So yesterday I brought my vitamin C and multi vitamins and stool softners. Today I went to 5th n Wyoming to get my spanx/ girdle / shaper garment it cost me $150. She asked me where was I going to have my surgery done at I told her Dr Gabay she said oh ok he does a lot of surgeries because everyone comes to her to buy there garments. I asked het has anyone complained out him . She said no not really? But the she said that the only people that complain is the ones who get surgery abd has very high expectations in which it takes times but they wanted quick results. Otherwise she was very helpful and nice. She also sales other things like cream and gel to help with bruising diet supplements ect .She was very nice and informative. She told me to eat right and keep working out .

Thanks honey . I wish you well with your surgery. It's not as bad as everyone make it out to be . Iam sure your going to love your new transformation. Keep in mind right after the surgery start eating healthy and as soon as your incision heals and your dr gives you the ok start doing crunching at night before bed and always always wear your garment. Just a Lil bit of advice that was given to me before my surgery. Please keep me posted and make sure you post some pics. Again good luck

Trust me you'll be ripped in 30 days

Wow, do post! I was afraid to take any pills since I'm 2 months pre op....my pre surgery packet said to stop them now (if I were taking any) so I've been just working out, but I really want to lose 30lbs before surgery...seems I'm at a stand still! Ugh!!
  • Reply
Yeah I took the pills for a month in which I stopped about 3 weeks before my surgery . The good thing is that I've maintained my weight and more weight loss with out them but the jump start helps . Also juicing is very good to do with a cleanse.
