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

Of the various options for weight loss surgery, I chose to undergo the Sleeve Gastrectomy. I first heard about weight loss surgery after the birth of my oldest son back in 2004.

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.
“Every new day is another chance to change your life” Stretchy clothes are the worst when it comes to before and afters but you get the point It’s hard to even recognize the old me sometimes. But, I know she previously existed💗

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.
Only thing is, I never had to stuff a bra before.
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.
***transformation tuesday*** This scale and I have battled for a very long time. But I think we’re finally becoming friends.
