I WANT A TUMMY TUCK & I WANT IT NOW!!!!!
I am a 27 year old mother of 3. My kids are 10,8, & 3 y/o. I have always had a negative body image of myself , I always thought i was fat, and struggled with my weight... Now that I think about it, before kids I weighed as much as 128lbs, at 5'3... Now, when I look back on things, there was NEVER anything wrong with me, and I would KILL to be that weight & a perfect size 7 again!!! I had my first child at the age of 17, I gained about 40 pounds and that came off within a year, but i was left with the flabby belly, kangaroo pouch & stretch marks, although I found myself back at 137lbs and a size 7/9. When I got pregnant 2 years later, I gained another 30 pounds and after that pregnancy I never seemed to bounce back. I got into a bad marriage , where i suffered 3 miscarriages and I stayed at about 180-194 range. I would gain weight and loose weight but I never escaped the double digits in clothing.
After my divorce, by God's Amazing Grace, I met the love of my life. I got pregnant I only gained 25 pounds this pregnancy, but I gave birth to a 9lbs baby. I'm not sure how he managed to stay inside me or make it out of me naturally, but he did!
Prior to thisI always seemed to loose some baby weight after my kids, but with this last kid, birth control, I have found myself at my highest weight ever, 220!!! I know that my birth control has alot to do with it, so I am looking into a tubal ligation to eliminate this crazy hormonal weight gain! I dont want to be 128 again but i do want to be proportionate. I have a good overall frame, a natural hourglass shape, But this kangaroo pouch/ muffin top is like my arch enemy, and working out only seems to make it worse! Its like the more I work out, the smaller my ass gets and the more prominent my belly gets, this is so abnormal for me! I must be getting old!
I eat healthy and I have just started on Qsymia, and I am trying to lose about 25lbs, prior to my surgery, which I plan to have near my birthday (3/9) in early March 2014. I am wanting to have a tummy tuck because i want my clothes to fit better and I would like to stop wearing my Body Magic & this crazy corset, that makes me look nice, but bruises me up, like I've been in a Bar fight!!! LOL.
I am a bit of a diva &I also sing in a gospel group and just to go onstage I have to put on layers of underwear just to feel normal and unashamed of my body, this includes:
SPANX, boyshort panties, corset, bra, control top pantyhose and a fitted dress slip with a built in bra!!!
I'm seriously tired of this crap! One day I'm gonna die of heat exhaustion or cut off my circulation wearing all this crap!
I am in Tampa, FL and I'm looking to go to Premiere Center (Dr. Scott Loessin), because they are close and have in house financing, I am also considering Dr. Wendell Perry in Miami, and Dra.Walkiris Robles in Dominican Republic Any suggestions on surgeons, ladies?
