I just turned 40 1 week ago. my present from my husband was a full tummy tuck that I have wanted for awhile. I'm very nervous and excited about the big day. I must say this website has help so much with many of my concerns and questions I have that only a person whom has gone through it already. I've read so many stories and you ladies look great. I can't wait for my big day. I plan to post my before pics a week before my surgery.

Wish me luck!!!

Today I became upset because I was told several negative things about getting a tt. The worst comment was you could die. I'm so tired of my friends and family trying to change my mind.

I have 6 weeks before my surgery and they are losing it. Oh well, my mind is made up and I'm doing it...... Just needed to vent.

Ok,I now have 37 days until my surgery(yeah)....

Ok,I now have 37 days until my surgery(yeah). I'm becoming a little scared and nervous. The one thing I'm having a problem with already is constipation. Can anyone advise of a gental laxative.

Ok,I'm exactly (21 days) from my surgery. I'm so excited. I've taken pics but I'm still shy about posting them. My daughter said she was going to post them for me. I guess I will pack my bag next week. I do have a question? Since I'm having a full tt with lipo and muscle repair is 8 weeks enough off?

I can't believe it's been 4 days since my surgery. I'm so pleased with the outcome. I'm still swollen and my tubes are still in until the 18th, but it was well worth the money and time.

I even took a shower today : )
I thank this site for all the information and the people who has helped through the journey.

Today I'm 12 post op and my healing process is going great now that my tubes are out. I'm still swollen and bruised but the results so far are great. I was able to get into my size 6 jeans, which means I'm going to be a lot smaller once the swell hell leaves! Believe me when I say money well spent.

Ladies who are having second thoughts, what is normal. I even had them. But don't allow your negative fears keep you from being happy!! This website is the best and I love everyone I've become distance friends with.

I'm really looking forward to the trip to Tennessee with some of the ladies from this website thats being planned.

Ok, today I'm 18 days post op and my new bikini is here.
I'm swollen somewhat but my daughter and friends are amazed!!!
I will post pic later on after i get home from the gym.

Today is week 3 since my surgery. I have to say I'm loving the changes my body is doing. I'm still swollen and my scare is just about scab free. I've started my 30 min massage rub on the scar with cocoa butter. I'm going to post my 3 week pictures in my new bikini tomorrow. I'm so happy with the results. No muffin top or a single stretch mark!

This was the best 40th bday present I could have gotten. I have started my training again. Slowly I've started doing my 30 minute walk and simply arms workout. next week I will up my game just a little more.

Tomorrow will be my one month anniversary and...

Tomorrow will be my one month anniversary and I'm very pleased with the results as I continue to heal.Today I went shopping for a pair of slack and I'm happy to say I am a size 6 with swelling ;)

My best friend couldnt believe her eyes on how small I have gotten along with my tummy is so flat, tight, and stretch mark free.

I've also started a slow run and it felt great along with 25 push ups! I'm still healing and my scar continues to look good. I'm about to start using my cocoa 3 times a day.
