I had my rings resized from an 8.5 to a 6.5! Whoo hoo. I enjoy shopping now. I still buy a lot of stuff at Goodwill but I'm getting so close (3 lbs!) to my goal weight and then I will "invest" in some new things -- but truthfully I'm getting really good stuff at GW -- Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren, Talbots, etc....they rarely had those in the plus section when I needed it.

I can wear regular boots, no wide calves needed. My shoe size has gone down 1/2 size too. And I got an updated headshot for work and I really like it! My kids have also told me that they "don't remember" what I looked like before and that makes me happy. I notice that I am not as reluctant to get my picture taken as I used to be -- my "goal weight award" is to get our family portraits updated! Looking forward to planning that in the very near future.

Best NSV is not to make the dreaded resolution to lose weight in the new year! I don't know why but that fact had me in tears on New Year's Eve....

I had 2 people I hadn't seen in a while today tell me I was looking good and they could see a Weight loss. Now usually my mind goes " Don't I always look good?" but these were 2 people I respect very much, if they can see it, I am gratified. A very small NSV, but I am encouraged to have bigger NSV soon. And I may be doing something good after all and I'm going to keep on toward my target weight.

I'm up for adoption! She sounds like my sister who recently told me ..."Man, you might lose your boobs entirely!"

I've got a couple of necklaces that fit around my neck now that didn't before.

I've lost 15" in 3 weeks since surgery.

I'm down a clothing size already.

My face and neck look thinner.

It just occurred to me that I haven't had to buy new work shoes in years - I used to wear them out about once a year, sometimes less.

I walk longer/faster than everyone I know/meet without trying. I have a new urgency to get places (on foot) because my feet and body no longer hurt when I walk now...

This means so much to me. I didn't even realize it until children were tired of me 😂.

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
