You cross your arms a dozen times a day without resting them on top of your boobs just because you CAN.

When you are in the dressing room and realize that the size 8 is too big.

You try on the favorite clothes that you used to wear before owls & they really hang off , or trying a size on at the store that you think will fit you & you have to get a smaller size.

You're on a "planes, trains and automobiles" trip ( a hilarious John candy movie) and the whole trip is better, easier and more fun than any one I went on before WLS ! I

( I'm on an Amtrak as I write this, yesterday was "carry a 50 lb backpack and 2 other things and make a dang quick fast walking connection between 2 trains " !! Hubby said " I can't believe you just did that ! You're a trooper !!" Thank you Lap Band ! )

When you've finally reach a normal BMI and are amazed you've reached it after 28yrs! :-)

At restaurants you get to order just an appetizer and it totally fills you up!

You no longer want to go to a buffet because you can't eat your money's worth!

Your foodie friends are a little irritated when you finish your meal way before them.

You don't have to shop in the plus size stores!

You can easily walk through the mall where the really cute clothes finally fit you!

I could go on and on....

You can't stop looking at/examining your collar bones, wrists, ankles, ribs and hip bones cause you've never actually knew they existed.

Your bras cost less, which is a good thing because your buying them every two months or so

You throw away food with little guilt

Your stomach and thighs look like melting silly putty and you couldn't care less!

Weight loss ads are no longer intriguing, but profoundly annoying.

Cameras and mirrors are now your friends

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
