Soooooo Loosers A few questions for you.
What do you do differently now that you have lost a pile of weight?
Buying clothes is different. Before I would just buy what ever fit..even if it was too big, as long as it was not too small I bought it. The color or style or lack thereof didn’t matter. Now unless it fits properly and looks good, I do not buy it. Shopping is fun now. Not something I dread. I am more active and not quite as shy as I was. I used to live in flip flops or sneakers, now I wear heals every day. I burned all my flannel PJs *wink wink nudge nudge*
What do you do surprisingly the same?
I still pull the seatbelt allll the way out before buckling up like I had to before I lost the weight. And sometimes forget and just let it go thinking it will be snug and it zips back in and slaps me in the side of the face LOL I still refuse to sit in lawn chairs.
What has changed the most for you other than the scales or clothes size?
I try different things now that I would have just let pass by because I was too big to even try. This summer I went kayaking, and we did a lot of canoeing. And I went on rides at the Exhibition. Before I would just say, nah I’m too big and never even really consider these things.
What has change has surprised you the most, what happened that you were not expecting?
I actually went to the doctor about 2 strange lumps that appeared on my chest at the base of my neck. Once she stopped laughing she told me it was just my collar bones and now I could see them since I lost weight. (I do love her) I thought I had some strange tumor action going on and had convinced myself that I was going to die. Story of my life I thought, I finally loose weight, now I’m going to die before I can enjoy the new bod. We at least I’d make a better looking corpse (honestly, those were my thoughts)
How about a funny weight loss story:
I was in our village store one day last year and the owner came up to me and asked me if I was Carol McNeil’s sister , since I looked familiar and she could not place me. J My family is from another village so she had never seen my sister before, who is 5”10, red hair and gorgeous. I’m only 5”5 and have black hair and ..well we won’t go there LOL My daughter will be 18 in July and people have asked her if I was her sister when I drop her off or take her places – I thought your mom was coming sorta thing. The gossip train had my husband having an affair with some younger woman that had the guts to drive my car when I was at work and was EVEN seen walking with him through the village HOLDING hands in public with him one evening…the HUSSY!
I have a theory :)
With 3 new doctors in the Atlantic provinces doing surgery, it does not make sense that Dr. B's list is still so long.....unless...people have been leaving their names on Dr. B's list while going to the other's for consults...just in case.
I actually know of 3 people who have seen other doctors...1 Dr. S and 2 one of the Drs in
I suspect in the next 6-12 months Dr. B's list will decrease dramatically once the new surgeons start doing the surgeries and the "double- dippers" (hehehe) are done and are off all the lists
