Hi and thanks for sharing! Congrats on your enormous weight loss - you must feel great! I've lost a lot of weight too (88 lbs) and am scheduled for my TT on July 29. I am terrified, but also so excited! I feel like I should be able to be happy in my body since I worked so hard to lose the weight, so can totally relate to how you feel!
