Just under 6 weeks post op and down around 55lb. Visiting friends in Germany and ended up doing something I’ve not done for a fair while - looking forward to getting back into it 😃

OMG! As soon as I made it under 250lbs the first thing I said is that I could finally go horseback riding again! This is awesome. Enjoy!

Good for you!

Ha, ha! Under 250 was my first goal, made it a few days ago. 😁

I am finally in the weight maximum for my dining room chairs, folding lawn chairs, and my kayak. Not that it has stopped me, I like to live on the edge 🤣

      Just wanted to give an update. I've been really busy lately with work and my husband had recent surgery. I was off work last week and taking care of him, amongst a nice visit from my mom.
      I'm getting super close to Onderland! I keep teetering around 201-203lbs. Its been this way for the last two weeks.
      I went shopping this past weekend for fall/winter clothes. I am officially no longer a plus size woman. I wear dresses every day, so it's crazy to say, but I hadn't bought any pants since I was a size 20. I only replaced my pants once from a 26ish to a 20 and then I just bought size 12/14 jeans this weekend  And I'm wearing a large in tops (previously a 4X) . It was such a surreal experience going in and being able to shop in this HUGE section of the store. Although, I'm learning, no matter what your size, clothes are still hard to shop for. I thought size would open all these wondrous opportunities, not so much LOL.
      Basically, I'm keeping busy and keeping my mind healthy. A part of that is I'm not hyper focused on the scale. I get more comfort from the NSV anyways.
       I hope to be online more this week

        I've noticed your absence, and you've been missed. You were here for me when I first joined this forum, so I'm a bit attached to you as well as grateful for your kind support early on.

        I enjoyed hearing about your shopping experiences. I can relate to the plus-size woes. I'm not anywhere near being out of 3x-4x, but I'm living vicariously through you and your size 12/14 shopping for now! I wear dresses exclusively because I've always enjoyed their comfort, variety of style, and the way they make me feel (like a woman!). I can't remember the last time I wore pants of any kind. It might be nice to wear jeans again someday.:)

      2. AshAsh1

        @KimTriesRNY Its such a good feeling, congrats to you as well!

        @Missouri-Lee's Summit I know, I've been so occupied lately, I like to be active on here, but sometimes time just gets away from me. I very much appreciate your kind words! Dresses are the best :) I will probably still wear a lot of them with tights, going into the winter. But it feels awesome to look good in jeans again. You will be there before you know it! I hit the 3 month mark and my body started changing at a rapid rate. I had lost a lot of weight in the first 3 months, but my body didn't seem to reflect it until then.

        I'm glad everything is going well on your end. Family first, always and of course, but we do miss your presence here. Congrats on your clothes shopping! I recommend to not go overboard, since you are still losing and will probably be much smaller by the time it gets really cold.

        Way to go!

      4. AshAsh1

        @macadamia thank you :) I am being careful not to buy too much, but my weight loss has slowed substantially. I'm not losing 10lbs-15lbs a month like I previously was. I'm lucky to get off 5lbs a month now. Not to say that I wouldn't lose a size after a couple months, but it's not as rapid. Plus I buy all my clothes from Marshalls and TJMaxx (who's return policy is practically forever), so if they don't fit when it gets time to wear them... then I'll return them for store credit to buy new stuff.

        Always thinking ahead - awesome!

      Stall is finally broken and I am losing again. Stalls suck but I understand them much better now. I am still feeling great and have kicked my workouts up a notch. I went to an arm/abs class that turned out to be all men and "me".  The dudes walked in with their 30 lb hand weights and I have my little 7.5/10 lbs and I was thinking to myself...what did I get myself into, and am I going to embarrass myself?  Well I decided to stick it out and although I couldn't do everything the dudes were doing, I did a pretty darn good job of keeping up and I am proud of myself for being able to stick with it. I decided I am going back again tomorrow and I am going to kill it again. I belong there too!

        Good for you! I'm still on 3lb weights :( But, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I'm glad you're feeling so well and able to work out so much! I'm sure that's really taking the inches off!

      The whole time I kept having a nightmare I wouldn't lose weight after all this. How horrifying to have it come true. I had surgery on the 8th. I haven't lost anything since. i drink my water, my protein shakes, I walk, but nothing. How could this be happening. Am I just doomed to be overweight forever? I am beyond devastated. Maybe something changes in the next couple months, but I am no longer hopeful.

        Calm down. You're still very swollen. Many doctors advise against weighing the first month because it can be very disheartening. Everyone heals at different rates. Just keep with your plan and you'll be ok. I promise, the scale will move soon - and BIG! It can take a full month for all the abdominal swelling to go down.
