Weigh In Wednesday...

Hey, Hey!

It's Wednesday!  You know what that means...we all force ourselves to step on to the dreaded scale and see the damage we've done for the past week.  I used to be like an everyday "weigher" but Molly kept calling me cray for doing that - so now I'm really trying to only weigh once a week on Wednesday!  Haha!  I don't want to be that cray blogger girl!

Today marks the 3 week point in Erin's DietBet!  Eek!  The first DietBet I participated in I missed my goal by 0.4 pounds - Bitch!  So I'm detemined to make it this time and I think I'm totally on track to do just that!  I'm surprised because I haven't been able to work out throughout this entire DietBet due to the New and Improved Boobs!  However, at Monday's post-op with Dr. OB he said that I didn't have to tape anymore and could start low impact cardio, lower body and ab workouts as long as I was comfortable with it and it didn't hurt.  If it hurts I'm not supposed to do it - whatever it may be.  So I'm stoked and I have these two workouts on the menu for this evening...

Weigh In Wednesday Stats...
Week 1 Weigh In: Down 5.6 Pounds! Holla! Only 1.2 Pounds until Goal, Bay-Bay!
Week 2 Weigh In: Down 5.0 Pounds (Gained 0.6 Pounds)! Only 1.8 Pounds until Goal!
Week 3 Weigh In: Down 6.2 Pounds (Lost 1.2 Pounds)! Only 0.6 Pounds until Goal! Boom!

So What & Weigh In Wednesday...

So What Wednesday
Just for documentation purposes here is my Weigh In Wednesday Stats...
Week 1 Weigh In:  Down 5.6 Pounds!  Holla!  Only 1.2 Pounds until Goal, Bay-Bay!
I have no idea why, no rhyme or reason...but I'll take it.  Maybe taking a break from working out jolted my body enough to freak it out?  LOL!  Or maybe...maybe my Big Girl (the old right boob) really was THAT much bigger and weighed exactly 5.6 pounds...

Don't forget, head to my HomeGirl (Instagram) and follow me @darci_spear to learn more about my big GiveAway with the one and only Hazel & Olive Boutique!

PS - I've had a few ladies already contact me and say Instagram is being a B Face and I either don't show up at all or they aren't being allowed to follow me - even though my profile is public.  I can only guess that something wonky happened when I set my profile to private awhile back for a bit.  If this happens to you email me at and leave me your IG screen name and I have been able to go in and find you, then it has been letting the girls add me after that!  Screwed up sitch, for sure!  I apologize if this causes headaches, but I want to make sure everyone gets entered in the giveaway that wants to!  Thanks, Lovelies!

Boobs, Boobs, Boobs, Boobs...

The title in my mind is set to the LMFAO song Shots...
Tuesday was the big day - the Big Boobie Makeover!  I've been posting some quick notes to my Homegirl since, but today I wanted to give you ladies a little bit more of what I was feeling before and after the surgery and then also what I was most surprised by post-surgery.

Monday night I kept it pretty low key and just hung out with my favorites since I knew it would be days before I would be able to have them crawl all over me and sit with me!  This has to be one of the biggest pitfalls to the whole surgery process.  Little Miss doesn't do well when she sees her Momma, but can't be with me.  :-(
Dr. Old Balls has you take 3 doses of an antibiotic the day before surgery in hopes of discouraging any type of infection post-surgery!  Other than that, the only prep is to also wash with Hibiclense - which is a pink antibacterial body wash.  Let me tell you that stuff is nasty!  Dries out your skin instantly and you can't use any lotions or creams afterwards - talk about uncomfortable!  Oh, and no food or water after midnight, duh!  I also did my weigh in for Erin's Diet Bet Monday night and managed to snap some B pics of the boobs.

Tuesday morning we were up bright and early, dropped the kids at daycare and headed over to Joplin.  I was definitely anxious at this point and even a little on edge, I was just ready to get it over with!
After we got to the surgery center first things first, they make you shell out the rest of the money you owe them - go figure.  After that I was taken back and given my lovely gown, a hair net thing, weird paper sock/shoes and had to give a urine sample to make sure I wasn't pregnant.  By the way, I went in to force said urine sample and wouldn't you know I started my freaking period - thanks alot Aunt Flow, your timing is impeccable!  Just one more thing I was going to have to deal with this week. 

Dr. OB finally came in and drew all over me, making his pathway for the surgery.  I really wish I could have had someone snap a picture of his pathway.  Some of you had asked me what they actually do and this diagram gives a pretty easy explanation without getting too technical.  Here is also a link to OB's website and the video for a breast lift procedure (if you anyone is interested) -

Surgery took longer than expected, he had me scheduled for 2 - 2.5 hours, I'm not sure how long it actually took, but I think he had to end up doing more work to "even" them out then he had originally anticipated.  To be honest, even though I haven't unwrapped yet and I'm still really swollen - I still feel like my right boob is bigger, so I'm not sure how I feel about that right now...
We didn't end up making it back to the house until a little after 3pm and I was miserable!  I kept telling the nurses that I felt like something was digging into the incision under my breasts, they kept assuring me there wasn't.  Dr. OB stopped by afterwards briefly and I remember him saying something about deep stitches and that's why it was hurting, but I was pretty out of it so who knows.  I remember crying/whining on the way home (it was about a 45 minute drive), every bump, sudden stop/braking or quick acceleration left me breathless!  I don't know what The Husband didn't understand about the fact that I had just had surgery, but I don't think I ever wanted to stab him in his dick more than I did in those 45 minutes - then he had the nerve to take a conference call while we were in the car!  AssssHhhooooooolllee!
So today is Day 4 post-op and I feel pretty great!  Tuesday was bad, Wednesday was horrible, Thursday was better and today is good!  I can definitely tell an improvement from day to day in the pain and swelling.  Old Balls said I could unwrap for up to 30 minutes/day starting on Wednesday, but I've yet to unwrap at all!  I'm scared to, I don't know why - I just am!  I guess in my mind I think once I unwrap them, they will probably move and that it will hurt?  I don't know!  I have to unwrap today, I just need to woman-up and do it!
I've been trying to decide how to describe the pain or feeling I've had since the surgery.  Here is what I have come up...
  • The first thing you notice is the heavy feeling on your chest - like an elephant is literally sitting directly on your chest.
  • The inability to take a nice, big deep breath - this drove me insane!
  • The worst part of the day is the morning, when you first wake up and have to get out of bed.  I'm assuming its from having been laying down so long, but when you first sit up or stand up - it feels like your boobs are being pulled off, it's a weird and definitely uncomfortable feeling.
  • You can't use your arms and this makes sitting/laying down or sitting/standing up very difficult and awkward.  It also makes it hard to like adjust yourself in a chair or in bed b/c you can't use your arms to push yourself up or back.
  • You have to lay on your back, at an incline - this is just plain uncomfortable.
  • You can't feed yourself for like the first day or two because you can't move your arms up to your mouth! I'm serious.
  • The sore muscle feeling - I don't know why, but I didn't really expect it and it's not even just my's my lower back, my neck - I think this has to do more with the position you lay in though.
  • Now, for the biggest surprise that I never anticipated...You cannot go to the bathroom by yourself for at least the first 2 days.  I would have never thought of this fact before going in!
I felt like this lady, my arms felt so swollen and pushed out that I couldn't put them down straight - let alone reach my "uh-oh" in order to properly cleanse myself after using the restroom (after squatting just to get on the toilet)!  So The Asshole Husband was a necessity at this point, unfortunately!  I really could have used one of these "old people" extended wiper deals - keep that in mind if any of you ladies decide to get your boobs done!

I go back to see Dr. Old Balls Monday morning.  He will remove the dressings and tape and then put new dressings back on.  Like I said, I'm freaking out about that - I do NOT want to pass out!  LOL!
