I've been absent, I know. However, I've been very very busy on my goals. Work is going great! The house is getting decluttered and organized. And yesterday, I had achieved one of my goals I've had for a long time. I always said that when I was finished having children I would get my breasts enhanced. I've never been very gifted in that area. I was an A cup for most of my life, managed to fill out a B in college and then after having the kids, I went back to a 34A. Ugh. I've always loved how full my breasts were when I was pregnant and wished they could stay that way.
So my best friend that lives a few minutes from me is an Operating Room nurse and has worked with most of the plastic surgeons in the area. She highly recommended Dr. Chris Saunders and he was wonderful! We went with increasing me to a 34D, which is very proportionate considering I'm 5'7" with broad shoulders and decent size hips. We also did a mini-tummy tuck since having twins did leave me with extra skin on my abdomen that no amount of working out could make go away. It was just excess skin. Since I was also already going to be in surgery, we decided to do liposuction on my buttocks/outer thigh area. That has always been my problem weight area.
I hope no one thinks I'm being vain or superficial doing this. Please don't leave me those comments or I will delete them. I did this completely for me. As I've gotten older, I have really prioritized working out and I love my body when I feel strong and have energy. Ever since the boys were born, I really prioritized getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight, working out after the kids go to sleep at night. I'm so excited about what I've done and I love my friends and family that have supported my decision to do this.
BTW, the next thing I'm going to do to feel good about myself, is I have the name of a vascular surgeon who can fix the varicose veins on the back of my right knee. It's only on the back of that leg and it makes me so self-conscious when I wear skirts above my knee without stockings.
I'm looking forward to my healing process right now, taking care of myself following my doctor's orders for rest and getting back to exercise when he says I'm ready. Phoebe and I are looking forward to starting to take yoga classes together at a local yoga studio.
