Weirdest None-Scale-Victory - I'll go first



Recommended Posts

This is weird... but seeing my knee caps again. I haven't seen them since 2019.

My legs are still chubby but they're starting to look like a normal leg shape overall haha I took a picture of them because I was surprised to see it when I had my legs propped up on a table (not good manners, I know but no one eats or even sits out on this table in my household).

Yay to having visible kneecaps! 20220504_164705.jpg

: 3 I appreciate it. I'm still dealing with a lot of body dysmorphia. I def have weight to lose still but I carry most of it in my hips and lower stomach.

I'm not sure it counts as a "victory," but it's starting to hurt when I sit on a hard surface. My formerly-amply-padded tush must be shrinking. I'm going to need one of those butt cushions pretty soon!

I don’t think I will ever lose enough weight to make my cushion go away there. they do make butt pads though. They are like shorts with pads sewn in. 😂

You know I've been going though clothes sizes pretty fast. It would be cool if there was a place for bariatric patients to share and swap clothes. Just because we go through sizes so fast. That way we didn't have to buy clothes in a size we only be in for a few weeks or months.

Some bariatric surgery centers host clothing swaps. Mine doesn’t unfortunately but I have heard of some that do.

Wiping my own butt without breaking my back trying to reach [emoji2360]
I was happy about that too. I haven't admitted that it was an issue before but now that it's easier I'm just so happy about it.

I have been reading through these they are great by the way. I'm going through some of the same things.
1. I couldn't take my rings off without a huge effort and plenty of lotion. Now I can yeah without issues or lotion.
2. I can get up off the couch without rocking.
3. Not having to go in the big girl section for clothes
4. My daughter asked me what happened to my hands I was oh they just aren't fat anymore lol. She thought something was wrong.
5. Towels fitting right
6. Being able to walking longer and more often.
7. Being more flexible and energetic during sexy time.

We do clothes swaps in my local group. I also like Poshmark to buy and sell. Just listed a ton of stuff in sizes I will never wear again. Do you have any consignment stores to trade at? It’s a very cool predicament to be in! Welcome to the loser’s bench!!

Tami, Re #1, the rings. Windex works so much better than lotion. It sounds crazy, I learned that at a jewelry store years ago. I have used it since then and it really works better than anything else.

Hope your list continues to grow w/ NSV!

I've often thought this. Not only clothes, but Protein Shakes, too. (Can you tell I have a huge stockpile of shakes that taste nasty to me now?)

      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.
