It’s been over 2 years since surgery. I’ve been stalled for a bit and didn’t think there would be too many NSVs anymore. Today I wore a bathing suit for the first time since I was in high school 16+ years ago! I forgot how much I enjoyed swimming and I really didn’t care about people seeing me or what they thought about the way I look. :)

My step tracker only has one more hole left on the wrist band.

Bad twist - I am down from a 42DD to a 36B. Went to Walmart to get some new bras and they didn't have any in my size - except the cupless stretch bras. These old saggy "rocks in socks" definitely need a cup to hold 'em up, but I will have to look elsewhere. :( :) My back is definitely better for having the weight off the front side. :)

Bought some size 12-14 pants today!!!!!!!! Amazing!!!!!!!!

And I got me some 17-18 things while I was solvent from Social Security. The old joke is "Welfare is not fair always and you certainly aren't going to be well- off while on it" well my retort is that beong a child of the 50s and early 60s wasn't all tea and crumpets. We had our trials, tribulations but my kinfolk asking well as the rest of you are Ooo//8

Two major NSV/ surgery victories today!

I got my swabs to become part of the bone marrow donor registry. I had a friend die from cancer a few years ago who was unable to find a bone marrow match and he asked that friends join the registry so that other cancer patients could find matches. I was over their BMI limit and it really upset me that I couldn’t donate. I finally meet the BMI requirements and was able to send my swabs in today!

Second NSV. I tried to get an IUD two years ago after my son was born but the doctor was unable to locate my cervix for insertion due to my obesity (we’re talking BMI of almost 60). Today I finally had my consult appointment for IUD placement!

My eldest son was able to donate marrow to a child at our local children's hospital about a year ago. I was so proud of him and hope the child is doing well.

Yesterday, I wore shorts in PUBLIC for the first time in about 5 years (not counting swim shorts) and I was glad to notice that the shorts didn't ride up at all and not once did I need do that funny just-got-of-a-horse walk to un-wedge them from up in my crotch area.

But.......what really blew me away was that I also noticed that my thighs DON'T EVEN TOUCH ANYMORE when I walk. Not even a little bit. I don't even remember when the last time this was the case. Crazy.

I agree about the thigh thing. Wow. Like I can't remember a time when I didn't wear out the inside of my pants because of thigh rubbing.

So a funny thing happened at work yesterday. A co-worker who did not know me when I was heavy was talking about CPAP machines (she is a bit on the heavy side) and I mentioned how much mine helped me. Her response, "My sister is skinny like you and she needs one too." WHAT????? I almost looked around to see if she was talking to someone else! No one has ever called me "skinny" in my whole life!!! WOOO HOOOO!

I've noticed significantly less chub rub this summer than all my previous summers. I live in Arizona. I had to make sure my thighs were shaved dolphin-smooth before I went out in a dress in the summer, or I would have heat rash and chafing within an hour. Usually I ended up with that anyway, so I would wear capris or jeans. Now it seems to be a complete non-issue. I still get hot, but not even close to the degree I did when I was 100lbs heavier. It's like I was wearing 2 winter coats every summer before this one!

I have to say most cases of bikinis and balls don’t end well...IMHO 😏☺️

Strapless Bras.

I can now wear one and it actually holds my boobs up...like a regular bra! Not like before, when my trunk and boobs were so big that strapless bras preformed no more than glorified pasties.

(side note: I just realized that almost all my posts today have been about boobs. yikes.)
