I'm glad to read these as, once you get to goal, it can be hard to remember why you wanted to do it in the first place.

I remember having goals when I first started out such as wanting to not put my kid off every time she asks me to go to the pool with her. I did want to go back to ice skating or take up ballroom dancing but later on I changed that goal to doing an Ironman. :thumbup1:

It's nice to be able to tie my shoes without having to sit down, too.

Buying regular clothes in a regular store and looking good in them.

Being off the BP meds. That was a major one for me. I hated taking the pills because of what they represented to me.

I want to be able to cross my legs without having to prop the top leg on something to keep them crossed.

I want to be a hot mamma that my kids are proud of....not that they aren't now, but things change as they get older.

I, too, want to shop at Victoria's Secret.

I don't want to shop at Lane Bryant anymore.

I want to wear all of my cute heels and have my feet not kill me within 30 minutes.

I want to get out of bed without my back and feeting hurting.

I know there are so many other things that I want to do, but these are the things that are pretty high on my list.

What is up with all these girls that want to shop at vicky secrets? I just don't get the appeal. I guess I am just too cheap!

I don't see it either. I'm frugal as well. I can't imagine spending $5-$7 bucks on a 1 pair of panties. . .

You know, I am not even really sure why shopping at Victoria's Secret is so high on my list. I guess it is just because I have never been able to, and just once would like to buy something really feminine and sexy and walk around the mall with that cute little VS bag!

Go buy some perfume or some thing like that at VS -- then you'll have the bag ... they buy your sexy frilly outfit somewhere else less expensive -- Kohl's has really cute stuff and there's lots of lingerie sites online.

I absolutely love Kohl's. They always seem to have the most amazing sales.

It's funny - when I lived in Indianapolis, I could never find anything at Kohl's that I really liked -- now that they are in Las Vegas, it's like my favorite store. Everything always seems to be on sale and their clearances are awesome!

Exactly, the clearances are great. I refuse to spend a ton of money on clothes that I know I won't be able to wear too long. Yet, I can't not buy clothes because work and the general public tends to frown upon me walking around with my pants at my ankles because they have gotten too big. So, I try to only buy clothes that are on sale. When they had their 4th of July sale, I bought several blouses and slacks for less than $10.00 each.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
