**disclaimer** long post ahead**
These two people are my reasons why I had surgery. It's not very often to find people my age getting weight loss surgery. All of my life I have been over weight. I know that has been the same for alot of people who have made this decision to better their future. The first picture is of my mom. 4 years ago today (1/22/14) my mom passed away from heart disease and diabetes complications at the young age of 39. She did not always make the best decisions for her health (she was actually down to around 140lbs from 350 lbs) but she waited too long to make those changes to ensure she would be around for longer. She smoked for years and ate garbage foods, but she loved my sister and I to the best of her ability meaning she didnt always put her health on her priority list. She is the main reason why I had surgery. I wanted to get an earlier start on my health then she did to make sure I would be around longer then 39. I know she would be so proud of me and the progress I have made. The second picture is of my little sister. I had to help raise her due to my mom being sick for most of our lives. She is my light. We have been through so much together and through all of the obstacles life has given us we have still managed to make it. I want to be around for my sister and ensure that I can be the best *helicopter sister* she will ever have. 😂 she went to every pre op/post op/and surgery day that I have had and has been one of my biggest supporters. I love you sissy. I started early and did everything in my power to make I can live the best life possible.#rny #rnycommunity#gastricbypass#wls#wlscommunity#before#after#during

My #mec#mecrushmonday is well my before body, @hopefulraeofsunshine really got me thinking the other day about this. I have never hated my before body. I always wore tank tops and shorts and leggings, 2 piece tankinis to the beach with no cover ups when I could fine one that fit. I can’t say l absolutely loved my before body but I can say I didn’t hate it and I wasn’t ashamed of it either! I wish I had time to go find more pics but this body allowed me to run obstacle races and climb mountains at 250+ close to 300 lbs and not for a second doubt that I could do it! #loveyorselffirst I think that because of this I will succeed with my new tool and welcome my new body as well. #mecrushmonday #bariatricgirl#gastricbypass#bariatricsurgery#rny#rnyinstafam#wlsjourney#wlscommunity
HOLY CRAP!!! 80 DO: TOTAL BODY CORE ✅ upped all of my weights and bands and that was an insane workout. Took a little bit longer because of switching up weights and bands rewinding to get back on track, but that was an awesome workout!!! #80dayobsession#applewatch#nevermissamonday
Day 7: Today is mine and hubby’s 2nd wedding anniversary. It’s bittersweet because we usually book a great trip to celebrate. This year, we couldn’t due to my surgery, but I know that my surgery will make every trip that much better. Last year, we went to Seattle and had a great time except for one night. There was a park with great views that he wanted to go to. We took the bus over, but had no idea that it was uphill. Like, a long street at a serious incline. I couldn’t do it. I was panting and cramping and sobbing with embarrassment the whole way up. It was terrible. My goal is to make it back there and tackle that hill, exchanging that terrible memory with something magical. Surgery happening next week!
Know who you are. Know what you want. Know what you deserve. And don't settle for less. Tony Gaskins // I'm calling myself out on my own shit this morning. I haven't worked out since Thursday afternoon. Yes, I have a ear and sinus infection but I still could be doing something other than eating carbs in the kitchen at one in the morning. And because of said stress eating, I have gained nearly five pounds in two weeks. Given, I could be regaining muscle but we all know stress does terrible things to our bodies (and mind) and though I'm working out most days twice a day, I am not making choices that a nutritionist would high five me about. I am 12 weeks post 360* lower body and breast lift with silicone implants behind the muscle today and I KNOW I have worked too hard and spent too much money to sink into a food coma. This week also marks 4 weeks since I returned to the gym and I am in love with lifting more now than I think I've ever been. Grow booty, grow! So, a little #motivationmonday advice: dont eat crap, fuel your body right and the muscle will follow. #bikinigoals
There’s a million of you and only one of me 💎

When do you feel naturally beautiful?
6 days post op incisions. They are healing nicely and starting to look better. Most of the glue has come off with showers. The only incision that bothers me is the biggest one where they took my tummy out of 🙀
#MondayMotivation I wish I could tell the old Chris that ate whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted and didn't consider the consequences what a better quality of life he would have had for all these years if he'd done what I've done in the last 9 months. I've wasted so much of my adult life so far because I was too fat to get off my arse and do something about it, and too lazy to do anything that involved more than 100 steps. If you're considering bariatric surgery of any kind, i encourage you to take the leap and just do it!
