Update: 270 193

I don’t even know where to begin….here’s the latest update. I am down 77lbs! It’s so crazy because I haven’t seen this weight in about 11 years. It’s been 7 months. I am over the top proud of myself. Learning patience while achieving these goals takes so much discipline.

And I am here for it. I am my own goals!!

I am so very proud of myself for sticking through with my decision to get a VSG. Clearly I wasn’t excited about this outfit last year. But I’m feeling better about it now. I am 44lbs down from my highest weight and couldn’t feel better. I am just shy of my first major weight loss goal. Next step Onederland!!

November 9, 2020

Like Nicki Minaj & Beyoncé said “I’m feeling myself, I’m feeling myself” I don’t think I’ve ever spent so much time taking pictures of myself. For the past 9 years I have hated the camera. I always found a flaw no matter how gorgeous I was. I was always so hard and down on myself. My VSG surgery saved me.
This experience  has helped me find myself again.

For the past 9 years i have hated the camera….

I am so totally in love with the woman I see in the mirror everyday. Every single part. My mirror and I have a great relationship now. My #mirrorselfie game is on point.
I finally jumped on the fashion nova wagon. My closet was kind of empty after throwing out almost all of my old clothes. I’ve dropped 3/4 sizes depending on the outfit. I started this journey in a 2x scrub, 1x clothes and big ass bra. (I’m sorry)(not really). I’m now down to a size S/M in everything.


Moving to GA has given me a reason to get seasonal clothes so I stocked up. I was crazy excited about my first fashion nova haul. I treated myself to a very much needed backyard photoshoot. I got so many compliments on both my outfit and makeup which I did myself. So I decided to spread my happiness and my love for life down ya timeline.

I lost focus and regained 5 lbs

These past few weeks have been  crazy. For the first time since surgery I have gained I lost focus and regained 5lbs.

For the first time since surgery I have gained

Forgive me for the lack of updates.

Refocusing has been my main goal. I have 3 more pounds to lose to get back on track. These are my weekly lost files from the past few weeks. ***** Although I haven’t posted, I still keep track because ACCOUNTABILITY is a big thing for me.

I want to be transparent throughout my transformation because I know others are going through things as well. It’s hard….but I know what I have to do. This is something I wanted and I will achieve this goal!!

the Doctor said “You look great”

My follow up went great. I was finally able to get the dressings off! I was crazy happy about that. It was so annoying wrapping myself in plastic everynight before taking a shower. The Doctor said I looked great, and I can start testing out soft foods to see how I tolerate them. Down15lbs since surgery.

70 POUNDS GONE. What a difference 1 year makes

1 year difference!!

This photo on the left was July 4th. I swear it still feels like yesterday. This has always been one of my favorite bathing suits and now I love it even more. It always covered everything perfectly and was still cute.

I am in shock every time I do these before and after shots. So grateful I made the decision to change my life.
