As of 11/14/2011---I am a little over 7 mos post op. I have lost 70 lbs, &amp;amp;amp; feeling great! I am loosing at a steady rate, which is good...2 to 3 lbs every week. Now, I think it has slowed down a little, but it is ok. I don't have any skin problems as of yet, &amp;amp;amp; hopefully, I won't! I still have the same problem areas...they are smaller, but still there! underarm(bat wings), lower stomache(tire), &amp;amp;amp; inner thighs. No skin hanging, but it still isn't toned! Working on that, too! Having a hard time with a routine exercise schedule, but I do exercise at least three times a week, but need to improve! Picture #1- Smiling for the camera! 1st goal-successful..out of the 200s. Workinig on second &amp; third goals, now! So excited!
