Hiya! It’s going alright. I went to my 2 wk post op follow up and lost 15 lbs. My skin still healing, but feels itchy lol like a dry scab. lol The end of this month I’ll have to gradually update the clothes sizes. Right now I have a lot of drawstring waistbands and leggings.  I’ve added a pic of my peak weight (280) before the surgery and my 2 wk post op. (242). I’m excited for this new journey. =P

15lb in 2 weeks is outstanding!

I hear you on the itchy skin - mine was like that (I have dry skin anyway).  Try something like straight up almond oil straight out of the shower on damp skin.  That was a lifesaver for me and I still use it after every shower.  It's rich in oleic and linoleic acids which make a very good natural moisturizing agent and it's often recommended for a baby's skin.
