The belly

Well folks, here it is.  My belly.  It looks pretty normal under clothes, tucked and stuffed into jeans.  But, this is why I bitch about it daily and want a tummy tuck soooo bad. 
 I like the high waisted jeans I can pull over my belly button then tuck the top.
I call this picture "Freddy Krueger attacked an old lady".  See the vertical butt crack looking thing above my belly button?  That is my appendix scar from 3 years ago.  The other cuts are from my gall bladder and VSG surgery.  The stretch marks were graciously provided by my two kids, gaining weight, and losing.  Above the belly button is all wrinkly loose skin.  Below is still fat.

I go for a local plastic surgery consultation  for $50 in 2 1/2 weeks though my mind is basically made up to get the works done in Mexico early next year.  It's just more cost effective to have it done there.  I'm weighing all my pros and cons.  Anyways, this is the body of a 185 pounder who has lost 125 lbs.

Happy New Year!

As of this morning I was 188.6 lbs, which is 121.4 down from beginning of May and 96.4 lbs down from surgery.  I've changed my final goal to 155 lbs which would be losing half of my body weight.  I have 33.6 lbs to this goal.  Crossing my fingers for meeting goal by spring time.
