    amandamellor18 got a reaction from Orchids&Dragons in Non Scale Victories   
    NSVs are amazing - my surgery was 5/31/18, I reached my surgeons goal on Sunday. Down 95lbs and ready to maintain. I bought all new pants In January and they are all too big now. I am now a size 8! Never in my life have I been an 8! I was an 18-20 when I had the surgery.
    I can feel actual bones under my skin - that’s new.
    my goal was to be the weight I was when I was married 15 years ago. I am 25lbs past that. I have never felt this good. The best decision I have ever made for myself

    thats wonderful!! I will admit my exercise column needs a lot of work. My skin situation is odd - not sure what I expected but I’m kind of looking like my 84 yo mother, lol.
    But I don’t care! I feel amazing and have energy like I did in my 30’s.
    I clearly was in denial about my appearance because people that I haven’t seen in a while are letting me know I looked like a different person.
    I wish you the very best on your Quest. Maybe we can stay in touch and root each other on?

    amandamellor18 got a reaction from Imnotpicky in Was there a pivotal moment that made you say I’m doing this?   
    I decided after my GP told me he didn’t see any other way to lose the amount I needed to others than WL surgery. Tried the diets, pills, etc - you know the drill. I was turning 50 and I was tired of failing and being obsessed with how heavy I was. It was all I thought about - that and food lol.
    THE best decision I have ever made. I have energy like I did in my 30’s. My cholesterol and the rest of my numbers are like a 16 year old, said my doctor.
    My surgery was 5/31/18 I was 5’2” and 220 lbs, today I am 134 and I couldn’t be happier

    It was 2 things that happened within a week of each other. I work on the fifth floor and we had an emergency drill which I had to go down 5 flights of stairs ( I actually thought about staying behind on the 3rd floor and hope no one would notice). All I could think about was if this was a real fire not only would my life be in danger but anyone trying to help me would be in danger because of my weight! The following week (December 2018) I had to go to my daughters college graduation for her bachelors degree . It was an indoor stadium and I could not fit in the seat. I had to squeeze myself side ways, half hanging out of the chair and praying that the seat didn't break. I was in so much pain by the time my daughter got her diploma that the tears were for my pinched legs and not so much for the special moment and I was so glad when it was over! I promised myself in that parking lot after taking the most horrible pictures that by the next year for her last graduation I will fit in the seat!

    My heaviest in 2007 (260lbs) to yesterday in my oversized onesie (131lbs). I have a mild cold so I’m just “messy hair” lounging for a couple days. Retired life!

    Y’all know how they preach that weight loss won’t solve all your problems?? Well it’s solving mine. My confidence has grown, I’m happier, I’m doing better financially, I’m making better decisions. I’m actually in college and my ambition is driving me where as before I would freak out and not be able to handle it. Weight loss is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I’m down 75.4 lbs, I’ll be 6 months post op on the 21st.
