18 Month progress pictures!
Read about my story below: ❤️
I follow a ketogenic diet and use the "protein is the goal, carb is the limit (20g net) and fat is is satisfy" approach..everyone ketos different, this is what has worked for me.
I do not track macros or calories (with the exception of keeping my carbs under 20g net). I listen to my body. If you want to calculate yours, there are lots of keto calculators online and it's based on your height, weight, etc .
I intermittent fast. I did not start this right always. I stopped feeling hungry in the morning after about 2 months. I generally follow a 16/8 (eat within an 8 hour window and fast for 16) but I listen to my body and eat when I'm hungry.
I incorporated excercise in October 2017; 9 months in, but I wish I had started earlier. I switch up what I do all the time to time but at the moment I am doing a power (weights) class at the gym 2- 3 times a week, and try to do some cardio but have been slacking so far this summer 🙈. I walk my dogs for an hour or so every night and get about 20,000 steps per day.
I do have extra skin and I don't mind it. I worked hard for this body!
Please do not compare yourself. Everyone's body responds to weightloss differently and if you are doing everything you can, YOU ARE ENOUGH!
I get comments everyday about how you hope this is your year or you wish you could have these results. YOU CAN! Put in the work, stop making excuses. Find the right "diet" and research it, and make it a lifestyle. Change your mindset and your life will change. You didn't get to the weight you are over night and it won't come off overnight either. Make a plan and be consistent. And if you stumble, give yourself a hug and keep going. I know you can do it!
When i was at my biggest my problem was controlling my eating. I was never hungry in the morning but in the afternoon and at night time i was always hungry and would always eat a huge meal that contains alot of bad fats/carbohydrates. After my meal i would be playing video games or just laying down watching netflix being inactive.

Once i started watching what i eat and meal prepped i started feeling better about myself but i will always have those days that i would crave a burger, or a pizza. But, whenever i would be craving something like that instead of falling for it i drank lots of water so it can keep me full until my next meal.

Our past may explain why we’re suffering, but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage. So stop making excuses and do whatever is necessary to reach your goal🔥🔥💪🏼
Part 1 💫
One year today I had my gastric sleeve and I can’t believe it’s already been a year it’s gone so fast. This past year has been filled with so many highs and lows but has given me my life back. As soon as I hit puberty I started gaining weight even in grade six I was already bigger then all of the other girls while I didn’t get to my heaviest until after high school all the way through my high school years though I was still bigger then your “normal” size and was constantly bullied because of it. I was bullied so badly that I hated going to school it was such a struggle for my parents to get me to go because I didn’t want to spend another day dealing with it going through that it wasn’t until I moved schools that it got a lot better I don’t think people realise how much their actions and words effect others and stay with them long after it’s said. While I don’t think weight loss surgery is the answer for everyone I know I wouldn’t be where I am right now without it and I honestly don’t think I could’ve lost it all on my own. Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been trying to lose the weight I’ve tried everything but each time I stopped Id put even more weight back on then I started with. My whole teenage and adult life have been spent trying to lose weight and for the first time in my life I’m so close to being at a point where I won’t have any weight to lose and will just have to maintain it and I just can’t even believe that. Im now at the healthiest and fittest I have ever been! I’ve lost a total of 78.1kgs and 230cms and I’m 1kg off from losing half of my body weight. I’ve gone from wearing size 22-24 to fitting into size 10! I’m also so incredibly lucky that every single person in my life has been nothing but supportive since the begging and basically just dealt with sharing food with me haha 🙌🏽💪🏽👏🏽🙋🏼♀️ #weightlossjourney#wls#wlscommunity#wlstransformation#wlsjourney#wlsbeforeandafter#vsg#vsgjourney#vsgaustralia#gastricsleeve#gastricsleevesurgery#weightlosssurgery#beforeandafter#fitness
Sabrina talks about her first experience with #botox: “Let me be honest here, I’ve never even thought of having Botox before until recently. I had some lines on my forehead that were starting to bother me but was it worth the money to actually get injections?
Let me say the answer is YES!! The injections weren’t nearly as bad as I had imagined and the end result has been incredible! A HUGE thanks to my new employer for opening my eyes (and smoothing my forehead!) to something I thought was perhaps a waste of money.
Listen to me, your value and worth is NOT based on your physical appearance. However, if something bothers you and you want to do something about it... do 👏 not 👏 hesitate👏 I did this for me and I feel better about myself. This was a small price to pay for a huge self-esteem boost!” Thanks for sharing!

A perfect swing and aesthetics aren’t the goal. Cause and effect of what can be changed to make contact better, club head speed higher and the ball go farther and straighter. We added a little wrist hinge and that got the contact off the heel and into the middle of the face and a full club longer, in one swing. Results like these do not go away like a shriveled bandaid either.
And that’s how we were 4 years ago, back in Rio de Janeiro, ecstatic with our decision to kick up everything, quit our jobs, buy a boat, learn how to sail and travel the world... Four years later, half way around the world, we look a bit different, at least a lot more tanned, messy hair, a chubby boy 🐶 entered our lives to complete our family, and we continue as happy with our decision!! It was all worth it!! We can only be grateful and wish for many more years of #boatlife ! ••• 💦⛵️🙌🏽 ⛵️💦⛵️🙌🏽⛵️💦••• Há 4 anos atrás, lá no Rio, tomamos a decisão de chutar o balde, largar tudo, comprar um barco, aprender a velejar e viajar o mundo! Tá aí um antes e depois pra vocês verem o quanto éramos branquelos e arrumadinhos kkkk hoje em dia andamos mais descabelados, mais bronzeados, apareceu um gordinho pra completar a nossa família 🐶 mas a felicidade continua a mesma! Certeza de que tudo valeu a pena, só podemos agradecer e pedir por muitos mais anos dessa vida em alto mar. #sailipanema#celebration#lifechanges#followyourdreams
