I backed out of surgery, and have lost nearly 140 lbs. so far!

    Great job! You are an inspiration to all and proof that it can be done. I have always maintained that surgery is a difficult road and I respect those who are willing to risk it but why do it if you can do it on your own. I had a lapband several years ago and had nothing but issues with it. They finally removed it then I lost the weight on my own once it was gone. I thought it was going to be the magic fix but I found out that it wasn't. Losing weight is hard work no matter what tools you have in your toolbox.

    BTW I had my excess skin removed a little over a year ago and although I had some complications it was worth it in the end. When you get to that point feel free to message me if you want to know more about it.
