    Default How Is Everyone?

    I haven't been on in a while. So much always going on. I have been doing well, since surgery 3 years and 5 months ago. I just got back from a vacation at the beach and indulged a little too much but not worried.

    I have kept active almost the entire time: walking, Zumba, jogging, bicycling, and using dumbells. Since Covid, I havent been to the gym since March so no zumba for me. I hop on the treadmill here at home.
    After all the weight loss (130 pounds), I am NOW going to have the abdominoplasty and arm lift surgery , and my neck tightened up. The droopy boobs can stay... I DO NOT want to deal with any kind of implants in my chest. Having MS and RA, I have enough autoimmune issues that are stable and do not want to ask for trouble. This will hopefully take place in a couple months when its cooler. I am young at heart and active and the bat wings drive me CRAZY! Along with the excess stomach droops that are there. I had NO intentions of ever doing this, but I figured "Why Not?" I worked so hard for this and if I can fit into clothing better and have tighter looking arms and stomach...I am going do it!MEJENAug28thcrop.jpg
