Realizing that knee high boots do/will fit me this fall and receiving multiple compliments on my size M dress. My dad pointed out when I kept getting them that no one ever commented on my clothes pre op.

I'm a teacher and for the past 2 years I couldn't cross my legs under the lunch table. I did it the other day without even realizing it for a minute...but when I did realize it I wanted to stand up and shout it to my class!'

I got a notification from paperback swap that one of the diet books on my wish list was available. Guess I don't need that now!!

I can so relate to this! Only after surgery did I realize how much of my time was previously spent in learning about the best diets.

I guess I now spend that time on VST instead :)

I went shopping this weekend and decided to see what the Loft has available. I have never been able to buy anything in that store because they only go up to a size 16.

Well guess what? I finally fit into their clothes. I bought a dress for work (size Large) and a sweater jacket ( size Large). Yahoo!!!!

My thrilling NSV (which demonstrates how lame I am!) is using the dryer. I hadn't ever used it for fear that my clothes would shrink.

That is funny. I still hang all of my clothes up besides jeans and slacks.

Buying a pair of size 12 jeans and a large dress from old navy. I use to be a 22. Also I started the couch to 5k program and today I completed week 4. I tried a new spot for running and most of it was uphill and I did it! Felt amazing afterwards!!!!! I am 8 weeks out and down 44.5 pounds.

I went jogging yesterday for the first time in awhile and I suprised myself at how much my stamina has increased since losing weight. I was able to push myself and go longer than before!

I was doing my laundry last night and noticed 2 things:

1. All of my exercise clothes were sweaty which is why I was doing laundry in the middle of the week

2. I looked in the basket and thought, "whose clothes are these?" They seemed so small, so not my clothes! But they were my clothes, and I can really wear them!

This is a bit silly, but I realized that I now go into a normal sized bathroom stall without turning sideways or fighting to get the door closed.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
