Ok, so I have had some first! A few WOW! moments as we call them in the WLS world. One for me is the ability to wear high heels without falling over. Actually, the ability to wear high heels and even stand up! LOL. When I was at my heaviest and even at some weights well below this, wearing heels was just a dream. But not anymore! I had the chunky heels I bought years ago in Belfast that just sat in my closet. I have been wearing those for months but now I can even buy cute little summer sandal heels.
The other WOW! moment was buying my first pair of size 8 pants (well actually gaucho capris). Happy as a clam at a size 10, I was astonished when I took something back to exchange it and found I needed a size 8!!!!!!! Huh???? No way! But I did. Now bear in mind, several of my shirts are size smalls and I have been ‘getting into’ size 8’s’ for a while but with the loose skin and the fact I cannot stand anything the least bit tight, I opted for the 10’s which was fine for me. Considering when I went into surgery I always stated I would be thrilled to be a 14 again (I was size 26-28 when I went on the table).
So, I present to you pics of me in my heels (black gaucho capris, size medium from Target and cute black and white blouse from one of my new favorite stores SUPER DISCOUNT with really cute clothes, ROSS, size medium). The next is my size 8 dark denim gauchos with my coral shirt, size medium from Old Navy.
