Non-Scale Victory Posts from October of 2017
Over the past couple of months, patients have still been regularly posting about a non-scale victory that they personally achieved since undergoing bariatric surgery in Tijuana. When pushing toward a goal weight, it is important to enjoy the non-weight related successes as they bring a new sense of excitement into your life!

NEVER in a MILLION years did I think I would ever be on stage for a bodybuilding competition. I have been training my butt off for over two years (surgery on 7-11-15) to scratch this off of my bucket list. Thank you MBC for giving me my life back!

Today came from my son “mommy, my arms go all the way around you.” To be healthier for my kids was my # 2 reason for having this surgery. Feels good to be on the right path!

Took a Zumba class today. Danced the whole hour. I have no Rhythm and I looked the fool, but I danced. Calories burned! Came home hungry. I plan to be sore tomorrow but I’m going back on Wednesday!

I bought my first pair of jeans since surgery and they were a size 9, I started in a 20. I couldn’t believe they fit when I tried them on!

Because this was the “easy way out,” I was able to lose my weight, train many hours a week, and running miles a day. This new Life is truly a journey and I can’t wait to see where I go next.
I FINALLY HAVE ABS!

I had to tighten up my shoes and I can tie my own shoes without any pain and I was actually able to sit in a seat in the car with a cut between my legs.

These Boots Were Purchased Last Year, I Had To Get Wide, So I Could Fit My Calves… When Zipping Before, They Were Still Pretty Snug… Now 47 1/2 Lbs Down – Boot Gap!

I felt confident enough to wear something a bit sexy for a Rocky Horror Show event.

I’ve started putting together an “After Weight Loss Bucket List”. This includes things like buying a kayak, going to a theme park, taking a hot air balloon ride! Does/did anyone else have this kind of list?

I haven’t fit into this dress in at least 12 years. In Vegas tonight, going out for a nice dinner. My hubs saw me in it and said I looked sexy. I’ll post a pic in it when I’m ready.

Sleeved 8/29. Could not buckle the seatbelt on the plane for the trip. 10/15, flew to Vegas for Work and was able to buckle with an inch or so to spare! Yahoo!

So this is a strange side effect but I’m not even mad. I used to get motion sickness being the passenger in a car and on airplanes. It’s gone! I can even read in the car now. I would puke before! Small victory!
Paige: Posted October 21st, 2017
Something amazing happened today for the first time in years I was able to ride a carnival ride with my daughter and my ass fit and the clamps closed around me. I can’t explain the feelings that felt being able to do something so simple yet so wonderful. I am nowhere near my goal but this was awesome for today. I am so grateful for this choice and MBC for making it happen!

Never in a million years would I have ever imagined that I would climb 960 ft I’m so terrified of heights but I did it! I didn’t expect to have to climb the Dunn’s, River Falls. I just thought I was going sightseeing lol It was an amazing experience 🇯🇲 I accomplished something and it didn’t accomplish me 60lbs lighter and it is a blessing! I didn’t get tired. I did it! Life is awesome Jamaica is beautiful!
Lenora: Posted October 20th, 2017

My husband and I went shopping last night, I need a black leatherish jacket. I grabbed a large one, he laughed and handed me a medium! I thought there was no way, but out I walked with a medium coat I’ve been in a stall for over a month, down 70 pounds, but my inches lost is 57. I thank god every day that I made this life-changing decision.
Mindy: Posted October 25th, 2017
I went to San Diego zoo from opening to close, and was walking for at least 7 1/2 of the 9 hours we were there (took a break for lunch), and at no point did I feel so tired I wanted to stop. I had energy all day!
Amy: Posted October 27th, 2017
New shirts – size SMALL! Never in my life did I think that would happen. The scale has moved so slow (12 pounds) in the past three months but my body is still changing. Losing inches is way better than the number on the scale! Size 16 to a 6.
HT: 5 ft. 7 in.
We Are So Proud!
It is amazing to see all of these wonderful posts as our patients celebrate their success.
