So, I’ve been thinking about posting a before and after pic, for days! But sadly I was very ashamed of my before picture, even tough at the time I was very confident about my looks and the way that bikini fitted me, I just couldn’t help to see how big I was, compared to my new self, but after thinking about it, if then I was proud and fierce about myself, I shouldn’t feel ashamed about it now! I shouldn’t judge that person who I used to be because she was amazing, loving and cute.
So here it is, 6 months post surgery progress. It wasn’t easy, I’ve struggled trough the liquids only month, dealing with the pain and uncomfortableness (this word exists?!) of eating something I shouldn’t because my stomach couldn’t take it, sacrificing my amazing drinking Friday nights with my best friend, and the big ass lump I got during Christmas week because I rejected the stitches. All of that plus many other things I can’t think of RN, but stuff that doesn’t matter anymore, cause I like where I’m getting.
I’m not gonna lie, only in pics and when I try on clothes I feel the difference, I still struggle with my mind and when I look closely at my kinda loose thighs, my not so firm stomach and boobs, and my butt, I feel like I’m not even close to where I want to be, I’m not as perfect as people that are nice enough to make good comments about my changes, say I am, so if you think this surgery it’s going to suddenly erase all your insecurities and problems with self stem, it won’t, but I will be a great tool for you to start appreciating how strong and amazing you are, and that’s a good start.
I’m uploading this because when I was researching to see if I should get the surgery I loved looking at this kind of pictures, so if you’re thinking about getting it done and you have questions, I would be happy to answer them, from the patient point of view, nothing medical!
Btw that’s the same bikini, I wish the rest of my clothes where like him and still fitted me so I didn’t need to buy a whole new closet, basically because I’m not fucking rich!
Also it looks like I’m sucking in my stomach, I’m not I just pushed back my shoulders to get a better posture, selfie tips 😜
