Way to go! I was a 46 before the surgery, now I'm a 44, and those are too big (but 42s are too small).

I saved an artifact from way back when I first started losing weight when I was at my peak, size 52 waist jeans. I hope to bring them to a support group meeting one day very soon.

Great job! What a difference! Congratulations! I agree your bank account wont be happy! Lol!

I am very fortunate as I have kept my jeans from size 28 down to a 16. I am in 20/22 now! We do have a clothing closet, so that helps (all free, can go every week, and I donate back the sizes too big!) I got a pair of Rockin Republic jeans at Kohls before Christmas on clearance for $10. Size 20. They fit perfectly then, now not so much! I did buy a belt to help with that though! Lularoe leggings have been my life saver! I have worn them since I was a 28! So 8 sizes and they still fit! I bought 2 brand new pair so that was $50 and $10 or $15 for the used pair. $65 for a little over 2 years of wearing is awesome to me! And still going strong!

Congrats you are doing great! Its such a wonderful feeling isn't it? I've gone from a size 22 to a size 10/12 and a size S/M top. It's insane! It is a hit to the wallet though, especially if you have to wear dress clothing for work.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss
