My Pink Tank Transformation💕I KNOW you can do this because I've done it! Back when I weighed 240 lbs, I was lazy. I'd sit in front of the TV every day after coming home from work! I always had an excuse to not workout. Until one day I got TIRED OF BEING LAZY & I decided to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT💪🏻 So I worked my butt off for 3 years working out consistently, watching what I ate and always picked myself back up when I'd fall off track👊🏻 STAY POSITIVE. TAKE YOUR PHOTOS/SELFIES to compare every once in a while! Be your own motivation💪🏻
I don’t have a dedicated one day weigh in a week because everyday is weigh in day. EVERYDAY. That’s how it works for me. I don’t need the mystery of “oh I wonder what I weigh” to motivate me. That way of thinking gives me weight loss center brain and that makes me sad and angry. I need to know how my body performs after each day of different macro totals, higher/lower calories etc to find my sweet spot...and for me 800-900 is the sweet spot. When I hit my fat gram goal the day before I have a good weigh in day. Tracking works. Being accountable works. Just get over yourself and out of your own way and GET IT DONE!
I’ve reached 6/10 of my weight goals I’m more than half way there. I can’t believe it! I’m going to reassess my ultimate weight goal after reaching my initial goal.
Day 5 post op: This has honestly proven to be so much harder than I could have ever imagined. I tried so hard to mentally prepare myself and I’ve never been so unprepared. I’m on a strict 2 week clear liquid diet and supposed to be getting 40g of protein in a day plus 64oz of water. I’m not hitting my water target however I’m getting tons in. I’m no where near my protein target. Everything is so sweet and makes me feel sick. I’ve tried diluting the drinks and it doesn’t work. I try to stay positive and happy for those around me, but right now it’s just not working. I know it’s only day 5 but the road seems so long. #vsgpostopweek1#vsgpostopdiet#vsgfamily#vsgpostop#vsgjourney#vsgcommunity#vsgfamily#vsg#wls#wlscommunity#wlsfamily
It’s past my bedtime but I had to share this. It’s amazing how a 70 pound difference makes this look like a completely different shirt, but nope. It’s the exact same one!! Didn’t make it to the gym at all last week so it felt good to get back in there today and get myself moving. I love seeing the changes in my physical abilities each time I’m there. It makes me feel like a whole new person.
Almost A Year In between these two chicks. 😮
Damn, she went through it. I’m so proud of her for believing that she could if she persisted.
The stretch marks are still there.
The loose skin. The imperfections.. but they are mine..& they show the roads I’ve traveled through with this body.
*Days of Sadness
👉🏻But this body...she’s mine and she’s taken me this far. & we’ve got so many more miles to go.
Love yourself through every turn & valley babe. You are so worth it!! & SO capable of being the biggest ass kicker. 😜
I let doubt ruin a lot, for a long time.
Don’t let that take one more damn day of your happiness. Please.
Becoming me. Releasing her... was the BEST DECISION I could have made. ✌🏼 You are a STRONG WOMAN. -
Stand TALL AND REPRESENT! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Not everyday is going to feel like you are on top of the world, some days are going to feel like the roles are reversed. When these days creep up we have to remind our selves how far we have actually come. Don't loss sight of all you have already accomplished. Everything else will come with time. At my heaviest the scale tipped at 700lbs. I was killing my self slowly till eventually I hit rock bottom and woke up. 2 years and 200lbs later I have a new life. I know I still have a ways to go, but I'm happy I'm off to a great start. .
