I'm a 30 yr old mother of 2, 4 & 2 yr old beautiful & smart children. I was 116 lbs before I got pregnant with my 1st one, and I gained 50 lbs with my 1st. That was not easy to lose at all and part of it I guess was because I didn't really try very hard. But just when I began to lose weight again, I got pregnant with my 2nd one! I only gained 14 lbs with the 2nd pregnancy, but that plus all the left over from the 1st pregnancy, it was almost impossible. I guess there could have been more hope into it if I had started working out & dieting shortly after my 2nd one, but regular workout just didn't quite fit in the new lifestyle of a toddler & a baby. On top of that, I work 2 night shift jobs, so physically I was not up to exercising because I always have to catch with my sleep. And the stress just made the whole dieting messed up to. But like what they always say: there's an end to everything. The kids are bigger, so it's a little easier now.
Beginning Feb 2010, I started going to consultations for a mommy makeover, and really, deciding that I wanted something like this for me added a motivation into dieting better & working out more regularly. I breastfed both my kids, so that didn't leave me anything physically good, although I know they got what was best for them, and I'm really happy that I was able to give that to them. My stomach was of course not the same. Stretch marks, fatty, and weak. My lower back hurts when I try to do crunches. I guess because my abdominal muscles have really weakened a lot over the last years.
I am 5'1, initially 160 lbs but now down to 146 lbs. It's a week before my mommy makeover surgery and I'm nervous but really excited at the same time. Nervous because I've never had any sugery in my life & excited because I'll finally get my old tummy back, you know before the pregnancy, or maybe even better and I'm finally gonna get bigger boobs. Boobs I've never had because I've always been an A cup. So I'm gonna get silicone breast implants, a tummy tuck, and a lipo of the inner thighs, since this have been a problem to me ever since.
I wanted this so much that I wanted it to be my 31st birthday gift to myself. I'm really greatful for my super supportive husband, that although this have brought us some financial challenge, he still suported me in any way possible. Pics to follow.
