Good for you! I didn't make the change until I was 3X to 1X. Should have made it sooner but hey...the day the bigger clothes went I felt somewhat liberated! Now I'm in a Large shirt and it feels good!

I agree. I actually didn’t buy any 2X shirts my wife pulled out a box of my old shirts which are very nice & said surprise! That was a nice stash considering she saved them before the thought of surgery ever crossed my mind.

The thrift store was a lifesaver during the losing process for me. And once I shrunk out of stuff, I would just re-donate it.

Now, wearing a small, I find the most amazing deals at the mall all the time. After paying a premium for big clothes for most of my life, it is so nice to be able to get cute things at cheap prices!

I eagerly await the proper time to return to the mall.

I promise you it will be a glorious day! I bought this leather jacket for $27 at Forever 21 the other week.

Congrats! I’ve dropped from 3X to 1X. I went to buy some new sweatshirts at Walmart.com and quickly realized I’m no longer on the big and tall section!

I switched from 3x to 2x and some XL. Had to switch from 48 to 42 pants pretty quickly. And now they’re a little loose.

Time for “slim” jeans next time too

It really feels great to shrink. I’m super happy for you.

I was wearing 24w jeans. Now in size 20w and there’s room in the waist (not a tight fit). I’ve worn jeans in between one time! I’m going to either sell on Poshmark or send to Threadup. Some items I’ve just given to Goodwill, if it’s nice but not a major designer.
@Seahawksfan You’re making great progress - way to go! 🕺🏻

Dropping clothes sizes is better for me than anything, even beats the scales. I've suffered all my life needing the bigger clothes and to move down feels amazing, like FINALLY.

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
