Today I am on my 28th day and I have seen already changes on the way my clothes fits, I'm still wearing my under garmet as much as I can, I'm still a little sore from my stomach and my arms, Im useing less my car and taking long walk and looking forward in purchasing a manual treadmill to work out at home, I have posted pictures today.

so its been 2 months, I just have one concern, My right under arm looks great I have very little skin hanging not too noticeable, but my left under arm still have a lot of skin hanging. Spoke with Doctor regarding this issue he said's that just like we have one arm longer then the other, and a breast large then the other, I just it changes by the 6 months the Doctor advises me to wait for 6 months cause I am still swelled. Hopefully it evens out like the other right arm & hopefully it wont be an additional cost to fix it if there's any problem..Other the that I still feel a little numbed from my ab and a little bit of loose skin but its not hanging need to keep up with exercise and eating right.
