MONTH END UPDATE WITH PIC.

Well I've been reading everybody post everyday all...

Well I've been reading everybody post everyday all day and all night..from my phone to my computer...love seeing the positive results, the unsure of progress, and excitement of yall journey. So let me give you a little insight of me..well I'm a mother of 5 beautiful children, married to the most supportive husband of 12 years 5"11 245 lbs (carry well sometimes..lol)...I have a good life, can't complain..me and my husband enjoy life to the fullness. We take a separate vacation from the kids so that we can enjoy our private times. We started talking about this procedures for over 2 years now. I was surprised how supportive he has been but then again, nothing surprieses me when it comes to him. He always put me first, regardless...and I truly love him for that...So over the years, I've gain/loss weight but no matter how hard I did cardio workout, I couldn't shed the tummy. So it was my hubby that suggested this procedure. After so much research and going to a consultation, I was like "hell yes".. It so depressing to want to look your best but have a body that doesn't..so WE are going for it...Yep..and I'm scared shitless..lol..I haven't brought any new clothes within the last 2 months...I'm saving all of my shopping for our vacation in June.

This website has been so helpful with all the questions and concerns...I'm 48 hrs away from this life changing event and I'M READY...

Oh I forgot..I'm having a liposuction of my hips..

Well this weekend has been ok. I got out a couple of times and enjoyed the family. Still trying to find that good sleep position but overall I'm ok. Tried on a new dress that was pre TT and it looks really good on me. I'm trying to wait and be patient with the results but I know that it takes time. The swelling is the worst part of waiting. I go to the dr tomorrow to have my staples removed. I've been having some drainage in one area so I don't think that he will removal all of them which is fine. I go on vacation in June and I'm ready...Overall, I'm still happy with my results being week 2 since my surgery. Thanks for all the comments. I feels great to have such a nice and wonderful TT family on your side...Til next week..Oh I did update one pic. Next week, I 'm going up with clothes on...lol Peace :)
You look great!

Hello my tt ladies. .life has been good..no...

Hello my tt ladies. .life has been good..no complications. My only down is this swelling. .its crazy. What bothers me the most is the swelling under my breast? I hate it.. can I liposuction that? Lol. I had alot my swelling around my scar n the reason for that was my intake of powerade n garadae. Yall they are full of sodium so no more of them. I was drinking them (32 oz) 3 or 4 a day..just killing myself with sodium. Lol.

I went to a party last Saturday. Didnt dance just chilled at the bar but I must say I was stunning in my dress that wad a xlarge instead of 1 xlarge. .man it felt good to see how my husband was checking me out.

I still get tried n I listen to my body..when I get that tightness. .I go n chill. I want a full recovery.

How long for you see the results of liposuction? I think I need more..lol. .

When back to work I go..I will up load a pic now

Kisses...

Well ladies, this lady here is very happy with my progress. It's a patience process but I'm 150% in. I've been walking 2 miles everyday ( I'm headed when I'm finished with this), watching what I eat (haven't had sodas in 3 weeks), and just enjoying LIFE. The support that I get from my husband is unbelieveable. I know that I bugs him by constantly asking "Do you see a difference today"? lol..He's such a team player. I go for my 1 month post op (more like a month and 3 days) later next week and I'm excited to talk with my PS. My energy level is coming up. But I do listen to my body...I sit down and rest when I know that I'm pushing it...I'm sleeping great on both sides and through out the night. Well, I'm going to update a new pic. Enjoy and thanks for all the support...Kisses
so happy to hear you are doing great and so positive...results are wonderful...

This week has been uneventful. I workout everyday with my 2 miles walk. I go to the PS next week, hopefully I can start with Zumba. I really want to use a personal trainer to get in better shape but I will be patience. I've brought another CG, from large to medium so that's good. I really don't have must to update. I'm ready for lose more weight. So enjoy your day and your flat tummy..

STILL HAPPY!

I know it's been a while since I've updated but things are going great. My belly surroundings are still numb. I just came back from vacation and I experienced some swelling and pains from the all day activites that I endure for 8 days all day and all night...but I enjoyed myself. I went from a xl to large in dress. I was working out but I kind of lack off a bit with working but I plan on getting back on it. My husband is still supportive and loving this body everyday...I will post pic with this post.. Love!!!
I will be seeing Dr. Knight this month for a TT, lipo on arms, legs, and knees, and a breast lift with small implants above the muscle...I am (just turned 23) I work in EMS so a lot of heavy lifting patients regularly yikes! So scared I will "pop" an implant as I know multiple ladies in EMS who have. I'm 5'2" and 148lbs. I have had mixed reviews about Dr. Knight, what was your opinion of the work itself? I work in the medical field so I am terrified of a PE (pulmonary embolism) or surgery gone wrong, I see it regularly. Any advice of what were the best ways to keep moving as much as possible after surgery? I will be in surgery for 4 hours and out of work 4-6 week with minimal lifting when I return (ya right). Please any advice on Dr. Knight or any remedies you found useful let me know! Sorry for the long message, I'm 14 days from surgery and scared to death. Also going to miss out on trick or treating with my 2 year old but hoping the surgery will be worth it. Thanks
