…I’m less than 20lbs to my post surgery goal weight. 18lbs to go as of this morning to be specific. I anticipate reaching my post surgery goal weight in June. (155# is the number).
My post surgery goal weight will put me at a BMI of 26.6. This is still technically considered overweight…by 1.7 points…but I have to take in to consideration the loose skin on my aging bod is probably in excess of 10lbs…and yeah, I hope to have it all removed/tightened up at some point.
Thigh lift (thighplasty) and arm lift (brachioplasty) are in my future…some day. I will need to be stabilized in maintenance for a period of months before I even go for a consultation. It’s not totally for vanity, it’s for how clothes fit on me, and how I fit in chairs, saddles, cars, movie theater seats etc. I just want to fit physically comfortably in anything and everything I do.
I’m sick and tired of gaping waist bands and tight sleeves no matter what size I am. I didn’t have 80 to 90% of my stomach removed to have the sagging reminders of my YOYOing weight over the past few decades hanging around forever. So that’s that.
