EJustice, I was never denied by insurance but it did take me a year to get approval. Losing 100 pounds on your own is pretty incredible! What an accomplishment. I lost 112 lbs after our first child was born and then put it all back on and then some after our second child was born. It was a combination of the stress of two infants (they are 16 months apart), lack of sleep and eating junk food that led to my wife and I both packing on the pounds.

The one thing the surgery does for you that you can’t do on your own is it limits your ability to sabotage yourself. Even if you wanted to eat junk you can’t eat a lot of it after the surgery. Your stomach won’t let you. Beyond that, if you can keep losing without the surgery I’d do that.

Sallie Lindsey — I’ve had zero issues with loose skin so far. I’ve covered that pretty extensively in this thread so I won’t rehash it all. These are the things I do to try to prevent it but I have no idea what, if any of it works. I could have zero loose skin and do none of this for all I know.

1. I workout.
2. I drink 90+ ounces of Water a day to stay hydrated.
3. After showers I rubs skin so soft lotion all over my body.

It could be all genetic or gender or age. I do not know.
