I am a mother of two girls, one is 18 and the other is 12. I had my first child via c section and the second naturally. I have yearned for a tummy tuck since the birth of my first. I have been through so much in my life, but one major thing was I lost my husband and kind of lost myself. I ate to feel comfort and then gained a ton of weight. I was just about 200lbs. I finally woke up one day and said this is enough. I want to be here for my kids when they are grown and started excersizing my tail off. I am very athletic, I ride my bike and I work out weekly. it seemed like my "Gut" would not go away. No matter how many situps and crunches that I do. So I decieded to do something for me- After all I have never done anything for me. I was to busy making sure my girls had the proper care and loving to make them as strong as they can be. I go for my Pre Op Appointment today 3/11/2013, and my surgery is scheduled for 3/29/2013- This is the day I start my new life. Hopefully confident and secure in my own skin:)
P.S.- I am posting a picture, please dont gag....Lol

Ok so I had my pre-op on Monday. Everything went well, he took pictures which was nerve wrecking. I also took my bikini bottoms along with me to ask him if the scar could be below them. He marked me and it will sit right below the band- I can't believe it I may actually be able to wear a bikini this year. I have not ever worn one in my entire life....eeeekkk- so happy:) I go for all of my tests and bloodwork on Monday. Pray that all goes well with that. Also have my supplies ready and just waiting on my meds to come in- the pharmacy did not have them in stock. Any tips or special items that any of you all used would be gretly appreciated.....thanks:)

9 days- I cant believe it. I am having mixed emotions about having it done. Spending that kind of money on myself, especially since I have kids. I know that it could be used towards them but, from what I have read from all of the tummy tuck sisters- thats normal. I think I have everything prepared for this. Just trying to get my mind totally prepared. I am a major outdoorsy girl and I know that I will not be able to do the stuff that I enjoy for a little while. I hope all that have had theirs done already are healing well and will say a few prays for those coming up. I did order my compression garment- If anyone has a favorite or a must have one Please let me know. I was at a loss at all the ones available. I ordered a Leonisa- Anyone use this brand? If so which one? Thanks ahead of time for any help:)

Ok just a quick update, I am still in no pain at all. I am doing really well. Having a little bit of swelling going on but, other then that it's all good. I am still in the recliner and plan to be till I get the drains out. I go in Monday for a check up so hopefully I will get them out then. I have very little draining. I am only taking my pain meds at night and am going through the day with a few Tylenol. I am walking around the house almost upright, doctor is quit pleased. I went to the store yesterday and walked around a bit, wasn't too bad. Just listened to my body and left when I felt tired.
