Overweight, maybe even obese & I'm hearing different things from diff ppl regarding what can & cannot be done b/c of my weight. I don't want anything to stand between me & my dunk lol. If anyone can help with letting me know what to expect pls fee free. Thx! :-)

SO I'VE BEEN AWAY FOR A WHILE, I DECIDED NOT TO DO...

SO I'VE BEEN AWAY FOR A WHILE, I DECIDED NOT TO DO THE SURGERY BECAUSE I WAS FEELING GUILTY ABOUT THE AMOUT OF MONEY THAT WAS BEING SPENT, BUT OF COURSE THAT DIDN'T LAST LONG. I SAT DOWN, CAME UP WITH A FINANCIAL PLAN & I'M GOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. MY CREDIT SUCKS, SO I'LL HAVE TO PAY IN CASH SMH...BY THE WAY IF ANY OF YOU KNOW HOW I CAN GET A LARGE LOAN WITH BLEMISHED CREDIT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! ANYWHO, I'M SOOOOO EXCITED!!!! I PLAN ON LOSING AS MUCH WEIGHT AS 6 MTHS ALLOWS! SO FAR, HAVEN'T BEEN DIETING OR EXERCISING, BUT I WILL START ON THE 1ST OF JANUARY & I'M ADDING ON AN EXTRA DAY AT WORK. MICHELLE (PATIENT COORDINATOR FOR DR J) GAVE ME A LINK WHO EXCEPTS CUSTOMERS WITH POOR CREDIT, BUT ONLY OFFER $3,000. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO TO PASS TIME. I LOVE REAL SELF, BUT IT ONLY MAKES THINGS WORSE. I FIND MYSELF ON HERE FOR HRS @ A TIME. IT'S 7:08AM, I SHOULD BE ASLEEP.

So I'm watching the real house wives of Atlanta...

So I'm watching the real house wives of Atlanta marathon & lookin @ all these flat tummies & big atl butts is making me anxious, I get SUPER excited when I think about how my bbl is going to change my life! I've been thinking about lipo ever since I had my 2nd baby, who is now 10 mths, I've done very extensive research & I'm beyond ready. i'm 25, married, separated & ready for a new beginning. July is a long time for me, but it gives me time to lose an ample amt of weight. I think i'm going to start a diet tomorrow. That'll give me something to do to pass time. A lot of my "so called" friends are throwing shade @ me about the procedure & my mom doesn't really love the idea, so I'm kinda doing this alone & could really use some support. I will post pics soon...

 

my date with dr jimerson is not for july 25th it's for july 18! not much of a difference, but a whole week sooner, so that's good news! also, i've told a few ppl that the prices were goin up this mth, that was wrong also, the prices won't increase til next mth (feb 2013), any ladies who def knw that they are going with jimerson, if you have your down payment now, you should pay it now to lock in your dates & rates before feb when they increase. i went to the link that was given to me by one of dr j's consultants & healthcare finance direct will finance half of the surgery up to $5000, no interest & give you  2 yrs to pay it back with a $10/ mth service charge. also, dr j only excepts medical financing, healthcare finance direct & care credit. no person left behind, or whatever its called is not excepted, so don't apply if you're goin with dr j. i think that's about it!

OK LADIES, I WAS TOLD I WILL HAVE EXTRA SKIN AFTER...

OK LADIES, I WAS TOLD I WILL HAVE EXTRA SKIN AFTER MY LIPO. VERY BAD NEWS, I GUESS I SHOULD'VE FIGURED I WOULD, I WAS JUST BEING UNREALISTIC. ANYWAYS, I'M STILL GETTIN THE PROCEDURE, UNSURE ABOUT THE EXTRA SKIN, BUT WILL DEFINITELY GET IT REMOVED IF MY FINANCES ALLOW. RIGHT NOW IM IN THE PROCESS OF LOOKING FOR A GOOD, NATURAL APPETITE SUPPRESSANT THAT WON'T CAUSE JITTERNESS. I'VE REALLY BEEN TRYING TO DIET, BUT IT'S HARD, CAN'T DO IT ON MY OWN.

Ok ladies, I've decided to switch doctors....

Ok ladies, I've decided to switch doctors. Jimerson gives big giganto donkey booties & that's what I want, but i'll also need mini tuck, so it's just outta my range & thinkin about it stresses me out to the max, soooo I came up with a solution =) I'm going to do my procedures with Dr. Yily. It's not confirmed yet, but if I continue to see good feedback from research (which I've become completely obsessed with) & she agrees to do it I am DEFINITELY going for it! Her butts aren't as big as I like, but I'm sure we can negotiate something lol. Her prices are PHENOMINAL!!! Her prices are what originally got my attention, I'm just a little concerned because we all know you get what you pay for. On top of that I haven't seen any after pics of heavier patients & I'm HEAVY =-/ I'll post pics soon, their pretty bad, but I know that these posts are a lot more interesting with pics. Anywho, back to stalking Dr. Yily...

So, I've finally decided to add pics to my review,...

So, I've finally decided to add pics to my review, simply because I think reviews with pics are more interesting. I didn't put nude ones cuz y'alll ain't ready fa dat, TRUST ME! LOL The pics are with a Columbian girdle aka compression garment, yes, I have about 5, all diff styles & yes I wear them everyday smh. The one I was wearing in the pic is actually about 3 years old & doesn't hold me in much at all, but I wore it, so y'all could get the full affect, and see the actual shape of my body. Anywho, I'm waiting on a real reply from Dr. Yily, I received an auto reply, but that's not what I was looking for lol. I'm gonna wait her out & see how she does on some of her FEB & MAR patients, plus I really need help finding out if she has worked on any plus sized women. Also, I've changed my mind once again. I will NOT be doing a bbl (unless I come across $15,000 within the next few months) lol. Here's why: I'm afraid that Yily won't have enough experience with large women like myself to do the bbl on me, I read up on all sorts of stuff, I'm 100% confident in Dr. J, however it'll be TOO expensive to get everything I want with him, so my plan now is to go to Yily for extreme sculpting with lipo & a mini tummy tuck, which should cost next to NOTHING, spend some time in the DR, it'll be my treat to myself for passing up on a nice ass lol & next year go to Dr J for my butt, since the fat will already be removed from my torso, i'll get my thighs or arms lipo'd & have it put into my hips & bootay. Since I've already made my deposit with Dr J, I'll just set my date out to July of 2014, & make sure that my price doesn't go up. Took me a long time to come to grips with not getting assed up this year, but right now it's my only option because trying to come up with an extra $4,000 by July was stressing me out FAREAL. If I go with Yily I can probably pay for everything with my taxes, which have already been filed & are being processed as we speak. I will be getting back $4,000 (which sucks MAJOR ass), but it's better than nothing. I plan on getting $3,000 from healthcare finance direct, if Yily can't do me for some reason, and the rest I will be paying in cash. As of now, I have a lil bit over a thousand saved up. Medical financing said that I can get approved with them as long as I get a co signer with a 600 credit score, please tell me why my husband is at a 599! lol ima still try with him lol. Anywayz, hopefully Yily will respond soon wth a quote & reassure me that working on my large body won't be an issue =) then I won't have to worry about financing anything. Until then I'll be saving & hoping & trynnah get dese thighs & arms in tip top condition 2 go with my soon to be flat tummy! Monday i'm callin Michelle from Dr. J's office to find out how much it is for lipo & mini tummy tuck & I will attempt to call Dr. Yily's office. I will keep y'all posted...TOOTLEZ!

Ok ladies it's Monday, my errand day. First on my...

Ok ladies it's Monday, my errand day. First on my list is to call Michelle, Dr. J's patient consultant & ask her how much is lipo without a bbl, I'm hoping it'll be in the $7000 range, but his prices so high, i'll be lucky if I still get it at $11,000. After that I will be phoning Dr. Yily to ask her what the business is. Lady I'm tryna spend money with you, you gotta move a bit faster or hire more help lol. Remember Dr. J is plan b right now, I'll be getting work done with him only if Yily can't do me, so I'll let Michelle know that I could possibly be changing my date & see if she has any good advice for that. Anyhow, just a quick lil update, will post in a lil bit to let y'all know the outcome with both =) I really do want my butt thought =( Maybe I should do the bbl & get the skin removed later...What do y'all think?

Update from yesterday's post: WANT THE GOOD OR BAD...

Update from yesterday's post: WANT THE GOOD OR BAD NEWS 1ST? GUESS IT DON'T MATTER LOL Ok, I called Dr. J's office & spoke with Michelle, she notified me that a mini tummy tuck is $5,800, there was some miscommunication between she & I because I was under the impression that the mini tummy tuck was $4,000 which was enough already. Apparently the "j tuck" is $4000. Lipo alone is $4000 + $900 for each additional area. Might as well get the mini tuck plus lipo because it equals out to the same price wen you add everything up which is $7700. I'll have that $ in hand soon, so minus my deposit & 2 or 3 hundred for paying in cash that would be about $7000 even. Das cool, but I wouldn't even be getting it til July, maybe a little sooner cuz I'm payin in cash, but I'm sure not too much sooner. Still haven't gotten in touch with Dr. Perry, but haven't tried since that one time, although I will make another attempt tmrw. Okay, now on to the bad news...Finally got a reply from Yily & it was bittersweet. She said
"The price for Tummy Tuck, fat grafting to buttock, BBL, liposuction of abdomen, armpit, back, flanks, waist is 4,000$USD." It also includes 1 compression garment, pre-operatory tests etc. This is absolutely AMAZING!!! I can pay that TODAY! lol It makes me so excited, so y'all prolly thinkin what's the problem huh? Dis heffa talkin bout I need to be 200 lbs to have the surgery for best results. I weigh damn near 300 lbs! It'll take me @ least 6 mths to lose that kinda weight. If ima wait dat long I might as well go with Jimerson. So I have some thinkin to do...I'm gon email Yily back & ask her would I still have to lose the weight if I choose not to do the bbl. I'll keep y'all posted, in the mean time I'll be dieting, hopin & prayin. Oh & before y'all start up ("y'all" meanin da ladies on here that think they're qualified to tell me info that only has meaning to me if it's coming from a medical Dr. or board certified plastic surgeon) I know I need to lose weight, it's easier said than done & there are plenty of docs willing to work on me at my current weight without having to lose a pound, Dr. J being one of them. I feel really confident with him & I trust his opinion, feelin some kinda way that he can do the work on me, but Yily can't. Maybe it's cuz Dr. J saw me in person & Yily saw me in a pic. Any other ladies in the 200+ club told this by Yily?

So I emailed Yily & back & asked her if she would...

So I emailed Yily & back & asked her if she would refuse to operate on me if I slightly above 200 lbs, that was a few days ago & I've yet to get a response, just patiently waiting. Also, I was not approved for medical financing, but they offered the no patient left behind, haven't excepted the offer yet, but I just might, they gave me 3 days to think about it. If the terms & conditions are right I just may use them for some dental work =) Will let y'all know how that goes.

Anyways, I purchased a membership for weight watchers, I'll be going to one of their meetings soon & some time next week I'm joining a gym, sad thing is, my job actually reimburses my gym membership as long as I go twice a week, I've been at my job 2 yrs & haven't stepped foot in a gym the whole 2 yrs smh sad, I know. So weight watchers, and the gym @ least 3 times a week, I should be able to lose something. My goal is to lose 20 lbs by May, that's very doable, when you break it down it's about 2 lbs a week, which is what's recommended. Wish me luck ladies!

Hey y'all! Just wanna update y'all on my situation...

Hey y'all! Just wanna update y'all on my situation. I have yet to receive a 2nd response from Yily which is REALLY turning me off. I mean, it's fa real been like 2 wks. I guess I can't be too mad her though, I been procrastinating myself lol. Still haven't started a diet & still haven't been to the gym smh...If l don't hear from Yily by Wenesday, Feb 17th, I am going to take that as a sign and move on. Ain't nobody got time for dat!

Also, I decided to go head & accept the no patient left behind offer & these fools never responded back! Maybe something's wrong with my email cuz I aint getting replies from anybody! lol

Sooooo, guess what? I spoke with the lovely Yira...

Sooooo, guess what? I spoke with the lovely Yira today & she was SUPER busy! I couldn't call her cell cuz the international service that I added to my phone allows me to make calls to the D.R. but only to landlines, not cell phones. Because of this, I called the office phone & asked for Yira & after speaking with 2 diff ppl & holding for about 7 mins I finally got her! She was nice & to the point. She answered all the questions that she could, but said that some things only Yily could answer, which is understandable. Anyhow, while she was talking to me the phone was ringing like crazy, she said she had 5 ppl on hold & her cell was ringing. I feel kinda bad for them, Yily really needs to hire more help.

Ok, so the call was placed @ 10:53am my time. I will let y'all know when Yily responds to me email & what she says. Yira said that she'll respond today. Keeping my fingers crossed, cuz there are things I need to know before I send money to a pay pal acct, book a $500 flight & buy all these damn supplies! lol
I gotta admit, speaking with Yira today got me excited all over again about this procedure, I was starting to give up on it, doubting Yily, doubting that fact that I need this flat stomach & azz, but I'm back on board! All in the mirror trynna see what it's gon look like lol.

UPDATE: IT'S 12:33AM, ALMOST 14 HRS SINCE I SPOKE...

UPDATE: IT'S 12:33AM, ALMOST 14 HRS SINCE I SPOKE WITH YIRA & STILL NOTHING. MAYBE I'M BEING IMPATIENT, BUT THEY BETTA QUIT PLAYIN WITH ME. NOW THAT I'M ABLE TO CALL, IMA START BLOWIN THEM LINES UP LOL I'M CALLIN FIRST THING IN THE MORNIN & PLAN ON CALLIN EVERYDAY AFTER THAT TIL I GET A RESPONSE.

MEDICAL FINANCING OFFERED ME THAT NO PATIENT LEFT BEHIND OFFER, BUT NEVER GOT BACK WITH ME, ANYBODY KNOW ANYTHING BOUT THAT??? I SURE HOPE THEY RESOND SOON, I'LL GET SOMETHING SMALL, THAT DOESN'T COST MUCH, THAT WAY I BUILD MY CREDIT & IMPROVE MY ALREADY DAPPER LOOKS WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK. ANYBODY INFO WOULD BE HELPFUL. THANKS!

I called Yira for the 2nd yesterday, I felt...

I called Yira for the 2nd yesterday, I felt rushed, but she knew exactly who I was, and said she hasn't forgot, but Dr. Yily has been very busy. She said I'lll have a response by Mon, we'll see ;-/ Anyways, I told her that I would like a May date, she didn't push for me to pay a deposit or anything, I'm getting the feelin that Yily aint really trynna work on me...

It's REALLY blowin me cuz I want this, I've been talkin bout it for mths now & now that I know it's an option, not getting the sx is not an option. Maybe I'm just being emotional, but I feel sad, and helpless. Guess some things just aint meant to be...

The email I've been waiting on since Feb...

The email I've been waiting on since Feb 8th>>>Sorry but I prefer not to operate. There are more complications while the patient is more obese. I do not want to be offended but I prefer to preserve their health first. I hope you understand this. I believe that health is more important than beauty.

It's official for me, I have to lose some weight! I know I've said it before, but this time it's fa real. I love that she was kinda blunt & straight forward & It's comforting to know that she is concerned for my well being. I don't feel sad anymore, I feel like that's what I needed to hear. I can choose to lose the weight or just not do the procedure, It's all up to me...

Oan thanks so much for all the kind words, you ladies are AMAZING! Really made me feel better at a time when I was upset.

He y'all! Haven't been updating as much as I'd...

He y'all! Haven't been updating as much as I'd like to, my laptop is completely destroyed =( and I hate doing anything from my phone. Anywho, those 6 lbs that I gained last mth, GONE! That's right, in one week I lost 8 lbs, I thought te scale was broken cuz strangely enough I'm not seeing it yet, I want my clothes to not fit & rings to start falling off lol, hopefully soon, that's where my motivation comes from. More good news! Yily sent me another email. Of course it's in espanol & being that my laptop is down, I have no way to translte the context. I'm dying to know what she's saying, dunno y, guess I'm just weird like that lol Anywayz, I will let y'all know as soon as I find out & I will keep y'all posted on my weight loss!!! Still super excited about my weightloss!!! 8 lbs, and I had a splurge day yesterday, 8 lbs! I've been working hard, so I expected ome weightloss, but maybe 4 lbs at the most, but not 8. Lol ok, I'm done.

Back at it!!

Hi everyone :) I have been MIA for quite some time. Honestly, I didn't have the funds when my surgery date rolled around, so I completely removed myself from the situation. I blocked all emails from real self & stopped logging onto the site, I was devastated. While I was away SO much changed! I'm in a whole new phase of life & I couldn't be more happy!! First thing is my hubby & I decided to make things work, we are soulmates, we have beautiful family & we want to be together. We moved into a new place & are working in purchasing a new home. Since we're official again I have full access to his funds, so I'm financially good. I work, but since man & I are good I've been able to bank majority of my money (i only work 18 hrs/ wk), so it's not a lot lol.

Another update: the credit has improved, I'm so proud of myself! I got a secured credit card with my income tax $600 limit & have been using it responsibly & making minty payments on time & now I'm receiving credit offers EVERY single day. It's good to know that if it comes down to it, financing is now an option.

Lastly, and probably the most exciting is that I lost 66 lbs to date!!! And it wasn't that hard either. The crazy thing is, my weight went from about 315 to 328 after I isolated myself from Realself, I think I was depressed, i honestly don't know what happened, but I could no longer for any of my clothes. I'm now 262! Still big, but my oh my I fe like a new woman! I haven't been this size in about 7 yrs! Lol

Anywho, all these changes have brought me back to Realself & I'm doing it. Here's the tea: when I got back into the mindset of getting surgery I decided to just do the tummy tuck, so I emailed Yily & after no response after several emails with no response months later I decided to contact Dr. Jimerson (who I already paid a deposit to) and the wait is 2 yrs for a tummy tuck, but can be reduced down 4 - 6 months once bal is paid in full. This is def worth considering, here are my options: Dr. J: Tummy tuck with lipo to bra roll full tummy & waist, no bbl will cost me $8350, this includes my $500 deposit + a $500 for paying cash. Extra areas $950/area. In live in Ga, so no cost for room & board/travel. Dr. j is not requesting that I lose any weight at all!

Dr. Yily: bbl, tummy tuck, lipo of waist, back, tummy & knees will cost $4750. Only $250 per extra area of lipo, plus I have to buy flight & pay for room & board (still less than Dr. J.) Yily will not work on me if my weight is above 207 lbs.

Right now here's where I'm at: I am still dieting & working out, I lost 66 lbs in 4 months so it el not be a problem to do it again, only faster this time because obedient do as much splurging & I'll workout more frequently :) I figure if I lose 4 lbs a week minimum, for 3 months, that's 48 lbs by September, I would love to book for September 1st (the flights are cheapest on that day to the DR, but I'm thinking maybe mid September that'll give me more time for weightloss, at my 4 lb/ wk rate, this will put me right at 206 lbs!! Doesn't it sound like a great plan! I'm gonna go with it! I leave out Monday evening for vacay, I will still be dieting & working out, but I will be eating good to lol, it's only for a week lol. But seriously after vacay, I'm goin hard all the way into September! I'm gon but my passport, all my post op items, and start taking my vitamins so that my levels will be straight. I'm SO excited!!! Also I will be posting here weekly if not more often, there's so much to be said. Feel free to ask questions, share comments or whatever. Smooches!


I've b

Tomorrow is the last day of my vacay

& I'm ashamed to say that I'm bursting out of all of my clothing & girdles :( Tonight marks the 6th night that I've been on vacation & I've only worked out twice smh. That was days 1 & 2, haven't counted calories since then either. My face is bloated & my body is retaining every ounce of water that I drink. I'm afraid to get on the scale, but tomorrow is weigh day, so I will have to. When I get home, it's catch up mode I have to lose whatever I gained, plus my 4 lbs that I have to lose to meet my goal weight for sx with Lily, it's gon be tough, but I got this! I'll keep y'all posted. Wish me luck!!

Good luck! I lost weight quick by drinking a gallon of water daily and eating a lot of fish. Mainly I do cycling class at La Fitness. It's addicting! DO NOT forget your goal! A cheese burger is not worth your perfect body. I found that out the hard way. Focus on your focus. What also helps me stay motivated is by thinking of my dream body while I'm working out it pushes me when I want to quit. Mind of matter.

Omg!! I have been on here scavenging, trying to find someone traveling to the dr in September! I originally decided to go at the beginning of September because the flights were a bit cheaper at the time that I looked, but I need a few extra wks to lose weight, so the 18th (give or take a few days) would be PERFECT! We gotta exchange info!

Thanks Rayrai!! I looked through your profile & love your butt! It's so cute! Lol. Was the surgery worth it? Do you enjoy shopping more? Clothes fit better? How did your co workers react to your new bod??
  • Reply
Thank you!! I always tell my hubby, "look at my cute butt" haha. Its not real big but its just right. It is worth it, expecially with my PS. The care and everything was great. I just am really swollen in my tummy but healing takes time especially with such a big transformation your body isnt used to. After surgery it was kinda hard but after the 2nd week everything went smoothly :) i havent went shopping yet since im still so swollen in my tummy. All my jeans fit perfect now since my tummy is almost flat and i have a booty to fill in the back. Girl, before my pants would sag almost like a dude haha. My co workers in my dept knew I was getting it done so they were happy for me but other ppl in diff depts would see me and be like wtf how did she get so small and look diff haha. haterrrss!!!! 2 of my other co workers had cosmetic surgery in my dept so we all are healing together haha.

losing weight is so hard but at the end of it you will feel and look amazing and have better results with sx. I use to be 240lbs and got down to 145lbs, by not eating wheat, potatoes and rice and sugar. sounds crazy and hard but once you start doing it is all good! just eat lots of veggies and meat, veggies are full of good carbs. good luck with everything :) i see dr.pantoja july 2nd for the full works.
