i lost 80lb just by going to the gym sept 7 2011 marks the 2 year start day. I am at a standstill or should i say i work out daily but have reached my plateau, i am happy with my size just not my shape so i am going to have the body lift, i am a healthy, active 28 thick female and does not want children and i am my own boss so i can afford to take as much time off as needed. any suggestions?

it is ALWAYS good to hear the before or preop as well as postop, i just want to look great outside my clothes. The clothes tighten my loose skin up well, but after i take them off i look in the mirror and dont like what i see . so i will keep everyone posted !!!!!

Good day

Hi there,

You're right that the gym cannot tighten that amount of excess skin. I'm sure you'll feel great once you look the way you feel.

I haven't had a body lift yet, but I'm anticipating needing it in about a year. Reviews like yours are really important to people like myself who will be having the same procedures. So, thanks for sharing your experience.

it is now 36 days until pre op and i had a horrible dream that my doc. screwed me up and i was so embarrassed , lol though i know this WILL not be the case, i just got nervous because i am reading so many different stories on here! it is just my mind playing tricks on me while i am asleep because when i am awake that does not happen. But I thank God for this site because i literally spend atleast 90 mins on here a day, it will never get old , it is now a part of my daily routine to log on and read all about it !!!!

Thanks for the update MissDeevah. I'm so glad you're getting so much out of RealSelf. It's normal to be nervous before surgery and I'm sure that's all your dreams are: nervous energy. Just focus on how great you'll look and feel after the surgery.

two weeks pre-op , and im so ready for this challenge that i WILL come out as a winner. it may sound a lil crazy but im anxious for the after feeling , lol i can not wait to see what the feeling is going to be like the day after !!!! i have a high tolerance for pain so its really no worries, the biggest fear is keeping it from getting infected and healing properly,everything else is in the bag.

6 weeks in and i feel god, on my two week mark i started standing up straight and working . my sleeping pattern is weird but other then that i am in full speed ahead!
one thing i can say is that at first i ran to the hospital twice in one week during my second week because i had that fluid wave , a seroma,but i was told i was still fresh out of surgery and it was too soon to say if it would be a problem or not. but 4 weeks later i am happy to say that my body reabsorbed the fluid that was there i just had to be patient . I will resume working out jan 1 i can not wait! i look good and i will post pics after my two month mark
