Post birthday selfie. My purple hair washed out, but hopefully I'm getting it back soon. I have not taken a selfie in forever. I'm feeling optimistic as I come close to my VSG 4 year anniversary. More to come on that! #vsgreflections
Yesterday was the last of birthday week celebration. I had 🍕🍺so calories was about 1,800+. But I did have more than 20,000 steps yesterday, so it helped the number on the scale stay the same as last week. I'll be back on track full time starting now. I want to get into the 230s! #backontrack#trackeverything
So yesterday was weigh in day, after a week trying the Keto Diet, and I'm down 6.8 lbs! 😱 I had really been struggling to break this plateau and the eating modifications seemed weird to me but I gave in and tried it. I think I could seriously do this way of eating long term. It's not hard at all. Especially when my 💙 @a_villain83 is by my side, doing it with me. My goal weight is 150 before my plastics in September, so let's do this! 💯✅ #keto#ketogenic#ketogenicdiet#ketodiet#Ketosis
A few of my favorite things 💙
This Saturday morning started with step aerobics class (yes!) followed by this delish #matcha latte at a local juice kitchen. There I also picked up some Rabbit nitro cold brew to help me study all afternoon. I hope everyone has a productive & healthy Saturday!
I will never forget where I came from. This was the summer before I had surgery. When I got the pics from our vacation I was like it's a wrap. Surgery is a done deal. There was nothing changing my mind. I had been dancing with the idea for 10 years but delayed the process.
I started the process with insurance requirements in August 2009 and had surgery December 23,2009. The day of I was 385. I've lost the weight. Gained some back and now I'm on track. I've accepted the lifestyle. I still mourn that food indulgence life sometimes. Damn it was fun!! 😜But I know the happiness from food is a facade. A facade that masks another hidden pain.
Thank you life for making me stronger. Thank you life for showing me my purpose.
If you're new in this journey, you will become frustrated. You will compare your distance traveled with someone else's. Stop. This is your history to write. Not anyone else's. Be the artist of your own masterpiece. You will cry. You will question your decision. It's a part of the process. Understand your why. Be clear on your why. And commit to it. Just take it one day at a time.
