After 25 years as an obese child and adult, I got up and did something about it. I exercised and dieted my way from 300 pounds to 179. I'm just over 5"6 and wear a size 12. All of those years of slugging around extra weight gave me the boobs of a 60 year old and two rolls of tummy skin that are impossible to diet away. My sweet boyfriend helped me embrace the thought of plastic surgery and here we are; one week away from a mastopexy and abdominoplasty. I tell my Sweet that the thing I look forward to the most is feeling like a normal person. No crossing my fingers that there will be extra room in my blouses to accomodate side boob, nor hoping that tights don't make me look like I'm concealing a 5 month pregnancy. There is so much to look forward to! :)

Thank you to all who have given me well wishes. Your words lift my heart.
Today I picked up my little things for recovery (antibiotic, gauze, hydrogen peroxide, groceries, etc.) and am making final organizations around the house. Lists give me a sense of control and peace. :) I had a recommendation of finding an old fashioned girdle to wear after surgery. Any tummy tuck alumni who wore something like this? The hospital will provide something to wear but one person who had been through the surgery said she bought the best old time girdle and loved the support it gave. Also, any other advice on the breast lift of tummy tuck recovery would be appreciated!
We're almost there. Tonight is Wednesday. I'm...

Tomorrow I'll leave work a little early, say goodbye to mom and the pups and then off to Dallas. It's about a two hour drive. David is as cool as a cucumber. I'm good. Just chatty. :) I look forward to waking up Friday afternoon and starting the road to recovery.
Blessings to all!

My Doctor: William M. Carpenter, MD
I chose Dr. Carpenter based on the recommendation of a friend. She is a nurse who worked in the plastic surgery recovery and had met Dr. Carpenter and had viewed "his work" first hand.
