This is just a check-in post to let you see my progress 8 months out of surgery. As you can see, not a lot of change since the last update! My tummy, especially the lower portion, is in a constant state of swelling during the day. Some days it's severe & others it just gets a little bloated looking. This photo was taken first thing in the morning before the "swell hell" could go in to full effect.
I've been hitting the gym hard as usual, but the only part of my body that I'm having any luck with toning seem to be my back. I'll be starting with some new gym classes in a couple of weeks & hope that will make a bigger difference because I have to be swimsuit ready by the end of December! Unfortunately there is only so much that I can do as I do have so much extra loose skin that is around my torso, arms, and lower legs. I've accepted that I can only do the best that I can do, and that involves lots of gym training, staying active and appreciating my curvy body just how it is!
Thanks to all who have been checking in! I will update when the big 1 year mark comes around! I cannot believe that I'm already 8 months out!!
