So I’m having a hard time with my fast changing body. I mean I have just begun to buy new clothes (7 mos post op) because now I’m losing at a slower pace. But, in the beginning I refused to buy new clothes. I felt it was pointless, especially with the way you run through sizes and all. So, I made a resolution to only buy tights in those first few months after surgery, which I still think was the best idea! Most of my shirts still seem to fit okay to me, although recently my kids and DH kept complaining about how everything was hanging off me and made me give away my old rags ...which was cool because they bought me some new ones but I digress! Currently, I’m struggling with these new (saggier) breast 😂 ! I mean for the life of me I cannot find a bra that works well. I know I’ve gone down a few sizes and the logical thing to do would be to just go in Vicky’s and get fitted. However, i don’t want to go thru all the hassle, to buy a $50, just to drop sizes again and have to repeat the process next month. Currently, I wear one of my old bras underneath a sports bra (I know it’s seems crazy ...don’t judge me). My regular old bras still give me some support while the sports bra on top acts like Spanx, smoothing everything out. Sports bras alone seem to flatten me out, and when I’m working out I don’t mind. But, I sure could use some advice here to help find something that will help out in my everyday...that will provide that 2 in 1 (support and control) without having to wear two bras! Any suggestions?????

I get the molded cups from cacique, they are the only thing that seems to work for me. Only down side is they are $50 a pop.

I'm almost two years post-op and needless to say I feel like you have been peeping through my window. I was wearing one of my old bras under a tight sports bra. And bought tights to wear as a outfit for each day. You just discribed me to a tea. Not judging at all. Better to get fitted now and prepare to be fitted again later. I will say this, I bought my old size when I was a year out and from my weight loss, I hadn't really noticed until I put on said bra and almost tilted over. 😇 I've found one not that I truly love. I hope you find a great fitting bra...

I guess I’m going to have to come to terms with paying the cost!

Yeah I guess that’s the only solution for now!

      From Combo to ala carte, my how meals have changed. Hubby and I would both get combo meals, and be able to finish them and that's after finishing off a basket of chips and salsa! These days we get ala carte or even share a combo. And I'm trying to be more conscious of the small bites. And trying to eat a little something in between. That is harder as I have always tried not to snack in between meals, but lately by the time it was time to eat, I'm not taking the time to chew and then it all goes down hill from there.  Still working on it and feeling the body changing YES!

      NSV: yesterday a business man came into to see one of the bosses. He gave me a candy bar first and then the paperwork. I said I would be sure to give to supervisor. he says no candy is for you. I said its ok, he was , NO ITS FOR YOU. I said thank you , that I had had weight surgery so I tend to stay away from candy. He looked at me up and down and said you don't need surgery (probably didn't understand what I had said).  It's nice knowing that I look fit enough to where I would not need one, lol. Working out 25 out of 31 days definitely helps!
