Time for a Change - Los Angeles, CA

I am one month before my procedure. I am feeling...

I am one month before my procedure. I am feeling worried about how my kids (8 and 10) are going to react to the news that I am going through with this procedure. I feel like this is something a need to do to feel like myself. I had hoped that I would lose the proverbial "last ten pounds" pre-op but that doesn't seem to be happening (what? Cake and no exercise doesn't create weight loss? Whatever.) I have NEVER shared online before but I'm glad to feel patrol this community.
My kids are 8 and 10 too. I haven't said anything yet. But we've talked and they know mommys tummy is fat! Lol

I just told the kids I was getting something done to my tummy. No need to go into it. What procedures are you having done?

Just a TT. Unfortunately, my daughter knows what a Tummy Tuck is (we live in LA!) and she thinks I am trying to look "sexy" because her father and I are now divorced. So it's hard for her. I actually just found out she has a presentation to make at school the week of my scheduled surgery so it looks like I'm going to have to postpone it...because we are moving to a new house, I may have to move it as long as until OCTOBER! Pretty dramatic way to avoid binging on Halloween candy :)

Had to postpone - mixed feelings

I have had to reschedule my surgery from April 8 until October. My daughter is having a particularly hard time right now and there was an event at her school I would have missed with the April date. Then we are moving into a new house in June, then school starts...
One of you wrote back something very supportive about waiting until this is the right time and was very kind and empathic about my struggles with my kids and their adjustments to my getting divorced. Thanks again.
Hey Suz. Checking in to see how you're doing...
