I've got my first!

After a mirror situation assessment, I'm starting to realize my eyes aren't as small as I thought - they are just sinking in fat. :) Starting to emerge...

Buying regular size clothes that did not come from a plus size store. It really showed me how far I have come already! Great feeling!

Well my journey started in January 2011 I weighed 274 pounds at the time of my surgery I am currently 53 by July 2011 I had already lost 100 pounds and then by the end of 2011 I actually met my goal weight which was originally 140 but then six months later I finally reached 132.5 the journey hasn't been as easy as I thought I do believe they need to do a little bit more in-depth conversations regarding the mental health portion of the surgery and how it affects your entire you know mental and physical status I believe it that probably would've helped a little bit however I mean a lot of life changes within a short period of time after surgery so anyway as of today 2015 I'm fabulous I'm add a great weight my body is healthy as much as it can be I'm happy I don't really understand the whole single thing and being thin thing however I'm learning it was the best decision I've ever made even though it's been kind of traumatic to recover.

Here's a first for me! I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night and was shocked to feel cold Water on my toosh!! Someone left the seat up, and my booty went in! Lol I should have been pissed, which I was at first, until I realized my butt had been too big for far too long; that hadn't happened since I was a little girl!! Lmbo!????

I bought size 14 pants today! I haven't been below a 16 for over 15 years. Started at a 20-22W in June. I thought the size was wrong so I tried other 14s on and they fit too!

Wonderful nsv here. I love to hear about them.I agree with roux2011, it is definitely a mental trip. I am still a for addict. One of my nsv is getting into a size 14\16 pajama shorts. That's crazy. Sometimes I see body and can't believe it. I still have a few pounds to lose but I am happy with my progress thus far.

I have two. 1. Yesterday, I took my jeans off -- without unzipping or unbuttoning them! I just slipped them right off!

2. Today, I didn't have any clean clothes for work. I saw a dress hanging in a dry cleaning bag that I had cleaned a long time ago so I could sell it at a consignment shop because I figured I'd never fit into it again. Lo and behold, I tried it on and it fit! It's a size 12!!!! The last clothing I bought was 2X!

I was in Chico's today looking at the clearance racks. The sales lady came over to me and said "You're at the wrong end. You're probably a 0 or a 1! (their sizes are different - I think a 0 is like a 4/6). Didn't buy anything there, but I did buy a size 6 skirt and a size small sweater at Marshals. Gotta say, shopping is surreal.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
