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



Recommended Posts

Yesterday I went to the optometrist. Previously when they raised the chair in would moan and groan under my weight. This time it was a smooth and very quiet ride. Yay!.

I went out this weekend for my cousins birthday, and had multiple NSVs.

I was called "skinny" multiple times. 🤯 Got a couple of "whoa look at you girl" comments

People I haven't seen since before surgery didn't recognize me.

I danced!! and didn't care.. didn't care that I can't dance. Didn't care if people were staring at my horrible dancing skills. I just danced and didn't care... this is HUGE for me because all of my friends and family have ALWAYS been trying to get me on the dance floor at events and I just sit there by myself.... I HAD A BLAST!

I went to a theme park twice last week & fit in every ride! & not gonna lie, I also compared my saftey bar w other people's & was surprised to see mine go lower/tighter than the people who sat next/near me.

I'm especially proud since I had issues fitting in some of these rides at this exact theme park years ago

You look amazing! Congratulations! I wore similar high heel platform shoes recently. Unlike you, my feet certainly did hurt… but, nevertheless I was able to wear them! No way I could have done that when I was 100 pounds heavier!

I took my kids to the Water park this weekend and we all had a great time there. Guess who was on the slides and joined them on almost all the rides. It was so much fun and my kids were super excited that daddy can finally join the fun. That on its own made the WLS and the whole journey worth it.

My new NSV: I was able to finish an entire spinning class without panting for breath or quitting early! It’s amazing how much losing weight can make working out easier!

Now I’m training for a triathlon coming up in a few months!!

There are so many non-scale victories I have be blessed to experience so far 😊

Some of them include:

1. No longer having sleep apnea (so long C-PAP Machine!!)

2. Being able to purchase clothing from the mall or another regular retail chain store again.

3. Not feeling tired by mid-day; more energy.

4. Symptoms of depression and anxiety have drastically decreased.

5. Being able to keep up with my son when we do activities outdoors!

      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.
