Project Ramona: Droopy Butt Cure
Posted 1/7/2013 12:39:00 PM

Is it true that if you don't get regular body wraps during rapid weight loss, your excess calf skin will eventually drape over your ankles!?!?!

You want to know what life is like after weight loss surgery?  Its full of suggestions. My e-mail and Facebook inboxes are filled with sales pitches and advice.  From how to tighten saggy skin to how to mix a delicious protein shake in my car. Even my mom has weighed in with some wacky suggestions.  She found a somewhat disturbing-looking undergarment at Walmart to solve my droopy butt problem. 

Some of the ideas are brilliant and others are just weird.  Either people want to sell me something or save me from myself.  The great thing about having the folks running the surgical weight loss program at Catawba Valley Medical Center on my side is the experience they offer.  Most people, even those who've had surgery like me, have just one perspective to offer.  They know one person who had surgery and base all of their knowledge on a sample size of one.  Libby Shaver has worked with hundreds of patients. When you begin to wonder if your progress is normal or if your hanging skin just might tighten up with exercise she can give you real perspective.   

There are different surgical procedures for weight loss.  People start in different places.  I just got an e-mail from a guy who has lost 210 pounds.  I had just over 80 excess pounds to lose. The way we look and the way we lose simply won't be the same.  Unless you are talking to folks like Libby, you have to take about 80% of the advice and opinions you get with a grain of salt.

    Despite the positive and negative media hype about HGH, Buy Igtropin there are large numbers of traditional “old school” doctors coming out against HGH Growth Hormone, saying its benefits are minimal or dangerous, ansomone and many “progressive” and “forward-thinking” doctors are coming out in favor of HGH Growth Hormone Injections as in the case of the A4M. On the balance there seems to be more research pointing to HGH in low and moderate doses offering significant health benefits.Jintropin The fact that millions of people around the world are rushing to use HGH Injections and staying on programs, through Board Certified Physicians, Kigtropin tends to corroborate the research suggesting its positive benefits.
