Did you use anything on your scars to help diminish them? I have an old Tummy Tuck scar that is ugly and 2 of my incision sites for this surgery look really bad. Not sure if they will heal as nice as yours. They used my old lap scar from when I had my hysterectomy years ago and stretched out my belly button :0 ! But I am hoping mine will heal as nicely as yours. I have a few years of age on me compared to you....but what it shakes out to look like. ....i will be happy!

You look amazing. I know you see imperfections, but most people would only see how great you look.

I did not use anything on my scars. I rarely put anything on my skin, not even lotion, so these scars are au natural ;)

whaaaaat. Girl, you look FABULOUS. I'm 20 years old and 5'3" and weigh more than you did at the start, but if I look ANYWHERE near as good as you when I hit my goal, I think I'll be jumping for joy. I can't tell that you ever even had a weight problem. ROCK ON!!!

Thanks so much for sharing! I have been googling scars heaps!! My stats are very similar in just a little taller. I have been dousing myself in lotions hoping it will help the skin bounce back. Can I ask, do you exercise a lot?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
