Hi girls. Like so many of you out there ,I have been reading everyone's stories and finally decided to share mine
My name is Ria. I am 42 years old with 3 children. Identical twin girls who are 7 years old and a son who is 5. I am 5'8" and was always fairly thin ( 135lbs) that is until I started fertility treatments about 10 years ago. Thankfully I conceived fairly quickly but gained 30 lbs before I even got pregnant due to all of the drugs. During first pregnancy I gained over 100 pounds. Crazy. I didn't lose much of it before getting pregnant again with my son. After my son was born I just didn't have the willpower to lose the weight. I was depressed and just not enjoying life. 4 years later I knew I had to do something. I just wasn't ' living' and knew it wasn't fair to my children. I joined weight watchers and worked out 6 days a week. I lost nearly 80 pounds in about 8 months and feel fantastic,. After the weight loss I have loose skin ( and fat) around my stomach. So I am having a mommy makeover in 5 weeks! I am having a breast lift along with the tt. I am so excited but of course nervous. I actually thought I would be more nervous than I am but reading all if your stories made me more excited than nervous . Thank you all for that.
I live on long island in new York and am having my surgery in new York city. I consulted with quite a few dr's but ultimately knew right away which dr was for me. Living so close to NYC I have access to so many wonderful plastic surgeons.
I am happy to be going through this journey with all of you. I look forward to getting to know many of you and sharing our experiences.
Good luck to you all!!
Well yesterday was a month until my 'mommy...

Hi ladies. I cannot express how reading everyone's posts daily has truly helped me prepare for this journey. You all make me feel so 'normal' when I feel a certain way and then find out that you all have felt the same at some point. I was experiencing only excitement up until a few days ago. Then nerves settled in. I ordered the hospital bed today. I was going back n forth deciding if it was necessary. I finally decided to just do it bc I would rather be safe then sorry. My bed is very high up.
I really feel like I know some of you. I am eagerly waiting to see how you all make out. I too will post after surgery as soon as I am up to it.
I am working out extra hard and eating minimal to get a few extra pounds off!!
So does anyone know if we can wear nail polish?????

I rented a hospital bed and a walker. After reading how dizzy people get when walking I decided a walker may be helpful. It was $100 to rent for a month or $120 to buy. I bought it.I also rented a table with wheels that goes across the bed if needed and a raised toilet seat.
It's funny, since booking these procedures all I could think about tge aesthetic results. Now all I do is pray that I wake up. I cry all the time. I walked in my daughters room the other other day while they were in school and sat on their bed and just cried. Please tell me I am normal for feeling this way bc I am truly starting to question it,
Hi. Well it's been over 2 weeks recovery and I am...
