I had Vertical Sleeve Gastric Surgery in October 2012, and this is my journey to push the fat girl aside and start living life without fear of lawn chairs,
the middle seat, clothing shops and high heels. Among other things.

NSV

It's been a long long weekend for us. We've been cleaning scrubbing and slaving away on the garage apt. It's a job for sure! Especially since it has no a/c and its hot as hades here!! 

Positive, I've been getting in a great workout!! :)

Today I finally broken out the packed clothes to hang and sort in the new closet. Since it was all out on the bed, I went through my "almost there" pile of 16's pants and l and xl tops. All the pants pulled up, but no buttoning up (Ug, being thick waisted sucks) the legs fit great, but such is life! A couple if the smaller tops that were too tight in the arms are loosening up. Progress is being slowly carved off my body. 

I did pull out a fleece hoody that I bought over two, maybe closer to three years ago as a goal shirt. It's an xl n*ke running fleece, thumb hooks, split hood so your pony tail can peek through, and nice high neck zip. I love it! It's 98 degrees today, but I'm going to love wearing this hoody in the coming winter (such as it is in Texas - but it does get chilly here!)

and......... it finally fits, even in the arms, which is where it had been holding up. :)

  3. Hi Tamzin! Oh, I love that sweatshirt with the thumb hooks and split hood--so cool! But even MORE cool that you can wear it now! Yay for you! All of the Nike and other sports clothes look better with fit people in them. (And, indeed, I had to lose weight to even fit into many of the sportiest brands!) I love this NSV!!! :D
