Internal battles are among the hardest to face. Especially as I’m learning to change and evolve to use other mechanisms to cope instead of food.. yet food is so easy-it’s almost comforting-I need to kick this way of thinking/feeling and for the last year I thought I had. It’s hard when you have so much happening around you so fast you feel like your spinning and just wish you could pause time to just.. breathe—*sigh* I’ve lost sight of who I am, who I want to be and what direction I’m going. I’m discouraged that I allowed myself to fall into old habits, and falling into a depression. Yet maintaining happiness and a smile around everyone around me, especially my children I always give them my all, they keep me grounded and are my world. it’s a blanketed black hole that seems hard to find that light or even internal spark, I thought it was there but depression is like cinderblocks tied to my ankles and I’m falling into the deepest part of the ocean.. I didn’t want to be the statistic I wanted to prove to myself I could finally win at this shit.. I hate picking myself apart why am I so fucking critical of myself? 😩😭 I’m trying, I still have hope but in keeping with how I’ve always ran this app-here’s real, here’s vulnerable, here’s to anyone else in my same shoes ❤️ I did find out that my sleeve is shaped like a bent s with my already rather large 40fr bougie I gotta Work that much harder, then account for and throw in pcos and depression.. it’s not gonna be easy but I know how fucking string I am.. I can find my spark once again, I can start going to the gym again.. idk what I need I have been trying to pull myself out of this funk this depression but it’s fucking hard. This chapter won’t define me.. the only thing I want to regain is my momentum! 🙏🏼#wlscommunity #support#depression#lifeafterwls#reality#truth#mystory#chapterinmylife#myjourney#mycatapillermoment#riseabove#levelup#wlsaccountability#accountability#trying#wei#weightlossunity #mentalhealthawareness#bingeeatingrecovery#wontgiveup#upsanddowns#bariatricsleeve#sleevegastrectomy#regain#weightgain #weightloss #regainafterwls#regainmylife#regainmymomentum#ican#iamstrong
Hey everyone. Sorry I didn’t have time to do a video today but here’s what I did and how I made it.
Chicken legs and taco bowls
10-15 chicken legs (depending if you want 2-3 a day)
1 bag of carrot chips
2 1/2 pounds chop meat
1 Taco season packet
1 jar Taco sauce
1 can refried beans
1 bag taco mix cheese
Pre hear oven to 400*
On a cookie sheet coat bottom with cooking spray or a little oil
Lay out the chicken legs
Slice onions and put on top of chicken
Pit carrot chips on top of chicken
Season with adobo, black pepper, dry parsley (if you have it)
Bake for about 40-45 mins until chicken is done turning legs over half way
Fry up the chopped meat adding the taco season, adobo and black pepper
Once the meat is cooked add the taco sauce
In your food prep containers add the chop meat and top with the refried beans and taco mix cheese.

What losing 80 lbs has done to my face— almost nothing!!! I keep running into people I haven’t seen in a while and they comment that my face has thinned out, but my face is (except my second chin shrinking) the least change I see.
