OMG I DID IT!! REACHED GOAL AND EVEN ONE POUND UNDER!!!
Now onto the harder part.. keeping this biatch OFF and maintain!
Oo man! I mean.. I did gain ONE pound in CO, I was good though.. ate what I normally eat and my daughter and her SO Josh even invited me to a vegan restaurant a few times (SOO good, they liked it too!!). Josh also made me a mushroom steak one night with roasted veggies. I LOVE how supportive they are. I am so blessed. I wish my TX peeps were.. but it's okay.. I am so much more mentally stronger this time around.
For anyone comtemplating this surgery.. YES it's trading one set of problems for another (there are a lucky few who don't) - but I wouldn't have had it any other way. It is a life-saving tool.. nothing more.
I never considered plastics first time around, but I am almost 50 and well.. the skin doesn't quite bounce back with kindness. I maybe have 7-10# of excessive skin on my legs, tummy, arms and chest. I started taking liquid collagen to help a little with the turkey neck, but it's too soon to tell.
I will keep up with this blog. I need accountability. I love the support and kindness we all have shown each other through these journies. Not all are the same. But we have the biggest, most courageous hearts. Fight on OH fam
