    redhead_che got a reaction from qianmij in Post Op Bra Size   
    Can I just say I never thought I’d be going from a 38G to a 32D? 32 band size, what? 😳
    But rant wise, I’ve gone through 4 sets of bras since starting this journey 9 months ago. I just bought 3 new ones in the hopes the girls are done shrinking at 5lbs from goal 🤞 But when the bra gap game gets too strong...gotta cave and shop!
    Anyone else enjoying the shelling out for new bras every 2 months or so? 😂

    I never thought I'd let myself get to goal (120) and then regain. But like so many others before me I know what I have to do to get back on track. As of now I am 170. 2 years out last month. January last year I was 125lbs and loving life. It has been an incredibly rough year, but I can't let that be an excuse. I'm no expert, but that's pretty significant regain I had the surgery for my health and now I'm getting back to where I was at the beginning at an astonishing rate. My food choices are terrible, I put alcohol and soda back in my "diet" and I went back to snacking. Ugh!
    Anyone else in a similar boat? What has helped you besides getting back to the basics? Is there anything in particular that has helped you the most with losing the regain? Any support and encouragement is welcome--I've been pretty down on myself lately. But I know I can get back to at least a healthy weight. This time I'll probably aim for 130-135. I came back here since this community was so incredibly supportive to me early post op. And for that I thank you all!

    Yesterday was my birthday and my "nutrition" for the day included a Protein Shake in the morning.....and then alcohol. No food. Because I'm really smart. (not)

    redhead_che got a reaction from NewMeDay in 5 pounds to my goal!   
    5 pounds until I reach my goal weight of 127. Surgiversary November 28th 2018 so plenty of time left to kick these pounds to the curb.
    And as always I thank my ex for allowing me to keep using this before photo since it’s the only one of my almost highest weight I have! 😂

    I had Hair loss up until 11 months, but I had thick hair to begin with and I feel like it actually improved after the LOSS process stopped and I kept getting healthier. I'm over a year post op now.

    This may be too far out for you, but people come to this facility from all over for surgery so I'll throw it out there. I went through The Bariatric Center of Kansas City and had amazing success and I was also self-pay and it was easy breezy. Started the orientation process in mid September '17 and my surgery was November '17
