I wanted to take a moment to share some of the reasons why I feel so lucky to have this wonderful, supportive man in my life.
1. He treats to our dog like she’s a real person. He asks her how she’s feeling, asks her if she wants things even though she doesn’t understand, and just randomly chats to her all day.
2. He doesn’t care about what people think of him. He wears flip flops with socks tucked between his toes and wears shorts and sleeveless tops in winter.
3. Although he doesn’t care what people think of him, he defends me to the ground and gets angry on my behalf when he thinks I’m not being treated as I should.
4. He is the most chivalrous person I’ve met. He can be in a massive strop with me but will still take the shopping bags out of my hands and open doors for me.
5. He makes me laugh every day. Some days it’s more of an eye roll or a shake of the head instead of a full on belly laugh, but either way life is always so much sunnier with him in it.
6. He treats my family as his own. Although that means relentlessly teasing my sisters it also means loving them all as much as I do.
7. He gets me things that he knows I would love but won’t buy myself. He balances my thriftiness with his generosity and always puts me first.
8. Although it’s his least favourite thing in the world, he will always share his food with me if I want a taste. No one could understand how much of a big deal this is!
9. He is so so respectful and appreciative of me and tells me all the time how lucky he feels to have me.
10. He’s weird. I’ve never met anyone who eats such strange things, has such odd superstitions and who says things that don’t make any sense. .
Yesterday, while I was dying of hunger and thirst, was the first time I second guessed having surgery. I’m so mentally and physically TIRED from life right now. On top of the surgery, I have other major things going on and I’m having a very difficult time juggling everything. But after the EGD was done (which was super quick and I don’t remember it at all lmao) and I was able to drink and eat, I immediately regretted second guessing my decision. My health is becoming priority like it should be. Good health is priceless and I need to just fight through this because a year from now I’ll be thanking myself ❤️ thank you to all of you guys who have followed me for so long and are SO supportive. You guys are appreciated more than you know! 😍😘 #myweightlossstory#wlsjourney#wlscommunity#wls#rny
Are you trying to make a transformation? What’s working for you? 🔥
@enfimfit_: "Today I woke up thinking about all my trajectory in the transformation of the new "I", and then I looked back, I looked at that unhealthy person that I went for 21 years of my life.
I looked at that person, who was never really Lorena, who at one point decided to change and stop dreaming. I started to fight for my dream, to move to perform, I started to fight FOR ME!
Because yes, I had given up on myself and it hurts me so much to say it, pain that fills my eyes even today. To see that I gave up on myself, so new, so fast and easy .. But, thank God it was not too late.
I can only think whenever I see my starting point and where I arrived, how difficult this trajectory is. I will not lie to anyone ... It is very difficult, exhausting, sometimes unfair too! But you will never see me say that this trajectory is unnecessary and that it is not rewarding!
When you see my evolution, obviously the difference in appearance is glaring, but what I always cherish is the HEALTH I gained. For everything! I was about to have a serious illness, but my head was already sick ... I was completely unhappy!
Today my mental health is my key to life. Today I can say in all letters that I am a healthy and happy person, because before that, I did not know what happiness was, and the sadness, for me, was the failure of the soul.
Change for you, for your health, for your happiness!
If you have beauty, just show it! Because every inch of you is perfect, from head to toe. Do not worry about your size, with what they say, if you are in good health and well with you, the rest is just the rest!" _____________________

Shoulders and back are hurting today, overall though doing really well. Sleeping is all over the place, I slept so much the first 2 days its hard to go back to a regular routine. Little nausea. Gas pain is almost completely gone. Trying to feel like myself again. The breathing spirometer is so helpful to me. My chest feels so tight and then I get a little congestion, once I use it it helps completely. Very little energy still. Trying really hard to take in all protein and fluids. Reached my fluid goal yesterday and had like 45 grams of protein. Today will be better.
Throwing it back to 2013. This was during one of my stints on a VLCD, i had lost about 20kgs here. I than blew out again over the following 6 months and gained all the weight I had lost plus more. This was my last failed attempt before making my life changing decision.

Got another dexa scan to take to my first plastics consultation on Monday 😱😱. Above average lean mass and so fucking close to a normal fat mass index. The first time I’ll ever be normal in terms of my weight. Even though I have these results sitting right in front of me, I still feel like they aren’t mine and that I’m still fat as 😂😂 ANYWAY of course I’m stoked. Thank you @nicky_saliba 😘
Mandatory I’m on a flight and I have so much belt over I need to roll it to fit it in the shot picture !!! Omg guys, it’s so weird to have so much room in the chair and have people not look upset cause they have to squeeze next to a fatty!!! Major NSV to have room around my bum in this tiny chair!!! Forever great full for my tool!!! #nsv#wlscommunity#wlsjourney#weightlossjourney#extremeweightloss#wls
Not my cutest collage but officially kicked ass today. Day 3 in the gym, weight stall is over for now. Working my butt off, literally. Definitely quickly falling in love with yoga. It makes me feel human and less stabby. And let’s be honest, these are serious upgrades 😂
Day 6 ✅ woke up tired today and didn’t want to get outta bed but I did and felt better after. No one said following your dreams was easy. It takes work, passion, motivation, love and support. You will fail but as my train @billyruehlmann always says...fail forward. Learn from your mistakes and keep the dream going. #offthechain
When I started this journey there was one thing I promised myself. I promised through it all, the good, the bad, the beauty, the ugly, I would be real. My body is very sensitive post surgery. One shot of alcohol (which I have done ONE time) gets me completely wasted. One bite of sugar too much makes me dump for an hour. I am currently fighting stomach cramps, nausea, heart palpitations, tachycardia, and chills because I ate one bite past 8-10g of sugar (my body’s sugar threshold). One bite too much causes me agony. This is why I don’t eat shit. This is why I chose RNY over Sleeve. I wanted to feel like shit when I ate shit. I wanted to be punished if I made a bad decision. I don’t talk much about dumping because, well, I rarely dump. Not because I don’t dump but because I make GOOD choices to avoid this. I have dumped two times in this last ten months and that includes tonight. This sucks but this is part of my why. And if you are choosing RNY then this is part of your why too. This too shall pass, but I guarantee my brain is being rewired. Without even thinking twice I will and do avoid sugar at all costs. This is my reality. This is the ugly but also the beauty depending how you look at it. Bariatric surgery is not the easy way out.
