So nervous but also SO excited! I am 27 and very overweight, at 214 lbs right now, but I am well proportioned. I have tried many things to get weight off and I think this will help give me the boost I need. I've learned that I will be getting 8 quarts taken out of me and hope the results will be noticable.......

have you done all of your research, specifically, about what happens when you have large areas done and the weight comes back? it will come back in different spots. Also, is your surgeon board certified? you don't want a botched lipo job with unevenness, asymmetry, lumps, weird indentations, etc. please read up on this. there are several articles that state that the fat will come back not be be distributed the same or could even be visercal fat within your body that exercise and dieting can hardly remove.

Be sure t have someone with you for the first day to help you up and down from bed. Start taking Arnica Montana pellets 3 days before and continue after surgery. It REALLY helps with bruising and swelling. I had hardly and bruising and even though I am swollen my measurements have not changed which means once the swelling goes down I should notice a difference. Yay! Also, elevate your legs when you are in bed. Good luck girl! Don't worry, it will be hard the first few days but it does get better. I am Day 7 and what a difference from day 3.

Had my pre-surgical appointment over the weekend. Met with the nurse (Christine) who has a lot of good reviews online, as well as my doc. A lot of people say she's very sweet and helpful, makes them more at ease...I personally didn't feel any warm vibes from her during my apt. She was kind of all about telling me what was going to happen the day of surgery real quick and then asked me to basically sign my life away on all the forms. I don't know if she was having a busy day or whatnot but I really hope she's a little more supportive the day of my surgery. She suggested taking iron pills so I got on them right away....10 days until my big day!

Hey guys! I know I've been horrible with updating, sorry! It's been going well I'm just waiting on more results, I know it will take time...Got a lifetime fitness membership over the weekend and started walking and its going good. I'm not sure if its from the surgery or just eating better but I feel like my metabolism is faster, which is very good! Does anyone know if this could be true or if I'm just imagining things? lol

Girl, yes! Bug difference! Looks like a new body already... I'm going back for the 2nd time in June. I had soo much fat on just my abs, they couldn't legally take it all out one time. But I can tell a big difference on you
