    My loose skin has actually been improving slowly but surely. Although I do want some new boobs. LOL.

    I was surprised to learn that I'm 3 pounds lighter after my breast surgery. I'm not thinner anywhere, so I assume it had to come from my breasts.

    My plastic reconstructive surgeon didn't weigh the skin I had removed when I had a 1/2 body and arm lift at the end of 2015 as it was just skin and no fat. You may have to join this site to be able to view. *WARNING* Contains graphic photos.

    I would love to do that but that huge cut scares me to death. Looks about 100 more times painful than sleeve surgery. You will be thrilled with the results I'm sure! From a chicken.

    My TT involved removing 7 inches of loose skin - I've always had a "pooch" and still do even with the TT
    I had the sleeve in June 2012, hit below my goal by November 2012, maintained for over a year and had the TT done January 2015

    And not gonna lie it hurt like holy ungodly hell! Imagine doing 1,000,000 situps and crunches in a 15 minute time frame... it was worth it but OMG I was a baby and I have a really high tolerance for pain. My surgeon liked to kill me when I hadn't even bothered to fill the pain meds.... I just don't take them unless I am in terrible horrible level 150 pain.
