When my stomach no longer HIT the steering wheel in my car!.
When I could bend over and rest my elbows on my knees...
When my husband hugged me and was able to wrap his arms all the way around me and his fingers touched!..
When my husband got that little extra 'sparkle' in his eye and wouldn't leave me alone...
Probably the first time I had to go to a social occasion that I normally would have lied to avoid, and realized that I wasn't even the fattest person there. It was the first time that I didn't have the feeling that people were staring at me...
Aww I love these! I hope more people keep posting! *warm fuzzies everywhere*..
One morning, I was taking a shower, and I looked down and saw my toes!!..
Over the summer I took my son to movies in the park. He fell asleep during the movie. Afterwards, I scooped him up, along with our beach chairs and blanket, walked across the park and headed to the car..
As I was driving home it hit me....a few months before then I would have been huffing and puffing just walking all the way across the park WITHOUT carrying anything. I smiled the whole drive home!!!..
When the weather got cold, I pulled out some sweats from last year - pulled them on, tied the drawstring and.....
They fell down!..
When the deep indentation into my gut at the end of my work day disappeared from wearing pants that were too tight around the waist! Even worse, I SPLIT the back seam of my favourite plaid leggings (then I hid them in my closet and was humiliated every time I saw them)..when I reached goal, I had the back seam repaired and now those awesome leggings are too big! =-)..
When my ankles weren't swollen anymore! But until today, I didn't really "see" it. I know my clothes are really baggy, and I know I've lost 30 lbs, but I didn't see it. I just made a friend take a pic of me, and I did a side by side comparison. Ok, NOW I see it, and what a great way to boost my spirits!!!..
When I looked down at my computer chair and could actually SEE both sides of the seat beneath me! WAAAA HOOOOO!..
Dude I was totally going to say that, I just noticed that today!..
I'm only nine days in, but this morning I put on a pair of work pants and they fit so much better than they did 10 days ago!..
When I flew to Europe and didn't need a seat belt extension. I got teary...
When I sat in a conference room chair at work and my butt didn't spill over the sides!..
I gotta echo the steering wheel comment. It feels so good to get behind the wheel of my car without my stomach mushing up against the steering wheel!..
When I crawled under the table to plug something into the electrical outlet and realized there was lots of room down here! I felt like a kid in a homemade fort!! LOL..
I have had so many ah ha moments, but 2 of my favorites were-trading in my bariatric office chair for a regular chair, and going to a restaurant and not only fitting in a booth, but having a little "tummy to table" room to spare!..
