Since its #RoyalWedding day πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ€£ #throwback to our wedding day! Even though I'm not a Princess, I felt like one πŸ‘‘ #agegap #sandals #sandalsemeraldbay #maydecember #agegaprelationship
Getting a picture with a toddler is damn near impossible πŸ˜‚ I used to be ashamed of bad body pics but honestly, they are just my Before pictures now 😁✌🏽 #before #wlsjourney #wls #rny #weightloss

Don't be fooled, this was all a bloat/stress loss πŸ˜‚ I haven't worked out in 2 weeks because of being sick and being so busy with appointments. I'm just really trying to watch what I eat and only eat when I'm truly hungry. Lemon water is really helping me with that, since I'm so used to drinking plain water only. I feel like I really have a chance being 280 by surgery πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ #wls #wlsjourney #rny #fat2fit #weightloss #weightlossjourney
And here we are, at Appointment #4 this week for me 😭 this is a 1.5 hour Support Group meeting for bariatric patients that are both pre op and post op. This week is seriously kicking my ass. So much so that I may just take a breather and ask for surgery in August instead of June πŸ˜ͺ #wlsjourney #wls #rny #bariatricsurgery #losingweight
Anyone else ever been on the verge of just vomiting everywhere because of stress? Yea thats my life right now 😭😭 #thistooshallpass
I've had several people message me during this bariatric surgery journey I'm on currently on. Their concern is always the same: they are embarrassed about getting surgery. They are glad that I'm open and honest about the surgery. I always tell them that their health is most important and it doesn't matter how you get healthy. I hope this post helps at least 1 person 😊 #wlsjourney #wls #rny #bariatricsurgery
I had my 2nd Nutrition Clinic appointment today and she suggested I cut out 98% of the processed foods to prepare me for surgery 😢 So I am making my meal prep list so I can really stick to it. Typically they want patients to see them 3 times and then the 4th time is right before surgery but she said we can skip the 3rd visit because my eating is pretty good most of the time, I just need to clean it up a bit. So I'm going to really get back on track starting next week (being sick and not grocery shopping really put a dent in my progress). So now, I'm just waiting for my sleep study results and my clearance from Psych then I'm all set! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ #rny #losingweight #fat2fit #weightloss #wlsjourney #wls
LOOK AT THIS GOOD NEWS!!!! LOOK AT IT !!!! 🀩🀩🀩🀩 #wlsjourney #wls #rny
370 vs 295 😎 I am extremely proud of my body after everything I've put it through. The picture on the right was taken Sunday and it's the first time in a long time I didnt hate a full body shot. No matter the road blocks I come across I'm still going to continue to push forward for my family and mostly myself ✌🏽❀ #losingweight #transformation #beforeandduring #wlsjourney #wlsjourney #extremeweightloss #rny
Yesterday I found out that I haven't gotten pulmonary clearance (from my sleep study that was done 4/20). I was told, after my sleep study, that someone would be in contact with me within a week or so to discuss results. I never heard from anyone so I assumed (my fault) that everything went well. Fast forward to almost a month later: I called yesterday to let the bariatric clinic know that this week is the last of my appointments. She tells me that I haven't gotten pulmonary clearance yet and to call them to go over my results. So I call and the girl tells me the earliest appointment to DISCUSS results is June 25. THAT means that if I need a CPAP machine for a month (which is standard) I won't have clearance til after those 30 days which means that my surgery won't be until at the earliest in August. When I say I'm pissed off, it's mostly being pissed off at myself for not following up. But I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason and there are things I just can't control πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ #rny #wlsjourney #wls #bariatricsurgery
True or false: food tastes different with the wrong utensil πŸ€” #forgotmyfork #losingweight #wlsjourney
This week is a busy one but the good news is this: after I go to all these appointments, my surgeon's office is going to submit to insurance to try and get an approval for surgery in June. I feel like I can FINALLY see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you guys could send the forces of the universe my way, I'd REALLY appreciate it ❀❀ #wlsjourney #wls #rny #bariatricsurgery #gastricbypass
So thankful to have my Grandma and Mom in n Grayson's life. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL THE MOMMAS ON IG!! Keep doin' ya damn thangggg 🀩😎 #mothersday2018
I am SOOO blessed to be his Momma ❀ I've never known love like this 😍 #mothersday2018 #myworld
Life is so busy right now that the house is a wreck and it doesn't even bother me 🀣 I finally got my appetite back and can't stop eating πŸ˜‹πŸ˜Ά this BEAUTIFUL beef jerky brought to you by @gibbsbutcherblock 😍 #beefjerky #sohungry #goodbyestomachbug
My cat thinks anything in a plastic container is cat treats lmao 🐱 HUGE shout out to @someday_a_saribay for suggesting Activated Charcoal capsules. In my entire almost-28 years of living I've never heard of this as a supplement for bloating, upset stomach, and gas. I feel the best I've felt in 9 days and I think that this, along with the pantoprazole my doctor prescribed me is helping tremendously. I've also taken 3 naps today 🀣🀣 never take your good health for granted. I'm so happy to be feeling better πŸ‘πŸ½πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ #charcoal
