Week thank God anyways so far I can move around good just being hunch over sucks I don't go out at all don't want ppl looking LOL I'm still vary swollen my sides front all that but so far looking amazing for 5 weeks i can't believe this is my stomach crazy and exciting to see it change every day .I also had lipo on my flanks and sides I would say out of the whole surgery the lipo hurt the most its vary hard to get comfortable there is no sleeping during the first. Couple of days with out meds and even that don't do justice lol walking with out help took me about a week In A half I had to sit down often u can only walk so much without pain in your back making u have to sit and rest I had my drains took out on my 10 the day in.. witch made it so much more better with out that thing in my side. So today its been 5 weeks 1 day ill keep u all update I am taking monthly pix I put up my before and then my 10 day when I got my drain out and a 1 month and what my incision scar looks like so far I will put up a 2 month when I hit tat mark

Another day at the gym feels good to be working out and know that I was really supposed to be getting these results but just had that fat in the way it's nice to know all the hard work is paying off so even though you girls get the surgery you gotta know that you have to put in the work in afterwards keep it up workout stay active whatever it takes... because it only gets better it really does you think yu look good after but you will look amazing with a little bit more hard work at the gym and just staying active so get that motivation and push your self to only look better and feel better ..any questions about my surgery I will be more then happy to answer our questions on my doctor...i will add new pix in about a month started a new lifting and eating routine so I should be no more lean and toned out in the pictures when the time comes then you guys can let me know what you think
