5 months post op today! Having a tummy tuck with muscle repair was the best thing I've done for myself! I started working out at the gym with a trainer and had amazing success! I just couldn't get rid of the pesky loose skin! Ugh! I still get a little swollen by the end of the day, but I'll take that over the saggy skin! A huge shout out to my trainer @juliezapf for pushing me harder than I ever would have pushed myself! I credit my quick recovery to to her for getting me in shape beforehand. Looking forward to even better results in the coming months!

4 months post OP Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair today! This tummy tuck journey has been interesting to say the least! So glad that I did this for myself! I finally feel like all of my hard work in the gym is starting to show in my midsection like it wouldn't before! Excited to see how this progresses over the months leading to my one year mark! #4monthspostoptummytuck #4monthspostop #4monthsposttummytuck #tummytuck #abdominoplasty #mytummytuckrecovery #mytummytuckprogress #mytummytuckjourney #tummytuckprogress #tummytuckjoutney #tummytuckrecovery #plastisurgery #postoptummytuck #postop #musclerepair #tummytuckwithmusclerepair #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou

Ok so here it goes...I started out the year 2017 at 158 pounds. Pretty much my heaviest ever. Keep in mind that I'm only 5'1". I decided to start going to the gym and working with a trainer and eating right. I lost a whopping 33 pounds last year and finally got in shape. I worked my ass off...literally! Lol! But, that saggy skin wasn't going anywhere no matter what I did! I've used just about every lotion, cream, oil, potion you can think of to try and get rid of it and nothing worked! I finally broke down and just did it and got the tummy tuck I have always talked about getting and I have no regrets! I'm not perfect by any means and I don't expect to be. I'm just happy that all of my hard work in the gym might actually be noticeable now in my midsection. The recovery for this procedure was NO JOKE! If you are considering doing it, please do your research and choose a surgeon you trust. I would also like to take a second to give a shout out to my trainer @juliezapf for helping whip me into shape too! I couldn't have made it this far without her! Here's to getting even fitter in 2018!!! πŸ’ͺ #tummytuck #posttummytuck #posttummytuckfitness #fitaftertummytuck #abdominoplasty #noregrets #tummytuckpostop #postop #plasticsurgery #mytummytuckjourney #tummytuckjourney #tummytuckprogress #mytummytuckprogress #tummytuckrecovery #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou

12 weeks post op. Finally through swell hell and my scar is showing signs of lightening πŸ˜ƒ #mytummytuckjourney #mombod

Had my 3 month post op appointment this morning! My PS says everything is looking good and healing up great! I still get a little puffiness, but she assures me that will go away in time. I do have dog ears that she will be removing free of charge. I go back for that in October because I asked if we could do that after summer is over. She also cleared me for ab and core exercises as well as getting back to deadlifts and heavy squats.I'm excited to get back to some core work and my favorite deadlifts and squats!!! πŸ’ͺ πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ #3monthspostoptummytuck #3monthspostop #tummytuck #tummytuckmusclerepair #musclerepair #abdominoplasty #tummytuckpostop #postoptummytuck #tummytuckjourney #tummytuckprogress #tummytuckrecovery #mytummytuckjourney #mytummytuckprogress #mytummytuckrecovery #dogears #absandcore #deadlifts #squats #plasticsurgery #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou

Exactly 3 months post op today! This tummy tuck journey has been crazy to say the least! I still deal with some swelling at the end of the day, but it is minimal at this point. Been back in the gym for a while now and looking forward to even better results with my hard work in the gym! πŸ’ͺ I know I ha e said this a thousand times already, but I am so glad that I did this for myself and I would do it all over again!

12 weeks post op from tummy tuck with muscle repair today! I still have some swelling at the end of the day but it is minimal. I try to watch what I eat as far as sodium and carbs. Trying to keep those 2 things low, which I think is helping with the swelling as well as drinking lots of water. I'm also working out 6 days a week...3 days lifting at the gym and 3 days doing T25 at home. All in all, I can say this has been a pretty good experience for me and I would do it all over again.

Transformation Tuesday!!! Oh what a journey it has been! The first 2 pics in this grid are from January 2017 before I got serious about eating right and got back to the gym. The next 2 pics are from some time in the Fall of 2017. I had dropped 30 pounds at this point and started building muscle and feeling great and getting stronger. Shout out to my trainer @juliezapf for that...she's the best ❀ The last 2 pics were taken last week at the 10 week post op mark from my tummy tuck. It was finally time to say goodbye to that loose skin that I HATED seeing every day. I've been back in the gym for about a month now and while I could tell a big difference in my strength, I'm starting to feel like It's coming back. I can't even explain how happy I am that I did this for myself, and I would do it all over again! This was not the easy way out in any way, shape, or form. It was a very invasive surgery and recovery was no joke. This was simply a tool in my journey. No amount of exercise and eating right was going to get rid of that loose skin. And like I said, I would do it all over again. 😊

10 weeks post op today and loving my results so far! I do still swell a bit by the end of the day, but that is getting better as time goes on. I have been back in the gym for 4 weeks now and I can feel my strength coming back! πŸ’ͺ I am so glad I did this for myself! I can't wait to see my final result at the 6-12 month mark with hitting the gym hard! #tummytuckrecovery #tummytuck #tummytuckpostop #tummytuck10weekspostop #10weekspostop #tummytuckjourney #tummytucksurgery #abdominoplasty #tummytuckprogress #mytummytuck #mytummytuckprogress #mytummytuckrecovery #mytummytuckjourney #tummytuckresults #strengthcomingback #backinthegym #gettingstrengthback #gettingstronger #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou

Tomorrow I am going in for a #minitummytuck I teeter between excitement and terror. #tomorrow starts a new chapter. I want my #fitness back. I want my life back. I want to look in the mirror and be proud of what I see. Time for a new start.
After five babies, a c-section, 3 VBACs, and now Hashimoto's my body has taken a beating. Time to fight back. .

9 weeks post op today! I'm so glad I did this! I do think I'm going to have a dog ear that will need to be removed on my left side. I'll talk to my PS about that at my next appointment. I finally feel like my body is starting to reflect all of the hard work that I have put in with working out and eating right. Before doing this, I still had all of that saggy skin that just didn't allow my hard work to show in my mid section. And now it is starting to and I know it will just get better from here on out! #9weekspostoptummytuck #9weeksweekspostop #postoptummytuck #tummytuckrecovery #tummytuckjourney #tummytuckprogress #mytummytuckjourney #mytummytuckprogress #mytummytuckrecovery #abdominoplasty #postop #tummytuck #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou #byebyeextraskin #tummytuckwithmusclerepair #musclerepair

It's getting closer πŸ˜†πŸ˜† had my second consultation with my surgeon, Mr Ahmed, today. Just a case of him answering some of my additional questions that I had. His explanations and confidence has settled my mind on a few things and now I just cannot wait to get it done. I am going to take lots of before pictures so I have something to compare, post op. I won't post them on here though until I've had it done πŸ‘ .

It’s all from the ab and booty focused program I’ve been doing! πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠNow all that loose skin is gone #mytummytuckjourney I can actually see my hard work pay off!!! #dontwishforitworkforit

Accountability post. My friend @katiel1120 posted hers so I will too. I’m happy with my Crossfit progress for sure. Glad I don’t have skinny ass arms like I use to in high school and college. My abs were super sore this morning from our #loosethemuffintopabchallenge Did a running WOD and didn’t die! It’s like I’m a new women, LOL! What are you working on? Goals? #crossfit #accountability #transformationinprogress #abscomingsoon

Happy Friday!!! This was my first week back to gym and hitting my workouts in full force since my surgery! I love being back in the gym! πŸ’ͺ While I notice that I'm not where I was strength wise before surgery, I know I will get back there and refuse to let that deter me! Today was also the first day that I have weighed myself since surgery day and I am down 5 pounds! Woot! πŸŽ‰ It's amazing how eating right and working out can make you feel so much better! T25 Speed 2.0 was on the agenda today. I'm no longer modifying it and back to doing the full movements! BOOM! πŸ’£ Post workout dinner...Tuna Patty and Steamed Broccoli πŸ˜€ #t25 #t25speed2 #workout #exercise #fitaftertummytuck #posttummytuckeating #posttummytuckfitness #posttummytuckworkout #fitlifestyle #fitlife #fitgirl #fitgirllifestyle #tummytuckprogress #tummytuckjourney #mytummytuckjourney #mytummytuckprogress #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou #igfitness #igfit #igfitfamily #igfitfam

Having a good day today. Feeling much better. Sinus infection just about gone. Just have a little sniffle here and there. Did a little shopping and treated myself to a Frozen Coke😊 Gonna get a workout in here in a bit! πŸ’ͺ#happysaturday #sinusinfectionjustaboutgone #byebyesinusinfection #feelingmuchbetter #frozencoke #tummytuckrecovery #tummytuck #tummyjourney #tummytuckprogress #mytummytuckprogress #mytummytuckjourney #mytummytuck #abdominoplasty #swellingisgettingbetter #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou #defleppard #lovebites #hairnation

5 weeks post op today and woke up flat! Big difference from yesterday evening when I looked 5 months pregnant from the swelling! Ugh! I decided to wear my binder to work today to ease up the swelling. Tomorrow I'll start just wearing it after lunch and start weaning myself off of it slowly. I don't think I can stand another day like yesterday! #wokeupflat #stillinswellhell #swellhell #tummytuckrecovery #tummytuck #tummyprogress #tummytuckjourney #mytummytuckjourney #abdominoplasty #5weekspostoptummytuck #5weekspostop #ididthisforme #ididthisformenotyou

Had some pretty mean swelling today, Ugh! It, when I do some light exercise it seems to ease up a bit. So, I did T25 Speed 2.0 and followed the modifier to make it low impact and wore my sweet sweat waist trimmer while doing it and it did ease up a little. I think I'm going to start wearing my binder during the day again to help control the swelling. I will start to wean myself off of the binder though and not wear the entire day, but for a few hours, maybe after lunch time and at bed time. Per my PS, I get to go back to the gym next week! Woot! πŸ’ͺπŸŽ‰πŸ˜ŠπŸ’ͺπŸŽ‰πŸ˜Š
