Purge the closet Day! Time has come Cyber Monday

Recommended Posts

As i close in to the end of the weight loss journey, Actually kinda really content with my current size, But according to all the Calculators and apps still need a dozen more pounds, It is time .................................

So for those of you who have not seen my rebel post - I decided when i did the surgery to not buy clothes or get a hair cut and shave only when i could not handle it any more!

Yes i showered and stayed clean just took the attitude lets be a homeless vagabond clean beach bum during this journey to add a little excitement and variety. I have two teenagers and this was fun to piss them off - So for the first 75 pounds stood strong to my Game.

I can take a size 50 pair of cargo shorts and with two zip ties, pull two belt loops together, add a binder clip and i got some 40's - so the shirt is huge and baggy, No problem just do a side pull and a piece of masking tape and you are good to go! Lets not discuss the seamstress miracles i can do with binder clips and clothes pins!

So finally i have decided to come back to earth! and End the game - For the last couple months i have added a few clothes that fit but now its time, I have a huge walk in closet filled with clothes, so off to home depot to get lawn and leaf bags we went yesterday, 9 Bags later i have a empty closet! It was kinda Sad, Some of my favorites i have had for years! But the time has come to let it go, I keep two complete outfits from when i was the biggest and sealed them in a vacuum seal bag for later viewing.

Went to my Barber shop today and he laughed ..... he was like WTF. Since i have had short hair my whole life - He asked what he should do/ BUZZ CUT LETS GET ER DONE!

I have the advantage over most of you living in Naples Florida, You can do the beach bum look and fit right in. Feel weird today and this was a event i was looking forward to but actually was kinda sad and strange.

Moral of the story - There is none, Just enjoy the journey and enjoy the throwing everything out. I actually donated all my stuff today - but its just a part of the journey !

Time to wreck the AMEX card on Cyber Monday getting clothes

I am kind of new here and a little on the shy side but this is so amazing. Thank you for sharing this! I have not had surgery yet but am looking forward to the day when I can get rid of clothes that are too big this time instead of giving away clothes that are too little for me cause I’ve gotten too big.
enjoy shopping!!

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

        I feel ya.
