    Loose skin?

    I had a lot of excess skin that will never go away. After 21 months and loosing over 200+ pounds, I had skin reduction surgery. If you look under Members Photos, under the topic “Before/After Skin reduction”, you can see what I had done.

    Energy? and transition

    Both WLS and Skin reduction surgery drained all energy out of me I want to say or was 2-3 months after WLS that I felt better and started doing things again. I went through Skin reduction on July13, and now staring to get everything back to normal and doing some extra stuff. Be patient. Your energy will come back and improve. It’s just different for each individual.

    Having a sleeve in November :-)

    Hi Amy. welcome to TT. I suggest to wear loose clothing for the trip home and maybe a neck/head pillow for sleeping in the hospital bed.

    started puree today.....

    I did 30 minutes before, ate my food and then waited 30 minutes after. Just think of your stomach as a sieve. Put puréed foods in it, then if you add your water, it flushes out quickly. Let your stomach/system absorb what vitamins and nutritions are in that food.

    Changed pictures up

    I was diabetic, had high blood pressure, sleep apnea, been removed from all medications and sleep really good at night. Feeling good but if I don’t lose the last 40pounds to get to my goal weight, I am happy with how I am and this weight.

    Changed pictures up

    I was bored today, so I redid my pictures. One is when I was in St Louis in July 2015 weighing almost 500 pounds. The 2nd one from Oct 2016 right before my surgery. The after pictures are self explanatory. Current weight: 220
