Like GreenTea stated its best to read the boards. Everybody is different! You dont want limited answers in your threads because that will end up swaying your perception of the surgery. There are things that can happen to everybody and some things happen to some and not others.. so its best to get as much knowledge as you can so you can be prepared and informed.

And not every successful posts much, usually more skewed towards complaints, the happy people are off living the Life of Riley and doing well. But a lot more happy posters since I started over a year ago, and although some facets of mine have not been perfect, I don't regret my surgery, wish I could have done it at a younger age, but I would never want to go back to the Old Frustr8, she was a sick unhappy lady with a lot of pain and sorrow. That was over a hundred pounds ago, and still have 80 or so to go where my goal is. I don't know how low I can go, but at 5ft8in anything below 200 would be a major blessing, I might never make it down to 175 at my age. And that will still be okay.

Excess skin.. depends on size, age, genetics, etc. I’m 34 and 6 months out, started at 339 at my first consultation a year ago and now am down to 226. Yes I have loose skin. Yes it’ll get worse. Still doesn’t outweigh the positives... and if you think about it, I always had that skin, it’s just not full of anything anymore.

Yes, I’ve been shedding hair like woah the last month and a half. Luckily I started with pretty thick hair. I’ve been told it’ll come back after a year.

Do I miss food? Sometimes I miss that I can’t enjoy more of something if it tastes good. I also find myself using a lot more spice in my foods and gravitating towards stronger flavors. If I’m only getting half a cup of something, I want to pack as much flavor in it as possible. Bring on the jalepenos!

No regrets. Zilch.
