The bright side of being in quarantine after WLS



Recommended Posts

1. The longer I go without seeing people, the greater my opportunity to surprise them with my new skinny self!

2. It doesn't matter that my bras don't fit, b/c I don't have to wear one!

3. By wearing jammies every day, I have no idea what size clothing I wear, so it will be a fun surprise when I finally decide to get dressed again!

4. Working from home, I don't have to worry about temptations from coworkers bringing in donuts, Cookies, etc.

5. Also no restaurant temptations, since I eat every meal at home.

6. I can use all the $$ I'm saving on not getting hair and nails done to get extra glamorous when I break out of here someday.

7. Amazon delivers my favorite Protein Shakes.

8. I have plenty of time to try various free workout videos on YouTube.

9. Plenty of time for weighing experiments, before shower/after shower, before pee/after pee; the possibilities are endless.

10. I can drink as much Water as I want, b/c I can pee every 10 minutes if I have to (which is also fun for #9).

Lol #2.

But seriously, I also like that I got my surgery just before quarantine.

In addition to the things you said, it has taken some time for me to get my energy back - I am glad I don't have as much to do right now. Also, I am glad that I don't have to try to eat in social situations until after my new stomach and I have had some time to get to know each other.

I agree. This is perfect time to really concentrate on yourself. I live in So FL where weather has been much warmer than usual for March/April. Most days I’m exercising outside by pool or in pool.
I tell all by the time I’m out of isolation I’ll almost be @ goal & Ill be nice & tan!
Only problem is the few bit of clothing I bought for Spring may be too big & never get chance to wear them! That should be my biggest problem. Also- I like you’re attitude!

It took me a couple months to get my energy back, so I can definitely relate!! Enjoy those naps while you still can!! Good luck!!

Yes! These two are especially true for me. I'm retired but when working it was so difficult (okay, impossible) for me to resist all the goodies coworker brought in, and once a month our manager bought a huge sheet cake to Celebrate the birthdays that occurred that month. Amazon monthly scheduled auto-delivery of my Protein Shakes is fabulous - plus they are less expensive than what they charge at my local stores :)

One more: I'm finally finishing some in-home painting projects I'd been putting off.

Thanks for the uplifting post - love it!

My #1 reason just got better! My work advised we may continue work at home until August!! If that's the case, they won't even recognize me by the time they all see me again!!!
