Here is what I meal prepped today. Swipe left to see pictures. Spent approx 3 hours (including cleanup...my mom taught me to wash dishes as soon as they are dirty ❤️) 1️⃣0 point marinara sauce in the crockpot 2️⃣ Roasted Green Beans (still frozen in picture) 3️⃣chopped up red onions and red and green peppers which I used to make cauliflower rice and 4️⃣sautéed frozen spinach, pepper and onion mix and garlic...I will add this to one cup of marinara and one cup of chicken broth for a filling 0 point soup 5️⃣ put remaining peppers and onions in air fryer at 390 for 20 mins...they get crispy and so tasty!!! I then put in fridge and use in egg white omelettes or mixed in with green beans 6️⃣ I cooked up 3 packages of Turkey Bacon to use in omelettes, breakfast sandwiches or wraps-3 slices is one smart point! 7️⃣ sautéed up frozen shrimp from Costco in seasonings and then one tablespoon of Garlic Vinaigrette 8️⃣ Blueberry and Chocolate 1 smartpoint "doughnuts" made in loaf pans instead of doughnut pans! I have to meal prep or I'm not successful during the week. This gives my husband and I plenty of zero and low point food choices!! #ww#wwmealprep#wwfood#wwgirl#wwnurse#wwworks#wwfooddiary#wwsmartpoints#wwfamily#wwmafia#wwcommunity#wwwarriors#wwfoodjournal#wwig#weightloss#mealprep#weightlosstransformation#weightlossjourney#weightlossmotivation#weightwatchers#weightwatcher#weightloss#wwmichigan
When the journey began I had no idea what life had in store for me... many think I cheated because I had surgery but truth is, surgery is a tool and it's hard to deal with life after surgery.
As an emotional comfort eater, I decided on surgery to help me with portion control; I've been blessed to have no complications and no food allergies / reactions.
When I first walked into the gym I was at my highest or 383... about a week later I met @ecal_fitness the human that would be my trainer for the next year, his first goal was for me to reach 300 pounds , I just laughed and thought he was fucken insane, I haven't weighed 300 pounds in YEARS.... since my surgery, I've lost my grandfather and it threw my life upside down, my grandfather was more like a father so losing him was truly difficult... I'm getting back on track has been hard, I've hardly been to the gym, I'm working on the eating part; that's becoming easier... Today is exactly 10 weeks since my surgery; I've lost a total of 66 pounds; last we checked I've lost 21 inches all around my body & I fit in a size 3XL shirt and size 24 jeans... (2 sizes down since July) the journey has not been easy but I've been blessed with an amazing & loving family support system, a trainer that kicks my ass once a week and always gives me the talk when I need some sense knocked into me... people who understand that life happens and help me cope with it in my own terms without judging... I'm still blown away when I see how much I've changed in so little time; I could've lost more or I could've done this but at the end of the day this is my journey in my life and losing 66 pounds, for me; is amazingly great and I'll cheer to that! Here's to 66 more to be closer to my final goal.... Happy Sunday! 💕 #WeightLossTransformation#LifeTransformation#Changes#LifeChanges#WeightLossDiary#WeightLossJourney#NoExcuses#GastricSleeveSurgery#WeightLoss#WeightLossJournal2017#Motivated#MyStory#Inspired#Determined#Fitness#FitnessJourney#WeightLossSurgery#FitJourney#GymLife#GymJunkie#Workout#VSGSupport#VSG#VSGWeightLoss#WLSCommunity#WLSCommunity#BariatricSurgery#BariatricSleeve#BariatricSupport#BariatricCommunity

Any guess how much this hanging pannus weighed? See the answer at the end of the video. How close were you?
A panniculectomy is the surgical removal of the lower abdominal skin. It is most commonly performed in patients following significant loss. The skin often causes issues with hygiene and daily activities of living. With proper documentation, these procedures may be covered by your insurance company.
This patient lost over 150 lbs. following #bariatricsurgery and had recurrent infections under there abdominal skin folds despite being on prescription topical medications. This patient underwent a panniculectomy to remove this extra skin. Patients generally stay one night in the hospital.
For many #weightloss patients, the residual skin can be a both a physical and psychological reminder of where you came from and not where you are going. #plasticsurgery isn't for everyone, but when done for the right reasons, it can be life changing.

Raised platform sumo squats holding a DB 👌🏻
Maintain muscle contraction and hold the stretch at the bottom to really feel that glute pump 🙂
Yes, I train legs often. It's my favourite body part to train. Most of my videos are of my favourite exercises or movements.
No, that definitely does not mean I don't train everything else. I train for aesthetics, but I also train for power, speed, balance, and endurance as much as possible. I'm an athlete at heart and forever will be! 😍
#SUNDAYSTRETCH : Stretching is rarely spoken about in fitness! It’s crucial to stretch your joints and muscles to prevent any form of injury! Took today to just stretch and do some cardio, on my day 27 of the 30 day cut. I'm feeling some serious aches and pains right about now. But, I know it's normal because I'm putting stress on my muscles and joints and I'm not eating or drinking enough for them to recover like they should. Don’t forget to stretch! 🤸🏻♀️
I am just so obsessed with this face. I never knew how much joy motherhood would bring me. I had no idea. I was terrified and at moments regretted getting pregnant because I was so scared. My pregnancy was the hardest time in my life. I was miserable for 9 months. I suffered from depression and morning sickness the entire time. Now that my daughter is here I've experienced a love that I never knew possible. I would do over the past 9 months over and over again if that meant I could have her in my life.
guys! I've had a panini press forever but for some reason have never used it until today! I'm so excited/proud of my cute little wrap I made in it 😂lavash bread, hummus, avo, peppers, spinach, cucumber, & daiya! It was so good 😩
Lunch is served! I woke up this morning craving some Thai food, so I thought today's the day I try out my clean version of "pad kra pao" which is traditionally made with fried ground pork or chicken but i switched it up and made it clean eating friendly with ground bison. However since today's my day off I didn't stop there, I also made a delicious pineapple cauliflower "fried" rice to accompany it. Thai food is fast, easy, and simple changes and substitutions can make it "clean eating friendly" This 30 minute recipe competes with any Thai restaurant in my area and yes that's a challenge 😂
That was a good workout! I don't think I've ever done my full #legday program before. It's a long one, and I usually have to cut one round off each set because I don't have time. But I got up and in there earlier today, and got it all done. And wow!
