    When you get to throw out your blood pressure medication, because your blood pressure is too low.
    Also, when your resting heart rate goes from 77 to 64.

    I went clothing shopping today and actually ENJOYED it!!
    It hard to know what size to grab because I still see myself as bigger so I take a whole range. When the size small sweater actually fit me I clapped and did a happy dance!! I could have cried. Spent too much money on clothes today but I so needed them and it was such a treat to spoil myself!!
    I can remember 6 months ago when I hated clothes shopping and the clothes I tried on were always too small instead of too big. I'm so grateful for my sleeve and proud of myself for working hard on this journey!!!
    And...you should have seen my boyfriends face when I showed him my cute new skinny jeans and tight T-shirt. Haha! I told him "they make me feel so skinny". He replied "that's because you are so skinny...and sexy".
    What a difference 4 months can make!!

    This thread is amazing !! I am so happy for every single one of you !! This has just reconfirmed that I am doing the right thing in having this surgery. I'm scheduled for December 17th, and this just gave me the boost I needed to get through the preop diet. Congrats to every single one of you!!

    Hey everyone. Here is me before at 245 and me now at 118. I'm 5'6 and 35 years old.
    I'm definitely at goal of not a bit under weight now. I'm working hard on maintaining and not losing anymore.
    I had surgery about one year ago.

    Tried on dresses the other day, and couldn't find the size I needed in one of them. Asked the fitting room attendant if they had any, and she came back saying, "I'm sorry, miss, we don't have any smaller than a 6, but we may be able to order you a 4." Never thought I'd hear that!!!!!

    This is a BIG one for me. I bought regular calf sized boots (not wide) and did not die after wearing them to a party!
    (Check out the leggings! Lol. I was proud of myself for wearing them outside )

    We have all been where you two are (except for the awful leukemia, so sorry). But the denial, wishing we had done this years before, anticipation, being scared.....but the vast majority have no regrets! I was 57 when I was sleeved and it changed my life.....you two have much to look forward to. If you are interested....read my blog; I kept it faithfully every week for the first year, it might give you an idea of what to expext and inspire you! This October will be my 3rd anniversary and I am still at goal.....(ok, just a few lbs over what I would like to be!).
    Best of luck to both of you.
