I'll experience my first summer at goal at the end of this year (Southern Hemisphere), so I'm really curious to see how differently I feel in the heat.

On the flip-side, this winter we're currently in down here... I feel the cold like I never did before. I look at other folks who aren't rugged up like the Michelin Man in puffers and beanies and multi-layers and wonder how on earth they can stand it! I've never been so low on insulating blubber!

Ha, yeah, I've never been so cold as I've been since surgery. It think it's getting better, but it's summer so I can't tell. Except that the heat is not bothering me... like at all.... like I barely sweat. I imagine the winter will be cold again for me. Will see soon enough.

Crossing my legs when sitting in a chair. Putting on socks is easy, sitting or standing. Bought a new pair of pants 3 months ago that I can barely wear anymore because now they're too big too. Almost never sweaty. No huffing and puffing when walking or hiking. Bought a kayak and don't feel too big for it. No longer worried that camping chairs will buckle under me. Aches and pains in my hips and legs are nearly gone. All in all, all is good!

Wow can't wait to experience all of the above, congratulations you've done well so happy for you👏👏👏👏😊😊😊

I was able to sit at a student desk! Last year(my surgery was June 7th)I literally had to wedge myself into the desks and push myself out... today I sat in one and had room to lean back. I mean it was actually not uncomfortable. Total 180 from end of school last year. Quite tickled!

This makes me remember my son's teacher conferences. They would always want us to sit in the tiny student chairs. My husband is 6'10" and a big guy and I was almost 400 pounds. Um. Nope! [emoji23]
That's awesome to be able to fit into a student desk!

So pre-surgery I was wearing 3-4XL T- shirts at work. Part of pre-planning this year we were given 2 school T-shirts and I got AND FIT the XL! Total shocker-i knew when I picked XL I might still have some weight to lose but nope! It fit nicely! I'm 8 1/2 weeks out and ounces away from 60lbs and I fit an XL!!! So tickled!

Yeah the desks were my enemy! I felt embarrassed each time I had to push myself out because I just couldn't simply get up-I was wedged in.

This is great. It reminded me of my then 3 yr old nephew wanting to take me for a drive in his little child’s gator. Could easily fit my bottom in the seat. It was pretty freaky - never would have imagined being able to fit in a little child’s seat. Of course I couldn’t get my legs in so I dangled them over the front of the gator’s bonnet. Amusingly, he refused to drive me cause it wasn’t safe.

Buying a pair of pants according to my measurements. Getting the pants home and looking at them and thinking these will never fit. Trying them on. Shocked that they fit.

I would fit into those school desks now. There was one building at school with the worst desks that were attached to the floor. I suffered in those classes!

Being able to fit in medium to small and even extra small sizes 😳😳

It's baffles me everytime.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      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.

        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
