Pulling on my slacks, having them be loose instead of tight and uncomfortable in "rise" the crotch seam. And the best-ess part, going to stores and not automatically searching how large each piece goes, I believe someday even if I am not "normal" or "average" I still will make it to "midsize" personhood and from where I started that looks a fine place to be. Maybe, just maybe, my relatives will not call me Wide Load, do you think they were thoughtless or just didn't much care for me? It hurt me to my core I wasn't accepted better😭😪😥👗
I’m so sorry you had that happen. Honestly if they are general caring people it’s probably more thoughtlessness. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.

If they are general not nice people then it’s intentional. Usually I find people who bring people down intentionally are usually miserable and unhappy. They want you feeling like them. So much BS.

I can sing again. Throughout my childhood and young adulthood I sang in choirs. The last few years I got so big and had such reduced lung capacity that I couldn’t hold a note anymore. Just now while I was on the treadmill walking 4.5 mph, my favorite song came on my shuffle and I started singing along, in tune, no panting or wheezing. When I realized what I was doing I started crying. It was such an incredible moment to realize that I have my voice back.

What a joyous realization! Congrats!

Don’t have my date scheduled for my surgery yet but I have lost 43 lbs pre surgery feeling great about that.
Today I took my first ((HOT)) shower without my bench buddy. Huge accomplishment for me as I have for years had problems with my blood pressure in the shower go up and me pass out. So I didn’t need the bench nor the cold Water. Feels great to be normal again!!!🤗🤗🤗🤗
