I thought of another one today! My armpits used to be fleshy and easy to shave. Now they're all concave and I struggle to get all the hair with the razor!


Omg yes!!! I miss an entire patch sometimes!!!

I didn't realize when I lost weight that ______:

  • I would now be able to see that I have scoliosis with the naked eye, and so would all of my doctors all of a sudden.
  • I apparently look like my sister now, after decades of everyone saying we look nothing alike
  • Visitors from other national offices would seek me out when in town for a business trip for no other reason than they've seen my updated headshot in emails and want to get the full effect
  • People would take my photo, a lot
  • I would spend quite this much time assuring chefs that I did like what they cooked, I just can't eat much of it

Funny, sideeye, but my ortho pointed out the same thing, said " it wasn't as noticable when you were heavier!" Sorry Dr D, but I am going to lose more, too bad about your👀 eyesight, you are the right age for b👓focals anyway. 👸😝

I didn't realize when I lost weight that ______:

I would become a walking advertisement for WL Journey/WLS although not at all intended.

Someone would refer to my two teen daughters and I as triplets and really mean it.

Hey It Is A Real Thing, sat on wood chair without my special pillow, a half- hour and I was wiggling like a puppy with pinworms, trying to find a comfortable angle to put my throbbing tush in, never did find it, headed for the one chair with padding and springs in the room. Was ready to snarl at anyone who tried to dislodge me from Fluffy and Supportive. Johnnie Cochran could play the " Race Card" well I will play the "Age Card" if necessity raises its head!

I wasn’t suggesting the struggle isn’t real. Me too! [emoji1303][emoji23]

I didn't realize when I lost weight that I would be so excited about pooping lol.

I NEVER had issues being regular pre-surgery, in fact it was usually the opposite because I was on Metformin for PCOS.

Also, I didn't realize that I would be cold all the time. Hoping that works in my favor when the Texas summer heat hits.

I didn't realize that when I lost weight...

That I would be so inclined to purchase 5 pairs of the same affordable, Jones New York Lexington Bermuda white shorts (we can wear white here all year around) in decreasing sizes. I started out with size 18 in February. Dropped into a size 16 by March. This April - I am now wearing size 14. Size 12 by late May? Maybe settle into a sound size 10 by June or July? At any size, I really like the tailored jean fit and feel. Goes with everything in my revolving wardrobe. You might want to check them out. Purchased at our Dillard's store here.

Will I need a size 8 someday? No way! Is that even possible. Oh boy.

Silly, I know, but I always liked looking nice before surgery even in sizes 2X or 3X... AND, I am absolutely elated like Greentealael to Celebrate regular size labels again!!! It is a euphoric moment.

And, by the way ladies - Guess who tried to pick me up yesterday morning... My hubby! I had laughed when I read earlier posts and thought to myself - I don't think mild manner Robert the engineer would ever try to pick me up. But he did. I kid you not, he wrapped his arms around my mid-section and attempted to lift up! Not realizing a hug was turning into a gymnastic routine, a resounding big OOCH came from my mouth. It really hurt. My ribs and back were sore all day. Understanding he didn't mean to crush me - I said, maybe will use bubble wrap protection the next time.

So, definitely, another thing I didn't realize when I lost weight... A new HE MAN thing would emerge. ;]

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
