The bath tub
What seems like a lifetime ago I used to enjoy taking a bath. Not just a bath. a HOT bath, with bubbles and candle light. I'd put quiet music on and all of my stress would melt away. I haven't taken that kind of a bath for a very long time. You see I could no longer fit comfortably in the bath tub. And it was mortifying for me to admit. BUT today I thought....hmmmmm....you're down 85 pounds surely it will be better.
AND IT WAS!!! I am so happy to get something as simple as a bubble bath back!
Congratulations - that sounds wonderful!
(OMG - I hadn't even thought of this. I think I'm going to make my way to LUSH in the next few days and treat myself to a nice bathbomb/melt bc I bet I now fit too!)

The thought of fitting into the tub again almost made me cry. I haven't been able to since I was a teenager. This surgery is going to change so much for me. I don't know how I am going to wait another 5 months for the insurance requirements...anyway...CONGRATS!
I was just thinking about this the other day! Now I will really need to try it. We have a whirlpool tub. Not one of those huge garden ones, but still oversized compared to a regular tub. It wasn't the fitting in it...it was the getting in and out of it. The sides are extra high and it was such an ordeal, especially getting out. I didn't have the arm strength to push myself up. I think I can do it now. This weekend....a long swirly soak!
