Anxious, Nervous, and EXCITED!!! - Scottsdale, AZ

I'm a 34 year old stay-at-home wife and mother of three ages 10, 4, and 1. I can't wait to get my tt and lipo done!!!! After having my kids my stomach did not go back to the way it was before. I have so much extra skin it looks like pizza dough. YUCK!!! Anyway...I never do anything for myself. I'm always making excuses but this time it's different. My husband and I decided that the kids we have are enough so I started toying with the idea of having tt and lipo. My husband is very supportive and says if it'll make me happy then he's happy. After researching (which by the way became sort of an obsession) I decided that I deserved this. There is still a little part of me that is trying to justify spending so much money on myself but I figure that if doing this will make me happier then that could only benefit not only myself but my husband and kids too. After calling the PS and scheduling my appointment I couldn't believe I did it. I'm still like "Holy cow this is really happening!!!" I also find myself wanting to diet and exercise a lot more. I guess it's kinda like cleaning before the cleaning lady comes....Well that's what I hear since I'm the cleaning lady at my house lol. What's crazy is I'm not really nervous about the actual procedure but about my kids and my husband. I have a lot of family and friends that are going to help me during my recovery so in my heart I know everything will be ok. I guess I'm just used to taking care of everything and everyone. I'M SO EXCITED!!!! Oh and I'll get some before photos up soon....not looking forward to doing that but I know it helps. I love reading and looking at everyone's photos. This site has helped me so much!

So 5 more days until my pre-op appointment. I'm still really excited about my tt and lipo but am also getting a little scared. I noticed that I've been dwelling a little too much on what could go wrong instead of the positive. I'm assuming this is normal. It's like I go thru waves of being so stinkin excited to thinking what the heck am I doing. One of my questions for the PS is how soon can I start taking diet pills after the surgery? I've read several different comments about people wanting to eat a lot at a certain point of their of their recovery. I want to try and prevent that if possible. Has anyone else thought about this? Also, are you supposed to shave your VJ completely before or is that something that the PS does? I just want to be prepared I guess. LOL

Well I have 3 more days until I see my PS about my tt and lipo on June 11th. I have so many questions for him. This site has helped me so much! I'm getting really excited and nervous. I really wanted to lose more weight but found myself nesting and getting things ready for my kids and my husband. I know I'm gonna be out of commission for awhile so I want everything to be done so I won't have too much guilt for being laid up in bed. My husband and son are great! They are excited for me and are ready to take care of me. I'm worried about my little ones. They are 4 and 19months old. I know it's going to be tough but I want this sooo bad. Hopefully, time will fly by and I will be looking back telling myself how crazy I was not to do this sooner. I plan on posting some before pictures soon once I muster up enough courage. LOL

Hi All! I made it to the other flat side! I'm 4 days post op and I feel great so far. Everyday I can feel a great deal of progress being made as far as pain and mobility. I'm still super swollen but not enough that I can't see a difference. My back is tender from the lipo and burns a bit at times but nothing to complain about. In fact, I'm sort of nervous that I'm feeling so good. Part of me is like did the dr not get everything cuz a lot was there. LOL I just think it helped that I expected the worse and am pleasantly surprised. The Dr said he took off 8lbs of skin and fat from my abdominal area. I didn't realize how heavy my stomach felt until it was gone. Sort of a weird sensation. I want to thank everyone for all of the love and support. I see my ps on Tuesday and will update then.
