Not being recognized is pretty awesome. I love the look on people faces. It doesn't happen as much anymore but every once in awhile I run into someone I haven't seen for a year. :) and they crap their pants, stutter and totally freak out.

~Your underwear that once barely made it to your belly button and always rolled down, now almost fits all the way up under your boobs!!

~Your co-workers start calling you "skinny" even though you are still far from it. Just the change in you has them calling you that :)

~Had to buy a belt for my jeans

~Shirts that were once too short now come down and hide my belly.

I squatted down with my 3 year old granddaughter to look at something on the ground and realized that a couple minutes later I was still there....I didn't fall over and my feet didn't fall asleep!

You think there is someone staring at you across the way but its really just an un-recognizable reflection from a mirror!

LMBO! Just as Phat2016 stated, I now need to get more panties as mom use to say wear your good ones outside in case you get in an accident, I would hate for the doctor to see what I'm wearing now. :lol:

I'm scheduled for surgery on Monday, 1/4. I just spent 2 hours reading every single post and I am very inspired by all of the success. Thank you for sharing your beautiful stories. You have made a difference in my attitude and I'm now looking very much forward to Monday and willing to take on the "unknown" post op. Thank you, again.

This thread is wonderful!

-when you work in a psych hospital and the patients no longer put "fat" in front of the names they call you

-when people call you "little" and "small"

-when you can shop at the same stores your friends go to but sometimes still can't find clothes because things are too big

-when you actually accept invites because you no longer feel too fat to be seen in public

-when you're no longer the fattest person in the room

-when guys flirt with me! I still don't understand it most of the time and only later realize hey that guy was flirting with me!

-when your rings and watches slide off

-when you have more clothes that are too big rather than too small

-when you don't mind being in pictures

-when you feel cold instead of sweaty all the time

-when you realize you have ribs, a collar bone, hip bones, and bones in your knees

-when you no longer dread sitting on the floor because now you know you can get back up

-when stepping on the scale no longer makes you cry

-when you have enough energy to get through a normal day

-when you can fit into airplane seats and carnival rides

-when people actually worry you're getting too thin or are jealous of you

-when you can fit into and look good in designer clothes

-when clothes shopping is fun again

-when you're able to limit yourself to a few bites instead of several helpings because you no longer have the "f-it I'm already fat" attitude

Ok, I'm forcing myself to stop here. ????

When you can cross your legs comfortably instead of them being crossed at the knees and your leg keeps falling off your other leg!!

I had surgery four months ago. I went from a size 15/16 in jeans to a size 5/6 in jeans. I have not been this size since high school. I literally cried in the fitting room. My husband had to keep going to the jeans aisle to get a smaller size. After four trips it was finally right at a size 5 jeans. I'm so happy for all the hard work is paying off. I walk six miles a day and take all of my supplements and eat right. Thank you for the tool I was given on August 17th 2015. Thank you to my family for all of the support. My doc has not let me down and I won't let him down. Thank you to dr Seth Judd of ORMC.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
