LOVE all of these!!!! My NSV's are

*Went from 5-6 shots a day for diabetes to 1 (ONE!!!!)

*From taking 2 orals meds to 1, all for diabetes

*Crossing my legs

*Bending over to tie my shoes or my son's without getting red in the face or feel like I will pass out

*Having my heart rate drop from the 80's to the 60's

*NOT feeling like everyone was looking at me thinking how big I was every time I was in public

*Buying cuter clothes

*Sweating because I want to not because it just occurs naturally from doing not much of anything

*Being able to sit like a kid on my couch (ie feet hiked up, knees near my chest kind of thing).

Finding at least one picture that I think, 'thats not so bad' instead of any photo of myself making me sick to my stomach

That is just a few!!! Can't wait to have many, many more!!!!

My snow pants fit! It's been years. These are overall-style and pretty tight in the abdomen. So happy! Now I can play in the snow, walk outside on icky days like this one, etc. And next year they will be too big. Yippee!

U gave me inspiration that I might buy new ski pants when the old ones got to tight I think I threw them out but now I probably can but a pair :)

NSV went out shopping for a Christmas party and naturally picked up a 3x top. Wouldn't you know it, too big! :) 2x is fitting and not even snug. Who would have thought. 2x would make me smile! So happy to read everyone's NSVs!

I just bought a pair of "because they where on sale" size 18 jeans at Old Navy.. the first pair fit.. no wiggling, no sucking no bending over and doing twists to get the stupid things on. OMG I was SHOCKED I knew I was an 18W but i'd been wearing old jeans and had thought that perhaps they had stretched. I need this to really make me realize I am losing.. I am doing this yes it's slower than I want but I'm Winning this battle. :o

The jean size says it all -- way to go! I am one size down and very happy. Looking for the next on sale so I can have them as an incentive. Or is that a form of torture? This time I know it will work, however -- don't know when but know I'm getting there a bit at a time no matter what.

On Tuesday I saw my GP for my every-three-months review of my bloodwork. My cholesterol numbers have been ideal for the past three months...so no more need for statins! Yay! "Just another benefit to your weight loss," she said.

I was especially pleased as I had just read an article in the NYT's "Health" section about the link between statins and diabetes.

Thanking my lapband once again for helping me do something that I could not have done on my own.

I had to buy a new full length wool overcoat yesterday....went to Jos. A. Bank, in instinctively pulled my size off the rack and tried it on....

I looked like a 8 year old playing dress up with their parents clothes....it was strange....I could not understand why the difference.....

The salesmen measured me, then went looking for my size...said he didn't think they had anything left "THAT SMALL !!!"

Finally found one...the last one in the store......

(I have to brag....Man it looks GOOD! can't wait to wear it tonight)

It's really great to walk into any store, and purchase any clothing items with no problems....the cheapest T-shirt at Wall Mart looks and feels good!

Also, now that I think of it....I Play softball (yes I'm 62 and play with guys lot younger than me) and they were recently ordering jerseys for next spring....I told her (one of the Wives) to order me a LARGE....she looked at me and said "You're kidding, right? You're a Medium at best" I quickly recovered and said it was in case they shrink...she assured me they won't and she put me down for a medium....

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
