Hey everyone, After losing 286 lbs. I am getting ready for my first skin removal surgery in 43 days. With the busy holiday season I know the time will fly by. I still can’t believe I am at this place in under two years. SW 487. CW 201

Congrats on making it through your first round of plastic surgery!

Are you at goal weight and in maintenance at 201 lbs? When was your DS surgery? And what other plastic surgeries are you considering/planning?

Congrats on your weight loss!! For your thigh lift, did you get the incision to your knees or did you get the one in your groin area? I’ve been on 2 consults and one guy doesn’t want to do it-isn’t comfortable and the other one hasn’t done many [emoji79] I’m going for another consult next week. Hope you’re doing well! Where do you live? Did you love your surgeon? Would you do it again?

Thank you! My thigh incision is from my knee all the way up through my groin. I am glad you are consulting with several surgeons. They need to know exactly what they are doing. Especially with the legs. And they need to be specialized in post weight loss surgery. Apparently the skin is different with patients who were obese and those surgeons know how to beat handle and get the best results. I love my surgeon. They have been fully transparent and very open with information and they did a great job. I live in Houston. Yes, I would do it again.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
