Has anyone actually tried picking up a couple dumbbells or weights that equal their weight loss? I grabbed two 45lbs plates at the gym today in either arm and couldn’t believe I was carrying 90 extra lbs around not even 6 months ago

It's a wonder to me, as well. I can lift 50 pound bags of animal feed, but if your strapped two of them to my back, I would be pinned to the ground. How on earth did we carry so much?

Well congratulations to everybody! On the progress!!

Interesting comment about picking up weight equivalent to your lost body fat. I am now 50 pounds down and couldn’t imagine picking it up. I am actually forbidden by my doctor to lift - and to think, I was carrying around that much weight. My hip pain is gone in my ankle pain- GONE. The epidurals I’ve been getting on my back for working and I feel good for the first time since the accident that started all this. This is the first morning I have not woken up and taken an opioid to get started.

My motivation for doing this was primarily related to aches and pains and back pains I was having. So while I got “skinny” a little faster, the real goal - pain relief, just hit!!!

I will say I would categorize myself as “skinny fat” now. I’m 5’-0” tall and clocking in around 110-111. I did not work out during my losing streak and now I feel like I have lost a lot of muscle mass. My husband says my legs are getting too skinny! (He likes muscular legs on women) My thighs don’t even touch when I walk now! I’m going to add some weight training to try to get some muscle tone going. I’m also been working hard on Vitamins, Calcium and Water. Time to fine tune my “sexy” new bod! Haha!

By The way - I got that elliptical machine in the picture for free! My neighbor gave it away and it still had the protective plastic over the display. I got on it once and it kicked my butt! It is hard-core. The last few weeks kind of freaked me out as I got thinner and thinner so I was almost afraid to add cardio. I’m still carrying some weight around my waist that is probably unhealthy (see rolls in pic!). I think it’s time to work out!!

Do you live in an equestrian neighborhood? I lived in one in Mesa and it was awesome! We were on irrigation.

Anna.... don’t we all have problem areas though?

Lol, I’d literally think about selling off one of my children for your legs, but I’ve always had a very “skinny” waist for my size—whatever my actual size was, my waist is ALWAYS 12-14 inches smaller than my hips.
Don’t even get me started on my thighs.... look up the definition of “thunder thighs” in any reference and you’ll probably see mine pictured. 🤣🤣

So those of us women with fabulous legs would wish for less abdominal rolls.
Those of us with a small waist wonder what it would be like to look good in shorts or mini-skirts.

Hell, I’m just gonna start saving for Lipo today and screw it if I get down to goal weight and still have these “fat” legs.
Lol, I’ll buy what Mother Nature has denied me.

*cue maniacal laughter*

Okay so today is my 6 month surgiversary!!!!!

Omg, can’t believe it’s been 6 months

In celebration, decided to go back through my closet and try n items that have been too tight on me
These pants are size 12 Old Navy pixie cut pants. Picked them up at the consignment store 2 months ago bc they were only $6 and they were there NWT.
Today they fit me.
Size 12.

Omg, if someone had told me on February 6th, I’d be wearing pants like this today, I’d have had a better attitude when I woke up in the recovery room. 🤣🤣

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
