Banded Babe or Shar Pei?

Okay - calling all bandster veterans!! I have thought about excess skin, but I guess I really haven't THOUGHT about excess skin. Do you have any advice for those of us just starting out on this journey. Are there any magic lotions, potions, home remedies, etc? Or should I just buy stock in Spanx now???
Okay - seriously --- I'd rather live with excess skin than all this fat keeping me from living life so it's a trade off I'm willing to live with.
However, I must admit that I am a little nervous about losing 'the girls'. One of the few advantages of being morbidly obese is that I have amazing full perky knockers - I really don't want to lose them (she says as worry spreads across her face). Does this seem to be a problem for bandsters? Any advice here? Or do I just hope that my Spanx stock splits three or four times and that I can use my returns to buy new boobies!
I guess I shouldn't be too upset if someone mistakes me for a Shar Pei - they are sooooo darn cute!


  1. My boobs have gone a bit...long. I went from a 46DDD to 42D and I have to sort-of fold them up and shove them in my bra. I'm sure that plastic surgery is in my future, but it beats having those nearly 70 pounds of blubber on my body!

  2. I am wondering about this as well! Good questions!

  3. I've lost more than 100 lbs. and am at goal. I did some near-naked pix when I hit 100 lbs. You can see them here:
