Betsy, size 8???? You go girl!! Dang, I remember when you first showed up here at LBT! Wowser.

Leigha, me too with the necklaces. I have a Tiffany heart necklace DH got me for Christmas a few years back. When I got it, the heart would stick straight out, it was so tight. I couldn't wear it. I was so disapointed!

Now it falls below the little nook in my neck between my collar bones. Right where it should!

Other little things...

Wearing shorts and they don't ride up between my legs.

Cheekbones. I still don't have much of a chin..genetics, drat!

I discovered I actually have tiny wrists. I always thought I had big bones.

Sitting in an airplane and realizing my thighs weren't touching both armrests.

In a restaurant, I don't feel as though everyone is looking at my plate.

In the grocery store, I don't feel as though everyone is looking at my cart. Even if I have a little bit of junk food in it.

I was so excited when I discovered that a regular bath towel wrapped around me with inches to spare--that was a great day! I also love being all the way submerged in the bathtub.

But the size 8 petite jeans I bought yesterday were probably the best NSV to date.

Awesome! The towel thing will probably never work for me...At one stage I got so sick of my towel not fitting around me that I went and bought a jumbo one to make myself feel better... :huh2:

I ditto this one!! LOL!

But crossing my legs is something I realized this weekend. I had forgotten that I couldn't do it, or it just wasn't comfortable, but not anymore!

Not having the shorts ride up and my necklaces fit better--I don't need to use the chain extenders anymore!

Maybe so, but I am not embarrassed or ashamed any longer! Look all you want. :)

I used to always be self-conscious about food, whether in a store or restaurant. Even if I had healthy choices in front of me. I felt people were judging me. I have let go of those feelings.

I can tie my shoes without getting out of breath. I used to have to sit down to tie them. Now, I just bend over while standing up.

Wow, 20 lbs already in a month? That's great! I am having my surgery on Wednesday and am a little nervous about it.

How was the recovery for you? I hear a lot of different stories and I am so afraid of being in agonizing pain. I'm just so used to doing everything for myself that it is going to be really hard for me to let someone else take care of me a little bit.

I'm only 2 1/2 weeks out from surgery. Last year at this time I bought myself a beautiful ring that was a little tight. The jeweler offered to size it for me, but I was too excited to wait, so I said I'd bring it back. Well, within about 3-4 months (earlier this year) I could no longer put it on. I let it sit while I made my decision about surgery. Now I've lost 16 lbs and the ring fits again...and I probably won't have to get it sized after all!!! That was my "first" ah-ha moment!! :-) Looking forward to more like you all described! :thumbup:

I can fold up on the floor in a fallen leaf position and put my forehead on the floor. I can shop in the "normal person" part of the stores. I CAN GET ON MY HORSE WITHOUT A MOUNTING BLOCK!!!!!!!!!! :lol::thumbup::thumbup:

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
