  1. Shoe size

    Hello friends!!

    Today it's time to talk about a serious topic:shoes!!

    When being big for so long, most of the time I didn't see the point of buying more "giant tent style" clothing...and instead I would enjoy to get nice shoes, at least I thought that if I was going to lose that extra weight one day, at least I would still be able to wear my fav shoes....WRONG!!

    So far, ten months out, +90 pounds down since my first consult (110 from my highest ...
  2. Body dysmorphia....it's getting better!

    I'm 9 months out, lost around 90 pounds since my first consult...for the last few months I couldn't figure out what was my size or if I would be able to fit in between those two tables at the restaurant. Losing so much and so quickly kind of made me lose my internal compass.

    I spent most of October in Indonesia (Bali). They have the best spas and I did a lot of massages...(it's really cheap). Mostly lymphatic drainage. The result has been amazing! It's the best way to reconnect mind ...
  3. Abdominoplasty: 2nd appointment/2nd surgeon

    Today I met a second surgeon, in a private hospital were we go for consults in English (I had my sleeve in a public hospital where everything is mainly in Chinese). They had a window for a consult today, it was earlier than I thought but great to have a second opinion quickly.
    The consult was quiet long, one hour. Long story short, because in Asia there's not many obese, the surgeon usually do abdominoplasties without lipo (???). And it's rare for him to repair the muscles. He actually ...
  4. Early 9 months post-op...and meeting a plastic surgeon.

    I had a busy Saturday. Most of my morning was spent at the hospital to meet my bariatric surgeon and the team. My post-op is three weeks early because I will be overseas on the due date, and since I will be traveling most of October, the surgeon wanted to see me before I left. Besides the crazy sugar craving I had last week, my weight loss is much slower the past two months but my doc was happy with my results and said I'm doing better than many of his younger patients, I'm in the higher percentage ...
  5. Finally shopping....at home!

    Hello my friends!

    I've been living in Asia for two years, I was never able to find my size in a store since we moved here (came back with suitcases full of smaller sizes from US and France this year to have something to wear post-op)...but on Sunday, for the first time, I bought one dress and one lounge pants at Uniqlo (a Japanese department store) it was on sale and I was thinking, it will fit really soon...it actually fits right now!! I am just so surprised! it's a XL but that's ...
