  1. Hi Sydneymum so glad to be in touch with you again, it was awesome going through all of this with you a year ago, your support then was amazing, and thank you for that again! My main exercise is running, I do a bit on the bike as well, and here and there a bit of weights, oh and dabbled with some yoga on the xbox for a while as well. Running is very addictive, if I had been told that a year ago I would have laughed it off, but now if I don't run I get very antsy ha ha, like a drug addict. My husband which has never done a stitch of exercise has now started feeling guilty and wants to join me and start a running program like c2k5. Orangevegie, good luck with your running for next year, and you should find that after the TT your core strength is much better.
  2. I seem to have a problem with my old pics, I have tried to reload them as well, if anyone else if having a problem viewing them, let me know and I will try again. Maybe the universe wants them to disappear as well lol
  3. Thanks for all the replies, Taniya I was not out to lose weight, I lost about 3 kg after the surgery, and as I started running the extra weight came off. With regards to my tummy the weight loss has made no difference, but it has made a difference to my boobs as they have shrieked and sagged a bit but still 100 % better than they were, and one of the reasons I will have implants later on. Tho strange I have always had a really full C cup and don't really like big boobs, so I am enjoying the smaller ones, also because I had bigger breasts I could never wear push bra's which I now do and love them. So still a happy ending all round for me.
  4. Wow, I cant believe a year has gone passed since this life changing event, but before I get ahead of myself let me start at the beginning… Today a year ago I faced what was to be my most dreamed of situation, but also the most terrifying. All my life I had dreamed of perky boobs and a flat stomach, which no amount of exercise was prepared to give to me. On the other hand, I had heard dreadful stories, been warned of everything that could go wrong, the pain etc etc, but the decision had been made and I decided to follow my gut and do something for myself come what may. So into hospital I went, put my body into the hands of a qualified professional Dr Mark Lee here in Perth, and had a Tummy tuck with liposuction and a breast lift. A 3 hour operation that has changed my life forever. Yes there was some pain, managed very well by my anaesthesiologist, yes there was plenty of bruising, but waking up and after a day seeing the flat stomach and the boobs that at that stage was still up to my chin – AMAZING. I had the normal recovery of walking bent over for about 10 days, wearing the support garments that at the beginning irritated me and was all itchy and scratchy, but by the end I did not want to part with J I was also lucky that I could take 4 weeks off for the operation and work from home, which made a big difference. Wow, the amazing feeling of being able to wear a lovely dress to a year-end function, that hugged curves I had and not just see flabby tummy. Being able to wear a bikini during the December holiday and not feel embarrassed. Seeing my husband admire me again, priceless. Buying new clothes…awesome. On the subject of buying new clothes, I had expected that my pants size would go down, but never expected the big drop I had in tops as well. 6 weeks after the operation I started walking, just around the neighbourhood, got some encouragement and started doing a bit of running in between as well after 8 weeks. Went on holiday, and came back even more rejuvenated, I had a spring in my step, I felt better about myself as a person, I felt like I could look people in the eye and they did not just see this hideously shaped person in front of them. (My self-esteem had been at an all-time low when I decided to have this done). I started running more frequently, and today I look back at all the changes that have occurred in my life, yes I have always tried to stay fit, but had given up when my body did not change (i.e. could never get rid of the tummy). I have since taken part in a couple of 10k races and completed 2 half marathons, I have lost an additional 10kgs, I had the self-esteem to realise that my job was making me incredibly unhappy and have now been in a new job for 3 months. My husband absolutely adores the new me, of course he loves the boobs and the flat stomach, but more importantly he loves the fact that I have come out of my shell and being the woman he first met. So I went from being 62kg to 52kg, from a size 14 top and 12 bottoms to size 8 top and 8/6 bottom. If anyone asks is there anything I regret, yes, I should maybe have gotten a small implant at the same time, but not realizing that I was going to lose weight (it had not been part of the equation at the time) I did not think I needed to have any more filling. Though now it is on the cards in about 2 years’ time J I am also not very happy with my belly button, and I am going to have a tattoo put around it to hide the scar. Besides that, I have absolutely no regrets, I would do it all in a heartbeat again. For those that want to have a look at my photos, just FR me. There are before, after, and 1 year after. For those of you going through it at the moment, good luck, and may it be as positive a life changing event for you as for me. Take care
  5. I turned 40 last year, and it was my birthday present to myself. Still have many years ahead of me, and I wanted to feel better about myself, and want to enjoy it while I can. Best thing I ever did.
  6. Congrats Kimmie, and good luck for the rest of the recovery.

    Mac credit

    Hi jenlt I looked at Mac credit, but their interest rate is really high, if you want to go the loan option, look at getting a personal loan through your bank, you'll get a better rate.
  8. I used the Kelocote, and my scar was looking fantastic, ran out over the xmas break, and used bio oil during the time, my scar did not get worse, but dit not continue to improve either, so I started using Kelocote 2 weeks ago again, and my scar has definately improved again. I am definately going to continue using Kelocote.
  9. Hi staceymjm I had those same feelings, was soo worried, hubby made me do a list of all our accounts and passwords everything so that I would know that everything would be taken care. Looking back now I think I was so silly, but we are allowed to have our fears as well. I think it is just the way society has made us women become paranoid, we dont look good (magazines) but when we try to then we are vain etc etc. I'm 40 now, so I waited a long time, also thinking of the kids, and I need to do things for them first and typical mom put everything on the back burner and led countless years of misery thinking how bad I look. I should have done it ages ago, I am sure I would have been a much happier person - more contented in myself. Hubby is amazed by the different person I have become, more self assured. So go for it, and enjoy it!!
  10. Well done on coping so well mmj84. Good luck for tomorrow bellabelly.
  11. Hi miz lisa That can be very common according to my ps. To combat that he lipo'd by hips to create a more realistic look.
  12. Welcome kimmie and Kb2904 I had my TT and BL with lipo in Oct, and never looked back, best thing I ever did. It is cheaper doing it all together, I know in my case the surgeon also gives you a discount if you do 2 or more procedures together, and of course anaesthetic is only once as is the hospital stay. My youngest was 4, and it was still difficult in the beginning as he wanted to be picked up, but he got used to it pretty quickly and now never asks to be picked up - he became a big boy in that time You will definately have a belly button, it stays in the same position, with the skin stretched over it, they just make a cut, and join it in again. I'm sure your surgeon will show you how it is done. My TT and BL was covered by medicare and I got some back from my private health fund. Good luck it can be very daunting at the outset, but you'll be glad you did.
  13. Hi there I am now 3 months post op, and still get those pains, they come and go. I remember reading in one of the posts that those are just the nerves mending again.
  14. *waves* hi all, welcome Marie, great to hear you have a date, hope its marked on the calender with a big red ring I've started getting some swelling again, so I'm back to wearing my binder everyday. Can agree with the mirror, never wanted to look at it, now admiring myself all the time - so funny, but it does look great after all these years. Running everyday, but want to get into some abwork to define, but still a bit hesitant. Think I will look at it more closely again in the new year. Take care everyone
  15. I had my surgery with Dr Lee, and I am extremely happy and of course would recommend him, but at the end of the day, do your research and go with the Dr you feel most comfortable with.
