be asking people for help when you caused the issue? To be frank a lot of people have said they want to help me so It've allowed it to continue, I won't take any notice of negativity or people "abusing" me for asking for help. If you don't want to... it's simple.. scroll on and enjoy the rest of your day.. my post isnt going to cause you any distress... move on and please don't abuse me with your messages of disapproval, I'm not interested,

Plastic surgery in Australia is expensive, very... I was quoted $28 thousand dollars for a lower body lift. With my health fund only covering a very small amount. I wish I had that kind of money lying around but with the economy we live into day and living expenses it's impossible for some low and middle income earners.
To clear things up πŸ’° I am not eligible for Medicare or Medibank to do it for free regardless of what issues I'm having. There is a small rebate I'm entitled to.
πŸ’° due to the extent of work I need doing I prefer to go overseas to avoid costs here in Australia now, I've had a quote for a third of what I've been quoted here. πŸ’° I don't have $28k lying around to do it in Australia
πŸ’° my bank denied me a personal loan as I've had to move house within the last 3 months to support my husbands change in job and also my own change of job in the last 3 months. They told me to wait 12 months and try again. πŸ’° grant is unable to get credit at the moment to assist me moving forward due to his change of job.

If you try anything, if you try to lose weight, or to improve yourself, or to love, or to make the world a better place, you have already achieved something wonderful, before you even begin. Forget failure. If things don't work out the way you want, hold your head up high and be proud. And try again. And again. And again!

Had a bit of a realisation today... lol it's amazing what shit you can find on other phones, improv @orpheen took this video of me a month before surgery, I had sleep apnea, I would fall asleep everywhere, I stopped breathing multiple times because of the amount of weight, fat and skin around my neck, scared.. yes! Proud... yes... unrecognisable... yes!!! I'm so happy that I no longer have sleep apnea, I no longer keep grant up worried I'm going to stop breathing completely during the night, I no longer snore!!! And I can lie down now and only have 1 double chin ;) .

Stolen from @alirav πŸ’• People will screen shot the things you post and say nasty things about you, they will get in their poison little groups and have a laugh at you doing your best in this crazy world... it doesn't matter what anyone says about me or you... I will continue to empower women to put themselves out there I will continue to put myself out there to make the life that I want and deserve. Bitch away because I'm not listening 😘 πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
