Weight Gain After Child Bearing; I Am Ready - New York, NY

After visiting this site and reading everyone...

After visiting this site and reading everyone reviews for the last two years, I made up my mind to have my tt. I am a 48 year old AA mother of five. I have 28 year old twins, 26, 25. and 15 year old sons. After my child bearing years I gain al lest 75 pounds. I was able to lose the 75 pounds by walking, running and cardo classes. However, it seems like all the weight went to by stomach and breast. I had a breast reduction in 2011 now it all the weight has shift to my stomach. Prior to having my last son, I had a flat stomach. I am nervous and somewhat afraid, but I have been reading you guys reviews and following you guys advise. I luv this site and I look forward to you guys helping me through this. Did I mention in the mist of all of this I got divorce. I just want a fresh look and be able to wear my clothes without trying to hide my muffin tops. After reading some of the reviews I am no longer nervous everytime I get a little nervous I come to this site and read the comments and suggestions. You guys are just awesome. I can wait until its my turn to give suggestions and help someone.

Hi ladies, it has been a while since I logged in. I have been very busy. I am 6 wks PO. I went to see my PS on Tuesday, all is well. Stilll a little sore in some areas. Swelling comes and goes. I still eat my pineapples and I stay away from salt, and sweets. My PS said I can return to the gym. I am taking it slow and easy. I wish all my TT sisters a speedy recovery. It feels so good to be on the flat side.

Hi @Brenda45851 Congratuations on a successful surgery and recovery. Can you please provide me with a breakdown of your surgery cost? I asked you this because I had a consult also with Lennox in November of 2012 and they quoted me $6800 which included the nurse.

Last night was a little rough especially for my daughter. For me it was like a c-section just that you have to walk really hunched over.
