Thank you SO MUCH for your supportive comments on yesterday’s post announcing my decision to move forward with plastic surgery on my abdomen. It was a little terrifying to write, but also oddly freeing to put it all out there. You guys are the best.
Personal accounts of the process were one of the main things that helped me make this decision, and unfortunately it’s a very under discussed topic, so I am happy to be able to contribute another first hand account of it all for people contemplating the procedure. I plan to document much of the process of going through the entire procedure from start to finish. This will include everything from the consultations, to the preparation, to the procedure itself, to the recovery. And really, please feel free to let me know if you have any specific questions. Nothing is off limits.
And in other news – I am really trying hard to get myself back to my goal weight prior to moving forward with surgery for the best results. Because of that (and many requests from you guys!), I’m hosting another DietBet for May which will start Monday, May 6, and will run through June 2!
For a description of how it works, you can read this post, but basically, everyone pays $25 to play and has the same goal of losing 4% of their starting weight during the 4 weeks that the game runs. Everyone who hits that goal splits the total pot, so in theory you will make back your money if you hit the 4% goal, and likely more than $25 because not everyone will hit it (like yours truly in Round 2). For Round 1, everyone who hit 4% got paid $43.25 and results are still being calculated for Round 2 so I don’t have the exact figures yet.
Hope to see you over at Beth’s Journey DietBet: Take 3!
