I don't miss kids (and adults) bumping in to poles, walls, or other people because of staring at me.


Ok, i got one sorta in the same vein: i wont miss ME bumping into corners or walls because i underestimate how big I actually was.

Yes to not missing so many of the same things. Yes, to not missing bumping into walls, tables, ... & all the resulting upper thigh bruises. Yes, to loving being able to buy any clothing I like, except in stores that don’t stock small enough sizes. Yes, to loving being able to zip up long boots. Yes, to not missing having to sit down & physically lift one leg up over the other to put on tights. Yes, to not missing being knocked & bumped because my body oozes over the seat into the aisle on planes.

Love that I don’t need the entire bath sheet to dry myself anymore - half an ordinary towel is ample. Love I am able to play with my nieces & nephews longer & don’t need to sit down after a couple of minutes. And I love that two of them can sit next to me on an armchair with one on my lap now.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
