Hello All,

As I’ve been spending some time back on forums choosing my surgeon for a Tummy Tuck, I thought I’d stop by and donate a little payback by answering some of your questions (to the best of my ability).

As seen above I used Dr E Ortiz.

My rating is as follows:




At surgery: 200lbs Lowest: 125lbs Year 3: 150lbs Year 4: 140lbs

*taking off the weight is the easy part ....... keeping it off is the hard part.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
