I'm back to what I weighed 10 years ago. It's bittersweet. I'm so happy. VSG saved my life. It gave me life. Everyday I'm experiencing #nsv . If you are wondering if you should do it the answer is yes. If you want to live again then the answer is yes. Just do it! Do it for you.
Next week @thebabe_campaign we will be kicking off a new fun summer bod challenge! ☀️👙 much needed after a week of island hopping and rum punch!
We’ve got some of our boss Babe trainers to whip your 🍑 into shape and the best nutrition to help burn fat while you sleep 🔥💤 SO excited for all the new babes who are jumping in!! Don’t worry, we’ve got your back(side)💪🏻😉 #thebabecampaign#bedtimebellybuster#bbb
Causal date night with the hubby. #NSV I’m wearing my daughter shirt. Disclaimer #noshadepost I really am wearing my daughter shirt and I will continue to celebrate my #NSV ’s because I’m worth it. I hope we can also learn (with all this mess) not to put ourself worth or self esteem in question over people posts. Life is much too fucking hard with Trump as president and us just being caddy...me included. Self growth people! We can do this!
Brutal run today since I decided at noon when it was already like 84° and no clouds in the sky, that I needed to get my run in because I had a busy afternoon. And... I just reviewed my @garmin watch and somehow I managed to drop my pace and earn a PR for my fastest mile time (at least since getting this watch).
Even when I thought my run kinda sucked I surprise myself. Though it did suck running in the heat and no cloud cover. I've gotta start getting my butt out the door to run by 7am soon. Texas heat is just unforgiving. But yay me! A 2nd #nsv today!
My Non Scale Victory !!!
Swipe to see me in my 16 size pants!! This weekend if you saw my IG story I was shopping for shorts, since the ones I was wearing were a size 10 and fitting loose around the waist.
I’m still under estimating myself and grabbing size 8 when I need a bit smaller. So I went back to the racks and grabbed the size 6 and BOOM it fit. .
I still can’t believe it and why one of the reasons I am consistent. I have my days and I’m not perfect but I never quit. One of the things I always tell my Challengers is never ever quit, set backs are life but pick yourself up and keep going. .
Who would of thought that by Working out streaming from my Laptop, TV or IPhone from home or anywhere, and eating clean and having my daily shake is the reason why I get results. .

I’m all about non-scale victories! Seriously throw that thing out and instead ask yourself these questions how do you feel, how are your clothes fitting, have you lost inches, are you getting stronger?! When I started round 1 over 3 months ago I started with 8s & 10s and was seriously wishing I hadn’t sold my 5s... #80dayobsession#nsv#80doround2#dohardthings#strongwomen
I like my burgers with extra feathers as they say a McDonalds. This halibut burger was so delicious. I ate 2 ! at 1 point a patty why not. I made my own tartar sauce so good. Dinner was ready in 10 minutes!!! For my tarter sauce I minced 1/4 shallot, 4 cornichons minced, tsp horseradish, dried dill a few dashes, couple rasps of lemon zest, 1/2 tsp lemon juice, couple turns of black pepper, 4 tbsp of 1/2 fat Hellmans mayo. My hubby really enjoyed the fresh flavours and asked for it again! Also side note he informed me that he has lost 10lbs the lightest he’s been in a long time, so he’s not going to judge my cooking.#nsv#wwcanada 🇨🇦 #wwfreestyle#weightlosscooking
Meet: @Drea_GetsFit I was to my braking point, ashamed to take any kind of pictures. Family trips only have a few photos with me in them and it made me sad that I was missing out on memories due to being embarrassed of being in front of the camera. I made the decision and was dedicated to change that! I wasn't somebody that was comfortable going to the gym. I started out small by doing walks and did little workouts in my home! I slowly built up strength and confidence and it's been 2 years now that I've been working out from my own home venturing out to some public places just to make workout fun!! I feel happy, healthy and full of energy. I'm not self conscious to go out in public any more. I keep small goals to hit to keep me going, living & loving life! Starting tip: Slowly start...from there before you know it you'll be more conscious of what you're actually eating and you'll want to start eating better, replace your snacks with healthier choices instead of chips maybe grab an apple. Small daily changes like this will add up it will become your Normal everyday life! This will help to make it a lifetime lifestyle change! Normal everyday life! Finally; I highly recommend and truly believe in is being around like-minded people follow accounts like wlstories that will keep you motivated, give you ideas to keep you going! #wlstories . . .

#NSV alert!!! This little thing looks sooo tight on me but trust me, it was a hell of a lot tighter. I really want to use this as a before once I get to my goal weight!!! :D •
UPDATE (on all things new): I've been feeling rly depressed lately but I'm working through it and finding my motivation again! Doing a zero carb/ beef and butter thing this week; I've lost 1.4 lbs so far (1 day). Went waaaay over my carbs today tho.. 10 net :( I don't expect a big loss tomorrow but you know, it'd be nice. I really want to see 188 tomorrow! Since I'm at 189.2 right now. My secret hope is that I can somehow get down to 184 before the end of April, but my secret secret secret hope is that I can be 175 by the start of June :) guess I'm gonna have to keep killing it to get there!!
#NSV today. Had some pretty severe mood swings today, at least that is what I'm calling it. Started the day on a high and finished it feeling blah and just wanting to go to bed for the night. I had a lot stuff planned after work, vacuum, mop floors and grocery shopping to name a couple. I forged ahead, vacuuming done, grocery shopping done. Normally I would say that is the win knowing how I was feeling, but it's not even the ones I'm counting. When I get stressed and or depressed my go to habit in the evening is to have a drink (or two). I have been alcohol free for a week and feeling good. I was literally talking myself down from buying something to drink when I was at the store. I won!!!!! I came home with no alcohol, no chips and made myself a healthy Cobb salad. I did not let how I was "feeling" derail me from my goals today. 😁😁😁 #nonscalevictory#soberlife#gettinghealthy#takingcareofme#onedayatatime#smallchangesmatter#determinedtowin#dealingwithdepression#stressedout
Call it what you want but yo!
Okay, so lol these are jeans, not jeggings and they are Guess jeans. I never in a million years thought my chubby body would be able to fit in these... But I'm so tired of all the clothes out there that are just too extra, that I decided to go into Jean Machine... Not thinking I'd find anything but I walked over to the sale rack and I grabbed a pair. They were ok but the sales associate brought over these ans I put them on and holy fuck.
I didn't have to do some weird fucking dance, there's no gap at my ass and they don't suffocate my legs.
They're also a size 32 waist (clothing sizes are fucked) and they're Guess jeans for fuck sakes.
Thank you Keto.
5 months ago and 25lbs heavier it was a struggle to find the energy to do anything. I was tired all the time it was a struggle to get out and go for a walk. I felt awful!
Fast forward to today, and 25lbs lighter! I feel amazing, I want to go outside and walk and go play at the park and have little picnics in the yard with the kids.
Waking up in the middle of the night with a sick baby doesn't make me so tired the next day I could barely get off the couch.
I have come to appreciate how important my health is, how important it is to take care of your body, you only get one! #keto#ketoliving#lovelife#family#healthy#ketodiet#nsv#feelingamazing
Happy Taco Tuesday! I had some delicious 4sp fish tacos with a side of roasted veggies. The tacos were topped with cabbage, cilantro and 1tsp of tartar sauce. I still can believe that I eat fish. A year ago I would have gagged with the thought of going anywhere near it. Okay so it is swai so it does not taste like fish all that much but it is still a #nsv . Thank you @weightwatchers for encouraging me to try new things. #wwfreestyle#wwonline#smarpoints
#nsv those ugly popcorn shirts you see everywhere used to mock me. I couldn't even try one on for fun because I stretched it so much it lost the popcorn effect. Tried on about 10 tonight just because I could. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #transform # transformation #weightloss#weightlossjourney#byebyefat#loseit#weightlossstory
Playing a bit of dress up tonight and trying to decide what to wear to a wedding this weekend. I love being able to fit into clothes that I couldn’t fit into before AND feeling super confident at that! (I have a poll in my IG stories- go vote between this one and a black one (for a semiformal wedding))
Oh no baby, what is you doing 😱😂 Ok, can't help but laugh when I look at the first picture (I'm chugging a beer btw). Besides laughing, I also can't help but feel a little sad about the person I used to be. I was very insecure in my body and it was difficult for me to relax around new people so I would drink way too much (when you're big, you gotta drink a lot to get drunk--we're talking like shots in the double digits here). I also used to settle for having shitty people/relationships in my life because I hadn't yet realized HOW AWESOME I TRULY WAS (jk...kind of 🙄) And when I did happen to be in a stable relationship, I would then question why some skinny dude would want to be with some fat girl (I know looks are not everything--these were just thoughts of self loathing that frequently ran through my head). Losing weight doesn't solve everything but it taught me how to actually take care and like myself. I used to look at other girls with fit bods in envy wishing I looked like them -- not thinking YA, THAT COULD BE ME. At this time in my journey, I no longer want to be fit like "them" -- I just want to be the best and healthiest me. Anyway, this caption is all over the place bc that picture on the left is bringing back all kind of memories 🤣 but bottom line, it's never too late to turn things around!! #transformationtuesday#chugchugchug#jkdont#selflove
#transformationtuesday video style today 😎✌️
Becoming obsessed with the scale is never going to make you feel better - no matter the number you’re going to rip yourself apart ... I’m fessing up today ::Hi I’m Amanda and I’m addicted to my scale✋::
So instead of comparing pictures or measurements or weight today I’m looking back at week 1 cardio vs week 8 cardio - and ::of course:: I immediately focus on the physical 😌 I can’t help it ✋ I meaaaan damnnn 😬
But next look closely - I was MODIFYING moves I power through now - I am flying off that floor vs barely getting an inch off the ground - THAT my friends is progress - and has ZERO to do with my size .
As a fellow coach says #fithasnosize 👊
Eight weeks later I am FASTER - FITTER - STRONGER .
And I’m proud of that! I got here all at home - in my basement 💁♀️ - motivated by a team of amazing coach friends and a family of like minded women all doing this program with me - showing me what’s possible - believing in me and in themselves 🙌
Ready for that kind of support? These kind of results? My May Fit Camp enrollment is ending soon! Get your spot girl!! Let’s do this! 💕👯♀️
After struggling with my weight for basically my whole life I decided to get the gastric sleeve surgery on 12/17/17. I want to share my journey to help others as well as to help motivate me ! I won’t be discussing numbers - not till I reach goal - I want to reflect on all the non scale victories that come with weight loss #wls#vsg#vsgcommunity#gastricsleeve#bariatricsleeve#bariatricsurgery#nsv
So amidst all my self wallowing I’ve been doing today, i figured I’d bring up a positive!! I bought this corset tank top over the weekend & I have to say it was a HUGE NSV for me. Mainly bc it IS a corset lace up top (something I’ve never worn before lol). I went in the dressing room 3 times before I tried this on, let alone took it off the rack. I kept seeing it & saying this would never look good on me but it’s cute for someone smaller. I was in @torridfashion & they were having a BUY ONE CLEARANCE ITEM, GET TWO FREE sale (also, amazing deal people). I ended up having 5 things and needed 1 more to get 4 free!! So I finally sucked it up and grabbed it & tried it on. And when I looked in the mirror, I could NOT believe what I saw! It actually looked... really cute I’ll admit. And t was insanely & unexpectedly flattering. This is a PSA for all you girls who see something on the racks & think it won’t look good on you. Try it on!!! You just may surprise yourself 😉 I can’t wait to wear this this summer & honestly, I don’t think I’ll feel self conscious in it at all 😍💕 second rant of the day... Done 😂😂😂 have a good night y’all !! #ww#wwfreestyle#wwfam#wwfamily#wwsisterhood#wwsmartpoints#freestyle#smartpoints#smartpointsww#nsv#torrid#weightwatchers#weightwatchersfreestyle#weightwatchersnsv#wwnsv
#whole30day7 has me FINALLY enjoying flavored carbonated water. i used to be a heavy soda drinker (for the caffeine and the flavor) so i picked up some #lacroix and #simplybalanced carbonated waters and have basically been forcing myself to drink them when i get the urge for a soda. however, today i actually enjoyed it and could see myself replacing my sugary drinks with this even after #whole30 . id say that's a #nsv for me 🤗
Strange #nsv . I keep looking down and seeing my belt. And it keeps weirding me out. How am I a shirt-tucker, and how is it that I can see said belt and not just more belly over it? Odd... but I guess I can work with it. Weird things are happening with this Keto gig. Like most women who come to the Keto side, I’ve lost weight other times in my life, but Keto actually melts the fat. I’m legit getting a waist! #ketolesbo#ketoon#lesbeketo#ketowoman#ketogenicweightloss#weightloss#nonscalevictory
✨And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.✨
_____________________________________________________________ It’s insane what a difference doing all the right things does for your body and your mind. To be honest for awhile I’d been going through the motions. Working out half assed and eating “ok” (processed foods, too many treats, etc). It’s as simple (and as complicated) as knowing what you need to do, and then actually following through. Eating pretty, less processed foods, lots of movement, at least 6hrs of sleep, and personal development have this girl feeling better than ever. Super excited to see what comes with continued consistency 💪🏽
_____________________________________________________________ Also....I totally need a new selfie mirror 🤣💁🏼♀️
Tears. Some of my challengers are seeing some AMAZING non-scale victories. I am incredibly proud of these women for their hard work on their health. It’s not all about the scale, people. I repeat: it’s not all about the scale, people. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
You can do this, too. You can FEEL better. You can get stronger. You can change your relationship with food. .
I’d love to help you. My next challenge group starts next week! Let me know if you want in! 💪🏼💪🏼
