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

Sitting down and crossing my legs with out straining or keeping it up on the other leg.

Still my most amazing accomplishment and now my favorite way to sit. I feel a little smug(truth be told) each time I cross my legs at the knees and keep them there without effort. Like, "Wow! Look what I can do!"

I’m only five weeks out and I can already comfortably cross my legs like a woman instead of the wide cross-legs like a man I’ve been having to do for years. 😂

I've said before and I'll say it again... crossing my legs like a lady and not requiring a death grip to keep them there is my greatest victory so far. I mean the weight loss and energy and added ability and clothes are great but by golly I can sit like a lady comfortably! I never realized how much it bothered me until I could do it.

speaking of sitting... being able to keep the legs closed while seated without crossing ones legs (i.e., knees together and keeping the "gap" closed) with zero effort is pretty awesome too 💪🏼😂

Seeing myself in pictures and not being horrified... feeling kinda cute.

I feel like I look less bloated all over, hadn't realize I had a back hump till I compare them now. I was using shein since they are cheap when I needed a top for a work event or a birthday, I was using 3x in their clothing and today I tried a 2x that fit big, and the 1x fit nicely. Most tops are looser, or they are longer, my jeans/undies are baggier. Can't wait till I fit in the dreaded too small closet.

Found an old log w my old measurements. My waist used to be 44-45 inches. My waist is now 35 inches.

I've lost 10inches. Almost a whole foot!

I finally fit into straight sized t-shirts. At my highest weight, I was in a 4x or 5x. Now I'm sitting here in an XL.

Now I can wear the t-shirts I got from walking races that I couldn't even put on when I finished the race.

Can't wait to see where I end up after surgery.

Mixed emotions though, because I have some t-shirts that I really like that I could go camping in. I think I'm gonna make them into throw pillows.

I noticed recently that I close the car door AS I am getting in.

Usually I would get in and adjust and all that and THEN close the door. Now it is all in one quick smooth motion, I am pulling the door closed as my second leg is going in and I don't have to adjust myself.

We recently moved to a new apartment. Guess who was up on the ladder all day installing curtain rails, hanging curtains, photos etc. I can't remember the last time I was on something that is more than 20 cm above the ground 😂. I can't use my weight as an excuse to tell my wife that I can't climb on the ladder and hang stuff anymore.

Skipping meals and hard labor during the past week seems to have paid off. I lost 4 kgs and now down to 89 Kg (from 150 kg before WLS)

      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.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
