I think it's great that you shared your story. I was 80lbs over weight and I'm still losing weight. I'm at 140 now and I feel like I still need a lot of work done. I know in order to get where I want to be I need to go under the knife. Being overweight did a lot of damage to my body and I'd like to repair it. I can't tell you the last time I've been in a pool just because I'm too self conscience. I lie and tell people I hate the water but I'm too ashamed to show my body due to the excess skin. It's fustrating because I worked so hard to lose the weight but I can't be happy about it. I recently started talking to family and friends about getting a tummy tuck and the subject is always taboo. I'm trying to feel comfortable about it and talk about so i feel like its NFBD, but the feedback is always negative. When I heard you talk about it and your other precedures...I understood where you coming from. I need more friends like you because I guess what I'm looking for is for someone to tell me it's okay. Now I just need to come with up with the money. Thank you for sharing!
