Walking around on the legs of your pjs because they are too loose.

Can definitely relate - and at 5' 10" that's usually not the case! I may have to donate my favorite pj bottoms soon for that reason...hate to see them go, but yeaaa!! :D

Or as someone else posted recently, "I'm overweight!" (As their BMI dropped below 30.) I loved that, and hope to post it myself before too long. Specifically, in 22 pounds (but whose counting?). :P

You have gone through all the holes on your first NSV belt you bought at 3 months postop and now you have to buy another new belt.

I like this one! We had ribs last week and I could only eat one I am looking forward to eating two :)

Me too! My wife and I made ribs for company last weekend, (I even did the grilling portion myself), but I only ate one rib with a few roasted veggies on the side. The old full rack is a thing of the past!

The bathing suit shorts that just fit you a few months ago were falling off in the pool yesterday.

I wore a bathing suit and didn't feel huge around other people.

You go to your bariatric support group meeting..... and now you're one of the smallest people in the room! And you're a cheerleader for the "newbies".

When people tell you: "you look exactly like you did 20 years ago in high school."

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.

I know! I want to get a bathing suit for the cruise I'm going on in November, but am having trouble guessing what size to get! I tried on a 10 today (currently in 12/14) and it seemed so tight... but who knows what I'll be fitting in in 2 months?

Okay, a few more:

-Your husband tell you that your work pants look like "clown pants" on you.

-When you get carded buying wine (a small victory in itself) the clerk does a double take between you and your license picture.

-You look forward to exercising, because it's so much easier, and more fun to be active with a body that's 50+ pounds lighter!

-You can go "shopping" in your own closet, because there are so many things in there that haven't fit in so long that it seems like getting new clothes!

Get the smaller one. I bought two bathing suits in April and the smaller one is already loose.
