Lipoplasty/ liposuction

I’ve thought long and hard about writing this post 
But I’m an open person and so I decided total disclosure 

Here it is. On Wednesday I’m going in to have this procedure done to remove 
My extra spare truck tyre around my middle 

As you know. I’ve been on a weight loss journey for a long time. And for the most part 
I’ve dropped and maintained that weight loss 

Twice I gained 
Each time it was after an analysis episode 
And the weight gain was immediate and huge 
The first tie was six kilos in three days 

Dropped two in six months 

Only to gain eight kilos in three days 
Because of steroids 
The second time I had steroids intravenously as well as in tablets 

Both these times the weight pretty much settled around my stomach and arms and it hasn’t budged 

Now the arm fat is unsightly 
But not dangerous 
But the fat around my middle is bad for my health 

It’s this fat I’m having sucked out 
The size of your waist contributes to your 
Odds of all sorts of health issues 

No amount of dieting, or exercise is moving it 
Before anyone suggests sit up 
Or crunchies
Don’t. I just can’t do them anymore with my health issues 

So with consultation with my GP
A plastic surgeon 
And my husband 
I’m booked in this Wednesday 

Please wish me luck 
I know I’m going to be in some discomfort 
But in the end I’m hoping this will help jump start the weight loss again

In not silly 
I know this is only a way to quickly target a problem area 
And my healthy eating and exercise program will continue 

So there ya go 
Turns out I’m more vain that I thought lol 

Now you know why I’ve been busy getting everything under control 
See yo on the other side of surgery


  1. I have to wonder if your goverment health insurance is picking this up. I am trying to get my private insure to cover a breast reduction. It giving me back trouble.
    Best of luck to you.
    Coffee is on

    1. No. It’s not covered by insurance

      I don’t have any either way. So I’ve saved and we are paying for it ourselves

  2. Good on you!!!
    You'll feel so much better mentally and physically.
    Wishing you a smooth operation and quick recovery.

  3. Good luck Angela, I hope you get the results you are after and are up and ready soon after.

  4. Thanks ladies. Yes I’m pretty excited
    It will be a huge mental boost
