15lbs down, 30 more to go!!!

I am currently residing in ga, definitely won't be...

I am currently residing in ga, definitely won't be getting the procedure done here since Atlanta is the"fake ass" capitol and all the prices are jacked up. I am at my dr research stage and I'll probably get my procedure done in Florida. I just got approved for a care credit card last night with a $6500 credit line(anyone have any experience with this?) but I have not received any quotes from drs yet. Anywho, about me.. I'm 25, no kids, don't plan on having any, and I'm engaged to the love of my life. She is the one paying for this procedure because she knows how my recent weight gain has depressed me.(I gained 20 lbs since the beginning of our relationship) I do not know where to start with this whole thing ladies, I'm researching like crazy and becoming obsessed!

pre op pics!

Obsessed or Nahh??

Y'all.... I have literally been looking at booty non stop for two days. I'm foaming at the mouth over this procedure. So far I have contacted:
Dr fisher
Dr perry
Dr ortega
Dr soto
Dr pazmino
Dr salzhauer

Im waiting for my consultations and quotes to start pouring in so I can choose and start pre pricing everything. I feel like I'm having an early Christmas!!! Will post pre op pics from the computer since it won't let me from my phone!

ughh just let me be great man!!!

Forgot my measurements but im 5'6 215lbs. Im still in the process of uploading and taking pics. I dont feel the need to cover my face because im that type. Im not gonna lie or ignore the facts that ive been enhanced. Anywho, my fiancee hit me where it hurt today man... she told me she really didnt want ne to do this, my ass was angry and sad at the same time. She told me to do what makes me happy, but then you say you dont want me to. I cant be mad at her for being afraid of losing me to cosmetic surgery, or even being in pain because of my hurt. Im starting to feel like im being selfish by even wanting this shit! Its about to be a tug o war! Ughhh!!!

Dr. Davis-Bouette?

So I've been searching for bbl surgeons in ga to cut back the traveling just in case my fiancee can't get the time off and I ran across Dr. Bouette... she's offering a bbl starting at $1999.00 and I haven't seen many bbl pcs from here but baybehhh she is the smart lipo queen!!! , at that price I could have my bbl and more aggressive lipo on my fat body. Im going to consult with her since that special ends Tuesday, if this is who I want I have to lock my price in quickly! Hell I may even have something left over too lol!!!

Consultation with vanity for Fisher

Mann... where do I begin..

I was quoted for $5,000(yess!! Care credit gave me up to $8000) I spoke with alexandra and she was prompt and pleasant, she went over everything with me and told me what the price included. She also suggested travel tips to help cut out of pocket expenses. She did tell me that I needed to lose 20lbs(I will more than likely lose it in my legs because my stomach is stubborn!) And she said I MAY need a tummy tuck(I am scared to death about this part!!) I heard all about the wonderful recovery house but it bumped the price up $2500 and I may not need it since someone will be coming with me, but who knows. I believe I could get the massages and garments cheaper, and my fiancee could nurse me =) ..I loved the way she described my body as me having hips and a smaller waist, I would've never thought I did lol. My body just looks crazy to me, I didn't think I had hips! anywho, I'm loving the price, but I'm still waiting to hear from bouette and one more dr to make my final decisions and lock in my price!

pre op pics

Let's try this again lol. Hopefully they load. But again, I'm 5'6 215lbs, 25 no kids.

I need help y'all!

Since my procedure will be covered through financing I need to know what else I need to pay for that isn't covered(labs,tests, medicines etc) im trying to have all my money in order so I won't fall short. I know I'll have to pay for massages and all, but what else? I need to get the whole total of things! Any help is welcomed! =)

Ortega outta the picture!!! (Slight Rant!)

So I just consulted with Anabel at CG(nice girl and prompt) and she said that Ortega said I basically need to lose 35lbs and then I would be a candidate for a TT (not a BBL which is what I consulted about, but with lipo to other areas) Idk if the girls make these things up or not because I know the dr doesnt stop during surgery to look at pics, plus ive seen girls my size go to ortega with no TT. TT is definitely out of the picture, shit, after I lose almost 40 lbs wtf would I pay $5000 to do a tummy tuck? If I had a little lose skin I'd find a cheaper alternative. Im not a dr but I just don't think all fat ppl need a tummy tuck or will have lose skin(ive also seen pics of bigger BBL candidates who lost weight and didn't get a TT) Losing weight has been the hardest thing in my life, and I doubt I can lose 35lbs in 4 months. Hell Vanity only told me to lose 20lbs n said I MAY need a TT after but it's not certain. If I wanna have a fat ass and a saggy stomach I think I should be the judge of that, instead of being told what order I can fix my body in...I'm not even gonna put that pressure on myself. Guess I'll be going with my first gut, Fisher!

DEPOSIT PAID!

My deposit is paid!! Im texting Alexandra right now to see what dates Fisher has available in November so I can get this ball rolling!! I will be driving to Miami with my fiancee. Any girls looking to buddy up please let me know! (Once again it'll be me and my fiancee so if you're anti gay then this isn't the buddy for you)=

Just paid my surgery in full && got my date!

Just paid my full amount and got my date. I'm waiting to get an email back from Alex about the process, I also talked to Claudia about refunds and everything. They both are very helpful and sweet!!! I am booked for Nov.11th.. wow man... this is real!!!! Alex was pushing for me to stay at the recovery house since they had $500 off but it still pushes me above my credit limit which I don't want to go. I did opt in for the 5 massages, 2 garments, lipo foam and tablet for $500 with vanity though only because it saves me cash since I'm financing. I can't believe I'm actually doing this agh!!! Okay, time to kick this weight loss in gear though!!!

Lazy As All Hell && Vanity Cs

Lol today is day 2 of exercising with the wifey. She isnt big at all but she lazy as all hell. She has a small pouch that she wants to turn into abs, so working out wont be so bad cuz I wont be alone. The gym in my apts is fairly small so I won't be spending much time in there but I WILL be getting up cardio up n all dat!! As far as dieting... may the diet gods be with me!! Im eating healthier though, I cut out sodas, fried foods, and sweets already. I have to take this mess in moderation because I dont wanna overwhelm myself. Idk how ppl drink a whole gallon of water but when I do, I dont even feel like eating that much, and I'm using up all the damn tissue LOL!! Oh and its been 4 hours now since Alex told me she was printing out my papers to email me. Im praying I dont have an issue with Vanity because if I do, I plan on talking to Dr Fisher about it when I see his face. Come on now, it took 30seconds to take $5500 from me, Im gonna be a little more patient because Alex did tell me they were busy today.

More PRE OP pics

Selfie Wish Pic.

So I'm just playing around with this surgery app and this pic I made is similar to how I want to look. Pretty cool!

Booty Nightmares!!!!!

I've been looking at many booty pics and I PRAY I don't get one of those booties that merge with the back of your thighs, you know, those long no cuff at the bottom type booties. I swear that's a waste of money to me, I'd cry everyday!! I'm glad I got 4 months to get my body in better shape before my bbl. I also don't want a snatched body with big ass flabby arms, this procedure has motivated me to eat better and exercise already!!

Wish pics

I'm not really a wish pic girl because every body type is different, BUT if I had to choose a perfect booty it would be either of these.. man I'd shut the club, parking lot, and grocery store down!!!!!

Please Dont Do This To Me(a litle tmi)

So I just woke up from sleeping, I've been in much pain since earlier but I'm the type to sleep pain off... I wake up and tadaaaaa my f$!@#ng period is on!! My period switches days every 5/6 months so this is the start of a new time frame for me... but what is today? 7.11... approximately 4 damn months before I get my sx. I CAN NOT bare going through this surgery during my menstrual y'all.. my cramps are no joke, and to have blood coming from multiple areas of my body is too damn much. Blood makes me week as hell, plus I'd be scared that I would lose too much blood.. my cycle typically stays on 3 days so I'm contemplating....whew man, I'm just gonna stay hopeful and positive that it changes again!

Surgery CANCELLED

I cant even start to say how pissed I am, because I fear im going to sound selfish.. but to say the least, my fiancée decided she wants to go back to school now and im just now hearing all the details of it. So since im not working or funding anything right now, I just decided to tell her I was gonna cancel the surgery(she didn't disagree, or even comment on it for that matter) so I cancelled it. Im hurt, im upset, and I thought we were on the same pg but we weren't... maybe next year... ugh..

GOOD NEWS Y'ALL

Ya girl finally got a job!! Its been 6 long fckn months of unemployment and no income. I am so happy I can't stop smiling. I'm going to save $1500 then my surgery is BACK ON!!

Got My Date Back...Plus bad news..

Well I'll start with the good news, I got my date back for November 2014, Alex my pc is such a sweetheart, I'm glad she understood what I was going through at the moment..
Anywho on to the bad, I was originally told to lose 20lbs because of my weight, I went to donate blood last week and found out I'm 21 lbs heavier than I was. I now have to lose 55 POUNDS to get my bmi down... November seems so far away but weight loss ain't easy. Between the sweating and moving around at my job, plus my current diet, and me joining a gym next month, I WILL LOSE THESE 55 lbs!! This was meant to be lol!!!

Oh Y'all Got Me F***ed Up!!

Day 2 of my new job has been a headache. Just to clarify, I don't normally work under the management or with black ppl, it's just my preference. This place is mostly ran by Hispanics who speak broken English..anyway, so today I got stationed in another section and it was my first time, so of course I was trying to catch up. One black girl gonna say to me "y'all two slowing us up" and eventually I was moved to another section. I get over there and a Hispanic lady kept saying "ayyee no no" and shooing me away with her head, she said that was her "amigas" spot. Then 2 hours later "a machine breaks" and they sent all the black ppl home... y'all I'm irritated as hell.. these bitc*** can work on my nerves but they won't be stopping my check. I got a body to buy in November!!!!!!

Having Second thoughts..about vanity!!!

I've been reading many recent reviews about vanity and it's turning me off. I can't say I disagree with any of it at all... When I told my pc I was ready to schedule my surgery again she sent me multiple messages back to back trying to get my card info, but when I text her simple questions like what's the address for vanity so I can look up hotels, I hear nothing back(today is day 3, no response) idk about y'all, but $5000 doesn't come my way easily, me and my wife break our backs to make things possible for each other so I have NO ROOM FOR ERROR. I'm really thinking of finding another Dr(I love fishers work but is VANITY worth the headache?) I need to know that if I had a question POST OR PRE OP that it would be answered ASAP. I know vanity is crowded but if they just stopped trying to make so much profit by fitting so many ppl in every week, they would be able to focus more on patients and follow up, and Fisher would have time to actually build rapport with patients. This is my first and only time I'm going to be able to do this surgery and my life and body is precious, I want to be at ease before sx because that lets me know what kind of experience I'll have after...Im not sure if it's just my pc or if they all are there to serve you when trying to get your money, and then don't care after but it leaves a nasty taste in my mouth...Idk y'all, I think I'm going to continue to shop around for now, I can always get my money back...

This is ridiculous

me at my highest weight EVER... a whopping 235lbs.. all bad y'all... I'm disgusted with myself...

Pics of me between 185-195

these were pics of me when I was fine with my weight... I've never been small, but I was content... I call them my "get back" pics

Losing weight, feeling great!!

Like many others, I've tried every fad diet around(liquid,pill,powder etc) on top of exercise.. well 5 days ago I decided to give another product a shout since the wife bought the pills for me. They are called "hcg activator" they are hormone free and natural. The first week before you take the pills they insist that you gorge and baby I had so much fun. The first two days of taking the pills you continue to gorge because day 3 of the pills you are on a 500 calorie diet(with STRICT food intake guidelines).. well I am on day 5 and have successfully made it through 2 days of the 500 calorie diet, I thought that it would be hard as hell, but I'm already down 3lbs in 2 days. It's a start and I'm just happy to see the numbers go down. At this rate I will definitely lose the 40lbs before sx, hell I may even reach my personal goal and lose 55lbs. I will keep everyone posted on this weight loss journey. Any questions feel free to ask me, and good luck to all the other sistas out here losing weight!

More awesome news

I've been so miserable at this warehouse job, but I finally go for my orientation at Wal-Mart on Monday. it's not much, but to have one job that pays every week and one that pays every two weeks is the bomb.com . I really feel like I was destined to have this surgery now considering where I was just about two months ago. just thought I'd share my good news with you girls, now I'm off to the gym!!! =D

Weight loss and VANITY updates...

Okay so last time I wrote on my blog I was so ecstatic about my weight loss. y'all this diet is so strict you can only have 500 calories a day
breakfast: black coffee or tea with no sugar
Snack: apple/orange, or a hand full of berries and a melba toast
Lunch: 100 grams of meat, not fried, no butter, dressings, or oil tp prepare it, and 1 cup of veggies (no corn or potatoes)
Same repeated snack
Same items for dinner

For 2 weeks I handled it fine, with no complaints... then my period came on and my cravings made me gain the weight back. to be honest, I have no problem eating only 500 calories, but when you cut my caloric intake by 1000 AND give me a small list of approved foods then I get very bored and discouraged. So I decided to dump that diet because I'm not strict enough, and I plan to go to a dr Friday to get prescribed Phentermine. I will be working out 4-6 days a week and there are too many success stories behind phentermine for me not to try. on to vanity...
My pc Alex left me a voicemail a couple of days ago saying I needed to fax back the consent forms that same day or they would cancel the sx. I have been waiting for her to resend those damn papers for a month, she told me to check my spam and everything and I never got them. that day I finally received them and sent them back. I am going to text her just to make sure they didn't change my sx date because I'm going to be pissed the hell off. I won't be making any more updates until something drastic happens because I know ppl really don't care about the updates until you actually get the sx but I just thought I'd let ppl know how the weight loss journey has been and it's been especially hard watching wifey enjoy fried shrimp, French fries, pizza, chips etc while I pretend to enjoy my colourful tasteless vegetables and dry fish and chicken. I currently have 2 months and 3 weeks to lose 40 lbs sounds like alot but I will get er done. Goodbye for now dolls!!

Oh the drama lol!!

I'm not going to say names because specifics don't matter right now, but you know who you are. it's inappropriate to take ppl pictures from real self and upload them without their consent onto instagram because instagram is more known than this site is, which leaves more room for ppl to judge. nobody wants to share their experience on ig that's why they do it here, alot of these women sharing their experiences don't even tell their closest friends about this procedure so why do you feel it's okay to share others journey for the whole world to know? If you are truly sorry about something you would fix the mistake and move on, not screenshot pictures of conversations going on on real self and post them to your ig to get validation from your followers that what you are doing is okay. I don't give a damn who doesn't like this posts or who has something to say, but what I will say I'd don't ever screenshoot something I say and post it to ig anymore. It's not that serious for you to spend your life sharing the unwanted journey of others, if ppl are so curious to find out about someone else's journey they need to come to real self, none of us here opted in to have our business on ig, those that have probably are okay with it. but always think about how you'd feel if some random stranger was taking your pics using info from your journey using it on their ig pg, sounds a little crazy and obsessive. grow up, remove the screenshot, you apologized, so be genuine about it. the end!

Good luck! Phentermine is a miracle pill but you have to be careful because when you stop taking it if you do not continue your diet and exercise the weight will come right back faster than you lost it. I tried Phentermine and in the first 30 days I lost 30lbs I went from 198lbs to a total of 152lbs in less than 4 months. With exercising and counting calories as well and I have been able to keep the weight off for 3 years now. You will do great on the pills and your weight it already portioned so I think you'll do great!! I have heard negatives about Vanity but no negatives about Fisher his work is phenomenal!! I was afraid he may not be able to do the "black booty donk" but I reviewed several pics and they are great and he is a sweetheart and tells you the honest truth about expectations... As far as vanity umm unprofessional YES! They are not on the same page with each other I have been working with Alex for over a month now and like you still waiting on papers once you pay they seriously go MIA! She was supposed to call me the day after I paid and I ended up messaging her but someone else called me then other vanity lady emailed me to say Alex was off and blah blah! So I had to figure out which was more important dealing with the bs with vanity or going to the doc that I wanted. (Just my thoughts) I believe the ladies at vanity obviously get paid on commission and I am not concerned about their customer service a skin as they are NOT working on me! All the negative reviews are the same no communication after or took too long for a refund. Good luck stay positive and focused you'll do great!

That should of said I am not concerned about vanitys customer service as long as* auto correct :/

omg this comment is everything!! I have lost 10lbs already by just diet and exercise, I changed my eating habits and I feel great. I just need a boost because I have 38 more lbs to go and I know phen could get me there. I only plan on taking it for about 7 weeks and then I'm done with it. after surgery I'm definitely sticking to my same calorie and exercise program because I feel better already.. as for alex and vanity... giiirllll a headache. I know for a fact that they get paid commission because of their wolf like behaviors but once they get the money, they're own to the next victim. Alex has one more slip up with me and I'll be changing my pc, they know us girls love Fisher n he is the only reason vanity stands. I'm definitely going to ask him for a contact method the day before my surgery because it's a pain in the ass dealing with vanity and it seems no post op girls have asked him for contact info before their surgery

Good for you!!!!! You will get there. My weight was just falling off I was down a pound a day I never really noticed until people started telling me how small I was looking and in pics I started to notice. I took the pill for about 6 months. You also have to be off Phentermine for 2 weeks prior to your surgery. Phentermine down side is heart issues if you take it to long so just make sure your off 2 weeks before. Vanity sucks but I want Fisher and your right they are commission based and it shows! But fisher is total opposite! I am with you Alex has 1 more time. I have had 4 different women contact me asking me the same questions like don't they have an account with your info so they know? What I really don't like is if you don't ask they don't tell I learned a lot from RS and asking Alex and other doctors on my own. Half the time she didn't even answer the questions I asked. In one of her emails she responded to me was clearly to someone else (guess she was mixed up) she said "like I stated before " lol yup just rude I had to bring her down to let her know she didn't respond to the correct person and she is rude as hell! I can see why they just take your money and you don't hear back I think if they contacted me after I paid it would aggravate me lol because I don't know what we would be talking about lol I get all the info before paying so ...(Just me though). I was going to change my PC to Margaret because she seemed nicer but she then gave me a price that was $1,000 higher than Alex so I stayed with Alex. But yes they are aggravating to deal with but they aren't doing the surgery so I just stuck with it. To scared to go out of the country and I have heard Dr J Curves is kinda like ok I did your surgery and you won't see me again a lot of women said after they didn't see him surgery but what really turned me off is one of my friends went to him and he didn't even do blood work ok her I thought oh hell no!
