I wanted to workout today but my neck said NO! Spinal fusion surgery nearly 3 months ago and I’m still feeling the effects. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body and know when it’s time to stop...rest...pick it up tomorrow! So I’m hitting these books instead vsg #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgeryjourney #healthy #surgicaljourney #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #blackgirlsworkouttoo #fitness #fitmom #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #beforeandafterweightloss #motivation #fitnessmotivation

Mannnn 👂🏽 listen... put in the work..get the results! Every workout counts. This coming from someone who starts and stops all the time since I had this surgery. Comfortable is not the word. Before surgery I literally would kill myself working out. Now the motivation comes and goes. I make sure to get my steps or I make a point to make better choices. When I do get in the mood, I go all in. Like 6-10miles all in or full blown muscle failure (I don’t recommend) in the gym! Trust me when I say... consistency is KEY!! #vsg #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgeryjourney #healthy #surgicaljourney #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #blackgirlsworkouttoo #fitness #fitmom #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #beforeandafterweightloss #motivation #fitnessmotivation

The look I give when I’m told by nurses and doctors “you weren’t that big.” The common statement I’m told every time I’m asked my surgical history. I know I should take it as a compliment but it stings a little #vsg #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgeryjourney #healthy #surgicaljourney #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #blackgirlsworkouttoo #fitness #fitmom #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #beforeandafterweightloss #motivation #fitnessmotivation

Working out is one of my favorite things to do. Let’s just say I often don’t have time. In this journey it is a MUST! I’m almost to my year anniversary and I can say had I worked out as much as I wanted, I’d be at my goal by now. But though I’ve been in the 160s for nearly 7 months, I still love where I’m at! I love the skin I’m in #vsg #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgeryjourney #healthy #surgicaljourney #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #blackgirlsworkouttoo #fitness #fitmom #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #beforeandafterweightloss #motivation #fitnessmotivation

Something they don’t really speak on when one goes into this journey, is the way old medication can cause new issues. Before the surgery I suffered from migraines and after the surgery they came back a bit stronger. One thing about prescriptions is it’s all about weight and body composition that tailors a script to YOU personally. Part of the reason they say never share drugs. Well I was taking 100mg of topamax/topirmatr to prevent migraines. After surgery I began taking the meds about 3 months later. I was on it for 3 weeks before the side effects began. I was sad, unmotivated, tired, and overwhelmed all at once. I was caring for my daughter and 15yo cousin at the time and had it not been for my stronger sense of responsibility, I don’t know what I would’ve done to relieve the effects I was feeling. I cried every morning, I cried every night. It was an impossible feat to overcome. When I went to see my Bariatric doctors I completely fell apart in the office at the mere question of “how you feeling?” I say that to say, check all meds after surgery. Keep your doctors informed and never hesitate to reach out for help. My meds were set for a 200+lb person and I was now 175. Always monitor what you’re taking before and after #vsg #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgeryjourney #healthy #surgicaljourney #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #blackgirlsworkouttoo #fitness #fitmom #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #beforeandafterweightloss #motivation #fitnessmotivation

Exactly 90 days and I was shrinking faster than I could chart. In the first few weeks I struggled with keeping things down. I did what is called dumping on a regular basis. I literally could only eat 3 bites per meal. I was getting in 20oz of water a day. All the restrictions and must haves were a struggle. I couldn’t do most the things others were doing. It was s rough 3 months. #vsg #weightlossjourney #weightlosssurgeryjourney #healthy #surgicaljourney #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevelife #blackgirlsworkouttoo #fitness #fitmom #vsgjourney #vsgsupport #beforeandafterweightloss #motivation #fitnessmotivation
