Pre-surgery NSV:
14 mile bike ride today (technically, it was a 7 mile ride, lunch, then another 7 mile ride home)
Longest ride in last 2 years.

3.5 months into the 6 month pre-surgery program, continuing to try to use the time well and improve my health before the surgery.

I am wearing a pair of jeggings that did not fit when I bought them. Even a month ago could not. But today the went on.

Pre-surgery NSV
Insurance victory - insurance had denied part of the pre-surgery program. I filed a written protest, asking how they can require the pre-surgery program then not cover it. They decided to approve the $119 charge they had previously rejected.

9th, that's GREAT! I'm a cyclist, and I love being out there on the road, so I can see how this was a victory for you. It's fabulous therapy!

My NSV for the week was when I put my beautiful wedding ring back on my finger. It was always a snug fit, but my hands have been much less swollen since surgery. I'm not retaining much water at all, actually, and many of my rings are now too big. YAY!

One of the weirdest things I've noticed is how my older shoes are HUGE on my feet. I've had to toss out several pair of shoes...dress shoes, casual shoes, and athletic shoes. This is something I didn't anticipate, but I'm happy that I can see and feel these changes.

I'm more and more confident in my clothing purchases, too. I proudly bought a pair of size 8 capri jeans in a store I haven't visited since...since...well, before 2001! A long time ago! I don't really remember the last time I bought size 8, to be perfectly honest. I can remember buying a size 10 jeans in about 1990, but that's as small as I can remember. I'm not going back to a size 22...EVER!

Live each day like it was your last.

My first NSV (keep in mind I am still pre-surgery):
Road my bike for the first time this year.
The seat broke last summer and mechanical problems and riding gets more difficult every year, was thinking I might not bike again until next year (post-surgery). But I've been on the pre-surgery weight loss plan for 1.5 months now, have a little more energy, bought a new seat Saturday, nice day yesterday so I got the bike out and went for a ride.
The ride itself, only 5 miles, but a start, and on a beautiful day when I needed stress relief.
Small victory.

Congrats Garrie1.
35 was my about max - I did 35 miles a few times 5 or 6 years ago when I was trying to work my way back into health. Have gone downhill since. Am pre-surgery, at least 5 months away due to insurance. Seems like a long way off some days.
Thanks for your post - I find it motivating and a reminder of why I need to stay the course.

Not much padding on my bike saddle, Matka. I have yet to ride it since I started losing weight, and I'm sure adjustments will need to be made. Seriously, though, I could not ride without padded cycling shorts.

I'm about 35 days from my RNY surgery, and I've lost 29 lbs. I've LOVED reading everyone's NSVs, because I'm starting to really see and feel a difference.

Loved KATIEWOLFIE's comment about sitting with her legs crossed...I can comfortably do that now.

My clothes are really starting to hang unattractively...which is a love/hate thing. I have a great relationship with the girls at my local Lane Bryant...I know most of them by name...so I went in last week to tell them good-bye. They are all so nice, but I will not miss buying my clothes there. I haven't actually bought any new clothes yet...still on the initial losing streak...but I am SO excited to go buy a size 12 or 10.

And, YES! My shoes are all very roomy! It's SO weird! I actually kicked one of my shoes about 3 feet the other day, when I was playing a game with our children's group at church, and we had to shake our arms and legs. My shoe went flying, everyone laughed, and I was the hit of the day! HAHA!

And my rings and bracelets? YEAH! I am wearing a ring right now that I haven't worn for years. I still don't think my wedding ring will fit comfortably, but I haven't actually tried it. I've been wearing a celtic knot wedding band that I bought for my husband. He didn't like it, so I adopted it. It's now pretty loose on my finger, and I'll need to stop wearing it one of these days...don't want to lose it. emoticon

Two nights ago DH & I decided to go listen to open mic night. For the first time in many years, I wore an entire outfit that brought me to tears. There was not an XL, XXL, or XXXL anywhere on any of the size tags. I honestly could not believe it.

Just out of curiosity, I decided to take a couple of photos yesterday. Oct 29 I posted about DH buying me a pair of pants that was way to small. Yep, they fit now! These are the differences in my clothes now. Until I saw the difference in front of me like this, it was (and kind of still is) hard for me to believe that there was a major difference.



Big hugs!

Woohoo Katie!

I had a weird NSV on Christmas eve. We had a packed living room. My DIL (who is heavy) was sitting on the couch and my DH was on the other end, and they asked me to sit between them. I said 'no' because I'd NEVER have fit before- and I said that "I won't fit", and they said yes, you will. And I DID. I just don't see myself smaller yet.

I am sitting here with tears of joy in my eyes for you Di. That is so wonderful.

I hate shopping for clothes. As I walked through the "normal department", was looking at various items of clothes today with my hubby. I would just shake my head and put the item back on the rack. He paused for a moment and said "You know, you are going to enjoy shopping so much more here soon. It is going to be a lot easier for you to find something you like, too. Maybe I can get you to buy something that you can't hide in." Although he had very good and loving intentions with his statements, I still felt like hiding under a rock.

He actually made me buy an XL in a tank top instead of the 2x or 3x I usually buy to go under my loose weave or see through tops. He said, "When you feel ready to wear it, this will look really great on you." Again, all could do was shake my head. He made the mistake of buying a pair of medium sized jeggings (size 8-10) in a beautiful mauve color for me one day as a "surprise". Said he thought with the weight I had already lost, they looked like they would fit. I gave him a big hug and kiss and told him that I was still in an XXL (18-20 sucked in, 22 to breathe!) but I would keep them and use those as my "target" pants. He was very apologetic and said one of us had a skewed view of what I really looked like and he was sure it wasn't him. I sure love that man. He knows how to "cover his behind" very well when he needs to. emoticon


Big hugs!

woohoo! That's wonderful news!

I have a NSV today- I was able to wear a size 1x top to work today! (I was in 5x in August when I had surgery) I'm kind of blown away by all this- my head is having a hard time catching up.

As i walked into a store today in a previously snug skirt. It is now roomy enough to fall right off my hips and around my ankles. Which revealed my getting a little looser panties...didn't lose the panties but I need to go shopping lol

Way to go Myra! So happy for you! I am also 55, although I try to act like I am 20 something. I can't wait to wear some younger fashionable items that doesn't include an X or two or three on the size tags!

My goal: To go from triple X large to triple X sexy!

Big hugs!

Went shopping at Old Navy instead of the local tent shop! I typically hate shopping but my clothes are so big I finally had to do something about it. I haven't shopped any where other than OneStopPlus for so many years, I forgot what it's like to go in and try things on. Was in Old Navy a couple of weeks ago with my daughter while she was home for the weekened and she suggested that I try on a couple of items. I declined, sure that they wouldn't fit. Got out of court early yesterday and chose to go back and shop a little without the fight for the dressing room. The dresses I picked out FIT! In fact, there was a little extra room. Not enough to go down one more size, but room just the same. Ended up coming home with 4 outfits. I was actually having fun trying them on then sending pics to my daughter for approval. 55 and dressing like a 20 something. Can't wait to it again when I under grow my clothes again. Oh yeah, there were the Walmart undies too! emoticon emoticon

So sorry to hear about your medical condition AZTLAN777!

I will keep you in my prayers.

Thank you for your interest in my progress and for your words of encouragement.

I just had test done because I have cancer in my smaller intestines. I hope and pray that I do not need another surgery, but if I have to have it...it will be done. emoticon

Thank you AZTLAN777!

A lot depends on your insurance and how your doctor's office runs their office. emoticon

My insurance required me to have a history of trying to loose the weight and then also try to loose weight while being monitored by the nutritionist. I also had to get my psychologist to sign off and then the doctor's office takes an extra 30 days on top of the 90 days with the nutritionist just to cover everything.

When my insurance received the information packet from the doctor's office, I was approved for everything including the hospital and other necessary procedures that were needed prior to the surgery.

My insurance also covers the cosmetic/skin removal and other procedures (if medically necessary) once I loose the weight. So it is important to keep going to your doctor's after the surgery and report rashes, sores, hanging skin, etc., during the weight loss so that it will be easier for the insurance to approve the skin/cosmetic removal surgery as well.

I also plan to save as much as possible and keep my credit good in case I need to pay for procedures that are not covered by insurance. emoticon

You are inspiring & uplifting! I have been trying to get the sleeve for 3-4 yrs. This year, I finally got ins. approval for, nutritionist consult, behavior analyst, & endoscopy. I haven't heard anything yet about the next step. Can you tell me, does ins still have to give authorization to get the actual surgery? Currently developed some sort of lower GI issues with a lot of pain. So, not in a big hurry, hoping that by the end of this month, all diagnostics, will be clear of cancer. So, Skimbro, forgive me, for living the WLS journey, vacariously through you! I'm rooting for you, you are my pioneer!

Thanks AZTLAN777 emoticon

I have lost inches off my waist, hips, thighs, etc., and my BMI is down as well. emoticon

I have noticed that I need to purchase more undergarments because the others are too big for me. emoticon

I have been able to eat more of my protein instead of protein shakes and drinks, but it still feels funny/painful sometimes when I eat. emoticon

I got pulled over by a Park Ranger in Yosemite National Park for going 35mph in a 25mph zone......she took my license, then looked at me, and said, "this looks nothing like you." Wow! What a compliment! I had to explain that I had lost over 100 pounds. She congratulated me, let me off with a warning, and told me to go get a new picture taken at DMV.

I think the biggest success for me was the day that my doctor told me I no longer had to take the 4-5 insulin shots I took each day. I'm telling you I sat down and just cried my eyes out I was so happy. Another thing was being able to cross my legs, I just get so tickled when I can do that. I fell a while back and my sweet hubby was trying to help me up and I would tell him be careful I'm heavy, I don't want to hurt you. Before I knew it he had picked me up and had me in the house. I know I've lost all this weight but I still think of myself as big, does anybody else do that?

OMG! I wore a size 2 pair of white capris today to work -- size 2! and white to boot! And I was told I looked "super cute" by my daughter, and "sexy" by my hubby -- Thank you, thank you -- I will take the compliments and say "THANK YOU!"

Oh, don't you love that? The double-takes...priceless!

When I was teaching a fair number of Zumba classes, I would bring a before picture from time to time. Loved the "NO FREAKIN' WAY THAT WAS YOU!" reactions from my chicas :-)

This is a great message thread thanks for starting it! NSVs are really important to me right now because I have been at the same weight for eight weeks. My surgical team and personal trainer believe it relates to a rue shaping from dat to muscle....

NSV list during this time: size 16 WP pants are now 2 inches too big at the waist and saggy in the butt/legs. I am in a Misses size large and size 14 pants/skirts. This means no more plus size department for me.
I can do an hour long interval training workout. This includes running intervals.
Lots of compliments on my healthy look, glowing complexion, and positive energy.
Smaller shoe size (who knew?..)

Going from 3x tops to my first XL emoticon

Going from skin tight 24W jeans to misses size 18 emoticon

Walking around the racks at Big 5 without knocking stuff on the floor

Sitting in the movie theater seat with the arms down without realizing it until the end

Getting in my friend's jeep easily and able to buckle the seatbelt without gymnastics

Going from hardly making the 30 ft walk to the mail box and back to 60 min walking up and down hills around ball fields

Actually spontaneously running from the car to the house when I forgot my purse emoticon (surprised myself and two dd's waiting in the car!)

Gleefully closing my Lane Bryan credit account, 'cause I can shop in regular stores!!!!

I'm looking forward to being able to wear a swimsuit and/or shorts in public without feeling uncomfortable about it. I have a ways to go on that one.

And my next best thing was not having to use the seat belt extension in my car. (And also on air flights, not having to ask for one!)

Congratulations, keep on Sparking..................................

Haven't had surgery... yet. Still waiting on the date. But, my favorite (so far) NSV, is being able to get in and out of our car without having to lean the seat back. And, being able to drive without the steering wheel rubbing on my gut!

That's a memorable moment Christine!! And no more bumping elbows and shoulders with the guy next to ya!

My latest has been adding some jogging to my daily walk. With chronic back pain and sore knees, it was out of the question until a month ago. I started out slowly and have been picking up speed. NEVER did I think I was going to be able to run again. Now I know it's possible.

Greetings, Teammates!

I had a wonderful suggestion that I just HAD to act on right away...opening up a space for us to talk about those magical, memorable NSV's (Non-Scale Victories). They are just as much a part of the WLS journey as watching the numbers move downward at our weigh-ins, but somehow, they mean oh, so much more.

Take a moment and share YOUR favorite NSV's...and tell us about the NSV's you know may be just around the corner for you. Who did you tell? How did you celebrate?

I'll kick it off...at one point, I was doing a fair bit of traveling for business. It was a big embarassment for me to have to ask for a seat belt extender when flying. Oh, the precious moment, on a flight out West, that I realized that I didn't need it any more!!!!!!!!!!!! No, I didn't leap up and down whoo-hooing, but boy, I surely wanted to :-)

OK, your turn emoticon

Best, Christine
