NSV lately?



Recommended Posts

Since having my TT in September....I tuck in everything. I'm even tucking in my tshirt into my running shorts. My wife can't stand it. I told her I'm making up for lost time....all those years where nothing could be tucked in.

I love it!

Also funny. I can stretch my quads by pulling my leg from behind. Something that a big butt and gator arms always prevented !!

I just experienced the best NSV ever! This just happened...

My 10 year old was playing in the basement, he came upstairs and said, "Mom, I found some pictures of me when I was little and you were in them. You look really different now. Your face used to be so puffy. Mom, you lost a lot of weight, I am really proud of you!". He then came over to me with a smile on his face and gave me a big hug.

My heart melted.

He was only 7 when I had surgery. I asked him if he remembered me when I was big. He said he didn't. I was glad. He also told me I looked really sad in all of the pictures.

We talked for a while about being healthy and about never making fun of fat people. He then asked me how our lives would be different if I wouldn't have been fat. (Where in the world this little guy came up with a question like this is beyond me!) I told him that was a really good question and asked him what he thought. He said,"I think you would have been a lot happier and your face wouldn't have looked so sad in those pictures.".

This was a very touching moment for me, I don't want to ever forget it.

My hubby tried to put my pants on this morning to go let out the dogs. Normally they would be big on him...but today he couldn't fit into them! He was like " wow...they are too small! When did you get so small?"

I just found this thread and have loved reading all of these NSVs! It makes me smile. My newest one was this last week at work. One of my coworkers said "we just keep watching you shrink away" and another one said I was looking "svelte". I never in a million years would have dreamed anyone would refer to me as svelte. Never.

Okay update! Today I needed a belt to wear yes I said a belt. Until last year I don't believe I've ever worn belts. About four years ago someone gave me a beautiful Brighton belt. Until today I could not wear it. Three years nine months later 110 pounds lighter I have it On!

I couldn't even wear it when I reach the goal originally at eight months

Thanks 52 also I think I've whittled down my body size!!! Whoo hoo to me!

Recently elevator doors opened - packed with people from ear to ear

i was gonna wait for the next elevator

someone said something like "come on in, you are little enough" :)

On t'day I looked at the couch with 4 family members sitting - i figured no way could i squeeze in :angry:

my cuz said something like "kathy there is plenty of room here for you" :)

my mom has always been very small, petite

she said she had a couple of blouses i might like to try on with a jean jacket too

i laughed saying - "mom you are so little i'll never fit into your clothes"

but........you guessed it, they fit :o

Athletic... this is one of my favourite NSVs si far. Love this @@CowgirlJane good for you :)

I have been called "athletic" by a couple of people recently. somehow that description of me just thrills me - a word I never imagined I would hear used to describe me for the first time in my life at age 49.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
