this is my 2nd new topic tonight. I just had to tell you guys something that happened to me today.
I told my neighbor "J"( Name withheld, who I thought was my friend) that I was having surgery and she seemed happy for me. Well 2 days ago I was talking to my other neighbor "L" (Name withheld) about my TT because she ran over to tell me how good I looked and that she was so happy for me, but also jealous of my results and that she's going to have one done before she goes to Iraq. Well we were out there talking for a little while when the "jealous" neighbors husband (Neighbor "J") walks on his porch and speaks to us. So I said "hello, tell your wife I said hello and to come outside, because I have to show her something." He said Ok and he will. Well me and "L" was still outside waiting on "J" to come outside, but she never did. So we talked for a few more mins then we went into our house.
Well fast forward to today, which is 2 days later, "J" see's my hubby outside so she told him to tell me to come outside to show her what I wanted to show her. So, when I go outside, she said "what did you want to show me?" I said "this, my Tummy. I had my TT, can't you tell?" and she said with a smug look on her face "NO! I can't tell. Maybe if you lost a little more weight, you'll look smaller." So I said well I LOVE my results and It was bigger than this 13 days ago. I then said "you know the pregnant look WE both have, I mean I had, well that came from the muscle separation that he fixed. You should have one too, you'll have a nice result."
Then she looked at me and said "No. I'm too chicken to go under the knife. I love my preggo belly just the way it is." I said "that's good."
Ladies, I swear, the pics I have up HONESTLY does NO justice. I'm seriously smaller. I measured my waist today and its 34 inches. I really wish the camera didn't make me look HUGE, other wise I would post more pics. Did you have this problem? I'm not 100% flat right now, but I will be in a few months.
I just wanted to get this off my chest. I hope to hear your responses to this.
HONEY!!! I can tell by the pics what a huge difference there is!!!!
Don't worry about that Jealousy Thing!!
My DH was in IRAQ when I had my surgery. He came back to " NOT WHAT I HAD PLANNED" Do you you want to hear absolutley CRUEL????
My NEW sister-in-law(who has alot to learn about this family)
SAID.... "SHE GOT WHAT SHE DESERVED!!!!!! That costs as much as a down payment for a house!!!!!"
It don't hurt me cause.... to me especially now... she is NOT my family!!! My Sister.. cut her off and defended me. Girl... I really thought about 4 months ago that I was gonna DIE.(b/c of the complications) There are some REALLY CRUEL,JEALOUS people in this world.... TURN A DEAF EAR to those HATERS!!!!!!! I saved up for my surgeries and waited YEARS... I know I deserved to be able to do it. I don't think I deserved a 7x5 inch hole in my belly... but I deserved to be able to do my TT.. and the rest!!!!
Oh THIS IS gettin' long... I'm sorry... I'm sick of jealousy and trivial shit!!!!Why don't people just say..." I WISH I HAD THE COURAGE TO DO WHAT YOU DID!!!???) I'm an ARMY wife.... The Air Force wife thing is the same... and some family are the same. Keep your head up GIRL!!!!! WE SEE THE DIFFERENCE cause WE AIN'T JEALOUS!!!!!!
There are so many jealous people out there. Don't even pay attection she is very jealous of you, I can tell from what she said. I can see a huge difference and you look great. Don't let stupid people get to u!
I won't ShypoopBear. I did at first, but then I decided not to. I posted a pic of me in a pink and black dress that I've had for 1 yr but never worn, that I tried on this morning. Do you see the difference?
how sad- I have such a supportive family, my sister inlaws want to put on a pot luck dinner for the whole family so we can have a extreme make over like reveal party!!! lol
They are so lovely - I know some people will be very rude but I am already prepared for it and to be honest I couldnt give a rats tinker what any one else thinks - I have made the best decision of my life!!! and am so happy with my results!! hey they can just be jealous!!!
You know what gets me? When I had a cancer scare my brother the asshole said " I knew that plastic surgery would get you in trouble!!!" Can we say STUPID??? But he and my father had no problem telling me how fat I was my whole life!
So many men say " oh you should just diet, you should't do plastic surgery" Then they break their neck over the babe with the dyed hair, big lips, big boobs, small waiste and perfect skin! Whats that..the natural look????? But if I decide to do any of those things I'm " crazy"
When women say stupid things I just say, hey no need to be jealous, I bet your husband woudl help you to come up with the money if he thought you would look any better! Mind you that probably would cause you to lose a lot of weight...your friend may never speak to you again. In my case I had no such luck though!

Oh you little cutie, you are so going to get better with time. First of all, you are a beautiful sista, with a beautiful family, and now a beautiful body. I can tell how you feel in your pics in the car. I worked out like a crazy woman and was still so depressed with my body, I can't tell you to what degree.
I found a great eating plan that helped me shed 45 lbs. and I've kept that off now for over 3 years, afterwhich, I made my plan for my "Mommy Makeover" and had a FTT/MR and my whole body lipo'd. I'm still wearing a size 8, but from the advice from women on this board, I will drop down possibly to a size 5-6.
I only told my girlfriends because they are super-supportive of me and I them. I won't tell anyone at work or women I know, but are catfish to me.
No worries to you, my dear. You made an excellent decision to take care of yourself and I applaud you.
When all else fails, dial 911!
Artese you are a beautiful woman. I agree with what the doctor said- wait till summer and get her back by wearing something sexy and tight!!!!! I looked at your pictures and I think you look great. My co-worker said my boobs were smaller after my breast lift. ACTUALLY I am in the same size bra now!!!!! My boobs look smaller because they are perky!!! I am still in a 36DD which is fine by me.
Enjoy your new body....
