Recommended Posts

As winter is just about to begin where I live, I got out my winter clothes from storage,and a tight jacket is now a coat...not even exaggerating cant wait to wear it, also so many things that haven't fitted for a couple of years are now a perfect fit! I have a new wardrobe without even shopping :)

So excited today! I ran on the treadmill today for the first time in my life!! I was scared of falling and my butt cheeks felt like they were going to fall off, but I did it!!!

Today I took a pic with my boo for the first time since we started dating. Even though I'm pretty decent looking I felt very conscious about taking pics with him because he has always been in great shape even modeled and did competitive body building. I always feared I wouldn't look good next to his perfect Adonis body. He has never made me feel bad about my weight and has been in my life since I was a larger person. And is my biggest supporter in my fitness and health journey. I couldn't help smiling when I saw that I look small next to him. Made my insecurities disappear. Funny how we handicap our own selves with negative thoughts. And if you don't good for you. I still go to 3x section when I go shopping. But today I'm happy.

I have always wanted boots, but could never find ones that would fit because of my calves and swollen ankles. Today I am wearing leggings and boots in public for the first time ever. Yay for confidence!

That is my same problem. I am 7 weeks post op vsg and just started working out at the gym. 7 weeks I have lost 40lbs. But my thighs and calves are very fat and I can not find boots to fit. Did you do exercises to lose in calves?

Best thing ever is that at 3.5 months since surgery my A1C went from 8.9 to 7.7. I am now only taking 40 units of insulin instead of 200 units. I feel better, wear smaller clothes (no longer in plus sizes) and can finally wear boots.

It has been 10days since my surgery and I am battling with wanting to eat so bad. These liquids are not helping one bit. Anyone has any advice?

Not 100% sure if this is a NSV or a crackdown on underage drinking, but I was carded twice while buying alcohol recently. I'm 36 years old and haven't been carded in at least 5 years! I know I look much better now maybe I'm looking younger?

OHHH where to start, where to start?! I was able to go to the movies and fit between BOTH arm rests COMFORTABLY. I am now in a 2x!!! down from a 5x... Yes, I am going to cheat here and this is (kind of) a scale victory, but I am nearly at my high school weight!!!!!! the lowest I EVER REMEMBER BEING!!!!! I was able to walk my dog down the hill and back up it without being inches of my death (dramatic much?) by the end of the uphill walk. I was breathing hslightly heavy but NOTHING like before. I no longer have shopping anxiety.

I've had a few of these NSVs ...

1-I can cross my legs again, like a lady - not like all awkward and uncomfortable!!

2-I fit so much more comfortably at the movies and with the armrests down ... there's actually room in the seat now.

3-I fit in the stadium seats - and not just barely, but comfortably!

4-My next NSV to find out this week .... how I fit in the airplane seats ... I'll report back after my upcoming trip.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      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
