Tagged by @thenewjackie33 for #dolooklikeyourdriverslicense. The answer is an emphatic NO! Lol. And my weight on my drivers license says 290. It said 225 for years. However, one year when I was well over 300 lbs, when I was faced with the question of any corrections, I just knew the lady behind the desk was thinking that 225 was a lie, so I lied again and said 290. Even at 370, I wasn't willing to put it on my drivers license. In our state you can get a new license, but it is only good until the expiration date of your current one. So I will be waiting until 2018 to get a new drivers license. I haven't had any issues so far.

WHOS READY TO GET RAW AF?!?! I dipped into the archives to find some of my heaviest before pictures! Yes my friends this is what a 146lb weight loss looks like! I was SO sick and unhealthy back then! Had severe fatty liver disease I was 17 and could barely walk! My day to day was dealing with severe depression, binge eating and absolutely no self worth! Having the VSG is literally the single greatest decision I've ever made! For the first time I really feel like I'm ALIVE. Not just taking up space. I can actually play with my kids and be the mom they deserve and god willing have one biologically one day! It's taken me a long time to feel worthy, and with the help of my surgery and amazing support I get of here and irl I now realize how worthy, loved, and beautiful I am. ❤️
I just booked my accom for this so I thought another shout out was in order!! Get ya assss down for a catch up! Doesn't matter if you are pre op post op or just in this wonderful community of ours I wanna meet you!! #vsg #wls #gastricsleevesurgery #bariatricsurgery #wlsaustralia #aussiewlsbabes #melbwlsmeetup2017 #curvycass_reborn
Meet: @farishtaaaaaaa My 22nd year of living, I was in love, happy and 300lbs. The only issue was, I'd get sick so often, due to my morbid obesity. I'd always end up in the hospital somehow with loved ones surrounding me. That same year, someone very dear to me was diagnosed with a very rare blood disease. The difference between him and I, I had a choice to get better, he didn't. And that crushed me. I chose my path, he simply woke up to his new fate. I knew if I wanted to be there to take care of him and others, that I would have to take care of myself first...and so I did. My personal current journey is to continue persuing confidence. Even after the weightloss it's something I struggle with daily. What does Body positivity mean to me? To love your exterior is to be at peace with your interior. To treat yourself with love and kindness and to allow that light to be spread to others who need it. Starting TIP! Keep failing, keep on failing!! If I had feared failing I would have never got to the attempt that led to success. #wlstories . . . More pics of this transformation available on our snapchat; username: wlstories

Crispy baked eggplant! I've never made eggplant before, so I was scared of the outcome. It's actually not bad at all! Not pictured is the bomb Italian chicken the hubband made. 👍👍 #eggplantvirgin #wls #wlscommunity #VSG #sleevedlife #verticalgastricsleeve #weightlosssurgery #eatyourveggies

Me, after being a brat about dieting, still feeling hungry, eating pancakes 🥞, and then realizing I'm just being a brat and probably need a nap. #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgeats #gastrectomy #verticalsleeve #wls #prewls #wlscommunity #bariatric #presurgerydiet #lowcarb #bariatrics
Tagged by the lovely @timetodeflate and @melanievsg for a #beforeduringafter · Seeing side-by-side photos never ceases to amaze me. It puts how far I have come into perspective and helps me remember why I continue to make healthy choices on a daily basis ❤️
Just thought I'd share this with everyone. When I started out I weighed a whopping 348lbs and was told that when it was all said and done I could expect to be about 201lbs. Well that wasn't good enough for me. 👎🏼 So in the time I had to to wait for my surgery I started changing my eating habits, I joined a gym (scariest shit I've ever done) and I worked my ass off. 👊🏼 By the time I got to have my #wls I was down to 281lbs. Then I was told I could expect to get down to 181lbs as my lowest weight. 🙄 Well here I am 11 months post #rny and I've reached that goal. But I am not done yet! 🖐 I want to get down to 174lbs by the end of June just in time for my one year surgiversary. Thereby having lost half of my my body weight. ❤️ Still I won't be done. I have more weight that I plan on losing. I have goals. They are my goals and no one else's. So in other words...Do not let anyone tell you when you need to stop. This is a personal journey and only we can decide when we are done. 🙌🙌🙌 . . #wls #gastricbypass #rny #gastricsleeve #vsg #isthisreallyme #weightlosstransformation #weightlossinspiration #obesenomore #obesitysurvior #cantstopwontstop #mylifemyjourney #dontjudgeme #lovingmylife
Saw this in my #wls group on Facebook and the caption was, "Never forget where you came from." Kinda funny. #vsgdiva #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney
My sister @jamies_journey know how to make a sista feel good. She put this picture together and I just love it. I know I am a long way from where I want to be but am also a long way from where I was. #vsg #wls #vsgjourney #wlcommunity #100lbsdown
So today I killed it on the elliptical! I can't believe I did 2 miles in less than 25 minutes! I'm so proud of myself! I was sweating like a fat cow but it felt so good! When I started a month ago I wouldn't even go to the elliptical 5 minutes and I tapped out! Today I did 40 minutes total! My speed was about 6 the majority of the time! #crushinggoals I also did 30 minutes on the treadmill & did some arm exercises! Trying to to build muscles in my arms so I can eventually say goodbye to these bat wings with surgery!
Used a kids plate for dinner 😂 thanks @transforming_troy for your post a while back, I used it tonight... well I mixed a few other things in it. Grilled chicken,low fat honey dijon, ms. Dash salt free garlic & herb, black pepper, and a little bit of veggie broth. It's actually pretty damn good! Also made Trader Joe's mashed potatoes. I definitely over served! Oh well now I have lunch for tomorrow! #vsgjourney #vsgeats #wlseats #vsg #thisiscrazy
So I planned all day on not going to the gym. I had a long day at work and didn't sleep well last night so I was making excuses for myself all day long. I got home and Zach asked me 'we goin today?' I moaned and groaned but I realized I can't keep expecting to do things TOMORROW. That's how I ended up ballooning up to 366lbs! Today is so worth it - no excuses! So I got my lazy butt to the gym and ran/walked my fasted mile ever!! From barely being able to walk at 2mph on the treadmill to running. That's right, I was actually running!! Do it today, y'all. Do it for yourself and your future. Next goal is to do a color run! Who wants to join me!? #wls #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgery #weightloss #extremeweightloss #gym #mystory #extremeweightloss #dontbelazy #gettothegym #vsg #vsginstacrew #wlscommunity #goals #motivateyourself
I'm so upset!! I finished everything that was required for surgery early in this month and now I might have to wait til sometime in July yo have my #vsg done ! 💔😫😢. #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #wlsjourney #wls #wlscommunity
this birthday cake flavor 👌🏼🎂
Being able to cross my legs without my legs going numb has been one of the greatest non scale victories. #nonscalevictory #nsv #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #rny #rnylife #rnysupport #rnyjourney #rnycommunity #vsg #vsgjourney #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity
So this happened today. My first born is officially a kindergartner. I cannot believe it! One of my most precious inspirations and reasons for deciding on living a healthier and happier life. It's paying off! Looking forward to sharing these milestones with her and so glad I'm healthy enough to say I'll be around for MANY more to come!
I am one happy camper after my appointment today with my doc. I didn't have to have a fill, and he's proud that I've lost 36 in less than two months! I've been cleared to eat anything within reason, and he encouraged me to try different meats to see how I react. I also bought some body building tapes that he recommended. I can't wait to exercise and eat veggies without limitations!!!!
Today's food- missing is the fajita meat I had for lunch. Remembering to take pics is hard! And I had 4 of those butterfingers over a period of 8 hours and I'm not happy about it but I'm proud that I posted it here. #accountability #beingaccountable #vsgmeals #vsg #verticalsleevegastrectomy #bariatricsleeve
All my birthday presents are things to use post surgery (except the travel pillow). Got a water bottle, travel coffee mug and a cup warmer for my desk. It's weird not celebrating with food, drinks, and cake. Heading to gym now, happy birthday to me. #vsgjourney #vsg
Tried the Blondie today ... tasted like artificial sweeteners and was awful .... however the regular chocolate brownie was good and can't wait to try it again after I've warmed it up! I was so looking forward to the blondie, too ... with how expensive these are it's a major bummer to have to throw half the box away 😤 #lowcarb #vsgeats #vsg #vsgcommunity #fitfam #wls #wlseats #wlscommunity #sleevedlife #eatmeguiltfree #brownies #dessert #sweettooth #lowcarbdiet
So one of the biggest struggles after surgery was knowing I had to change my relationship with food.; I was addicted. But I wasn't going to set unrealistic expectations. I wasn't going vegetarian or vegan, and I wasn't going to only eat raw or clean or nothing processed. I'm still me and I'm still human, and more importantly I'm still broke. But I am much more aware now, and careful, and I try to plan a little better. Meal prep on Sunday's so I'm ready for the week. Plus I get fuller much faster so everything lasts me longer and that's a great money saver. A few of my favorites I've made so far. Black bean burger with guac, pico de gallo, and onion on a sandwich flat. Lettuce roll ups with tuna topped with avocado and tomato marinated in balsamic vinaigrette. My own version of a healthier pizza took a small soft taco shell topped with pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni, cooked on the stove top like a quesadilla. And my favorite salads! Topped with corn, black beans, avocado, tomato, cheese, and hard boiled eggs. I could eat them everyday. 😋🍽 #progress #loveyourself #love #foodporn #food #foodpic #foodie #ilovefood #comfortfood #healthyfood #heathy #eatgood #eat #eatwell #eatright #doingme #doingmybest #yummy #gastricsleeve #vsg #vsgpostop #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #vsgsurgery #vsgeats #vsgfood #livingthedream2017

#beforeandaftereats of my dinner. Simple lettuce wrap with black forest ham shredded cheese tomato with mayo and mustard. Being late for work this morning threw me off completely. I had to have a simple dinner. The after picture isn't as pretty 😂 Hope everyone had a good day. 💜 #weightlosstransformation #weightlossdiary #weightloss #weightlosseats #wls #wlsjourney #wlscommunity #vsg #vsgjourney #vsgcommunity #bariatric #bariatricsleeve #verticalsleeve #wlseats #vsgeats #teamlosing #lettucewraps #
Rant‼️Today I had a family member tell me the ins and outs about a Ketosis Diet (only because they have previously done a fucking Ideal Protein diet.. so they know it all, right? right!). I showed her a picture of a Keto breakfast one of y'all posted with eggs, avocado, tomato and cottage cheese -- apparently the avocado is an ABSOLUTE "no no" .. "tomatoes have sugar and you can't go into Ketosis if you have sugar" .. WTF!!! Is she for real?! You do not have to starve yourself to get into Ketosis!! It's a high fat diet. Avocados are GOOD for you. Vegetables are GOOD for you. Not everyone is going to have the same experience on a keto diet, my Keto is going to be different from your Keto, and your keto is going to be different from Jimmy's. So let's not hate on eachother, and be supportive instead!! 🤘🤗
My last day off work from VSG surgery turned into an impromptu day of hookey and sandcastle building. Who knew you could easily log 15k steps walking in waves and collecting seashells. . . . . . . . #WLSCanucks #WLSjourney #VSG #WLS #WLScommunity #VSGcommunity #VSGjourney #WLSpostop #verticalsleeve #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevecommunity #bariatricsurgery #weightlossjourney #sleeved #VSGsupport #WLSCanada #weightlossjourney
my thoughts on the pulled pork i got from walmart!
Still not feeling 💯 but I managed to churn out my planned 5 miles! . . Running abroad was awesome but there's no place like home. Cooper river is one of my fave places to run. Fun fact: I was a rower in high school and won my first 🥇 here! . . . . #vsg #verticalsleeve #verticalsleevegastrectomy #vsgcommunity #weightlosssurgery #wls #wlscommunity #bariatricsurgery #bariatriccommunity #runnergirl #wlsrunner #runfie #fitness #halfmarathontraining #mandabees
Had to rethink my turkey roll up.. I was eating it way too fast. So so quartered the piece of cheese and wrapped them individually 😃😃 #vsgeats #sleever #getinmypouch #sleevesurgery #vsgjourney #vsg #wlscommunity #wls
Meal prep for tomorrow. Spiralised aubergine, courgette and chicken sausage egg white bake for breakfast. Chicken pot zoodle for lunch, and spicy chicken lettuce cups for dinner. Tomorrow is chest day so ALL of the protein 😁😁😁 #bariatriclife #bariatriceats #bariatricfood #vsg #vsgfood #vsgeats #weightlossjourney #weightlossfood #food #foodporn #f52grams #wls #eatinghealthy #weightloss #extremeweightloss #diet #health #fitfam #eatclean #highproteindiet #onthetable #instafood #foodphotography #vsgcommunity #eatwell #cleaneating #foodstagram #mealprep #chicken #inspiralized
Change of plan for today's lunch. We had a taco guy at work, so I had this. Only ate one corn tortilla. I also had some queso fresco with it (not pictured.) Saving my meals already prepped for tomorrow. #backontrack #makingtherightchoices
A year ago today my entire life changed. 05/24/2016 will always have a special place in my heart. I was given my life back through #vsg 95lbs down and I'm #nevergoingback can't wait to wear this swimsuit on beaches of Miami next month.
Haven't made a yummy stir fry in forever! This was well overdue!
One of the nurse told me if I want to go home.. I have to eat mostly everything. I'm like I can't finish everything... 🤔
Needed a snack. These are kind of like a low carb cheese it with a different crunch. They'll work! #vsgeats #vsgdiet #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsginstacrew #vsgpreop #wlscommunityvsg #wls #bariatricbabe #vsgcrew #vsgcrew #vsgjourney #vsgliving #vsggirls #vsgbabes #vsgsurgery
