After all this time... I finally made it! On August 25th, I had a circumferential abdominoplasty and a mastopexy to help remove skin. The surgeon removed 22 lbs of skin but after losing that, the scale is still moving in the right direction! I must say that once I saw 199 on the scale, I cried like a baby. I started this journey over 7 years ago when I had the sleeve. Just shy of 2 years post addition of the duodenal switch, I never dreamed this would actually happen. I knew it was possible but starting out 425+ pounds... onederland just seems elusive! But I'm here! I'm only 39 pounds away from my goal weight and for the first time in my life, I truly believe that I will get there!
