The biggest down side of surgery I have experienced so far...



Recommended Posts

Like everyone else, I have purchased a whole new wardrobe. Down to Medium and Small top size, and mostly size 8 with some size 6 pants. And with these sizes, I am having fun buying "CUTE" outfits. When I am big I focus on functional outfits, but I like the way these fit so I want cute too! BUT......... my 16 year old daughter keeps RAIDING MY CLOSET! I can't tell you how many of my sweaters she has already stolen. A co-worker and I were talking about shoes and I mentioned how my feet shrank. She asked what size and said she had a closet full of shoes she barely wore that don't fit her anymore. She gave me a bag full. Then my daughter immediately tried steeling the first pair she saw me wear! I feel like I have to add locks on my closet doors!

LMAO... I guess there are worse problems to have, but thought you might be amused like I am (when I am not mad that I can't wear the new top that I planned to wear today).

I'd definitely call that a non-scale victory, although it sounds like your daughter is the victorious one...😁

Sounds like you have an opportunity to raid her closet as well. Congrats.

Well, I am not confident enough in my body to raid HER closet lol. Plus, teenage girls can get away with a lot more than a 48 year old woman. She wears a lot of those crop style shirts and such. Her pants are also smaller (although we are close to being the same size - she is size 4-6, I am 6-8) and all her jeans are majorly ripped jeans lol. So unfortunately the clothing exchange is still a one sided theft that only she can partake in haha

On a separate note... I got a new bathing suit that I love :) One piece so that my stomach is held a little flatter than it really is.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
