Complete surprise!

Today's going to be a good day :)  I have been having a hard time finding clothes that fit.  The clothes I have been wearing are falling off of me, but I still can't fit into a lower size...or so I thought!  I have these capris that I have never really worn because they have been too small.  I tried them on last week and they were nowhere near fitting me yet.  I just tried them on again and they fit!  Amazing!  In just a short week.  I doubt I will be taking them off any time soon, lol!  I am going to find all my size 20's (because I have a whole range of clothing in my closet, from 24 down to 16) and try them on.  I didn't think they were going to fit for a while, but maybe I was wrong.  And, when I stepped on the scale this morning, 40 lbs lost!!
This includes the 20 lbs. lost during the two week pre-op diet which I started one month ago today.  So in one month...40 lbs. lost.  WOW!!  I am thrilled.

I also finally figured out one way to choke down some protein.  This morning I poured my RTD protein drink in a glass with some decaf coffee (cold) and some sf Torani Vanilla syrup and some ice.  It isn't half bad.  I doubt I can drink it all, but at least it doesn't make me gag.

That is awesome Sandy! 40 lbs in a month! I can't wait to see how being sleeved effects me with my weight loss as I really only have 15 lbs to goal. It will be interesting. I am secretly hoping that I will be able to lose more than 15, maybe 20 or so and have a little cushion. Hey, a girl can hope, right?

YAY! That is great about the pants! I was exactly like you, sizes 16-24 in my closet. Now I have mostly 16's (still wearing because I have a lot of them) and a couple of brand new 14's. Another 20 or 25lbs and I'm going to need a whole new wardrobe! Woo hoo!

Congrats on -40!!!
