Here I am
Jul 06, 2009So here I am - 5 weeks out today. It seems like it took so long for the surgery to get here, and now time is flying right by after the fact. I'm still losing a little slower than I would like, but I'm losing so that's good. I'm down about 13 lbs. since the day of surgery. I am starting to see some differences in my body and have my before pics and one month pics to post. So my clothes have been driving me crazy! I got rid of almost all my bigger clothes so I don't have much to wear and my shorts are getting too big. So I went to Lane Bryant and just didn't want to spend $30 on shorts I'd only wear for a month or so. I ended up going to Wal-Mart and picked up a pair of 16s and 14s just in case. I put on the 16s and they were quite big, I figured the 14s would be too tight... But they were actually comfortable/loose! I didn't push it and try 12s because I probably would have fainted on the spot if they fit...lol. So I bought the 14s and a size L shirt - size L - not 2X, 1X, XL. I was amazed. I do think that they've changed the sizes in the last 10 to 20 years when I was last in a 14 though. Now I'm at about 177 according to my scale at home and I used to be around 150/160ish for a 14 back in the day. I think I'll go to Kohl's later and try on some clothes to see if it was a fluke or not!
Other than that I've been incredibly moody. Yesterday I just kept crying over everything and nothing, it was terrible. Other days I've just been a roaring bitch. It's no fun for my family and friends, that's for sure. I hope to get that under control soon before they lock me away and throw away the key.
Hope everyone is doing well!
