Finally! 3 months 5 days in and 50lbs gone gone gone!!!

 

Funny thing though, have always been 5 feet 1.9 inches, and today measured at 5'2"! am I getting taller? lol

 

Size 20 now! Haven't been 20 since university days! Having a lot of fun digging through old clothes, will shop for new ones when I reach size 18 :)

I am taller as well. I was 5'4" on the nose for the last 10 years, now I am almost 5'5"

awesome isn't it? wonder if we'll get any taller! lol

Maybe because the weight is not weighing down your bones? and they cant stretch out?? haha sounds logical to me lol

ooh cool theory! so maybe my actual height is 5'3"? one can dream! lol

Losing the weight is going to result in less compression on the cartilage, therefore, you should be a bit taller. Less cartilage comression, the spongier it can be. Think about all the cartilage in your spine.

We are all taller in the morning than we are at night just for this reason. Lose weight and the result is apparent always.

    • Sugar , nicotine, carb , I'm not a nice person. Self isolating!
    • I already planned to do some "lower"-carbing this week, though I may consider going ultra-low if I feel up to it
    • The "swelling" is from lymphedema. The PS interrupted your lymphatic drainage system And it takes a while for the body to "reconnect." And what you're experiencing with the compression gear is absolutely true! If you don't have the proper garment in place, it will cause worse swelling below the area due to the inability for that lymph fluid to drain. I wear my sleeve every day. If I don't, then my arm gets huge and if I don't wear my glove with it, then my hand turns into a balloon. I do feel better with it than without it. It gives a comfort/secure/structure feeling. LOL. So glad you are feeling better girlie!!! Oh also, you know me...biased low carber, but $10 bet says that if you ditched the high carb crap and went back to low carb, you would notice the end of your belly bloat starting in as little as 3-4 days and maybe a complete resolution of it in 2-3weeks. hehe. Sorry couldn't resist. You know me...always biased. TY for sharing your journey girlie!! You are so brave and have been a true warrior during this time!!
    • I hear ya. So I'm taking a sewing course soon on how to alter clothes. That way I can change all my post surgery clothes to the right size when needed. Also, I will get the right fit for me and not just the generic size. If you have a sewing machine, why not try taking them in yourself?
    • I'm also trying to cut back on buying clothes! My problem is the opposite of yours though... I started buying new clothes after my surgery because it was so fun to look good in everything. When I would find something I really liked, I bought multiples of it. Plus on line shopping is so easy. Click, click, and a present gets delivered to your door I've done better in January, but still found myself shopping. Just this week I had an inspiration though... when I see clothes I like, I am just taking a picture of them or of the outfit, and then replicating it with things I already own in my closet. This is fun also. I swear if I had all the money I've spent on clothes since my surgery I could have gone on an extended vacation in some exotic locale. Live and learn right? When we know better, we do better. Good luck to you on your resolution. Have you tried selling your extra items on Ebay?
