I'm excited for my new journey. Y'all keep me in yours prayers that this go well. Thanks to everybody for your support during this process. My final weigh in was 196.5. I'm just happy I didn't get give up.

Update on surgery

He did an awesome job. This is after surgery. I'm still swollen and bruised. Once the swelling goes down you'll see better results. I have a lot of drainage that's the only thing I don't like, because they don't give you nothing to really catch it. My surgery went well. The pain is horrible after surgery because I cried until I got my pain medication. My pain level right now between a 7 and a 8.

Day 2 after surgery

I'm still experiencing some pain but very sore. Everything looks good. I'm walking around. I had a massage did on today and it was painful but helpful.

Day 3

I got a massage and it made the pain feel better. I'm waiting on the Doctor but everything looks good.

Four day post

I'm loving my results. Little to no drainage. Incisions are healing good. I'm moving around good.

I made a week

I'm still sore. NO PAIN. Everything looks good. I started back to work on Monday and been taking it easy. I been walking and trying not to sit too long.


Almost post-surgery a month. Still swelling and soreness. I want to start back working out but no sure if that's the right thing to do. I'm happy with my results as I mention previously. I like the fact he made it look nature and not as if I had surgery.
