What are you treating yourself to once you hit your goal weight???

>> What are you treating yourself to once you hit your goal weight?

Comfort comes free, I guess.

My WLS will bring ** better fitting clothes, ** more space in the driver's seat, ** less fear of my body breaking chairs, ** fewer dopey remarks from nasty people, ** fewer concerns about the judgments and assumptions people make about fat/obese people, etc.

That green one is one I know a lot. People have regularly assumed that because I'm morbidly obese, my work is lazy or substandard BEFORE they get to know me at a workplace. In all my jobs in all my locations, I was eventually understood to be a conscientious and very effective employee. Several line-managers and bosses assume laziness and indolence in the first instance.

So, I want people to make fewer assumptions about me on first impressions ... not being obese will take one very visible issue and its compound assumptions off the table.

My husband and I have a cruise booked for my 31st bday/5 year wedding anniversary and I would love to be able to wear pretty summer clothes/bathing suit and feel good. There is also lots of photos that are taken on the cruise ship and I want to be comfortable with having my photo taken.

Victoria secret. Never been able to shop there. I’m going to Disney in December should be able to fit on rides by then. But VS, is something I’ve always wanted to buy myself and never could. Was embarrassed to even go in there Bc I new they had nothing for me. I have other types of pieces but not the same

I have a red dress in my closet........it is haunting me, calling my name! :rolleyes: I bought my dress 7 years ago when hubs and I got married and I LOVE that dress. It makes me feel :235_bee:utiful! and I cannot wait until I can fit in it again. It is a size 14. Most people would want to be below this size.......for me this is a good size and my target. Also, hubs and I are buying an RV and the joy of being able to climb in and out with no knee pain and just travel the US from coast to coast!! AHH life is grand.....

Ok new goal which I recently met. I wanted fit into the kilt and Jacket I got married in, 25 years ago. I am so going to wear it when the formal opportunity presents, Funny thing happened recently I realized I could fit in the same clothes a my 21 year old son. I don't think he was impressed.

My personal wish was to buy myself a kate spade new york party dress. One of the really pretty dressy ones. I'm at my goal weight but I still haven't bought one because they're soooo expensive and my weight is still changing. I want to wait until I maintain at a certain size to drop that kind of cash!

I have also been buying myself pandora charms for my Bracelet every 25 lbs lost. still have to get one for my 75 lb loss!

And this wasn't specifically a reward for losing weight, but my family is going to Disney World this December and I can't wait to be there and have tons of full length body pictures I will actually like! LOL

Enjoy Disney! December with all the holiday decorations there are lots of photo ops. There is a great one in the animal kingdom lodge lobby in front of the tree.

A whole bunch of walk-bys in front of people who would not have noticed me before and non-chalant responses like “what, this old thing??” even though I’m sure I’ll be proud as hell to be wearing a size... (whatever I settle at)




Yesss!!! I love this sooo much. I'm doing the same thing.

I'm finally going to take pictures with my husband. I feel embarrassed for him when I'm in the pic with him right now. He has given me everything else I could ever want. So, I will treat myself to being his blonde bombshell!! LOL

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      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.
