Mickey's Before and Afters

Postby MickeyB » Mon May 21, 2007 3:10 pm

Well I'm not exactly at the 'after' point anymore, but I'm back on track and will get back there soon!

This picture was at about 111kg, so roughly 6kg less than my start weight, but you can get the idea.

Image

This picture was after all my weight loss and my first outing after my tummy tuck at about 76kg, my lowest was 71kg-73kg, but the only pics I have of that stage are post-op ones in my undies which aren't really suitable LMAO. This is pretty close to where I want to get back to.

Image

At the moment I'm hovering around thr 86kg mark, very embarrassed to have let it get this far, but I'll soon be back in those size 11 jeans and feeling a hell of a lot better about where my health is headed.

Thanks for letting me share.

Thanks for all the compliments :oops: I've always had long hair and when I reached the 80's I took the plunge and went and chopped it all off to an even shorter spiky length, I've been growing it out since, but it was a great release at the time and really felt like I was pulling the curtains off of the new me. :D

Chelle I have 3 tatts, the one on my arm that you can see the picture, a little dragon that's just visible at the top of my shirt on the 2nd pic and another one on my back in between my shoulder blades. At the moment I'm designing a full back job and it's going to be my big reward for reaching my goal weight and actually staying there. Do you have any tatts?

Thanks for sharing your pics, Mic. I have to agree with the girls - that hair cut is hot hot hot :) I bet it felt great to chop it off. I recently cut off my long hair and have a cute little bob that's up to my chin and it's so low maintenance and saves heaps of time in the shower and drying/styling. yay for short hair :P

I have one tatt on my butt (left hip area) and oh boy, did it hurt! I don't think I'll be going back for seconds :lol: so you must be pretty corageous!

ive thought about getting a tattoo but would have to think about what i want. it would have to mean something to me. needles dont bother me and ive had an epidural and they always say beauty is pain! id have to hide the tatt from my mother though- she would flip!

The good thing about the pain is that it stops as soon as they stop doing the tatt :P but it's pretty intense. My tatt is quite small, so it only took about 15 mins. I really didn't expect it to hurt as much as it did. I was a bit shocked. But I guess it was short and sharp. Come to think of it, dropping that plate on my toe a few weeks ago was much more painful! I actually cried then :lol:

But if you are thinking about it, make sure it's something you'll want forever, and not 'trendy' for now. I waited over about 3 years to get mine because I didn't know what I wanted and then something happened (very long story) and my tatt came out of that experience and it's basically my daily reminder of mortality :)

Sorry to hijack your thread Mic on tatt discussions :oops:

WOW MickeyB what a difference! Thanks for posting up the pics. I wouldn't have believed it was you in both pics if it wasn't for the tatts :o I agree with everyone, your new hair cut looks great. Good luck!

The tummy tuck was great, if you want a link to my before after pics of that, I'd be happy to share, just PM me.

I had a pretty extensive surgery, they removed 2.2kg of skin, and re-stitched my tummy muscles back together by about 1.5inches. I also had an exisitng scar frmo a open gallbladder surgery and lap surgeries which were a high risk complication, but they came out fine and I had a very good doctor.

It took me about 2 weeks to be able to do anything, I couldn't lift a full kettle of water for about a month LOL so any kid lifting/heavy lifting over 5kg in your day to day life I would take into consideration. It took me about 8 weeks to stand up straight, but even now coming up to 12months it is still tight if I stretch right out flat on the floor. I was allowed back into gentle exercising at the 8 weeks mark, but I could only do about 20min at a time before it started aching. (I had been walking for an hour, and 40min of bike everyday beforehand). Biggest thing is swelling, I still get swelling now if I do exercise, especially ab exercises. Swelling is a major thing that people don't consider, and it can get very depressing when you want to see results, so be prepared for that if you decide to go ahead, and know that the swelling doesn't start to go down for about 4 months and it will flare up from time to time.

The best piece of advice I can give is to research, look at a lot of before and afters of 'real' people so you can see what you're getting yourself into. It's the best thing I have ever done for myself and I was veyr happy with the results. My only regret is not keeping it that way, I'll have to go back and have another tuck and fix up after I've had kids again, as long as I can get back to my lowest weight after having them as well.
