Don't want to be a Barbie just a better version of my self

After having gastric bypass 15 years ago I lost a total of 250 pounds but after having five children after that my weight fluctuated between 220 and 250 pounds. So I decided as a gift to me I will take my weight-loss Journey to a different level I am looking to get rid of all the excess skin dad five pregnancies and weight-loss have left behind but I am looking to have my normal frame so I'm researching doctors.

Just talk to a doctor that sounded like a total meat processor than a human

Today I got angry what I doctor because she was telling me that I had a boyish frame and in order for me to look good she had had to use her magic to disguise it and make me look like a totally different person dammit when some doctors are going to understand that I don't want to be a Barbie I just want to feel good in my skin if I had my way and I know I will Mild your body will be like this

My friend the scale

The scale is crazy or what

Been working out like crazy and Iam stuck at 235.8 lbs this is crazy

About to give up on this surgery bussines

I been contacting this doctor from spectrum estetics and this girl will not answer my calls since Friday only when my husband calls she calls me back and then when I tell her hold on to get my card to give her the deposit she hangs up apparently she has too much money to hold on for a min. While I get the card she is absolutely rude and ridiculous. So basically I don't have a decent surgeon that will do the job

Decided to go with Doctor Ugestine at Refine Institute

Still swollen but the change is noticeable doc told me he took 23 pounds between skin and fat

Swollen but the change is incredible already

Loving my body

Loving me even more

Still swollen and kinda itchy but loving the chape my body is taking . Can't wait for swimsuit shopping LOL


Omg the doc pulled one of the drains today that thing hurt and I never thought that it cover my hole back

I am so happy I could cry

Today y put a pair of jeans I had in my closet for motivation they were hm size 16 and if you know their fit that is actually a size 14 I was so emotional that I left to the doctors office wearing them afte I left the office I was at target and a cute guy looks at me and says if someone painted those jeans on me because it look good

Today one drain out

Fat necrosis

My belly I soon is having a little of a hick up the doc told me that is called fat necrosis it when the fat does not get enough blood supply and it dies and the drains have been helping puch it out of my body

Loving it

Even thou I have a siroma I am loving the results

Update on my 35 days post op

My scar even with the seroma still looks good
It's lovely AND IAM LOVING MY NEW SHAPE FROM A SIZE 24 to a 14 fiting me big

My new body

I love the way I look

Today I talk to a lady that is having the procedure done and she asked me a very good question and it was this . With the fleur di lie procedure you will have two scars one horizontal and one vertical why would you do it like this when there are other forms of doing it? My answer was Yes it's true that there are other ways to have the procedure done but my problem with excess skin can not be address just by either making a incision left to right even on a complete circumference my birthday suit has stretch out both vertical and horizontaly so if I address one I will still have the other to deal with and besides with both good wound care and time the scar can be heal to the point of being almost unotisable.
Lastly this is my way of thinking if you never have worn very revealing clothing then you don't miss it like I have never worn a bikini when I was single why wear it now that I am married the spice can be keep for those private moments.

Trip to Cuba

New body sexy me
