Let me begin by telling you that my initial quest...
Let me begin by telling you that my initial quest was for a Brazilian Butt Lift. I didn't have to search far. I selected Dr. Andrew Jimerson, paid my deposit and have my sx date scheduled for Jan 2014. Then I came across Dr. Wilberto Cortes, in Houston. After researching and watching many of his educational video series on Youtube, and his website RejuvenusAesthetics, I was COMPLETELY SOLD! I knew that I had to have his signature "Hourglass Tummy Tuck". I also liked his breast reduction and lift technique. So, I scheduled a consult, as well as a sx date and paid my deposit for a Mommy Makeover! You can follow my blog over at the BBL FORUM to get more details.
I'm getting excited!
The reality has finally hit me! Yeasss hunties in less than two months this body is going to be transformed! I spend so much time grabbing and manipulating my loose skin to get a better idea of what to expect when it is no longer there. I began my weight loss journey last March and I'm proud of my accomplishments. I've been blogging my journey in the BBL forum (initially, this was to be my first sx), however I'll be coming here to do my updates
My source of inspiration.
The photos of this RS member's amazing transformation gives me so much hope. Her weight 3 days pre-op was 311lbs. She has been the only person that I could find that had a body type that was most comparable to mine. She's 6ft tall, and I'm 5'10". I began my weight loss journey at nearly 300lbs, and now I'm down to 265lbs. I get so emotional whenever I see her results. I'm praying for the same.
Here I am. Don't get too comfortable with seeing me this way. This larvae is soon to complete her metamorphosis. I'm going to emerge from my cocoon as a beautiful butterfly!
HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!!!!!!!
Whasuppppp!!!!!!!!! Hey ladies I'm looking forward to bringing this New Year in with a bang! 2014 is MY year to shine. I get my body reconstructed a few days after my birthday, and is going to be LOVELY! Can't wait to join the rest of my sistahs who have already taken the plunge. Everyone stay safe tonight. Turn up!
299lbs vs. 264lbs and counting...
Just wanted to share my weight loss journey photos. I began in mid March and I've been holding steady between 265-270lbs.
Getting the new year started right!
I was at the gym bright and early this morning getting it in. Guess what? I was the ONLY only soul there!lol
My chi-chi's now, and my wish picture.
90 mins. of intense cardio
I want a strong healthy heart!
Lodging for 3.5
Well... I installed both Home Away & Airbnb apps. I found a gorgeous fully apartment in The Woodlands,TX . Just a short drive from the Conroe office. Bedroom #1 has a queen sized bed & A recliner chair. The 2nd room is a fully furnished nursery). The living room has a sofa sleeper (perfect for my caregiver/nanny) contacted the host with our itinerary date info. However, She was unable to accommodate our needs. She could only offer us 4 days max. and we need 21 days. The search continues....
Alright so now that I've booked the flight, I'm one step closer to getting my goal accomplished, and one step closer to my dream!
Sh!t just got REALLY real!
It just doesn't get any better than this. One week after my birthday, is my surgery date! Needless to say I'm very excited. This year is getting of to a great start!

System continues to erase my blog entry.
I'm so tired of my post updates getting deleted

PLEASE CHECK OUT MY BBL BLOG
Hey ladies, I'm horrible with updating my "Mommy Makeover" Blog. For Real Time updates please refer to my bbl blog. It's cumbersome updating in both areas. I started my plastic surgery journey seeking a bbl, then I changed my mind midstream to the "Mommy makeover".
LOOK AT MY CHI'CHI'S
My Goody Bag
Nurse Deanna is the BEST and a life saver!!!!!! She hooked up this wonderful bag of supplies for me. Dr.Cortes staff will make sure you have everything you need!
Before & After
This is the picture I sent to Dr.Cortes, back in March 2013, almost a year ago. Here I am today.
Hard to hold!
It's going to take a lot to tame this tigress!
I purchased my first cheap bra at Walmart today!
After years of paying $60 -$75 for minimizing, full coverage, ultra lift bras, I went to Walmart and purchased this cutie. I love it!
I'm tickled pink!
Everyday I look at the mirror in wide eyed amazement as I watch my body morph right before my very eyes. I love the way I look in my clothes. Especially the simple things, tank top and compression bottoms. My stomach is getting flatter with each passing day, and I'm very conscious about what goes into my mouth! I drink so much fluid throughout the day. I eat oatmeal for breakfast w/a banana, have a protein shake for my snack, at least one salad with a variety of veggies, and for dinner I try to eat grilled chicken, 2 veggies, and a starch. Still getting my walking in. Feeling fabulous!
Lawdddd shawty baddd!
Just finished my in office procedure. It only took 2 hours. My back is flat now since Dr. Cortes released the fluid from the seroma on my back. Yes I have that scoop in my back now!
Dr. WILBERTO CORTES is truly dedicated to educating his patients. I chose him because his work yields AMAZING results. His work speaks for itself. He even goes a step further (All BBL & TT procedures are performed at a hospital with a mandatory overnight stay for observation), now who does that? A doctor that cares about his patient's well being and overall health. That means a great deal to me. He requests that his patients select a hotel near his Conroe office so that he can conveniently stop by to check on them post op. I feel at peace with my decision to select Dr. Cortes as my p/s.
