Hello everyone, first off I would like to say how much I enjoy reading everyone’s blog and how much it has helped me. I am a single mother to 3 wonderful children 11, 7, 4 all delivered by-c section. I could blame my unfortunate body on carrying babies, breast feeding and c-sections but that would be a lie. The truth is I was built like a brick **** house and gaining weight as a child did not help that. I have thunder thighs, a gut even before babies and saggy, lifeless boobs. I have never been able to wear a bikini or skirt or dress comfortably.
As a child I had very low self esteem and no confidence, as I got older I started losing weight and gaining self esteem and confidence and by the time I was 21 I was at my lowest weight 149lbs and even though I am not quite 5’4” it is a good weight for me. At the same time I found out I was pregnant, go figure. I gained around 40 lbs with each pregnancy and fortunately had no problem losing all but about 5 lbs in very little time, which I still feel comfortable with. However, I also smoked for 17 years; I quit smoking Nov. 2008 cold turkey and gained nearly 50lbs, in 9months, which hasn’t been so easy to lose.
I have worked my butt of and I have lost 53 lbs since May of 2010, which is more than I gained. I want to lose 10-15 more lbs be I have surgery. I have my first consult on Tuesday Sept. 4th. I am going now for just lipo on arms, inner thigh, outer thigh, abs, flanks, just below the butt and breast augmentation.
