OMG!!! Can you believe today is 7months post op from my VSG from @melbourne_bariatrics with Dr. Geoff Draper!! Even though I’m sick with the cold and flu right now. I wish I could jump up with Joy!!! I’m so proud of myself and I’m still determined to keep reaching for my goals 💪🏽💪🏽 #7monthspostop #vsg

Today I had to take a mental break from my desk and so I went for a walk around our building. I was in a very angry place and needed to clear my head. I walked by a glass door and caught my reflection.

No matter how bad things can get, they eventually have to get better.
My weight. Our infertility. My job. Things have been piling up for so long and I often forget to be grateful when things start to go my way. I have to put the work in, but the reward is worth it. Almost 80 pounds down and I couldn’t be happier with that. I just need to remember to breathe and just get things done as I can. It eventually will fall into place.

A little late night #transformationtuesday surgery edition. Sometimes I forget how far I’ve come but it’s nice to see the changes. I’ve been really down about my journey lately but this helped but into perspective I am not the same person I was 3 1/2 years ago. I am changed and so thankful for my journey, flaws and all. The left is the morning of my #vsgsurgery 3 1/2 years ago compared to the right was from my #kneearthroscopysurgery from Friday. #vsg #wls #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #vsglife #wlslife #transformation #lifeaftervsg #lifeafterwls #changes #weightlossjourney2016 #nevergiveup #vsginstacrew #wlsinstacrew #vsginspiration #wlsinspiration #remindertomyself

What has 2 thumbs and is down 100 lbs from her highest weight ever....this girl!!! I’ve been here once before but then I got all knocked up and down the rabbit hole of weight gain I went.
As of this morning I am 1 pound away from my all time lowest adult weight when I got pregnant with my youngest...who turns 4 tomorrow coincidentally. #100lbsdown #thisismyface #vsg #vsginstacrew #baristababes #fuckyes

Holy Depth 😱🙏🏼😆
Ever since I started implementing hip mobility into my weekly routine, I’ve been noticing less tightness and as a result my squats have gotten deeper than before.

Especially today, after taking a 2 week break from squats, I’m pretty surprised of how low I got while keeping a neutral spine.
Stability is a little off and that last rep was definitely a grinder but pretty happy with what I got coming back
☺️
Trainer tip:
• Once you lift the bar, take a second to find your balance.
❌I see a lot of people lift, and then rush back a thousand steps which can throw you off plus waste unnecessary energy.
✅Get under the bar. Big breath in the belly. Lift the weight by extending the knee and hip at the same time. Take 2-4 steps to find your stance. Find your balance again, then start.

If you’re worried about getting too tired from holding the bar, you might wanna reconsider how much weight you’re lifting 🤷🏼‍♀️ Because if the goal is to build muscle and strength, you’re gonna have to get used to holding some heavy ass weight WITH proper form💪🏼
Super happy to get back on my regular routine!
I know I mainly post my squats and deadlifts but that’s because they’re pretty complex movements and they require a lot of technical cues.
Other than those what other exercises would y’all like to see? .

From zero sun pasty white last May to the most tannest I've ever been naturally - lighting sucks, I know, but scroll thru recent posts to see the tan ive got from practically living in the outdoors all summer long. But goodbye heavy double-chin, huge arms, big boobs that hurt soo much to support, hella viceral stomach fat, thicky-thick legs & Fred Flinstone Yabba-Dabba-Doo Feet! I still have a Gut Butt (Albeit, a smaller version) - But Praise the Lawwwd, Praise the Sleeve & Praise that High-Waist High Compression Legging! 🙌
(My FOB shot/foot tattoo are on my right side, but I flipped the left photo so both pics face the same direction)

Shout out to all my people!!! I have never felt more myself and save until I started this page and this journey. I love all y’all. #vsginstacrew #bariatricbabe #sleevinainteasy #livemore

Size 26 pants from June, tried on a Size 24 tonight in Old Navy (my face lol), and squeezed into a size 20 😂🤸🏿‍♀️
It’s been about 8 or 9 years since I’ve been in a size 20. .
