I am 42 yrs old 5'4" and 200 +or- a few #'s. I gave birth to 2 boys (22 and 9). I have had several surgeries and after a etopic in 2006 I was left with a lopsided dunlap of fat. I have wanted to do a TT for years.Finally debt free and ready to go. I recently lost my dad so I am still pretty emotional so I am hoping while I recover I do not have a balling spree as I have read things like that and sneezing,coughing and laughing are the worse.
I just took some pics of my belly and OMG what a shock I never realized how bad my strech marks are I guess cuz I can't see them over the fat..LOL...
I have been reading this site for hours and have been inspired by many so I decided to attempt this (even though I am no computer whiz)in hopes to inspire someone else on their journey. I currently live in Lakeland, Fl and I will be using a Dr. in Maitland,Fl about 1.5 to 2 hours from my home which the drive concerns me afterwards as I have a new car and don't want throw up in it...how stupid is that? HAHA!
I am getting a full TT and lipo on my hips on Friday and I can't wait. I hope my results turn out as well as some of the ones I have seen. I have tried to look at before and after shots of people who I think I look sort of like. I must say I am concerned since the dr said" you'll still be thick" not sure exactly what that meant but I'm OK with thick as long as I don't have the dunlap.I wear a 16 and I know I will still wear a 16 afterwards but they should fit better and would love to be asble to feel good about tucking in a shirt again.
To be frank...I am not a dieter, and do not exercise so losing weight has not been a priority which I know sounds crazy but it's the truth. I am hoping with the dunlap gone I will be more inspired to start walking and maybe exercise some. I have although started watching what I eat better so that is a start. I am starting to get freaked out but excited just the same. I will have to stay overnight with the dr. so I hope all goes well, I have been preping for this for awhile and I just know there nis something I will miss or forget. I would welcome ANY suggestions for before and after prep. Thanks to everyone for reading. I'll update as I go..Wish me luck!!!
