...you can actually run up the four flights of stairs that used to have you huffing and puffing after climbing the first two! (And that's just the beginning of your workout.)

You can bathe the dog while sitting on a small child's step up, without your belly choking you and making you pass out from lack of oxygen!!! ImageUploadedByBariatricPal1455591904.507669.jpg

You get asked to sit in the middle all the time in the backseat because you're the smallest.

I don't hear a deep groaning sound from my scale when I weigh myself (it was either the scale or my stomach was too big for me to notice I was stepping on my dog by accident). :)

When men you have known for years start asking you out for dates. My latest two - the produce guy at the grocery store and my insurance guy.

I have known both of these guys for several years.

Did you say yes?
No... I didn't because there's a fireman pursuing me since before my surgery and if and when I decide to go out it will most likely be him first. It's a men in the uniform thing ???? in the meantime I will enjoy getting healthier and enjoy the side effects of looking sexier ????

Update: have started accepting invites for drinks now. First date of course was with the fireman. It was lovely and he has talked about a second date. Also, I had coffee date with another gentleman whom I find very attractive this week. Both these guys have known me since before my surgery. And I had a great time conversing and laughing with both.

get it girlfriend! :)

For me it was yesterday my husband took me out shopping for my birthday and I tried on a size 8 pants and it fit me. I did the happy dance can't remember when I was able to do fit in a size 8. Also I just realized that I am a short in pants I was,never able to fit in short size pants I always got regular or long. This was the best bday gift I gave my self doing the sleeve. :-)

lol i remember trying on an old navy 18 thinking what a great fit...tried on same size months later and it was terrible. turned out my 5'5" self was fitting 18 long (so probably a 20 reg lol)

When you put your clothes in the drier on high heat hoping they will shrink so you can get some more wear out of them! [emoji4]. True story my new jeans are too big after only having them less then a month!!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
