i started gaining weight kind of emotionally eating so when i had my first daughter i was already 250 pounds i wanted to be emotionally present and you know interact with my girls and have energy for them but my anxiety was almost crippling some days that i couldn't be the mom that i wanted to be she was getting larger all the time i worried about stress on her joints and i worried about things like heart problems i didn't like the way she seemed to feel about herself and her overall presence wasn't positive and as a mother that concerned me a lot i have a really close-knit group of friends every year we get together at christmas and we always take a photo together christmas 2017.
we took our photo together and when i saw it like my eyes just my jaw dropped i couldn't believe that that was me standing next to my friends i thought you know i'm not even 30 years old yet and i'm physically you know not able to walk up my stairs without having severe pain in my knees i just really hated what i saw when i looked in the mirror that was kind of my aha moment and that really hit me and i started really looking at myself that was just appalled like i just i couldn't believe how big i got it was like yeah like we really gotta change our lives like completely so finally we found that drive to do something about it there were days when i felt like i was definitely going to quit there were days when i felt like it wasn't worth it that i wasn't worth it but i just kept pushing and i wanted to set a great example for my daughters we got heavy together and then velocity so i've lost 125 pounds in just under 14 months and i lost 95 pounds in under 14 months every step of the way it's been just tag teaming together all the way through in the beginning i never thought that we would lose this much weight it's just about prioritizing are we going to spend 30 minutes watching netflix this evening are we going to spend 30 minutes in our living room doing a quick workout i've had an emotional attachment to food it was my comfort the sugar and the sodium and all that stuff i just really couldn't bite it our eating habits were horrendous we didn't prepare any of our meals barely at home we ordered out a lot we spent a lot of money on junk food takeout it was possible for us to lose so much weight just by completely switching the way that we were eating we like to make all of our stuff kind of instead of buying it because we know what goes into it being able to get that salt and sugar out of my body and just having so much more energy my attitude towards everything complete did a 360.
Like just such a better father partner and just happier with myself and i think besides our girls our biggest accomplishment [Music] i still have like still trying to get rid of a little my belly but i don't really have that much access skin so i feel like i worked really really hard you know to get to this body and then i'll still put pants on and i'll you know have this kind of bulge where the skin is i'm really self-conscious about my belly about my loose skin which i'm having removed in a few days time it is something that i'm wanting to get rid of it's a way to close this chapter of my weight loss journey and then start a new one i saved this outfit for post-surgery this is something that i would look at in stores and say man i wish i could wear that we just touched down in hamilton ontario pretty much exactly 48 hours from now i will be going under so i'm sitting in my doctor's office right now i'm starting to feel jittery because it's so real it's the night before surgery kind of thinking about how much is it gonna hurt i'm just really trying to stay positive tomorrow's gonna be the big day so it is surgery morning i'm headed to the clinic right now my procedure is at 8 30.
