Weirdest things you are looking forward to after surgery



Recommended Posts

What a great hopeful topic!

Mine are:

1. Travel on an airplane comfortably, be able to put down the tray.

2. Wear comfortable clothes that doesn't pull tight across my belly or have to wear sizes too big and they sag around my shoulders in order to fit my mid section.

3. Be able to cross my legs.

4, Run with my dogs.

5. Have a baby, healthily.

That’s a great one .. being on plane and being able to put the tray down and still have room between my belly and tray is one I look forward to also 👍🏼

Sounds weird but -

Running up my credit cards at the Mall on cute, fashionable clothes! (I won't think twice about the interest rate!) Buying the ones I look at now, knowing they will never make my current size in.

I'm not kidding, I have a shopping plan laid out! By summer 2020, I will be covered in cute shorts, maybe a crop top and a very stylish swimsuit!

I have a son who lives in Hawaii and I will be Hawaii bound for sure. To visit of course, but to catch some rays on my glistening toned body & trot around in a swimsuit, not shorts and a tee shirt. ALOHAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

What is he doing to ME? Well my surgery- needful offspring ,your BMI IS 38,mine is 33.2 I am now merely Obese heading, towards overweight. Sorry Charlie the tuna, Stsrkist do not want you either!

Fitting in a tun without worrying about not fitting or bot being able to get up,

Being able to get out of the tub without feeling like I'm going to fall and break bones each time. And being in the tub without my stomach sticking out of the Water.

Oh and wearing something besides 2X graphic tees every day. That's all I feel comfortable in now. And wearing a well fitting bra to make the ladies look better. Lol.

i hear u on the t-shirts (but mine are just plain). I look forward to when my husband cant wear mine. The only diff is that all mine are v-necks. (and then i wear a feminine scarf over them to not look like a total non-woman)

To quit asking myself every time I go into a public restroom,"Why do these keep getting smaller and smaller?!"

To get up off the couch unlike a pregnant woman.

I've got a weird one. 😉

I'm looking forward to being able to shave my legs...and not miss a section because I couldn't reach or see it!

How's that for weird?

Shaving ones legs is one I never thought about. I haven't given up yet, but the times I do shave have gotten far and few between.

And the size of the public restroom stalls! that's a good one as well. I do think they have started making them smaller, like airline seats.

      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!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
