I have been wanting a tummy tuck for about twelve years. I have two boys, 18 years and 13 years old. They were both 9 lbs when born and I went slightly over 200 lbs when pregnant with them. I always lost the weight after pregnancy. But never felt just right because I've always had a pouch and stretch marks. The more I lost weight the more my skin would hang. Right now I am at my heaviest weight. But, I'm not gonna wait to lose it before my procedure. I know I will be able to lose weight after. For some reason I feel this is going to motivate me very much. After my surgery my goal will be my recovery and getting back to focusing on me and my fitness goals. I have not felt the same since I have gained all this weight. Right now I am very nervous. I have my post op appt scheduled for today. I have all my clothes ready to go. I just need to get a few things from the store. I am also going to rent a hospital bed. I plan on taking really good care of my self. Luckly my sisters have had tummy tucks before so they are helping me with all my questions and concerns. My husband and kids don't think I need this procedure. They think I just need to exercise. If only it were that easy. Right now I am trying to get as much rest as possible. Trying not to stress my self out on other things. Trying to get my household and work life in order all so I can have a good recovery. I'm so nervous and scared. Can't say I'm excited anymore. I was a few weeks ago. Maybe it will return soon. Time to wash the dishes and get ready for my post op appt at two pm. Wish me luch. Thank you
