Hysterical! I know the feeling! I was waiting until I finished losing weight to buy new panties, but down over 90 pounds, the saggy ones weren’t working. I also donated my size 18 jeans and was sooo excited to squeeze into a size 4 that ran big!!!

size 18 to a size 4...wow. Great for you!!

My weirdest non-scale victory recently was getting in the bob cat to move some dirt around and the lap bar didn't bottom out and squish my stomach when I put it down! that was an amazing feeling!

I got over the corral fence without heaving and having to stop and readjust my center of gravity... just went up and over.

A whole new world: Being able to shop clothing sales and clearance. That hasn't been part of my life in many many decades.

During this transition period, check out thrift stores, too. While you are there, drop off your gently-worn too big stuff.

Now, I have always had wider calves than average, but when I weighed almost 400, they were super, super wide. I managed to find a pair of extra wide calf boots back then that fit but I could barely zip them up. I tried them on the other day and they're HUGE on me. I'm pretty sure I could fit BOTH calves in them now!

Not sure if this exactly counts as a non-scale victory since it involves scales...!

I haven't had the joy of experiencing this yet, but I just realized that now I can get weighed on the actual scale at my primary care physician's office, rather than just tell them what my weight is because I'm too heavy for it. That is exciting but not something I can share beyond here and with my husband!

I get it!! I had the same thing happen. Went to pull out my boots for the fall. Tried them on and could fit my fist in there. I always wanted to wear a pair of boots that had room between my calf and the boot. Unfortunately the ones I have don't stay up....but it was pretty exciting!!!

Went for a tattoo consult this morning and the guy said I had a “very lovely” back. Well, that’s a first 🤷🏻‍♀️

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
