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.
Happy #transformationthursday CAN YOU SEE IT (yes I’m tooting my own horn) I LOVE LOVE LOVE my progress. I hit my 3 month mark yesterday an boy let me tell you. I AM SO HAPPPYYYYYY!! 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!!
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.
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. #motivationmonday
These past few weeks have been crazy. For the first time since surgery I have gained I lost focus and regained 5lbs.
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!!
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.
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.
