Dropping lbs.,Shopping,to do list,labs,and this BBL Journey -Miami Florida

If People in my life are already being shady so I...

If People in my life are already being shady so I need to eliminate them out my life now cause when I get m BBL...Bruh you really gonna hate!!

It's a certain category of women who dont just whine and complain about their bodies but do something about it!!! Hi Realself sisters I relate to you more than people who are familiar with me so I'm looking to become real friends.I've already had a Tummy Tuck,and four years later I'm going to Dominican Republic for(The finishing touches) Aggressive liposuction and Brazilian Butt lift,and instead of posting diet plans on social media from March- June which most of the over weight people I know...BBQ time by the 4th and it's all out the window then it's postings of BBQ Ribs lol!! I don't relate to that year after year summer after summer BREAK THE CYCLE!!! I don't want to be witness to that I don't have a "Fat person's "mentality" I am like most women sure I had a kid,gained weight,blah blah blah I am more than that I want to get back to enjoying my body,my kid is a young man in college and Like I told his dad I DESERVE to enjoy MY Life LIKE IT OR ME OR NOT I ONLY WANT TO SURROUND MYSELF WITH WOMEN WHO THINK THE SAME!!! Who's with me?!?! As I said I have one kid,but no babysitters needed,I'm a young looking,and spirit 40 live in Bergen County NJ but am a native New Yorker,seriously I lived everywhere in NY Soundview in the Bronx,Clinton Hills Brooklyn,even Far Rockaway Queens.Needless to say I drive and I know after my BBL I will have no choice I wanna be apart of that crew NOT the complain "I need to get in shape by summer this summer no doubt crew" ....Life is too short not to be my "RealSelf" I know it's gott be many of you ladies who think like me ;~)

Hemoglobin 13.4!!Can I get on the table RIGHT NOW!!!

I can honestly say I wasn't trying in the sense that I see some of the postings here,of pre surgery ladies racking up on iron pills,blood builders,potions,and notions.All I do is take a muliti vitamin,and eat well.I mean I am a wife and mother and always cooked for my family over fast food drive throughs.However reading some of the common bbl,tt,lipo post,and just chatting with people considering surgery it is alarming to know that as important as your blood being oxygenated,properly is to undergo a surgery that drastically removes blood during the process one must know how to take care of themselves. Instead of stocking up on pills,shortly before surgery that will inevitably cause constipation.I am here to verify that after having a tummy tuck pushing on the toilet dosen't feel good!! May I suggest a few of my recipes ladies? I am in the process of dropping a few lbs before surgery however I'm trying to do it healthy so I can be healthy on the table and after.My Tummy Tuck Dr.complemented me post sx because I healed well and fast! Two wks and she thought I was a month post op.Well I prepared I stocked up on fruits and veggies fresh and frozen,Pre sx I made myself a big pot of chicken breast,spinach,potato,and carrot soup,easy for my son and husband to heat up for me.Ate Raisin Bran,whole grain breakfast bars,blended fruit and yogurt smoothies.So now pre.sx again I eat well,I cook!....Chinese food,McDonald's,Popeyes,Pizza is NOT my idea of food the only "fast food" at the top of my quick take out options is Chipotle only because it's Real food,with fresh lettuce and tomatoes as options luckly my teenager thinks so too,but I can say I raised him like that no soda,candy,rather water,100% juice,fruits,raisins etc.and my hubby is from the Caribbean and only eats cooked food so it makes it easier for me that we're not a fast food family....Normally I mix spinach with everything like Sat and Sun omelets I buy fresh and add frozen to add to spaghetti,and even cook with salsa,by making sauce over chicken,and fish,and once a week a nice steak and ONLY Sweet potatoes no white potatoes because like I said I'm trying to keep calories low 1200 a day max.Oh I drink almond milk too,green,ginger and lemon teas,and about a gallon of water a day.I am down just under 10lbs by cutting calories moreso than starving myself which is a sure path to low hemo levels.I want to get the best lipo,and bbl results,However eatting well aka "Clean" is the only way I know how to maintain my Hemoglobin and I hope my review helps ladies in the process of knowing that food is better than pills.Best Wishes on your Surgery Journey and take care of yourselves ;~)

LOL This pic is TOO REAL!! AND So is the Shade I'm Receiving

Gurl SMH You ever be so excited telling people about your plans to better yourself,your life,and just the plan that the God Lord put us on this earth to pursue and you happen to catch them giving you the stank face,or a negative,pessimistic response? Or they just go right on with the conversation about nothing like you didn't even say anything!! HUUUM!! I maybe another 1 of my RS Sister's who will be taking that DR Trip by myself tho.SMH But do we really have to??Who's From the NY/NJ Area and wanna meet up,make friends buddy up b4 we go? Fo real,I drive I'm in the NNJ area but I'm a ride or die NYer I be in Crown Heights,I'm familiar wit Soundview...We need to network off line ladies cause I feel like I'mma only have Post SX/PS Friends,when It's all said n done,I mean I still get the "Why did you have a TT question,cause a hanging belly aint cute that's why" Ladies need to invest in more than some "Remmy" to be Happy with yourself is priceless.Lets have drinks and toast to that!

B4 n After

Ready to pay my Deposit...BUT TO WHICH DOC?!?? HELLLLLLP!!

So if you can tell by my profile I've been on RS for a WHILE,and I am 6 yrs. post TT with lipo.I quickly realized I was going back for more PS especially because of the post op side affects that REALLY Bothers me, is that the weight shift and distribution changes.I've always been athletically built,with broad shoulders and narrow hips which didn't do my boby good post pregnancy because it Only made my upper boby larger. I'm blessed to have nice size breast and because I put my thick calfs to use by running track in H.S. I have somewhat of a booty but I know I need fuller hips to go with the projection. Which leads to me knowing the only place I want to go to achieve my less muscular,more feminine curves is to the DR. I had my TT here in the states and as I mentioned they DON'T tell you maybe get a WHOLE Upper body reduction because while your stomach remains flat,any bloatness,or weight gain goes to your arms,boobs,chin,and yeah BACK/BRA FAT!! Sooo what Bikini am I wearing?!?! Sooo take all that upper body fat and make me some hips,rounder booty and snatch this waist Please!!!So yeah as I said my tummy is still flat,but I've always hovered around 200lbs. and Drs. Seem to ONLY see that number when I email for quotes,without taking into account they only have to do lipo,and filling on me I had a TT already,because of my frame those are just my numbers 40-50lbs. less I look different "Skinny" my body changes I loose the booty and boobs I do have so I don't want to be that small I know I don't look like I even weight that much either as well as the fact that my TT Doc worked on me at this weight,I will probably drop like close to 20lbs just for the BEST result so my search for a DR Doc resumes,I'm ready I'm thinking March 2017,I kinda know what recovery house I will stay at for the 10days most recommend BUT Which DOC??! With my description,pics and desired goal who do you recommend Ladies?!?!

DRINK your fruits n Vegetables Ladies!!

Well I'm not one to Post each and every step that I'm taking towards my Journey towards my surgery I am just more of a loner and I'll do my thing on my own independently that's just who I've always been... It would be good to have a buddy of course,but I know I gotta do me but won't hesitate to drop a few suggestions,pointers,or to some even Jewels SOOOO my point is what I'm noticing is that many of you ladies are talking about your quest for finding the perfect pill and the perfect potion to substitute the natural way of boosting your body's Readiness for surgery such as iron. I am highly concerned that a lot of women are accepting of the fact that they're having to get blood transfusions in a foreign country. Not to criticize any other country of course because I'm considering going abroad myself for surgery but it's just very alarming to me that if you lose blood or if you're not recuperating the way you're supposed to,is it okay to be hooked up to a random bag of blood :~/...being stuck into your arm and put into your body is really alarming to me as I said not to criticize another country but I know here in the states that there are many rules and regulations as to who can even donate blood, so I kind of want to know where the blood is coming from,whose blood is it? It makes me sick to my stomach to even think that somebody's blood is going in me... so basically I'm trying to prep and prepare of course. I am a believer that the best you can do is to Naturally get your fruits and vegetables and of course the most natural way is to have them in their natural form and not pills and potions I spoke about this before,because I noticed many ladies complaining their hemo is low.Imagine you get to your surgery and they tell you that you're body is not prepared because obviously you're going to lose a lot of blood so that means your nutrition was not up to par.Of course I never want that to happen and because I've had surgery before I know how the post-op feels so again I just want to be the healthiest I can so to me one of the best tools is a NutriBullet!!!

I have a cup in the morning and share with my husband in his ( he's loving his less bloated belly) sports bottle he takes to work rather than Gatorade (Glorified Kool-Aide) and I even noticed that I want more than one cup a day,my body is craving Fruits n Vegetables?!?!!!! Simply to take a bag of carrots(less than $1) an Apple,banana,whenever I want to throw in there,I use coconut water because I don't want like a milkshake consistency even though I only drink almond milk but I have yet to mix it with milk because I just like the taste of just fresh fruits and vegetables Blend and POW,I KNOW MY BODY IS LIKE THANK YOU!!! Also Walmart Has the best 3lb bag for $10 it has KALE( one of the top Iron Boosters) blueberries,strawberries Wymans frozen fruit n veggie bag.They have different types of bags but there's only one(Green) bag that has the kale so put down the pills and get a NutriBullet ladies!!!You'll be doing Your body complete Justice I think I've even lost a few pounds too!! again I'm not really one to jump on a scale but I just feel the difference and I definitely know that my hemo levels are high enough to get on the table Tomorrow. Also as per my previous post I shared the fact that I cook spinach,alot I drop a hand full in spaghetti sauce,mix it in eggs,etc. I just know the importance of eatting well...and how that's always better than popping pills trying to "Substitute" how our bodies are made to thrive and absorb nutrition,so I just wanted to let you ladies know and share some suggestions so instead of looking on Amazon to find out what's the best pill to buy,to to the grocery store,then invest in a NutriBullet !! You don't have to spend $150 obviously from my experience it's strongest blender (10mins) you just put your stuff in the cup,put it on there and take a straw I just drink it right out the blender cup lol,and like I said I noticed throughout the day that I'm craving another one a "smoothie" I guess you can say but I don't mix with yogurt or milk,mine is just straight fruits and vegetables.As I mentioned I prepared ziplock bags the beginning of the month with extra kale,chia seeds,etc. and then randomly if I want a different taste that week I'll just pick up some apples bananas,a bag of carrots you can't go wrong ladies so drink your fruits and veggies!! Good luck and good health

HIGH PRESSURE SALES TACTICS!!! What a Turn OFF uugg

In this case I am already TURNED OFF uuuhhggg...FIRST of all being a native NYer you're NOT going to pull da okie doke,with the "HUNNY,SWEETY,etc..

YOU RUSH in "OH CAUSE SWEETY THE PRICE I GAVE YOU IS ONLY GOOD FOR RIGHT NOW AND IF YOU DON'T PAY NOW I DON'T IF I CAN GIVE YOU THAT PRICE!!!" :~/  ...."oh since you're trying to pressure me to pay you like an,ATM rather than a potential surgical patient where I'm supposed to entrust my care/LIFE to your office I guess I'm going to have to find another Doctor then"(Like who u think u talking to ?!?

BBL in 30 Days!!!

Well I have decided,Not to go to the Dominican Republic for surgery.I'm just too cautious and important to my family to take the risk.Then the "chasing' of Doctors I'm not with that I have to chase you to give you my money?? Wake up at 7am what'sApp at 9pm SMH...There are Miami Doctors I am considering..ESPECIALLY Because I am READY To pay and be on the Table this time next month!!

Fisher at EresMiami aka Vanity so far NOT Good my coordinator didn't give me the option to submit my photos BEFORE She just gave me a quote $5500 for Hassan $6000 for Fisher I pressed the fact that I consider myself a unique Bbl situation because I already had a tummy tuck so there isn't much fat on my tummy to transfer to bbl but all my back bra,and arm fat I NEED GONE!! However I am leaning towards LipoSulpture because of the toned look I desire for my arms and back.I wanted to know What the Doctor Recommends if that can be achieved with regular lipo..It was obvious she practically put her hand on the phone and was like 'ooh yeah right right,ok send your pics" SMH...My next question again is if they are offering 12 areas of lipo could my arms be included again... because I had a Tummy tuck (let me know what I'm paying for) again "Oh sure Yeah yeah he'll do your arms" Uhhm you need to submit your deposit hun... Uuhmm it's Basically apparent my money is MORE IMPORTANT Than what I WANT,and then all the negative reviews about Vanity IDK SMH...

PLUS SIZE PLAGIARISM!!!!Ladies Beware

So where do I Begin? I'll keep this short but unfortunately this post won't be so Sweet! If you've read my RS journey it's not difficult to some of my personality I'm very straightforward being from New York and I also consider myself to be somewhat intelligent I really don't like to be fooled so don't like West to go for my round 2 of cosmetic surgery which I've already had a tummy tuck in 2011 I have been checking out doctors from Dominican Republic to Miami I decided not to go to Dominican Republic because I'm just too nervous and just don't want to take the risk.I'll save that "adventure' for vacationing with my new curves. Therefore I've been looking at cosmetic surgeons in Miami. Being considered "Plus Size" 5'6 200lbs I QUICKLY realized even though I've already had a Tummy Tuck and mostly want my back fat removed Doctors and or their coordinator look at my questionnaire and immediately respond with the whole BMI rules n regulations.That's fine I know I'm not the ONLY plus size doll on my weight loss - Surgery journey. I know I plan on dropping a few lbs before surgery.However while most PS offices gave me a quote with the ultimatum of being at their required BMI at the time of surgery,I continue to search out RH and those who have Instagram pgs. If the have one.What my post is about is the fact that it's no secret these PS offices are also in the sales business,they promote their skills,videos,and post op patients on social media to attract our money to their pockets,summer homes,and their wives PS lol.I don't have no problem with that obviously we want to all get off the table being "advertisement" Where the problem lies is Don't Lie!! The proof is in the screen shots I also posted along with this review. Some Docs go too far,remember one of the first things I said is that I don't like when my intelligence is under estimated,don't give me the idea that you stick by your BMI "requirement" when I request a quote all while posting on your social media much larger ladies advertising that you are the "Pioneer" of sculpting plus size dolls,then when dolls begin questioning your BMI "requirements" ...uuhhmm lemme just say becareful what you advertise Doc..

Some of these Fraud Docs

Lies!! Hello,

Thank you so much for your pictures! Our surgeon had the opportunity to review them and unfortunately we can't provide a quote on your case based on your pictures. Doctor needs to see you in person because your BMI is a little higher than the allowed., I will be very happy to help you booking a consultation if you decide to come to Miami to see Dr.. However, if you lose some weight, between 10 to 15 lbs, you can resend your updates pictures and we can have a virtual consultation.
Feel free to contact me if you need any further help.
Have a great day!

Dropping lbs,Shopping,to do list,reservations,labs,and this BBL Journey

Ok,so first n foremost is that I'm supposed to be in Miami as I type this at home in New Jersey it's okay.. it's not like I can't use a few extra days to prepare because you're actually never prepared lol,so after having to cancel my hotel reservation, fortunately not getting charged to postpone my flight,let the the RH to expect me a day later,my real review is unfortunately that Macado's office proved to be unreliable when it came to coordinating my surgery without a hitch. Almost a month-and-a-half ago is when I actually contacted them. After I received my quote you would think that once the surgery coordinator confirmed my deposit,she would have sent their lab requirements along with the "Blah blah blah,welcome packet" BUT she didn't....Therefore 1 Day before I was supposed to fly to Miami,uber to their office,hotel booked etc.etc.I call just to confirm the cash,check,or m.o.and that's when another coordinator answers the phone,courteous enough to go down the check list with me and tells me ok and "Bring the labs from your PRESCRIPTION " "PRESCRIPTION??? I was never sent a "Prescription!!" ....ONLY because I had a TT and not being a complete idiot is why I assumed I would have to go to my doctor and do a full physical, but no wonder my doctor was looking at me like I was going to some basement chop shop,for cosmetic surgery because when I walked in and told them that I want to have a "pre-surgical physical" of course I guess they were assuming I would have a prescription or just a request from the cosmetic surgeons office which I did not have so luckily my doctor did the EKG a full metabolic workup, a chest x-ray and urine analysis but of course not having the prescription. The day before I flew out that I realized that more than likely I needed more lab work done so on a Friday,I'm scrambling to call my doctor's office,fax over the labs I did take to Macado's office to confirm if it was enough or not because then they will have to fax over their prescription if not,and of course I will have to go back into my doc's office and give more blood... Of course call back nobody is answering the phone somebody's In wirh another patient blah blah blah so I finally got Nelly who I have confiscated now as my new surgery coordinator to write down what labs I need so I can call my doctor back and confirm if I took those labs or not so long story short I didn't, luckily my doctor's only 2 blocks away so I ran down the street once they receive the fax to confirm that of course I needed more labs,suck the blood for my vein and then the countdown begins to receive the "Full medical " results back in time to be cleared for surgery. In the meantime I had to postpone my flight. Ladies word of advice buy that flight Insurance because you never know what can happen,that extra Thirty forty fifty bucks that the airline charges is worth you not getting a penalty of over $100 if you have to change your flight. I am not looking at this as so much as a negative because hey I'm home I caught it before I flew out becuz if I would have flown all the way there for them to tell me that I don't have enough labs to have the surgery on Monday I would have been pissed B****,and more than likely Not able to have McAdoo do my surgery because they would have had to escort me outta there.... so at least I found out why I was still home and able to change my flight,cancel my hotel reservation, because the only reason why I booked the hotel was to catch Macado's office on a Saturday to do my pre op so I could be on the table on Monday so in a way I save money because now I didn't have to stay at the hotel now I'm going to fly in on Tuesday hopefully my labs have been received by then surgery tentatively right now is scheduled for Wednesday and I just go straight to recovery house after coming from McAdoo office. Ladies make sure that your coordinator is up on it, because once they get your deposit and I seen many ladies complain that they don't call you and they don't follow up once they get your deposit it's kind of proven to be true unfortunately at Macado's office too. I receive the welcome packet she expected me to sign something and I'm just like you know I don't have a printer at home so when I got a chance I was going to stop at the library and print out everything that she sent me via email but she was quick to say.It was the doctor's assistant who's supposed to send you the prescription NO it's you because if the doctor's assistant didn't hear from you that you received my deposit then they don't even know I exist in the system so scratch her as my surgery coordinator my new surgery coordinator at Macado's office is Nelly so bypass everybody that you call and speak to the person that you feel is the most reliable because as I was going through all this my original surgery coordinator Stephanie that gave my deposit to never even called me back it was Nellie who was patient enough to make sure that I'm more than just a Dolla Sign but actually a patient because I explained to her I'm not rushing to get on the table I want to make sure that I'm healthy enough to get on the table,I look forward to being healthy enough to undergo BBL surgery which is most important....Update once I am flying out,stay tuned ;-/
