I live in your area and wondering who did your tummy tuck? How much did it cost? What weight did you get down to when you got the tummy tuck? Thanks!

Dr. Gavin Dry did my surgery, his office is located in Kirkland at the Northwest Plastic Surgery Center.
He and his entire staff are amazing!!

I had both my stomach and thighs done the same time, so the total surgery was 16,000$ but I believe the break down for just the tummy tuck was around 7,500$.

I weighed in at 141 day of surgery.

It’s now been over a year since my tummy tuck. After losing 118 pounds I was left with loose skin, I had a tummy tuck and a thigh lift, and now 1 year later….left with nothing but a faded scar. I will take it! Lol it kinda makes me feel like a little warrior chic. And my abs, those are nice too!! Been busting my butt for a year to get some abs! Work hard ❤️ #funeralformyfat #tummytuck

A few days/weeks ago I was asked to post my grocery list (shout out to thekenyon) so here it is… 
Keep in mind that this is my weekly round-up of grub. My husband and I cook once a day and pack our meals for the following day. We feed yourselves and one other person who lives under our roof. Basically this will feed all three of us 2 full meals per day for a full week. (This arrangement works perfectly for my little family but it might not work for everyone… just thrown’ that out there) 
Going down the list:
- Natural Boneless Pork Shoulder (3lbs) We prepare it by following this recipe: Crock Pot Puerco Pibil
- Bulk Thick Applewood Smoked Bacon (2lbs) For use in bacon & brussel sprouts recipe, our Saturday morning eggs/bacon feast and other stuff
- Jenny-O Ground Turkey (2lbs) for the Cilantro Turkey Burgers
- Chuck Roast Boneless (2.5lbs) for the delicious “Aunt Robin’s Roast” recipe from my favorite cook book: Paleo Slow Cooking
- Grassfed Ground Beef (2lbs) for our own version of paleo sloppy joes
- Pack of water bottles for hydration, duh
- Whole chicken legs quartered (6 legs) for crock-potted legs. No spesific recipe cause we just wing it w/ whatever is lying around. Spices galore.
- Texas Chicken Ranch Eggs (2 dozen) I love my eggs.
- White Onion 
- Red Bell Pepper
- Bagged Brussels Sprouts (x2)
- Large Celery
- XL Avocado (x7) I eat these every day w/ or w/o other food
- Cilantro
- Baby Carrots (1lb) 
- Whole Raw Cashews (1lb) 
- Whole Raw Almonds (1lb) 
- Kerrygold Butter Unsalted (x3!) For my daily cup of bulletproof coffee and the bacon & brussels sprouts
- Onion Powder
- Pure Atlantic Ocean Salt
- Tomato Sauce
- Ground Paprika 
- Ground Cumin Seed

So there you have it. Not terribly exciting, but it gets us through the week with our bellies full. There are, of course, other ingredients that are required for our daily meals which we already have stocked in our kitchen and are not included here.

I assume you've already posted this, but can you re-post or link your bulletproof coffee recipe, pretty please! :D Thank you lovely!

ahopefulloser:

My husband and I share a batch of bulletproof coffee every morning. This is my make-shift recipe… I apologize in advance:

I’ll grind 1/4th of a cup of whole coffee beans in my coffee grinder. Meanwhile I’ll have my electric kettle heating up 34oz of water (2 water bottles) which I’ll pour over the ground beans in my french press. I’ll let it brew for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. While I wait, I’ll slice about 4 tbsp of kerrygold grassed butter into a large plastic container and I’ll splash in some MCT oil. Once the coffee is brewed, I’ll pour the pressed coffee into the butter and MCT and I’ll blend it with my hand blender. Voila! Hot, delicious, frothy, bulletproof coffee.

And that’s how I make coffee for 2 every morning.

There are photos of my set up here, here and here

phuzz asked:

Because of you I went to the grocery store at midnight to buy low carb food to get me started on my journey :) but I want to ask about what you think of your fitbit flex? I'm not sure what fitness watch to buy &I'm always nervous about big purchases

ahopefulloser:

Wow, thank you for letting me know. That means a lot to me! I’m thrilled to hear that you’ve decided to start your health journey the low-carb way! My personal experience with it has been very positive and I know it’ll work for you too as long as you’re persistent.

I have a fitbit “one” it’s the clip type which I wear on my hip. I absolutely love it. It’s a really great motivating tool and it’s super low maintenance. I use it all week (during the day to track my steps and at night to track my sleep) and I only have to charge it for like an hour once a week. I’ve had it for over a year now and it still works perfectly even though I’ve accidentally washed it with my laundry (washer & dryer!)

Hi Maggie! Do you have a specific diet for ketosis? I've been trying to lose weight on paleo and am having no luck. Any tips? thanks :)

ahopefulloser:

I’ve been kinda lazy with my menu lately. I’ve been having my favorite foods on repeat. Mainly eggs, bacon, avocados, pork shoulder, ground beef, chicken legs, brussels sprouts. I also drink bulletproof coffee every morning. I snack on cashews and pistachios.
Don’t know if it’s the ideal keto diet, sorry. I should do more research, for sure.

This is my 65 lbs weight loss transformation.

My “after” photos on my blog were from June 2013, so I thought it was time to update them. Building muscle/decreasing body fat has been a longer, more difficult journey for me physically, whereas losing the first 50 lbs (which I did from Dec ‘11-Dec ‘12) was mentally/emotionally one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life.

Over the last nearly 2 years, I’ve lost 6” from my bust, 11” from my waist, and 8” from my hips. Believe me when I say if I can do it, anyone can. I was watching “Extreme Weight Loss” earlier and I heard Chris Powell say something I think is pretty powerful, so I will leave you with that: “Ordinary people don’t do this stuff, extraordinary people do.”
