Food Info⚠️ . I am almost 13 months post op and I’m still learning things about myself and this new tongue that I have. Okay, so this is typically how my mornings go especially when I’m on the run. I usually grab fruit and yogurt or coffee. This morning I decided to try a Nutri-Grain bar 🤢 . I stopped eating sugary and processed foods back in January 2020 in preparation for surgery. Every now and then I may have a popsicle or something but I’m more into savory things and such. I opened the package and tasted a crumb and gave it to my husband. 🙊 I CAN’T DO IT!
I’m not saying everyone will loose certain cravings and tastes for all things sugary. But for me it’s a no go. I opted for the banana and I was still only able to finish half of that. . Listen to your body folks….. your stomach will remind you later. . #vsgblogger #vsgfood #healthyeats #vsgjourney #vsg #vsglifestyle #breakfast #bariatriclife #gastricsleeve
OMG!! The daily weight loss struggles when you’re trying to be cute.
Even though boobage loss was explained…I didn’t think it would be this serious. 😂 Lately I’ve been experiencing what I like to call the “Cleavage Cave-In”. It’s the only way I can explain what is happening to my boobs. They literally look like they are collapsing inward.🤣 I can’t even tell you what size bra I currently wear. Everytime I go to buy a new one the struggles increase, within a few days time it doesn’t fit anymore and/or the support is gone.
I’ve never been a fan of bras but they have always been necessary due to how large my boobs use to be. I am one of those “can’t wait to get off work cause I’m taking my bra off as soon as I pull into the driveway type girls”, one of those “unclip the bra and let gravity take over” type of girls. I can’t really say if my problem with bras is naturally developed or if it’s just an annoyance because my boobs were always so heavy. Either way the struggle is real.
So the hubbs and I are in the room getting ready. As i’m trying to decide what look I want to wear for the day, I’m like “damn man I really need to order some new bras because my selection at the house is getting slimmer and slimmer”. Meanwhile the hubbs is like “baby just order them now, why do you keep pushing it off” and I simply replied “because I don’t see the point, I can still make some of the older bras work” 🤦🏽♀️ I go over to the mirror to see how much magic needs to be done and boom💥
“THE CLEAVAGE CAVE-IN”
At this point I was like 💭there ain’t no way I can fix this. Then it hit me👊🏽💡…STUFFERSSSSS!! Only thing is I never had to stuff a bra before🤷🏽♀️ so I don’t even know where to begin. Instantly I started thinking about what girl movies had I watched that taught me about bra stuffing? Now and Then was the only thing I could remember. I didn’t want to use pudding like Teeny (that could turn out messy😲 although hubbs would probably enojy that one🤔) I definitely didn’t want to tape them down like Roberta (skin too sensitive) So I just went with socks. I have hundreds of them so I started packing and stuffing.
Now, I hope the girls from back in the days who had to stuff their bras used way less pairs of socks then I did. I had 7 pairs of socks stuffed in my bra… ankle socks, footies, crew socks, and fluffy ones. The winter socks pushed up the best by the way just saying!🙋🏽♀️
Voila! Cleavage Cave filled in 😁. I took a selfie to see if it worked and it did, you can’t even tell can you? It was a very interesting process actually.
There was no way I was walking around with that many socks in my bra. As I started to unstuff, in walks my 17 year old with this question mark wrinkle on his forehead talking about ….”what are you doing? Why are you taking socks out of your bra?”🤔 and then he cracks up laughing. 🤦🏽♀️ #Teenagers
I was like …”listen don’t judge me, the struggles are real! I gotta make adjustments every now and then.” 😏
I took that bra off and into the donation box it went📦 I prefer comfort over look. I grabbed a minimizer 🤣💀
