Vision adjustment after weight loss goal



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, hope all is well I've been thinking about this topic for a few months now. I wonder if anyone who is losing the weight noticed that when shopping for clothes my mine is still thinking big sizes. Example, I go to buy a pair of jeans I go straight to sizes I used to be, like 16, then I find myself talking no your size is 2 then slowly I go over to the smallest size. I look at the clothes and still can't believe I'm that small now. Several times this happened to me ANYONE out there are going through eye adjustment on weight loss? Share your story.

As I was losing weight, I noticed that one of my NSV (non scale victories) was going in and buying a piece of new clothes that were slightly smaller than my current size. You know, the kind that if you took a deep breathe, you would pop a button on the pants. And then a week later, that piece of clothes would fit me like a glove. It was quite a thrill.

It takes time for your brain to catch up to your weight loss. It's a strange thing to adjust to your new smaller self.

Yes, I used to always stretch out my tops in the tummy and arm area before putting them on. Sometimes I still catch myself doing it even though my shirts are all plenty roomy now. I bought a size smaller t-shirt the other day and really strechef it out because I was afraid it was going to be too tight, it didn't need stretched at all, I could've even went down 2 sizes.

        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. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
