pre surgery non scale victory



Recommended Posts

I am a high BMI girl (over 60 :( ) but have changed my diet, worked on eating disorders and just tried to change my life this year. Been doing pre op Keto diet since late august waiting on my surgery date. Down 70 lbs this year so yay there..

My NSV was my wardrobe changes! i was buying mostly size 34 shirts ( a few bigger). I saw a shirt on Amazon that i liked that was biggest at size 28. I ordered it for “later” after surgery- but as a lark i tried it on and it fit quite well!!

I wore it yesterday and got asked for the first time if I had lost weight. Guess clothes that fit make a difference;) I went and ordered four more size 28 shirts. If they fit too, I am going to purge most of those size 34 and higher and never look back!

I am trying to get below 60 BMI for surgery (somewhat a stall right now, but that’s ok - i am staying steady) but I am really enjoying this victory!!!

Congrats!!! I love when the scale reflects the hard work, but the non scale victories are even better. My pre surgery bmi was 63, so I completely feel you there. You got this :)

was 73.2 BMI january of this year… now down to 61.34. i have also shrink my belly from 72” to 59”… I can fit in places/cars soo much better… (Now if only my face fat would reduce!)

the scale can be a stubborn thing, but staying the course or working harder has paid off each time the scale didn’t budge!

You're doing so well!!! You're already much lower in weight and bmi going into surgery than I was. You'll be awesome afterwards if you're this disciplined now. I can't wait to see the changes in your life and body and health once you're on the other side of it. Keep going!!!
