Wonderful Bob! I absolutely love this thread. My shouts outs so far:

* tossed all my size 2x - believe me, not even the Goodwill would want them.

* fit into Liz Claiborn 16WP jeans - tossed my 22WP - see above.

* able to go 1 hour vigorously on the treadmill and love doing it.

* rewarded myself w/a Sansun slot radio to keep me going while exercising.

* have more energy than I have had in years.

* vow never to wear black again unless it is lingerie.

* stopped caffeine, diet soda, sugar, flour, but haven't we all!

Non scale Victory

My favorite one to date has got to be fitting in the booth at our favorite Mexican restaurant without having to move the table closer to my son. Plus, having lots of room between my belly and the table.

The others:

Seeing all the bones in my feet and ankles

Having just 1 chin

My son wrapping his arms around me and getting excited that he can clasp his hands for a "real hug".

All of my rings and bracelets being too big

Buying regular sized clothes from Old Navy

Having my dermatologist not even recognize me until she read my chart, that was an amazing feeling.

Loving this thread! My favorite thus far is the one I posted about last week. I can no longer buy my clothes from the woman's department at Kohl's. I now can shop in the regular sizes.

I think it's the U-touch that makes husbands jealous. :biggrin0:

Some recent NSVs:

-Some pants I bought two months ago are too big for me now even though I haven't gone down that much on the scale

-The other day I saw a picture of myself and instead of noticing all the imperfections, I thought I looked hot (and tiny)

-Shot up a hill today that would have been a challenge 6 months ago

-My resting heart rate is the same as for a lifetime athlete

Way to go Ruthi! I remember how excited

I was when I fit into my first size 12s.

My biggest NSV ever was when I was talking with my trainer awhile back about

putting a profile up on a dating site. I asked him which box to check, average

or "a few exra lbs." I wanted a man's opinion. He said You're definitely average.

That same day, a man at the gym asked

me how I keep my legs so toned. I was

literally shocked. I just pointed to the machines I use.

Ha! I had the classic just now. I was walking through my living room with my daughter in arms, and could feel my jeans inching down on one side!!!! and then.... wooshka! down around my ankles they went!! *hysterically laughing* and there it is...my first real embarassing NSV (lucky I bought some very neat smalls in a smaller size last week!!!!)

Congrats to EVERYONE!!!

I too LOVE this thread!!

Dange- Thats too funny 'bout the pants!! Good thing you were at home!!

1) I think one of my favorite NSV is being able to paint my toenails!! I could hardly bend over before to even clip them!

2) I can also put my cars seat all the way front- and still have room between the steering wheel and my belly!!! And I can even put down the arm rest now!

3) When going to a restaurant, not worried if I can fit into a booth!

4) Being able to wear summer dresses and feel like a lady!

There is so much more... but thats what comes to mind right now.

Chancie, I love your NSV #4 wearing a summer dress and feeling like a lady. I haven't been able to do that in sooo long. I am hoping for that next summer. How wonderful for you, it's inspiring me. I love that feeling too, and sure do miss wearing summer dresses.

Maybe we should all write these victories down on paper and post above the scale, so when we have a stall, we can look at all our victories, and keep on going.

God bless you guys, you're great!

I have had one so far. I am not wearing womens size clothes anymore. They are too uhhh wide. I am back to regular sizes, no more "W" after the size.

I have an iTouch. I love it. Best thing I ever bought. I highly recomend getting the wi sniffer. It is how I find all the open hotspots.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.
