I have an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon on April 1st.
Despite the fact that I have been exercising regularly for most of my weight loss, and pretty intensely for the last year and a half, the “apron” of fat around my mid-section is not going down in size. If it is doing anything it is drooping more. What used to kind of stick out now sags down over my waistline. I can no longer avoid the fact that I pushed my skin too far for too long. I’m going to have to have an operation to finish this journey.
The question is – When?
That’s why I’m going to see a doctor.
I know for a fact the amount of skin that is hanging on me is adding to my current weight. I don’t know how much. I know that right now it’s near impossible for me to reach any kind of goal weight because my current weight is being influenced by factors beyond my control.
I’m just tired of knowing that I’ve come so far but looking at myself with my shirt off and not feeling like it has made any difference.
It’s likely to be expensive. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Maybe I’ll set up a Paypal begging site.
The recovery is likely to take a few months. That being the case, I’ll probably look at doing this sometime after Dragon*Con this year. That will also give me a few more months to continue the diet and exercise routine to prepare myself for it.
Yeah. Very nervous about this. Can you tell?
