You attract the energy that you give off. Spread good vibes. Think positively and enjoy life. I never thought fashion would be a thing for me. Especially after losing 95 pounds. But all I do is crave new style, new flare, new fabrics, and sex appeal since becoming this new me. This bawdy is giving…

Why did I end up getting VSG you ask? When I tell y’all I tried 90% of the weight loss fads that have been out🤣🤣🤣 I remember back in 2012, when the IT WORKS WRAPS were hot. I had a girlfriend that use to sell them, and I just so happen to be one of…
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. I watched his godmother transform from 400+ pounds to like 180 something over the course of a year and half. She has managed…
Date night is suppose to be exciting and full of fun. Thrilling to say the less for those who enjoy adventure. I have always been a little iffy about going on dates because… well it was always a struggle trying to find something to wear, or doing my hair, or trying to find comfortable shoes….
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 think it’s time to get rid of this 😛 Although it makes a very comfortable night shirt.
Let Your Light Shine so brightly that others can see their way out of the dark I want to be the best inspiration I can be to others on the same journey. It’s a challenging road to travel but I’m proof that you can do it. 12 months 3 weeks 3 days post #verticalsleevegastrecomy 270…

I have to remind myself… appreciate EVERYTHING THAT IS YOU
Scar Update After surgery YOU WILLL HAVE THEM. My procedure was laparoscopic, so I was left with 5 small puncture marks and 1 larger one (the hole they pulled the stomach through). When I came home I had bruising and everything. I had a stitch that did not dissolve so I pulled it out (with…
12 months Update strength does not come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.
Beautiful are those whose Brokeness gives birth to transformation and wisdom January 2019 vs February 2020 I remember this day like it was yesterday. These photos were the morning before surgery. We had just parked the car and was getting ready to walk towards the hospital doors when I looked at my husband and I…
“I stopped eating sugary and processed foods back in January 2020 in preparation for surgery.” 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…
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.
91 pounds gone in a year. Hard work, dedication, motivation. Is all it took💪🏽
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.

In less than 24 hrs🕥 I will be finishing the last chapter in one book. And starting a new beginning in another
LIFE! That’s what happened. For 10 years I struggled with my weight.

For the past 9 years I have hated the camera
For the first time since surgery I have gained weight.
