I look forward to not having chub rub when wearing a dress or a swimsuit, being able to not get winded when walking very far, hopefully sharing clothes with my daughters, being able to go to Disneyland without being the first one to poop out for the day, being skinnier than all of my obese siblings, not taking blood pressure meds, not being so tired, keeping good control of my MS with lifestyle and diet, and on and on......

I've met nearly all my NSVs so I'll not bother to post them. I just wanted to comment here that whatever you are looking forward to, know that you can have it all. I've been lucky enough that it's happened to me so I know that it can happen to you all as well. Good luck!

My answer to this is endless.......

less pain, not be worried what seating will be like every place I go, be able to rid in any car in any seat with a seatbelt, go on rides in an amusement park, not to be stared at like im a freak or monster by kids in public places, ride in an airplane, enjoy my picture taken, cross my legs, wear a dress, go for a jog, play on the floor with my niece, actually get the jobs I deserve and not be overlooked because they assume Im lazy, use the stairs instead of elevators everywhere, buy clothes in stores and not online, wear shoes other than sneakers, wear bracelets, actually fit in something that says "one size fits all", use the regular blood pressure cuff, wear an ankle Bracelet, have an umbrealla actually keep my ass dry in the rain, fitting in an innertube center at the waterparks, go through the drive-thru alone for my family and have them not assume its all for me, wear tank tops so I can get rid of this farmers tan, get a massage and not worry if they have portable tables that will hold me,.......................... my list could go on and on and on.

Here are a few things I was looking forward to and can now do: cross my legs comfortably, go running, wear my wedding ring.

Things I'm still looking forward to: running a marathon, going zip lining, wearing single digit sized clothes, have a normal BMI.

I would like to not be the fattest person in the room.

My oldest daughter is embarrassed because I'm so fat. She has never said it to my face but I know. I want my kids to be proud that I'm their mom.

Oh sweetie...my heart breaks for you. How brave of you to post this. My children might have been embarrassed but I'm not sure. What I do know is that they were worried. I'm the only parent they have left since their father passed away and I've since found out that they were very worried that I would die from my obesity. They no longer worry about this and the best best best NSV I probably got was when my youngest asked me to be guardian for my new grandson. That would nave never happened 150 lbs. ago.

I have two lists.

1) things I have gained already:

-way more confidence

-shopping in "normal" plus size departments instead of only Catherine's or online

-my feet have already shrunk

-I Dont get as winded

-I fit in booths at restaurants and seats at ballgames

Things I look forward to:

- being an "athlete"; I will start training for an ironman once I have about another 60 lbs gone

-look like I belong with my personal trainer husband

-scuba diving and other "skinny person " activities on vacation

-shopping in a regular size store for the first time in my life

-sexy lingerie

-and to be really honest, crazy good sex! (Its getting better and better every day!)

        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 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      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.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
