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!

      2 weeks and 6 days to go before I have my VSG surgery.  I am so EXCITED!  I thought that my nerves would be all over the place by now, but I am still cool as a cucumber.

      I'm just over 3 months into my 6 month pre-op diet plan and I feel like giving up.  Not because of the food, but because life is hard right now.  
      Work has become intolerable due to the amount of stress that I cannot control, but inevitably know will cause major issues for me down the road.  Long story short it's one of those "I tried to tell you this was going to happen things" that nobody reacted to because of budget constraints, but in the end there's going to be a "fall man" for what happens and it will be me, despite my preventative warnings.
      My boss is on my side, in theory, but when it comes down to protecting his own hide, I feel like he would sacrifice me to save himself.
      Also, I just had to cancel my holiday vacation due to staffing issues in my department, so now my personal life is going to be affected by my work issues.
      At this point, I'm just venting.  I realize that there are people out there much less fortunate than myself, but it sucks all the same.  I feel like everytime I get close to being happy with life, it comes and gives me a boot in the ass for a reality check.
      Happy Thanksgiving!

      My weight will JUST NOT BUDGE. I'm annoyed. This stall sucks. Can stress alone trigger a stall? I'm 237, have been for...oh 10 days now. I'm doing everything else I need to, but am more stressed than I have been.

        You will stall. I’ve had stalls for over three weeks at a time. The lower you get, the longer it will take to lose the pounds. Just keep to the program, it will come off. It’s discouraging but everyone goes through it! 🤗

      I am under 200 this morning! It's been a loooooong time ... And doesn't feel quite real. I'm not sure how to make it feel real except stare at the scale until my brain accepts it.

        I have 14 more pounds before I reach that milestone, too. I've lost 80lbs so far since June.

        So happy for you, Leia. I haven't looked up your goal weight yet. Do you have any other intermittent milestone goals after this one? I haven't figured out any in particular for myself, but I know I want to always keep myself motivated to keep working toward some goal.

      Woohoo!!!
      I had my VSG surgery on Thursday, 11/15...
      Some of the things I've learned in the last couple days:
      Applesauce is the devils food. (It's the only thing that's made me vomit so far).
      Getting enough fluid/protein in is a challenge... Any tips?
      (I'm vegetarian, so bone broth is out...)

      Walking has always been my favorite form of exercise, short of swimming, but it is now a necessity... get that gas OUT!

      & I LOVE nurses!! I was in intense pain post-op & the nurses were amazing.. they were amazing throughout my short stay.
      (& they are the only people on the planet that can tell you: "I can hear your intestines moving!" & make it sound like: "& the Oscar goes to...") :D

      Thanks to everyone on here who has helped get this journey started.
      I'm incredibly excited for the next phases moving forward! :)
