Day 3 post op! It’s getting a little easier every day! I’m starting to stand a little straighter and am becoming a little more mobile. I showered yesterday but I was kinda scared so I rushed it. Overall, I’m feeling good! Most of the discomfort is in my lower abdomen area and I’m feeling itchy around my incision and my sides. Reiterating what I had done: 420cc breast implants, tummy tuck with muscle repair and liposuction.
Im glad I can still enjoy my treats. The coconut delight sugar free chocolate from SweetWilliam is the best i can have at the moment. Chocolate is the one thing I had to have everyday. I couldnt survive without it. Since surgery my sweet tooth craving have settled but I still need the sweet stuff. Lindt will always be my favourite though.
Been feeling cooped up lately with being sick for the last week and been mostly in bed. So we decided to get out and go for a quick walk before school pick up and the twins love to stop at this spot and throw stuff in the water and today we had 3 vert curious black swans coming over for a closer look 💜
Some of you may have seen my story and the rough mental breakdown I had, well I had to go do something for me and went and bought this panda tank, a new pair of goal jeans, goal leggings(for next winter because they are fleece), and leggings for now😌. First off, who can’t be happy wearing cute adorable pandas? (Especially with that cute pandas booty) Second, this tank is a size medium!!! 😱 This is going to be my new fav tank this spring/summer/fall so if you see me wearing it daily, no judgement, because I pre warned ya 😉!
In my younger days, I hated running. My dad would use it as a punishment when I’d get in trouble. He’d make me jog/walk with him & lecture me the whole time. I know he meant no harm, in reality he was trying to help me be active but I HATED it. Why in the world would I voluntarily choose to run NOW? Surprisingly I enjoy running. Something about not dragging 100lbs makes it a lil easier (sarcasm). Running helps clear my mind & pushes me to challenge myself, to go further + faster. Last time I attempted to do this trail - years ago - I legit started crying and gave up not even a mile in. Today, I didn’t do the whole trail... but I ran 5 whole miles in 50 minutes without stopping. This is kinda a big deal for me!!!!! Not gonna lie, I struggled a bit with the inclines as the sun was beaming against my face making it hard to see the finish line (where I started). Some day I’ll finish the trail, but for what I was able to do today, I’m proud as FUCK.
Sooooo I am now at 182 pounds. This is such a drastic difference for me and I am honestly struggling just a pinch with feeling good about the way I look. I still gravitate towards the plus size section and get all flustered and walk away. Thankfully, I went shopping with my twin sis @stacer112 and then my little sis @heatherdille which has made shopping a little less painful lately. This is why I take progress pictures constantly so I can always remind myself where I have been, where I am going, and where I want to be in this weight loss journey. I am down from a snug size 20/22 to size 10 in jeans. I am down from a 3xl shirt to a large. 😱😬 I honestly cannot remember the last time I was in a size 10 pant. Like, maybe elementary school. So I am chugging along to my next goal which is 150. My first goal was to be 200. Then I set a new goal! Baby steps....baby steps. I would not be able to do this without the support of my amazing workout and lifting partner for life-my hubby @clos_art_1984, the amazing support of my family, friends, and Co-workers. And God....because without Him none of this would be possible! So onward and upward!!!! On to the next..... #wlscommunity#wlsjourney#vsg#gastricsleeve#shoppingisstillstressful
REDEMPTION. I've always loved to hike but it became damn near impossible to keep up over the past few years. HALF way to my goal- You best believe I enjoyed yesterday's lil adventure; the first of many this year! 😁
Yay ! Had my consult with Dr David Scott today and I'm all booked in! So many emotions I'm so excited but nervous😅 I can't imagine what I'll be like on the actual day of surgery. Ya girl will keep y'all updated that's for sure!
#mcm This guy puts up with so much shit from me and he just laughs through most of it. Today was The. Fucking. Worst. I overslept, didnt work out, cut my finger. Twice. Jammed my thumb, took my daughter to dinner and the waitress messed up my order, then the kitchen just put some spinach and bacon on top of it and sent it back cold. This time bacon did not make it better. I still haven't eaten because it's too late. But I was scrolling through pictures and found this. Then I remembered how #blessed I am and quit bitching. He always makes it better, even when he isnt here.
Not a surprise really as when you follow something calculated to you your goals and get more consistency in any of you will see change in weeks.
Shot Des mate and thank you for your journey with me.
