32 lbs down and clothes!
Sep 01, 2009
I'm down officially 32 lbs. I now weigh less than I did over 10 years ago. 32 doesn't sound like a big number, but I would never have been able to reach on my own without my RNY. It's pretty amazing how this whole process is working for me. My face seems a little thinner, my thighs do, especially my chest size, LOL! I need to purchase some bras, that's for sure. My tatas are not fitting well into my bras anymore.
I also noticed that I'm falling out of my clothes. I have a closet full of clothes that are too big for me now. They still fit, but they are so loose on me, especially in the thighs and butt area. I actually have these pair of capri's that I've had for a few years and I tried them on today and they are so loose, pretty much unwearable. I remember right after my mom had the surgery (4 years ago) and having her try these capri's on and they were loose on her too, it's pretty funny how this is all working out. I think I'm going to have to invest in some wrap dresses or skirts for a while. I definitely need some new tops as well. I'm gonna scope out the Thrift Stores near me to see if I can find anything good and check out Ross and TJ Maxx. It's just soo damn hot right now, that most of the stores have fall clothes out right now and it's harder to find anything that cool enough to wear. And I also don't want to spend tons of money on clothes that won't be fitting me in a month!
I'm going to try out some new shakes that I've seen posted by some of the awesome OH posters. I'm getting really excited about trying new foods and making healthy stuff for my family. I'll be on the pureed stage in about a week and half and I'm really looking forward to that. So far, the full liquids that I have had, have been good to my pouch. Absolutely no issues! I've also tried a little bit of an egg omelette and garlic mashed potatoes this weekend and my pouch was happy. Ooh, thank you Egg! I've been worried about eggs because I really love them so much.
