    I’ve been on a plane since I lost weight. But no seat belt extender needed makes me so happy B3EE62EB-003D-4548-9C24-767172099BB0.jpeg

    Thanks! I'm still in shock that the DS worked and I got so small. It's a mircle. I love the fact I just naturally cross myt legs now. Love these jeans and they are a 26 inch waist.

    It's not weight but THESE NSV's that make the DS so wonderful.

    I would KILL for a 26 inch waist. Even at my smallest, in best shape preop back in my late 20's with almost NO body fat, I still had a waist of 29 inches. My hips were 31. MOST females have 10 to 12 inches between those two measurements.

    It's the little things, isn't it, just wanting to be comfortable and live a normal life. You've done great and I'm very happy for you.

    As an aside, cute embroidered jeans were a big NSV for me too!

    Thanks

    Thanks! So, jeans are a major NSV for me. I wore sizeless yoga pants for years. I love jeans and I kind of went jeans crazy. The good news is I got ever pair on sale and don't spend that much on jeans. Serious sale shopper here.

    I didn't even know embroidered jeans were a thing! I'm going to have to check them out. Any brands you'd recommend?

    I went blazer crazy during the sales. They were usually $300+ and I got three for $100 each. Even managed to get some matching trousers so I have some nice lightweight linen business suits for when I have to look especially sharp.

    Oh, and I discovered WEARING BELTS!

    I remember when you first had your surgery and no belts fit for long cause you were between holes.
