I have noticed many changes not just my weight but my overall perspective of myself. I have always been a confident person but today that characteristic is stronger. I don’t randomly eat food I think about it as fuel for my body and I have learned to like the high octane food!! Like @donna25trinity said change is amazing so here is my before and after pics I do hope they change even more.

I kept some of my pants and shirts I wore to the office from when I was at my thinnest back in 2016 towards the end of my running peak. They are too big now! I'm in the same weight range as then, but about 2-4 inches thinner for waist size (estimate from pants size and fit). That was a pleasant surprise when I pulled them out searching for clothes that fit for the "return to office" mandate this year.

Hello everyone. We go to visit our son & his family every Thanksgiving (except last year, but I want to just skip that whole year), and will happily be going again this year. I'll probably have passes that week because me, my husband, and my son all love to cook, especially together. I'm the only one who has a 'weight' issue, so the calories are never counted. I will try and modify but will enjoy the week. Tonight we are having a Thanksgiving-type dinner with my daughter and her family. I figured I was going to pass but then decided to keep it all healthy since I was in control. I am not making gravy, or mashed potatoes, or my yummy Parker House Rolls. Instead, I am reducing the turkey juices, having a veggie and 2 salads, made a 10 Grain Tyrolean bread, and for dessert, I made angel food cake cupcakes. I'll serve a Natilla custard and lemon curd on the side. I've counted 1 cupcake (I put the recipe in my MFP so I can have it other days), and 1 tablespoon of curd. I'll skip the custard. I've closely watched breakfast and lunch leaving me good to go tonight.
Exercise: 1 hr on the treadmill (and a lot of walking while baking & cooking)
Calories: just under

Your surgery prep sounds very smart @WhatMeRunning .. best wishes for a smooth day on Monday.
Physically, I am in the smallest clothes I've been in for a long while. Most clothes are dropping off me or tight things fit well now. My face looks less puffy, my rings fit better, and I am noticing the muscle definition in my arms and legs.
I have definitely shrunk some cup sizes and need new bras...
Much slimmer in the waist area but this is the spot that is the last to make big progress on me.

I'll pre-log it since this is planned...
❌ - Exercise
❌ - Under on calories
✅ - Tracked
If tracking goes wrong I will update later.
My calories are going to be a little over maintenance for the next week, except maybe Monday, the day of surgery, due to possibly not getting to eat much at all that day. So starting that now to aid healing and have a little extra going in just ahead of that day.
Exercise will be on hold for a few days afterwards, and only on hold today and tomorrow since it's the first 48 hours when muscle tissue is heavily repairing (and you feel DOMS). The idea being to have my body direct the most healing energy to the post-op repairs.
I'm quite comfortable with this approach and don't mind chalking them up as pass days at all.
