Ok.. Ladies!! So.. I don't even know where to start.!!! I'm 27 years old turning 28 in two weeks.. A mother of 2 beautiful girls.. 7 and 2. Like almost all of u I was really thin before having my first daughter I was between 125-130.. After her my heaviest was 175.!! We'll so I decided to get on a diet and went Down to 140. Six years later I got pregnant again and gain all the weight back!! :/ soo.. After a year I decided to get on a diet again and started to workout everyday.. By the time I knew it I was at 138.!! But gained 4 pounds this past 2 months.. Lol.. I keep telling myself that it's ok.. Good thing the holidays are over so that I can get back in track.!! Well long story short.. I've been considering a tummy tuck for a year now I went with 4 different doctors one here in Texas.. But the price was to high and saw the other 3 in Mexico.. I live just in the border from Mexico.. A small town named Roma Texas.!! Lol.. Ok.. I decided to go with Dr. Tomas Garcia Farias. I have not scheduled my surgery yet but I'm planning on doing it by the end of February or the beginning of March.. I'm nervous and excited.. I'm getting myself ready mentally and physically.. I have my husband support and I'm really grateful for that he is my rock.!! I would love your advise and tips to make my journey to the flat side a more pleasant and blessed recovery.! Thank you ladies I will keep u posted.!!!

OMG.. Ladies help me out here.!!! I don't know what to do.. I had make up my mind by choosing dr. Garacia.!! Well yesterday I went to another doctor and I loved him too.!! Now I'm confused..

I'm so depressed right now.!!! :( my husband is being so annoying!!! I don't know what to do?? He's telling me he's scared and don't want for me to get my surgery done.!!! And of course money wise.!!! I hate it we had already talked about it.!!! Why is he being like this??? I hate that I can support him in anything I'm always there for him.. And now that it's my turn now that I need him the most.. I want his support and his company his being an ass.!!! I've been eating like crazy I don't care about my diet anymore it's like I don't care if I get fat again.!!! :( it's so deppresing I'm even getting drunk right now.!! This is not what I expected not from him.!!! :( I even what to cry right now as I'm writing.!! :'(

Hi girl i am too having my TT on the 26 in Mexico. I was a bit discouraged after speaking to my primary doctor she straight out tools me i could die! I know and understand the risks however I'm bummed. How are you till this day feeling? Were you able to get any blood tests. Doctors here don't want to do it because of liability and laws.

I just told my doctor I was doing my yearly checkup and if I could have copies of my blood work. Don't let them discourage you the doctors also study in the us. And are just as experienced as any other doctor.

Pililo I bet your getting excited. I just finished my fourth week and finally seeing my results. I was starting to get discouraged. But now everyone is noticing. I'm glad it was a gradual difference no one noticed that I had surgery. So now that I'm in my 5th week I'm down a size smaller and can tell the new form my body is taking. I have been eating healthy and also herbalife meal replacements.

Yes that was the hospital it's nice and clean there. Not sure on the anesthesia but I was out but I woke up at the end when he was sewing my arm. I didn't feel no pain. He asked if I wanted to be put back out but I told him no and was awake the last 15 minutes.

Ok Pililo. First, stop with the alcohol, then the food, and now re-focus. Its about YOU - loving you and staying healthy for you and your family. Dont jeopardize your efforts. It will get better with your husband. More so if he sees that you are determined to go through with the surgery. He is scared and his reaction is very normal. Talked out again when both are calmed and not under the influence of alcohol. My hubby was very supportive until the night before I left to Mexico. He had all this excuses (some ridiculous) as if I was going to back out the night before. Stayed in Mexico two days and when I returned he was fine again. In fact he would help me shower and bandage me every night. This too shall pass. Ok.

Hi Pililo. You'll do fine. You wont even remember when you fall asleep with the anesthesia. Stay relaxed...if you are too anxious ask your doctor to give give you something to calm down. I had my TT 7 weeks ago in Tijuana and so far all is going well - healing has been very slow but well. Good luck :)
