Abdominoplasty, here I come!

Friday, November 20, 2009

I'm having the extra skin on my stomach removed on December 7th! I write a lot more about it on my weight loss blog on livejournal, so if you want to read about the journey, it's all posted there!


I'm nervous and excited about it, but I'll finally be able to wear sexy panties, bikinis, and most pants rather than maybe one very very high cut pair that I find occasionally. And also to be able to look at my stomach and see what most people see and not folds of extra skin! And then there's the back pain and the annoying bouncing that the skin does when I run... it's bigger than my boobs and needs a support garment to keep it stable.

I hope everything goes well!

    Hope your surgery went well. I will probably have to have a similar procedure done if I don't lose my "post pregnancy pooch" after getting to my goal weight...

    I'd love to hear how it went. I was contemplating the same thing if I should ever need it. I'll know when I get closer to my goal weight.
