The Normal Ones...

So of course every good blogger has these super glam photos posted on their blogs and IG. Like they look like they literally "woke up like this".... So if you know me, the glam thing you know that is a super stretch..
I'm normal at this point in life, I prefer leggings, Jordans and hoodie every chance I get...
I have served my time in the club in 5-6 inch heels with the dresses short enough for my niece to wear.

So when I sat down with my good friend, Chaz about doing photos for my blog I know I was probably every photographers nightmare.

No, like seriously....

She asked about my ideas for my shoot, my visions, and I had nothing.. I mean I'm not a model?
I like cookies too much....My 'sexy face' looks like I have something in my eye,lol


So I did my own make up (scary, I know),
Wore two of my favorite items; a denim shirt from Torrid (that my boobs are apparently too big for), and a tulle skirt from Zellie For She,
And sat in front of the camera...

I sat just as who I am in real life, and what my blog is..
Awkward.
Kinda of a mess,
and slightly odd.







No filters, No crazy hollywood edits....
(Although I did ask for Chaz to photoshop in Teyana Taylor's abs from the 'Fade' video, Im still waiting to hear back on that one)




These photos are just me....And women just like me....
The plain girls who can't draw on their brows to save their life,
The girls who can't 'bake' their face, but can bake a cake....or buy one?
The girls who Netflix and Chill before it became a trend,
The girls who don't have perfect edges or twist out


This is for us... The normal ones

Special THANK YOU to Chaz from Destiny Fulfilled for the photos, and being an amazing friend

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story
On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my system ).
I…

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date.

The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days....

Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree?
So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education.

via GIPHY
I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit..........
I was scared.
Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying.
While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain...
I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like red wine),and started really proc…

15 FAQs.....

Jan 2018 vs Dec 2018  I haven't been able to get rid of that red shirt just yet, so some days I wear it around my waist

In the theme of transparency , I will answer some of the questions I get frequently (even some of the ones I said don't ever ask lol.) So here is the top 15 questions I am asked the most, in no real order...

1. When did you decide to have WLS and what made you do it? 
About 2.5 years ago I was in a relationship and we were planing to have a baby, I knew I was going to have a rough pregnancy due to some weight related health issues that I had..... So in an effort to start the kid off right I made the decision to take my pre opt health a bit more seriously ...I also wanted to break some generational health curses while utilizing things that I have learned about food as  I have gotten older.

2. Do you still plan to have kids?Can you have kids?
Yes, a Baby 'Crumb' is still the stars. However since I have had surgery, it has been suggested that I wait 18 months …
