Thanks so much for posting this and blogging it. I have a consultation in a few weeks. I'm terrified. I don't know if I am actually going to go through with surgery or not, so this is my first step. I appreciate being able to see what I might be getting myself in to.

Oh wow! Good luck at the consult. By then you'll have seen before and afters of me - I think I'm am just realizing what an incredible difference this is going to make in my body and my life.

Hope my blog is giving you an honest picture of what it's like so far.

Hope you are sleeping better and feeling better and better. It's hard to look at pictures, but it's good you are sharing them as this is a reality many of us have to decide on - excess skin or not.

Cherrypie: I went to your blog and saw the pictures and the transformation is incredible not just the surgery but also your weight loss you should be so proud of yourself because losing that amount of weight is truly astonishing. You also said that you don't have a bikini body but I disagree even with stretch marks you look amazing and I think the suit you chose is really well suited to your new body shape. I think you look amazing and should flaunt that body like no tomorrow because you have worked hard for it!
