25 goals I accomplished after gastric bypass

Everyone has goals in mind before their gastric bypass surgery; what big and little things they would like to accomplish and things they would like to be able to do.  I had a few, but have realized over the years that I have had more little, and big, wonderful changes in my life then I ever thought I would.  Here are 25 of the many I notice day in and day out of my new life! 

  1. Not getting out of breath going up and down the stairs.
  2. Eliminated most of my pre-surgery meds.
  3. No longer pre-diabetic. 
  4. Can get up and down off the floor with ease to play with my kids.
  5. Drastic reduction in my cholesterol and triglyceride numbers. 
  6. Feel confident in a bathing suit again.
  7. Fit comfortably on rides at amusement parks.
  8. Satisfied with normal food portions.
  9. No rude looks anymore when I’m eating.
  10. Can swing with my kids at the playground.
  11. Fit in a booth at a restaurant with plenty of room to spare!
  12. Fit comfortably in the back seat of a car.
  13. Not embarassed to have my picture taken!
  14. I don’t worry anymore people are making fun of my size.
  15. I will never have to shop in the plus section again!
  16. My second pregnancy was easier than my first without all that extra weight.  
  17. Not hungry all the time anymore.
  18. I sleep much better.
  19. I don’t worry I’m the “fat” mom and my kids will be embarrassed by that. 
  20. Wear cute, sexy dresses to special events.
  21. Dance at weddings.
  22. Cross my legs!
  23. Not have my thighs rub together when I walk.
  24. Am much smaller than my husband.
  25. Am no longer the “fat chick”.


Hello, I'm Kate, and I'm a 10 year gastric bypass post-op. I started this blog, as well as my nutritional website, to help other bariatric surgery post-op's on their journey as well as pre-op's with their decision if bariatric surgery is right for them or not.
