Exactly one year ago today I went to my very first doctors appt to talk to my surgeon about weight loss surgery.
At that time I was broken, I was tired, I was depressed all the time, I was just not happy. I was truly crumbling and collapsing - And I knew I had to do something to change.
I never could have dreamed at that time that this journey would take me this far. I didn't even know if surgery would work for me or if I would meet the requirements to get it. I just knew something had to change.
And now a year later I am at a place I never imagined I would be.
I'm 120 pounds down and living my best life. I can do things I haven't been able to do for years. I no longer worry about my weight holding me back from doing the things I love. And I am just all around a happier and healthier person.
Yes...I’m basic and
We all know pumpkin spice anything is the fall basic but now that it’s winter, yes! It’s winter! It’s bleepin cold outside, I need to get my winter basic girl drink on!
Before, I’d go see my gurl Star Bucks for a Peppermint Mocha, but her drink was a little too high in EVERYTHING for me
So I just mixed up some Peppermint Bark Level 1 and Milk Chocolate Level 1 and
I can have my drink and not do a million hours of cardio!
And I love that it’s two birds one stone drink..
I get my Peppermint Mocha fix and it’s a full meal replacement drink! And yes.... coffee is a meal dang it!
I’ll hair flip and sparkle to that! (That was so cheesy Bellah... seriously... get yah life)
Haha anyway! Full instructions are in my highlights! 👆🏾👆🏾👆🏾
#wlscommunity I was wondering when you all started back exercising and what kind of things have you done to help with loose skin?? Thank you xoxox (It’s on my story too, so sorry if you’ve already seen that!!) •
Getting pink cheeks from the sun. I’m on a three week vacation to the North West Africa. To Canary Islands that are to a frozen Swede as the Caribbean is for a frozen Canadian/American. I’m at a very nice hotel with lots of old people who go on long walks, explore the countryside, cycle, etc leaving the hotel empty during daytime. Fits me PERFECTLY!
I’m working on keeping my energy levels up. By thinking positively and actively saying yes to things like a walk instead of saying no... My big regain is bothering me. I’m fighting feelings of failure, disgust, and my positive body image is very difficult to maintain. At the same time I’m fully understanding that creating a positive body image takes time and effort! One obstacle def are my clothes (all tight and unconfortable as hell). The world needs more clothes in beautiful colours and patterns that STRECH to accomodate weight gain and weightloss! #weightloss#rny#rnyfamily#rnycommunity#wls#wlsfamily#wls#gastricbypasssverige#gastricbypass#weightgain#regainingweight#clothesproblems#strechyclothes#fashion#notafashionblogger#clothesdesigner#designer
