I'm looking forward to not hiding in long sleeve clothes during the hot summer months and everyone looking at my like I'm weird.

I'm looking forward to buying a swimming suit for the first time in a decade.

I'm looking forward to setting a better health example for my daughter.

Getting up and down off of the floor. This is unbelievably demoralizing. It is especially an issue since I teach first grade. I want to shop in "normal" size clothing section. It is more about health and feeling good for me. Looking better will certainly help my self confidence.

I'm being sleeved February 26th.

I'm looking forward to:

Going to China with my sister and mother at the end of April-being able to walk up and down the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and everywhere else for 15 glorious days.

To fit into a pair of jeans that I saved from the last time I was 148 pounds-they are this white wash denim, and back in style-by the end of the year. Lmao!

To wear a fabulous white Cache dress that I already bought for my Seven Sisters college graduations laurel parade in May.

To get back out and date after 5 years of self-imposed exile.

To FINALLY not be the "fat" one in my family.

There are sooooo many more things I'm looking forward to. I have "let go" of so much baggage since beginning this journey. I look forward to continuing on this path as me, just a thinner version.

OMG, just found this thread again. How things have changed in six short months! China was the trip of a lifetime. I didn't swell up, was comfortable walking the many miles each day. At one point it was over 22,000 steps before my counter died.

The jeans will fit in another twenty-five or so pounds. I tried them on the other week and was able to get them up. No where buttoning, and they have NO STRETCH! But, before the end of the year, I'll be posting a pic.

Graduation, I wore that fabulous dress and it fit beautifully. I was happy and proud of ALL my accomplishments.

Still haven't dated, yet. Working on it, writhing the next few weeks, I'll make myself go on at least one. Lol.

And finally, I'm NOT the fat one in the family. My mother, who doesn't know, and won't, called me her "skinny" daughter. It felt wonderful.

I'm still a work in progress, and it is something I'll probably be doing the rest of my life. It's a journey, all right. I am going to enjoy every precious day of it!!!!!

I was sleeved 2/26/15

I have currently lost 102 lbs

Best thing I could have ever done for myself. I'm thrilled for the fact I no longer have to wear stretch waste band pants. Yay. I also can get around and do my own shopping. How are you doing??

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
