I am a mom of 3 and have always been active and athletic but after gaining 60+ lbs with each of my kids I kind of let myself go after the first born not to mention many miscarriages and not losing the weight from those I was getting big! 5'7" and 180 I finally decided I had to do something about it so I started tracking my calories and bought a membership to the local gym and in a few months I was down to 150 and a size 7/8 which was fine with me of course I wouldn't mind being a size 5 lol who wouldn't! So a couople years of that and I became pregnant with my 2nd and I worked out until 2 weeks before birth and I mean high impact workouts, I'm very competetive so when I do something I go at it full force!

Well I lost most of the weight all but 10lbs then surprise surprise........... pregnant again!! I was still breastfeeding and my little one was only 11 months. I didn't know I was pregnant until 9 week because I was spotting and thought it was my period! Well since my menstrual cycle had been short and "different" and only came after sex I decided to take a test which confirmed it. So I went to the dr still spotting off and on, I thought I was going to miscarry. She had told me to take it easy and no working out :( I did not miscarry which was a shock to me because after 7 of them it's somewhat expected.

I gained 70 lbs this pregnancy and Jan 18th 2011 popped out an 8lb 13 oz baby boy. Oh and my husband went and had a vsectomy on our way home from the hospital. Fast forward to may 2012, I am a very busy photographer and have not had or made time to get back to the gym. I had a session with a high profile client and wanted to get a new outfit, so before the session I went shopping and ended up buying a sized 12 which was one size up( I should be losing weight not gaining). That was it, enough was enough. I went back to the gym and started counting calories again. I started at 198 and by october i was down to 157 and as a surprise my husband set up a consult for a mommy makeover because I have been working my butt off and he wanted to reward me :) Well since my consult I have gained a few pounds due to some steroids I had to take for my lungs and it's frustrating but I will get back down soon I'm sure. Surgery is in 3 weeks and I keep having nightmares lol, I know it's just me being anxious.... I found a dr that is highly recommended so I shouldn't worry so much

Day three and feeling better than expected! The day of surgery and the day after were the worst for me and honestly my breasts hurt worse than my tummy! I had a scare last night with shortness of breath and went to the er and i was a little tachy when i arrived and then they did tests to make sure there wasn't any clots and then i kind of calmed down. Here is a breast shot he put in the 420cc and i love a good they already look! I didn't dare take my compression garment off cause honestly I'm scared too even though i keep peeing on it and i just want to wash it. I will keep you all posted as best as i can

I am doing amazing! I did get a seroma I think I felt so good I over did it! but I've been taking it easy, they drained it and only got 5cc's out so I'm hoping my body will absorb it on it's own with that little of amount. I will post more photos soonI am doing amazing!

YES!!! I keep having nightmares lol! But I know it's probably just my anxiety about the "Big" operation! I've never been put under so that's what's making me nervous well and the pain afterwards lol!
