I decided in February after taking a weekend getaway with my family to a resort that had an indoor pool that it was really time for me to do something about my tummy. I'm tired of walking around sucking in my gut...it's just exhausting. Plus I was more worried about the dimples on my saddle bags. I have no idea how to suck them in!! I just covered them up with a pair of bathing shorts. Not happy at all.
I'm 39, 5'5" and weigh anywhere between 140-150. Right now I’m at my highest because I'm enjoying my last couple of weeks and eating/drinking whatever I like. I use to be very disciplined. I was a U.S. Marine in my younger years and stayed rather active up until about 4 years ago when I gave birth to my last child. I don't know if it’s my age or premenopausal or BOTH! but, I can't lose the wait like I use too and I certainly don't look or feel the way I use too.
I'm very excited to share my journey with everyone!! I will post some before pictures soon before the big day.
Well here are my before pics. These were taking on...

I'm so excited but the anxiety of the "what ifs" are killing me. I'm really scared of the surgery itself. I'm fine with the post part...the pain and the healing...because it will all pass. just can't get the being put to sleep part out of my mind. Very scared!!!
Yes, I have been eating everything. There is no holds bar right now when it comes to my food intake. Thankfully, I have a great husband that does not allow alot of junk food in the house. Usually everything is organic in my house or pretty close to it. No artificial stuff, No fructose corn syrup, DEF NO SODA's in my house (although I had one at lunch yesterday - husband does not know I went to Taco Bell), All of the juices the kids drink have to be 100% fruit juice. Are kids are very healthy and seldom get sick. So I KNOW that this will be it for me (eating bad), when I get home my husband will make sure of it :)
So everyone that I have told (which is basically everyone I talk too - because I'm just too excited to keep it in) is very excited for me. I have found out that 85% of my friends have been contemplating the same procedure. So I have had a lot of support from my friends. Family on the other hand - not so supportive and I do not mean that in a bad way. My dad really wants me to think about it. When I told him that its paid for and scheduled, you could tell that he was upset. My dad is very natural person too. He is 65 and still works out. He also eats very healthy. My mom really hasn't said to much except why, your skinny now. So, I'm not sure her take. My sister who will be 30 this year didn't show any excitement for me, so not sure about her either. My brother who lives out in Vegas who fought in the UFC and WAS married to a women who had alot done to her said "Great you two can join each other" in a very sarcastic way. So not sure how to read him either. My lil sis who is 27 seems to be happy she said she wishes she could get boobs. She also said if I need anyone to come over and help out she would so that was nice.
All in all I'm excited and can't wait to show off the new me when its all done. ttys.
I'm reading a lot of reviews and I feel a little...

Looking forward to the Holiday weekend. The family is heading to the beach. Not looking forward to putting a bathing suit on :(. Woudl you want to see the below bod in a bathing suit. I'm really flabby. I'm hoping after the surgery to get back into the Gym 24/7 and be obsessed once again with my body and keeping it is shape.
So ready for 6/6.. I don't think it can get here fast enough.

3. Take Vitamin C
4. Rest ***do not over do it while recovering***; and last but most important
5. I'm going to look AMAZING!!! lol.
Stil eating pretty healthy. Out of Milk this morning so I didn't get to have a bowl of Special K (mmmm). Just a cup of protein shake. I'll have my coffee and granola bar shortly. Not sure what to do for lunch since I left it on the kitchen table. It was salad. Maybe go down stairs to the cafeteria and pay for a salad. So trying to save my money though...uuugggg.
OMG...I did not sleep well at all last night. My...

I was late getting to my surgery! I had left my toenail polish on (was totally flipped out about this) and I forgot my meds. HOLY CANOLI!!!
My upcoming surgery is really playing a number on my mind. But GREAT NEWS...my sister and brother-in-law are letting me use their recliner. So my hubby and BIL will bring it over next weekend. Very pleased with this and happy that I will be some what comfy.
Looking forward to the Holiday W/E!!! Not looking forward to putting a bathing suit on this weekend. Hope to take more pics and post after the weekend. To everyone Pre and Post.....HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. GOD BLESS

Lots of preparing. Need to get the recliner to the house from my sisters. Need to buy a shower curtain for underneath of me so I don't ruin anything..need to get stockings and have my hubby find some old towels. I'm not worried about a clean house because everyone has certain chores and my oldest will pick up the slack along with my hubby. DId I ever mention that I have the greatest kids ever!!!! Especially my 10 year old. She is an old soul, who is the second mom in the house. If I am unable to do something she takes the initiative and just does it. She is amazing and I thank god for her and her brother everyday :)
I stare in the mirror at my tub of jelly and think to myself...self, I think I'm SEXY, but after I'LL KNOW I'M SEXY!!!!! lol. Nothing wrong with having a big head, right?? I'm paying for it!!! Happy Humpday everyone!!
My time for surgery is in......11:30 am, I am to...

Next week this time...I'll be on the flat side!!
