I Use to be 200 pounds

Hi guys, my names is Krystal and I am a vsg-er for over 3yrs now.

I started my journey in 2015 at almost 200lbs! now I am a steady 120. if you don’t know what VSG is, it is simply weight loss surgery.

Okay now that the basics are out of the way, lets get down and dirty. If you are reading this blog before getting the surgery just know that I am going to only give you facts on what to expect after having this life changing surgery.

The After Effects

Here are a few things you will suffer from after having this particular weight loos surgery.

  • Excruciating heart burn- I mean to the point of going to the emergency room.
  • Stomach issues- issues that will last an entire month if you eat the wrong foods,
  • No Spicy food- if you decide to splurge by adding a couple of drops of hot sauce on your food, you will regret it for a least two weeks.
  • Socially award moments- when going out with friends you will defiantly be called out because you get full after eating two bites.

In my next blog I will go into the benefits i’ve had after having this surgery. I also have some videos on my Youtube channel. check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSDqmsNG8DE

Girl Let’s Talk About Dating Over 30

Let’s talk about dating in your 30s. My question is, should we date men that are older than us to get better results? The reason I’m asking is because since I’ve been divorced dating has been horrible! The men are either too into themselves, too boring, orrrr they’re are just pure manipulators. Am I wrong? One question men ask on dates that gets under my skin is the infamous ‘what do you like to do for fun’? I know it’s weird but if I were to be honest with them I would come off as the most boringness person in the world. Since being divorced i’ve just now found a little piece of my self, so I’m still a work in progress. I say all this to say when I’m asked that question my answer is ‘nothing’.

I Cut It Off!

So I decided to cut all my hair off! This was not an easy decision for me, but  did it. After the big chop I felt so beautiful as if all those ideas and thoughts placed in my head as a child and an Adult, that you’re not pretty if you don’t have “long hair’ were all lies. In the black community hearing those things  were very normal.

I Thought I Would Look So Manly

  I have to admit social media such as Instagram helped me a lot because I saw other beautiful women who looked like me rock short hairstyles such as the one that I got. After 3 months I can honestly say that this was the best thing I could have ever done and I am loving every second of it.
