  1. In an effort to embrace reality and with a healthy dose of encouragement from “Shrill”, I decided I’m wearing a bikini this summer. Stretch marks, scars, loose skin and all. All of these bathing suits are at Target. I bought the red one in a smaller size. STATS: I’m 202lbs. I’m 7 months post gastric bypass and I’ve lost 119 lbs. My goal weight is 145. Yes, I plan to have plastic surgery down the road but that won’t fix my brain so I’ve been working on that for now. Don’t leave me hanging -- PLEASE POST YOUR BATHING SUIT OPTIONS FOR SUMMER!

    New Episodes of Bariatric Strong

    Michael, I just started following your channel and I like what I see! I, too, am building a new life through fitness (I'm 14 months post gastric bypass) I'm currently in school to become a personal trainer and I graduate in March. I just trained my 1st client this weekend. I'd be super-interested in picking your brain about a few things if you're interested. Please pm me if that's something you might have time for. Either way, keep up the great work, power-lifting looks like a blast!

    That soundz amazing! Thank you for going over the details, especially the nutrition; super helpful. I had never considered training for a triathlon but I just might do that.

    Triathlon done!!!!! Woo hoo!

    Aaaaah! This is so fantastic. Very, very cool. What was your training regimen like to prepare for this? So curious about all the different types of training people are doing!

    Power lifters, bodybuilders, strength trainers, OCR runners!!!

    Yes! This is what I'm looking for!!!! I'm 14 mo post op, just started school for personal training. It's a 450 hour program that is kicking my butt and I'm loving it ❤️ Well, maybe not some of the 2-a-day workouts, ha! Feeling strong today, still dropping sizes like crazy and building tons of muscle mass. I love challenging myself and seeing what my new body can do. Looking forward to teaching clients how to change their life through fitness in a body positive way regardless of where they are starting. Us pre &post op peeps need representation! Love seeing everyone's ideas! Great thread!

    Butt flap - Anyone have?

    Yes, I also have this butt flap and am finding good luck reducing it with exercise. I don't mind it terribly but I'm on a muscle building track and have noticed it getting less obvious. My darling daughter "brought it to my attention" this summer by pinching it and asking me what it was🤦‍♀️😄 A variety of squats will strengthen and tone the area but don't underestimate the power of focusing on the hamstrings as well. There are so many sites to get exercise ideas but I really like muscleandstrength.com because I'm a stickler for focusing on form!
  7. Wow! It sounds like you have had some real personal growth over the last several months of this journey. I'd love to see you congratulate yourself for all that hard work. ❤️ None of it is easy but the mental toughness it takes to get through is by far more difficult than the physical. You are on the right track!
  8. Hi! I'm currently 14 mo post op. Starting weight: 321 3mo post op: 246 6mo post op Currently 180. But I'm in personal trainer school, working out 8-10 times a week and packing on some muscle. Ive gone down 2 sizes without losing a single pound. Don't forget how important those other stats and progress pics are! I'm so excited for you!!!❤

    UPDATE I'm actually wearing my suit in public. I was embarrassed the first couple of times but now, I'm good. If anyone wants to silently judge my body from afar, they can go for it. I know what it's been through and I know what it can do. That's all the confidence I need. Have an amazing summer! We ALL deserve it no matter what our bodies look like 🤗

    Wow! These suits look great on you. I love all of them. The black one is really cool but I'm also really liking the shorts. They look cute and sporty! I might get one like that this summer, too!

    This is the only one I've seen. It's made locally and I first tried it at the farmer's market. They now have it in some local grocery stores here in Portland and you can buy it online. But, small batch nut butters are really popular right now. I wouldn't be surprised if there was someone making something similar close by. If you have access to a specialty grocery store, check it out! If not, exploring all the fun grocery options can go on your agenda for your next trip to a larger city. I used to live in the boonies and liked to stock up on interesting groceries and spices while in town. Food tourist!

    Food Before and After Photos

    Been working on my mini-meal game to keep me out of the fridge during non meal times. I'm working out harder and I'm SO HANGRY! So I have 6:30am protein coffee, 10am lunch, 1pm snack, 2pm coffee before picking up kids, 4pm dinner, 6pm snack. Wow. I feel so much better! Weight loss is picking up again too! Anyway 1 pm snacks are fresh veggies (celery & snap peas) + 1 strawberry + cheese + olives or pepperocinis 6pm snack is veggies and a treat. Treats are 1 mini protein cookie (serv size is 4) OR 1/3 protein bar OR 1/2 slice crispbread with almond/coconut butter

    Sure! 4 cloves garlic 3 t ginger paste ⅓ c Rice wine Vinegar ½ c soy sauce ¼ c sesame oil 2-3T tahini (you can sub peanut butter here) Add sweetener to taste: liquid Splenda or swerve Before adding sweetener, blend all ingredients in food processor. Then slowly add sweetener to taste. It's really tasty without the sweetener as well!

    ❤MARCH 2019 CHALLENGE❤

    The only people in my life who see the real me are my husband and my mom. I don't have any close friends-had a recent friend breakup which was good for me. I hadn't realized how time consuming and isolating that relationship was. But now I find myself a bit untethered and I don't think I know how to make friends? I'm thinking about taking a class I'm interested in or maybe approaching other parents at my kids' school. Some combo of body insecurity and resting B-face is holding me back. I know I'm always smiling in photos I post but this is my regular face:

    ❤MARCH 2019 CHALLENGE❤

    Lots of happy childhood memories running rampant outdoors with my two little sisters and our dog. East Texas in the 80s! Also, my favorite perfume is Chloe Nomade. So expensive I can only buy the tiny bottles but I love it so it's worth it. It's the perfume that finally got me to switch from my old stand by, Chanel Allure. I feel like a new woman when I wear it
