Well I am 25years old. I had my first daughter when I was 21 (2006) by emergency c-section.
Pre-pregnancy I weighed 140lbs afterwards I was at 160, it would've been more but I lost about 15lbs in the first trimester due to sickness. I had my second daughter in 2007 only 13months later. I topped out at 178 after that pregnancy which was a repeat c-section. I have a good amount of stretchmarks, but only a few above my belly button, and a flap above the c-section scar.
My hubby made a deal with me that if I could get to my pre-pregnancy weight he would buy me the tummy tuck that I have wanted for a long time. With that motivation I started dieting and exercising regularly. I jog about 3miles everday now. When I started I could barely go 3min and now I feel great after jogging for 30min. I went from 178lbs to 134lbs. I am actually thinner now than before kids. Whoo Whoo! It's super tough to stay on a diet and excercise plan though, I dread it almost everyday.
But I do love the way I look now, and after the removal of the saggy skin, which is worse since I lost 44lbs, and most of the stretchmarks, I should feel amazing about myself. My doctor has told me I will have an awesome result, since I have lost the weight and am in great physical shape. I have scheduled my surgery for August 20, so it's about 3 1/2 wks away. I am super excited and ready to see the results.
I handled the pain with the c-sections like there was none. I was up and walking the halls as soon as I woke from the anesthesia. I handle pain overall well so I don't think this will be very difficult for me in that sense. I should probably have mild pain at the most. I can't wait. NO PAIN NO GAIN!! So you won't hear me complain.
Ok I've uplodaded the pics of my weightloss now.

I am really happy with my tt results. I'm so glad I did it! It was questionable at first, the scar seemed so high and the stretchmarks were bumpy and weird looking...you can see in the pics with the orange shirt, I think like around week 2. It was bad. But it all smoothed out and the scar seems lower now since I have really flattened out. So I am happy! Still in the gym 6days a week and maintaining my goal weight. So all is good. Can't wait to see the difference after I finsih P90X. I will upload new pics at week 4, 8, and 13 when it's all over!
Yeah got my tattoo finished!! It's swollen in the...

My Doctor: Philip Pierre Hawner
He did a great job on the surgery..but was pretty much non-existent after that and I'd have to wait 85min at post-op appointments to see him for 2min. I walked out at the last post-op appointment and plan to get any other procedures done with Dr. Motlagh in Tyler. The main concern of a procedure is that it turns out good and mine did so on that part he was great.
