Welcome!  I am so glad you joined us here on RealSelf.  Please do tell how you found us.

That's an amazing weight loss and you should be very proud of yourself.  Good job!   I also follow the WW program and love it.  

So just a few more days to go and you will have your new tummy.  I am looking forward to following your journey and will be watching for your updates.  

Go crazy with the house project this weekend and get all ready to go.  Keep us up to date.

Hi I'm B.J.
and while surfing for photos of TT's I came across the site.

I'm schedule for my TT on the 29th of the month. I've debated with myself for years about doing this and I've finally decided to do something that will make me happier about myself and that will be having a visually appealing middle again in my life.

I'm scared, nervous and happy all at the same time and just looking forward to seeing myself when everything is said and done.

You'll be fine. Just stay on top of your meds. I'm 3 weeks post op and was afraid to say how well I was doing. Just came back from my Post op appt, and all is well. Scar is healed, belly button is healed. Very minimal swelling. Congrats on your TT. Enjoy the flatlands!!
