I am 54 years of age. I have been up and down the weight roller coaster but for the 1st time in my life, I have not been successful in trimming all this fat around my middle. I am so tired of pants rolling down my stomach and it's just plain uncomfortable lugging all this fat around my belly! I'm not expecting miracles, so any improvement will be celebrated. I am so happy I found this site. It sure helps to hear about other people's experiences. I'll be sure to post my progress.

My main challenge concerning this procedure is the compression garment in general and sleep issues in particular.
The Body Magic Garment that was highly recommended did not work for me so I am wearing a garment I purchased from a store in the Disover Mall thanks to a tip from a fellow realself blogger. This is my 2nd day in it. It's tight and immediately removes inches from my waist. I can wear it all day, but cannot sleep in it or at least I couln't last night. I also cannot sleep in the velcro wrap I was given after the procedure. I can sleep in a Spanx but it's not really tight enough even though I bought a small. I was given a medium Spanx after the procedure.
Issues with compression garments aside, I am VERY PLEASED with the results..no more belly hanging down, I have a waist now and the soreness is gradually diminishing. This was definitely worth it but still, I am really looking forward to feeling completely normal again and storing away these garments! LOL
