I'm 43 and I have 5 children, 25,21,18,12,9. I'm not happy with my body and I'm soo ready to change it. I have the ugly hanging belly and my boobs are not perky..not horrible but just not perky. lol I'm just starting to research my options and the doctors in my area. I plan to have surgery in Feb or March next yr. I want to lose 40 lbs before doing so and I need to save money. I have never had any type of surgery and that does make me nervous but I'm very excited for the end results. My fiance' was not a fan of surgery and was pretty set against me doing anything other than eating healthy and exercising to make the changes that I wanted. I finally showed him before and after pictures of mommy makeovers...NOW HE GETS IT!!! YAY! :) Thank you all for sharing your stories, I'm learning alot from your experiences.

Good luck with your research! I can't wait to follow your experience. :)

Forgot to mention that I did breast feed 4 of the 5 children. I'm working on losing weight. Right now I weigh 208....I lost 17 lbs in the last 3 weeks. I want to be in the 160's before surgery. I feel even more motivated to lose the weight now knowing that I will get better results. I will post pics soon without clothes....... dreadful. LOL
Hi, Welcome and Congrats on your weight loss! 17 lbs in 3 weeks is amazing. You should be proud of yourself. And Yes, knowing what the end result will be after the TT is a huge motivator to lose weight. lol

I look forward to following your journey. Good Luck in finding a good PS you feel comfortable with. :)

Good luck and looking foward on seen some wonderful after pictures from you
