First off I gotta say I'm soooooo happy for Tiff!!

And "TRIVIAL"????????.........NO WAY!!!! I don't think any of us can say we wern't touched by that statement!!!

"I literally fell asleep in my love's arms. "

I Know I was!!!

Second- I have been having computer problems, so sorry I havnt been around... still got them, so gotta take this back tomorrow if he can get me in......... YUCK.... bad virus going around, but guess I been lucky... this is the first one I've had.

OK.... Now for my NSV!!!!

I worked this week end- and I work for a major retailor.....

I was working away when this woman stopped me... she said I just have to say something to you... well.. I had no idea what she was gonna say but working in retail I thought it was a complaint.

she said "I have been shopping here for a long time and I have seen you forever, I know you;ve worked here a long time

( I have been there 12 years)... and I just I just have to tell you how great you look, you have lost so much weight, and you really look fantastic!!" I was shocked!! I know alot of our customers, but this woman didn't look familar to me... but I was really surprised at how someone could notice things, and she continued to say I just had to tell you ... you really look good.

Talk about a WOW moment.... even customers noticed how big I was!

Anyway.. it made my day!!

I too love this thread!

Chancie, you should be so poud that customers are noticing how good you look! Awesome!

Tiff, I actually cried reading your NSV - I can so relate! I miss the cuddling too.

Even at my age I hope that will change as I start to look more desirable to my hubby.

How nice of you to share that!

This is probably going to seem sooooooooo trivial to everyone else, but I had a great NSV last night.

John and I have never been cuddly when we sleep. #1 I would get so hot that I couldn't stand having him right up on me #2 He's a tummy sleeper with his elbows spread out over the bed, I sleep on my side with a body pillow.

Anyways, last night, he pulls me in super close to his chest, my back is touching his chest, and he wraps his arms around me, like completely around me (that's never happened before), and he nuzzled his head next to my neck and was asleep in a matter of minutes. I laid there just smiling like a goofy kid at a candy store, and I could feel his heart beating on my back. I laid there and actually felt his heart rate slow down as he began to drift off into a deep sleep. It felt so amazing to be that close, and not be hot and feel gross about myself. He had one arm under my head, wrap it up over me and the other arm wrapped around me the other side. I don't think I've ever realized how many "little" things we didn't do because of my weight.

He then started snoring (which he never did before), and I had to move a little because he was right next to my ear. But for the first time in 3.5 years, I literally fell asleep in my love's arms.

That is such a wonderful feeling when something new happens to us, makes you think how far you come!:thumbup: We don't realize all we missed, but now you can make up for it............

They are going to get sooooo pregnant!!!

Ohhhhhhh no no no ! ! ! Not yet, we're waiting until at least late April-Mayish before we even try.

We wrap it up every time without fail.

If it did happen, we would be elated, but we're not trying.

Thank you to everyone.

Chancie, I love your most recent NSV. Keep up the great work ! ! !

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.

Do you know I always thought that W stood for Wide!!! OMG :001_unsure: I been feeling really insulted for years.

Vegas, I also just bought matching bra/panties. My reunion was last night, and I wanted to buy new under garments. They make you feel so pretty, even though nobody else can see them. Well, I found some darn cute matching panties and bras at Fashion Bug for the 1/2 the price at LB's. They are sooo much fun and I am starting to feel attractive again. Oh, and one set is fushia, one is purple, and other teal. I keep them on lingerie hangers because it makes me feel so good to be able to wear these things. LB's 14/16 were too big for me..unbelievable...I never thought that would happen so quickly.

Another NSV..went shopping today at Walmart..need some kitty food and just cruised through the Women's dept looking for bargains..I got dirty looks from the women working there..everything was too big for me. Isn't this world funny..when I was a size 22/24 I got dirty looks for being so big, now I get dirty looks for not being that big. I guess we will just have to get used to it. We are going to get so skinny that we are not going to be able to stand it! LOL

Oh..and started the recycling pile too. Now the clothes that are too big are cute and actually purchased within the last 3 mos.

The clothes I ditched were gross..the elastic was so stretched out on the waistband I had to hold them together with a safety pin..they were polyester, so I couldn't hold a funeral for them, because they wouldn't burn, just would smoke like rubber tires..had to toss them in the dumpster..OH WELL!! LOL

      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!!!
