Getting Excited



Recommended Posts

Though I don't have a surgery date, yet exceedingly excited without content for where this journey is about to take me...

I'm already browsing clothes I've had my pockets waiting for since forever (if ever). Boutiques that only sell small, medium, large. Reminding me of how retailer 5-7-9 in the movie Mean Girls got its name.

A shop that focused its collection on three sizes 5, 7 and 9.

I'm browsing online clothing stores too. Dreaming of the day I can fit into something other than oversized tees and yoga pants. 😌

Clothes browsing and wish-listing was honestly the best distraction and motivation pre and post-surgery. You'll be startled by how quickly you shrink through the sizes on your way to goal! Absolutely advise buying second-hand during the losing phase where possible, because the window of time with each size down is maybe a month or two. I ended up passing on items to goodwill that I didn't even get to wear!

I do still have a few "when i lose this weight" items I've had in the back of the closet that were suppose to be my motivation 😂

I've yo yo'd my entire life and kept most all my clothes over the years in sizes all the way down to 12s, hoping to one day fit back into them. It will be fun to clean closet with sizes going down rather than up. 🙃

I have clothes in all the sizes up and down too— i realized i needed help when i had to keep going bigger. I’m a month out and have retired several sweaters I just got at Christmas, a pair of work slacks and a pair of Jeans. Hoping to have enough on hand as i work my way down… but totally agree to buy used. eBay, Mercari, PoshMark— local consignment stores are my best friends anyway. Never hurts being green- but especially when you are changing sizes.

Have fun!

Don't buy too many, because I've had to have 3-4 rounds of donating things because every time I think I'm done I end up losing more.

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
