Totally random I know, but for me this may be my only option. Let me give you a background story on this. I had two children via c-section within two years!! EEK! I gained massive amount of weight both times. I am pretty small framed and I went from a size 2/3..to a 9 in 9 months with a weight from 113 to 176 lbs. The second time wasn't so bad but I was still pretty heavy. I am not saying cosmetic surgery is my only option but if I have been working on my body consistently for about a year now with minimal results...I need to turn to other options. My ab muscles are so weak that I can't hold my stomach in and I don't even want to mention the extra skin. Ok so you all may have noticed I have been doing Zumba and other workouts but lately I have been so unmotivated because I see my stomach area everyday and it makes me want to quit. This has affected me greatly that I find myself hiding from people and the outside world. I know I am not the only one with insecurities in this world but IT is really bugging me. I did a little research and it could be that my tummy will never return to its original shape. I know, two kids can do that but I feel my case is drastic, I would show pics but it would be out of a horror film. I am down to 116 lbs, a consistent weight for two months now but I want more..I want my abs back!! So my plan right now is to get on a even healthier diet, strict one, and do more ab work!! I don't want the cosmetic surgery right now, but it still lingers in the back of my mind. Has anyone out there had the surgery before? I need advice!! If I am going under the knife I am asking for boobs too!! Why not!? lol. You know I never thought that I would be thinking of cosmetic surgery, where has my self confidence gone too??
