I love going to craft shows and I love to buy rings but they never fit me and they'd always have to be sized for me or made specially. I was about a size 9-10. Yesterday I went to a craft show and most of the rings either fit or were on the big side! The ones that fit were about a size 7! The down side of this is now I have to have all of my old rings sized down, but I'm waiting until my weight is stable.
Same! Rings are my favorite jewelry and I have a ton, but they're all size 10. I wear a 7 but now but almost a 6. I sure miss my wedding rings but I'm wearing a temporary one for now until I get them resized.
It's so good to have smaller fingers!
Great NSV for you!

I do not know if it counts. I am used to take my blood pressure every morning after taking my pills.< br> I normally just slide my arm in the sleeve of my monitor without adjusting the Velcro.
Well, yesterday I had to re adjust the sleeve because it was too loose in my arm [emoji3]
Absolutely counts! That's awesome! Congratulations!

Anybody here had knee pain that got better after surgery? When that happens for me, it'll be a HUGE nsv. It's gotten a lot better 57 lbs later but still have pain when going up the stairs.

Yes! I tore my meniscus years ago and had horrible knee pain. Tuesday will be one year since my weight loss surgery. I’m down to my goal weight and NO knee pain. It’s amazing! Now I love to walk again. It’s helpful not having an extra 100 pounds weighing me down.

For months I wore a cheap rubber thingy (I bought on Amazon) around my wedding rings to keep them from falling off. I finally got them resized after being at my goal weight.

Weight loss surgery was one of my best decisions. Can’t wait to hear all about your successes too!

I bought the spiral ring size adjusters from Amazon. Loop around band until the ring fits & snip off the extra. The spirals come in different widths to fit around narrow or wider bands. I have a couple of antique rings that can’t be resized down enough to fit my fingers because of the shank & design of the settings so the size adjusters have been a lifesaver.

Sat down in the laundromat chair today for the first time in ages (Covid meant not loitering inside) and experienced not standing up with the chair stuck to my arse. In fact there was a good five inch space of extra room for... something five inches to sit beside me.

Which means all white plastic chairs are no longer my nemesis. I'm cool with them now. We hang out.

An oldy, but a goody: Mr. (effortlessly) carried me up stairs last night cuz i was being sucky about stubbing my toe 😂.

When he first did this a couple years ago during weight loss phase, I felt self-conscious and uncomfortable. Nowadays (3+ years out) im like: “Carry Me!” any chance i get 😇

I have those!

Been using them on my wedding and engagement rings for a while now and they perform their function well. I may just bite the bullet and get the rings resized proper? I wanted to get them re-set in a new style but Mr. seemed against it (i guess he prefers me to keep them in their original style that he oicked out 🙄)

It's not my weirdest non-scale victory, but it might be my proudest.

I took two flights and did not need a seat belt extender. I was also able to use/fit into the airplane lavatory during the flight. It's been 20+ years since I could claim either of these.

This is odd because I feel like a lot of people prefer more showy clothes after losing weight but my weird NSV is that I can actually do the baggy look now and not look like it was my only option or I'm a big ball hahaha. I love the Korean Hanbok clothing style (google it) and am so excited to be down more lbs to REALLY rock it! Here's my first Hanbok inspired outfit. 20220321_113452.jpg

Woops I looked up the wrong term. Hanbok is traditional Korean dress. I am thinking the modernized version mixed with street style. Korean fashion tends to be baggier/oversized look **** hope to rock it completely one day!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
