Hit goal today! (Loose skin pics)

Posted (edited)

I’m thrilled to have reached goal today! Coincidentally, it happened on the anniversary of my initial consult with my surgeon. I’m down 100lbs and feel lighter than air!

Pics are below! For those that wonder about loose skin, yeah I gots it! I’m having PS to remove it, but I’ll take the loose skin over fat any day! Tried to show what I look like with clothes on, with shirt pulled up and with loose skin untucked out of my pants! LOL!

Congratulations! You look great! What has been the biggest benefit so far? Favorite "go to" meal or snack? Best NSV?

Thanks so much! Biggest benefit is definitely the way I'm able to move, run up a flight of stairs, carry in groceries without huffing and puffing. Basically the things that non-obese people take for granted!

Favorite snack is greek yogurt, esp Dannon light n' fit caramel apple pie.

Best NSV is hard, b/c there have been so many. I would choose buying clothes off the clearance rack. The reason being is that clearance rack clothes always seem to be size S or XS. Now I'm small enough to get the great deals! LOL!

Congrats!!!! So happy for you!!! As tempting as it is, I would suggest not rushing into plastics. Give your new bod at least 6 months and you will probably find that some of the looseness will tighten on its own. I was 62 with even more loose skin, but it doesn't look nearly as bad now as when I first lost the weight. Again, so very happy for you and your new active life!

So agree with the clothes!!!!!! Fun to buy the cute small sizes, But...... I cannot find bras in the stores now, and have to order on line, which is a pain. I went from 44DD to a 34A and stores don't carry my favorite brand/style in such a small size. I also have noticed some of the cute dresses and outfits in some of my favorite catalogs don't come in anything smaller than a Medium. Lots of styles for the XL and XXL, but not for a Small. Oh, what a terrible dilemma, right? : :) :) :) The great side of this is that sometimes I DON'T EVEN WEAR A BRA and no one notices!!!!!!! :)

I love it! Here’s the tag from the pants in my photos. XS Athleta on clearance! Still overpriced in my opinion, but I deserve it! Lol! The entire clearance rack was XS! I’m not truly an XS but can manage when it’s stretchy yoga pants!
