I'm very excited! Just finished my 1-year checkup with my surgeon. They were thrilled with my progress. I was shocked to find that their average for excess weight loss after a year is 50-55%. I am at 83%!!! I had no idea and am so happy!! My BMI

Finally at the point where even in my clothes the hanging belly is bugging me. Since I no longer buy long tunics I need something to lift and even all that out. I'm looking for tried and true suggestions for briefs that do the trick but don't cost an
