So glad I found this site! I am a 42 year old single mom. I have been living with depression,anxiety, diabetes and heart disease, I'm ready to make a change in my life and it may sound like whining, but I just want to be able to look in the mirror again...it's been so long...I'm scared.

Finally putting some "before" pics since surgery...

Finally putting some "before" pics since surgery is in 3 days. I's gonna be a "big" surgery as you can see.

Posted some after pics but they are only 3 days after so there is a lot of swelling and bruising and draining tube. And yes I am definitely glad I went through with it!

Some more after pics. I am definitely stretched...

Some more after pics. I am definitely stretched and swollen almost beyond capacity as you can see in these new pics. Very uncomfortable. I'm bigger now than the day after surgery. Also, the drain tube was taken out so that's one good thing. How long will this swelling last? I don't think my skin can stretch much more without popping!

Well, it's two months post op now and swelling has...

Well, it's two months post op now and swelling has gone. I'm really loving the fact that I don't have a huge belly to cover with a big shirt anymore. Depression has gotten better along with self confidence and the ability to zip up my pants :) I like not having to buy extra long shirts anymore to cover my lower abdomen. I was wearing a size 2X shirt to cover everything, now I'm in an extra-large size. Sometimes I forget and I still reach down after a shower to my lower belly area and try to pick up the roll that was there so I can towel dry under it, but the roll is gone, just a flat stomache to dry now...it makes me smile every time. A big weight has been lifted from my life! :) Will post some new pics soon as I can!
