Fun ideas for celebrating "surgiversary"?



Recommended Posts

Today is my one year anniversary of my surgery. It has been an amazing year and I have lost 180 pounds. I have reached my goal weight and I'm thrilled. In the old days, going out to eat would have been the way to Celebrate. That's not the case now. I'm looking for fun ways to Celebrate my surgiversary. Any ideas? :D

I went on a cruise with some ladies I met on these boards (when it was still vertical sleeve talk). We all had our surgeries mid June, and celebrated our one year surgiversary together. It was a good time

Edited to add: Happy Surgiversary! And congrats on your weight loss! You rocked it!

I'll be getting a tattoo to Celebrate a year since surgery and close to 200 pounds lost! Though I can see how that may be a little TOO celebratory for most people. :)

Massage is a great idea! Shopping is always good. It might be fun to look around for something new to do in honor of the new you. Short flight somewhere? Boat ride? Amusement park?! I would love to find a roller coaster or other fun ride when I feel safe in the safety gear. Bumper cars? Dune Buggies? It really depends on what you are near!

Have a grown up party at a trampoline bounce gym! Go sunset kayaking with friends! Go backpacking! Splurge on something pretty and go dancing!

I am far, far from my one year surgiversary, but I'd like to think that it would be a super fun treat to do a silly and active activity with friends to celebrate.... or mark off a bucket list item!!

These are all great ideas! I decided to treat myself to a season pass at Carowinds. I love roller coasters and my butt now fits in the seats. Yay! I haven't been able to ride anything for the last several years. I'm looking forward to riding the rides all summer long.

Go to a nude beach and show everyone what you got!!!

In all seriousness, I just want to throw it out there that CharlotteKat is a very dear friend of mine and she looks absolutely amazing. I met her in the fall and cannot believe how stunning and beautiful she looks. I had the surgery about a year before she did and she inspires me every day to stay on the "program". She is a shining example of a success story.

Luanndo,

You are the most beautiful person! Not me! You are the best!!! I wish everyone had a friend who is as wonderful as you are! If it wasn't for Bariatric Pal, we would have never met each other. My life is so much better because you reached out to me via this site. No one else understands what you are going through as the people who share the same surgeon and the same surgery. We traveled the same path. This site is a powerful source of support.

This journey is not an easy one. It is a life changing event. There are remarkable people who you will meet along the way via their posts on Bariatric Pal. "Luanndo" contacted me when I knew no one. How lucky I am to find a kindred spirit!

If you read this post, please think about reaching out to other people who are sharing the same journey. The rewards are immeasurable!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
