I was always a small and thin child. At the age of 9 my parents got divorced and my Dad did the best he could but I turned to food for comfort(no one to blame but me). I have his shape-thin legs but a big tummy. I got up to about 200 lbs in college and decided at 19 it was time to go. I had one every diet in the past but nothing worked. I exercised and ate well and lost 60lbs. Met my hubbie after college and was always uncomfortable about my stomach as I literally had a spare tire that would not go no matter what I did!
2 children later and up and down with the pregnancies has only made my already disfigured stomach worse. I am 39 and it is time for me! I have maintained my weight of 145 for the past 5 years (I am 5 ft 5 inches) but can't wear jeans or have to go up sizes for clothes to not have my stomach show.
I have a loving family and healthy but need to get this fixed. I met with 3 drs and all said a tuck is the only way to go. I am booked for 11/15 and can't wait. Dr said I need an extended TT. My kids will go to my parents for 10 days while my hubbie takes care of me!
Will I be ok in a month for my hubbies' company party?
I am so scared but excited at same time!
I can't wait for 11/15. Did you all tell...
