PANTOJA ... SX on May 14th... Post Op pics day 1!!!

Hi ladies i've been on here for quite some time...

Hi ladies i've been on here for quite some time but just doing a review for my upcoming surgery.lived by to get to my goal and " Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!!!

About Me

I'm married and have 2 handsome boys (6 and 2) and i can't blame my weight on them. The truth is and still remains I LOVE TO EAT GOOD FOOD. My current weight is 151.2 and height 5'3. I'm 33 and I HAVE LOST OVER 100LBS!!! Gone from a size 22 to 6! It's a battle keeping the weight off, BUT I'M SO WORST THE WAR!!!!! ( Not to get to deep- I had some medical issues that catapulted my weightloss they have since been resolved, but that's what started me in motion.) "On my way to a happy, healthy ME!" This was 1 of the mottos that helped me shed the weight 100lbs. The other one is "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!" I'm here to just finish what i started ;-D.
That being said I'm planning and trying to schedule with Dr Pantoja sometime this month if i can find an opening i will get in contact with nadia to see.

You and I are scheduled for the same date. What time does your flight get in? Which hotel are you going to stay at? Have you paid your deposit for the recovery house? I know we get a discount if we book together or something like that.

Well ladies I had my date bumped up sometime ago...

Well ladies I had my date bumped up sometime ago but just getting around to updating. (Had to take a break ->RS is Addictive! Lol!) I only have a few days left. I'm elated to say the very least!!! Everyone keeps asking me I'm I nervous? But I'm not... I'm just ready to get this party started. I'm all packed and ready.

I purchased my CG off line and a Squeem Vest as well, but when they got here it was to funny I ordered them in a size small they can't even fit my big toe. LOL! If I get into them DR P is truly a miracle worker. I'm going to keep them and look for more I'm meeting one of the VETS from here to go and find one from one of the shops here in ATL. My sizing is so tricky most of the time I can get into a small ( anything I buy from walmart) or medium ( old navy) and other times in a size large just depends on who made it and this skin really gets in the way.

These days I'm managing my weight very well. I'm eating right and walking 5x a week. I'm not at goal but I'm comfortable. Plus I'm honestly afraid to lose more weight because of the severe laxity of my skin.

I want to thank you all for the support and kindness you have shown me. I'm a big softy and I just wanted you to know, you guys are appreciated. GN Ladies... I promise to update soon. Message me anytime.. I pray I find a CG that fits tomorrow.


Blessings to you on your new journey. Can't wait to see you turn into a beautiful butterfly! Lord, let this woman have a healthy recovery. Bless Dr. P and guide his hands through this marvelous work. I'm right behind ya sister...Can't wait to see what you look like underneath all that skin!!!

;) I teared up thinking about how all us women have so much support&love for one another; even tho we haven't met each other. I can't wait to see what we both look like underneath it all.... so excited for both of us. God bless you sista! Xoxo

Ok ladies i made it to the recovery house here in...

Ok ladies i made it to the recovery house here in Tijuana. I'm still excited about my surgery but I was very sad to leave my babies behind. They didn't cry, thank god cause i would have too. Hubby stayed behind to care for the kids. So i'm missing him as well.

Ok the schedule Tomorrow May14th- Labs, EKG and then Surgery ( Tummy Tuck, Lipo, and Fat Graphing to the BOOTAY)... I'll be staying 2 nights at the clinic, and then back here to the recovery house for 5 nights. So i'll be leaving Tijuana on May 21th. It's still so surreal to me. Margarita is so sweet and very helpful. Well i'm still on east coast time so I'm going to nap. Night Night ladies I'll message you again from the flat side.


Im praying for your speedy recovery. You are gonna look bootyfull!

ok ladies i had surgery yesterday not pain what so ever ... i still have not pain... DR P was amazed.... He kept says wow you have a very high pain tolerance. They keep telling me to walk hunched over but i can stand straight up without any pain and i honestly i keep forgetting to hunch over. We thing did not go as planned. I was only given 350 cc each cheek ( i was quote 1000cc and no fat was put in the hips ) ... He explained my skin is thick so it give the illusion of fat but after i got into surgery he said he lipoed my entire back all he could until he started to draw blood. He said plan and simple you are just mostly skin :-( on a good note he told me i could come back and have lipo on my tummy once it is medically safe to do so. However he did take 10lbs from my tummy and did an ett. and 3 liters of fat was all he could get from the arms, thighs, and back. anyway i have posted pic but i swollen. 1 day post op :-)
