How about some NSVs!?!?



Recommended Posts

I am 5 weeks post op and when I went into Home Depot the line closest to my parking space was LONG so I walked to the other end of the store to the self-checkout and out the delivery bay and the long trec to my car by the garden center. Pretty sure I would still be waiting in line and it felt great to walk and not feel like the weight of the world was on me!!! Oh and I didn't lean on my basket the whole time! Yay for me!!

Today was exciting for me because my son and I worked out together today, and we did exercises his football team did during practice. We RAN around their football stadium, including the bleachers. I haven't ran anywhere in 20 years. Then we lifted weights together, and his workout was challenging. Then later in the evening we ran around our neighborhood. I think I'm becoming addicted to running.

I went on vacation last week and was able to ride a rollercoaster with my son and I fit!!! No more embarassing trips out of the ride because I couldn't fit or get the belt buckled!!!

The best NSV moment for me is realizing the skinny lady in the mirror is me, and men run to open doors for me.

When I was still in the hospital and they had me up and walking, I noticed I was feeling really POWERFUL.

Now I am only 17 days post-op and I feel like I can do anything.

My diabetes is no longer an issue, and nothing can hold me back.

I went to my PCP today, and she was astounded at my success. But I was so excited when the nurse was taking my blood pressure, and did not reach for the extra large cuff. She was able to use the normal adult size cuff!! That felt wonderful!!!!

Been working on weight loss these past three months.

Still don't have a surgery date but I'm guessing it'll be in December or January.

Was getting dressed this morning and noticed I'd just skipped a couple spots on the belt. That was a nice reminder that things are going okay.

Today I went to my family reunion and most of my family didn't even know who I was at first. They would walk right past me, until I spoke to them.

The nurse had to use an extra small cuff to take my bp.

I looked down and low and behold, my thighs don't touch. I have a thigh gap!

The nurse at my go thought I was the wrong patient because I'd lost 100 pounds.

Lots of people don't recognize me.

Asking the sales ladies at stores to bring smaller sizes.

Getting around a table without anyone having to move their chair.

Wearing a bikini and swimming with my kids.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
