What stands out in your mind as that first, OMG, I couldn't do this ever before?
I'm out a few years so I can't really remember the first thing. But I do remember being thrilled about so many things! Crossing my legs, being able to sit in a restaurant booth, playing on the floor with grandbabies, walking up stairs, not having to lean on a cart to get through the grocery store, getting out of plus size clothing.... and on and on and on!
Looking forward to following this thread and seeing what others have to add. NSV's are my favorite things ever pretty much =)
I took a trip with my sister after I was 4 months out and I was able to buckle the seatbelt on the plane and even pull it! I was so happy! Other things have been that I can get up off the floor or out of the bath without having to roll over on all fours and hoist myself out, lol! I can also see between my thighs and they don't rub together anymore, I can wear bracelets and watches that are not plus sized. I LOVE that I can shop in regular sizes and my favorite is that I am now smaller than my husband...

Finding myself going out at normal hours. Before I always picked the 10am movie or ate dinner at 4pm to avoid crowds, so I didn't have to wait in lines. Now I just go. I'm even starting to think about going on a cruise for our 30th anniversary. But i suspect the big thing will be my first plane ride in 5 years coming in December. The last one was a nightmare

I want to run!!!! I don't know if my knees will ever be able to do it though even with the excess weight gone.
I love running now too... even at 59 with arthritis. Never even considered it. Jeff Galloway app is a run/walk app where you can set your own pace.
I can't remember the "first" thing, but in the 5.5 months since surgery,some milestones are:
Remember, no matter where you go.......there you are.
