    Hello everyone! I hope you're doing well. Just coming in for my 5 month check in. I'm down a little over 83lbs which is fantastic. I got married last Friday (still having a proper ceremony in September). I let my new husband see me naked for the very first time. 6 years and I finally had the confidence to let him. He was so happy and just seeing him so happy made all of this worth it.

    Despite my weight loss, my back has been getting worse and worse. I have an appointment next week to have it looked at/adjusted so I'm hoping that helps.

    The 16th I have more blood work so wellw see how I'm doing with that. Hair loss still sucks but I'm getting about 125g of protein a day so tin hoping it stops soon.

    I haven't been lifting as much as I should be and it's showing in my other measurements so starting tonortomits back to resistance training.

    All in all, this has absolutely been the best decision in my life.

    Good luck to you all!

    So good to hear from you and I’m glad you’re happy with your new life! Wonderful news on the wedding and I’d say that guy of yours is a “keeper”. By September you’ll be even smaller!

    I am a little worried about losing so much the smaller dress I ordered won't fit. To think that's something I would ever have to worry about

    I am a little afraid of losing too much that it won't be able to be adjusted. It can go down to a size 12 and I'm a 16 now so I doubt I'll lose quite that much. As much as I would like to.

    My primary was able to help my back. He called them...something something hernias and it was unbelievably painful for him to fix. I had three along my hips and back and he literally had to use his fingers to force them back in.

    Herniated discs? I didn’t think you could treat them by manually pushing them back in?

    They're not my discs though I do have herniated discs higher up. It's muscle that broke through the tissue along either side of my hips. He definitely did something right since I'm much, much better now. From what I read, I think he said lumbar triangle hernias. It's around the same place he worked on.
