Wow Wow Wow, I Got A Glimpse Of My New Tummy



Recommended Posts

I really really am. Dh dragged me out shopping and I bought pair of skinny jeans, as well as bikinis I have a serious True Religion habit, I mean who can resist a pair on sale for only $160???? No overhang at all, none!!!

I think its important that people truly realise this is a major trade off scar wise though. My scar will definitely not be below the panttyline for any underwear/lingerie that I own or would choose to wear, its higher than some of my jeans and it will require careful choice of bathing suits, although a bikini is still fairly easy, the low rise and string styles wont be possible, although all the scars i had were flat and colourless and one or two were pretty big so in a year when its all healed it really may not worry me. Might be a huge issue if you were only 25 though.

I was absolutely prepared for this by my PS who made it clear that becuse I didnt have. A lot of loose skin I couldnt have an ultra low scar. It mkes you think a lot of tjose caesarean birth/tummy tuck stories about stars such as Angelina are probably bogus.

Its really been remarkably pain free, but so frustrating! Other surgeries Ive had very morning I wake up ith huge improvement. This surgery is s-l-o-w, every days progress immeasureable until you think about where you were three or four days ago. Im scared i will turn into a blob from lack of exercise, lol.

Im a teacher, and timed it for the week before school holidays so that Id have three. Ive decided to take this week too, making four. Teaching is a surprisingly physical job, for a desk job two to three weeks would have been ample.

I'm a vice-principal of an elementary school so I hear you loud and clear ;) I was once told it would take about six weeks to recoup. I still have a ways to go before considering this surgery. I must say that you are inspiring. I'll get there hopefully in a year or so.

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
