I am a 38 year old mom of 3. Ages 8,9 and 16. I have never had a flat tummy even at my smallest I always had a little pooch I always wore high waisted bathing suit bottoms. I am 5'4 and 170lbs. I run an exercise daily. I have lost 50 pounds in the last year from everywhere but my tummy and breast. I have a hernia that is causing pain upon abdominal exercise so since I need to get that fixed I figured I would take the plunge and have a TT as well. If all goes well I will follow up with a breast reduction and lift hopefully in the next year. Can't wait to share my experience and hear about everyone else's journey!

I have poured over everyones stories and bought all the items people suggested. I think i am as ready as I can be. I am sure I have forgotten something but at least my husband took the next week off so he can hopefully help me through the worst. Dont we all just wish we could flash forward to summer with our new bikini bodies!
Good luck to everyone and I will be sure to post pictures of my progress. See you on the flat side :)

I have gotten a horrible cold this week and with it a dreaded cough! I told my mom I'm afraid ill get pneumonia because I'm so afraid to cough and can't clear out my chest.
Other than that I'm feeling good. Tried to run some errands today (mom drove) was out about 2 hours and came home exhausted. Getting ready for my daughters 1st of 2 birthday parties this weekend. I think I have everything set and I have friends to set everything up so hopefully I just will have to stand around and take pictures :) I'm off all meds except Advil. I seem to need that every 6-7 hours. Tummy feels almost like when I was pregnant having contractions. Also I'm still dealing with swell hell but trying not to let that get me down. Going to look into some supplements for that and for muscle repair and nerve healing. I'll let you know what I end up with.
Just shy of 6 weeks PO. Finally turned a corner...
