**Milestone** I can finally cross my legs!



Recommended Posts

I know this seems minimal but yesterday while in the nail shop with my friend she made a joke "bitch lost ten pounds and think she cute because she can cross her legs."

This is how we talk to and joke with each other to mask the fat girl pains we've endured together. But prior to her comment I hadn't even noticed that I was crossing my legs a lot. I couldn't cross them before and although I'm technically only 44 pounds down since beginning my journey September 1, 2015 this made me feel so good especially since I've been stalling the past month.

I find any little positive comment or fitting into to something that hasn't seen the light of day for a while brings such immense pleasure. I can finally lift my left leg to put on a sock or tie a shoe. I have severe arthritis in the hip and between the weight and that I had to have my husband put my left sock on. I almost cried when I was able to do it for myself. Being so overweight puts such severe limitations on oneself that when you start to lose it's like a miracle. Congrats on crossing your legs.

Ok confession,

I have always wanted to cross my legs, especially at church! It was at a midweek service and my sister saw that I was crossing my legs and she asked when I started being able to do that. I didn't even realize I was doing it, but when she pointed it out, I took a picture and sent it to my mom... It really is the little things that make you proud.

I'm literally laughing my a** off right now because I was just joking about this last night. I've lost enough weight that I can sit like a European man does, with his legs crossed. If I dared trying that before I would have broke my leg or dislocated my hip. In fact, the last time I tried doing it when I was huge my leg ended up going immediately to sleep and it took me a long time before I stopped walking funny. LOL

Ha ha that's a big joke between me and my wife because I cross my legs all the time now. At times it doesn't look very masculine. We joke about it a lot .

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
