I am 39 years old, 5'1" and 110 lbs. I have 3 wonderful kids, ages 9,7 and 5. After having them, I was left with lots of loose skin and stretch marks. I am scheduled for an Extended Tummy Tuck with lipo to my flanks on August 24th. I can't wait!
For years I have worked out and dieted to try to get rid of my belly. And after seeing NO improvement, I finally have realized that it is what it is. I had a BA last year and decided that if I couldn't get my belly to look any better, that I would schedule my TT. And so I did. I am confident in my decision and my PS and cannot wait!
I almost feel like it isn't possible to get rid of my belly. I almost feel like that even though I'll be better, that I'll still have this belly. I guess since I've had it for so long, that it just seems weird to me that it potentially could be super flat. LOL! Well, no matter what happens, I know it will look better than it does now.
August 24th...here I come!
I had my pre-op appt this past Friday. How...

- Day of treatment
8/20 - Only a few more days...I cannot wait. Today I treated myself to pizza for dinner and I ate 3 slices (large slices)!!! I loved very second. I drank over a gallon of water today. So I'm treating myself to my last soda for awhile. Tomorrow I start my fruit and veggie detox. Will do that until my surgery. Loaded up on lots of yummy fruits and veggies at the grocery store and I feel totally ready. Hubby asked if I was nervous today. I said no. I feel totally at peace and completely at ease. If anything I'm super excited! It's all I can think of! All I need to do is make some quinoa and lentils for a quick side dish/salad. Also need to make some cabbage soup and lastly going to make some shredded pork for hubby and the kids for later in the week. Then I'll really be all done. :-)
Now for today....8/24. Today is my day. I will be leaving for the drs office in a couple hrs. I'm very excited! I cannot wait. Bye bye belly! The last few days I've spent getting the house ready, clothes washed, groceries bought, food made, prescriptions filled, etc. It's been tiring! I've slept great the past couple nights...which is probably a good thing since who knows how I'll be sleeping after sx. Well...time to get myself showered. See ya on the flip flat side!
Ok girls, here I am...1 week po. I had my first...
