Mom of two boys, I'm in my late 30's. I've decided to get a Mommy Makeover because like many here I've exercised for years (10 to be exact) and I haven't been able to lose the belly, but almost lost my boobs in the process. I also have discovered that I have a hernia and muscle separation and need to have that repaired.
A total of 5 people in my real life know. Two girlfriends that have had work done themselves. My husband and sister. I've avoided telling others because I don't want to be judged, criticized, or answer any questions. My best friend is anti-surgery, she has voiced her disapproval of it and so I only told her I was having a hernia repaired. She doesn't need to know that a flap of skin and fat will he removed or that my boobs are getting lifted and enhanced.
I'm looking forward to my surgery. I've wanted this for 8 years. My husband supports me. He has gone with me to all my appointments, has sat down and listened to everything I learned through my research. He is taking time off from work to take care of me, the house and our kids. He says he has done some research of his own. I'll take his word for it. I promised never to complain for not bringing me flowers in the past because this is pretty generous and will last way longer!
I often compare this experience to my experiences...

Fast forward to my pre-op visit on 9/15 and I'm told I need to stay away from alcohol. I resolved to eat clean the two weeks before surgery. Everything home made, lots of fruits and veggies, and lean protein. I also have been juicing. The benefits of juicing fresh fruits and veggies are endless. Wow, I'm so glad I did. Today four days before surgery I'm 3 lbs away from the top of my ideal weight range. A bit nervous and anxious, but I have to admit I feel great.
