My journey to a healthy life. This is my progress:
I feel like *kitten* but my arms look great today. See the bright side!
I'm feeling so proud for finishing Epic II!
Caroline Girvan just announced Epic Heat! I never thought I'll feel like crying because I can't exercise.
Yesterday's workout was 1h of push-ups/420 kcal. This is my last hurrah as a looong pause from fitness will follow (17.03 ->) and when I'll return, I won't be able to insist with the chest exercises like I did in the last year. But I am very proud that I went from zero to hero.
You should indeed be proud: what an achievement! I hope all goes well for you this week.
@charmmeth Thank you so much!1
Look at those 11's! 👀1
Hi! It's day 14. I am recovering well and in comparison with the first week, I'm feeling great.
Every time I go to the doctor's, he's telling stories about my surgery and we are laughing. He said that although I don't show it on the outside, I have a VERY big chest muscles and that gave him some trouble because they were so thick and could barely push in the implants. :-))) Damn push-ups.
The only downside (now) is that I get tired very fast. I could barely do two 3000-4000 steps walks but I'll push through and I'll get back on track.
It's so worth it. I LOVE how I look now. :-)
how are you feeling and healing? progress?1
I hope you are healing well and getting back to being able to exercise.1
On March 17th I've started to be more active. I'm allowed to walk, climb stairs, do squats, lunges etc. Anything low impact with my legs and glutes but I can't do a lot as I still get tired very fast. I'm not allowed to move my hands too much or raise my elbows above my shoulders. I'll be able to do upper body exercises after 6 months from surgery. But I'll get there. :-)
I'm recovering great and my scars already look amazing for only 1 month (it takes 6-12 months for full recovery). Breasts look great but they are still too hard from inflammation and too high. It will take a while longer to drop and fluff and take a more anatomical shape but I love them already. I feel like a woman again and regained my self confidence!
I have 2 months post-op and already 20 workouts done. Given the situation and restrictions, that's amazing. I've been maintaining my weight but my muscles are not as firm.. but can't do anything about it if the doctor forbids certain things. Meanwhile I'll show you my 1 year progress photo for my hamstrings.
30 workouts post op. I dropped a bit of weight and the abs started to show a bit more.
I think I'll start working on it or at least try, cause the doctor said I'm allowed after 3 months (2 wks left).
Otherwise... I'm crazy busy, with a bit a decrease in motivation but I keep grinding.
Some new friends to encourage me would be great so if you want to, drop me a message and a request.

For the moment I'm changing my weekly goal to 4 workouts/week, no matter the calorie burn. I feel pretty discouraged with all the cellulite popping back out but that's life... I have to be patient and recover first in order to be a badass again next year.5
