– Hey guys, so we’re backfor another weight lossupdate video, woohoo!Are you so excited?So it’s been four months now. And I’m doing well. So we’re gonna talk about the positives,there are there’s a negative,but we’re gonna get to that later. So some of the positives,I am down 70 pounds,which is unreal to me. I can see it, I can feel it,it’s just, I don’t know, it’s there. And it’s very much known,loving my clothes lately,I’m in a shirt size 18. Dresses are 18 and then bottoms are aroundbetween a 22 and a 24. So I’m super excited aboutthat, I feel good in my skin. And I can just do so much more. We just traveled to California. And I’m just able to dothings and I love that. One of the most excitingthings that’s happenedis your girl is now in the 200 range. So I started my journey,at over 300 pounds,way way over 300 pounds. And now I am in the 200. So that’s awesome, I was soexcited for that milestone. And now I can’t wait tosee where I go from here. So one of the things Iget asked all the time iswhat do you eat?What are your special recipes?Honestly, I don’t have special recipes. I cook pretty much the same way. Well, right now I’m not cooking at all,because we’re in the process of moving. But I eat pretty much the same way. And I say that and then I’m like,but I don’t really have a lot of carbs,I will have a little bit becauseit’s not realistic to say,”Oh, I had weight loss surgery,”I’m never eating such and such again. “It’s just not realistic butit’s definitely in moderation. I always eat my protein first. So whether it be fish, chickenor meat beef of some kind,still not really having pork. I will try again because alot of people have said thatwhen they had the weight loss surgery,they weren’t able to havepork in the beginning,but then they were ableto have it later on. As far as carbs go though, likeI still have not had bread,I do, I’m able to eat moresalad now, which is good. And I’ve still not hadany kind of Coke productslike and I say Coke productslike I call everything Coke. So I will never have that. Because that will stretch your stomach. And so I just drink waterand then I do have coffee. But like tonight, Ace and Iare on a little mini trip. And we went and got icecream and I got a kid’s cone. And I was satisfied. So there are ways to still treat yourselfand not feel left out becausethat’s the hard part for me,Mentally is nobody says,“Hey, you wanna hook up?”And let’s go look at each other. “Like that’s not a thing. It’s always do you wanna go have a drink?Do you wanna go get something to eat. So this is my way of like,I can have a little bit of something. Tonight for dinner, I had a lobster tail. And I was good with that. So it’s just all in what you want to do. And just remember moderation. That is my big thing is moderation. I unfortunately, I didnot do my measurements. I don’t know what I was thinking. But I can tell you, I feel different. I have non scale victories of sittingin booths with no problem. We did fly on a airplaneand I was so excited’cause I was thinking I wasn’t gonna haveto use the seat belt extender, but I did. So maybe by my next flight,I won’t have to use it. But that’s okay, we’re movingin the right direction. So I’m okay with that. The one thing that I’m havinga really hard time withis hair loss and I knowsome people are like,”Girl, you need more protein. “I’ve talked with my doctor,the protein level’s not an issue. Sometimes if it’s just like,if you’re gonna lose hair,you’re gonna lose hair. And it’s not just becauseof the weight loss. Anytime you have a drastic life changelike with within your body,like any kind of surgery,it can cause your body to go into shock. So I definitely am feelingthat, it stresses me out,which doesn’t help with the hair loss. But I’m gonna have to just suck it up,put my big girl pantieson not as big as before,but put them on and get through this. Because at the end of the day,I just need to be healthier. So I cannot stressmyself out over my hair. Okay, this is just fromblow drying my hair guys. So I know, I know, in thegrand scheme of things,this is not a big deal butoh my gosh, this is so tough. Like, it makes me not wanna do my hair. But then if I do it,it makes it look fuller and stuff. And I know everybody’s like,“Oh, she has so much hair. “But I’m telling you,it’s so much less than what I had before. And it’s just my thing, likeeverybody has their thing. You know, some girls areknown for their boobs. I’m not, I’m known for my hair. Oh, okay, I don’t wanna cry. I think I’m gonna try thesethe gummy bear hair things. If any of you have ever used those,let me know what you think. I’ve tried biotin, I’ve tried everything. Yesterday, I kept myhair up in a messy bun. I never even brushed it. So that way I didn’t have to stress aboutthe hair falling out yesterday. So that’s a little tip,if you’re going through thatand you don’t haveanything to do that day. Just don’t brush your hair,just put it up in amessy bun and go with it. Own that messy bun that day, okay? I’m trying to talkconvince myself, it’s okay,so I’m gonna talk to you guys. But every time I run myhand through my hair,it just more falls out. So we’re gonna curl it andmake it look fuller. That’s what we’re gonna do. A little tip that I’ve learned is thatI’ve been buying clothes fromLane Bryant on clearance. So like I went the other day,I’m getting shirts for $5,which if any of you areLane Bryant shoppers,you know that’s notreal like those prices. I also do dresses becausedresses can last a few sizes. So if you are in theprocess of losing weight,you can do that. I personally, like that’s mything is I like to go shopping,so I am gonna treat myselfand take myself shopping,but I can do it on a budget. So always check the clearance area. Because you can get somereally good deals there. I think I got like, nine shirtsor something and spent $60. And they’ll last like,it’s not like they’re,you know, on the verge of not fitting,they’re gonna last me a little while. Somebody mentioned to me the other dayabout how good my skin looked. And she’s like, “Oh, it’sbecause of your weight loss. “Which in true in reality,what typically happens iswhen people lose weight,a lot of times they’llstart looking older. So I definitely have tocredit that to my skincarethat I’ve been using. I use it, and I use a productthat helps tighten my skin. If you are having thoseissues, let me knowbecause that’s definitelysomething that I’ve noticed. And somebody mentionedit to me the other daythat they couldn’tbelieve how much youngerI looked after weight lossbecause so many people strugglewith looking older. I have not found Facebookgroups to be positive. Everybody is super negative in there. And people ask questions like,”Hey, when can we have pizza?”Well you’re having weight loss surgeryLike that shouldn’t be,I’m not saying don’t have the pizza,but that shouldn’t be somewhere you goto ask those kind of questionsso I just stay away from it. I just I have you guys. And I get so many questions and commentsabout my weight loss surgery. It’s been amazing for me,my family is so supportive. They tell me all the timehow proud of me they are,and they can really see a difference. I just have more energyand I’m ready to go. So I had my doctor’sappointment this past monthand had my blood work done andeverything is looking great. My blood pressure was awesome. So I’m very, very happy withthe weight loss surgery. And I appreciate you guys supporting meand getting me through the hard days. I will see you guys nextmonth for our update. Thanks guys, bye. – You look beautiful. – Thanks. And go shopping just buy yourself clothesthen you won’t focus on your hair. – Spin, there you go.
