Hello I am new here and would like to share my story and my journey. First off I am a 30 yrs old woman mother of two,ages 15 and 1. I lost my body at a very young age and self esteem. Fifteen years later I am ready to change my life. I have not had a bad life I do have a lot of confidence in myself its when my clothes are off i feel self conscious. I have gained a lot of weight in the past five years I am a stressful eater. I am currently 204 lbs( as of this morning). I am trying to get down to maybe 185 before surgery February 9, 2013. I have been eating healthy or sometimes nothing at all thanks to OxyElite Pro which is an appetite suppressant I work out and plan to stop smoking 01/03/2013 to prepare for surgery. O a month ago I was weighing about 222 I never went below 215 the last 5yrs.
I have been considering cosmetic sugery since lets see, 2006 b/c I have always had a pooch after my first child at 15 yrs old. I just knew that I would have another kid one day so I held off. I recently had a beautiful little girl she is one yrs old, so Im ready now. My friend had a TT, and Lipo in 2010 she went to DR and I must say I was very impressed. She has now healed and full of life. So I started doing my research again I have been researching for about 2 yrs now. I was going to go with her same PS but recently changed my mind. I consulted with him I started making plans then I kept reading reviews ( between MMH and RealSelf) I was on youtube watching girls journeys who went to DR and came across all these post about Dra, Yily. I began googling her name, going to her site( which is in Spanish) but you can have it translate it to english. When I saw her I thought man she is beautiful she would know exactly how I feel and how I want to look because she is a woman, nicely built. I looked at her gallery pics and gosh she has transformed some ladies life in a wonderful way. The girls who she has worked on have post's on this forum with before and after pics that are amazing. I email her she emails right back within 24 hrs. I considered going abroad not only because of my close friend having went abroad but when I go to the salon here in New York (the Dominican salon) the girls speak so highly of the plastic surgery doctors in their country and I have meet several girls about 11 to be exact who look absolutely stunning I mean vixen worthy, who have all went there none to Yily, but there is a lot of girls on these forums who have and they look wonderful as well( a lot of girls going to Yily starting now all the way to April 2013) so look out for those threads as well).
I am excited and nervous I can't lie but I am doing this; and I cant wait to begin my video diary to share with you all. Do your research, listen to the good and the bad so you know what can happen and what to expect, every doctor is not great and everyone's outcome is not the same so educate yourselves; I do everyday by reading you all's threads which has played a great part in my reassurance and motivation for cosmetic surgery to change my life. My plans for myself after surgery is happy healing, run a successful salon and lounge. I see nothing but the stars, the sky is the limit. OMG this is so long sorry :( but I wanted to start my thread off correctly!!!!!! Many more to come.
Good Luck to all the beautiful ladies of this forum,Congrats to the ones who have already had their lives changed for the best, and may God Bless the ones who are suffering. (It isn't over yet!!)
