33 Yo Mother of One, Ready to Get my Dream Body -BBL. Houston, TX

Have my consult set up with Dr. Cortes on...

Have my consult set up with Dr. Cortes on September 3rd! Excited :) I'm 5'2" 126lbs (gained 5 lbs once i decided on getting BBL ) Really hoping I'm at okay weight for my dream booty. Hoping I don't have to gain much more. Want a small waist. Right now I'm 34inches and like 39hips. Hoping to get hourglass figure and perky butt

Getting nervous :/

I have spent countless hours reading reviews and experiences and am so scared :(( The more I read the more I get nervous about choosing the right doctor . Can someone with a similar body stats that used Dr. Cortes comment? I need reassurance . Thanks ladies :)) really want to get it right the first time !! I'm such a wimp and it took months for the pain of my breast augmentation to subside . Lol

Consult done & have surgery date set!

So happy/ nervous! Have my surgery date set up and ready to so. Dr Cortes said I need to gain about 8 lbs. Currently I am at 127. He said I would have loose skin and still need TT. Kinda expected that though. I am really hoping that I will have a flat(ish) tummy and hourglass shape. I am going to start looking at all you lady's reviews so I can start buying supplies. :) My sweet boyfriend took day off to take me and planning to pay and go over there and help me during recovery. I'm a blessed lady . I am getting nervous though and feel so so selfish... It's a lot of money to spend and I feel guilty :(

Gaining weight diet :/

Ugh so I have 42 days to gain 8 pounds. It's doable I know but day one and I feel sick!! I have a small appetite usually and that's been my saving grace from gaining because I'm not very healthy unfortunately . I refrain from too much fast food and fatty foods but only because my appetite is usually tamed. I have already gained almost 8 or 9 lbs so I don't fit in most of my clothes and feel like the marshmallow man. :/ good thing is the surgery is not too far so this is only temporary . I just feel blah... I mean the goal weight is 135lbs.... I was 137 when I gave birth to my 7 lb boy !! That was my cap weight so I feel like I might pushing it... I just keep telling myself it's temporary and it will be worth it .

Signed all forms for surgery

It's so surreal... I have such mixed emotions about this. Guilt, fear, excitement. I have one month left and have been so nervous that I'm nauseated and feel myself preoccupied with questions and fears.. I am so sick of food and feel like an Oompa Loompa :/ I just keep telling myself it will be worth it... Please God let this time fly by. And please brain just shut up for a while okay?
