OMG!!! I couldn't believe it! They fit AND zipped and I didn't have to lay on the bed with pliers to do it! I cried like a little baby!!! I also wanted to include a progress pic. It's a picture of me at my heaviest weighing 340 pounds and wearing my Old Navy 34 plus size women's stretch jeans and my new regular size 4! It also has 2 pics of all of my excess skin. I can't wait to get that crap cut off! I have worked too hard to be trapped underneath almost 30 pounds of extra skin!

They want to do a circumfrential abdominoplasty, brachioplasty, inner thigh lift, and mastopexy, and augmentation. The only problem is that it costs over $33,000. We're a single income military family, so I don't know that we'll ever be able to afford it. Saving a little at a time. Wish me luck!

I "upgraded" to what I call an 'advanced panniculectomy', which is having my belly button moved up. I have had 5 kids and was 52 years old and didn't care to have a tummy tuck (whi*****ludes muscle tightening), I just wanted to have the saggy skin gone. So now I have a pretty scar and lots of stretch marks, but they don't bother me at all. The bruises that you saw in the before photo were from my gallbladder removal that I had about a month before.

I have had a couple friends who are military wives who had tricare pay to get the extra skin removed.  It was a process of LOTS of documentation of how the skin is causing issues example infections

Congratulations!!!! You look so good! When dressed, I would never know you have extra skin. You are very brave for sharing those pictures!

Do you have a PS planned already?

Congratulations again! You really do look great!!!
