So I’ve got a little project on the go. I haven’t wanted to write about it in case I jinx it.
I saw a different doctor about my breast reduction. I’ve already had the consult! I’ve been approved and they have sent all my paperwork to the hospital to schedule a date. The MOA assures me it will be sooner then I think.
I think about it all the time. When I put my clothes on each morning I wonder what they will look like when my breasts are a more reasonable size. When I jog with Dexter I wonder what it will be like to not have pain. I can’t wait to lie on my stomach without suffocating.
When I saw the new doctor he suggested that I get some liposuction in the armpit area for a smoother result. This was going to cost me $3600- not really feasible on our budget. So instead I have been making a serious effort to lose weight- in a healthy way! I am pretty proud of the 15lbs I’ve lost so far. My goal is another 30, but if my surgery date is sooner rather then later, I won’t be able to do that. I want to do this in a safe and healthy way. If that means my stable weight is higher then I would like, I just need to accept that.
I’m not following a specific diet, just smaller portions and more veggies (carrot sticks for the win!). I did decide to stop baking unless I had a reason. This is probably the single most important change I made, it’s also the hardest- I LOVE to bake. I also am committed to moving everyday. Walking Dexter, jogging, biking, and weights fill my spare time.
So I’m not sure what weight this will all shake out too, but I do know I’ll lose several pounds of boob in a few months so it will be a success in my books.
