Healing well, I have been so lucky with my recovery, I know they didn't pull out my organs but my pain has been minimal with no need for pain meds, which has been a welcome surprise, I have had worse period pain then the pain I have had with this recovery. I have been sleeping a lot though, which isn't anything new haha. .

At Perth, Western Australia

Loving the fact that I'm fitting into 2xxl Asian sizes and anyone whose bought clothes from ebay know that Asian sizes are tiny so woot woot. I'm even wearing a huge poofy petticoat under this dress and I don't look like a whale- double woot woot. Also ecstatic that I finally got the chance to wear my Skelton hands necklace from @youronestoppinupshop. Loving it all #feelinggood #vsg #wls #wlscommunity #vsgjourney #vsgmelbourne #vsglife #sleevedlife #bariatricbabes #watchbeckygo

I've said this many times before; I may not be the hottest, fittest, and my selfie game sucks... but I love myself, I love my determination and I'm content as I enjoy every part of my journey. The good, the heartbreak, and the ugly... it's all part of earning my wings.... no matter how much a cocoon wants to stay a cocoon; it cannot avoid turning into a butterfly... it's up to the butterfly to chose to fly or stay wishing it was still a cocoon.

This is what I ended up making for work lunch/snack I bought some chicken breast from the deli and spread some cream cheese on it then put a dill pickle in there and rolled it up. Also have some low fat cheese that was on sale, some olives and some salami that was on sale 😂 and some ryvita multi grain crackers. I'm making some little egg muffins in wonton wrappers to have for breakfast too.

Today and yesterday were not my best days. Pain got me and I’ve just been a little discouraged since weighing in. I barely ate today (500 cals) but that was just from lack of feeling well. Don’t worry I’m not intentionally starving myself or anything. Tomorrow is another day though and another chance to get where I need to be. October 27th is my next check in. Wish me luck!

Hi everyone! I'm Annette. A 42 yr old, single mama who has struggled with my weight all my life.

Here is an update of how my incisions are healing. The big, deep incision is the one they used to remove my stomach and therefore the one I’m most concerned about healing properly. I’ve been using scar creams and such, so 🤞🏽 it’ll work! #update #4dayspostop #surgeryincisions #healingprocess #scars #PostOp #PostOpUpdate #tijuana #tijuanasurgery #NewBeginnings #WLS #WLSJourney #WLSCommunity #VSG #AfterVSG #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery #vsggirls #Weightloss #gastricsleeve #wlsfamily #weightlossjournal #weightlossdiary #bariatricsurgery #bariatrics #surgery #weightloss #weightlossjourney

Thanks to @angiedone_vsg & @sleeve_me_seymour for their protein pumpkin pudding pie inspiration I whipped up one of my own tonight and it tastes amazing!!! I didn't end up using any actual pumpkin though because all 5 cans of pumpkin purée I had on hand were expired 😩 and I was already in the process of making it so boo on that! I ended up using a box of vanilla pudding (neither store I went to had sugar free), 3C of ff fairlife, a packet of nectar vanilla protein powder, 3tsp of pumpkin pie spice, a tub of cool whip, & a graham cracker pie crust. Here's the thing, it tastes delicious, but isn't quite as healthy as I was wanting it to be. I need to try again sometime with sugar free pudding and actual pumpkin purée and possibly amp up the protein powder a bit. Would of course be healthier not in the crust by a long shot too. And it could probably stand a bit less of the pumpkin pie spice also. So if cut into 10 pieces (instead of 8), it comes to 231 calories and 6g protein. Not the greatest, considering tiny tummy problems and goals. But I tried and it is really really tasty!

I finally made the infamous ricotta bake but added some ground beef to them since I'm on the soft foods phase. So it's pretty much lasagna minus the noodles. It made 8 of these cute minis and then I cooked up some pasta for the boys to have with theirs. I can't wait to try them out tomorrow!!! Each bowl comes to 554 calories and 48g of protein. I imagine I will only be able to eat 1/3-1/2 of one at a time. Each dish contains 1/4C each of the ricotta parm egg mixture, ground beef, & marinara and then topped with 2T shredded cheese. I'm curious if it's gonna be too much ricotta but we shall see. It looks delish!!!

Sauna yoga: 
With my daughter hiding...
I have been just soaking in summer. ☀️ A. Lot. 🌻
Before I lost weight I would hide under clothing, I would hide behind fat,  I would hide behind my personality, I would hide in bed. ☹️
Not anymore. 🎉😋
But during this practice I WAS hiding in the sauna… 🔥🔥
I went in dry but I came out soaking WET! 💦
And WOW does flexibility really increase in the heat!
