Hello to all my "Sisters in Skinny"!
How are you all doing today? Did you have a good day?? I did. I cant say I did much today other that take my daughter to WW to weigh in, we went to visit my mom & dad for a bit & then came home & made a delish dinner of marinated grilled chicken, Ore Ida oven browned potatoes (which are actually BFC friendly!) corn (for the kids & hubby) & a salad for me that wasn't that great so I only ate a couple of bites of it. Then me & my hubby took the dog for a 2 mile walk. It was a beautiful evening and outside of it being so darned dry, we cant complain about not having a nice hot summer now, can we? I personally, LOVE the warm weather & could live in the sunshine year round. Perhaps I will relocate to Aruba where it is breezy & warm & sunny every day!! ahhh....(with a heavy sigh....) I LOVE Aruba! Anyways, enough about the weather! We have weight loss to discuss! :)
I still need to pack my lunch for work tomorrow. I'm thinkin tuna salad. I'm not especially fond of it but I can choke it down from time to time. It seems when I eat tuna before I weigh in I seem to do well so we shall see. The scale hasn't budged all week...still showing me the same number as last week. Oh well, I did have 2 good weight loss weeks in a row so maybe my body is just catching up, but for heavens sake, hurry up!! I wanna be in the 170s....NOW!! haha!
I made a call to my plastic surgeon to have a few moles removed from my face & I have a couple in my hairline. I had a breast reduction by him about 7 yrs ago & he is just such a sweetheart. I wouldn't want anybody but him slicing moles off of my face. He is a perfectionist & not too hard on the eyes either....BONUS!!! Anyways, I was talking to his office girl today and asked how much it would cost to have a tummy tuck. Looks like about $5,500 which I have to tell you, wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. And that's the whole shabang! His fee, the hospital fee including overnight stay & anesthesia. I have a HORRIFIC scar on my belly from having and emergency appendectomy as a child. I was only 3 yrs old & it was done in 1969 when the technology wasn't like it is today. My scar is something that has been such an embarrassment all my life. I have never been able to wear a bikini & it has disfigured my abdomen so badly that I have to wear undies with a tummy panel in them to smooth it out so my clothes don't look weird on. Its REALLY & truly that bad! Anyways, I have made up my mind that when I reach my goal, hopefully by the end of the year, I plan to have my scar revision & tummy tuck sometime next yr. I am scared to death to have it done but I have lived my whole life wishing that I didn't have this hideous disfigurement on my belly. I want to know what it feels like to have a flat tummy. I am going to get rid of as much belly fat as possible so that my results will be great. He has over 25yrs of experience & he does a fabulous tummy tuck so as embarrassed as I am to even have him look at it, I know that he has seen way worse in his career, I am going to see if it will be possible to have it done. I feel kind of vain in a way for wanting to have it done, but I have decided that this is my year for not making any more excuses. I have almost $4000 saved so I almost there. Was that TMI??? Geez, I sure hope not.
Anyways, I am going to say goodnite & sleep tite to all my online skinny peeps! Have a great day tomorrow!!
