I am 31 year old mother of one.. I have finally managed the courage to do this.. I will be having a TT, arm and flank lipo on April 15th.. I am doing this for myself and nobody else.. I hate the way my clothes fit and the way I have to buy for clothes that do not reflect who I am.
I have never been thin, I am 5'5,wt185 and size 14. I have tried for many years to loose wt and the older I get the harder it is.. I was about 150 before had my son, when I delivered I weighed 230 pounds which was pretty devistating.. It was hard to loose the wt, but I did it. I have been at this wt for the past 4-5 years and I cant seem to loose anymore. I do body combat 3 times a week and walk every other day.
I want to feel good in the clothes that I wear, I am not expecting to look like a VS model.I dont feel like the body I see in the mirror is mine. I know I can and will never be a size 5, I am realistic about that fact.I was born big boned and I will always be that way.
I have never had surgery of any kind, no broken bones NOTHING.. Soo, this is super scary for me.. The thought of getting cut open was just not at all what I wanted.. I had gone in for a consult for lipo, but due to my stretch horrible stretch marks and diastasis the PS advised that it wouldnt be practical. He told me that I would not be happy with the results, that I would have sagging skin and would probably be more unhappy with my body afterwards.
When he said TT my heart sunk, I didnt want to get cut or go under general anesthesia. After he explaines the procedure and the recovery I felt more at ease, it took me 4 months to finally decide that I needed to do this.
I know that many people say its the inside that counts, but not if the outside is making me so unhappy.I hate putting so much effort into hiding my body. I feel that this will make me happier with who I am and help me be more confidant in myself and my career.. I want to feel comfortable in my own Body.....
So, offically 10 days till the big day.. So...
