I got an estimate for liposuction on my stomach and thighs. It would be about $2500 each, which is a little higher than I'd hoped. My husband thinks I'm crazy and won't even entertain the idea. The doc said I didn't have fat in my belly, it's just stretched from my pregnancies I guess. She said I'd probably lose an inch, maybe two, it would take about six months to see results, and she wanted me to walk for an hour every day. I've lost more than two inches exercising and wouldn't walking an hour a day (which is more than I do now) allow me to lose an inch or two in six months, anyway?
I'm still interested in doing my thighs, though. They look good in the front but I have like a bulge on the side/back where fat has accumulated. It's smaller than it used to be but it's going away at a much slower rate than anything else. And when I sit, my thighs spread. I don't like that. I'm not working right now so the goal is to work out 3-4 days a week until Christmas. I'll see what happens then. The prospect of liposuction has gotten a little scarier after Kayne's mom and Usher's wife's death and cardiac arrest but I've lost a lot of weight and want to see the results.
