Weirdest things you are looking forward to after surgery



Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if all of you have some weird things that you are looking forward to after surgery?

I have a few:

  • Being able to eat cheese again (without feelnbg guilty) and feeling full from it
  • Being able to look forward to only tasting a (tiny) bit of everything instead of eating lots of the first thing I like.
  • Drinking milk again

Well, they may not be all that weird, but they do seem odd in a positive way. What about you guys?

Eating the right thing in the right amounts, planning to plant and grow some items, today is our last normal frost day, so should be " gravy" from now on.
Otherwise looking like a Foxy Lady instead of someone's Big Momma, I will relinquish my title to Martin Lawrence and Tyler Perry, they both can have all the things that go with such a role.
Otherwise, less short of breath, able to move smoother,quicker and without those groans I used tease,my older relatives about, I now make those sounds myself!!!
And best of all, living a good long while in this crazy Earth. 🌎, have a deep urge to see 👀what happens next.

Here is the list I made preop, my weight loss bucket list as it is:

1. cross my legs - check! I love crossing my legs now and do it all the time!

2. sneeze without peeing - condition has improved greatly

3. rock climbing - haven't tried yet, kinda forgot it was on my list

4. run a 5k - currently training and looking for a race

5. be comfortable wearing shorts and not just capris in summer - check! I never used to wear shorts, but now I have 3 in my new size and only one pair of capris

6. buy a swimsuit that doesn't have a skirt - check!

7. waterski again - gotta get to the lake this summer to knock this one off

7. Sex. More energy for it, more fun positions to try - DOUBLE CHECK!

Some bonus things: I like being able to pop myself up to sit on counters, I can sit on the floor without hurting my hips, I can buy a much bigger variety of shoes because I no longer need wide widths. Unfortunately I'll need to replace all my wide calf boots because they look ridiculous on me now.

I'm glad I no longer have to wear chain extenders on my necklaces.

Oh, I just thought of a new one.

Being able to wear high heels without killing my feet because I'm too heavy and think I look horrible.

I don't know if these are strange but:

- getting on an airplane. I can fit in an airplane now but I want everyone around me to be comfortable.

- so I can throw EVERY LAST ugly fat clothing I own away!. I have clothing down to size 16 and I can not wait until I can give it ALL to goodwill and start afresh!

- to (eventually) have a boyfriend. Let's be honest, the only reason I don't is because I am fat. I do not blame men, I am not attracted to fat people either. It is a preference.

- to have sex again without a tank top on.

- to be able to clean myself better! It does make a difference.

- to shop for clothes that I actually LIKE..

- to wear a non-skirt bathing suit. maybe never a bikini but a nice one-piece or tankini would be nice!

- to prove T every one of the people talking behind my back, that I in fact can and will succeed...

I am sure there are more!

For my stomach to shrink enough that I feel comfortable trail running in just a sports bra and shorts. Fresh air on bare skin while running is heavenly.

Not being the biggest person in the room.

Sitting in a chair without the arms pressing into my sides.

Sitting on an airplane without a seat extension
-getting of of high blood pressure mess
-getting rid of this miserable CPAP
-even being able to consider walking/running a 5K.
-having a toned body instead of one that feels like Jello.
-being able to shop in stores other than Catherines and Lane Bryant
-not having to ask salesladies in the plus size Dept “what’s the largest size you go up to?”
-being able to walk up a flight of stairs without the person on the phone asking me “Why are you breathing so hard all of a sudden?”
-being full after eating a small portion instead of having three plates For dinner.
-the biggest one is feeling comfortable in my skin. I know it sounds strange but sometimes I just can’t get comfortable, as if my skin is the wrong size or doesn’t fit correctly.
- FREEDOM FRIM FEELING MISERABLE EVERY DAY!

Not sure if mine are weird...but:

1. Being able to wear shorts and skirts in the summer and to not feel like I am a complete lard failure if I throw on a tank top.

2. To run a 5k - looking to sign up for one in the fall for motivation and to reach this goal.

3. To be happy with who I am - this weight is the only thing about myself that I truly hate.

4. To make my husband proud of me...don’t get me wrong he is freaking awesome, has never ONCE treated me badly or made me feel like I am less than great because of my weight. Just want to be able to go out in public and not think in the back of my mind how I would be embarrassed to be seen with me. It’s a weird psychological thing.

5. To be able to fit in seats and not feel like I’m squishing the person next to me.
