Very impressive less than a week after emergency surgery! I’d use every excuse to live in leggings & sundresses πŸ˜‚

IKR?! I still fit my booty and legs into the "stretchy" skinny pants. And they are low cut so missed the majority of the swelling. But I have to say my tummy isn't that distended anymore. I've walked like a beast since Friday early morning. :) psst. I won't post these publicly, but check you pm box. :D

Clean sheets, underwear that fits really well and going to a restaurant/bar that has sugar free lemonade.

Went to the mall yesterday and stopped in Chicco's. The lady working there asked if I was shopping for myself. I said yes and she said, "I don't think you are going to find much in here to fit you, you're a little to thin for us." Ok then, Macy's petite department here I come! Petite XS please!

Shopping more towards the front of the Store where pretty colors, sweeter styles and smaller sizes,no longer having to ask where the larger sizes are or asking a clerk " Just How Large do your clothes go?, not shopping in the Plus sizes which are invariably next to the Rest Rooms, wonder if they don't care if you sneak in there and change into something new and steal it? More Obesity Contempt. I also like well made beds and clean smooth sheets.
A compliment, at least I'm going think it's that way, Met up with an old Friend yeah EVERYBODY MY AGE ARE OLD but not to digress, I recognized her right away. She said " Until You Spoke, I wasn't sure it WAS YOU! You're the size you were when we were in High School!" Yeah, I probably am but I Don't Look the Same as I did then. No longer" Show Room Fresh" but. then each blotch and scar means I met the challenge and still survived what the World threw MY Way! So they and a few wrinkles, negible in the Grand Scheme of Things . Don't you think if you roll with the punches you can still bounce to Your Feet Once Again?

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me inΒ a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told herΒ i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you?Β or is it just me) Β 
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
