Today is 17 weeks post-op (my surgery was on a Wednesday), but my official 4-month Surgiversary is on Saturday the 15th.
HAPPY 4 MONTH SURGIVERSARY TO ME!
And I just have to say – man, is my body changing! Have you ever looked at one of your body parts and just thought “that’s not mine!” ? It happens to me a lot now. I look at my knees, or thighs, or arms, or neck and just freak out because this isn’t the body I’ve had for the last umpteen years.
And it’s GLORIOUS.
I’m down from a size 22 in jeans to a size 16. My TC leggings from LulaRoe are too big. I can wear normal boots and they actually zip over my calves. THIS IS NOT MY BODY.
And yet, it is.
I have become someone who is in control of her life. I make choices that are the best ones for me and not just because I’m reacting to life around me.
I still see a lot of problem areas, but I’m working on those. After two weeks off, I was back in the studio to work out last night (oh my booty is so sore today!).
One of these days I’m going to have an actual waist, but my belly needs to join the party first. Everything is going down fairly proportionally, which means my belly is still the biggest thing about me. I hate it. I feel like I still look pregnant sometimes (I don’t, but my brain doesn’t always believe that). But if I keep on keeping on, it will go down too.
BUT I HAVE A NECK Y’ALL.
