I am a mother of 4 amazing kids that are 22,20, 6 and 5. From the time I had my first child....who was over 9lbs the toll was evident on my body. Even though I loved being pregnant I was not happy with the stretch marks and left over skin each pregnancy left behind and made worse with each new baby but it would take me 22 years to make the dream of my flat tummy and breasts that are not sagging a reality and a gift to myself.
I am now a 41 year old single working mom with a full time career and an even busier full time life and decided to do this for myself. It has taken me the last 2 years of saving and planning but not without a few set backs to get to this point. I had a small health scare when my doctor found a that needed to be removed and biopsed and my surgery would need to wait. Then ex had some things that would make me as a 100% full time parent for almost 6 months so my surgery would have to wait.
But here I am ready to move forward with a full clean bill of health and the help of an amazing support system of friends. Now I am here with 30 days to go my big day. I decided to post as so many of the entries have helped me with planning. I will be chronicalling just how I manage to get ready and prepare for my surgery and the recovery in the midst of juggling all the things in my life. To help I have decided to do hot yoga everyday for the next 30 days to get in better shape and mostly to manage the stress. I will be updating every few days what I get done. Today I started with the lists....things I need to get info to gather. The calendar of all the days I will need help for with the kids. I am taking off from work for 8 days so I will be off for almost 2 weeks and I sure hope this enough. Will post some lovely pics soon.
