Getting off meds. Doing anything active with my family .... kiddos love to go on bike rides, hubby wants to go kyaking, and I'd love to go for a jog with my oldest. Losing the pudgy look. Wearing dresses again. I wear shorts, go swimming, and take pictures with my family now, tho I know I look overweight ... I'm actually surprised each time I see myself in pictures because I do not feel like I look ... so I'm looking forward to looking the way I feel. I got over a lot of self esteem issues in the last two years. Learned to love who I am, as I am. I think this will help tremendously after I have wls. Can't wait!

I'm looking forward to:

Getting more active with my one year old son! ????❤️

Being the REAL me by shopping and buying clothes that I've always dreamed of wearing!

Having my fiancé tell me I'm sexy and feeling good about myself when I look in the mirror.

Trying new things like yoga, hiking (longer distances), etc.

Having people stop in their tracks and stare bc I'm so beautiful lol (hoping, anyway lol)

????

What's amazing is that I can shop in my own closet again. I am wearing things that have not fit me in 8 years. It is truely amazing, even when I stall I am seeing a difference.

Love this topic!!

Ok here's my list...

-SHOPPING IN NORMAL SHOPS!

-Sitting comfortably without needing to hide my tummy.

-Sitting in chairs with armrests and not watching the fat spill out from the sides.

-Not being breathless when I do any kind of physical activity.

-Taking full body pics instead of face selfies.

-Walking down the beach in my bikini.

-No double chin!

A bikini for the first time in my life, dainty ankles and wrists, my cheek bones prominent (have high ones in my bloodline but mine have always been hidden), clavicles defined, smaller fingers, flying comfortably and being able to sit at a table in a restaurant (I usually insist on a booth before) without being paranoid everyone is staring and judging.

I just wore a bathing suit today for the first time In twenty years. It was a tankini. I looked cute I think, even if it's middle aged lady cute.

        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!
