When you're daughter say's, "Who's that lady in the picture with me, Mommy?" And you quickly reply, "It's me!" and she totally disagrees, "No it's not."

People who don't know about the WLS say "How do you stay so skinny?"

People who do know about the WLS say "You're so tiny!"

You squeeze behind seats, down crowded aisles and through barely opened doors.

You sit sideways in the chair that used to stick to you when you stood up.

You stay the same size so long, clothes actually wear out instead of you growing out of them.

You are comfortably full on a reasonable amount of food, even years after surgery.

I really like this one, that you can stay the same size of of clothes for so long, never happened to me since I was 25, in the past 13 years, I went up from 38 to 48, Now it's moving downward, one size at a time. now I'm satisfied in size 44. My goal is staying in sizee 38-40.

You find yourself posting way more pictures of yourself on Facebook than you ever have before.

You can't buy clothes on clearance for the season that just passed because you dont know what size you will be next year.

Omg this made me laugh out loud. Here's my variation. I'm one of those embarrassing moms who carries her phone in her bra, on the side. Why? Because I only wear stretch pants that have no pockets. I know I've had WLS because I can't fit my phone in my bra anymore without it being visible. Smaller bra. Not as much room. Phone sticks out.

Yesterday I panicked after leaving a restaurant. I couldn't find my phone. I searched my bra. I searched my purse. I searched my car. My daughter dialed it and my butt rang. Mom, you seriously didn't check your pocket first?

I forgot I had pockets in my new shorts.

Life is good.

I can finally wear heals for long periods of time and be able to walk around in the city and not get tired and look sexy.

I can actually make my foods last longer than ever after the surgery.

I am able to cross my legs cause my thighs are becoming thinner. I couldn't even cross my legs before.

1. When you think about eating something before you eat it.

2. When everytime you have get togethers someone comments on how much more weight have you lost.

3. You can wear spandex lol - (yoga pants) & you don't look like a stuffed sausage.

4. You don't have to wear jackets or cardigans to cover up all those bulges.

5. Your pants are longer.

6. When a random guy on the street says "nice ass" lol (true story :) )

You get a lap band adjustment and are grateful for two days of liquids because it will move the scale down.
