I'm not really a "designer" type person. I don't like that they always have big brand logos/designs, like I'm a walking ad for them. I feel like if they want me to advertise their brand, they should pay me! I have seen a similar product from a leathercrafter I bought a purse from for my mom, and that's a good idea - thanks!

I don't like the "flashy" ones either. The ones I look at are all very plain.

Yea you definitely wouldn’t like this one. It has the logo printed repeatedly on the vinyl or whatever it is. It’s muted but it’s still there in a plenty. Lol. But I really do love the versatility of this one.

When i first started, i said I wouldn’t buy any new clothes until i was done with weight loss. It helped that I am/was a low-key-hoarder of clothes so i had a whole closet full of “skinny” clothes I could shrink into.

BUT…when those clothes ran out (or just looked dated to me), i was all, eff this, im buying some new clothes that dont hang of me cuz i wanna look good. Yes, i spent on items that I would only wear for 2-3 weeks, but I looked GOOOOOD those 2-3 weeks wearing it! Lol

My one really big ticket item i splurged on was plastic surgery (which i got about 14 months post op).

BEST. PRESENT. EVER.

If i may be so bold to suggest, if you are gonna spend enough to purchase leather goods at the price tag of a small car anyway, maybe considering plastics instead. Its the gift that keeps on giving!

(or do both!)

I plan on doing both lol When I'm 18 months out, I'll be looking at plastics. But once I hit goal, I want something RIGHT THEN that I've always wanted but could never justify. The last time I was under 200 pounds, I was 20. I will be 44 next month, and it may take until I'm 45 to get there. So to hit a goal I've had for 25 years, yeah. I'll buy that LV set because it'll mean so much more than just a name brand purse. And then when I hit my 18 month post op point, I'ma get some plastics because I'm tryna be cute!!!! lol

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
