    Might be best to ask your surgical team as you have had a bypass and liveaboard has had a sleeve so absorption will be different.

    140g eye fillet steak, cup of salad made up of baby spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and crumbled feta cheese. Small baked potato. If I am honest I should have stopped after the steak but had some salad for fibre 😁 the sauce is knorrs bernaise sauce very naughty but yummy.

    I was just talking to a friend about this the other day, A friend of hers would barely look at me in the past if I saw her in the shops etc ( small town ) anyway the other day she went out of her way to say hi to me twice in one day and I said to my friend is that because I am not fat now ? Its sad really that people are like this I hope I am not one of them.

    Yeah I am the same was a 2XL now a small. I look at my jeans hold them up and think no way they will fit me but they do even had a shop assistant give me a size 8 shirt I said that won't fit but it did 🤪.I still find it hard to get use to.

    CRA= Clinical Research Associate - I travel to different hospitals/medical centers and review data/methods of clinical trials to ensure that the hospitals are following the rules of the study and ensuring the safety/rights of the patients. CTM= clinical trial manager - oversees the general day to day management of the clinical sites (hospitals/medical centers) for the company running the trial (usually a CRO = clinical research organization - that's the company that the pharmaceutical company hires to run the trials).

    Hmmmm this would lead me to think that you may be experiencing head hunger. “Real” hunger persists and doesn’t go away via distraction. Well, at least that’s what I’ve read and personally experienced. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I have to agree on the new clothes being unexciting. The styles right now are blech, at least where I am shopping. I fit back into a denim jacket from the early 2000s and I am so happy. Not sure it is "in" but I don't care, I love it.

    It's not common at all - it is a big deal! I got excited about my beach towel fitting around me. I will be doing cartwheels when a hotel towel fits around me again. 🙂
  21. Congrats!

    I feel like I am posting a lot on this thread lately, but I feel like in the past month I've noticed tons of changes that make me say: wow, I have lost over 100 lbs!
    I have found myself crossing my legs. I don't do it often, but occasionally I find myself doing it and I am like WTF!
    I tried on a pair of boots that never quite zipped up, and I managed to get them zipped even with leggings on! Granted they are still super wide boots because my calves are really sturdy, but I will take any boots zipping up as a huge win. This would not have happened a year ago.
    I also managed to fit back into some concert shirts from the early 90s - looking at you Pink Floyd, REM and U2! They are not quite able to be worn out of the house, but they are now getting much closer and I think they will fit by the end of the summer. So freaking happy about this!
  22. Congrats!

    I know this is a common one but im particularly excited about it because I distinctly remember being 340 lbs and watching these "progress" videos of other women with towels wrapped around their body, showing how they gradually start fitting into bath towels as they lose weight and I remember feeling so sad and discouraged...like I didn't have it in me to get there too. I'm traveling and in a hotel right now and to my surprise this is the first time a regular "hotel" towel has wrapped all the way around my body without a humongous gap exposing my side and stomach. I am so happy about this I can't even explain it. It just confirms it for me that I can have the things I want, that I deserve them too and am just as strong to fight for them.

    Photo: the first picture is from just a week preop, the second is from today. Yes...I had to censor my booty cheek lol that whole blue part is the towel that didn't close and that towel is bigger than this one I have here.

    I understand. I was a 5 or 6x, and it's still hard to believe I'm a large (or medium!). Sometimes when I'm buying clothes I feel like a total imposter and I'm shocked when they fit!
    It takes a while for our mind to catch up with our body!
