Well today I made my decision I'm getting a TT with MR and lipo of the flanks and stomach. I have five beautiful babies and it's about time I take care of myself. I've been researching and I know I found the doctor who will help me bring out my inner goddess that's dying to come out lol. I haven't had a flat belly since the birth of my first child 12 years ago

Made a payment and now I'm just one more payment from paying off my doctor omg can't believe I just paid so much money for myself. I also bought supplies since I have the extra money I figure I might as well get everything I need so I'm not scrambling for the supplies later on. Other than that I'm so excited and can't wait to be on the flat side

Had my pre-op appt and everything went well I am having full TT, MR, lipo of the flanks and of the stomach :) my PS said he is going to get me as tight as he can get me so I'm happy to hear that. I can not wait for the 24th so I can see my new body

7 and 21 hours days till surgery!!!!

I am so ready for this week to hurry up and end so I can be closer to joining the flat side club!!! I gained some weight :( all the stress I'm at 208 :( but will not let it stress me out I know once I have the surgery I may lose some weight due to lack of appetite which that's what I'm hoping for LOL... Other than that nothing new to report.
Houston Plastic Surgeon

He made me feel so at ease and I knew he wasn't out to make money he told me that I only need just a standard TT and didn't want to add unnecessary procedures so that alone is what sold me

I just came from my loan officer. I almost passed out! But its done and for real, and mine is May 24th. Extended TT with MR, lipo flanks etc. arm lift and possible hernia repair. I am 5'5" and am now 178. I was hoping to get down farther, but I am hoping to continue weight loss. Excited about the flat side but ... scaredy cat right now. I will be following your story and wishing you well.

Right?? Does it feel real to you yet? Of course it sort of does. We have got our loan approved, and I've bought most of my recovery supplies. My recliner arrives the day before my surgery date. I think that's when It's REALLY gonna hit me - HA!! why am I in such denial? Because I didnt think this was really an option in my life. Me and my skin apron have been hanging out for so long! Every morning when I jiggle and jump so it settles deep into my jeans (LOL) the idea of not doing it anymore is so foreign!! GO YOU for your weight loss. I'm working out like a beast, but the number is hardly budging. Trying not to let it bum me out, though, since people are noticing that I look different, which is just as nice!

Lol. I'm doing great!!! Ran 6.3 total miles this weekend I'm a little sore but overall I feel great trying to lose as much as I can before surgery. What about you? How are you
  • Reply
6.3 miles is impressive! Go you! I'm working out everyday, feeling really great. Will be fabulous when my belly isn't flopping to and fro - hopefully it just pushes me forward and I don't take it easy! lol

I know I hate when I'm running and I feel the belly flopping away yuck lol I'm running four days a week and so far I love it
