I am having smart lipo on my upper and lower tummy, muffin tops, inner and outter thighs on May 24th 2012. I weigh 140 lbs and i am 5 ft 4 inch. i am 23 yrs old and am a mother of two who are 1 and 2 yrs of age. before i had kids i weighed 125lbs then after having my son i was 130lbs......yes i was still small and i loved my body. But then after having my daughter i was 170lbs.....I WAS SO DEPRESSED BEING THAT BIG!!! Well being a mother of two very small children and a husband who is in the marine corps, it was hard for me to try and lose the weight. Either i was tired from a long day or i was sick...i didnt have time to lose the weight. finally after my daughter was about 7 months i got the strenth some how to go to the gym in the eveningis. i lost 30lbs in 4 1/2 months. its Been 14 months since i lost the 30 lbs and i am still having trouble dropping the last 10 lbs. i have some stretch marks that are not really noticable and very little cellulite. I JUST WANT TO LOOK AND FEEL SEXY AGAIN..LOL!

I have been researching about Smartlipo for the past 4 months and decided to get it done. i am really nervous but excited at the same time.

it has been 2 1/2 weeks since my surgery. i am feeling great and am back to doing my usual cleaning, cooking and taking care of my kiddos :-) he week after i had smart lipo my weight went up from 140 to 151...maybe my scale was messed up or something because thats 11 lbs. but then i weighed myself this morning and i am back down to 138. i love my results..and i couldnt be any happier. had a follow up appt last week and Dr. Zannis said that my results were looking great and that i will be getting smaller. so i am looking forward to the next couple of months or so :-)

my Garment is getting really loose and i adjusted the straps but thats not helping so i had to order a smaller one online.

Doctor told me to wear my garment as much as possible. So i have been wearing it 24/7 but take it off when i have to shower.

Lost a couple more pounds :-)

So went shopping yesterday for a new outfit for date night with my hubby. I was so nervous trying to find something to wear. Before smartlipo i wore size 9/10 jeans. well it has been exactly a month today since i had it done. While in Rue 21 i just grabbed a pair of size 5/6 jeans just to see if they would fit and they did. But they were really loose on me. So i tried on a size 3/4 and the fit perfectly!!!!!! I cant believe i wear a size 3/4 in jeans again! Never thought i would go back to the old size i was before having kids!! Stil have a long ways to go to see more results but i love the way i look now.

Also, i have started to exercise and run. Husband has been running with me and pushing me to stay fit. So i have to thank his military motivation lol
