My original post-surgery body goal was to be in a size 10 jeans at the largest, I wanted to drop down to about 155- 160 pounds
We were going to an engagement party and of course I wanted to be cute. It was the start of fall the weather was nice, why not?
The main thing I’ve noticed is how much I see myself now. Bariatric surgery has helped me so much, and I don’t mean just physically but emotionally and mentally.

These leggings would’ve made a cute outfit all by themselves. 😂 Don’t worry about that emoji…ya’ll just here for the transformation 😂 Mind ya business, I was in my basketball player zone 😂💀🏀 So crazy I was like 10pounds heavier in the photo on the left at the time I took this photo. 90pounds ⬇

12 months Update strength does not come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.
No matter what trials I go through I will always remain grateful that I had these moments to experience. These moments helped to create this amazingly beautiful woman I am learning about daily.
I have gone through trial and error with these items
e had a patient interview to discuss why I felt like I needed surgery?, what surgery did I think was the best option for me?, what did I plan to change and do different?, and what lifestyle changes I was going to make to ensure I had a successful surgery and post surgery experience
I can not believe I can actually say those words. And to be honest I didn’t think it was going to be that big of a deal. But who am I kidding?!🤔🤷🏽♀️ It’s freaking amazing.
I will never get tired of saying how happy I am that I choose to get bariatric surgery.

The past few months have been very trying. There are a lot of days that I forget my stomach is tiny
For the first time since surgery I have gained weight.
Follow up went great
Still totally in shock that this is even me. 70 pounds gone forever.
