Great job. I’m a little over three years out and have lost 190 lbs. I have not had the skin removal surgery and I may not need it. How much actual weight did you lose from the skin removal surgery? Im still debating the surgery.

7.72lbs of skin was removed. Oddly enough, I'm only like 3lbs down from my pre-surgery weight, likely due to the swelling that takes 6-8 weeks to fully subside from this kind of surgery. I thought it was funny that the day before surgery to the day after surgery, I was UP almost 11lbs despite having 7.72lbs removed lol. The swelling is real, but I go more by what I see in the mirror vs. what I see on the scale now days.

Not a full member of the 400 club but I have been knocking at the door last couple of years. I wish I would have found this forum sooner; I would have been more confident in 2019 and had WLS instead of losing weight at a weight loss boot camp only to see the weight return with a vengeance. Reading the successes of men who have a longer weight loss journey then I do is very inspirational and provides valuable insight on what to expect once I get “sleeved” this coming April. Congratulations to everyone who has made significant progress, have lost weight and most important… have kept it off!
