I haven't experienced any regain. Around "that time of the month" I oscillate about 3 lbs, but it always drops back off once shark week is over. I weigh daily and keep a very close eye on the scale - if I know I've been indulging more than usual, and I see the scale creep up a pound, I'm very careful to clean up my act and get a few extra runs in. It always drops back off within a few days.

The key to not regaining is constant vigilance, and making a healthy lifestyle :)

2 week post op , what kind of exercise did you start with and when to build up to where you are now?

Honestly I was freaking exhausted for about 3-4 months after surgery. Everyone reacts to surgery differently and I'd never dealt with anything that major - my body took a while to recover. I still lost almost 80 lbs in the first 4 months, even without major exercise.

Once I started feeling better, I started doing T25 at home - then a couch to 5k plan. I've been running and lifting ever since.

Choose something that works for you!

I am wondering what the trick is to avoid having to having excess skin removed

If you scroll back in the comments, I've already answered this question :) it's my most asked question, from everyone, everywhere.

There is a more detailed answer if you thumb back in the comment pages of this post, but the short answer is: there is no "trick." It's about luck, age, good genes, and general skin elasticity, with a bit of exercise thrown in for good measure. Depending on all those things, and your body composition, you'll either have lots of excess skin - or you won't.

Good luck!!
