  5. Hello all, I've been MIA for a while. I'm 18 months post op and I'm pretty freaking happy lol. I now have a new career which takes up most of my days but I enjoy it very much. I have 2 gym memberships now and I'm really working on toning my body. I'm still not under 200 just yet, but I am extremely close. I'm 6lbs away and it's taking forever! I hope you all are well Take care
  6. Hey everyone! I know it's been ages since an update lol but I've been super busy. Recently I started my first "career" job since I graduated with my Bachelors and its all so new to me. I haven't been losing pounds, but I've been losing inches. I was discouraged until I tried on clothes I bought 3 months ago were falling off of me. My bra size was a DDD 3 months ago- I'm now just a D. I now can fit mediums- Larges and XL's are too big. The lose skin is starting to bother me alot now. I'm one of those people who has to use hand gestures no matter what and so watching my arms flop around like crazy is really uncomfortable and now my tummy does the exact same thing- weird thing is, I ACTUALLY have a nice shape under all the lose skin. I hope you guys/girls are doing good!
  7. Today I'm officially one year and 5 days post op. I've so far lost 98lbs. I'm so close to that 100lb lost it's crazy. The scale has slowed down alot but my body is changing soooo much. I'm doing about 1 hour of cardio a day and 30-45 minutes of strength training 3 to 4 times a week. I hadn't noticed how much my body had changed until I saw my surgeon today and he asked about my measurements. In the last 6 weeks my bust size went from a 38 to a 36 (I started at a 48I), and I went from a 14/16 to a 10/12. My shirt size was a 3X and now I'm in a large which is getting pretty loose. This was the best decision I could've ever made for myself. I hope that you all are doing great! Keep up with the weight loss yall! Here are some pics of me (before and after)

    70 Lost

    That's so great! Congrats!
  9. I'm finding it hard to exercise as much as I use to! I also find it hard to eat my veggies as much. I'm a year and a month out- is anyone else having this issue? I started a new BC pill for my ovarian cysts and since then my body has changed so much- I feel bloated all the time. It's a mess!

    I Cant Do This

    My surgeon had me do the slim fast diet - 5 shakes a day, one meal and at least 64 oz of water a day. I lost 13lbs during the 2 week pre op diet. I still have my diet info if you would like to give it a try.
  11. Thank you all for your kind words
  12. I totally have skin issues- My arms are soooo flappy lol. I've tried everything, skin tightening creams, work outs, etc... I really don't know what to suggest lol, but if anyone has suggestions I'm listening lol!
