So I think I'm doing great so far! 10 weeks out today down 50/52lbs (gotta love those 2 fluctuating pounds)! I know I'm early out where I should even think about this but my skin isn't coming back as I drop the weight... my arms and chest is like my biggest ughhh feeling as I look in the mirror? Any exercise recommendations that could plump up the chest muscles?

I love Body Pump Class at 24 Hour Fitness. It's low-mid weight-high rep weight lifting. If you can't join a class like that I'd say to focus on mid weight (7.5-15 lbs on each side) high repetition strength training. I think in each muscle group we do anywhere from 50-150 reps during a class. It's helped me tone quite a bit but I know everyone is different! You're doing great and best wishes to you as you continue your journey ❤

Thank you! I will look into some sort of class like that! Typically I just do like tricep biceps shoulders. Then back and chest then booty and legs and abs I haven't mastered yet but I plank and stuff at home cause I'm not fully comfortable doing all exercises in public but between those and cardio daily in seeing tons of changes and stuff! Just the cost of skin removed and maybe some sort of boob work is expensive! So thank you once again I will keep up what I'm doing and research that type of class!

That's great congrats! My surgery was two days after yours and I've only lost 35 lbs. yes I know 35 is still good but I see that so many people have lost more. If you don't mind me asking, can you share what you topically eat, hoe many calories, carbs and Protein you eat daily and what your start weight was? Thank you in advance

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
