First Time (even after WLS)



Recommended Posts

A coach on my staff had his 40th birthday party at a Vegas (never been) style pool. This was the first adult pool party I have ever been invited to. NO way I would have done this prior to WLS. I had a blast and felt normIMG_0913.thumb.jpg.cb845308a4e7903722ecf4746d933911.jpgal with my body. Trying to blonde out my graying hair may have been a mistake (mid life crisis) but still had a lot of fun. Even enjoyed a few Shiners. Just kept track of my calories to not over do it. This was back in July. Have lost another 8-9 lbs from this picture. Never thought this would be possible. You can do this too! Hang in there. IMG_66761.thumb.jpg.3bae0eff2162f7d05d0c8389437a7430.jpg

I guess I should have posted this as a question.

Once you hit or get close to goal, is there anything you are going to do for the first time? What are you looking forward too?

I still have a bucket (what is the opposite of a bucket list? not dying, living for the first time in a long time) list of things I cannot wait to try.

Maybe this sounds like pure vainty to guys (and some gals) but I would like a series of glamor shots taken. I have been so disappointed in ME, let others call me names, called myself even worse in the,privacy of homen I would like for One Shining Moment,to have,the Pretty Frustr8, the SweetFrustr8, dare I say it? the,True Hidden Frustr8 thats has been hidden under sorrows and,a thick layer of Fat to glow forward! I don't want my casket view to be the prettiest I have looked in MY ADULT LIFE!

I'm so happy for you, it's the best feeling to feel normal and you look great.

I've always wanted to take flying/pilot lessons,but most of the small planes used for that require you to be under 250lbs. Now that I'm holding steady at 220, I'm ready. I'm hoping my wife gets me this for Christmas. :)
