  1. I’m at the point now where I’m looking at skin removal. I started at 285 I’m down to 160 and have a lot of extra skin on my stomach. It’s been a confidence low point for me, especially being a single woman. I feel like people don’t know what they are getting into with me and definitely don’t feel comfortable with the extra skin. Anyone else have skin surgery? What can I expect? What’s the cost like?
  2. I am a season ticket holder for a local sports team. I used to be able to smuggle booze into any place I was going, but I find myself having to smuggle food in since the food at the venue is all fried or full of fat and sugar. Anyone else have to be creative with food smuggling? I welcome new ideas
  3. Walk as much as possible. It will help the gases from laparoscopic surgery absorb and make your back hurt less. My surgeon said to use a heating pad on your stomach for muscle pain. I’m 1 week post op today and it helped soooo much

    Low Key about Surgery

    With my surgery date quickly approaching, the people who do know are critics or super supportive. I live with my best friend. When it was an idea she was on board. Now that I have my date, it’s like she would rather talk about anything else. Because of the negative energy I get from her I have been trying to find good vibes from any place I can and cautiously branching out, as I don’t want my business out there. I found a woman at work who has been my Guardian angel! She had the surgery 12 years ago and couldn’t be more happy for me. I’m slowing building a support system.

    Post op wedding

    My worry was that most dress places want to measure you 10 months out, I have a feeling I will have to get something off the rack
  6. I know I’m jumping the gun but I meet with the surgeon in a week to (hopefully) get my surgery date since all my other testing has been completed. In the time since I have made the decision to better myself I had gotten engaged and am now planning a wedding. My hopeful surgery date would be January/February and my wedding is scheduled in April of the following year. I’m anxious about wedding dress shopping post weight loss. I know with continuing to drop weight it will be hard to be fitted. Anyone else have this issue?
