Hello ladies!!! My name is Salina. I just turned 32 on the 27th of December. Im married with 3 children(13,11,and soon to be 5). Im 5'0 and currently weigh 175lbs. My goal is to get down to 160 by the end of March. Joined a bootcamp class in September, and its the bomb!!!! I've a small waist and a butt most women die for(which I've always had) just gotta get the stomach tight. Im extremely excited about my sx. And i can't wait until April;)) i'll try to post some before pic. Im new to this,lol.

with the weightgain, i still have a nice shape, and butt has gotten bigger:( in September i joined a boot camp class, and I've lost 25lbs.

Hi Salina, Kudos Boot camp...major work out...here they only have them at like 5 am and I am not a morning person..I have been doing Zumba and walking when it is not freeze @#% cold outside. I hope to lose the 15lbs before mine but if not oh well...I will still look better than now. I am so excited ... I have started major house cleaning to keep me occupied. I am stuck with the March date unless he has a cancellation. Did you figure out how to post pic's...I will tell it is rather embarrassing posting but these other wonderful ladies did it so I did. Best of luck on your weight.

Omg today was great. Hubby took me out to make a couple of runs. Did some shopping. It really felt good to get out and get some fresh air, even though the weather wasn't so great. Was able to tolerate walking for longer periods of time!!! On the road to recovery;))

you look phatabalous.... did you have lipo in the back I wonder if I need to ask for that or is that additional charges. want hurt to ask lol
  • Reply
Thank you!!! I did have lipo to my sides and back. This was included in my price. You should ask, i think it makes the tummy tuck enhanced. Don't really wanna have a flat smooth belly... and flats rolls on the waist and back. Just my opinion!!
Right. I no when I spoke to the PS last he did say he would do the side but I'm going to ask about the back and I want a lower lift but I'm not sure how that looks.

Hey girls,hope all is well with everyone....

Hey girls,hope all is well with everyone. Yesterday was 2 wk po. Went to see my PS today, for the 2 wk po visit. Drains were removed today, yaaaaay!!! What a weird feeling. Didn't think it was that much tube inside my stomach. Just glad that's over. Standing almost 100%, overall i feel great!!!!!! Loving my new body. So ready for the weather to change, so i can put some dresses on. Oh yeah, they ain't ready!!!!!

Hey girl, thanks!
Thanks girlie!
You are looking guuttt! Lol. I was getting ready to ask what all you had done and saw that I asked this already. I'm really debating if I should add lipo to my back and flanks or just hope for the best and work it off after the TT. Since you've lost 20 lbs since the surgery, do you think you could have gone without? We have a similar shape and I'm 5'2 at 178 lbs right now. Mostly muscle but I got a lot of fat hiding them. Decisions, decisions!

More lipo

Hey ladies hope all is well. Went in last Tuesday for a f/u with my surgeon. And she wants to do in office lipi. She said I have some access fat in the stomach. WTF. I thought I looked great. Okay, Dr Bryan. Scheduled for December 10th. PS. No extra cost. I'll keep you guys posted. Happy holidays; ))
