And on that theme...

When you're standing with your hand in your pocket and realise that your hand is in your back pocket!!!

You've lost so much weight that your pockets are now meeting up on your hips...

Perhaps it's time to but some new pants... :mellow:

When no one who hasn't seen you in the last year recognizes you.

Speaking of putting your hands in your pockets, you reach into your pockets more because your blouse/shirt is tucked in!!

@@loriemoms - yeah no kidding. Most of my shirts HAVE to be tucked in because they would be down to my knees if they were not. (Note to ladies...many big guys need X-Large shirts so their shoulders and arms fits, not their waist)

You go shopping and literally walked out of your own shoes due to them being to wide now!

When you're more comfortable with your pants buckled around your waist, than you were when they were buckled under your belly.

When you have to use a belt to keep your pants up and not your belly.

My boys 8 and 10 realised yesterday that mommy look different, it only took 20kg, I had a lower bmi before surgery so need to loose about 15kg more. My boys was so upset they cried, they don't understand why I want to be different. Although it was lovely I have to admit that it made me realise that kids love us for us, they don't see a size!

This is a BIG one for me. I bought regular calf sized boots (not wide) and did not die after wearing them to a party!

(Check out the leggings! Lol. I was proud of myself for wearing them outside :o)

I hadn't seen a friend in person ( we communicate via social media) in at least 8 years. And as she could not stop telling me how "tiny" I am. It made my night!

I wore leggings outside for the first time and wasn't stared at! Yaaaay!

Tried on dresses the other day, and couldn't find the size I needed in one of them. Asked the fitting room attendant if they had any, and she came back saying, "I'm sorry, miss, we don't have any smaller than a 6, but we may be able to order you a 4." Never thought I'd hear that!!!!!

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
