Oh my goodness, I have wanted a tummy tuck for 25 years...I am 53yro. 61"tall and current weight is 163. I have lost down from 205. Diet and exercise. I had lost 60 but gains some when peri -menopause started. (it sucks).
I so want a flatter stomach (no pouch) stretch marks don't bother me.
I want to tuck my shirt into my jeans and wear my western belt again without bulging lower belly. Look nice in swimsuit again.
I have initial consult 7 Jan. My biggest fear is he will tell I can't have the procedure.
Hi all !!! Well went to first Zumba class last...

Well I have been gathering some supplies already and making list. Got my money...trying to avoid sick people (rather hard to do)

I am so tired of the swelling...last week pre surgery jeans fit today not!!! Went to see my BFF Tuesday drove for about 3 hours with pit stops..first day just sit around and talked..then Wednesday went shopping all afternoon..went and ate Chinese(figured it didn't matter already swollen)..watched the Alex Cross movie...excellent...then drove home Thursday...now I am swollen and have pain left pubic area...call PS's on call nurse she thinks it is just from swelling..I think next week I will start walking and hope that gets me back to normal soon. All in all I am doing good and still love my results..energy is coming back ...just want this swelling and achy feeling to go away...

I only have walked 2 days last week...weather will not cooperate hopefully next week will be better..maybe I will go to the gym and try water aerobics. I am staying compressed at all times I only take off to bath.
I am still loving my new tummy and BB...oh numbness is probably 75 % improved..center above pubic area is still numb some on my left thigh..i still get little sharp pains and last two days oh my ...the lipo areas are painful again..I have a lot more energy and get bored real quick now. I am so looking forward to being 8 weeks..
Went to my sisters for Easter ...My family other than my Mom and Dad had not seen me since surgery. I wore my jeans with tee tuck in and a belt...They could not get over how flat my stomach is...made me feel so good... I think I have in a way encouraged my sisters and niece to get busy on losing weight ..I sure hope so .. not necessarily for them to look better but for their health..My younger sister started walking about a year ago..she saw how it had helped me to drop my weight and helped with stress..
Well it is time for bed..will post new pic's soon..
Will be 9 weeks tomorrow...I will say these past...

Have to say I have been sleeping with out binder last 2 nights..can't tell any difference in the morning so guessing it is not a problem..sleeping better.. still wearing cg all day ...can't give it up yet...and wearing golds gym belt when I work out...swelling is still the same Arkansas humidity is already starting ..plus we are still having unusual weather Hot then cold...been in the 80-90 degree range and may get snow in NWAr. later this week. then back to hot...ok lets see weight is still the same bouncing back and forth day to day between 156 and 162 so have stopped weighing..Hubby has made a couple skinny remarks... did tell me that a certain pair of pants made my butt look big..I just smiled and said may have a big butt ...but I have one flat tummy...lol then when I mention having my boobs done or butt or thigh work done he is all you look great don't touch anything else...I am already saving for BL or lipo on thighs..
ok that is all for now ...will update after my appt on the 13th...take care ladies happy healing to the ones already on the flat side and good luck to the ones coming over...
