Running errands today. My size 4 jeans are too big, but work just fine with a belt. Seriously trying to stop losing weight so I don’t have to buy another whole wardrobe in smaller sizes. 🙄

Did you ever in your wildest dreams think that would be the case ?!?!
I like the soft look of the jeans, are they soft?

Never, ever, in a 100 million years, did I think I would be buying size 0 pants, which I did this weekend. Nor did I ever think I would struggle to stop losing weight. It is insane and definitely messing with my head. It is so scary to think about gaining weight, but I would benefit from a few extra pounds now. 🙄🙄🙄

The jeans are super soft and soooo comfortable, except for the part where they start to fall off without a belt cinching them up. 😂😂

I am feeling this same way. I can't stop losing weight. My goal was 135 and now I am at 130. I wish I could stop but it just keeps coming off. I have gone from a size 6 down to a 4 in just a month. It feels good but bad at the same time. I am sick of buying new clothes.

It’s freaky isn’t it that first time you have to buy size 0. The first time I did I just kept staring at the label. Mind boggling. I seem to waver between a 0 & a 2 (4 or 6 in Aust).

I’ve noticed my body shape has changed in maintenance. When I originally hit my lowest weight my body shape was quite up & down - no curves like I always had. But I’ve noticed the curves are coming back, even though my lowest weight is now only a pound more, & likely why I need a size 2 in some cuts. I think the remaining fat resettles. This may happen to you too. Have to admit I bought a couple of pants & skirts with elastic waists or drawstrings so I could wear them across a size if needed when I was still losing in maintenance. The slouchy look looks quite stylish when you’re a lower weight versus sloppy when we were bigger. At least it’s pretty cheap to have extra holes punched in a belt - LOL - though my shoe repair man does it for free (& Lindsay’s had to do a lot).

I’d love to have your long legs @WishMeSmaller or at least ones in proportion to the rest of my body. I’d be a good 5’5” if they were 🤣🤣🤣.

I have the same feelings. I feel excited about losing weight (after years of struggle), but bad about it as well because I am only about 10 pounds from slipping into a low BMI (<18.5). I want to be healthy, not anorexic. I know most people have weight rebound, so I have been planning for that, but I have a pretty healthy cushion at this point. 🤷‍♀️
Working on changing up my diet and exercise routine right now to try to find maintenance.

I DO TWIRL! And, you are right... a woman of any status, race or creed are to be celebrated. I am married, but do not have children. You can also be diminished if you aren't like most couples with children. That's okay, though - Bobby, Mr. and Mrs. Sophie make a happy fun family! As does MISS. Fab and fantastic Arabesque, our down under BEAUTY!




I think I'd love just the cake with no frosting,




cream or sauce.

So much freaky! Even more freaky, I put the pants on yesterday after washing them and now wonder if I should have gotten the 00. 🤷‍♀️

I really hope my fat resettles in my face...but it never seems to go where I want it to. 😂. Anyhow, I am less than two weeks from plastic surgery, so everything might change...again. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

Part of the reason I like the above jeans, is I think they make my legs look long 😂 Not that my legs are short to start with, but I love the long, lean look. Good thing I guess, since I have zero curves right now😂😂

Less than two weeks and I will have boobs again though. 😬 If I don’t get a waist or curvy hips/butt, at least I will have legs and boobs 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Ask the surgeon to throw in some extras! 😜

I bought this shirt 3yrs ago when I first reached goal, but this is the first time I’m wearing it.

Also I have new braided sandals after salivating of similar ones that a close friend of mine recently bought.

Love the shoes...and the top...and the curves! 😂

I will post all about my plastics, probably next weekend. I am supposed to have some Lipo to get some fat for my butt, but I honestly don’t know where they are going to take it from. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ The only real fat pad I have left is the center area of my abdomen. Definitely skinny girl problems 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

    • Crystalmoon

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
