I would buy big tops that could fit over my middle but I always was so self consious. My husband never complained but we started discussing the possibilty of a tummy tuck.

I have two children, a 19 year old and a 14 year old. I told my husband this is something I wanted to do and he's been very supportive.

While most women get a "kangaroo pouch" after having children, I developed... more

I am a little nervous about the results because the PS... more
