Today’s topic: eating food after 7pm
.
You hear it all the time “Avoid eating before bed because food eaten at that time automatically gets stored as fat”- I did you not, I hear this ALL the time 😅 and it could not be more 🚫 FALSE 🚫 and here is why
.
On a typical night, my last meal is eaten around 9pm. YES- 9pm. Your body does NOT have an internal system where the minute it hits 7pm ur body just goes “OK THATS IT ANYTHING IN AFTER THESE GOES STRAIGHT TO LOWER BELLY FAT”. Your body has no CLUE what time it is. Think about it- if this myth were true, wouldn’t anyone who works the overnight shift be fat since ALL the food they eat would clearly be turned into fat since they’re eating late at night?? It just ISN’T logical 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
Should you be eating calorically sense meal before bed? Probably not since you do not NEED that much energy at rest. It is probably more efficient to feed your body more calorically sense meals during the day while you’re moving and grooving and need the energy 🏃🏻‍♀️ so if you ARE eating after 7pm and ARE gaining weight or pleateuing: PLEASE understand that there is NOT a direct correlation between the two 🙅🏻‍♀️ so instead of not eating after 7pm and hoping you start seeing results- DO your research, determine the proper caloric intake for you to reach your goals, and make adjustments as necessary ☺️
.
Bottom line: As long as you’re eating in a proper caloric deficit, or at mantainence, you will NOT gain weight from eating after 7pm 🙌🏻 I promise you

#throwbackthursday then 2015 to now! What a change, from a size 26-28 to a 16. The weight loss has slowed recently but as soon as I finish kicking cancers arse you know I’m going to be back in that gym and getting rid of the excess weight! #bag #vsgcommunity #vsgsupport #vsgcrew #vsgjourney #verticalsleeve
#30dayspostop LOL! Yea so that's what I did. A lot of the people I follow are across the pond and the majority of you go through this daunting process to get approved for surgery right? For me, knowing without a doubt I wasn't going to get approved on the NHS, only had the option to fund it myself and hop on over to Dubai and the lovely #zulekhahospitalsharjah for my procrdure
.

Nearly a month post op I realised that my UK medical records did not show that I'd done this so I decided to visit my GP and let them know .

Me: Hey Dr, I've just come in for a chat really 
Dr: Oh, oh ok, that's nice, what do you want to discuss
Me: Well I thought I should let you know I have had VSG surgery
Dr: *confused face* 
Me: Sorry, sorry, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy 
Dr: Oh, wow, we should have a record of that
Me: Oh no you won't, I did it abroad in Dubai
Dr: Oh, I see. How are you? *concerned face*
Me: I'm great *grins*, I was never going to get in on the NHS, and I can go privately abroad and get even better quality service 
Dr: Yes a lot of people go outside of the UK as it is so expensive here 
Me: Any chance I can get referred to a dietician for extra help?
Dr: Yes of course, I'll refer you to the "get fit, get well program" which has Drs, dietician and exercise therapists. 
Me: Perfect, thanks .

And that was it. We can't leave our fate to others, we take control and we let them know when the time is right 🙋🏾‍♀️

Since starting this journey, I haven’t had any luck seeing a difference in myself - it didn’t matter if I looked in a mirror, tracked my measurements, took progress pictures, or anything in between. It’s hard to understand why though given that I’ve lost 101.6 freaking pounds!! You’d think it would be noticeable, but nope, it’s a total struggle and something I just can’t grasp. 
Well that all changed today!! Woohoo!! At work yesterday we had a staff appreciation breakfast and there were pictures taken. Those pictures were shared this morning and for the first time, I CAN SEE A DIFFERENCE!! The picture on the left was taken Dec. 2, 2017 and the picture on the right is from yesterday (Aug. 14, 2018). Between the two pictures there is a difference of 82.6lbs. I can’t believe I’ve come this far. This journey has been far from easy, but it’s been sooo worth it! I’m excited to see what the next few months bring and how I continue to progress on this journey.

THROWBACK THURSDAY TO THIS LITTLE BABE ✖ (check my story for a poll) I have been thinking a lot lately about how I got to where I am. When I was about 17 a friend said to me "you're fat but you have always been fat so it's easier for you, I was always skinny and now I have to deal with being fat" I was so offended, but it's true, I had always been fat so it was no different to me. The sad thing is as much as I was a confident kid and teenager I cried myself to sleep countless nights wishing I was 'normal' like my friends, I dealt with things my friends and kids my age wouldn't even have to think about because of their body shape. I think being big in general is hard, it doesn't matter if you have been bigger your whole life or if you gained weight, we all deal with it differently.

After a long hiatus, I’ve returned to regular yoga classes with @dressedtokayl It’s been about a month of two-a-week classes (interspersed with walking/biking days and sometimes open gym/CrossFit days), and already I can tell a difference in how my body feels.
🧘🏻‍♂️
I was so afraid to return to the mat because in the past my back pain had prohibited me from doing any sort of regular exercise. But now, one year post-surgery, my back feels so much better and stronger and more stable. I enjoy yoga so much more now. Even when my balance is wavering during eagle pose, or I wobble in standing splits poses, or can’t twist as far as everyone else, I’m still doing it. And it makes me feel good, flexible, more aware, and strong.
🧘🏻‍♂️

Absolutely drenched in sweat after 8 miles on the Stationary bike tonight...💦🚲 Btw When I'm at home, I can wear my spaghetti straps and loud leggings without fear, but I'd never wear these in public. Fupa, you can go die and go to hell 😑

Find someone who used YOUR surgeon when asking about experiences so you don't have false expectations. Some doctors are more experienced and provide better care. Just facts

My surgery team went out their way to make me smile, make me feel safe and provided around the clock care. I have pictures and videos of my surgery, so I know that my surgery was performed well. I went in with 12 preexisting conditions but had no complications. I would do every surgery by them if I could. They even offered to drive me around and show me Tijuana. Drove to pharmacies to help me get my meds (I got lots of extra pain meds because I live in chronic pain). Absolutely no regrets.

Captured all my meals, snacks, and liquids for the day for those folks who are curious about what an average day 6 months post-bariatric surgery looks like (at least for me). Ended with 798 calories and burned 788 calories swimming at the Y. I’d say it was a good day!

Getting back to my normal gym routine has been tough and my eating habits haven’t been the best since starting my new job. But now working 2 jobs and being a bit more busy than usual is no excuse to slack! Gonna try #IntermittentFasting AGAIN! Gotta make my goal weight of 165lbs ! Glad I didn’t let my fatigue stop me from training w/ @moeknowsmuscles and my other training partna @luckylefty468 .

Been training for over 1 year now!

Whether you're losing weight naturally or aided with supplements or surgery, one thing that will remain the same is consistency. Being consistent in what we eat, drink, and how active we are.  It's not a diet! It is a lifestyle change. Trust the process!!! 4 month difference.

I think the hardest thing you can ever do is truly love yourself. I look in a mirror and I still find flaws in how I look. Sometimes it's easier for others to see who you really are then for you to see yourself. Most people that look at me now will never know that I was 400 lb. But to me it always feels like it was just yesterday. If one thing I've learned is no matter where you are in your weight loss Journey You Need To Love Yourself each and every step you take. Remember that you are beautiful no matter what size you are. Each and every day I strive for a healthier me. Some days are easier than most but I've always kept going. I do have days that I don't love myself and I feel like a potato. But I know this is the only body I'm always going to have if I don't love it no one else will. Just remember to love yourself no matter what. Cherish the vessel your in 🤗

So happy to be in my own bed. I would love to sleep right now but surgeon said it’s not allowed until bedtime. Must get up every hour to walk and sip my fluid during that hour. #norestforthewicked #vsg .

Throwback to November 2017 where I decided to not give a fuck about what social media thought. This is my platform for my progress. Simple.  Everything else is extra... like me 😂

Never in a million years did I think I would make amazing friends. I also never thought anyone would care about this account either. But here we are and I’m grateful I did.

I was sitting here pouting due to it being that time of the month and was craving chocolate  so I made peanutbutter chocolate protein pudding. I used sugar/fat free chocolate pudding mix, skim milk and peanutbutter chocolate protein powder. It tastes fabulous!! #vsgjourney #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #bariatricsurgery #wls #weightlosssurgery #vsgfood #gastricsleeve #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #healthyfood #healthyeating #protein #pudding #losingweight #pcosweightlossjourney

So my monthly progress. Before I had VSG, I was following a KETO lifestyle. I lost 25 lbs following KETO. As I continue on the wild journey I am continuing to follow the KETO lifestyle.  Am I a “strict” keto, no. Currently I am not tracking my macros etc. I am just focusing on the food that goes into my body. As I gradually introduce more foods back into my diet over the next 4 weeks, I will begin to regulate my macros and start a workout regimen. Slow and steady wins the race! #wls #vsg #vsgcommunity #keto #wlscommunity #verticalsleeve #cleaneating

Can you tell the difference? I sure can! 1 year and 40lbs difference. Not a whole lot but definitely an improvement! I remember taking this picture and being extremely disappointed in myself. I'm proud of the girl then for striving towards all the goals and I'm proud of me now! .

I don’t know why all my pre weight loss photos are so bad 🙈😂 eyes half closed, mouth open catching flies and looking straight up like an uncle 🙄 but here I am. 6 months later, trying to discover what fashion suits me ♥️ I always thought I’d be the streetwear girl, but in reality i only loved wearing it because I could hide behind baggy tshirts, oversized hoodies and no heels. I’d never wear layers or crop tops or skirts like this. And although I didn’t buy this outfit it was nice to step out of my comfort zone and try these on. The biggest reward about this is that I can now walk into ANY shop and actually have confidence I’ll fit something. For years I’d buy offline and pray things would fit, (and tbh because i was short and obese, nothing would fit my shape). The feeling of being able to even fit in store changing rooms is also levelling up! So much more to this than just being able to go down sizes. The empowerment it gives to how you saw your self worth is saddening and elevating at the same time. We’re all on a journey somewhere! Thank you for following and know that I appreciate you! Levelling up 💪🏼 all yummy in the tummy 🤗  #sleevesociety #livingmybestlife #drliew #weightlosssupport #vsg #gastrectomy #vsgaustralia #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #bariatricsurgery #vsgeats #wlseats #wlscommunity #obesity #weightloss #loosingweight #healthierme #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlossgoals #losingweightjourney #weightlossprogress #motivation #weightlossresults #goldcoast

Everyone was getting ice cream and I wanted to feel better about my choice so I stuck with this mini Häagen-Dazs cup of Vanilla and let me tell you, it was very filling and satisfying

Met my nutritionist today.
She weighed me and I am now 331. I figured with how much more active I have been and how much I’ve changed my diet, I should’ve lost some sort of weight and sure enough I lost a pound. It might only be 1 pound but still, at least I didn’t gain. She then went over the whole nutrition part of the journey and instead of a 2 week pre op diet, she assigned me to a 3 week diet. Does anyone know why I was given a different number of weeks? I am thinking maybe because I am only 18, I’m not sure. All I know is I am so excited. My journey is just beginning.

I’ve never gone to the beach like ever. 
Yesterday I came out of my comfort zone and went to the beach with my younger sister, her friend and her friend’s mother. I can actually say I enjoyed my time there. It was so peaceful and the part we went to was so empty. 
I am suffering from severe sun poisoning and I am in a lot of pain, my eye is all swollen but I am looking at the bright side and the fact that I enjoyed myself yesterday and I felt so good about myself.

I apologize in advance for being so inactive. 
Today I had my monthly visit with the surgeon and to my surprise, I lost 5 pounds. 
I also had my psych evaluation and it went great. She was a really nice doctor and she told me there’s no reason why I shouldn’t be approved. Only 2 more monthly costs with the surgeon and then it’s go time. This part of my journey has flown by so fast and I cannot begin to express how excited I am to begin this new part of my life.

I had my 2nd appointment with my doctor today and I lost 5 pounds since last month (334 now). I was so afraid I gained weight because we have an electric stove and the power has been out for about 2 weeks now. It won’t be fixed until about April 24th and I have been eating take out. But I have been more active lately so I guess it balanced it all out. I scheduled my pysch evaluation and my first appointment with the nutritionist. Only 4 more appointments left until I get a surgery date and I am so excited.

Introductory post

Hello, my name is Anjel and I am 17 years old. I started my journey to getting bariatric surgery in March of 2017 but soon after stopped going to see that doctor because he no longer accepted my insurance so here we are now, in March of 2018. 
On February 23rd I met with my surgeon for a consultation, I feel more comfortable in this hospital than I did in the previous one. I feel more welcomed; the people are much more outgoing and the seats are much bigger😂
I hope that wasn’t a bad joke. 
My highest weight was 345 and I am currently 339. 
My dm’s are always open for any advice you might have for me as I work toward getting my bariatric surgery.
