Steph, I like your idea about posting them above the scale, but I think I will take it one step further and post it in the pantry and on the fridge. That would be a good reminder whenever that urge to eat something not so healthy strikes.

Well, I just spent the day shopping for my trip next week to my banded dtr's in KS. I was a 3-4X top and 26-28 bottom before WLS. Let me tell you. I bought 16-18 tops and a 16-18 sweat outfit with a "hoodie" mind you. I was flying high. People thought I was crazy. I was turning in circles and "Yahooing" all over the place. (not quietly either) My husbsand just stood there and laughed at me. Was really fun. I didn't buy much because I still have 35-40# to go yet but what a nice feeling. Makes all the effort worth while. What a nice NSV.

*I took a bunch of clothes to the consignment store

*I gave about 20 pairs of pants the next size down to my good friend who has been out of work for six months.

*I bought some clothes on sale the next couple of sizes down and flew through one size before I wore them.

*I bought a beautiful outfit to wear to a cocktail party with my husband's new work people. I've never met them before and I won't feel self-conscious about how I look now. I'm going to wear it to my daughter's wedding on the cruise ship in October too.

*I bought a pair of 'girlie' shoes to wear with the outfit. They are 3 1/2". I can't remember the last time I wore 3 1/2" heels. I've been walking around the house in them to practice walking in them again. lol

*My latest NSV is really a scale victory. I broke my stall and now have less weight to lose than I've already lost. Hooray! (in my very ambitious goal)

I was totally stoked today! I was able to buy bras from a general clothes store paying only $35 for 2 bras! I normally would have to go to a specialty store (1 hour away in the city) and pay around $90 for each bra. had a grin on my face all day from this win! My mum was with me at the time and to see her smile with me was a victory in itself!

excelent day

Hopefully this keeps me on the straight and narrow!!!

Dange, that is a great NSV! Finding bras that fit larger size woman who are well endowed can be difficult and expensive.

Yep.... Bra's were horrible to find! And then I had to buy EXTENSIONS!! Uggggggggg!!

The first shopping trip I went on to a "regular" store was Kohl's and with a good friend I don't see very often, I was trying on a blouse and asking her opinion, and she was kinda nervous at first but she finnally told me I need to "lift" the girls.... So she ran and found me a bra and I couldn't believe it fit... AND WHAT A DIFFERENCE !

The "girls" are definitly leaving me.... but I'm OK with that!!!!:tongue_smilie:

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      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!!!
