    OTR- looking great, keep it up! I am going in on October 8 for my sleeve and I have concerns about maintaining muscle mass. Id like to ask 2 questions : first, how long did you wait until starting to lift weights? Second, did your skin bounce back well or do you have some hanging?
    I'm about the same size (frame at least) that you are in the before pic and I'd like to know what I can expect.
    Thanks in advance for any advice or tips.

    My goal is to be healthy and still maintain some muscle mass

    I still have a way to go, but I don't think I'm doing too badly considering I'm still recovering from knee surgery, thus my exercise is limited.

    Hope this helps someone.
    For those who don't know, I started at almost 300lbs. And in almost no notable muscle.

    Firstly let me say, you look great.
    I didn't read the entire thread, so forgive me if this has already been suggested, but, are you eating enough?
    If you are still you are still trying to lose weight by restricting caloric intake & exercise, then you are going to call me crazy.
    At this point in the game , your body has adapted to surviving on low calories. You need to calculate your base metabolic rate & add your caloric burn to it. Then bring your caloric intake up to at least that number for about a month. This will convince your body that it is being well nourished & it will quit holding tightly to fat stores. Then you can go back yo the pouch test or any other calorie restrictive diet you choose. You'll notice that then & only then will your body release the fat stores. If you don't reach your goal in 2-3 weeks bring your calories back up and repeat the cycle.

    You have no idea how lucky you are to have not gone the debt route. IMO debt free is tge only way to live. I did it for years, then I tried the debt thing, NEVER AGAIN. I even advocate the 100% down program on houses.
