Had loop DS on November 18. HW 308, SW 287, CW 260.

I'm already down a pant size, had to buy a new belt because I got tired if punching new holes in the old one, even went down a shoe size! My 3XL hoodies look awful on me, and 3XL button shirts that strained at the buttons when I sat down are incredibly baggy on me and make me look like a hobo.

And my eyesight send to have drastically improved, I haven't with my glasses since I got home from surgery.

I pulled on some "slim straight cut" jeans (though did 40 waist) and my wife told me to "bring those ass cheeks over here!" Which I happily obliged ;)

Thank goodness I like cheap clothing at Walmart, I can restock my wardrobe for cheap until I settle close to my goal weight.

I'm there with you! I got a few sale things to get me through the winter. My new flannel shirt is XL (had been wearing 3XLT) and my new vest is also XL. I went to REI and fit into EVERYTHING I tried - some was XXL and some was XL. Previously I was only able to shop in the big and tall section.

I bought a pair of size 42 waist pants, still waiting for those to fit but I recall buying size 50 this summer for my Europe trip and I'm almost in the 42s so I'm getting closer!

They need to make leggings and jeggings for men because I am pretty sure that's what I'll be living in until I hit goal 🤣 I'm not even sure what pants size I wear right now because I've only bought leggings! I want to lose a little bit more before I go trying on jeans to size them! I did just buy two shirts that I really like, so I'm hoping they'll at least look good through the winter.

I feel like my eyesight has gotten worse, so I am so jealous!!

Congratulations on your successes! Keep up the hard work!

That is so smart! I knew there had to be some kind of a similar option for men!

Yeahhhh, lmao. My brain is fried from the holiday season and my husband refuses to wear anything of the sort, so sweatpants didn't even cross my mind. 😂 I guess I'm thinking more along the lines of office wear or things to wear out that don't look quite as casual. I have so many leggings that would pass as acceptable at the office, do men have an alternative like that? There probably is, if I'm being honest, I'm pretty clueless about fashion.

For a normal work casual office? No, not really. Guys don't have anything that would work that I know of. My joggers and athletic pants wouldn't pass. Luckily I work in a very casual office (shorts and sandals in the summer all the time) so I can get away with it.

Isn't it fun to try on smaller clothes and they fit? Congratulations to you all on your transformations!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
