This was May 4th, exactly three weeks before my surgery. I have NEVER allowed photos like this to be taken of me, or any of the naked/underwear photos you can see on my feed. But when you get to the point of needing...NEEDING...wls, you have to make changes. Big changes. And you have to address all of your shit. What I’m really paying close attention to this month is starting the process of working out why I ate like I did. Here I am eating a pizza...a crazy good pizza...and I ate the whole thing. I wasn’t just eating enough for three people, I also have IBS, so I know that gluten and large amounts of cheese are going to lead to cramps and diarrhoea, but I ate it anyway. I’ve been sabotaging myself like that for years and I honestly have no idea why. So I’m trying to retrain my brain to be more disciplined and structured because that’s the only way I’m going to get through this successfully. My first step is throwing away whatever is left on my plate after ten minutes into a meal. I know that sounds like a very short time for a bariatric patient but that’s how long it takes for the food to hit your stomach, so right now, if I keep eating for 30min, I’m likely eating more food than I needed. This isn’t a perfect science and everyone is different but if I’m going to break my lifelong habit of grazing, which is basically binge eating, then I need to set firm boundaries. This is confronting and challenging but it’s going to help me get me to where I want to go...the Miss Teen USA pageant! #offermeadviceandiwillkillyou#andyourfamily#wls#vsgaustralia#bariatricsurgery#gastricsleeve#vsgaustralia#thatpizzawassofuckinggood#mybowelmovementswerenot#stillnotskinny
The struggle was real today, I didn’t want to workout for NOTHING, I procrastinated for so long and seriously started believing my excuses. It was so bad that I drank pre workout and still sat my ass on the couch and didn’t move but then something finally came over me... I got up put my shoes on and got my butt moving. I wanted to quit sooooo many times during my workout today but every time I thought about quitting I said just a little longer and you know what? I did 50 min instead of 30, I pushed myself harder because I didn’t want to do it. I was still trying to make excuses, I can’t even tell you how many times I said “it’s too hot, I need to go inside” but NO! That’s what the old me did and that’s why I got to where I was. I can NEVER let myself get to that point ever again. It was the darkest time of my life, I can’t and won’t go into details of how bad it really was. Let’s just say I hated life... but I don’t anymore and I’m beyond thankful for this beautiful opportunity at a second chance so I can’t let it slip by me! I’m off to bed now, I can’t wait to see how much harder I can push myself tomorrow ❤️ goodnight 💞 #vsg#vsgmotivation#motivation#motivationalquotes#weighlossmotivation#wls#wlsvsg#wlslife#fightingobesity#fightingformylife#iloveme#nevergiveup#teamvsg#teamlosing#teamworkout#tuesdaymotivation#iloveme#fitfam
Has anyone had gastric bypass surgery and is successfully doing keto??? I have been at it a month. Lost 10 lbs in the beginning. They are back. I’ve been stuck at around 180 for 8 months now. I had gastric bypass surgery 2 years ago. And I hit my final plateau. I watch my macros. Measure and weigh food. Drink water. Started supplements. I fast. Exercise. My hubby is doing keto as well and the Wright is falling off him. I fluctuate between 173-183. I’m scared this is getting too much. I’m confused about being a wls patient. I know my intake differs. I just need advice from other wls patients doing keto. Calories intake. Fat and protein in take. We eat less than normal people and I don’t know if I’m doing this all wrong!!! If someone could please be so kind to help me on this. I’m about to give up and I don’t want too!!! It’s making me crazy. I’m obsessing over the scale and food. I don’t like what it’s doing to me. If I can figure out what I’m doing wrong so I can get back on track. Please msg me if you can help!!! 💕💕💕 #ketolife#ketogeniclifestyle#ketocommunity#keto#ketosis#ketodiet#ketogenic#macros#lchf#healthy#ketoweightloss#ketofastosis#intermittentfasting#wls#wlscommunity#gastricbypass#rnycommunity#weightlosssurgery#vsg#needketohelp#needaketofriend

@adrienneosuna "It’s been a while since I posted this pic 💗 it’s been making its round again, ppl using it to sell their own programs or supplements or teas and claim I used them which I did not!! Best thing I did was stop obsessing over the scale and work out because it made me FEEL good and because I loved getting stronger! Results came and look 👀 the scale barely moved! So many of us girls rely on the scale to tell us if we are making progress and when it doesn’t reflect what we want we QUIT. What happens when you don’t quit though??? You get stronger, healthier, happier, and your body will reflect that!
I didn’t diet, I just focused on protein, intermittent fasting and heavy lifting with 2-3 days of cardio 🧡" _____________________

Started my weight loss journey 11 years ago, gastric bypass surgery August 2007, started at close to 330lbs, 307lb at surgery, kept most my weight off but saw it creeping back on. did whole 30 in April of this year and lost 10lbs, started keto end of April have lostb10lbs, more valuable is how i feel, the difference in my body, and that i believe this is 100% sustainable #frandersen7#transformationtuesday#keto#ketolife#ketofam#wls#wlstransformation#gastricbypass
