breezing by the plus section



Recommended Posts

for the first time in 10 years, i finally breeze by the plus section without even glancing at it. it was so weird in the beginning once i got to "normal" sizes. i felt so unsure that i would fit into "regular" sizes. i started at a size 24 last November and now i am a .... wait for..... SIZE 8. that's 8 sizes down in 8 months and i am still not even at goal weight! when i was 140lbs before, i was a size 12. muscle certainly weighs more than fat! i can't remember the last time i was a size 8!!

also... so.many.more.clothing.options. HALLELUJAH.

Yeah April, isn't the selection fantabulous when you leave plus sizes behind! I have reverted to Junior sizes, Okay I admit, it's the Upper side of the size range, but I AM STILL LOSING AFTER ALL!

It feels good to go to the smaller size sections of stores . . . but it still amazes me (surgery in 2016) that I can fit such small clothes.

Congrats to everyone on their loss - -#imaloser

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
