Ok, so I had my first 2 nsv's on the same day! First....I had a doctors apt today and I thought I would try on that pair of pants that I bought a few months ago that I hoped to fit one day. When I grabbed them I thought to myself that there was no way that I would be able to zip them up because the last time I tried I couldnt even get them over my fat thighs.So I pulled them up...all the way. I went to pull them together thinking that no way could I zip them up....and yep you guessed it! Not only could I zip them up, but they easily fit on...and looked good!! woo-hoo!

The next was when I went on a hike today with my walking partner. This trail is tuff!!!! It goes straight up hills and is a real workout. The last time I walked it I was huffing and puffing like the big bad wolf. Well, not only did I walk up those nasty hills with ease, but when we got to the straight paths.....I felt like running! Yep I did....me! I ran on the straight aways! It felt great! I havent ran for fun since I was a child, and here I was running, because I wanted to and I had a great big smile on my face.

For the first time in forever I felt like a healthy active person. I cant wait to do it again!

NSV's for me!

I am so loving my sleeve :)

This is such an inspiration to me!! I am getting the sleeve in January if everything works out. I am worried and anxious. Your getting those jeans on I can fully relate to, cannot wait to share that moment with you.

Thank you my sleeve buddies! I totally look forward to coming on here every night and being able to offer words of inspiration, as well as find a little of my own! I was able to go with my friend today to get her referal for the sleeve. She was feeling nervous about talking with her doctor about it so I went along with her. Her doctor was wonderfully supportive. She cried after the appointment. It was so wonderful to be there with her in the start of her journey. I look forward to being there for her as well as others on here.

Thank you all again!

Thank you so much for sharing your NSVs! There have been so many times that I've tried on jeans and haven't been able to pull them up over my thighs -- it would be fantastic to be able to try on those same jeans and zip them up. Very inspirational!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
