But I Do Wanna Be A Size 6



Recommended Posts

I want to lose the last 15 years so bad! I went from an 8 (I was a 4 or 6 until I had two children' date=' then I was an 8) to 20/22 - I don't even recognize this body.

I already realize that excess skin is growing to be an issue...[/quote']

re: quote on "body recognition" - Had my surgery at the end of December 2012. Was looking at some old pics on FB from May 2012. My surgeon never took before pics and I don't really have that many where I am not hiding behind children, so I found one from May where I am with my two sisters. I knew I was big, but I am starting to forget that I was that big. And, even when I was that big with a life long weight issue, the interior me never felt like I was that big because I was still trying to be active. So weird. Just glad the surgery has brought me down 90 lbs.

AMEN!!! I wanna be a size 8 sooo bad! I want my tall boots and high heels! I wanna wear tight jeans tank tops and cowboy boots to summer festivals and be stared at cuz my a $$ is so damn fine ;-) yes for once I wanna be looked at! And I wanna look like that for a looooonnng time so yes, for my health too! I really I wanna be 160 and I'm starting at 300 has anyone lost that much and how much does one weigh at a size 8?

when I was updating my ticker, I realized I have my HW incorrectly... the most I weighed in earlyer 2012 was 284.... I had surgery in Aug 2012...here it is Aug 2013 and I am a size 6!! HOT DAMMIT!! 152 pounds.... 5'7.5"...SIZE 6

I was about 160 when I was in a size 8

I had no co-morbs.... the reason for my surgery was pure & simply vanity.... and dammit I made it!! I look good...I feel good and I am happy!

now I do NOT want to be a size 4 or 2 or 0.... there are just not that many women in my culture who want to be that thin...size 6 is pressing it...

I didn't have any co-mobidities, either, but I was very obese and I was afraid of developing co-morbidities. For me, it still is more about health. Wish I was a few inches taller, though. I am about 148 and a size 12, because I am 5'3.5". Congrats on getting to your size 6, though.

Did anyone actually get "taller" after the sleeve? I feel like being so fat has kinda smooshed me down over the years and when I starting gaining I was only 18 and 5'5". Either way it's nothing a pair of heels can't fix :-) I am doing this surgery because I NEED to, being in constant pain physically and emotionally combined with starting to snore is scary. Getting my sexy on is just a major bonus.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
