Tears of Joy Finally!Rave!



Recommended Posts

I am 7 weeks post gastric sleeve and it has not been an easy 7 weeks! At times I have even regretted having the procedure. Today, something amazing happened! I have a job interview tomorrow and I was dreading trying to find something to wear because most of my business suits are uncomfortable.I have a brand new suit that I’ve had for two years and I never wore it because the jacket was tight on my arms and the skirt was a little short (because I have a big booty). I decided to try the suit on because I have lost almost 40 pounds and I wanted to see if there was a real difference in how my clothes fit OMG! The suit is almost too big now! I was shocked! I was so happy I started crying tears of joy and modeled the suit for my husband. I thought it was too soon to notice a difference in my clothes, but this weight loss is REAL! I’m encouraged to keep striving to make my weight loss goals.

Yeah baby!!! See? This is when it starts to feel Forkinfantastic!!! The pain of the early learning curve is hopefully mostly non-existent and the elation of seeing the rapid body changes (weight, shape, tone, energy, health improvements) just takes hold and gains momentum like a runaway train!

Work it girl!

Good luck tomorrow. You'll rock!

I LOVE BariatricPal. These forums help me feel like I have a "family" of supporters who understand and empathize the experiences that we all share in this weight loss journey! I was elated to get replies of encouragement, and well wishes as I prepared to go to my interview this morning (which I think went really well). I may never meet you wonderful people face to face but please know that your kind thoughts/words made me walk a little taller and prouder today. I too, will make it my effort to encourage my "Bariatric sisters and brothers. We are a unique community and sometimes our own flesh and blood don't get it, but to know that there is someone out there that does makes this journey a lot easier. Thank you BariatricPal and thank you my B-Family:)
