March 25th I will lose some unwanted fat and skin!!!!

Husband was worried and I was going to back out. But now it is full go ( I hope). I am excited to see my results. I love how the other ladies that have seen Dr. Cochran are looking. I pray he can get this fat off my back. I have no idea where it came from. This is a pick of me in 2011 and a pick of me now...

40 days and getting excited

I cannot wait for this to be completed and start the healing process.

Getting excited.

32 days...and counting.

I have been shopping for my surgery. I purchased some button up pj's ftom walmart on clearance. Also, picked up a walker from thrift store and looking for a recliner. I am worried about starting my monthly around my surgery date. Has this happened to anyone else and how did you manage while recovering? Any advice please?

Super excited!!!!

I am so excited to have this procedure done soon. I can already feel my confidence rising.

We were going to drive from Ohio to Georgia like we do as a family every spring break, but now we are flying in and out the next week so that we can get back home for our son's AAU tournament the following week. I was concerned about the long drive home anyway. But I now will be back in an hour and half in my recliner healing instead of rest stops walking every hour or so.

Paid in full

Excited and a little impatient too lol! Found a new recliner for $50.00 at a closeout store. Now all I need is some more front zip tops.

Hey dolls....Just 25 days to go. And operation hour glass will be completed. I am looking forward to wearing my summer maxi dresses and pencil skirts without the lumps. I am praying that Dr. COCHRAN will snatched this waistline and get these back rolls eliminated and slim these arms out!

I praise God in advance for a successful, smooth, uncomplicated surgery and speedy for me and all the other Cochran dolls out there! In Jesus name amen!

Hey dolls, I have been on an emotional rollercoaster for the past week. Today was a good day and I am at peace with having my tummy tuck. The count down is going so fast!!!

On my way to the airport...

Keep me lifted up in pray 3/25 is sooooo close.

Pre-op appointment done and checked into hotel

Very excited and nervous... tomorrow morning at 7:30am is the time.

Today is the day at 7:30am I get my flat stomach...whoohooo!

I woke up this morning with the peace that surpasses understanding that only comes from The Lord. I just thank God in advance for a successful, uncomplicated surgery and a quick and smooth recovery in the matchless name of Jesus Amen!

Talk with you dolls later!

I am officially on the flatside!

Yeah!!!!! Made it, wheww!

The pain is real .

I am ready to take 2 as needed every 4 to 6 hours.

Very tired been taking an iron tab...

My husband says I look amazing but I have been so tired that after shower or cleaning binder I'm not in mood for pics. I just walk and lay my butt back down. I will try to take pics tomorrow morning.

And I didn't understand why everyone hated the drains but I hate them they press up against you under the binder and hurt like heck. Also I cannot pull binder to tight with them in the way.

After pic 4 days po

I am happy with my stomach but a little worried I don't have the curves I had before and that my butt is a little flatter. But I understand he had to contour everything together, and I am still hunched over and swollen.

Before

After

Got back home today front GA

There is no place like home. I am over the moon about being in the comforts of my own home.

I have been taking a shower everyday because it is hard as heck to wipe my fat butt. I am in so much discomfort I can't reach as good as I like to (TMI lmbo, but someone should have prepared me for that). But anyhow I am glad to be home.

My husband pulled my second drain today!!!

I am still uncomfortable and to tight to stand up straight but I won't complain.

My husband went back to work yesterday so I am on my own with the schedules of my 8 kids. The struggle is so real.

I hope that wearing this tight body shaper and my cg will help me get through the day better than yesterday.

13 days postop

I am beginning to forget about the god awful pain I was in. I am in no pain at all. I am still sleeping in my recliner because I am so tight I don't want to pull anything. I am standing about 85% straight today. I am loving my results so far. I hope it gets even better, but we shall see.

Just an update

2 months po
