I’m sorry I haven’t updated pictures in a while. Not a whole lot has changed other than the fact that I started working out again and went from 165lbs at the time of the procedure to 180lbs today. I’m still in my size 8 pants but I can feel the difference. My stomach feels swollen all the time for the extra weight. No one else can tell because I still wear the body garment but I have got to do something to lose at least 10 lbs. I’m extremely stressed out right now in my home life which I think is a driving factor, but come the 1st I’m moving so fingers crossed, life will improve tremendously.
Now this picture below, is with the flash on so it looks different than the one directly beneath it even though they were taken seconds apart.
This is what I mean when I talk about dimples on my stomach or bumpy looking. It’s not flat and smooth. Unfortunately, you never know how the skin is going to reattach itself to the muscle.
You can see that I still have some skin elasticity issues the way the skin hangs over the bikini bottom in this picture. You can’t really grab anything on my stomach, even when I bend over, but the skin just refuses to be taunt. Remember, I have been bigger than most kids my whole life, and got up to 243lbs at age 26. Genetics is also a factor. If I had Italian in me I’ve been told my skin would have more elasticity from all the oil in my skin. Who knows!
Now every woman knows everything looks better tan! I’ll see how I feel after I go tanning a few times. My friends want to go on a cruise and everyone thinks I’m retarded because I still wear a one piece bathingsuit. Maybe this time I’ll be brave but I can’t be this white! LOL
