  2. 1 year anniversary from the start of my journey. My very first apt with my surgeon. At my highest weight. And then now, post op 5 1/2 months. Life feels amazing and everything has changed. couldn't feel better! Down 100 lbs!!!! Seems crazy.....

      Congrats. I am closing week 4 tomorrow. Not sure if i hit a stall or the scale hasn't moved because i haven't been able to produce a BM since Friday (today is Wednesday) and this Friday marks 30 days since my last cycle and i am anxiously waiting LOL.. Something has to give!!! Somewhere!

      I was hoping to see the scale move this past week but it was exactly the same. For the rest of that day it really messed with my head and made me feel all sorts of emotions. But didn't stop me still hitting the gym daily and sticking to what I know to do.

      I thankfully haven't had issues with BM's. When I was drinking protein shakes I had horrible issues but now that I take all my protein in through my food and homemade protein shakes that my surgeon told me about I don't have any issues. That really sucks you have to deal with that. Really not a good time.

  6. Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

      I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...


  7. Addicted to that gym life... LOL

    Idk why before I didn't want to go but now OMG best feeling ever.

  8. 2 days post op. I'm doing great!

  9. Two days left. Tomorrow is clear liquids then Wednesday is the day. Going to be doing pictures tomorrow and making a couple new videos for my youtube channel. Then prep for when I come home. If your curious as to what I have bought to prepare and take to hospital and what I am doing to prep coming home check it out.


    Fat 2 Fab is my channel. See ya over there.

  10. Day 3 pre-op diet. Finally past the head hunger games. OMG that was kind of rough. But glad that it  is gone. Not even feeling hungry today. I got my breakfast protein shake down but other than that not feeling like I need anything else.

  11. Pre-Op started today......

  12. I AM APPROVED!!!!!!!


    S$%* JUST GOT REAL!!
