Recommended Posts

My doctors kept saying I was ready, so I met with plastic surgeon. He said I'm perfect candidate now, and he's ready when I am. He even said no Lipo because all I have is skin not fat. I had my surgery in June 2017. I've been maintaining since January basically. I'm 142 pounds. I was about 237 pounds. He's suggesting Tummy Tuck and breast lift. What's your opinions?20180512_164058.jpg20180511_175545.jpg

I say if the procedures will help you feel better and confident then GO FOR IT! You deserve to be the "you" you want to be.

Do it. If both your doc and the plastic surgeon agree that you're ready, I wouldn't hesitate. I didn't wait the full recommended period post-bypass either, because I had lost all of my excess weight and was in good shape. I haven't regretted it for even a second.

Is there a question here? We change our clothes to fit - why not the skin? If you want the PS - do it!

I have also been told I can go ahead. I’m 6 lbs from goal weight and I will be there by July. I’m over 50 so there s really no reason to wait. My diet is pretty permanent, I eat super healthy and low carb. So I don’t see me “ruining” the plastics by suddenly turning to junk food I haven’t eaten in years. Life is short, hon.

By the way, I wasn’t sure which person in any of the pics was you, nor does it matter. If the surgeon is fine with your doing plastics now, and you are, then go for it. However, if that is your newborn, I could see you choosing to do it sooner rather than later, because you won’t be able to pick her up and stuff for a while, and frankly, when babies are younger, they can handle a substitute better than later sometimes... just another reason to proceed and be in great shape after when she is crawling or mobile.

You look great! Congrats on reaching your goal and getting to this point. I can’t believe it myself (that I am almost here). That’s good you don’t have a tiny baby, and your big kids can help. I am single so I am concerned I might need to hire a nurse / mama’s helper to come in for a few days. I might jut start with boobs alone.

      NSV today. I have been wearing my size 26 jeans which have been getting roomy. So today I decided to try on my size 24 Lane Bryant jeans and see if I could get into them. Not only can I get into them, they are also loose. That made me feel super happy this morning. Weight is still 243 but the inches are definitely moving.

      Tried a few bites of pasta (protein-enriched penne) tonight. No foamies or anything, but didn't sit well. I'm sad about it, but at least now I know and can move on to trying other things, maybe revisit it when I'm further out.

      This is going to sound really freaking weird but I feel like I am in the twilight zone ... like this is all a bad dream I am going (or hoping) to wake up from. I hate food! I mean I fscking hate it! It tastes like saw dust ... I am never hungry and never have a desire to eat. Eating hurts and no one knows really WTF is going on. I mean they think the cause of this is the stomach ulcer but what if all this stuff heals up and I am still messed up? I am down 60 pounds and almost 6" from my heaviest but I could care less. I sleep but it feels like I get none at all. When I wake up even though my stupid CPAP says, "Hey dumbass! You had less than 1 apnea an hour. GTFU!" It's supposed to be really easy to find work because unemployment is low, yet I keep getting turned down for work. At this point, I am like what next?

      My surgery is May 30, 2018 and I can not take this 2 weeks pre-op liquid, very hard and my shakes that I got from my doctors office has a funny taste.  What kind of shakes are you drinking for pre op

        I have the Premier Protein Water which I still have to water down to be able to stomach it. I would rather be on full clear liquid (which starts tomorrow!)
