  1. Me and the (almost-16 yr old) Kid were weighing ourselves yesterday and I realized that our current COMBINED weights is LESS than what I weighed on the day I had wls.

    Craziness.

  2. So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.

    This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄

    Trolling over, Kid.

  3. I think i just spent the entire morning plus a couple more hours on here.

    My name is ms.sss and I am a BP forums-aholic.

  4. I really thought we had put all the "you are so skinny, are you sick" comments behind us.

    Apparently not.

    My mom, MY MOM! came over today with the specific intention to tell me that she thinks I am too skinny and to stop losing weight.  I had dropped off some dessert a her place the other day and she said she had to come over to tell me that she is worried because she thinks that I am even skinnier than over the Xmas holidays.

    First, I stopped losing weight 6+ months ago.

    Second, I am actually 6 lbs heavier than I was over xmas (I had lost some weight after my PS, and have since gained it back), so I don't know what she is talking about.

    Third, I look awesome.

      I hear you girl. And when it comes from your mum it seems so much worse. She knows how you’ve struggled in the past. I had to deal with this post Christmas from my mum & my aunt. I mean it’s not like we’ve got bones sticking out, we’re in our healthy BMI range and we’re not giants. Just like we have to come to terms with our new reality, they have to too.
      PS - actually watched some of the Aust Open yesterday. My mum & I watched the Barty/Kenin match whilst on the phone together. 😜 we’ve been known to watch cricket this way too.

      ms.sss

      Yep! They all have to accept our awesome-ness already!!

      ...I caught just the last half of Barty/Kenin, there were many a yells at my house for this match as well - I have grown to love Barty 😢

      I got that too once i stopped losing but added about 10-15 and the comments went away lol I think its just such a drastic change that people cant help but say it

  5. @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

      I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

  6. I was on full-on lazy mode and totally binge watched "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" this weekend.

    LOL. 2 seasons in less than 2 days.

  7. Mr. at a client site, the Kid at school.  FINALLY!  After 2+ weeks I finally have the house to myself! #yay

  10. My Day 3 Plastics Post-op Update...

     

  11. One year ago today I had my VSG surgery.

    I wrote up a little blurb to commemorate the occasion.  Read it here:

     

  12. So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).

    Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).

    But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Why? You worked hard! You can do it!

  13. I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.

    Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

      HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

      Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

    2. 2Bsmaller18

      2Bsmaller18

      Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

    3. 2Bsmaller18

      2Bsmaller18

      I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

  14. Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

    1. FluffyChix

      FluffyChix

      Join a running club!!! Woot!!!

  15. RE: the running/training

    Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.

    In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.

    The distance increased, then the speed.

    Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.

    And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)

    Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

    1. Krestel

      Krestel

      Thanks for the feedback. I got the 5k walking everydy thing down and now I just need to start jogging parts of it. It feels like an interesting experience so far. (I can only say interesting because I'm not all that positive about it, but Im sure Ill get there.)

    2. Krestel

      Krestel

      hahaha...I have the same thing about going out. I know that I like walking (and so do my dogs), but getting out the door is more difficult than the walk itself. /sigh

  16. I am officially the awesome-est person in my universe.  I. RAN. A. 10K. THIS. MORNING.  *drops mike*

  17. Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.

    @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

    3. FluffyChix

      FluffyChix

      Yay you!!! You're a rockstar girlie!!!

      Holy heck!! My emoji is a gobsmack to me. :) I'm not confused, but forever after this I will use that emoji as it should be used...to indicate surprise, shock, gob-smackedness! :D

      Huge congrats!!! I am not worthy!! SOOO not worthy! Amazing! Inspiring!

  18. So this morning I RAN my first continuous 5K ever.  On vacation, no less!!  I had gone to the hotel gym with the intention to do 45 mins of run/walk on the treadmill when I crossed paths with a group (led by hotel staff) who were going off-grounds for a group run.  They convinced to join them and I totally did it!!!  Funny because if I were alone I would have gave up at 3km...the presence of the others brought out my "if-you-can-do-this-so-can-i-dammit"  attitude..gonna join them again on Friday!

    1. FluffyChix

      FluffyChix

      Congrats! Bonus points if it was on a beach in a bikini! :D

  19. Um...so all this time I thought I had a lumpy lower abdomen due to stubborn fat deposits or uneven fat loss.  Turns out two of those lumps are my hip bones.

    1. AZhiker

      Ha ha! Good for you!

      Those hip bones really are a stubborn deposit😂

  20. So just came back from my first mini-vacay since getting into maintenance.  I didn't have a food nor body scale, so I was winging it.  I estimated to have taken in well over 2000 calories for each of the 4 days we were road trippin'.  I was fully prepared to see a noticeable weight increase upon our return due to the higher volume and calorie rich foods I was eating.  Plus I didn't poop the entire time, so all the food is technically still in me, lol.

    Imagine my surprise when I got on the scale this morning and it read 116.2 😲

    The exact same weight I was the morning I left.  WTF?

    1. FluffyChix

      FluffyChix

      Congrats and welcome back! We missed you!

  21. Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

      LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

    3. sillykitty

      sillykitty

      Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

    4. FluffyChix

      FluffyChix

      Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

  22. Worst. Dumping. Ever. Last. Night.

    So I thought I would throw caution to the wind and sample some of the fruit salad that my mom brought over for the fam. I dutifully portioned out 1/8 cup of the stuff.  I figured the sugar in the fruit may be in issue, but come on, 1/8 cup?  Barely a couple bites, should be fine.

    Before I could finish it, my heart started to feel like it was beating out of my chest.

    *** TMI Alert: continue reading at your own risk ***

    Ended up in the washroom barfing. And while I was barfing, I had to :70_poop:.  I was literally alternating ends to face the toilet until it felt like there was nothing left in my insides.  I swear more came out of me that I even put in it over the last 3 days.

    I laid down with my forehead on the cold bathroom floor tile for like 20 minutes afterwards to recuperate.  Then Mr. (my hero :1007_hearts:) carried me to the shower and helped me crawl into bed.

    So yeah, I'm feeling pretty shitty this AM.

      And on a lesser note: LOVE the NSV that he was able to pick you up off the floor and carry you to the shower! :) Um, hopefully NOT firemen's style! ;) haha

      Yikes! I'm going to remember your experience. Fruit Salad....maybe not such a good idea.

  23. Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

  24. So I went to a wedding last night and definitely consumed more calories than I ever had since before my 2-week pre-op diet.  I didn't have a scale nor labels to scan, so I estimated everything in MFP, and logged in about 2000 calories.  I didn't really eat much, so most of this was comprised of booze (red wines and gin & sodas) and 3 spoonfuls of creme brûlée.

    Well, either I over-exerted myself with all the dancing, or I was drunker than I planned, or I possibly experienced my second-ever dumping episode (I say possibly because I'm still not sure the first one I had was really dumping nor am I positive that last night was one either...).  I was sweating at the level of my pre-op days, and barfed for like 15 minutes.  Luckily, I felt sooo much better after the barfing that I got to enjoy the rest of the night, so all was not completely lost.

    I have another wedding to go to this month, and will do better.  Pinky swear.

      Hey Ms.sss,

      You are human and you enjoyed yourself. I am glad that you were able to identify the problem and you were ok. Yites!!!! Another wedding? You will do just fine...….Pink Swear.
