    Waiting is not my strong suit lol I have pretty much everything I can do done or already made appointments for lol. Psych is already done but she wants a surgery date before she sends her letter, I go next Thursday to see if I need the sleep study, my PCP has already sent over all my blood work and her letter of approval.. idk if I have to see my nutritionist before they want to give me a surgery date.. so frustrated with it.. so for now im just focusing on the 16lbs the PA told me I have to lose before surgery.. im down 10lbs since the 2nd! But the next time I see my dietitian isn't till March 3rd seems so far away.

Aggressive skin removal

by Melissa222 on 07-18-2014 at 07:45 PM
I finally had my panni and vertical done on Tuesday.
I stayed in the hospital overnight and everything went great.
The pain isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
I had sooo much skin because my rolls were really gross and also shaped funny so my surgeon had a hard time trying to smooth it out but i'm happy because that big sack of hanging skin is GONE. In total 8 pounds of skin was removed.
I still have my drains in because Ive been draining a lot so doc said to keep

Today is my last day of vacation here in Massachusetts, It's been fun!
I attended a wedding and wore a dress, I went to Boston and walked around taking pictures, I ate a cannoli and enjoyed every small bite of it, I went to the movies, went to see Paramore and Fall Out Boy in Mansfield. I got to see my family and take pictures and we also had a BBQ.
I woke up this morning excited to go home and I'm sitting at my mother in law's dining room table and I check my email and I have an

I am 168.2 (total lost since Feb 2013 is 172.4)
My goal is still 160 and I'm slowly getting there.
I feel like an average human now. I go out in public and have no issue if people see me. I'm taking a 2 week vacation starting Wednesday I'm going to Massachusetts to visit my family. I'm also attending a wedding, going to tour a castle, going to Canobie in NH on Father's Day and going to see Paramore and Fall Out Boy while up there. All things I would never ever have done 1 year ago.
