    Default NSV at the clothing store

    Happy Wednesday!

    I haven't bought new clothes since my surgery because I was trying to avoid the expense. Yesterday I decided enough was enough (I'm totally sick of baggy clothes and having to wear tank tops under stuff because it falls off) and I went shopping. Since my surgery I have dropped 4 pant sizes and 2 shirt sizes (and probably need to go down another size). I was so excited I couldn't stand it! My jeans are too big and all my casual shirts are huge.

    In my head I knew that dropping weight was going to mean I would drop sizes, but this was a dramatic difference and I almost wasn't prepared for it. I bought two pairs of work pants and will probably go back when I get paid for one more. The pants have the buttons on the side so I can make them a size smaller when they get too big. Holy cow it's exciting.

    Less than 2 months ago my life was so different I almost can't remember what it was like. The sleeve is definately the best thing I've ever done.

    Hi Kacie, here's what I'm eating today:

    Breakfast: Coffee & Unjury Chocolate Splender (almost as good as 'real' iced coffee with all the fat)
    Snack: Raspberry Chobani Bite greek yogurt (I LOVE these, they're 100 cals and 8-10g protein
    Lunch: 2 pieces of deli ham with light cream cheese
    Dinner: I have a chicken breast marinating in the fridge, I'll have half today and half tomorrow.
    Snack (I don't usually eat this snack because I go to bed near bedtime) sugar/fat free chocolate pudding made with 1% skim milk and a scoop of unjury unflavored.

    Now, this is what works for me. It looks like you're dropping a significant amount of weight - remember that everyone's different.

    You are doing wonderful!!! Isn't the Chobani Bite greek yogurt just a little bowl of love? I have only tried the coffee one & look forward to trying the others.
    Keep up the good work!

    Wow! That's truly inspirational! I was about to moan and groan about the way my body feels right now, but you just reminded me why I wanted to do this in the first place. Thanks! And also, thanks for the mention of unjury... hadn't heard of it.

    How does participating in the Lowe's customer satisfaction survey relate to the experiences or challenges faced by Gastric Sleeve members in clothing stores, and what benefits can individuals expect from such a survey?
