Lot's Of Prayers Sent My Way Please Ladies...Tummy Tuck in 3 DAYS! - Washington, DC

Well hello Real Self World! Im 31 year old female...

Well hello Real Self World! Im 31 year old female with a beautiful 2 yr old boy. I thank God for my little man, but not what its done to my tummy!!! I've been pretty fit all my life, pretty tummy, but since ive had my son i hate my tummy and its really got me feeling real down about myself. Im always wearing spanx and things to hold me in and im sick of it!!! I have a twin sister who has gotten a tummy tuck after 2 kids and i fell in love! So im going to go to the same Dr and im excited! His name is Dr. Ronald Pearlman and he has a office in D.C.Ill post his info later on once i get everything together...I'll also post pics of me before and after. Im nervous and scared because tummy tuck do not look fun at all!! Im also getting lipo of my flanks and back...and also he's giving me fat injections in my ass...sounds like a lot right? I know. But I loved the work he did on my sister and hes amazing! So im ready!!! Ill keep you all updated as we get closer. ill post pic tomorrow when i wake up...tootles!

Well tomorrow will be the day! Im excited but...

Well tomorrow will be the day! Im excited but honestly spending all this $ is really getting to me...I like to have a fat bank account and this is going to pretty much empty it when its all said and done. I keep telling myself I can get it back and it will be okay...Its all worth it right? Geesh I find myself finding more excuses like i did last year when i was supposed to get it done but i didnt get this far though. anywho, just a little venting i guess...As long as im doing this for myself and not in hopes of getting my ex back and things of that matter ill be ok, although that would be nice i think its just not going to happen...

So i still have to fill in my meds and go a little food shopping, from what im hearing i wont be wanting to eat anything for atleast a few days, but its very important because i dont want to be throwing up everywhere from the pain meds...Im here thinking about how the hell im going to sit on my bum when i cant, are there pillows i need to get like boopy pillows? I wonder if the drains are going to get in the way of my laying on my sides. I hope not...gosh im so back and fourth with this whole thing, has anyone felt like me, im probably sure but its nice to know im not alone...i wish i can forget about what i spending but i cant and i hope i dont wake up when its all said and done like wtf did i just do, i want to enjoy this process...i honestly cant stand this loose skin that i carry around and my back fat, i cant do it, and yes ive been workingout but i guess not like i should be but it gets depressing when you feel like its going to take forever for the fat to melt away...so why not get it sucked out..and placed in a great place like your bum...lol my twin sis is against the fat transfer but all for the tummy tuck. she says its not going to last. The doc says hes going to get 300cc in each cheek...thats not a lot is it? i wanted like 1000cc but he said i didnt have enough fat...which really the only fat i have is my tummy, sides and back...so we'll see...Ill keep yall updated in a bit...i have to call in to work and tell them im not coming in because i have to be at the hospital at 755am so me bartending tonight aint happening...lol tootles

Tonight i guess ill have to take pics and post them so you all know what I looked like before my son and after my son...

It shouldnt be too bad, i still have to get some things done before i go in, like fill in my meds...i know last minute right??? Ill learn...smh but my roommate told me to write a list ans shell pick it up tomorrow for me so thats cool...i dont have a car right now so its hard getting around...i should be buying a vehical right?? lol well this body should help with that later...lol anyways its 428pm and i work a 5pm so i gotta go...ill keep yall posted...

Well today is the day...really excited. i worked lastnight so im a bit tired. my roommate is getting up now to take me...wow, its finally happening. im a little hungry and not too bad. geesh i just had to get my money all together for the surgical fee and ana fee...2,600 bucks!!! this is very expensive so it better be worth it. right now im just taking this time out to praise God and ask that he protect me and guide those doctors hands. I have faith ill be ok. well guys gotta run so ill update as soon as i can..,,.i know i still havnt posted pic yet but trust me i will soon!!! until next time tootles!

I know it's been awhile, I've been trying to heal, still painful, I have my ups and downs, I'm emotional. I just want to feel normal again. My results are great, would I do it again? No. If you're thinking about doing this surgery make sure you really know what your getting into. It's not an easy recovery. My stomach hurts, burns, the swelling is terrible every morning I wake up stiff and on pain. Everyday I feel something different that hurts. Honey, Lipo ain't no joke!!! It hurts more than than tt!!! And also fat injections in the butt I don't really know about it yet...my left butt cheek is hard and hurts. I'm just so over this whole recovery! I'll update in a few.. :(

Well I feel a little better took a shower. Getting ready for my sisters baby shower. This morning was real ruff...these meds have serious side effects. I'm going to try and cut then down slowly...don't wanna withdraw...my tummy tuck incision doesn't look bad, I can tell I'm going to love my body...I just wanna walk around naked in front of whoever without covering up shit! Can't wait! An I going to feel better soon? My butt is not that big but it's a lot better than what it was...it has shape....that all I want...well I want a big ass but I'll do that later...lol here is a pic of my butt before and after....

Well today i went to my twins sisters baby shower...

well today i went to my twins sisters baby shower and honestly i can say i feel great, except im really constipated. I switched meds from demerol to vics and and i dont like that shit cause vics makes me stuffed up. im feeling minimal pain, and my waist is going down says my sis which makes me feel really good. when i look at myself naked i smile!! im happy and i can say tonight is is better night than any other. I feel good i might even go out low key, i know i shouldnt but my girl is in town and she wanna go to the strip club with me and my sis. lol...im cray cray right? I may go to work on monday. need the money. gotta talk to my doc first and sees what he says. i trust him so we shall see...ill update you guys later! bye ladies and yes it does get better...lol

today i feel like poo...this morning i woke up in a lot of pain. burning, stiff and achy. i hate this feeling. i had to call my doc because im sick of feeling this way and i want to know if this is really normal. i am now regretting what i did. im so sick of this up and down feeling like im about to die then im feeling great. yesterday i felt great. today i just wanna cry. gotta go, shower and try to massage i guess.

Today was a great day! Feeling better. Saw my Doc...

Today was a great day! Feeling better. Saw my Doc and he put my mind at ease. Everything I'm feeling is normal so I feel blessed, I am blessed. Today I went to the mall to try on dresses, omg!!! Bomb.com my sis is saying girl your back!!! I'm so happy. I can't believe after having my son my body totally went downhill, it's amazing even you feel and look good regardless if what's going on you deal with it with a smile! Very happy today ladies!! Oh and I'm in live with my belly botton! FYI when getting a tt that can be a dead give away and it looks so natural! I love my doc. I can't wait tell I'm able to workout. It's going to be a problem...lol, sorry for all my ups and downs but one thing about me is that I'm real and I'm not a fake bitch who will make shit sound great when it really not. So I'll continue in my journey and thanks for tuning in and actually letting my share this with you all! ;-)

Loving the new me!! I'm back! Feels so great!...

Loving the new me!! I'm back! Feels so great! Recovery is getting better z although I do have an infection in my left butt cheek. Pisses me off. I can't take the antibiotics because they make me really sick. So today I see my doctor to see what's up. Besides that everything is well. Still a lot of swelling and my sides hurt the most but for the most part I'm ok. Well I'll update soon... :-)

Infection GONE!! Went to the docs and everything seems ok! Also where I got my hernia repair above my belly button still hurts and sore!! And still wearing these garnets and their getting on my nerves! I think on Monday I'm getting steroid shots so that I don't keloid. That's a must. I love my results but honey this has been a bumpy road. Recovery isn't easy. But my Doc has been supportive. I'm really swollen today... :-( hurts. But I'll be ok!! Until then tootles!
