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

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

IKWYM! I put on a size 16 not expecting to get them past my thighs let alone button them, but my 22's were getting dangerously loose, luckily baggy is in. Not only did they get past my thighs but I was able to button them without laying down or sucking in. I was in tears. I mean you know you'll get results but going from 26-28 to 16 in 6 months just puts me in awe. My youngest(12F) told me today she saw an old picture of me and didn't realize until that moment just how much weight I had lost.

I’ve lost 30lbs preparing for surgery (on Dec 5) and the most exciting NSW for me is that when I take a bath my butt no longer serves as a stop gap when draining the tub. Previously Water would be able to pass by but now there are multiple inches between my sides and the tub walls on both sides.

A local online platform had a big sale on clothing recently. I was really frustrated that all the size M shirts were already sold out and only bigger sizes up to 5XL were available. I was complaining to my wife and then she started laughing and reminded me that is this not what I was complaining about last year 😂.

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 LOVE Torrid jeans, I will actually be sad to size out but still looking forward to it. I don't even know where to find good jeans. HAHA! I plan to go shopping with my cousin who has my style and smaller so she can guide me on where to find jeans equivalent to torrid!

That’s how I felt sizing out of Avenue’s petite butter denim Jeans which were so comfortable. Not that I’m complaining about being too skinny now!

It's nice to see finally see your body's shape & not just rolls when you see your shadow!

Put my Apple Watch on for the first time since pre-op yesterday. I used to have to have it on the furthest hole thingy because it’d be too tight otherwise. Put it on and it was way too loose on that same one I used to need. Can hardly believe it.

I have three.
1. I have reached that point where my armpits are actually pits. Weird.
2. I can feel my hip bones. And my hip bones can feel stuff. Weirder.
3. I can row on the rower with my knees inside my arms instead of outside my arms. The weirdest.
It feels so strange but I love it.

Bitter sweet.

I lost my wedding ring. Before surgery I had to take it off because it was so tight.

Then about a month after was able to put it back on, a smidge tight but comfortable. Within a few months loose side of comfortable and before I new it too big.

I noticed when I dried my hands it would slip off into the towel while drying (etc)

Then, all of a sudden it was gone. I dug threw the trash piece by piece and searched the entire house! Next we are taking the bathroom drain apart to see if it fell in.

It wasn't expensive, more of just a statement. It sucks and is bothering me!

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.

I don't know how much of this is due to weight loss vs just getting older, but according to the marks on the wall at my Mom's house, I'm almost 3/4 of an inch shorter now than in 2007. Guessing I had pretty fat feet! ... or fat on the top of my head, Lol!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
