The Countdown Has Begun - Aventura, FL

At this point I'm pretty excited and literally...

At this point I'm pretty excited and literally have a day to day countdown going on. Pretty grateful this site exists. It helps you get prepared for the expected and unexpected. Definitely a lot of supporters who too are unhappy with their current shape so they understand your desire more than your friends and family. From the site I've gotten a pretty detailed list of items to purchase. Although my sx isn't scheduled until August I've opted to buy everything now to alleviate all the last minute costs. Next week I'm going to book a room and get that out the way just in case it goes up since I'm will be there during a holiday.

Pre Op Exam Completed

So today I completed my pre op clearance: CBC, PT, PTT, HCG URINE, UA C & S, CMP, HIV & EKG. Excited because I'm less than ninety days away. I go back to the doctor June 12th to pick up my results. I just signed up to be GNC member so I can get all my vitamins on a discount rate. I'm going to get on my vitamin regimen at least 45 days prior (7/21) to sx. I plan on buying all my needed products in increments. Through a collection of members of RS I have found a couple of cool sites for fajas and squeems. Thanks BBL sistahs!! I will post my complete lists tomorrow.

Dr. Salama Pre Op Cleared...BBL SX 8/26/13

So I am all cleared to go!!! 72 days until the BIG date. I have booked my stay at the Candlewood Suites for about $80 a day which includes a double bed suite, full kitchen, laundry room, Wi-Fi, pets accepted, complimentary airport shuttle, & a small cupboard store. Plane tickets have been purchased. My mom is accommodating me during this stay and a couple of my friends are flying down to support as well. I'm pretty sure they are going to party too as its Labor Day weekend in Miami!

Thirty Days Pre Op!!!

L sisters I felt like I was way ahead of the game. Honestly the only thing that was actually news to me is having body piercings that need to be removed and of course getting my prescriptions filled.

So as of earlier this month, I have been taking my Vitamin C with B Complex (1000 mg) and Iron (65 mg), which is 325 mg Ferrous Sulfate daily.

My current stats: 31, no kids, first time surgery, 150 lbs., 5'6, 38-31-40.

Nancy said I can gain more weight if wanted but my current weight keeps fluctuating. I never thought gaining weight could be so much of a challenge. I think it maybe stress from work because this is our peak season and I'm doubling my work load since I will be taking at least two weeks off. My normal weight is about 125-130. Most of my weight goes to my breast and stomach. Gaining all this weight has made me go from a C cup to a DD...geez.

I haven't bought any post op clothes yet. I decided to wait until next weekend during tax-free weekend in Florida. This way I can get a decent bargain on clothes I may never wear again with no tax!

Package received

I received my package sometime last week but of course already having very detailed BBL sisters I felt like I was way ahead of the game.

27 Days PO

Finally a before and after pic! Head back to work Monday. This should be exciting...not. I'm sure I'm going to receive a lot of questions and have a thousand & one emails to reply to. I haven't sat yet, not even attempted on the bobby pillow outside of massages so this will be a long typical Monday for me. On the bright side I'm happy I never called into work so I had the 160 hours to give in sick time.
