Congrats !! That really is a big deal. Must be a great feeling!
Bathroom NSVs are the best! I remember being able to take a bath for the first time in over 24 years or more. At that time, getting in would have been a struggle- that is if I could fit into one at all. Getting out? Impossible.
Enjoy the feeling; it's real!

When I was bigger I needed and wanted are towels, the xl bath sheets. . Now - I really don't Iike them, but prefer smaller, thinner towels. Interesting how things change.

Great NSV!!! I remember at the gym when I had to tie two towels around me together, or had to bring my own XXXL one! I still remember seeing how some guys in sauna who I thought was way bigger than I, could use only one towel, and I attributed it to me just having a bigger butt but not stomach, or being bigger overall. But I was, wow, how I was fooling myself! Amazing how our eyes can lie to us, even when we look in the mirror?? Now as i look back at the pics-my eyes really tell me the story!!!! Even when I watch 600 lb life and see the guys 700+ lbs, I realize that I was 1/2 that size which still is very, very large!!!
