I have had three cute sons and have come to the realization that I have ZERO elasticity in my stomach region. It is shocking to see that I have the exact same mid section that "severe weight loss" people have! It's crazy! I was 210 in April '14 when I gave birth to my youngest son. At 5'2" that... READ MORE

Over the last 9 years or so I have changed my lifestyle completely and have lost 145 lbs from my heaviest (I could have weighed more at some time but honestly never used to weigh myself because I didn't want to know how bad it was).

I had gastric bypass in 2010 and exercised everyday. I have lost 145 lbs and kept it off for 2 years as of date. But I could not get rid of that fatty part above my vagina.

I had Gastric Bypass in 2003 at the age of 23. I lost over 120 lbs or so. I was left with a lot of loose skin but by the time I was able to get the skin removed I had lost my insurance. So I waited. And soon life became too hectic to even think about getting it done. I was already a mom of... READ MORE

This surgery has changed my life so much. I'm 5'0 and before having children weighted 95 lbs. Ten years, three kids and much added weight later, my body was a nightmare. I hated the thought of my husband seeing me naked. I hated seeing myself in the mirror even with clothes on. I'm only two... READ MORE
