Tummy Tuck or not to Tummy Tuck?

A girl can dream....
p.s. In NO WAY am I implying that Gwen had work done. I just want abs like dat!
I may or may not delete this post before you get to read it. It's about to get real over here...

I have been obsessing lately over before/after pictures of tummy tucks on various plastic surgery websites. While I'm not a high maintenance kind of chick, I definitely have my own girly insecurities about my body.

I've been working out. A lot. In fact, I've been working my ass off at the gym and definitely seeing results. But the bummer is, I'm kind of coming to the realization that no matter how hard I work out and no matter how much I tweak my diet, I won't be 100% happy with my belly 'fluff'. After 3 pregnancies with 3 full term healthy weighted children (ranging from 7 lb 9 oz to 8 lb 9 oz), I have extra skin and 'thunder' (thunder is what Roxy lovingly has named my stretch marks).

I look at my post pregnancy body and I think I look older. Of course, I'm a little older. But I don't FEEL older. I feel young, and I really am young. Middle age isn't low 30's. I want to wear cute, non pregnancy looking shirts. I want to have a waist. Before I get to my middle age, I want to be able to wear a bikini at the pool or on a sandy beach and not want to hide my fluffy belly from the public.

When Christopher had his family jewels snipped last summer, it kind of sealed the deal that my body won't be going through another pregnancy.

So now I want a tummy tuck.

The devil on my left shoulder is telling me that I need this. If I can figure out a way to raise enough funds to get a tummy tuck, then I would be well on my way to an entrepreneurship. I would have a boost in confidence. I would look sexy and feel sexy.

The angel on my right shoulder is telling me I'm just being vain. My body is over being 'sexy' and I should just move on. I don't need my body to be attractive, my hubs will love me just the same.

That devil sure is sounding better and better these days.

Maybe I can convince the angel that me coming up with the money for a tummy tuck will ultimately help my family.

But... how??? I need a plan. I have set the bar pretty high this time and I need a foolproof plan before burying this idea and filing it under 'just another crazy Tabi dream'.

  1. Getting the body that you want is not vanity -- it is about taking charge of how you look, and making use of all available technology to help you achieve that goal. Whatever it is that makes you happy -- go for it. Stay happy!

    1. Thanks so much, Terry. I love words of encouragement.


I love feedback, thanks so much for sharing.

Have an awesome day.

xo, Tabi :D
