Merry Christmas!
I was a size 2x- 3x in tops pre-op- - now a size L...only 2 weeks out!! hooray!! As for pants...I was able to get a pair of pre-op jeans on...barely buttoned but i am very very swollen in my thighs and hips yet but....it is going down each day. I am able to wear xl stretchy slacks comfortably and they look nice tho. (used to be 2-3x too) So far I've lost 22 lbs just in surgery, but I have been able to drop another 6 since then...my date was 12/8. If you take a peek at my pre-op pics you'll see ALL of my problem was my tummy.....ewwwww....I did have a LOT of lipo for help in other areas and plan to begin exercising as soon as cleared (bought myself a weight machine and stepper for Christmas)...I still need to drop several more lbs. As for "dieting" I have been on a calorie restricted diet (900-1000 cals/day)for a little over a year and have lost over 100 lbs. Altho for this period of surgery and recovery I have lifted the restrictions some for healing purposes (and the yummy holiday treats) I wll begin again after the new year. I started my journey at a size 28/30 jeans- down to an 18 day of surgery....My goal is a size 12 when all is said and done. So you can do this too....hang in there!! I only have my daughters for my support system and did it. Lots of encouragement your way and have a fabulous Christmas!!!!

How many sizes have you lost since Tummy tuck? 3

How much weight after TT? 5 lbs

Was all your weight in your tummy for those who lose sizes?? Yes! I had a ton of loose skin and stretch marks...now I have no fat on my tum...rock hard.

How are you able to lose sizes? Any changes made in diet or exercize? At 2 weeks post-op I started a low carb diet and did that for 2 weeks. It relievs swelling and you lose weight so I reccomend it.

How many sizes have you lost since Tummy tuck?
Four

How much weight after TT?
Between 5 and 10 lbs

Was all your weight in your tummy for those who lose sizes??
Yes - tummy was huge & ugly

How are you able to lose sizes? Any changes made in diet or exercize? I haven't tried to lose weight/size. I think weight loss was caused from soft diet after surgery. Drop in size was after the removal of skin/fat from tummy. I am just now getting into exercize and cutting calories. :roll: (Party is over!) I joined curves. It's similar to circuit training (weights/cardio). It looks like some fun. At my orientation, they took weight/height, body fat, and measured me then asked what size I would like to be? I checked the 7/8 box and mentioned that I would like to be there by March. That's my size goal. They mentioned that it was doable if I lose 31 inches all over my body, drop 7% fat, and lose 20 lbs. (I'm grinning ear to ear. I don't know if it will work but it's worth a shot.)

I am having a tough time and am still same size, just a little baggier than pre op.
FTT/MR/BL/BA on Nov 4th? That's quite a bit of work. Do you have alot of swelling?

It looks like you're a few weeks behind me. I only had a FTT/MR and LIP on flanks and I'm dealing with lots and lots of swelling. I can only imagine the swelling you're dealing with.... :shock: I'm sure if you give it some time you will be blooming by Spring!!! :D

Take care and hang in there!!!

I haven't lost any weight or sizes.
BUT
that's because it's the holidays, and I can't stop eating fudge, cookies and junk..
I'm the same wt.
And I can get in all my pre op clothes.

I go to WW and will hit it hard come thefirst of the new Year. I only have about 9 lbs to reach my goal. (I've lost 37 since last January)

My goal is sz 8 (to fit nice, not snug- I can get in an 8 now - but can't move or breath) I'm now a nice fitting 10.

How many sizes have you lost since Tummy tuck?


5 sizes smaller...went from 12 to 7 (and the occasional 6)


How much weight after TT?


22 lbs lost since TT

Was all your weight in your tummy for those who lose sizes??


No, but it was a HUGE factor. I'd say I probably lost about 2-3 sizes almost immediately, just from the TT. Since then, I've slimmed my hips and thighs and pretty much everywhere.

For me, in the tummy, it wasn't so much about weight as loose, disfigured skin. The MR nipped my waist in tighter than it ever was.



How are you able to lose sizes? Any changes made in diet or exercize?

I don't diet: I eat sensibly and excersize. These were changes I made before the TT (lost about 35 lbs before TT). So I just continued along the same track, really. Could only excersize lightly for a while, but walking is a great excersize, so that's what I mainly did when I couldn't do weights or anything.

I find that, now, everyone is telling me how skinny I am, and that I am about to disappear, and that I should stabilze my weight and stop losing...thing is, I'm not really trying to lose weight, per se. I'm trying to tone and firm lots of areas, and sculpt muscle, etc. I just think it's hysterical when they day those things.

How many sizes have you lost since Tummy tuck? From 10 to 6 (some 8's depend on style)

How much weight after TT? 6 pounds

Was all your weight in your tummy for those who lose sizes?? Yes

How are you able to lose sizes? All I had was a ftt so the fat was from there but not all gone ps says fat is behind muscle

Any changes made in diet or exercize? Right now I have been stepping up the excercise and trying to stay even through the holiday but once the new year starts I am cutting back on calories and exercising to hit my areas that bug me. The gym is having a special on trainers so I signed up for three sessions to get some pointers.

Ladies,
How many sizes have you lost since Tummy tuck?
I am 2.5 weeks post op and still the same size 6/8 I am happy being this size and not having the 4 inches of skin hanging over my jeans.

How much weight after TT?
they sucked out 6 pounds, but i don't weigh myself

Was all your weight in your tummy for those who lose sizes??

My stomach was the biggest part of my body

How are you able to lose sizes? Any changes made in diet or exercize?
I went from a size 18 to the current size by running and changing how I eat. I now run marathons, sprint triathlons , lift 4-5 times a week,and stay as active as I can and eat whole grains, lots of fruit and veggies and leans meats.

I was into a size 12 Pre-op and am a BEAUTIFUL size 12 post-op.

I lost about 7 lbs with the surgery. I haven't started a 'serious' regimen yet, but planning to get in gear soon.

I fully support weight watchers, and I think you are beautiful Kelly. Lets all support eachother!

I'm about 5 months po FTT/MR/LIPO FLANKS. I've lost about 20 lbs. and that depends upon how much I've eaten. I bought my first pair of size 6 skinny jeans yesterday! I used to wear a 16. I'm also 4'11" and I'm 58 years old. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am about this procedure! :lol:

Kel-

I am same size, same weight :( BUT I have also been indulging this season......I'm going BALLS OUT like 90% of the rest of America after Xmas. I think I'll see a big diff if I can lose 15 lbs. by summer (I'm a slow loser). I really wish I could work out hard, but I'm still only able to walk on the treadmill.

Thanks for the reminder, though. I'm going to go throw out all my Holiday sins right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
