I had twins in August 2011. They were 7 lbs 12 oz and 6 lbs 4 oz. I carried full term and delivered vaginally. They really did a number on my stomach muscles and stomach skin. I also lost 70 lbs on Weight Watchers after they were born. I am 5'9" and weigh 153 lbs. I had my tummy tuck with... READ MORE

Hi Lisa! Don't get discouraged. It happens, and believe me, I know what it means to have life get in the way. It also doesn't help that I am a HUGE baker and love sugar. I have lost the weight I put on (minus about 5 - 7 lbs). I... READ COMMENT

Aww, thanks so much for your comment!! I wish my surgeon would have prepared me MENTALLY for those first couple of months. I had no idea what a mental journey I was going to be on along with the physical aspect of it. Welcome to 16... READ COMMENT

You are so welcome! If you need any guidance on the 'elevator' exercise, let me know. I'm lucky because my friend who paid for the Tupler Technique (splint-n-all) went to a licensed nurse in my area that teaches it. So she showed me... READ COMMENT

Thanks for your comment! Yep, almost a year later, and I still lift my shirt up 99% of the time when I go to the bathroom. ;) READ COMMENT

Hi! Ok, so when my friend (who has never had a tummy tuck) told me about the Tupler Technique, I wanted to make sure I was doing it correctly, so I emailed them. They told me that because I have already had my muscles sewn together... READ COMMENT
