Nakon što je shvatila da nešto mora da uradi povodom svoje težine jer u suprotnom neće živeti još dugo, pokušala je da skine kilograme samostalno. Uvidevši da joj je neophodna pomoć, odlučila se za barijatrijsku intervenciju prilikom koje joj je hirurški umanjen želudac.

I know you’ve heard this before, but the only limit is yourself. The single greatest aspect of this journey is the opportunity to continuously challenge yourself. So instead of setting limits, set challenges. 👊🏼 __ Prior to beginning my fitness journey, I had never run a mile. I didn’t grow up with any type of athletic or sports background. I had lived a sedentary lifestyle, afraid to leave my comfort zone. But 15 months ago, I began training. And in 15 months, I have completely transformed my body and my abilities. 💪🏼 __ Yesterday I ran my fastest timed mile to date, 7:35. You better believe I ugly cried tears of pride right there on that treadmill. It might seem like a small achievement to some, but this was a defining moment for me. I have consistently worked at pushing past my boundaries, and I have consistently proven myself wrong by accomplishing these physical feats I once believed to be impossible. I know with certainty that there is no limit to what I can accomplish. So isn’t it time that you step out of your comfort zone and discover all that you can achieve? 🙌🏼 __ #projectrock #bendboundariescollection #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlossjourney #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #fattofit #beastmode #beforeandafter #bodytransformation #bodybuilding #gymmotivation #workoutmotivation #weighttraining #weightlifting #flex #fatloss #musclegain #progress #wls #vsg #bariatricsurgery

Međutim, Sara je znala da je to samo početak, i da dalje sve zavisi od njene odlučnosti i volje. I zato je drastično izmenila svoj jelovnik.

Pomno bira namirnice, izbegava bilo šta fabrički obrađeno, broji kalorije i vežba šest puta nedeljno – jedan trening je trening snage, a sledeći je kardio.

Sliding through with a neck appreciation post on this #motivationmonday, lol. The pictures on the left are from summer 2011. As you can clearly see, I now have excess skin on my neck. I love my little wattle though. I would much rather have my turkey neck than no neck at all. 😉 ▪︎▪︎▪︎ Keep in mind, there is no way to spot reduce fat on your face. There are no exercises (that I know of) to help tone or define your neck, lol. Overall fat loss just comes from being in a caloric deficit. Some parts of your body will progress faster than other parts… that is normal. Stay consistent on your journey and you will begin to notice the changes occurring all over! 👍🏻 ▪︎▪︎▪︎ #gobblegobble #glowup #facetoface #looseskin #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #extremeweightloss #weighttraining #bodybuilding #fatloss #diet #nutrition  #workoutmotivation #gymmotivation #health #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitmom #fattofit #beforeandafter #progress #wls #vsg #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve

Ovim režimom uspela je da skine preko 80 kilograma.

Danas, Sara ima 68 kilograma i vrlo posećen Instagram blog gde sa pratiocima deli svoje treninge i plan ishrane.

#MotivationMonday! 22 months of progress post bariatric surgery. Let me just state, it feels good to genuinely FEEL GOOD. 💪🏼 ▪︎▪︎▪︎ Having bariatric surgery does not guarantee results. EFFORT is still required to achieve CHANGE. If you want to transform your health, you have to be willing to put in work. So isn’t it time you work towards feeling good too? 🖤 ▪︎▪︎▪︎ Side note before anyone asks: NO I have not had any excess skin removal surgery, YES I have excess skin.👍🏼 ▪︎▪︎▪︎ #ignoremytan #iknowitsbad #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #extremeweightloss #bodytransformation #weighttraining #lifting #bodybuilding #muscle #fatloss #nutrition #exercise #diet #workoutmotivation #gymmotivation #healthylifestyle #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitmom #fattofit #beforeandafter #progress #wls #vsg #bariatricsurgery #gastricsleeve

Kako kaže, svojim fotografijama i pričom želi da motiviše druge i dokaže im da baš ništa nije nemoguće – samo ako imate volje.
