I'm 35yrs. Old 5'4 and165 pds hoping to lose 10lbs b4 my big day. I have 2 children 12 and 5. I have gained and loss weight over the years and realized that no matter how much weight I've lost my tummy would never be the same again. I'm struggling with my decision because like many of us on here since having children We have done nothing but give. I feel a bit selfish with my decision and keep telling myself that after all is said and done having a new bod (not as self conscience) will ultimately make me a happier person.

" A happier you is a better you" it's been over 12 yrs since I have wore a bikini... I don't feel any particular way about this but I'm pretty sure that when I do it's definitely going to be a "wow" moment for me lol. I feel really good about this site, it has been an inspiration to read some of the stories on here. Thanks to everyone and congratulations to those of you who have gone thru this as well as Good Luck to those who are waiting.

Congrats on making the decision, newbod! Try not to feel guilty - I know it is hard! We deserve this after all we do! Your kids are the perfect age, too - pretty independent as far as potty, getting snacks, etc. I had my surgery Jan. 9th and today I'm post-op day 14 - feeling GREAT!!! Still swollen but no pain and am just taking my time recovering. I'm happy to answer any questions you have! :-)
