Ok, Ok, I'm so excited. I've been stalled just 5 lbs away from wonderland for over a month. I have stopped beating myself up and have just been enjoying continuing with what I'm supposed to be doing. So...................today I go shopping for pants, since all I have been wearing is capri's and it's starting to get a little cooler. I thought I was going to try and squeeze into a size 18 and pray I could get them buttoned but as it turned out, I didn't have to even squeeze into a size 16. I could have almost turned a cartwheel in the store. Woo Hoo, go me. It is so exciting to have a place to come and cheer. Most people just can't seem to understand the victory.

I'm so jealous! haha... I know the feeling though... When I first started this journey I was squeeeeeezing into my 24s. Then a few weeks ago I noticed that m 24s were getting a little big... so I thought :Hmm... wonder if I can fit into a 22 yet?" Once I tried them on I'm comfortably in a 20! Love that! Can't wait til my pant size begins with a 1! My shirts are a 14/16 now too... losing weight is fun :-)

Congrats!

Thank you guys. I started off in a tight 24. I'm only 5' 1", and weighed 263. My surgery date was feb 23 and I'm down 58 lbs. It felt at the time like I would never see this victory and you all know what a struggle it can seel like at times.

I totally understand your excitment. Fitting into smaller clothes is just the best. I think it's as good as, if not better, than seeing the scale move. Keep up the good work!

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
