What is something that you secretly look forward to, or looked forward to, when you started your journey? My surgery is still 2 months out, but one of my things is not to have to wear a bra extension anymore. You know that thing you wear because your bra won't meet in the back? I despise that thing. 😂

Being able to shop anywhere (although it wasn't much of a secret, LOL).

Finding casual blouses that fit right and don’t look like a tent. I hated the shirts I used to wear….they are getting better now that I am a little smaller…..can’t wait to see how the tops fit when I get closer to my goal.

Being able to shop in the regular sizes. I am still not down to my goal weight so I have only ordered a few things online thus far so I am still looking forward to this. I just wish my best friend would decide to have the surgery too so we can have fun shopping together like we used to. We still have fun shopping now but we shop for house decor and stuff like that, not clothes.

Well, I WAS looking forward to enjoying exercise, but I somehow think I may just be a slug no matter what size I am. I am looking forward to being able to move easily around spaces and not have to plan out my route depending on where chairs/tables/etc are (like when you get seated at the back of a restaurant).

And of course, I am looking forward to wearing "normal" sized clothes!

Going down the Water slide on a cruise ship without getting stuck! (Yep, I did it about 10 times!!)

I just want to be amongst people again and not feel so fat. I am staying home too much these days

Not being scared of having my picture taken or looking in the mirror. 😱😖

We actually just had a family photo shoot for our Christmas cards, and I wasn't horrified by most of them (a few bad angles or positions😝). 😄😂

Not asking for a seat belt extender on airplanes.

They sell them on Amazon. If you brought it with you, you could be more discreet than having to ask for one. Just until you get down to not needing one. Just a thought.

It’s been 2 months since I had surgery..at 5e first month the best news I received was that my A1C was at prediabetic #. I was at 7.8% a1c before surgery, 25 days after surgery my A1c went down to 5.8%. I’m also looking forward to the summer 2022 where I can finally wear a 2 piece bikini and have a somewhat even tan. Every summer I end up looking like an Oreo cookie, dark legs, dark back and arms and extremely pale midsection.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
