Thats good stuff Liz keep up the good work you look beautiful!!!

I myself have started to notice that the clothes I haven't worn in a couple years are fitting now. I also had to put in an order at work for more uniforms.

My NSV, I bought a pair of size 12 jeans for later...and I tried them on and they fit NOW!! Im 9 weeks post op and started off at a size 16. The size 12's are really snug, but I cant believe I can get them on (buttoned and zipped ;-) )!

Everyone is doing so well! I love to hear all about NSVs.

-I always thought of my lab partner and thought thats what I want to look like. Well the other night we swapped some clothes and all the clothes I got from her were all a little too big!

-The fact that I can actually swap clothes with my friends! who would have known I would see the day!

- I now wear a size M top and a size 12 bottom. I used to be a 3x/2x and 26/28.

-I work in a store where designer is everything and I could never fit into designer jeans until now! I'm offically a size 32 in jeans.

-I have run into a few people I went to high school with and none of them recognize me. This is nice but it is also really embarrasing when you say hi and they look at you like you're crazy.

i bought my first pair of jean shorts -- EVER! and guess what? they are a size EIGHT from zara.. and even a little loose around the waist! i actually considered going back and exchanging them for a 6, but i've never tried that low a size and it just seems crazy to me. next time i'm around there i promise i will try on the smaller size... but for now i'm just gonna enjoy these shorts while its still hot outside!

my goal size at the beginning of this journey was to wear a solid 8.

Good job Jane!

I have to use a belt now for my size 38 work shorts. I've always dreamt about being able to wear anything in the 30's... and now I'm more than halfway to a 36. Woo! Kind of ike Jane said though, anything smaller than a 38 seems crazy right now.

I have two NSV's to post!

1. Got my hair cut...no chopped off...SHORT! Like above my shoulders! This is a big deal for me because I've always had super long hair that I wore down...like a shield or security blanket covering my body or something. The biggest amazing thing is that I'm comfortable not having my hair to hide behind and *gasp!* might actually even like my new hair style! lol

2. People have been noticing the weightloss! I've seriously had like 10 different people comment on how good/how much thinner I'm looking over the past week or so. Feels so good! Especially since my scale hasn't been moving much lately and I've been feeling so frustrated lately.

Two great NSV's! Looking forward to more throughout this process!

I had one that I realized yesterday. So to ride the bull at a club i go to you have to be under a certain weight. Now when I started my journy I was almost 90 lbs and thought I would never be able to. I as of a few days ago could now ride this bull if I wanted to. I am so excited

Wow. That's awesome. Good job! I'm still counting the days where I can start wearing clothes from Pacsun.

And Angie, the size 31's look great on you.

Awesome Job!

thanks MrRiceGuy...

yeah it's strange because remembering back to when I was 165 I wore a tight 14 from american eagle...now I wear a comfortable 12 at 183...has there been a change with vanity sizing or something in the last 5 years? :S

Wow, I haven't worn 38's since I was in high school and worked out A LOT. I'm happy that I'm down to 42's. 38 is closer to my final goal. I'm jealous. Good job, duder!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
