32 Year Old Mom's Gift to Herself! - Minneapolis, MN

So I'm a 32 year young mom looking to get her sexy...

So I'm a 32 year young mom looking to get her sexy back. After narrowing down my surgeons to Dr. Jimerson (aka Dr Curves) and Dr Miami, I came across Dr BBL on Dr. Miami's snapchat. He has been trained by Dr Miami and all his results are phenomenal. So I am looking forward to my BBL/Lipo journey with Dr. BBL. So far everything has been good.

Wish Pics!!!

Looking for something natural, not too crazy.

My "Get Healthy" Journey Starts TOMORROW!!

So last week I had some blood work (unrelated to my upcoming surgery), but it just happened to cover some of the test I will needing next May. All my numbers are horrible!!! My hemo is only a 9, I am vitamin D deficient, along with some other stuff I didnt understand---so basically I am really anemic.

I have to pull myself together or surgery will not happen for me. I feel like I have a long road in front of me so if anyone can offer any suggestions, I would appreciate it!! ????

Belly Fat!!!

Also working on losing some belly fat before I get it sucked out so I purchased this!!! Been using it for 2 days now.........

Most responsive surgeon yet!!

So since I have so much time before my surgery, I have just been following all Dr. B's surgeries on social media. He is one of the only surgeons that actually personally responds to questions, consults, etc. As a first- time patient, that is greatly appreciated. Its can be a quite scary journey for us newbies.

Happy New Year!!!

Really excited to see what this year has in store! In regards to my Sx, now the real work begins starting tomorrow; getting down to my 190 requirement before June 20, 2017!!! Feeling renewed and focused. Wishing all dolls im this journey nothing but health and happiness!! ????????

Where I'm Starting Dreaded Before Pic In Clothes)

Me crying and trying on clothes this weekend. My husband was with me and I was nearly in tears. I gained so much weight in 2016. Just wait on it----I'm going to get my life and my waist ????????. I will post some updated pics once I shed some weight.......

Hemo Help!!!

Ask I been trying to be proactive about the whole hemo thing and I am feeling happy for a little improvement, but still frustrated. I went from a 9.6 to a 10.4 (not even a 1 point increase). My Dr. Is willing to work with me and keep checking it, but what can I do to get it up? If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

I have been taking Floradix with orange juice, an iron pill, prenatal vitamins, and Caltrate with Vitamin D ( but somehow my Vit D has decreased). Help!!

Wish Pic Obsession!!!

So I been screening shooting just about every body that I like (or is close to mine), to the point that my photo album in my phone looks like Porn Lol!!!! I know a lot of you ladies prob know exactly where I'm coming from. With all that being said, I still am 5 months out but these are just few of my fav! Need to narrow it down to just a few........

Office Jitters

As my Sx gets closer I start to think more about the recovery phase of this journey........how so I manage when it's time to go back to work?! I work in an office where I sit 8-10 hours of day. The other issue is that I want to keep my Sx as private as possible. That wont happen carrying a BBL pillow in the office Lmao!!!! I am in a position of leadership so being glued to my desk is kinda important. What do I do??? ????????????

Got My Airfare!!

Got a Google alert for flights to Minneapolis and couldn't beat the price so I jumped all over it!!! Dr. BBL here I come!!!

I also get my hemo rechecked on Moday so wish me luck! I been taking my Floradix, Gerirol, B12, and Vit C faithfully. Lets see of it paid off. Will keep you guys updated.

Hemo Hopelessness

So I got my hemo checked AGAIN yesterday and while it did go up, not by much. My doctor is said that I could keep taking the iron three times a day and hope for a 12 by June or see a hematologist for options. I decided to see my hematologist.

Im taking iron, folic acid, b12, vitamin c, and hair/skin vitamins. Im kinda passed but I plan to stay consistent. I ordered SSS Tonic since I have heard good things about that. I also plan to start incorporating spinach smoothies into my diet at well. I look forward to what the hemo to hematologist has to say.

A number of dolls have also mentioned beets, but Idk about that Lol! Has anyone been able to bring their hemo up from a 10 to a 12 in 4 months?? Im curious to know and how.........

Adding more to my Hemo Regime

Went to bed passed last night about my hemo progress but woke up feeling even more determined! So I purchased the SSS tonic and the blood builders and will be adding those to my daily hemo regime. Im going to remove the hair vitamins and prenatal since Im adding these two (don't want to over do it) plus the hair and prenatal have no iron.

Also talked my hematologist and I have an Appt for March 9th. Im going to be aggressive for the time being.......

The Struggle....

My kitchen is starting to look like a pharmacy Lmao!!! My husband is like what's all this crap. Man the struggle is so real to get my numbers up. I really cant afford time wise or financially to reschedule my Sx. Still has 4 months to go!!

Surgery Buddies?!

Is anyone having surgery with Dr. BBL in MN the we of June 26th. 4 months is right around the corner!

Green Smoothies!!!

Started my green drinks today in efforts to support my hemo goals. They are delicious!! Spinach, flax seeds, mango, pineapple, and green apple. :-)

The Real Countdown Begins

So I am exactly 4 months away from my Sx with Dr. B. I really need to buckle down and get this weight off. As of today, I am 217lbs and I need to be 190 to have the lipo and BBL. I started the green smoothies on Sunday and lost about 2lbs so I think I will continue with that.

I get my hemo checked next week so once I hopefully hear good news then I will start buying my supplies. If anyone has a good supply list please send it to me. I will post some before pics once I get under 200lbs.

Looking to Cleanse and Lose Lbs

Hey Dolls!! Was scrolling thru IG and come across this smoothie detox diet. It grabbed my attention since I was already doing a green smoothie for breakfast to get my hemo up. Anywho, I think I'm going to actually try it as a diet since I still need to lose at least 25lbs. It looks like a pretty painless diet.......

Before Pics

Decided that since it was getting so close I should post a few before pics. It takes so much strength to post unflattering pics of yourself. Being on RS has def feels like my safe haven where I have sisters that can relate to the journey. Still got some ways to go before I hit my ideal weight but everyone had to start somewhere.

Anyway, so as far as my butt I actually like part of my butt. The top is round and has some projection but the bottom has flattened a lot. My hubby blames it on my office job and I kinda do too. I sit so no long to the point my butt has fallen to slip and is tingling. But that WILL NEVER happen again after I get my new ass.

I been debating back and forth on how much fat I want added and I think Im going to have the max that can go in!! Many dolls have told me that you can lose up to 30%. I DO NOT want a round two so maybe the extra fat can make up for any I lose. Idk......

Hemo Chronicles...

Left the hematologist and the Dr definitely wasnt impressed with all the shit I been taking (Geritol, SSS, blood builders, etc). He basically taking the high potency iron 3 times a day on an empty stomach is what will do it. Rolls eyes.....

Anyway, he also explained to me that my iron stores may be normal and there may be something else causing the low hemo. Of course my blood was taken and I should be able to give you dolls (if anyone is actually following Lol) an update. If its still low they may do iron infusions along with some type of plan.

I been trying to update on my hemo as much as possible just to help other dolls that may look at this a year from now and need some info/guidance. It was really hard to find reviews that had good documentation on the journey to boost info. Please pray for me and keep your fingers crossed. I will post once I hear from my Dr.

Lab Results! Yaaasssss!!!!

Hey Dolls!!! Got a call from my doctor and hemo has def improved in the past month from a 10.6 to 11.9!! I so hype!! I finally feel like I can start finalizing my SX plans now that I know I'm good to go. Now to just inch it up a bit more to that 12. I'm on my way!!!

Recovery House

I reached out to MPLS Escape (affiliated with Miami Escape) because my hubby wont be able to come down until a few days after my SX. So 3 days is over $500!! This is hella pricey in my opinion. Yall tell me if Im crazy?! Unfortunately, I don't have any another options until the 3rd day when hubby gets there. The quote is good for a work so I need to make a decision on staying there or finding a private nurse. On the bright side, Dr B. has a hotel that he works with and they are only charging $80 a night. Its looking like I have to spend over $1000 just on accommodations. If there are any Vets and/or Dr B dolls following I would love some advise.

Weightloss Update

10lbs down. I need to lose at least 25 more before Dr. B will even touch me. The struggle is so real.......

Time to Go Shopping!!

So I have a little over 2 months to go!!! Very exciting and a little nerve wrecking since Im struggling losing the weight my doc wants me to lose. I don't want to starve like a lot of dolls have suggested I do Lol. But anyway..... I'm going to officially start shopping today. I started an Amazon and Ebay cart. Will hit up Walmart and Target too. I have a list written out but if there is something I absolutely should have, please share. :-)

Ab Boards

Hey!!! So trying to finish up this shopping to get one more thing off my to do lists. So I see two types of Ab boards. Yall have any suggestions on which one is better? The flat or the two-sided one? The prices seem reasonable for both so Im down for either one. Just want the best compression.

Office Dolls

So I found something I think will help with my "office after BBL" anxiety. A sit/stand desk!!! One of my biggest fears of getting the bbl was what the hell would I do when I return. I sit for 8-12 hours a day so that was a major concern. I also wasnt a huge fan of carrying the pillow to work because I don't need the employees I supervise in my business Lol. I placed the order a little early so I could get it in the office well before my Sx. $140 was a pretty reasonable price. Will give me reviews once I test it out :-)

Hemo Frustration

Sooooo I just got a call from my hemo nurse and hemo went down from 11.9 to 11 smh. I haven't changed my routine at all! The only thing I can think of is that I just my period a week ago. Very frustrating!! What's even more frustrating is that my Sx is actually scheduled the week of my period. Has anyone has Sx on their period? The hemo nurse said she would talk to the doctor about offering me one time iron infusion to boost it to a 12. This cant be real.......

Iron infusion!!!!

Its a shame to be this pumped about damn iron, but my doctor just approved me for iron infusions! Hopefully and prayerfully, this gets me to the 12!! I got like 10 weeks to get this hemo up!!!

This is amazing!!!

Just seeing Dr Bs before/after get me more and more excited! Yall see this???? Cant wait!!!!!!!

Infusion Day!!

Okay yall....... So I super hype to get this iron infusion but now that this damn IV is in my arm, I hate it!! I had to get pricked in each arm and it smells/feels like Im being infected with cold Floradix Lmao. This anemia is for the birds!!! Praying my hemo is a 13 after this. Uuuggghhh


Here is what I have far. I think I am missing a bunch of stuff lmao but I am making progress! 4 camis, donut to sit on at home, 4 dark colored tank dresses, neck pillow for plane, a robe, compression socks, dramamine, Arnica can gel/tabs, hibiclens soap, and lipo foam and female urinal (which I forgot to add in the suitcase). What essential things am I missing other than comfy shoes?

Countdown Begins!!!

Cant believe I only have 8 weeks left!!! Im so excited and consumed with my Sx right now!!! Finished booking my flights and hotel last week. Didnt finish paying my Sx off yet since Im worried about my hemo. Wish I would of booked in the winter so I wouldn't be stuck wearing layers in the summer but oh well. Its gonna be so worth it!!!!

Weight loss Update

So had a few ups, downs, and set backs but I'm 6lbs down as of today. I still need to lose 28lbs more lbs before June 29th but I think I can do it! My current weight is 218 and I need to be at 190. My ultimate goal is 170 but I know I can't make that before surgery.......

Goals!!!!! Lol :-)

This is my life right now yall....stalking RS, IG Sx pages, and Dr Bs snapchat Lol!!!! His patient today is exactly where I need/want to be at in a month!!! June 29th!!!!!!!!!!

Hemo Wars

So one week until my hemo check and I'm a MISSION!!! Cooking in cast iron, drinking liquid iron, poppin pills......you name it!!! Im feeling confident but of course Im also just as nervous before Im a heavy (period)bleeder. On top of being a heavy bleeder, my surgery is actually scheduled the week my cycle is due. Im praying my bodies comes thru me and I have a hemo of at least 13 cause I feel amazing!!!

Is anyone in RS land?

As I get closer I been hoping to engage with some of the dolls but that doesn't seem like its going to happen Lol. I guess I will forever have a journal of my journey Lol......Anywho, I been on snap a lot and seems like many patients bring goodies and gifts for their doctors. Is this a must do?

Still shopping.......

Still trying to finish up my shopping list. U don't realize how much crap you need until you actually start collecting everything. So I ordered some disposable pad panties (who would of thought lol) because my period is due the same week of my surgery. My lipo board also came in from Colombia. The only thing Im waiting for now is my other set of lipo foam (I ordered the mini one so I realized I prob would need another set). I think the remaining stuff that I need is stuff I can buy from the dollar store or at target/Walmart. Im so excited!!! I cant seem to stay off RS. I keep finding random ish to update about lol. Until next time.......

Happy Mothers Day!!!

Our kids are the reason many of us are getting surgery!! Haha so we deserve it!! Enjoy your day mommies!!

25 lbs to lose......

Got on the scale this morning and I'm at 215 (which is about a 10 lbs weightloss) I had a couple slip ups since I last weighed in so I had to re-lose some of what I initially lost smh. I literally have 6 weeks to be at 190 and I feel like Im up against the clock in the worse way. My goal is to noose a lbs a day for the rest of May (so at least another 15). Been eating nothing but fruit, veggies and protein since I still need to ensure my hemo is where it needs to be. Was also thinking about trying to squeeze in 2 workouts a day but with 3 kids thats kinda hard. I got this!!!!! Will post some body pics at the end of the month.

Still Buying

This should be my final online order!!!!! The rest crap is coming from the damn dollar store (band aids, cotton balls, etc). Im going to cut a hole in the folding chair and sit on that when im in the house. I think im just about set!!!

Hemo Check Tomorrow

Wish me luck dolls!!! Hopefully this is my last one until surgery......

Tummy Pic

So here is what my stomach is looking like. Its not ugly to me, I just cant stand the pouch. I really don't want to lose any more weight because once I get this waist snatched, I will be content with my body. I hate the BMI guidelines because everyone's body is different. I don't want to lose too much in my stomach (which is where Ibtend to lose weight from) then have to go to thighs or something. But I do respect the fact that they use them for safety reasons.

I did it!!!!

I just got off the phone and finally received good news!! MY HEMO IS A 12.4!!!!! I'm so happy! This was a long journey going from a 9 to a 12. Took a lot of hard work and iron lol. Now just to maintain......my period is due in about ten days which scares me because I don't know how many points it may drop since I'm a heavy bleeder. But I wont ponder on that too much today since now I am in great mood and one stop closet to my surgery. Now just to finish dropping this weight, I was at 214 this morning. :-)

Losing this weight......

Uuugghh so the scale is not budging when I go hard or creeping back up when I do decide to cheat smh. Losing weight under so much pressure is hard as hell. Today I started a modified Master Cleanse in an attempt to jump start my body. I need to be 190 by June 12th and Im splintering around anywhere between 214-219 smh. Idk what im going to do. It seems like as soon as I hit 30, the weight stopped melting off. Im stressed about this but trying to keep motivated.
