So I think we all know we are here to lose weight and begin this journey... for me I need to be healthy again, but what are you looking forward to the most... I keep talking about being active again with my husband and things I look forward to doing with my daughter but really deep down no joke, I will be excited to tie my shoes without feeling like I am going to roll forward and pass out... how about you guys what is that one thing that really keeps you determined? I know the hard work we have been doing to get to this point it is with in reach and I am so so so excited and ready!

I can not wait until I can cross my legs like a lady and feel comfortable.

I just want to feel better and have more energy and confidence when I walk into a room!

I agree I am so used to trying to hide when I walk in a room, but so clumsy I usually trip walking in... but it would be refreshing to feel that confidence of I am here!

I just want to feel healthy. And not feel ‘restricted’ all the time. And also I really want to be able to ride a roller coaster with my son without having to worry if I will fit in the seat!

I hear you about bending over to tie shoes and also being more active and having energy to do things with my husband and daughter. That is the one thing that keeps me determined-I am doing this so I can be around longer to grow old with my husband and be there as long as I can for my daughter

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy

      The sad dejected truth that you are not the same size in a plush padded vs. Lacy unlined bra. And should have known it. Sigh.

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        I see what you did there!

        Also, boobs are dumb. I'm pretty sure I'll be tucking mine iento my socks in a few months!

      3. GreenTealael

        I see what you did lol

        They still kinda work but only by accident 😓, I couldn't find my exact size so I decided to play around with band/cup manipulation. But now I know padded bras may be adding a full cup size I don't own...

        I've been counting on that for years!

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓
