Very Excited

I've had kids back to back as well as surgeries and my stomach is hideous. Not comfortable in my clothes and just want to look and feel sexy again. I'm not doing this for any one else; just me because I don't like what I see when I look in the mirror.

I can and will loose weight everywhere but the abdomen and after a while it becomes depressing. I will post some pics up this week. I just haven't taken any yet.


Today's your big day! Looking forward to seeing those pics and hearing how your recovery goes. We're here for you.

Way to go!  It is wonderful that you are doing this for yourself.  You will feel like a totally new woman after the surgery. 

Be sure to keep us up to date and post those pictures.  We will all help you celebrate the new body.  Just a few more days to go....

Hello ladies. I had my TT surgery on Monday May...

Hello ladies. I had my TT surgery on Monday May 9th around 12noon. While I was in recovery waiting to be assigned to a room, I started to experience severe pain and was yelling at the staff telling them that they weren't trying to help me and wanted me to! I can laugh at how crazy I must have sounded being so dramatic, but pain will make you act retarded. I stayed in the hospital for three days and come home late Wednesday night. I'm not experiencing a great deal of pain just soreness more than anything. My friends say I have a high tolerance for pain and I somewhat agree with them. I haven't had a chance to just inspect my body myself but my friends say my body looks great. Today is Thursday and I went to the doctor and had the pain pack removed and that felt gross coming out....yuuk!! I still have the annoying drain tubes and will have those removed next week. Later tonight I will take some more pics to post later with the dates on them. I will keep you posted and thanks to those who wished me well. I'm not sure when I should post the pics; as I take them or after my six week check up. Let me know ladies.

Hello drain tubes were removed today...

Hello drain tubes were removed today and I was very happy because those things were so aggravating. Recovery is going well. I will take some more pics next week to see what I look like two weeks after the surgery and start posting them then.


Can you post your before and after pics please!!!
