A Well Deserved Gift to Myself - South Africa

Hi realselfers ive been on this website for the...

hi realselfers ive been on this website for the last year and helped me so much when i had my breast reduction done in november 2013. after my boobjob i was so happy with my results i went on to loose 15 kgs and now im stuck with a belly that wont move, so a tummytuck seemed like an option. i ve seen so many amazing results from you ladies and it as realy inspired me to do my homework in finding a good board certified doctor in south africa where i live. i chose dr nicolette landman as i felt so comfortable with her during my consultation and her work looks amazing and i realy want to get it done right the first time as il be paying this myself. a few facts about me, im 30 years old ,1 son who is 3 years old and i cant remeber a time when i was no heavy but after my son turned two i decided enough is enough n started a lifestyle change , my starting weight was 113kg and i currently weight 87kg and my goal weight is 80 kg as im 1.67m tall. i excersise 5 days a week bt i cant seem to shift this belly , i will be getting a tummytuck and flank and back lipo.

here it goes the pictures that got me crying n decide enough is enough

finally posting the fat pics that got me started on this amazing journey
