Yesterday was a tough day mentally for me. I woke up feeling like I was that 300 lb girl again and couldn’t see my current self in the mirror. I tried to not let the day defeat me and decided to look at before and after pictures to try to get the head caught up. It worked somewhat..
I still have a hard time believing I went from this:
I posted these comparison pictures on Instagram and had many questions about loose skin. I will be honest, right now I’m not brave enough to take a picture of my lower belly area or inner thighs for the world to see but trust me when I say it’s a scary sight! LOL I have a bunch of loose skin in those areas. The picture above may say otherwise but let me just say it’s those workout pants that I am wearing that are sucking it all in! I also was training for a half marathon when that picture was taken and I was a bit more tone than I am now.
Someone asked me if I planned to get plastics. My answer right now, no. I’m a pansy, I don’t like pain and after following some other post-op folks who have had plastics I don’t think I could put myself through that. Plus financially, I’d rather spend that money on traveling the world! So for now, I’m trying to embrace my loose skin and use it as a reminder of where I’ve come from and where I never want to return.
QUESTION: Have you lost a lot of weight and deal with loose skin? If so, do you plan on getting plastics?
