I went shopping for the first time since surgery today! I thought I’d get the next two sizes down so I wouldn’t have to go back anytime soon. The 2nd size down are the ones that fit!! Whoop whoop

I flew in to a conference yesterday and was able to buckle my seatbelt without struggling to clasp the belt. I remember last time I flew in on the same flight last year I tried to hide the fact that my belt wasn't buckled from the attendants because I was so embarrassed and didn't want to ask for an extender.

My goal for the next flight will be to buckle it and actually have to tighten the belt!

I am flying next week for the first time since my surgery! Hope I don’t have to ask for an extender.

On a related note I really had been wanting a pair of red jeans and I found some. Bought the next size down without trying them on AND THEY FIT!

I was looking at pictures I took of myself last year and I couldn't believe how much of a difference there was in my face! I always feel like my face never changed because I have loose skin on my neck and chin, but WOW.

These days I've been coming up with NSV's that somehow/sometimes don't really seem like NSV's, as I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. So here's another one:

Yesterday, Mr. carried me up the stairs, not like on his back like piggy-back, nor over his shoulder like a sack of potatoes/flour/presents/whatever, but like over-the-threshold kind of carry...which he hasn't done since he literally carried me over the threshold to our first house before the Kid was born (~15 years ago)

All the way up, I kept thinking he was going to pull his back out or something and we would take a tumble and then when we got to the top, sooooo relieved when we got there intact.

Back in January I started recording my measurements. Today I'm down 17 inches... [emoji4]20190501_103034.jpeg

Just ordered shedloads of clothes to try fill holes in my wardrobe cos, quite frankly, my jeans now look stoopid.

Ordered UK 16 and 18 in most stuff as a lark. Kept a size 16 maxi skirt, 2 size 16 vest tops, and a size 16 shirt...and I cried.

Uncharted territory from here on out. Very weird. Very wonderful.

I had to fly to Penn this past weekend for my son's college graduation. The person that had the plane seat before me had the seatbelt expanded as far as it could go and I thought about when I needed it there too, then I cinched it in about 15 in!

My son has not seen me since I started this bariatric journey and his response was "Gee Mom, you are so skinny!"

And, the NSV I planned for just in case it happened...I ran into the ex and his wife (I've never met her before) and I was looking pretty damn good and smaller than her! Not that I really care what either of them think about me but it did make me feel good for a moment!

I had my surgery on April 16, 2019. These are all the clothes that were too big on me so gave it to goodwill.
