DID IT! Third Child is Now 7 TT No Lipo - Grand Prairie, AB

I am 5feet 10 inches. After 3 children each 10lbs...

i am 5feet 10 inches. After 3 children each 10lbs plus I made the choice to correct the aftermath. My high weight 195. 1 gallbladder surgery after the 3rd baby. Tubes clamped shortly after. Work out regime with eating habits changed. Weight 4 yrs later 145. Going into surgery weight 165. I like curves :)I am a non smoker but indulged in cigars. I quit that 2 months prior to surgery. Quit alcohol 1 month before hand as well. Worked on the elliptical 4 weeks before hand and ate lots of protien. If it walks or grows from the ground it was ingested by me. :) Oh and I also started taking vitamins 2 months prior. Vitamin C, D, B complex, and multivitamin for woman.

Surgery-First two days...hell and a sleepy blur was all good. Slept in a recliner. I wouldnt let my man see me. Hired my sister in law to take care of me. Day 3-5 man allowed lol.Slept in a propted up couch. Slow moving, stuck to painkillers and boost drinks, yogurt and pineapple juice(helps with swelling). 2 Tylenol 3's every 4 hours. Day 5-7 started getting more mobile. Day 8 back in the office(bookeeper) for 5 hours painkiller free. Day 9-14 Got my drains removed at outpatients in the hospital not my ps(he is a 4 hour drive). I was my own nurse. I stayed in and loved me. I did after all invest $9000. If you want the best then be it :) I can work the jiggle later. No worries :))

Day 14-28 Back to work. 7 hr days. Easy stuff. I didnt reach. Walked hunched over but who cares. This to shall pass. slow movements. Getting out of a reclined bed (tons of pillows and a recline pillow from bed bath and beyond) got easier every day. Changed my incision tape every weds so it was easy to remember. Saw my surgeon finally at 4.5 weeks on his prompting. He said my Healing was amazing but i made it happen. Groceries can wait(I stocked up for an army beforehand). Kids learned to shovel. Movies my friend. I suffered for 9 months to make perfect babies I will suffer for 3 months to make a perfect stomache. Imagine sitting down and feeling a roll or muffin top. That was me before the tt. Feeling out of breath or constricted. Like wearing the Binder. But it was my extra skin.

Day 28 to present. Binder free. Spanx. Ugh hate those things to. Torture chambers. I dont know how any woman big or small can squeeze themselves into it. Yuck. Makes me feel horrible. Other than that it was a Piece of cake. I look at my stomache everyday and love that babies came from it but more importantly an amazing woman. People say You cant take it with you. But I am. AND so will you. Be the best for your body and it will happen. Patience is a virtue. I always hated that saying but I learned. Toot toot.

I followed all you tummy tuck ladies. thank You. Honestly. But its not that bad. I am a princess. Papercuts kill me. So does lifting a bag of potatoes. lol. Do your homework on your surgeons. I did. Waited 2 years. His work shows. No horror stories or swell hell. No negetive feelings. No poor me. I only posted this for the women who are scared. I was horrified. My blood pressure even went up the day of surgery. Seems everything is so negetive or not even close to upbeat. Be good to you. Think positive. I am posting a pic from 3 weeks. And a video from 2.5 weeks. Swelling present. But no complaints. I did afterall have a roll before the swelling. lol. No vid apparently it needs a utube code or something. email me if you want to see it. Oh also had my breasts done between child 2 and 3. Different DR. Love them as well ;)

Be good to yourself and good things happen. I look at this pic all the time :)))))))))
