I'm 24 years old with a 6 year old and 4 month old and both of my girls were big babies! My stomach looks crazy and my skin has stretched to the max each pregnancy... I'm ready to wear my old clothes again. After my last daughter my final weight was 254.. currently I'm a 197lbs and would like my goal weight to be between 165-170 I'm 5'9 in height.

I'm scheduled for my tummy tuck 1/27/2012 currently thinking about rescheduling for 1/20/2012 this is sooooo long over due I'm suuuppeerrr excited reading everybody's story.. I work out about 4 days a week.. zumba, taebo, and my treadmill at home! I'm on a mission and I diet and watch what I eat until I reach my goal!!

Hi ladies!! I know I haven't posted at all.. I...

Hi ladies!! I know I haven't posted at all.. I guess you can consider me kind of shy! But anyways I'm scheduled for my post op today!!! Yaaaaaaayyy (clapping & dancing) my surgery is 2 weeks away and I am sooooo excited. I'm not nervous about the post op pictures because that'll be the old me! I'm so ready to get this over with! :)

I'm scheduled for my tummy tuck 1/27. My Preop is today and I am soooo excited! I will post before and after pictures soon. I will be 25 this year but this is something I've always wanted to do! My oldest daughter is 6 years old after I had her I went from 154 lbs @ 5'9 to 205 lbs... Of course my stomach muscles were ruined lol.. and recently I gave birth to another princess who's 5 months now. And after her my final weight was 254. I'm currently a 197 lbs and working on it. My idol weight is 160-165. I have grown and gotten use to my womanly curves but I miss fitting in my low rise jeans.. I'm so happy I found this forum as so many women have the courage to post their pictures and share their experiences. When I tell people about my surgery the outcome is never positive! But I'm doing this for me!! I cannot attend the beach in a bikini at my young and vibrant age because of the loose skin from carrying two big babies... It's my time to shine and get my sexy back!!!!! 2 weeks is around the corner!!

Soooo my lab results and everything turned out to...

Soooo my lab results and everything turned out to be fine! Now I'm waiting to have my surgery on the 27th. Does anybody know what I should buy besides the compression garment? What else do I need to prepare myself for the surgery after I'm home?

Okay I haven't posted in a while. I've been busy...

Okay I haven't posted in a while. I've been busy taking care of the kids and making sure last minute things are in order before I'm scheduled for surgery... The anxiety is starting to kick in. I can't believe in 3 days I'm going to have the surgery I've been dreaming of... Till next time :)

I feel pretty good. I got a chance to take a peak at my belly.. the pain is not as bad as I thought!! I'll try and post pictures real soon as soon as this medicine wears off

The pain honestly isn't that bad. I'm able to get...

The pain honestly isn't that bad. I'm able to get up and go to the bathroom without help. My ps office called and said I can take a bath. I've been only taking 1 percocet instead of 2 since I'm not in alot of pain. I can stand up pretty good. From time to time I feel nauseas but that has worn off. I haven't gotten my appetite back quite yet but I've been drinking a lot of fluidsn I promise I will post pictures as soon as I get to a computer. I feel so much better I love my results

Good morning ladies... It's incredible how much...

Good morning ladies... It's incredible how much you need your stomach muscles. I feel great. I don't take the percocets anymore as I can tolerate the pain which is barely any at all. And my stomach is already itchy along the sides. I'm assuming its healing. I'm walking around the house when I get a chance and I have my feet propped up watching tv. I have my mom and boyfriend here helping me but really I'm able to do for myself.. ill update later.

Today is better than before. Im doing great and...

Today is better than before. Im doing great and feeling food!! I will be posting pictures today of before and after. I can honestly say there is no pain besides laughing coughing or sneezing... :)

Good Morning. :) Today I have an appointment with the PS. I hope today is the day I have my drains removed. I have been so bored at home about to pull my hair out. I feel so normal just a tad bit hunched over. other than that all is well.

Well I'm 19 days post op. Feeling better and...

Well I'm 19 days post op. Feeling better and better everyday. I've been able to stand up straight, go to the mall, and do some of my regular activities. I've been itching a lot around the incension area but that is to be expected. I have an appt tomorrow with my ps. Hopefully I can start light exercises. In the morning I have little to no swelling and then during the day I look full and bloated. I cannot wait to be at least 4 months post op. I believe by that time all of the swelling would go down. I still try and eat healthy and maintain my weight. I return to work on Monday the 20th. I'm currently looking for stage two garments since the one I have I'm ready to throw in a river.. other than that all is well. I would post pictures later. P.S. I've been doing some hard thinking about a breast augmentation... I have this nice tiny waist but my girls up there are a little sad lol I'm very contemplative at this point.

Time has fly by!! I will post pictures later today

Dr. Jeffery Hamm

Dr. Hamm is a very nice surgeon. Overall his staff and nurses were awesome. I didn't see him after my surgery which made it pretty weird I had some questions but I guess that will be answered at the pre op appt
