WLS Plastics from the Patient Perspective

By |2013-02-28T14:21:38+00:00February 28th, 2013|My Story|21 Comments

This is likely one of the hardest blogs I will ever write for you, even as I do it, I am nervous, I am scared and I am self-conscious, but I feel that there is something we’re not talking about out loud in the WLS community and that is, the realism of results and success of body contouring and reconstructive plastic surgery to address the sagging skin that so often occurs after we have successfully [...]

Its not Masturbation its exploratory

Yes, yes, I am touching myself. Seriously, it sounds horrible, it really does, of course I worded it that way intentionally to get a laugh out of you, but the truth is, it is NOT that far off. If you are the type of person that is going to have an issue with the fact that I am opening discussing my private parts, masturbation and body image I highly suggest you stop reading this particular [...]

One of the Darkest Days of my Weight Loss Journey

By |2013-01-28T16:29:34+00:00January 28th, 2013|My Story|0 Comments

I'm pretty sure I'm having a semi nervous break down or something equivalent to it in my weight loss journey. I'm sitting here trying to re-gather myself, panting for breath and sniffling uncontrollably with the hiccups after throwing myself on the bed and crying and sobbing in a way I can only recall doing the morning my father died and the first time a boy broke my heart. Let me rewind for you a second [...]

My Third Christmas Post Weight Loss Surgery

By |2012-12-27T03:30:39+00:00December 27th, 2012|My Story, Product Reviews|0 Comments

I feel like I have so many things to do and catch up on, especially in the online world, that I am starting to panic that I'm "playing" too much. It's nearly 10pm on December 26th, the day after Christmas when life begins to return to "normal" and the end of the Holiday season approaches. I had a couple really rough days leading up to Christmas. Murphy's Law got me again and I was lucky [...]

I don't normally do this sort of thing, but I saw a link on Twitter today that came from SparkPeople.com that asked "How Healthy is your body Image?" I decided to take the quick quiz and see what my results were. This is what I came out with.   How Positive is Your Body Image? Body image affects how you feel about yourself, how you project yourself, and how you care for your own health. Answer the following questions [...]

Insurance Covered my Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

By |2012-12-07T07:44:23+00:00December 7th, 2012|My Story|3 Comments

Alright, I know this is the topic that everyone has been waiting for me to discuss. How I got my insurance to cover my plastic surgeries. Let me first say that I have largely waited to talk about this very publicly until after the surgeries were done and after the bills were all paid. But I'm pretty comfortable at this point so I'm willing to discuss it a bit more. Let me say as an [...]

Okay folks, I'm doped up on Oxycodone as I sit here with my legs strategically positioned to cause me the least amount of pain possible trying to recover from yesterday's Thigh Lift. Okay so I've always said that when I got to the end of these plastic surgeries that I would discuss it all honestly and bluntly, so that's what I'm going to do… So first let's talk about pain. But to do that we [...]
