i have always struggled with my weight my entire life even before i had 3 gorgeous kids i had a fat belly. this time last year i weighed around 10 or so and in a size 12 i am down to 140 and down to a size 8 at times that is tight i have always gone up and down like a yoyo but can never seem to lose the belly no matter how hard i work out so i have waited for my children to grow up and decided it is time for me to do something that i have always wanted to do i worked hard for this and i can't wait for the big day to get here.

OMG I only have 12 days left it is flying by I am trying to keep myself busy so I don't go stir crazy thinking about it. LOL. I think I have everything that I need for afterwards I have extra gauze pads and dressing I bought the product scarprin to help my scar heal faster. I filled my pain meds already and I am going this week to stock up on some good things to eat for afterwards to make it easier on everyone in my house. If there is anything else that anyone can think of that I may need please feel free to comment I am just so excited that it is finally almost here.

You look amazing!!! I'm almost 6 months and i'm also noticing i'm looking square. I don't get it because i looked better at 3 months. My docter did tell me that at 8 months he will also do touch up lipo if i'm not happy. I'm want to see if working out will help before i go through with the lipo. I can't wait to see what i will look like at 1 year. I hope i'm as happy as you!

Congrats missy. First off you look amazing and secondly it's nice to b able to get those touch ups done, I could not afford the lipo after I purchased my ticket to France. Lets see France ..... Lipo..... I would have rather got the Lipo!!! :-(. What is the down time for the lipo? I'm trying to figure out how to get it down before the summer. I will b In France 2 weeks so I don't have much time to take off

I think you look great. When did you start using the scar treatment? I was told I could start using it after two weeks, but I still have glue on my incision.
  • Reply
Thanks hotrodgirl I feel amazing. My doc wouldn't let me start using it until I was past my 3 weeks I had to wait for the tape to come off but I think my doctor did an awesome job on my incision. :)
