I have big news!! BIG!!
I honestly don’t know how I’ve managed to keep my mouth shut this long. It’s all I can think about. And really all I can talk about. Maybe I was afraid to blog about it though. That somehow making it all public like that would jinx it or something.
It seems like everything is a go now. So I can FINALLY tell you!! Are you ready??
I am getting…… a ……. TUMMY TUCK!!!
June 16th is the big day!!
I know, I know…. Some of you probably hate me now. Jealousy is a bitch. I know. Believe me.. I know.. I’ve called lots of super models some very ugly names because they had perfect tummies. Especially those ones who have had kids and their tummies are still perfect and they say that they owe it all to their great genes or some other crap like that. Blech. At least I am honest. I am getting surgery! I apparently do not have miracle tummy genes.
Anyways, I’ve been getting some curious (rude) comments about my upcoming surgery from sorta kinda friends and sorta kinda family. Mostly from people who don’t know me very well and have obviously never seen my bare stomach. One opinion is that I am skinny, what would I need a tummy tuck for? The other is that I should just diet and exercise. Ha! Yea, cause I haven’t been doing that for the last 2 years.
I have had 4 boys grow inside this tummy. The twins did the most damage. They were huge! I carried them to full term and I was carrying almost 15 pounds of baby around. My stomach was HUGE. The muscles completely separated. And my belly button was pointing to the ground. Let’s put it this way, when the doctor walked in to do the C-section he said “Wow, well someone is gonna need plastic surgery.”
Believe me when I say there is no amount of diet and exercise that can fix this. And yes, I am skinny. But just because I am skinny doesn’t mean the muscles in my stomach are going to grow back together. Or that the skin is going to magically shrink. I think all you moms can certainly relate! Unless of course you have miracle tummy genes….. And if that’s the case, you can bite me.
This is what I normally look like. I’m about 5’5 and weigh between 124 and 127. I wear a size 5 and sometimes if I’m lucky I can wear a size 3! (And you can bet if the tag says size 3 I LOVE that brand!!) I have learned how to suck in my gut and hide it well with clothes and jeans that are not two sizes too small. I exercise and try to eat healthy most of the time. (Except for my little foodcations!)
If I were to pull up my shirt however………….This is what you would see:
See that little flap of skin and fat that hangs down? I can NOT wait til it’s gone!! It’s so gross and it hurts when it gets squished with jeans.
There’s my belly button! Ew! It’s been totally turned inside out 3 times!
Can you believe that on June 16th all that gross skin will be stretched nice and smooth? My plastic surgeon is going to give me a brand new belly button too!!! She is also going to lace up those separated muscles. So they will be all nice and tight again! Yay!! Finally all my ab work will show.
In exactly 6 weeks I will get to wear a bikini!!! I am so freakin’ excited!! (It takes 6 weeks to heal from a tummy tuck.)
I am going to be in a lot of pain after the surgery. But I am going to try and blog about the experience. And take pictures of the healing process. If it’s not too icky anyways!
Remember, I am going to be very loopy for awhile… So if I leave some bizarre comment on your blog, or if you call me and I sound like a whack job (more so than usual) it’s the Percocet and the Valium talking. Or at least that’s gonna be my excuse for awhile.
