May 15, 2017 - I'm 9 months post-surgery this week. I started my journey in January 2016, and lost 90 pounds from January 16 - January 17. I have maintained steady weight since January, although I would like to lose another ten pounds. I dropped from size 22/24 to 14/16 and from 3/4XL to L and XL tops. I just got measured for a bra and I went from 44DDD to 38G. I went from shoe size 10 to 9. Wasn't expecting my FEET to get smaller - but everything has. I had super-thick hair and have lost a lot of hair. I had so much hair that people can't tell I've lost a bunch, but I can tell.  My biggest struggle has been getting used to my new size. I don't know how to shop in clothes stores for "regular" sizes - I've always gone to the Women's section.   The weirdest experience I've had thus far is that some people that don't know me very well don't recognize me. I'm coping quite well, these new problems are good ones to have!
