Now past the 4 week mark - I really notice a difference! Feeling mostly "back to normal" and will continue to wear the compression garments another 4 weeks to total 8. I am thrilled with the results! Assessed current wardrobe today and seem to be settling nicely into XS/S tops, size 8 dress and 6/8 slacks in petites. Most interim clothing will need to be donated. Other basics go back to seamstress. Appetite, bowels and Water intake have returned to normal. Do not wish to loose anymore weight. Looking forward to moving into spring as the new stabilized me after an intense 16 months of bariatric research, planning, scheduling, gastric sleeve, nutritional and lifestyle adjustments and lastly, plastics. It's all good. So very thankful for the opportunity to have halted the obesity cycle.

I can see the difference too! You are looking positively SLIM.

+1 on the bare leg + nude shoes, you legs look longer already.

(are the dresses and jeans the spoils of your recent shopping spree? Love 'em)

No, these were all sale items I had found when I was a size 10/12 thinking let me get them and just see! I found an absolutely gorgeous navy blue couture dress that is a true size 6. Now I know I'm smaller - as we know the designer lines are accurate. So excited to share the fruits of my labor these past few weeks. I desperately needed to replace all the basics... dresses, tops, bottoms, belts etc. Mission accomplished! ;]

6 week post op

The sash + cupcakes (my surgeon has a sweet tooth) was in honor and celebration of my plastic surgeon at our six week follow-up appointment today! I'm absolutely thrilled with my new improved 2020 figure. The Mrs. Frankenstein 2020 refers to our inside joke teasing her she gifted me with 60" of suture lines. Haha. My weight is 122. Height 5' 0" and the bust measurement 36C (down from 40DD) with weight loss and breast lift. The removal of 5 pounds of loose abdominal skin brought forth a 28" waist and 36" hips. I seem to be settling in a 6/8 dress; XS to S tops and 4/6/8 slacks depending on there style. Size XS in hosiery. The surgeon would like me to begin transitioning from my beloved compression garment cocoon to a Genie or Coobie bra and Spanx bottoms. Does anyone have experience with these brands post plastics? New territory for me. For 25 + years I was a Jockey cotton brief and Bali underwire bra girl. I find the foundation departments a bit overwhelming! I am still in the process of seamstress alterations with most of my new basics + foundational wardrobe. ;]

No matter what stage you find yourself whether in pre or post WLS; the actual weight loss process; maintenance; And perhaps, now contemplating plastic surgery...Forge ahead with confidence and resolve to take good care of yourself addressing the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of self. I can promise you will NEVER look back. Ask yourself the tough questions seeking honest answers to why the weight elevated risking your health and well being. Here's my top weight tipping 295 pounds in 2014. Later teetering between 283 - 248 pounds with little stability. Only WLS and then plastics could bring me to such a time as this. Continued victory and much success in your personal journey toward better health, joy and happiness. You are worth the investment. You are priceless!

Eight weeks post op

Very thankful to have the physical stamina and healthier lifestyle now in place to face these unprecedented times. It almost seems trite to talk about myself or my plastics in this current climate our nation now faces. I am beginning to experiment with foundations weaning away from the compression garments. Purchasing fitted clothing has become a rewarding and most satisfying experience after plastics. My favorite aspect is the new 28" waistline that works perfectly with an array of new belts. I have lost a total of eight pounds since January 21 surgery date - five were Excess skin removal. Now on lock down and home bound mode - I have the time to explore new recipes and cook books. The chia pudding recipes are especially delicious and highly nutritious, as well as permissible comfort food. Also, have been enjoying PBS Masterpiece Theatre - Vienna Blood. An excellent mystery production and worthy diversion.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
