I travel for business - a lot. I secretly carry my seatbelt extender..and the awkwardness of trying to get settled, in the seat and it all hooked up while a hundred walk by seeing all of my struggles trying to get situated. By the time I do, I'm so hot, tired and just OVER it.

I actually had a steward(ess) tell me to please not try to steal the seatbelt extender. It was mine. I bought it on Amazon. : ( But that was just HUMILIATING.

I want to be able to travel without someone looking at me like I'm a monster when I try to sit next to them on the plane.

That (above) and being able to sit without an extra 50lbs sitting on the top of my thighs from my belly.

Those are the things I can't wait for after surgery.

Not Worrying, dammit is this chair gone hold out.

I'm with you@! I get the chair thing. I actually broke a tiny one in a conference room in my office. THAT...*sigh*...and I can't wait to buy clothes in a normal store and just not be sad that they don't carry my size.

I'm looking forward to being able to completely wrap a towel around myself!

Right? I haven't been able to do that since I was 12. : ) I'm looking forward to that as well!!!

Oh this!! And also being able to get the tray down so that it sits flat, not resting on my belly at an incline!

Sigh. I forgot all the times I tiredly chosen to stand because the chairs were sketchy. I've had chairs collapse and legs snap off while I was in them , at events.

But

This girl did yoga so I was able to sustain chair pose long after the chair. never again. I hope nothing but the best for y'all!!!

Safe Journey 🎈

My favorite Chinese resturant has bench seating and booths, went to sit and slide, and the doggone bench started rocking back and forth. Thought a PA went off, Fat Girl Alert, B-I-G Woman on board. Dreaming of being less obtrusive, just being Less Special when I just came for my HotSpur Soup.

I get lots of those as well. And those plastic lawn chairs. I just stand up when visiting ppl and family with those. : \

Yes, and feeling the pain of sitting in those too small chairs. I made the mistake, too, of sitting in the emergency exit on the plane. THOSE seats do NOT have any give. The sides are made that way for structure. I was in serious pain for a 4 hour flight.

Yes! I actually bought a package for myself for Christmas this year that expires in 1 year. I know I won't be perfect, but it's my motivation to have them done around this time next year!

I've never owned a dress as an adult or even teenager and I'm 38. Haven't been swimming and enjoyed it since I was a kid. Every day of my life I've been self-conscious in some form or fashion about my fat. I can't wait for the day when that's no longer an issue. And when I can feel pretty for once and believe it myself.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
