VSG Update

Advertisements

These before and after photos make me smile! This is the true motivation….I take photos to document because most days I don’t see a difference. But when I put on something that I’ve snapped a photo in and compare the two I am so proud of myself everyday for making the decision to get my VSG.

2019 taught me self love is the best love

In less than 24 hrs I will be finishing the last chapter in one book. And starting a new beginning in another. I have always had a love hate relationship with this body of mine. 2019 taught me self love is the best love. 2019 is the year I decided to start over. Reset….begin a new step forward with nothing but positivity and confidence.

I can point out a million things wrong in every one of these photos but I won’t. This is me saying goodbye to old ways, negative energy and every hurtful thing attached to the person in these photos. I hid a lot of pain behind the smiles but I found new reason to want to do better. New reason to want to smile more, be healthier, and live the best life I possibly can.

I hid a lot of pain behind the smiles…


2020 is my reset and I plan to make it all worth it. This is my first transformation Tuesday of many to come. Hope you enjoy this ride as much as I will

“SELF LOVE, SELF CARE, ME…. That was enough Motivation.”

MO.TI.VA.TION

The reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.

the general desire or willingness of someone to do something


Don’t ever let anyone make you feel any type of way because you chose to accept a tool that helps to change your life.
You get one body and one life!!
Looking at this I feel nothing but accomplishment. I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF.
Shame for what, embarrassed for what. LIFE! That’s what happened. For 10 years I struggled with my weight. Not all my life….but 10 years of it and that was enough.

shame for what?EMBARRASSED for what? Life! that’s what happened

2019 sparked a change in ME that I will never forget. I decided then that I would give into my own self doubts and help myself.
Body aches, daily pain, blood pressure issues, confidence problems, fatigue, stress, depression, the list goes on. These were some of my reasons to get #VSG
SELF LOVE, SELF CARE, ME…. that was motivation enough.
So Cheers to all of you who have had the opportunity to have VSG surgery and cheers to you all awaiting the date. It is never too late to choose you.


I AM MY FAVORITE PERSON NOW. I AM MY OWN GOALS, I AM MY OWN SUNSHINE. I LOVE ME SOME ME That is motivation enough.

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.
