Bucket list of things to do after weight loss...



Recommended Posts

Does anyone have things they are looking forward to finally doing/trying that you felt you couldn't do before!?

I personally can not weight (get it! haha) to try rock climbing and getting back into casual bike riding!

Bucket List:

Fitting it into my size 12 jeans, dresses, and cute skirts.

Then donating them two months later, because they are too big for me.

Becoming an adjunct (part-time) professor at one of the local colleges or universities. Have been wanting to do that for a couple of years. But not wanting to stand in front of a classroom of college students in this body.

Go swimming without shame.

Take pictures with my daughter. (I hate seeing how chunky I've become in photos, so I avoid taking pictures like the plague).

Enjoying the summer, because I won't be so hot inside 50 pounds of extra fat.

And other basic things that I'm looking forward to taking for granted a year from now. :)

​I have just been thinking this week that I would like to try casual bike riding again. I don't even know if I remember HOW to ride a bike but I would love to give it a shot!

And if we are talking true bucket list, I think maybe possibly I would like to do a zip line. I think someone would have to push me off the platform, but I think I might really enjoy it once I tried it! My sister took this "trapeze" class here in town recently and said I HAVE to put that on my list. I don't know about that one, but it is cool to think I might be able to. Then again, maybe that would be a good precursor to a zip line.

I'd like to be able to bend over to pick something off the floor, without having to open my legs so my belly doesn't get in the way!

Small things can sometimes mean the world ;)

I may be 54, but I love theme parks! I live in southern CA, and as cliched as it might sound, I want to go to Disneyland! And... California Adventures, Six Flags, and every other park out there! I want to ride every single ride they have too.

I'd also love to go to the Grand Canyon and white Water rafting.

I want to take my children skating/rollerblading.. Gosh I loved to do that when I was younger! The skating rink is a place I have avoided taking my children thus far... And Water parks.. I saw a huge slide up near Dallas or somewhere like that. I would LOVE to drive up and check it out!!

I'd love to take the kids to the caverns and walk underground for the lantern tours.. I afraid I would get stuck in a tight crevice now.. Lol.

And those superficial things like fit into a size 6.. I think that would be my goal jeans.. I've never ever ever worn below a 14.. Well as long as I can remember anyhow.. I'm sure I wasn't born wearing a size 14..lol

Not having a conversation with yourself "how important are tied shoes at this moment?"

There are a list of things I'm looking forward to

having a conversation with any member of my family that doesn't revolve around my weight

crossing my legs (I've NEVER been able to do that)

fitting in a booth

walking up to the second floor without being totally out of breath

going on a hike

going on a tropical vacation and feeling comfortable by the pool

buying clothes in a regular store

looking in the mirror and not hating what I see

not being embarrassed to have my picture taken

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
