After Pictures Update

I am truly sorry that I haven't posted in a while. Not a whole lot has changed in terms of my body as of late. Well, that's not entirely true. I've been working on my tan - and let's be honest, everything looks better tan! I've also put on a few pounds. I'm not sure if it's due to the stress at work or the sheer amounts of alcohol I've consumed as a result of that stress. Either way - I'm up to 187lbs, which is clearly not where I want to be. I've decided it's time to redirect my energy and start using exercise as an outlet instead of alcohol. It's not an excuse, but some days I just want to go out with friends and vent about all the things that are stressing me out - and as a society, what do we do to be social - either go to a bar for drinks or a restaurant for food. I did get my best friend to join the gym but that presented another problem - too much talking and not enough working out. Like with everything in life, it's about finding balance right?

Ok ok, enough rambling ... here's the pics .. these were taken 10 minutes ago :)



As you can see in the image below, there is still obvious areas of opportunity!


People say I have a swimmers build, I see it more as a football player build - but what can you do?



For the purposes of giving viewers the most consistency, I've always posted pictures wearing the same thing.  It's a cheap $10 bathing suit from Walmart.  I don't feel sexy or confident in it.  I think that comes across in the pictures, even when they're staged for the purposes of this site.

I think every woman will agree, it doesn't matter what the scale says .. you could be at your thinnest but still feel gross and bloated.  If you're not confident in what you're wearing, you're not going to feel sexy or attractive... here's a different bathing suit shot that demonstrates how important it is to find something that you feel flatters your body, not just one that fits!


The stretch marks are there to stay, but I'm slowly coming to terms with it.

There are definite times when I feel sexier half naked then I do with clothes on - which for a former fat girl, is pretty impressive lol .. I know in this picture I weighed 185lbs, but no man would ever believe it.


Regardless of what the scale says, you know what effort you're putting in to your health - you just have to own it.  I know that I've been slacking hardcore the last couple months.  If I don't lose any weight on the scale in the next couple months but my diet and exercise is what it should be, I'll be happy with me.  You just have to rock what you got :)

  7. Hello there.
    Why are the stretchmarks there to stay? Can they be removed??

    1. The only way to remove them is to cut them out - basically, getting a tummy tuck. I did the laser resurfacing which definitely helped with the size of them and their overall appearance but they are still there.

Smart Lipo - Inner Thighs - Day 3

Monday, I had my upper stomach and back done.  On Wednesday, I went back to have my inner thighs done.  The pain was minimal in comparison to what I had experienced on Monday.  That could also be due to the fact that my body was still in shock.

The procedure was pretty quick.  The doctor decided to do CO2 Laser Resurfacing on the outside of my thighs where I had the most excess skin.  I was beyond surprised when she brought it up.  I knew what it cost me to have the stretch marks done on my stomach and here she was going to do both of my thighs - for nothing?!?!

The one thing that means the most to me about my experience with Dr. Kaufman, is that she is a perfectionist.  Yes, she has made a good amount of money off of me, but at the same time, she could easily be in it just for the money and suggest such a service and then say, well, that will be an extra $1,000.  They are so incredibly good to me at that office!  I absolutely love them!

In these pictures, you're going to see the …

Before and After Pictures

Here are some from just before the procedure and just after .. it's amazing to me to see how the body changes in just one day .. I'm very hopeful that the outcome will be exactly what I want!



Skin Retraction with Smart Lipo (Laser Lipo)

I cannot tell you how happy I am that I decided not to have a tummy tuck and choose the smart lipo option first.  This picture alone should persuade anyone who has lost weight and is debating on which route to choose that it's not worth the risk with the tummy tuck or having that scar when you can spend less money and less time recovering to have smart lipo done.
