2010 is when I first thought about having smart lipo. After finding out I was pregnant again for the second time, I just knew it would be soooo hard to lose the weight the second time around and I was right......

My weight loss to Smart Lipo Journey!!!!!!

Before I had my son I was exactly 200lbs. I had gain over 60lbs. After I had my 8.5lb son, I started working out and I lost about 18lbs the first go around with no help. I decided to have the surgery, I made my appointment and I was ready. As the days got closer I started to question myself. I got really scared that I would not see any results because I still felt like I needed to lose some more weight and I was right. I was about 176lbs and I just stopped working out. I got really sad because I am 4'10 weighing 176lbs, I felt fat and lazy because all I did just take care of my children. I gain about 10lbs which brought me back to 182-186lbs depending on my mood. My son really took my sexy curves and I was not feeling like myself. I was so tired of feeling this way and I wish I could change this feeling!!!! It was time to gain my confidence back....

On Oct 1st 2012, I began to work out again and I lost about 26lbs which brought me to 160 at the end of 2012.

Just when I thought things was looking up, I realized I had reached the point where I could not lose anymore weight no matter how hard or long I worked out. My stomach has loose skin and my muffin top just will not lose anymore inches. At that point, I really felt like it was time to seek out smart lipo again and this time I was not going to back down and be scared. I set up my consultation for March 14th and my surgery will happen the next day March 15th.

Today is Friday, exactly 7 days before my Smart Lipo and I have to admit that I am very relaxed. I have my notes and questions ready for the doctor and I know I will be in great hands.
I already feel very comfortable with his staff just by the short convos I've had with Mimi she is really sweet and VERY patient.

I will upload my before and after photos. If you have any questions or any advice before and after please comment below.

I’m still soo nervous. It hasn’t hit me yet that my Tammie the talking tummy will no longer be terrorizing me. I have watched every lipo surgery procedure on YouTube. The patients receiving the lipo say there is no pain but I read the reviews and people are saying they did experience some pain. I have a very low tolerance for pain and I am horrified that I might psyche myself out smh. Pray for me people!!!

Hello again!!!! well tomorrow is the big day and I...

Hello again!!!! well tomorrow is the big day and I have to say I am very nervous.. I mean I started iching because im sooo scared..
I met Dr.Gilad today and he is very nice he answered all of my questions and I was very pleased about his thoughts, he is very up front and honest.

The only thing is i paid the day before the procedure!!!

Please keep me in your prayers and wish me luck. I will post pics as soon as humanly possible.

Helloooo everyone well starting off with the...

helloooo everyone well starting off with the review.. first off i thought i wouldnt feel anything i was wrong the best part to me was when he numbed the areas before he made the little holes all i did was take a deep breath and that was it but i felt only the areas that didnt get numbed as much by the fluid. it felt weird and at time very uncomfortable. i thought it would be less painful.. but omg it was worth it my doctor was very nice and calm when i told him it hurt he stopped and went somewhere else and let the numbing fluid sit a little. i did stand up about 4 time so Dr G could make sure every side was even and he even took some fat out while i stood up. it took exactly 2 hours and he didnt stop at all. The nurse was sooo sweet they both kept me talking so i wouldnt think about what was going on. my husband was in the waiting and she kept reassuring him that i was fine as well as he heard me a few times.. but hey i love what Dr G did he is truly gifted and i probably go back for my inter thighs in a few months maybe!!!

if there is anything i havent covered just ask and i will answer.and remember

BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL!!! XOXO
