It's been a while since I've last posted something, so thought it was time to let y'all know what is going on.
Can't believe it's almost 5 months since having my tummy tuck. It's the second best decision I have made (first being the sleeve). I am ecstatic with the results. It's made such a difference in the way clothes fit and how I look. Of course I still have my issues (don't we all?!) with the way the rest of me looks (bat wing arms, flabby thighs, saggy boobs), which can only be fixed with money unfortunately...which I do not have :`(.
I went and saw my surgeon for a check up mid November and new photos were taken (thank God I "tidied up" this time LOL). He was very pleased with how things have healed and how I was looking. I told him I still have concerns about my little "pot belly" which he said he was happy to fix, so this is booked for March next year, with no charge to me as I'm having what he classified as a scar revision within the 12 months of the original op. It's only a day procedure and only 2 weeks off work/driving. I'm taking 6 weeks all up as I have excessive annual leave, so may as well use it then. Plus I booked March as I want to be well healed just in case I do end up going to Hawaii with my sister in August/September...although it'll all come down to money (doesn't everything these days?!).
Above are the most recent pics I have, so you can see from the side view, my little belly. Yes although it's 100 times better than what I had before, I'm still self conscious about it. It's OK when I wear tightish clothes, as it flattens it, but the times I don't, you can see it.
Or am I just being way too picky and critical of myself, worrying about such a little thing?
I'll see if it gets smaller on it's own in the lead up to the revision and take things from there.
And in other news...I wore a bikini for the first time ever! Felt so good. I was only with family as I don't think I could wear one out in public (where anyone knows me anyway, I'm safe overseas LOL). I bought both tops online. They're Seafolly and I couldn't justify spending $110 each! I got both for $50. Score!
This just past weekend gone, I went to my work Christmas party. I was a bit apprehensive about going as the majority of department was management, but I got roped into going and I must say, I had a great night! The open bar helped. Saturday night was the first night in a long time (I reckon 15 years...that's sad!) that I had so much to drink. I felt fine though as I could still walk and talk (well, apart from the drunken texts to a co-worker LOL). Party wrapped up at 1am and the others went off to a bar, but I was too pooped, so went back to the hotel...then had to put up with the nightclub music downstairs until the early hours. I ended up waking at 6.30am desperate for a good cup of coffee.
It's been a very long time since I've been out somewhere without being the company of my family and my close friends. I'm glad I did go out though and somewhat networked, as I still feel uncomfortable and awkward in social situations.
Basically, it's same shit...different day.
Another year older...still single.
So until next time...whenever that will be.
Au revoir xo
