January is right around the corner!!! (Waiting since June)... #TeamSalama 1/17/2013

Well after STALKING all these beautiful women here...

Well after STALKING all these beautiful women here. I decided to through with the BBL surgery. Reasons why I choose Dr.Samala was because his work reminds me of the plastic surgeons in Dominican Rep. Small Barbie waist with a big self aka my dream body! I'm too afraid to go to DR so I rather get it done here in the states. Can't wait to have Salama work his magic on me!! :)

I really wish my surgery date was sooner because...

I really wish my surgery date was sooner because all I do is think about it! Lol I am flying out to Miami, does anyone have any recommendations on what I should bring??? I know of a few thing but what are like the MOST important. Also how can I work out on my thighs legs n arms without losing weight or fat?! I'm 5'2 140 pounds. I'm very small and petite, so I'm looking to tone up my arms and lower half. I'm only getting my stomach, back and flanks lipped so I would like to firm up whats not being done.

Uuuuuugh... I'm leaving to Miami for vacation and...

Uuuuuugh... I'm leaving to Miami for vacation and feel so gross about myself! And seeing all them
fit bodies on S.Beach isn't going to help.. Please God makes these months fly by! 0:)

Sooo I guess I haven't really told you guys much...

Sooo I guess I haven't really told you guys much about my self.. I'm 23 years old, no kids. Growing up I was always thick and had a bubble juicy butt. As I got into my 20's though I started gaining a lot of weight. At my heaviest I was 162 Lbs and a size 12 in dresses. I was devastated! So I starting eating right and hitting the gym and got down to 127. I was super skinny! Yeyyyy :D but noo booty :'( lol Sooo as I was feeling comfortable at 127-130 I starting slacking at the gym. THEN WINITER HIT! And I my weight went up to 140.. Though I liking my body more now then when I did at 162 I still don't have a killer ass or curves! So I plan on taking the easy way out this time and get the BBL surgery. I'm planing on losing like 5 pounds belter the SX so I can def get the results I want! :D

Sooooo I spoke to Nancy about my concerns on...

Sooooo I spoke to Nancy about my concerns on losing 10 lbs (I'm 140-143 now) and she gave me the go! Said that for my height (5'2 & 1/2) I can afford to lose 10 pounds. Usually weight between 130 - 133 which is where I felt most comfortable at. So I'm so happy that I can work out and eat right. I know that's going to contribute to a faster recover because my body will be fit and somewhat in shape which I read somewhere that's make a prefect candidate for liposuction. Ooooo man can wait for my new booty and abs!! =D

Helloooooo Ladies! Sorry I haven't done much...

Helloooooo Ladies! Sorry I haven't done much updating. I've been so caught up with going back to school and a new job.

Sooooo.. I just want to kinda update you ladies on my journey. I've been trying to lose weight now but I'm still at 140. I want to at least lose 5-8 pounds because I feel like my arms and my thighs are to somewhat big and I want to avoid looking funny after the sx. Tiny waist with big arms so do not mix! Lol However I still have time to get in shape before the sx so that's a very good thing.

Because I have been too busy to eat healthy and exercise, I have been doing something else to prepare for next January. I've been wearing my faja (aka garment). YESSSSSS, you read correctly. I've been wearing the garment that is use for after sx. I wear it every day, when I go to work, when I go to school, even when I go out at night. I have a strapless one I can rock with my dresses. I'm Dominican and one thing I'm use to is going to the hair salon and hearing all the women talk about their lipo stoires. And want I've learned from them is that it's not the lipo that sculpts your body after sx it's the faja. SOOOOO PLEASE LADIES, AS UNCOMFORTABLE AS IT MAYBE DO NOT TAKE OFF YOUR GARMENT! KEEP IT ON, YOUR RESULTS WILL ONLY BE
BETTER. The good thing about me wearing starting to wear it now is I'm getting use to the tight fit on my body. That shit is a bitch to get into but once it on I feel fabulous! My waist is small and my butt stands out. It's even starting to get to the point where days I don't have it on my body stills has the shape of the garment. WHICH IS A HUGE PLUS! ;)

My plan is hopefully since I'm not losing weight (at the moment) I can at least sculpt my body so when my time comes to get the sx my body already has that hourglass shape!

Jan is right around corner!!! I think I'm getting cold feet!!!! =\ I'm nervous about the pain!!!

heyyy girl just stopping by to say whats up ?? How are you love? I wanted to share with you i bought this faja very very good!, I started wearing it on Monday and giiiirlll! the stares are ridiculous i feel like i already got the bbl LOL. What i love about this Faja is its tight but comfortable, silky so you can wear a tight shirt or even tights and you won't see anything also the gluteus part is made of a lighter material so rarely any pressure to the butt which i think might be really good for the surgery ..Im going to post pics soon so you or any of the other ladies can see :-)) paid $80

Bbellabooty1 you funny with that umpalumpa comment. A lot of girls seem to gain weight by eating anything especially fattening food. Since I weigh 130 and am 5'5, I figured I would have to gain 10-15 lbs, and I was thinking about staying away from fast food spots and sticking to lots of tuna, chicken, peanut butter sandwiches and protein shakes. Because it is definitively going to affect recovery as well having cellulite becoming extremely visible after you get that big booty. I can also testify to being pressured to use fajas right after pregnancy. I am Colombian and it seems to be a big deal within the Spanish community. I used it after my baby turned 3 months. It ertainly picks up the rolls.

Hi giiirl!! Yes its the culture and thanks to Columbian fajas, columbian levanta culos, columbian jeans! :-)) we are obsessed lol. Your absolutely right about good weight gain but you named one of my weaknesses :( peanut butter!!!! aghhh even from the jar lol I'm guilty dont do it ;-). So yes the good fats (no saturated fats=cellulite, also coffee doesn't help cellulite either), good oils, good carb grains (oatmeal) and you cant ((ever)) have enough proteín!!!!! since (it helps build/restore muscles/tissues=healing..(lean meats/ fish) and beans beans beans!!! just don't go out that night haha :-/. Seriously,weight gain by eating anything and everything especially fatty greasy food, and sugars, processed foods.. prolongs healing and on the long run,.we want to look good, but also feel the way we look...:-)))

Yes Definitely!!!! sounds like i have a realself twin Lol your right about the salt ive heard que eso infla" since sodium absorbs/retains water meanwhile our bodies will need to get rid of the excesss fluids we already have from sx that will be drained so we dont want to add to it and risk having to much fluids/complucation. Of course only in DR....would anyone lipo + pastilitos Hah! Hmmmm can i have some chícharon de pollo on the side to!!! Lol ive already starting eating healthy ...girl im not trying to look like a ompalumpa Lol

OMG i forgot ONE MORE thing, i feel you about the Arm thing and wanting to be at a good weight because my night mare is to end up como una embuda!!
  • Reply
Omg you and I think a lot alike! Honestly I think for us being 5'2 weight between 130-135 is good enough. Just like you wrote on ur profile 4 little is about 8 pounds of fat so why gain more then you need too?!! I swear I reading some short girls wanting to go up 150+ I'm thinking to myself whyyyy?! Yes your ass is gonna be fat so are your face and arms! I think 135 is gonna be good for me... Oh and other tip! A month before the sx in not eating nothing with slat. I want to be soudimin free so I can have less swelling as possible. I got a friend who went to DR and got a lipo, tt and breast agu she told me she was so swollen that her back looked lil nortre dame! Smh I asked her what she was eating when she was out there. She said she was stuffing her face with pastillos -___- Hell no! I don't want to take longer than I have to go heal. So once I'm cleared for sx I'm making sure in not eating anything high in slat and im pretty sure then I'll drop the 5-8 pounds I've been lookin to lose

Thank you my love! Ja tu sades, Dominican be all their fajas! It's so true what your saying, my mom since I was 14 always to told me to wear a faja. She even warned me about wearing low rise jeans. That lose jeans give a muffin top (which she was right) lol. I started wearing the faja faithly when this girl I knew got the gastric bypass surgery done. This girl has wore a faja since she was 15 and never had any rolls on her back. After the sx she went from being 220 to 140 and let me tell you she looks amazing! She didnt need a tummy tuck like most women need after getting that done intend she looks like a freaking Barbie no lie!
