I am getting married in Cabo San Lucus in late August. I wan to be bikini ready and show off my new abs. Prior to pregnancy in 2009 I had a defined stomach and maintained a weight 155lbs. Since the birth of my daughter I'm still around 168 which is ok given my height 5'10. I had limited loose skin but experience lumps and unevenness in my lower abs. My doctor went below my pubic line so I'm praying that my scar is hardly visible. I will post some pictures from before.

Swelling has gone down a lot. Starting to see the results.

Weight Loss

So, I am not a big water drinker unless I'm working out. So it's been pretty much me and sprite the last few weeks! With any weight gain I'm always discouraged so I make poor eating choices. Prior to surgery 171. I blew up to 179 overnight! I retain water quickly and swelling was pretty apparent. I checked last night because i was sweating bad it was 173 and this morning 171.I lost 10lbs almost overnight go figure! The weight will come off towards the 3 week mark!

3 week post op

Added pictures at 3 weeks. Started working out and started sit ups. Feel great! Scar looks better in person.

1 month

Feeling great and very satisfied with results. I've noticed a few things including distribution in swelling. I cant wear anything that fits snug around my waist or it will make my stomach look deformed. I have to maintain the binder to keep the flatness. I hope this will eventually go away. I cant wear jeans or work out tights. Does anyone have an idea of what I'm talking about? I'm not swelling bad at all I wonder if its fluid and it will go away with time.

2 month update! 6 pack abs in the works!

Coming Soon

Very happy with overall results. Exceeded my expectations!
