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.

      Happy Friday!
      Went to the surgeon this week for my 9 month follow up, a little early. I haven't seen him at my other follow ups (always a PA), besides the one time he called afterwards, but this time he stopped in and made a point to congratulate me. He said I'm doing amazing and to keep up the good work. I've shaved 25 points off my BMI, and down 142lbs at 8 months post op.
      I'm starting to really feel normal, not like a bariatric patient. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing. While I still have good habits, I don't think its  "hard work" anymore. I feel that I have truly changed my lifestyle. My new normal feels really good!
      Hope everyone is doing well.
      Much love,
      Ash

        Congratulations Ash!! That is amazing. I am so happy for you. woot woot :450_trophy:

      2. GreenTealael

        Congrats! I too feel *normal*

        It may be a good thing, I never wanted to struggle at this, and the most successful VETs don't appear to be struggling either...

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      2. SleeveinIL

        Were you up here??? I am sorry I missed you. My appointment was at 1:15 so it seems we may have just missed each other!!! When do you see him for the 9 month? Maybe we could meet up and say hi!

      3. AshAsh1

        Oh my gosh, that's a gag... we literally just missed each other! It was technically my 9 month appointment, even though I'm only 8 months post op. I missed my 6 month, so I went a month early to my 9 month. I probably won't be back up until my year appointment, but if I come sooner, I'll be sure to let you know!
