I have battled my weight most of my life. I am always on some kind of new health kick or diet plan. Weight watchers, south beach, low carb no carb. I have done it all. I exercise all the time and eat pretty healthy, comparied to all my friends who by the way are thin..
I feel for the first time in my life I have found a balance with diet and exercise to achieve my goal. I take spin and muscle classes weekly and run and yoga when I can squeeze it in. I am addicted to the gym, I have a great club that my girls (6 and 3) love and have grown up going to their daycare. I cannot function correctly without my regular workouts.
After my second daughter I have busted my butt getting back to pre pregnancy shape and I cannot do anything about my giggly,loose tummy. I have worked with a trainer and tried everything to get that area in shape. It frustrates me that it keeps me from my goal and makes me made when I have physical limitations due to the hang or the sag when doing workout moves in yoga.
I am a working mom who is a super mom. I am hardly ever taking time for myself. Everyone always comes first. I seem to amaze my family and friends all the time with what I can do in a day! (I'm not bragging just painting a picture) having this surgery is probly the most selfish thing I have done. The cost of it and the recovery that will affect my family is what is the hardest for me to give in too. My husband and I have been together for 15 years and he is supportive and has no problems with this . I have a lot of friends who support me and a few who have already had it done.
My mom is staying with us for at least the first week, she isn't a fan of this procedure but supports my decision. She is my rock, I know she will be able to help me out while I am down. I am fortunate in that way..:) I would have to say the biggest issue for me is fighting myself with the what ifs about liking the results and what kind of impact it will have on my girls while I am healing. I know I deserve this, I have worked hard and know I can maintain the results. I just hope I am one of the ones that has a good turn out. I am Ready for this to be over.
