I had a mastopexy and upper body lift in August. From my Amazon order history, it looks like I was wearing a 36DD pre-op. (For sake of clarity, the bras that I'm talking about are all Wacoal brand and the brand has VERY consistent sizing.)

It seems like a while since I've made an update.

Initially, I was using three sections of bandaging on each leg plus one section at the groin crease on each side. I'm now down to one section on my lower right leg and just one section for my

Today is the day I should be able to exercise again. But it's not. Since I'm still healing. Bah humbug. I have begun to question the feasibility of running a half marathon in March, thankfully I don't need to make the decision to downgrade until Ma

I figure I'll get us going since I believe InsertFitness is on vacation!

This is a challenging week for many of us due to holiday food, so remember to be kind to yourself and know that "failing" your way of eating one (or two or three) days d

I should probably wait and post this until after I see my surgeon today, so I can include whatever information I get from him, but whatever. I'll update in a comment or an edit to this post once I get home.

But I have awesome news I wanted t

I posted this in the VSG forum, but figured I'd post it here too because it's probably even more relevant to those of us who start off in the SMO range.

My fourth surgiversary isn't until March 2018, but I started the surgery process a bit over four years ago and I started in on lifestyle modification for REAL at the beginning of 2014. So I'm in that four-year time period and I wanted to share my expe

So I'm still fairly house bound from my most recent surgery (although I hope to try driving for the first time tomorrow, I can't wait)!! I've read some, but decided to get the newest season of Project Runway off the DVR finally.

And oh my go

I've had a Garmin Vivoactive that I LOVE and I've been wanting a HR monitor. I figured I'd get the Vivoactive HR, but never really got around to it. Then, just recently, the Vivoactive 3 was released and I LOVE the list of features it has! And the w

Time for the big update you've all been waiting patiently for! (Hey, I can pretend, right?)

My appointment with my surgeon about my complications was this morning at 9:30. He's SUPER busy this time of year, so I think I got taken back at 9:45?

A post on the main forums about shoe size got me thinking about this. I consider myself to have been pretty prepared going into weight loss surgery and subsequent weight loss, but then there were things that I was COMPLETELY unprepared for and, 20/20

If you’ve checked the plastics forum you know I’ve been having a pretty rough recovery from my leg lift. One of the results of this is that I haven’t weighed myself since the day before surgery. My justifications for not weighing are: I’m not n

My last update was 11/18 and 6 days have gone by. I’m now 18 days post-op from a medical leg lift (thighs and calves) plus a revision to my lower body lift. I never say anything about the revision since it’s been a complete non-issue. Read previous
