Red as a tomato but so freaking proud! Ran 4 miles today! Pushed myself. 2 days ago I ran 2.5 miles. I swear I can’t even tell you when was the last time I ran 4 miles. Probably before November of 2018. I am scared to death of regain and these 5lbs are really making me re-think. I need to start pushing myself again. I cannot let these 5lbs turn into 10 lbs and so on.... need to get back on track and boob surgery is really motivating me! I want to be in the best shape possible going into surgery!!! I have 4 weeks to burn these 5lbs off!!!! #running#vsg#lowbmivsg#bariatricsurgery#plasticsurgery#sleevesurgery#bariatricsleeve#runner#slowandsteady
I just wanted to take a min to say thank you to this friend but also bring this subject up. I am all about everyone having their own weight loss journey but I’m extremely sad that people are not being honest or realistic about how they are losing MASS amounts of weight in a few months. Maybe some are embarrassed or they’ve heard “it’s the easy way out” but it’s giving a false image and hope for struggling women out there. Sure you can lose a 100lbs without surgery but it would literally take a year or more of down right struggle! It is absolutely impossible to lose that in less time trust me I starved myself almost to death as a teen. I hope my journey helps at least 1 person or 1 person gets the courage to ask surgery questions because they are scared. Lady’s live your life, be healthy but more importantly be honest and open and uplift one another for the process! #sleevesurgery#dothesurgery#livehealthier
Hhheeeyyyy Fam !!!!
ThX for the support!!!
Sooty for the delay!
Ok so yes we made it !!!! To meat day!!!! Tuesday made 2 weeks POST OP ( sorry - I said post pardom 🥰😂😂😂😂😂😂AINT NO BODY PREGO .... YET🤷🏽♀️) I had no problem with eating!
I find it easer to eat with a baby fork so I don’t take more to avoid problems. I had very mild ingestion but that was cuz my geeedy self put ate too much at once- hence the baby fork.
for drinking!!!! PLEASE!!!! Sip VERY SMALL AMOUNT FIRST!
I had to learn this the hard way. And per my nutritionist—- limit juice intake to / cups a day!!!
Well that’s all for now !!!!
My breakfast today. One egg omelette with turkey sausage and Icelandic yoghurt with apple slices. I whipped the egg whites first and folded the yolk in to make the omelette fluffier. Bad idea though, because now my stomach can’t fit the yoghurt in 🤦🏻♀️. My eye are still to big for my stomach and it’s been seven months since my surgery. This breakfast came out to 230ish calories. If I actually finish the yoghurt. 😂 #weightlossjourney#breakfast#omelette#vsgfood#wlsfood#healthybreakfast#vsg#wls#weightloss#sleevesurgery
These photos are bittersweet for me. My daughter, who’s 7, isn’t getting any younger. These were taken in August of 2018 in my absolute favorite place in the world, St. John, USVI. I’ve been traveling there since I was 4 years old. These are only 3 of the maybe 5 photos I took with my daughter and family. 😢 I cringe when I look at these. It reminds me how I wanted to relax and unwind, but I was so focused on how my weight was holding me back. From the plane ride, to riding in our crowded Jeep, to the pictures we were supposed to take, to the limited activities I could do, the struggle walking in the sand, etc. I want to take 100 pictures with my daughter and family. I don’t want to worry about my arm crowding the aisle of the plane. I want to hike the trails and ruins in the VI National Park. I want to snorkel for an hour at a time. I want to be carefree and pain free!! I will always cherish this trip, but I’m looking forward to it in the future with a different body - one that’s healthy and strong! I will always have wanderlust in my heart. ✈️ 🌎 🧭 ☮️ #vsg#vsgjourney#vsgsupport#vsgsurgery#vsgfamily#vsgcommunity#wls#wlscommunity#wlssupport#wlsfamily#weightlossjourney#weightloss#wanderlust#stjohnusvi#stjohn#sleevesurgery#verticalsleeve#verticalsleevegastrectomy
So I’ve debated mentioning that I am having surgery but after weeks of looking at other people’s pages who have had the surgery for inspiration I have decided to share my journey as well. I hit my highest weight a couple months ago and decided I wasn’t going to live the rest of my life over weight and unhappy. I’ve used food as a crutch for many years to get me through tough times and I have decided to get back ahold of my life. I have already started my journey and I will have my surgery Tuesday April 30, 2019. I started my pre-op diet on Tuesday and let me tell you this is the hardest thing I have ever done but I have lost 🎉7 pounds🎉 I can’t wait to see what the future holds and drop this weight! .
