Hey supergirl! How are you?? I saw on the ps forum that you are getting another surgery? Thats awesome, when and what are you having done? I am doing well, working with a group of 5 people right now in my second sugar detox, it has been really helpful for me to go though it with them! Always good to reinforce breaking those old habits! My hubby and kids bought a flourless dark chocolate cheesecake for Mothers day, and I know I had too much! But that is behind me know, and Im glad to be back to sugar free
I had to gastric bypass 8 years ago in May and just got my first IT Works Body Wraps in the mail the yesterday. I was going to do one this evening, but then found out that they don't recommend you doing one after you have tanned so I am going to wait till tomorrow night to do my first wrap. I hope it can tone up my stomach, thighs and arms since I am going on vacation to the beach in 4 weeks and want to look half way decent.
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health - people, food, situations, things, and anything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Now I know its "love of oneself". Charlie Chaplin
I had gastric bypass surgery about 7 years ago. I still have lots of loose skin. I don't have the money needed to get the skin removed. So, I recently tried the It Works Body Wraps, I have lost 13 1/2 inches off my midsection in just three wraps. If you are interested please check out my webpage: https:torriew.myitworks.com/HOME. If you have any questions you can email me directly at email@example.com
I had the gastric bypass surgery about 6 years ago. Nine months after having the surgery, I got pregnant. My skin is a big mess. I don't have the financial means to have the skin removed. I have recently been using the It Works ultimate applicators. I have lost 13 1/2 inches off my mid section and tightened my skin. I will include my webpage where you can look at the information. You can also email and I can show you some before and after pictures. You can also look on you tube at the videos online. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Six years after having the gastric bypass surgery I am still struggling with my weight but I have lost over a 100 pounds and have managed to keep most of it off. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Just wanted to post my hubby's website he started in support of me and all I have been through with the fight against obesity. There is a lot of good information, and lots of GBS recipes.
I am interested in pursuing a career in nursing and nutrition. I was wondering what the possibility of starting company that gave home care to the obese would be. Diet and workout plans would be provided and if allowed, I would stay at their home monitoring the workout and diet. I've never heard of a career that did that and I'm not sure if I would be able to have that much freedom.
I don't even know, send me a way to message you and in the mean time I will check my measurements. Thanks for your support. MT
I do know how to sew but have never altered my bra size... sounds like it might be kind of tricky! Perhaps looking up you tube tutorials might help? What bra size/clothing size are you? I wonder if I have any hand me downs that might work for you, I'd be happy to help you out and send them to you if that would work!
Blessings to you!
Oh wow, sorry to hear you have had such a rough go! But glad to hear you are feelling better! Not sure if you are on facebook, but I just posted a blood building juice recipe on my health coaching page if you are interested! I think you are doing great to up your iron containing foods!
here is the link to my facebook page with the juice recipe, I hope it helps!
Take care! And many blessings for continued healing
I really think that surgery to have it removed is the only real way to get rid of it. Unfortunately our skin is like a balloon that has been blown up and then had all the air let out of it again, once you do that it will never go back all the way to tight and firm. I understand about being scared of having the surgery, I have 3 younger kids and a husband that need me and I know its scary!
I also know that there are things that will improve the excess skin, (but not take it away) like keeping your self hydrated with good pure water, cutting down or eliminating caffine, eating good quality nutrition with lots of fruits and veggies, and there is a natural supplement called MSM that helps with healthy skin, nails and hair (I take 1,500 mg of this daily) also of course lots of good quality rest and exercise will all help, but again..... not remove the skin! I know there are other things like infrared saunas which promote sweating/detoxing and natural skin wraps that help draw out toxins and reduce inches.
I have lost 120's and I am looking into excess skin removal myself, I still want to lose another 20 lb's before I move forward on that though, I have come to the acceptance that the skin is not going to go away, and it is no longer part of me, I do not want to carry around the baggage of my old self for the rest of my life.
Best of luck to you!
I am in Pre Op an losing a LOT of weight....I have NO income and so thrift stores are not an option at the moment....I do know how to sew pants and tops and have a sewing machine....I need to make my bras smaller..... both the cup size and the width around. If anyone has a bit of practical advice on how to do this please respond....do I make the cups smaller first or the part in the middle where they connect? They are so darn expensive and I can't keep buying new ones til after I get my surgery and reconstruction done......thanks
I am looking for some advice or guidance on things that work. I have lost a total of 70 lbs in 12 months from using Phentermine. I have talked to my doctor about the excess skin "apron" and how to reduce it since I have been having an issue with rashes. I was told that surgery would be the only way to get rid of it, but I would like to know if anyone has used compression garments to help this problem. I am scared to death to have the surgery for fear of complications. Plus, I have two small children. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
