My story is much the same as many I've read on RealSelf. I had a daughter when I was 28. Over the last 19 1/2 years, I have exercised and followed a clean diet. I never could get rid of the icky extra skin on my tummy. Honestly, I never thought I would get this type of procedure. I have always hid my flaws under cute clothes and good bras. It wasn't until the last six months or so that I... more
30 years of struggling with my weight took its toll on me mentally as well as physically. I remember thinking "no point exercising and eating right now, my body is beyond repair." with my skin baggy and stretched like an old mother cat. I was 5'3 and 243 lbs when I was finally brave enough to step on a scale ( I imagine that i was around 260 at one point maybe more.) I am amazingly blessed... more
I have 5 amazing boys, ages 7 down to 2 year old twins. I gained about 55 lbs with my first child and that was when my muscles separated beyond compare. Although I work out regularly and weigh less now than I did prior to having children, I still always look like I am 3 months pregnant. I also got stretch marks all over my entire belly area, mostly with my first, but always one or two more... more
I've been using this site as a super helpful tool for the last 3 years. NOW I finally get to start my own journey.
I'm 27 and have 3 kids (6yr, 4yr and 4 mos). The first left me a bit saggy, the second alot saggy and my 3rd she left her mark and then some. I was going to have a tt w/mr, bl,ba and lipo about a year ago but we got a surprise baby instead. I stopped nursing 2 months ago... more
Ever since I had my fourth child 7 years ago things didn't snap back like things did with my other three. I wasn't shocked I felt lucky that things went as great as they did after my first three and I was lucky to have "lasted" this long.
While In labor with my last, I felt my tummy rip, I will never forget the pain or feeling its odd to be able to pin point the moment. After that I was... more
I am 40 years old, have 3 children and am married to the love of my life! I could never begin to say enough wonderful things about my husband. He has always loved me (from the time I was 125 pounds and even when I was 208 pounds after my pregnancies).
My bad body journey began 22 years ago with the birth of our first son. I didn't gain a lot of weight however at age 19, I had a c-section... more
I'm 27 year old mommy of 3 beautiful boys! They are 2,4, and 6. I am only 5'0 and weigh 113 lbs. I got really huge with all 3 of my kids and have been dealing with my stomach looking unbearable! Before I had kids, I was always skinny. I gained about 60lbs with the first one, 55lbs with the second one and 53 with the last one. I of course lost most of my weight from each one and ended... more
