The shirt is as old as the days long..... but the jeans are new.... Buckles size 27"... reg size 4.... These jeans make me look i have some what of a butt....IMG_0732.jpg.f8085d6f3456285374890da8fe152979.jpg IMG_0745.jpg.722df80d83d3780f325990e093799bf1.jpg IMG_0755.jpg.c4c402581b789ff26bb316da30a63d38.jpg

I am also wearing a size 4 (Old Navy) and a 27 from H and M. I don't know if they run big or are stretchy but the smallest part of my waist is 31.5 inches. Does your waist measure a 27? I assumed size 27 meant a 27 in waist. I am so confused with clothing sizes and hesitant to order anything online. I am 5'2ish and 125 but you have much better curves than me. I am basically a Sponge Bob rectangle. Do you wear size 4 consistently in different brands?

I’m on a bit of an emotional struggle bus, so I went with clothes that are comfy and just make me happy. I do have a meeting with my executive director, so I wore my fancy corduroy overalls instead of my denim ones 😂

Good morning lovelies!

I’m sooooo psyched to be off work today and to be heading to the studio in a few minutes.

I absolutely agree.
I'd like to add that there is nothing wrong with the female/human body. It's a normal, natural thing. The idea of what one should/shouldn't do or wear are just social constructs, and they change over time. Plus, pssssst - look up Jane Fonda's body painting spread. And, I'd like to add that showing her body has NEVER been a problem for her. And it shouldn't be. I have a ton of respect for people with the confidence and self love to do what they want like that.
This brings up something that has been on my mind with the "ideal" discussion. A bit of background: I was super obese my entire adult life. Either dieting or feeling ashamed because I wasn't dieting and "should" have been. While having an "ideal" is a fun exercise, it's really not something I'm serious about.
My work right now is not changing my body into what I think I want it to be, and never being satisfied with it, to learning to love who I am now while still doing the stuff I love (I actually love weightlifting and running).
Of course within that is a balance, I'm going to have plastics in a couple of years to reconstruct my stomach (and probably my boobs). But I don't want to keep chasing some major ideal. I want some peace, and I want to model that to my students.
I know that we all have our own goals and our own wants. That's great and awesome and part of what makes us all unique and such a fun group. These are just some thoughts I'm having as I process what it means to choose to be in maintenance.

Me, too! I love the way I look and to whom I am becoming at 60, especially in contrast to my previous 40 - 50's self. Given all the dream girls and their bodies aside (of course, it is wonderful to have a worthy dose of inspiration)... As long as it does not cloud our judgment, vision and body image that we are in fact each beautiful starlets in our own right. There will always be flaws and more to find if I seek to look for them. Of course, my bat wing arm shows through my left sleeve velvet sweater! But how many times will I be posing like that? And, I have yet to begin a toning program. I am okay with imperfect. I remind my clients perfection is neurotic but we will pursue excellence. I believe my all or nothing mindset in the past helped to fuel my obesity. I will not re-engage or jeopardize how far I have come. I hope you won't either? And, having been a professional model during college and grad school - models from the agency were starving, mean, unhappy, insecure and miserable souls. My heart bleed for them. Their beauty was truly only skin deep. Beauty to me is an internal temperature that will radiate hot or cold on the exterior. Wow, I Celebrate all our unknown and yet to be discovered movie stars here on our threads. What an honor to express our fears, disappointments, frustrations, as well as our dreams, hopes and triumphs, too.

I found these 3 pieces at the thrift store today. I really love the vest.
The 2nd pic is today’s outfit. Very simple, oversized sweater and leggings. The sweater wasn’t always oversized, 😂, but it’s still super comfy.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
