  1. Is that what it's called? Thanks!
  2. Stepped out of my comfort zone for a baby shower today. Maurice's size 2 tunic with leggings. I really didn't feel confident when I left the house but I sucked it in and wore this to the shower and a visitation.
  3. I really admire you. Congratulations on successfully maintaining your happy weight.
  4. A carnival ride with my niece! There was a spinning table to make the thing turn that did not touch my belly. This is all they why for me!
  5. Being 18 months out it is easy to get complacent. I still lurk but don't post much. I'm no veteran yet and still have plenty to learn but don't have the daily questions I did when I was going through the process. It's tough when you might not necessarily be telling everyone, I went through phases where surgery was all I wanted to talk about and I needed the board so I didnt drive my husband crazy!
  6. Wow. Just wow. I want in on this plastics party!! Good for you!
  7. My workout was working through the closet tonight in a major fashion show. The girls were well on display now that so many things are too big! I also donate to a woman's shelter and occasionally will see the ladies wearing my clothes when I drop off additional items. This trip is 5 4x dresses and a lot of shirts!
  8. I don't have any numbness, but I do get a lot of random bruising on my legs post op. And still now 17 months out but all my blood work checks out. Surgical positioning is very interesting!
  9. Been in a long stall but still fit in a 14 pants and a 2x shirt from Maurice's! Stalling is better than gaining.
  10. Lose it! Was my app of choice, I never integrated it with a fitness tracker though.
  11. Hello and welcome! I went with the sleeve because my surgeon performed it laproscopically instead of open. I really liked the surgeon and didn't want the infection risk of a traditional open surgery. I also was uncomfortable with rerouting my intestines and felt better about leaving things in the original order and removing a portion of the stomach. It amuses me to see that choice written down, but that's how I felt. Right now, I am maintaining a 170+ pound loss, not at goal, but feel pretty good!
  12. I attended my cousins wedding right after I was cleared for regular food. I drank a shake between the ceremony and reception. Then I picked the chicken out of the pasta and ate a few very well chewed green beans. I ate what was comfortable then my husband ate some off my plate instead of seconds and I went to talk with my great aunt who had an extra seat at their table. No one said anything. I carried drink drops in my purse...was it a cranberry vodka? Nope! Maybe throw something in your purse that you can eat and be chatty!
  13. Sunday, 13/14 capris from Maurice's and a 2x top from Gordmans that seems too tight to wear without something over it, but I did bc it was warm! When will I stop thinking of my weight in the 300's? Today my husband asked what I weighed in after the long weekend and I said still 394, it was does my brain screw that up?
  14. I am going on 16 months out and am still losing. It's harder to hit 10 pounds per month, but it has never fallen off for me so I keep plugging away.
  15. Size 14 Bandolino capris! This size is blowing me away. 3X cardigan from Dressbarn.
