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



Recommended Posts

I finally had to go shopping for jeans. I have went up and down so much over the years I had a HUGE range of sizes so I have been just working through the clothes I had in my closet.

Well 2 NSV's this weekend:

1, I have shrunk out of all the stocked sizes, which means I am officially the smallest I have been in my adult life!

2, Size 16 fits loose! 14 is uncomfortably tight but did (barely) button! (Started my journey at a size 26)

I finally can buckle my seatbelt on the plane without an extender. It had to happen twice for me to believe it!. Saw the Lion King on Broadway and I had extra room in my seat!! What a feeling!!!

These leather boots. They are "Born" boots and usually around 200 bucks. I got them at Goodwill for 8 bucks. My calf was 23.5 at my highest weight and I really couldn't get knee high boots. I had a pair of extra wide calf boots back then that I broke the zipper on with my meaty old calves! I've always had "athletic" (I used that word extremely loosely here lol) calves so even now I'm around 15.5 inches, but these are regular calf boots and I could zip them and I'm so happy!

First off, AWESOME boots! Secondly, I had a similar NSV. Mine were riding boots, though. (I ride horses). ❤️

I had a really odd NSV that ended up being a bit expensive lol. I’m only 4 weeks post op, but I was forced into a corporate meeting where I was going to have a wear a suit. I was PISSED. I have smaller and larger sized suits, but I was between the sizes I currently owned. Wasn’t about to invest in another suit. I managed to find something halfway decent at Kohls, and I was able to fit into a X-Large or Large off the rack. (the large size was generous and stretch, of course). Then I freaked out because all of the dress shoes I have are too narrow and small. I went to DSW and they were having a boot sale. Well, I went wild. I was so happy to be able to fit into tall REGULAR calf sized boots that I bought, ahem, SEVERAL pairs. 💰💵💸🤑. I couldn’t find pumps that fit, so I resurrected a pair of old pumps I had for the suit 🤣. My husband was confused because I went to buy dress shoes and walked out with two HUGE bags of boots. Lol. Good thing he loves me. Pic of me with a Christmas dress I’m planning to wear, and red knee high boots!

It's strange, I went this last weekend, and shopped for boots, and guess what?? Didn't need the wide calf either! Whoo hoo!

I went grocery shopping today & I DIDN'T SWEAT. I would always sweat doing anything out, no matter how hot or cold somewhere was & it was embarrassing. Today that wasn't an issue

I had bought some of the Hello Kitty Forever 21 pajama pants in large as a wishful dream. I received my pair in the mail and held them up like "am I sure she didn't send the kids size??" Tried them on and I was absolutely shocked to find that they fit perfectly and without strangling my legs. I could've actually cried. Add onto that that I also got a pair of Torrid sleep pants in size 0 (sizing down from size 1 because before WLS the 1s could run large especially in the lounge/pajama pants). The 0 was so large on me that I had to reorder a 00. I'm so unbelievably happy and I never thought I'd get here.

large in one store and an 0 in another? how's a girl to know what to know what size to get???

a couple years ago, i ordered a pair of ski/snow pants online. i normally would have just ordered a small, but upon checking the sizing chart, my measurements suited an XL (probably should have ordered an XXL though cuz the calves were a little snug when i got them). And no they were NOT kids ski/snow pants, i checked! 😂

And I am especially careful when I buy clothes made in Asia because their sizes are significantly smaller than US and EU sizes. I remember getting a pair of harem style pants and they fit like tights lololol.

Torrid is a plus-size store, so their size 0 is equivalent to a large in non-plus sizing.

It was weird for me to size out of plus-size stores. For my entire adult life, I was limited to a handful of stores that made clothes in my size, and now that I can find clothes in my size almost anywhere, the options are overwhelming and I have no idea where to shop!

I just went shopping for the first time! I used to be a size 3x/4x. This is a large & it's somewhat a loose fit! It's perfect for what I want this winter but I was so sure it'd be form-fitting. I can't believe I'm in the 'straight size' section now

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
