Just a nip and a tuck...

As you all know I had Gastric Bypass surgery a little more than two years ago. I am currently down by about 135 lbs (on a good weigh in morning). The bad does come with the good though. With all that rapid weight loss (not to mention twins) excess skin is the downside. Yale has AMAZING health coverage, not only was the bypass covered but my abdoninoplasty is as well. So in a few short weeks I go under the knife to have my tummy tucked. I am excited but more than anything I am nervous. It's going to be a lot of pain and I have three kids to care for. My mom, sister in law and hubby will be around to help take care of everything so that take a little pressure off, but I worry about what state I will be in. I hope to eventually get a few other body parts covered but those will have to wait until I am no longer nursing.

Fingers crossed everything goes well.


  1. Good for you my friend. You are an inspiration to us all. Best of luck through the rest of your weight loss journey. My prayers will be with you and your family.

    1. Your kids don't cry when I touch them, so I feel that speaks volumes about my babysitting adequacy - not to mention I cook and clean and live nearby. Don't hesitate to call, although I'll be seething with jealousy that you get excruciatingly painful free plastic surgery :)
