Before surgery i was at a 4XL Shirt. finding 4XL was nearly impossible as most big box stores only have up to 3XL if that. I was having to stretch out the 3XL shirts. Today i decided to buy some new shirts. XL. and sure enough they fit perfect. Excited because now i can fully shop at almost any store. Especially the branded stores at the mall. As for pants I was at a 54 or 56" i dont remember. and i am at a 38 pants size now :) Still a bit high on the pants size. many of the stores i use to love carry up to 36. Still some work to do to get down in weight more. :)

That's awesome! I haven't bought any new clothes yet. Thanks to the oversized clothes trend I've been wearing my men's 2x shirt like a dress lol. I'm sooo excited to hopefully be able to buy from the 'straight size' section in stores! In women's sizes I'm a 1x, which is in most stores but my goal is to be a medium/large. It has to feel amazing to be able to just walk into a store & KNOW everything there is an option

That's awesome!!! You must be so happy and excited. Pre-surgery I was size 26/28. Right now I'm a size 22 and about to have to go down to 18/20. So so crazy lol Never thought I'd see this again. It's been more than 17 years.

I went from size 26 to 18 and heading toward 16. I've been wearing a lot of leggings that are kind of form fitting so I won't have to buy much in the future. My issue is I'm a bit of a shopaholic so I don't know how long I'm going to last without buying something new while waiting to drop more weight. 😏

Don't do what I did and invest a ton of money into clothes before you hit your goal weight...20-30 more pounds can make a huge difference on a smaller body, and now I have a whole box of clothes I bought at "in-between" sizes that are falling off of me. I went from a 3X to an XS in a year.

Argh, I did the same thing! It’s hard to resist the increased fashion options as you size down. Plus-sized options are a lot better than they used to be, but even so…

That’s a great achievement!!

I was a 32/34 top in January… down to a 28 pre surgery… can’t wait until I am even smaller sizes

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
