This is my go to morning tea at the moment. (No I don’t eat the whole punnet) cashews and strawberries 🍓
(SWIPE)HAPPY SURGIVERSARY to me six months and I am on it...I have shared the blessing of LIFE and how I came to moving wait and weights...I was literally dying and my doctor let me know..."You're going to die, if we don't do something about your weight!"...that was my introduction to my new doctor. My Blood Pressure was out of control...my Diabetes was in the 400-600s daily...my Cholesterol was bad...my Sleep Apnea and PCOS were giving me the blues, literally...I was depressed and depressing...but GOD, we got up and @revdreldermin_bd
decided to do something about it...for us both, I tried everything but wanting to have surgery...I like my store house stacked and this was going to cost us...but then I had the revelation on the value of my life and I was determined to live...I had the VSG and learned weight lost surgery was not the miracle...I thought everything pertaining to it would be...it was a new method of daily commmitments and dedications...and I was obsessed with it...six months of reading, learning, and more researching, gaining great mentors and trainers and working out harder than I ever have in my life...gaining respects yet; completely opposed to body shaming in any form...being the biggest fattest, advocate for changed lives to your better...six months of having the support of my amazing family and friends and the joy of knowing I was blessed to do this for a greater Lisa-Marie...THAT IS #MovingWait_Weight
.s...we are movingwait_weight.s...for the future...doing it now...for life...no waiting...for validations, commmitments, loyalties, situations, or circumstances...no more being weighted down......living by and on GOD's WILL...and no more waiting to die to really live...I am not waiting to see the wisdom of the blessing of life any longer...OUR HEALTH IS OUR WEALTH, and WE ARE GIVING OUR ALL TO LIVE!!!

BUT, that’s the devil talking. We got this guys, we gonna kill it 🔥♥️. Let’s motivate, encourage, and push each other. No hate, no negativity, or jealousy here🙅🏻♀️ Who’s with me? 🤗 let’s all be friends 😘
Transformation Tuesday.... it’s another comparison photo 2 years difference. I can’t think of anything insightful to say. So I’ll leave you with the picture.
80 day obsession day 1 is not a joke!
Let's say it a little louder for the ones in the back!! Let me do me!! Gettin it!!
P r o g r e s s ✨ 156lbs⤵️. Yes, I know I’m still fat, but you know what? I’ve been able to do, wear, and achieve things I could never even imagine doing a year ago and for that I’m so damn proud of myself. Life is too short so be happy and most of all LOVE YOURSELF! ♥️
A little late on my week 8 update. Monday is my 2 month surgiversary! Every day is another day I am thankful for this tool. It has made such a difference in my life. Took this pic while hiking in #wissahickoncreek
. We worked up some sweet and red faces all before noon. In fact, this week has been all about sweating and moving more. Went from averaging 15.2 miles per week to 24.1. Feels great. .
Hit a stall earlier last week and been losing and gaining the same .2 lbs like a pro. Sorta broke it this morning I think? We'll see. Still 62lbs down.
What I am struggling with is "seeing it". Yes, I bought a pair of jeans in a size I haven't worn since college but I don't SEE it when I look in the mirror. Weird how the mind plays tricks. I regret not taking good before pics. Take those. They are important. .

When someone asked do you wanna come over for corn meat and veg. You don’t say no. #sundayroast #yummo
Back fat, stretch marks, and gains💪
I’m very lucky that my back boobs retracted pretty quickly, but I don’t have any pre op photos for comparison (I would have rather died), so you’ll have to take my word for it when I tell you there’s a big difference.
I do have loose skin on my back, but nothing extreme like on my stomach and legs.
Obviously there’s still work to be done, but I’m not lifting weights yet, so all things considered, I’m happy with how this is traveling along.
