Okay just having some fun with my food about now. Hoping to brighten your day! Nothing else going on but happy faces with my fruits and pecans. ______________________________________
But you know I have to say it, always have a protein with yo snack. #proteinsnack#protein#healthysnack#bariatricsleeve
No lifts, no gifts. 🎅🏻💪🏻
I’ve lost all my muscle in my arms.... soooo 😂 but next week I’ll start lifting. I got my entire week filled out. I’m a weirdo and like to start on Monday’s. But I made my ass to the gym. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
@jmayden let me sleep in for a little bit, which I thought was super nice. (I went back to bed after getting Karson a drink, this morning!) now, I’m trying to wake up and drink my coffee. I woke up with Donald trump toupee lookin hair. 😂 I’m thinking of dying it, today. I’m about to get the kids dressed, lunches packed. We’re gonna go to the gym, I’m gonna take kar to school and go get some of these jalapeño pupusas @theproteinbabe had on her story the other day. They look so freaking good. I’ve been dreaming about them. 😳🙄🙈 then, see if there’s any other sprouts goodies, maybe some fruit. Then, house cleaning time, Gaga! Happy Thursday, everyone have a fantastic day. ❤️
Honestly I didn't want to even post today. Thursdays are my weigh in days and when I stepped on the scale it said 290. I gained two pounds this week. I haven't been eating bad, i've been trying to get all of my water and protien in that I can. I have been working out a lot this week so i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong. I don't know if this is just water weight or muscle but I was heart broken when I saw what I weighed. It's dicouraging when you're doing all you can and the scale moves up not down. I'm blocking my face because your girl had a full blown panic attack this morning and now my face is all puffy and red. I just wanted to be honest in my journey and i'm really upset today. I didn't think this would happen this early in my journey. It makes me not want to eat anything at all and I know thats not healthy its just what i'm feeling. Anyone else in the wls community experienced this? Any advice? I'm going to keep moving and keep eating healthy, try to drink more water and hopefully the scale will start moving down again.
Time to get my day started!!! Protein is my number one source I go to.
Atkins Vanilla Protein with an Espresso shot of Hazelnut Coffee ☕️, my @oikosprotein Triple Zero Chocolate 🍫 flavored yogurt and my daily supplements! Let’s not forget my @doterra Lemon 🍋 oil I use in my water 💦 daily!! #VSGLife#BariatricBabe#MealPrep#MakingGoodChoices#BariatricSleeve#WLS
Here’s a candid picture of me about to stuff my face on the beach in Croatia. 😆
It was taken almost ten years ago, the last time I flew back home. I can’t wait to go back one day and do all of the things I couldn’t or didn’t want to when I was heavier. Of course, I still plan on stuffing my face with some delicious European food, just in moderation 😋
Swipe for a more recent candid. ✌🏼
¿Por qué se siente más frío después de una cirugía bariátrica.. Sólo quienes se han realizado una cirugía bariátrica para bajar de peso o tratar enfermedades como la diabetes o la hipertensión pueden saber que cuando dicen que tienen más frío de lo común, es porque realmente es así.
Porque no estamos hablando de la menor temperatura que se siente en invierno u otoño, sino de un frío generalizado en el cuerpo durante cualquier época del año y que hace perder cualquier protocolo.
Pese a que los especialistas indican que esta menor tolerancia al frío es una consecuencia transitoria, lo cierto es que perdura por mucho tiempo, y para algunos, no se vuelve a recuperar nunca la temperatura corporal que se tenía hasta antes de la operación.
Pero por qué ocurre? Sucede porque al bajar de peso, se pierde una gran cantidad de grasa, que es la capa térmica que tenemos para soportar el frío o el calor. El cirujano digestivo de la Clínica Vespucio, Marco Rioseco, explica que efectivamente es muy común que los pacientes sometidos a una cirugía bariátrica sienten mucho más frío que antes. “Se debe a que hay una ingesta mínima de calorías por la alimentación y a disminución progresiva de la grasa. Esto afecta tanto a hombres como mujeres y no tiene relación con el peso en exceso, ni con la cantidad bajada. Es una sensación bastante molesta para algunos pacientes y lamentablemente no hay un tratamiento específico” .
Day ☀ 3 of surgery and I'm fine as long as they give me that pain medication.. I got up early did my hair and makeup, changed my headband cause it makes me feel pretty. Hell this surgery is already making me feel pretty and according to the bed scale I've lost five pounds since I got in this bed two days ago. I am hungry but I swear I just took some liquid Tylenol and o felt it go all the way down and now I can just feel it sitting in my stomach. Yuck!
But the staff here st Lovelace has been expectional and I've meet two people with my same surgeon on the same day, and were insa friends now. I'm always down for new friends 👭👬👫. On the last note💌 if your thinking about doing this surgery... Do it! Don't think of it as the easy way out cause it's not, it's just a tool you have to do the work in. You can't eat crappy and you can't have carbonated drinks and those that do after surgery are ignorant because it will stretch out your tummy again. So if your obsessed with soda, sparkling water or beer 🍺 if think twice about this surgery. Ok I'm done with my rant, I just want people to know that this isn't an easy road.
@aldiusa did their almond nog right!!!! Vegan, lactose free, dairy free. I tried the califia farms one and it was sooo spicy and not like eggnog at all to me. This one is so close to the taste of eggnog. I love it. 😍🤤 9 carbs in 1/2 a cup.
