Hello YouTube, this is Allison, apiper98. I created this channel to document my Slimband journey. I’ve been watching every body else in the video here in the YouTube weight loss community and I been inspired by each and every single one of you. I’m hoping that with my own videos I can do the same for anybody else to considering weight loss surgery.
I have chosen to go with Slimband, which is in Toronto. I am currently living in Edmonton, Alberta so I’ll be flying there for my surgery. My journey is moving along pretty quickly, I have been discussing it with my husband and even a friend of mine, we’ve both been looking to it and we finally made our decision and I filled out the application I believe it was on May 30th and I was approved that same day.
So our insurance does not cover it. So I will be paying paying for it by myself and I paid the deposit for the surgery on May 31st and I booked my surgery date for June 18th, which is tomorrow. So, I’m getting very excited about it. I will be flying out later today and then I’m coming back home on Sunday.
It’s going to be a really quick trip, but very exciting at the same time. to start I was 250 pounds, that’s when I first started looking into and filling out all the applications few weeks ago. I started the detox diet on June fourth and it’s a diet where you can actually not all this weight but you can actually eat food So, that went great.
Everything was just fine were fine, and the items that I was allowed to eat were good, I had no problems with it. Hello again, this is part two of my video. I just tried to upload it and there were some problems and it didn’t great work, it kept just pausing. So I’m gonna try and pick up from where I just left off .
I’ve been a detox diet since June 4th. My current weight for today was two thirty four. 4.6 which is down 15.4 pounds already, I’m going to try to do my weekly weigh ins on Fridays. I’m going to try to I’m going to do videos and get them uploaded on Fridays as well. I do home daycare so my house is usually full of a whole bunch of kids quiet gets, just a couple minutes of quiet where I can do it and get it uploaded.
So hopefully I will do it once a week on Fridays. for my goals, I’m not quite sure yet exactly where I want them to be while I have my weight loss surgery. I haven’t decided like short term yet, long term I want to be able to lose at least a hundred pounds. It’d be nice to say I lost more than a hundred, so I think my goal is going to be 145, for now.
I was looking at the BMI chart and for my height to right in the middle of a normal healthy BMI, my weight should be like 6 my number is crazy. It just seems like so far away and really low. So I’m thinking at that point people might be saying, “Whoa you’re way too thin!” I think I’m just going to stick with the 1:45 right now.
I think I can do that. I am planning to sign back-up to my old gym on July 1st. My husband and a friend of mine says they plan to come with me. And they are going to join with me my husband says that all the time though. So he hasn’t yet joined the gym with me, so if he does this time it will be fantastic and it’ll be great.
And if not, oh well I’ve done before on my own and I’ll definitely be able to do it again. I just have to try to really work on where I can fit it in to my schedule. Right now I usually start work around 7:30 in the morning and I’m usually not done until 9:30. But I’ve explained to one of the parents who has her kids here so late that I need to start putting me first and gym time first.
So I’m changing their hours, and they understand so that’s fine. So I took some pictures already, and I’m not putting them on this video, but I will put them on in like a month or so down the road when there is something to see difference wise. I haven’t told many people yet that I am doing this.
I’ve told like my one friend who’ll be looking into with me, and she still considering it, she just, you know, has to get finances together first. And my husband, and then of course my husband has shared the news with his sister and her boyfriend and his mother. So people on his side of the family know, but I have not actually told anybody in my family yet.
I haven’t decided yet if I’m ready to tell them, if I wanted to tell them or if I’d just, you know, just say you know what, I’d just been working out and eating right and that’s all you need to know. So I’m going to try that later. I’m assuming they’re not going to be on YouTube and hunting down my videos.
So I feel fine with that. I think that’s about all I just want to say, I can’t remember, but this is, the video is probably shorter. The first one didn’t quite work so bear with me as I figure it all out. So I have to, to go I’m flying out to a trial this afternoon, so I have to go get ready to pack, so thanks again watching and I’ll see you guys next week.
