Finally- I feel like I am losing!!!

Recommended Posts

I am a crazy Christmas decorating fiend!!!! Last weekend when I was decorating my 6th (of 9) trees in our house.

I finally felt like I was losing!!! As I stood on the top of the step ladder, for the first time I was able to lean over without hitting tummy against the other decorated branches of fear of being to heavy for the ladder rating. I also never felt like I was out of balance or was going to fall. This was AMAZING!!!

It encouraged me to clean out my closet- I got 7 bags of clothes to go to Good will I got rid of sizes down through 20 and all 2x (except 1 favorite sweater- I can't give it up). SO I officially only have size 18 stuff.

The saddest part was I opened some boxes of clothes I put away (for after nursing- not accesible for baby) the last few months I was pregnant in 2003. I was looking foward to wearing them again- but alas I AM TO SMALL!!!!!!!!!!!! So out they went to

I did keep my stupid strech pants they are 2x (about 5 pairs) but I am trying to make them last till spring- I got a bunch of size 14/16 dresses last fall on sale (3$ and 5$ each) as well as capris and short sets. I can't wait for them to fit. I always feel I will be an xl or a big L because I am 5' 9" with ape arms (and lets not forget the bat wings from hell) but I am so excited for the first time since surgery)

Congratulations!!! I could feel your excitment just reading your message. My surgery is scheduled for Dec. 21st. It helps to read posts like yours to confirm my decision is a good one. I can't wait to start getting rid of all the big clothes. Looking forward to wearing real summer type clothing next year.

Wish you all the best and continued success.

Congratualtions to you..what a great NSV ( non scale victory)

Hey maybe next time you get rid of clothes to the goodwill..post it here or on other boards ..there are always fellow bandsters looking for used clothes , that is what I do when I am getting rid of clothes, I have never had a problem finding anyone who wants them.. Since none of us want to spend lots of money on clothing as we are still losing its a great way to help someone out..Just a thought!

You are doing fantastic..Keep it up!
