Major Weightloss Now Time for the Home Stretch.... TT,BA, LIPO - Atlanta, GA

I am a single women, who isn't married and I don't...

I am a single women, who isn't married and I don't have children, but I did lose a small person over the past 2.5years - 80 pounds!!! I have loose skin on my tummy and flat breast. I was large most of my 20's. Now that I am in my 30's, I would like to have my 20 something body back. LOL. I am working to prep my body for the surgery, which is schedule for April 18th - 53 days away. I would like to be less than 140 before I go into surgery. So i have some work to do.
Congrats on that weight loss! I'm excited for you to see this transformation through. Please keep us posted as you get closer! What are your emotions right now? Nervous, excited...?

T-MINUS 30 days

I am 30 days out to having my "makeover". LOL so many thoughts are running through my mind. Just trying to stay positive and upbeat. My final payment is due on 3/21 and my pre-op is on 3/24. Right now i am just patiently waiting. So ready for the post -op healing and then the post op body!!! LOL :)

23 days out...

I had my pre-op yesterday and everything went well. Just ask the doctor a few questions about the procedures and what happens during recovery. Filled out all my RXs and it was $38 bucks for everything!!! I was worried it would be way more $$$. About to place my deposit to rent a recliner and my compression garments are in. I have to wear two at once (due to drain less tummy tuck)! That should be comfortable!! LOL Also surgery is paid in full!!!

But the one thing I am noticing is that my mood has been very blah. Like I was super excited about the surgery, but now I am kinda like whatever. As anyone else experience this?
Congratulations on your weight loss!! I've lost almost 100 pounds in a little over 2 years, thanks to the LapBand. You will be so happy and excited again after surgery! And every day of healing it gets better….it is ALL worth it! I have had a TT & breast reduction (14 months ago) then implants and medial thigh lift (11 days ago). I was obsessed and excited about the surgeries until the moment they knocked me out, but the whole experience really is an emotionally roller coaster. Hand in there, you will have your ups & downs but will be thrilled when all is done!

15 days to go

Not much to report. Feeling better about the surgery. Just need to get a few things from Walmart , rent my recliner, and go shopping. Kinda of calm about going under. I trust my doctor and the lord - so not really worried about anything morbid. Just want to come out of recovery without nausea. Also putting my dog up for a couple of days. Still working out and eating as best as i can. I could do a lot better tho. Any tips or suggestion for me while I wait for my sugery date?
Congratulations on a new you

Everything is healing and good. Lots of tightness and soreness. Saw my doctor on Monday and he said everything is healing nicely, Just have to wear my compression garments for 6 weeks. Drinking as much liquids as I can. I have been very very sleepy. i stop talking my heavy pain meds and switch to the light stuff, plus i am taking the muscle relaxant. i do get up every 3 hours and walk round the house as well. I have had a BM since post op day 3 as well. I will post pics a little later.
Congrats!!!
