  • Today was an eventful day! First time in days I had to set an alarm and I pactually ended up running late. Rushing to shower and get dressed post-op is painful. I took my first shower today and it was a little hard because reaching is still difficult. It’s really hard to put socks and boots on but I managed lol. When I’m sitting still or laying down I’m fine and don’t feel any pain. It’s when I get out of a chair, twist in bed or cough that I feel it in my stomach. It’s like a burning, aching, tugging, tearing, I can’t really explain it kind of pain. But it’s tolerable and it only lasts a couple seconds. I went out to group therapy today and then visited 2 places I work at to see my coworkers and show off my awesome new belly scars 🙄😂. Driving in the city is a little painful cause when you hit a bump or pothole you can definitely feel it in your stomach! **Confession** I’m allowed ricotta cheese and soup on this stage so earlier I made a tiny amount of ricotta cheese and some strained marinara sauce (basically tomato soup right? lol). I would have been fine except I put a couple strands of shredded mozzarella cheese thinking it’d melt and it’s just a different type of cheese. Big nope! My sleeve did not like that at all! It felt like I swallowed a huge piece of something and it was a crampy feeling in my stomach. So from now on NO rushing things! I’ll stick to my protein shakes, broths, yogurts and puddings! #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgjournal #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsjournal #wlssupport #wlsfamily #vsgpostop #vsgeats

  • Did a little bit of meal prepping 👩🏻‍🍳 except I didn’t cook it lol. My Nana made a big pot of chicken escarole soup! I strained out 8oz for me to enjoy over the course of a half hour. Afterward I was thinking of the left over parts I can’t eat right now and thought I’ll portion it out for next week! If all goes according to plan next Thursday I’ll be moved to Stage 4 of soft, moist proteins. In my containers I have a couple 8oz broths for the rest of the week and in the tiny blue lidded ones I have 1.5oz chicken and .5oz of carrots with some broth. Meal prepping for the win 👌🏻 (even though this is the easiest meal prep ever haha) #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #bariatricsurgery #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlssupport #wlsfamily #vsgpostop #vsgeats #vsgmealprep

  • Well, I've been pretty silent lately for two reasons 1. This schedule. All of my classes this semester are movement based and I am wiped out, going 10 to 10 a lot of days between class, rehearsals, and health appointments I'm averaging 15,000 to 20,000 "steps" a day 💪😳😬🙃 2. I feel like every thing I have to post is boring because I'm in the maintenance phase of my weight loss journey. I'm still learning to balance food and water (especially now that im moving so much, calorie goals are around 1600-1700 for me daily 😳) but don't have the time to post about my meals all the time, because I hardly have enough time to prepare proper meals and eat them let alone post about it. So bear with me y'all while I figure out this phase of my life. I do plan on keeping my Instagram and want to share with everyone as much as possible because I know I have some amazing followers and supporters, but right now insta is definitely on the back burner while I try to balance self care, life, and classes. #wlssupport #wlsjourney #vsg #vsgsupport #weightlossjourney #backtoschool #weightlosssupport #vsgjourney

  • *CONFESSION: Yesterday I binged. I’ve been in a funk the last couple days & I let my emotions win. It isn’t the 1st time & probably won’t be the last. But what I won’t do is stay feeling guilty about it for days or beat myself up bc I’m not perfect all the time. Today I just got right back on my grind & kept moving forward. I have to remind myself that I didn’t get to where I am today by not making mistakes. Success is only defined by how well we bounce back from our mistakes! And I think as long as I have more good days than bad, I’m doing ok. #progressnotperfection #workinprogress

  • A 4oz meal that I prepared vs. what I actually ate. - - - Some days I would be able to eat more than this and some days I’m only able to take a couple small bites and feel full. I’ve been weighing my food to make sure I’m only putting the recommended amount on my plate. Most of the time I’m not able to finish it and that’s okay! I’m learning to listen to my body and stop when it says stop. - - - I’m down 28lbs and many more inches and feeling great! I can’t wait to be able to start working out! Hurry up Week 6!

  • Wow I cannot believe it’s been a month already! I took one month progress photos and am so excited to see a little bit of a difference! I’m down 21.8 # since the day of surgery and I feel fantastic! Besides the whole allergic reaction that made me want to rip off my skin and die it’s actually been surprisingly smooth. I followed my pre-op diet and post-op diet to a T. I never cheated or moved ahead before I was approved to do so. Anytime I wanted to do something different I called and spoke to my doctor and nutritionist first. I think that has really helped. It wasn’t always easy to stick to the post op diet, but I kept reminding myself this isn’t forever. It’s not a crazy fad diet I’m doing. It’s a healing from major surgery diet and I need to give my body the best shot possible at success. But believe me the mental cravings were sometimes intense! This week I started working out and that gave me an INSANE boost of energy! The first day I worked out my husband game home and I was bouncing off the walls. Seriously. Then I kinda twisted my ankle and spent the night with it on ice. I told my husband I didn’t know what happened and he goes “maybe it’s when you were running around like a maniac”. Fair point. HAHA! I’m so glad working out is making me feel so good. It’s keeping me motivated to do it every day. Today I move into a full diet. I’m going to take it slow. My post op instructions says not to introduce more than 1 new food at a meal so that if it doesn’t agree with you you’ll know exactly what it was. I plan to try my best to stick to that. So far this is the best decision I’ve ever made for myself! . . . . . #vsg #vsgjourney #myvsgjourney #wls #weightlosssurgery #weightloss #vsglife #weightlossjourney #vsgatx #verticalsleeve #vsgfamily #wlssupport #wlsfamily #bariatricsurgery #bariatric #bariatricsleeve #wlsstrong #vsgcommunity #weightlosssurgery #wlscommunity #vsglife #gastricsleevesurgery #wlsjourney #wlssurgery #bariatricpostop #vsgpostop #postop #bariatricdiet #onemonthpostop #onemonthpostopvsg

  • About to enjoy my first meal (19hrs fasted, still can’t get to that 16 but I’m trying). Like most of the meals I make, this is a super easy dish, but the recipe is attached in the photos if anyone is interested (trying to get better at posting them because I always get asked but most of the stuff is make up as I go lol). Oh and that little bitty cup of orange stuff is 2 ounces of a sweet potato with half a tsp butter, a sprinkle of cinnamon, half a tsp of erythritol (gotta get some more swerve but the erythritol works just fine), and a tiny dollop of sour cream. If you try it, let me know!
