I am a healthy 26 year old single Mom. I have been happily divorced for two years. My ex husband and I had 3 boys who are now 7,6,4! I went on the South Beach Diet after getting my tubes tied in 2006 and lost 85 lbs!!! I have managed to keep off the weight for 3 years. But now this skin just HANGS and I play soccer and chase my kids and I am totally grossed out that i can HEAR my skin flap against my thighs.
I had 2 consults for a FULL TUMMY TUCK w/lipo and decided to go with a local femal surgeon! I wear a healthy size 12/14 now (175lbs) (before kids i was a 145 lbs athletic size 10) and I am just sick and tired of clothes not fitting right and getting no where with diet and exercise.
After lots of prayer and planning, I am having my full TT done on April 20!!! My kids will be with my ex on Spring break while I am home recovering. My work thinks I am "on vacation" for 10 days. My best friend will be with me the first 48 hours after surgery and then I am kinda on my own. I have told a select # of friends and my parents and hopefully I will have help and company. I am nervous because I dont know anyone personally who has gone through this and its a 4 hour surgery. BUT I am confidant that this is whats BEST for me and I am EXCITED!!
