SLOWLY GETTING THERE!!!!!

I am a mother of five beautiful children. My oldest will be 18 in March and my youngest will be 1 in March. I gained between 35-45 pounds with each pregnancy. I am down to 173 pounds now but I am only 5'1. I've tried excercising and dieting, but can't get the results I want. I had 3 c-sections and 2 vaginal births. My body is screaming "HELP"!! I have the very droopy breasts and I am wearing a size 38DD bra and it's probably the wrong size. My stomach hangs over my underwears. It's just awful. I have been wanting a mommy makeover for years now. But I was always scared. I have now decided that it is time. My surgery is scheduled for May and I am so excited. I joined a gym to prepare myself for the surgery. I want to make sure I am strong and healthy for the big day. Finding this site has given me the push I need. I am not sure right now if my insurance will cover the breast reduction. I am still waiting to hear from them. So My cost might go up, but hopefully not.

I can't wait...so excited.

Thanks, Angiemcc. Sometimes I get lazy and don't want to go to the gym, but when I think about all the "after" pictures I've seen here on this site, I jump out of bed at 5:30 AM and go to the gym before I go to work.

Congratulations on your decision. That's very exciting! Good for you for going to the gym. The stronger you can be and the more weight you can lose, the better your results and easier recovery will be. Go girl, go!

Hi!!!! Hope everyone is well. Had a post op appointment yesterday. Everything, but my left breast looked good. PS said I had a seroma. I had to go back today to the operating room. Put under for about 1 hour so he can clean it out and drain put in on my left boob now. My left drain on belly is out. still have drain on right side, but I feel sooooo much better. actually straightened out a little bit today. Happy healing. I am tired and gonna take a nap now.
