    Hi everyone!

    I am 51, 5'8" and while the weight loss is awesome, I most proud of what I have accomplished in my general fitness (thanks to great fitness training with an emphasis on strength training!)

    Kat410 got a reaction from BlueCrush in Is it possible to build muscle after the sleeve? I'm about to find out.   
    Loving this thread.

    I definately gained muscle on a pretty intense calorie deficit - it's without question possible. However, I am not sure how much I could have gained or can gain.
    I am still (somewhat unexpectedly) losing weight and after the holidays am going to shift my nutrition focus.
    I am also focusing alot on other aspects of fitness which decline with age (its not just lean muscle!) but in my case balance.
    I cannot do a single leg dumbell deadlift without toppling over. I just need to retrain that in myself and I know it will come with time but it's been one of the more frustrating aspects of my fitness journey. However, I consider it one of the most critical given this morning I almost took a tumble down the subway stairs due to an off-balance misstep.
    I also like to create games - my next objective is to be able to do a full ab wheel roll out (e.g., arms full out, body just hovering over the floor). Been practicing and ugggh my abs hurt like a beast!

    I just had an NSV that I didn’t think I’d ever have. Apparently I don’t have thigh chafing anymore. No cub rub. No more shorts under skirts and dresses.

    I have had that since puberty and was convinced half the problem was being over weight and half the problem was the way my thighs were built.

    But omg. My thighs don’t rub together anymore. It is kinda freaking me out!

    Kat410 got a reaction from sisternewt@yahoo.com in GALS who started their journey over 300 lb+<br /> +   
    My Highest weight was my pre-surgery weight of 335. I lost 19 lbs 10 days pre surgery and just celebrated my one year surgeriversary. I have lost 148 lbs and now wear size 10-12.

    At 280 I started training with a personal trainer and am now the fittest I have been since I was a teenager.

    Before surgery I had mentally prepared myself for the possibility I would be in the average range of 60 percent of excess body weight lost but as I got stronger and fitter my view changed and I realized r results were completely in my hands.

    While the speed of my weight loss surprised me ;(diabetic, 50 years old and went immediately into menopause after surgery), I am thankful for the boost but still have a lot of work to do.

    Keep up he hard work ladies! We can do this!

    The hunched over posture is also connected to working a desk job. My massage therapist said at the beginning that alot of the muscles in my upper back were hyperextended. All exercises that work your back side from shoulders down to ass will help with this. I also find that alot of my poor posture is connected to inflexibility in my hips and I have to routinely practice sitting straight when i am at work.
