My Journey to a New and Improved ME - Dominican Republic, DO

First in foremost I would like to say that I will...

First in foremost I would like to say that I will not tolerate any negativity on my review im here 2 gain knowledge understanding and hopefully when im done i can encourage someone now thats out the way
Im a 30 yr old mother of 2 beautiful girls my oldest is 12 and my youngest is 23 months. I cant truly blame them for my body being the way it is but they damn sure didnt help. I have always been tall and big with no butt after having my second childI lost all the weight I gained during my pregnancy and than some but after 4 months having my baby I had 2 get my gall bladder removed and from tht moment on the weight gain began n all the weight went to my stomach. When i was younger I always use2 make jokes tht I would take the fat from my gut n put it n my butt not knowing tht was possible...I have been speaking 2 my doctor since the mid of last yr sent her picks I just wanted my stomach n butt done she emailed me back with everything I needed 2 get done 2 have fantastic results so I will be having a tummy tuck lipo on my back & arms and fat transfer 2 my butt Im going 2 DR not just because its affordable but the way they sculpture a body is just amazing My doctor will be Robles I love her work and our communication is amazing especially with heraassistant Laura ok so this is it for now any questions advice I will definitely appreciate it have a wonderful and blessed day

Thoughts...

Hey Loves hope all is well with u...today I went to church as always it was fantastic, I always battled if this was against God but I realized tht im not changing who I am he didnt make me with this extra baggage thts considered 2 b my stomach I so happen 2 pick it up along this journey called life. I have lived my life for my kids n my family this is the first thing tht im doing 4 myself besides my masters degree but tht doesn't count lol but I came 2 the conclusion tht im doing nothing wrong and I will go forward with this because it will make me a better me some ppl may not understand but its not up 2 them....I failed 2 mention tht I am 264lbs I must lose weight prior 2 the procedure I want 2 b 200lbs im aiming 2 have surgery in july so this is goin 2 b a journey I have been eating healthy counting calories and exercising going n2 my second week im not dieting I want 2 change my life style...I spoke 2 laura thru
Whatsapp she messaged me Good morning no business talk just checking on me she reached out 2 me 3 times thisweek regardless of her reasons its a great feeling well im hitting the sac back 2 business tomorrow

Whts a Girl 2 do....

Hey loves I hope all is well this week I started my herbalife tryna shed these pounds I want 2 try the shakes for 3months and see how it goes ive been 2 the gym 4 times this week so im praying I see some type of results soon...so today a few of my family members told me they think I should wait 2 have surgery. ..I listened but the only thing tht will stopme is this weight and if I felt like something was goin 2 terribly go wrong n I do not feel tht way whatsoever its now or never 4 me n I choice now!!! Has any other big n sexy ladies have a tummy tuck I see a few but not many plz put some in put thx well I pray whoever is reading this has a wonderful and blessed week....p.s im thinking of posting pics but not confident enough not yet

A Few lbs Lighter

I told myself I wouldn't weigh myself often but go based on how I felt with clothes on or n general because often times the scale can discouraged u but I wanted 2 kno where I am so today after being serious for 2 weeks I have lost......8lbs not a huge number but im extremely happy tht I lost something im excited if I keep this up I kno I will c great results so 2 my loves tht r trying 2 lose b encourage n keep ur eyes on da prize!!!

Deposit

I paid my deposit through Western Union its official no turning back now im scheduled for July 10th 2014 received an email confirmation from Laura so excited but anxious so many feelings this is really happening im n disbelief....any other ladies scheduled around my time????

4lbs lighter

Yaaaay im excited lost some more lbs makes a totally of 12 lbs n 3 weeks I cant wait 2 b at my goal weight I want the best results possible...OAN im so addicted 2 this site I loved it b4 now tht its actually happening 4 me it feels funnybut great overall

Traveling by myself

So my friend was suppose 2 come wit me she was getting a tummy tuck as well but she told me today shes not gonna b able 2 go i always think of the possibilities of things not goin as planned so i was prepared 4 da news im still a lil disappointed but life goes on n i was doin this 4 me and not 4 nobody else things happen 4 reasons.....

expenses?????

Any one have an idea on how much extra cash I should bring with me im debating on whts an appropriate amount

guilty

I've been feeling a little selfish for spending tht much money on myself its not taking away from my family but theres so much I can do with the money...I keep telling myself I deserve this which is true ugggghhh

M.I.A

Sorry I've been MIA feb is a busy month 4 me also my buddy is no longer going with me its cool though just dont like da fact I will b traveling by myself I wanted someone I could experience this with but God doesn't make any mistakes....

Tickettssssss!!!!

I just purchased my tickets 2 DR im super excited this is so real....im traveling with jet blue I paid an extra $35 for more rm on my flight back from DR im happy they offer tht cause I kno once Robles is done me imma need all da rm I could get....ok so now its time 4 packing any suggestions I have no clue

RUMORS

I have read a few comments n regards 2 cecip (the hospital tht Dr Robles works out of) being shut down....according to Dr Robles herself tht is false not true...I could of went along with wht was being said but I used the same outlet tht I used 2 communicate with her all this time andasked her....my point is stop spreading or speaking things tht r not factual I dont about everyone up here but 4 me this is not just some simple task 2 fly in a foreign country 2 have surgery n b away from my children n family 4 a long period of time...but I trust God and im having faith tht all will b well but it would b more helpful than 2 hear rumors if its facts than I can deal wit tht but anything else plz keep 2 urself....

update

Hey loves nothing much has changed on this end...I did my passport last week Friday so I'm happy that is n motion. I also told my doc about my procedure but I left out the actually place I told her Miami lol but nevertheless she told me 2 go 4 it said that I'm a perfect candidate 4 it especially since I shed some lbs. Its a great feeling having her support just in case I need her...Im getting excited again lol this journey is really a rollercoaster can't wait till its over...OK loves until next time

excited

Originally I was goin 2 DR with my child hood friend n unfortunately she was u n able 2 go but today she gave her deposit n will b booking her flight I'm so excited tht she is able 2 go with me I'm happy 4 her she deserves this so now I'm no longer alone on this journey

happpppyyyy

My friend just booked her flight so we will b leaving 2gether n having surgery da same time....God is so good...i was n still am ready 2 do this alone but it's awesome tht I'm not...I'm still tryna lose weight i want 2 lose 20 more lbs and i will b extremely happy so tht is my goal until my date...

  • Reply
My bf is coming with me, and we'll be staying in a motel. I know some RH allow men, but he said he would feel awkward about staying there. I don't know how that's going to play out as far as doctor visits, etc, so we'll see.
  • Reply
Ok love i totally understand with it being awkward at the RH there are services provided for transportation n r u thinking of hiring a nurse or Ur be is goin 2 help
  • Reply
Yes, he's coming to help me, but if it's too much for him, I'll see if Dr. Robles can recommend a nurse. But I think he'll be alright, probably just bored though!

Hey I love ur review too :-) July gonna be here soon :-) Make sure your drinking ur water :-) I have been battleing the money thing too.my husband said" if u can find anything in this house we need then dont get the sx,as he proceeded to point to all the stuff and experiences our children enjoy. A great investment is us,sometimes as mommies we forget.

One step closer. I know for me when I bought my ticket I was like, no turning back now! As far as packing, I'm not getting a bbl, but I've read you'll need adult diapers, chux, maxi pads (not thin maxi), wipes, hibiclens, arnica, bromelian (not sure of spelling), I think those 2 things are for lipo bruising, idk. There are plenty of Robles' girls on here with lists! xoxo

Yes no turning back...thx love I will search
