Before we began dating, I was secretly practicing writing your last name...”Mrs. Daisy Teh”.... I always knew before there was officially an “us” that you were meant for me.
We have been through hell and back to fight for our love, fight for our marriage, fight for our family, and fight to experience joy, peace and happiness together. You are still worth it. You will always be worth it.
I really like this picture, because I miss being this size. My inspiration to get back on track! 🙃
Drain tube is officially OUT! So, so excited... Now, we wait.
I’m in the part of recovery that many people get frustrated with. I feel good but still not 100% yet. I want to do things, but need to take it easy. I want to see my results immediately, but the fact is, it’s going to take several weeks, even months.
Instead of focusing on the negatives of recovery, I am being thankful. Thankful for this amazing body I have. It birthed a healthy, beautiful baby. Supported me while I was overweight. Was strong enough to go to the gym, day in and day out. My body got stronger. Created muscles I never knew I could have.
I’m not only thankful for this journey and opportunity, but extremely thankful for my husband who stood beside of me. Who let me spend time in the gym and shifted his schedule so I could do so. He has never once complained about healthy recipes I’ve tried or my spontaneous Morrow Mountain hikes. He took wonderful care of me last week and never got frustrated. Thank you James, from the bottom of my heart! 💜
My boo thang boo boo Bam Bam! 😋 @theitdad is fashionable and talented! ⠀⠀
And George is SO...patient. Mostly patient with me, his wife, whom can’t stay focused for more than 2 seconds because my mind is going 100mph and all I see are bright and shiny objects.
Our 1-hour shoot ended up taking 2.5 hours because of me...I was shopping IRL, checking emails, people watching, watching people watching me, me wanting to do other photos outside of the shoot, me wanting to take photos of him instead. Poor guy. 🤷🏻♀️ Opposites DO attract lol! #TheItMom
Some days are harder than others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I struggle too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I almost threw in the towel more times than what I can count on all my fingers and toes. I wanted to break down in tears half way through, I stopped and walked away but came back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I never quit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In fact I pushed through the pain and doubt and turned it into strength. To be better today than I was yesterday, and reminding myself that these hard days makes the good days so much better! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not easy- I am still a work in progress and always will be. I know it and I own it! #onceuponafitness
This picture is just not the happy happy picture which you and I see now.
It says much more, reminds me that life goes on, no matter what. Everytime I see this picture, I see myself a woman of emotional and physical strength,which I thought never possess before this incident in our lives. It made me and #BigV so much closer to each other emotionally.
This is of May, 2014, precisely after a month when we were pleasantly surprised that we were about to become parents, surprise because due to some unexplained infertility issues that we had been battling over the last two years, conceiving itself was a far fetched dream.
In our first scan, the foetus showed no heartbeat, ofcourse we were heartbroken, I thought that was the end. Our doctor tried to reason with us that, that was a common occurrence. But why US?? Why Why Why??? We as a couple, battled this emotional and physical trauma and emerged stronger than ever!
This was the birthday celebration of my sister-in-law who had come to visit us, and me and my hub's first participation in a celebration after that incident. I was mentally and physically exhausted but good food and good company didn't harm anyone :) .
Cheers to our Angel baby💖💖💖
