No progress on my weigh lose
Reserved my date.
So imma start again to focus on my diet i need to lose this wieght before you know it february is here and im still a fatty :( lol I have lost a inch all around so not all is bad.

Hand full of strawberries,cranberries,pineapple
Some honey. It's red still taste the beet but its not that bad.
Drunk plenty of water and if I was still hungry I ate a hard boiled egg as a snack. We'll see how it goes.
On another note on Christmas Day my husband bought the airline ticket. On Thursday went to order our passports we only was able to order his and my daughters they won't accept my birth certificate because it was laminate. So I was born in Bronx, ny I live in ct so I went online and order it should be receiving it tomorrow crossing my fingers as soon as I receive it will order my passport the turn around is about 2 weeks so I should be ok. Put my deposit for my massages went with Gianna Colombo western union her $100.00 deposit. Oh forgot to mention when my husband bought the tickets also paid for a hotel. We decided to go to hotel vs a rh because we are traveling with my daughter and although my daughter is not a crier she really is a happy baby but We didn't want to bother anybody in their recovery.
Now focusing on getting everything we need and continuing to follow by diet. Just want to have my iron level high so I'm able to get all I want done.
So juicing for breakfast and lunch
My vitamins. B complex, vitamin c , 2 folic acid, iron.
Well keep you posted on how it goes. I'm so excited this is all I think and talk about.
I'm beyond myself I'm a mess over the place.
So today I got the day off do to the snow storm. (I'm in ct) I'm chilling in bed with my daughter watching the Mickey Mouse club house and I get an email from Yily confirming my date and that she will be in contact with me a few days before the surgery and should I have any questions from here to then to email here. Which I already knew because Gianna Colombo (masseuse) had already verified for me Yily assistant had a bbl a mth ago and she is doing her massages and had already verified for me. But to receive the email was great.
So just so you ladies know because I know when I first started doing this research I wanted to know what us the true cost of these procedures I don't have all the totals yet but I'm already around $8500 it's a little high then some due to extra expenses my husband and daughter are going with me so that's not what some will have ill give you the break down for what I have so far.

I have already started packing. Tic toc tic toc.
I did say I'm all over the place I have thought a lot of leaving my kids and husband a letter in case I don't make it out you never know and when I thought of what to write I got sad then when it came to my daughter she is turning 1 on the 7th and had plenty to see but then thought she won't even remember me I would not even be a memory to her as my boys have plenty to remember me. So I decided to make videos for them so they can see me and hear my voice and remember. I already started recording. I hope they don't ever have to view them. That when I go I'm an old wrinkled up lady in her 90's lol at least 80.
Sorry that its so long just to much on my mind and I needed to let some out. If you girls have any questions please feel free to contact me. Best of luck to the ones planning. Prayers to the ladies going this month may all go well,get the bodies you wish for and have a speeding recovery.
Til next time girls.
Holy Molly !!!
On another note my husband truly if god's gift to me. He is so supportive and positive with everything. He is excited for me.
43 days as time gets closer ill be posting more ill try to keep it short it's just hard to keep all these thoughts and emotion in.
Posting a picture of my back side again look at your own risk.
Prayers going out to all the ladies having surgery this week and for a speedy recovery.
So still at 204 ibs at this point ill be hope to at least be below 200 for sx. I have a lot done as far as for the sx just waiting. I'm on over drive at work want to leave everything done before I leave to dr I hate people doing my work no matter how good they are it's just not good enough.
I spoke with my husband today about the what if ?? (I don't make it out) he didn't like the conversation but I need him to know my feelings and thoughts. Specially that our daughter is only 1. And for my boys as well although they are not his they are her brothers. Just want to leave everything clear and squared away you never know and wouldn't want him to be lost. Updated on all the insurance policies ,acct # , etc...
So theres 4 of my friends and my sister waiting for me to come back from sx and see my results so they can go next.
Ladies Dra Yily is back. Prays to all the sisters going this month and going to the other dr.s as well may they all have safe trips and the quickest recovery. God bless everyone.
29 Days and counting !!!!
Ladies want to give you advise PLEASE PLEASE do your reseach when selecting a RH sometimes cheaper is not better or more is not better. contact people that have been there and do alot of reseach some RH has had bad reviews in the past but have up they game and are better now others not so much. also keep in mind that after surgery you really need to take care of yourself from virus, infection, germs period. Im taking disinfected spray(lysol) and wipes and i will be cleaning my hotel room once i get there im not trying to risk anything. sheets need to be clean daily. germ are every where and its hard to contain it but the more cautious you are the better the chance of not catching anything. just saying when you are given the ok to shower please boil the water before using or use bottled water unless the water is filtered where you are staying at. Just please be careful and follow all you aftercare instruction take your shots for blood clots that is serious ladies you dont want to make it out of surgery to then go out do to a blood clot.
As excited as I am, I'm also nervous with regards to my results you just dont know. but its a gamble im willing to take.
Im almost done packing ,need a few more things. ordered the chux. getting my blood work done this week to see way my Iron is at. crossing fingers.then is to wait from Feb 18 to get here YIKES !!!!
till next time, GOD BLESS XOXO
A few wish pic for you ladies.
Jan is almost gone and feb is coming
Ladies remember you need a passport if traveling to dr. Apply for it at least 6 to 8 weeks prior to traveling. I got mine in 2 weeks but it was not as busy right now but it's going to get crazy so please take the time apply with time and also make sure if you have your passports already that its not going to or about expire soon.
So Yily posted on Facebook that she is working hard on getting a system going to respond to emails quicker. Also on her empire of Barbie's Yily page on facebook she started to posted before and after of her past clients.
Regarding my weight I'm between 202 and 203 really want to be below 200 for surgery. Keep eating right just with the stress it hold to not give in to the cravings.
So I was thinking of opting out of buying Yily insurance that she offers because I saw lots of ladies spending money for treatment after surgery like blood transfusion (250) electric shock therpy etc. her insurance is $150.00 and it would cover all of that so I'm going to get it if I don't need it all well but even if I need a blood transfusion ill be saving money and god forbid anything else goes wrong ill be cover.
Another hot topic this week was getting burns from the Fajas or pads. It's important to wear a white beater, tank top or t shirts between your skin ,the Fajas and pads. You skin is very sensitive after lipo.
God help me I don't know how to contain all these emotions. My friends and I going to have dinner and have a girls night out to say good bye to fatty me and if anything happens we had our time before I leave.
Ok until tomorrow hope to know my hemoglobin levels will keep you posted. XOXO
Had my husband check out the cable mobile. You log in to your AT&T acct and watch live stream tv on your phone or tablet, it worked. Ill be watching my shows in DR.
Girls I don't want to scare nobody but I can't stressed enough to please be careful with your after care. Make sure who ever is working on you, attending you, anything touching have them wash they hands and wear gloves. Don't be afraid to tell them to its your health and life on the line.
There has been a lot of talk about exchanging your US dollars to DR pesos its cheaper if you order it from your bank rather then in the airport or over there. Don't change to much maybe about 100 to 150. Ill be doing about 100.
3 weeks to go. I'm going to be re made re born how ever you want to say it. I'm going in fatty sloppy blob with a curtain coming back curvy flat curtainless.
I'm bringing sexy back....leaving all the fat behind....give to me Yily (jt voice ). Lol sorry feeling a little silly.
I'm staying prayed up. And stay praying for all you ladies in the planning stages or recovery stages maygod be the center of everything. God bless xoxo.
Start my 20 days count down whoot whoot.
Checkout judy79 just had her sx done. Show her some love.
For those of you trying to contact dr. Yily
What's app. (829)469-6102
Gianna Colombo (masseuse) whats app (829)445-0505
Taxi bambino whats app (809)780-9635
So today I read that its very important to have your lymphatic massages after surgery even pass the first ten they recommend. You should try if you can't afford it at the very least once week. But for best results twice a week then once a week for two months twice a month for the next 5 to 6 months. This will help with the swelling decrease, contouring , tt scar tissue repair. Try to find a lymphatic masseuse near you and budget that in for your recovery.
Dominican tourist card.
When you enter DR you will need a tourist card its cost is $10 you have to have a 10 dollar bill not a 20,50,100. It has to be a $10 bill for each passenger and this is in the airport. Or to save time you can purchase it online at
Ok ladies good luck. It's late have church 1st thing tomorrow morning praying for all the sister in recovery and the ones going in this month and for the ones planning.may everything be a success. God bless xoxo
7 days and ill be in DR Whoot Whoot !!!!!!!
so that got me doubting my decision mind you this is not dr yily fault, its the clinic and all the drs there overwhelmed with patients. since i was scared starting looking for a second dr in different clinic and not as busy i want to have all my procedures done not be disappointed because she is rushing to try to get everyone in. so i reached out to dr almonte she quoted me $5700
and that included all the pre op testing 2 nights at the clinic tt bbl lipo breast lift . and 10days rh. she was really good in replying quickly. with out the rh 4850.00
i also got a quote from dr lima $4800 for tt lipo bbl ba/lift
the problem with dr lima really no info on him to do reach on and the pictures i saw didn't impressed me.
and dr almonte i would be settling just because she is not as busy and has the time to do a good job and take care of you only does 3 patients a day at the mot which is good. her results are more natural. but again it didn't wow me.
ladies dont get me wrong i love me dr yily and her results my heart is with her. but due to the rumors i was really second guessing myself. and even though the other quotes were cheaper, cheaper is not always better. so after review and researching i decided to stick with my heart i want Yily i love her work and results i dont want to go and yes play it safe but still be disappointed with my results for going to someone else.
i am booked and confirmed therefore going with what i want and if once i get there i feel weird then i will go else but until then im TEAM YILY !!!!!!!
so now that i was out of the cloud because i was really torn. i find out that my husband wouldnt be able to travel with me he went to a follow up appointment today from his shoulder surgery and his dr returned him to work as of next monday (hello that the nite we are traveling to DR) he tried to ask the dr to change it he was not having. so my husband calls me at work to give me the bad news he was so pissed and was going crazy looking for someone to go with me. i felt sick to my stomach, like hot air coming out of my ears all day. but it is what it is i have to woman up and go by myself. Well god is good the dr changes the date gave him an extra week so now praying that his job will give him the 2nd week as a vacation but if not he can return a week early, at least he can be with me the 1st week when i need him the most.
NOW IM EXCITED CANT WAIT TO GET YILYIFED.
Oh on another note new rules for ciplia is that if you are have a tt you are to stay 2 nights not sure if thats just for cabrals patients all everyone in general. also for does going on their own needs to have a non surgery companion or hire a nurse to attend to them since the nurses on staff are overwhelmed and patient care is poor.
hopefully everything goes well. good luck ladies
GOD BLESS XOXO
Well just wanted to date real quick leaving Monday night to DR. Arrive there Tuesday morning at 330am. And the real journey begins. I promise I will take lots of pictures and keep ya'll updated as much as I can i know maybe the first night after surgery I may not be up to it but ill try.
Im leaving everything in gods hands. God bless XOXO
2 days Sooo Excited!!!!
I'm completely packed ready to go. Since I'm going with my husband and princess I have 4 luggages (1 big just full of supplies 1 small for me and my daughter clothes a duffle bag for my husband and another duffle bag with snacks and diapers for my daughter ) we also bought the filter system where it comes with 4 bottles and it filters them at the same time with was 15 dollars at walmart figured just in case we don't make it out to buy bottles at least we make the baby milk. Just in case because we do plan to buy water.
I'm so excited I really can't think of nothing else but this surgery. I'm hoping to have a fast recovery and not be a baby I don't know I had a c section I was ok within 2 days but this is a lot more.
I'm going to work early tomorrow try to finish everything before I leave. That's going to be so hard, to focus.
I will post more pre op pic not that, that's what ya'll want to see. And I will take lots of pictures of everything.
Please keep praying for everyone that is going , having and has had sx. Prayer is a powerful thing and we all need it. God bless all of you. XOXO
Ok in less then 24 hrs I will be in DR.
Ok talk to ya'll later I will be posting lots of pictures for ya'll. Good bless xoxo
follow up appt today.
On another note this process really takes a toll on you. I was depressed crying and everything it's a lot to deal with soreness,stiffness,uncomfortable,medicine,shots,pain,weakness,etc
Please prepare mentally because we all get everything we need we figure it's going to hurt but mentally I was not ready.
So I was commenting on fb how I got my massage and hoe great I felt and that I was able to hook it on the 2nd hook. So guess who comments on my post. Dra Yily de los santos so state not to hook my faja so tight do to the tt. I had some concerns regarding my results so I chatted with her and she answered everything asked to send her pictures I did she said everything look good. I told her I thought I ruined her work she started laughing and said no don't worry your going to be beautiful. I was so happy that she took the time to comment and chat with me. Proves she cares.
Prayers for the ladies going in, planning and recovery.
God bless xoxo
Yesterday was 2 weeks.
I'll start my massages Tuesday can't wait.
Continue to pray for the ladies going in , in recovery and planning. May god bless ya'll. xoxo
Lymph drainage massages
Healing After Surgery
According to MassageTherapy.com, lymph drainage massages can help with healing after surgery. This type of massage regenerates tissues to reduce scarring at surgical incision sites. Lymph drainage massages also reduce swelling and detoxify the body, according to the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators. The alliance's website states that lymph drainage massages help speed regeneration of tissues and cells.

i had wrote all update last night and i dont know what happened that it didnt save. will re write tonight.
Sorry I been MIA
I have lost 7 inches off my waist and lost a total of 18 pounds so far. Still very swollen although a lot has gone down. I can't stress enough how important are the massages for your recovery.
My results I so love my tummy ,back and waist. My bbl well it looks like the same but bigger wider and still flat but when in clothes it looks good and I'm not complaining I slept on it for like 3 weeks because of the tt so it's my fault and over all I love it. Plus I'm hoping that it will still round off. As soon as I can going to hit the gym do squirts and tone up.
Ladies planning please try to have someone go with you , prepare your body be healthy and take care of yourself after. Stay praying. Good luck and god bless xoxo
For the ladies that are on the fence with this surgery I would recommend to go for it but do your research be health and do your after care. Good luck ladies god bless.
11 weeks yesterday
I feel liquid in my back from the swollen still but im much better. Each day that goes by I'm loving my results still not 100 % still not confident like others but little by little I'll feel I got my sey back lol.
It's late me going nite mite. God bless ladies. Xoxo
I have no complaints what so ever. She was very sweet ,open , straight forward with me. She checked on me the next day and hit me up on Fb to see how I was doing. Yes she is very busy but she made time to follow up with me short but to the point. I will recommend her to everybody. My sisters and friends are already planning to go to her. Oh I forgot and my husband wants to go to her and for me to do round 2 for my boobies. She takes pride in her work. She doesn't do to much at once if she can do a good job and if it's not safe. Safety is first.
