WLS and Clothes



Recommended Posts

So, I'm down to a size 42 waist, down from a size 54 at my heaviest. I was wondering at what point I can start buying pants and shirts at a place like Target or Walmart again. (Yes, I know, they're not super high end, but I'm going to be losing more weight and I need interim clothing, especially with Fall/Winter on their way)

I'd check out their websites to see the sizes available.

Congratulations on your weight loss. My husband wore a 42 before he lost weight and could easily find pants/shorts at pretty much all the big box stores. I don’t shop at Walmart so I don’t know about them, but Target did carry some, not a lot. Their quality can be a bit inconsistent so the fit can also be inconsistent.

He had a lot of luck at Kohl’s and Amazon. You can find great sales and coupons for Kohl’s and if you check out Amazon Essentials line you will find awesome pricing.

42 and under are available at most places.
Even Kohl's has larger sizes now.

I cannot answer your question as I haven't bought anything but socks and underwear from WM in many years, I have to buy FR (Fire Retardant) clothes for my work so I just wear those jeans for everyday clothes as well, shorts, sweats, shirts, etc...I buy online. BUT, I just wanted to give you a huge congrats!!!! I know the feeling as we have almost the exact same stats. I was up to 420 in 2015, am 5' 10''. I was up to a 54 waist also. I am currently in a loose 40 and saving pennies for some 38s. I had a bunch of stuff, down to 36 because I had lost down to 190 but when I gained a bunch back (up to 330) I got pissed/depressed/whatever, and gave all my smaller clothes away....again. I had my revision from sleeve to bypass in June and now having to keep buying all these clothes all over again. Anyway, congrats on the amazing weight loss, keep it up.

Shoot, you're lower than me and in less time. What did you weigh on surgery day?

I assume you meant my original sleeve surgery, I managed to lose 45 lbs pre-op so I was at 375 on surgery date. As for my revision, I lost 30 lbs pre-op so was at 300 on 6/15/19.

Ah, that explains it. I was 360.8 on surgery day myself.

Try to get by on the minimum on purchasing. I made the mistake of buying new clothes when I thought I was close to losing what I needed. I went from a 44/46 jeans down to a 36/38 and thought I was close to being done losing inches. I’m now down to a 32/33 waist. Keep up the good work!

Walmart (love it or hate it) has great deals. I get the $3 tshirts and $6/7 athletic shirts. Also get jeans and shorts for under $20. Best bang for my buck when i was shifting sizes.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
