37 Yrs Old Mom, Wanted to Get Her Sexy Back - Dominican Republic, DO

So I have been stalking this site for a while...

So I have been stalking this site for a while researching doctors and reading everyone posts. It has been very informative. I really want to get this procedure done but I am very scared and nervous. My husband is behind me 100% he says if this is what I want to do then do it. But he is fine if I don't. My mom is totally against it but that doesn't bother me. I have already received a quote from Dr. Lima in DR and Dr. Robles. I has been hell trying to get in contact with Duran and Baez. Does anyone has any ideas how to get in touch with them. I like Baez's work and I am really considering going with Baez but I need quote it is killing me. Dr. Lima's quote was great $4800 for Lipo, TT, BBL,and BA the RH for 12 days $960 with 3 meals a day. I have a friend that recently went to Dr. Lima and her results are amazing. I'm still up in the air if I really want or need a TT, don't want the scar and I am nervous about getting part of me cut off. Really need my shape back that I had before three kids and married mommy life. I was 135lbs before I started having kids. At my heaviest I was 229lbs. Been trying for years to loose the weight but nothing is working can't get under 200lbs. At the beginning of March 2014 I weight myself and I was at 222lbs I broke down and started crying. I cut back more on my eating change the way once again what I eat and how it is prepared I am now 205lbs but I don't see a difference when I look in the mirror.

I found that sending messages to the Doctors in Spanish gets you a quicker response than English. I have been corresponding in Spanish and will continue to do so.

So stressed out today. Wish I could get my sx now. But I know I would like my results more when I lose some more weight. Just want it done and over with so I can feel better about my body.changing eating habits and making this lifestyle change is hard but I am doing it. Think I might have to wait until Feb-April 2015 for the surgery for best results ugg!

Quotes

So I decided to keep looking and researching other doctors, now waiting on a quote from Dr. Almonte. I read somewhere that she did really great work with big girls. I am still working out everyday trying to get some more weight off. And also I have started to eat more food to build up my iron. I see you have to have at least a 13 for surgery. I have an iron deficiency and I don't want to have to get a blood transfusion. Liver and liver mush works wonders as well as taking an iron supplement.

Places to stay

Looking for a resort to stay at, not sure I want to stay at a RH. The only RH I do like is Janet's RH

Update

So I am excited I have went down from a size 18 to a size 14. Still can't see it in the mirror but my 18 are big. I went shopping the other day and tried on a size 18 it was to big then tried a 16 too big and to my surprise size 14 fit. This is a store that I purchase mostly all my clothes so I know it wasn't just some fluke. But I did go into others stores and the same thing.
On another note I have an appointment with my doctor this Friday, going to get a full physical from head to toe to make sure I am able to get the sx. Been having some pain in my chest and I also need to regulate my iron level. Wish me luck. If she says I'm all good I will be setting my date for March 2015. Still undecided of who will do my sx but it is really narrowed down to Dr. Louis Lima or Dr. Fatima Almonte.
