Trying to Reach my Goal Weight Before Surgery VERY NERVOUS! - San Antonio, TX

Hi, I'm new to this. Let me start by saying I am 40 years old. I have four children. I have been lots of research, and wondering if I'm making the right decision due to the cost of the surgery. I went or my consult in December 2012, I will be getting a tummy tuck, lipo of flanks and love handles and a breast lift for 14,000 but I do need to go back for a second consult. When I went in dec I was currently nursing so I had to wait 6 months after I stopped. I really am excited but nervous. Wondering will all be worth it??? I still look like I'm pregnant and my breast are saggy. Would really like implants but I will see what dr recommends when I go back to my second consult. I also weight 170 so I been going to the gym to loose weight really need to also work on my inner thighs. Reading everyone stories Its really exciting for y'all outcomes.. Can't wait for mine

Its been awhile that I have updated I have been having doubts about surgery should I shouldn't I. Just thinking of what I could do with all that money, for the kids add room to my house, buy my Volkswagen.... Ahhh!!! Oh well I know deep down this is what I want to feel comfortable in my clothes not have the love handles, looking like I'm pregnant. Well I am going to the gym 3x a week, also doing acupressure which in 3 weeks lost 10 pounds I'm at 160 now YES!! Still want to loose like 30 more pounds by my surgery date in July. I will be posting pics of how it looks now
