Fitting in the chairs in the conference room at work that always squeezed the heck out of my thighs. Now I can sit in the chair and they arms barely touch my thighs.

Also being able to cross my legs like a normal woman when I wear skirts/dresses instead of having to do the old fat girl ankle cross.

Hey I can do that now too.......It was weird the first time I did it. I was like, hey I can cross my legs. I can cross my legs just like a normal person can.

I had two recently. 1. I got my blood pressure taken at Sams and my arm actually fit in the machine. No push g or squeezing. 2. I weighed myself today and realized that I could look down and read my weight without having to back off the scale to see what it said. Yay!

Walking around the lake and not feeling winded and actually having energy.

Riding on the paddle boat with my son and husband and being able to easily paddle around the lake, and my hubby and no longer almost sink the front of the boat. 160 pounds down combined.

World's longest zip line over Water. Walking tour in Old San Juan. Run/walk 5k. And I finished ahead of over 30 people, where I was dead last 2 years ago. Hearing my Husband tell me that he can absolutely see how much easier it is for me to get around when we are out doing activities. The last 2 vacations we took were the best in a very long time because I was able to be active. I Don't mind pictures any more. I didn't want to look at myself before. Love shopping now. I feel many of the positive effects every single day and I am so thankful.

I haven't been on this site for a long time, but I do plan on changing that.

I recently started a blog on my whole WLS journey - I am 5 years out from VSG; lost 152 lbs and have kept it off for

over four years now.

I wrote a post specific to my NSVs and since it's quite long, rather than copy it here I'll share this link instead.

Went to American Eagle this weekend to get a pair of jeans, was able to shop items in the store (normally I had to buy online because they don't have "extended" sizes in our location) and found a pair of size 12 in my favorite style that fit.

This time last year I was a tight 22.

Being able to go on a strenuous hike with my fit brother and his girlfriend was big!

I went from a 20 to a 6. My low was always a size 10/12 when I yo-yoed, which meant I had a lot of "reserve" clothes for when I lost weight. I go to the thrift store constantly now because I can't afford an entire new wardrobe of smaller clothes- the victory for me is that it is so much easier to find stylish small clothes than size 20 clothes at the thrift store, so I walk out with awesome stuff now!
