Tummy Tuck Scars – Yes – But Great Abs

Hey, I know you’re worried about tummy tuck scars, I mean what’s the point of undergoing such a major surgery if you won’t be able to show off your abs because you have some ugly scar, right? Well, relax , the scar is usually big, but there are a few things that you should know.

First things first, make sure that before you have your tummy tuck that you have realistic expectations. It’s always best to invest the time to get in shape before the tummy tuck, don’t think of this surgery as a ‘diet’ plan. It really should only be used as a ‘finishing touch’ to tighten skin and repair torn muscles that no amount of diet and exercise can repair.

It’s also important to realize that a lot of people subconsciously think that once they look good everything will go great for them in life. Not so. Sure, you’ll look great and that will make you feel great, but life can still have it’s ups and downs so be prepared. The weird thing is that many people feel this way but few are aware they feel that way so it can blindside you after the surgery. Just be on the lookout for it.

Now, on to the tummy tuck scars, yes the scar will usually go from hip to hip, but if you have a qualified surgeon the scar will be so low that you can still wear that skimpy two piece you’ve had your eye on. Another thing to remember is that the scar will fade over time.

How long it takes for the scar to fade to the point where you can’t hardly see it will depend on your skin type. There are some people who claim that certain creams can help lessen the redness of the scar more quickly but you should talk to your doctor first to get his opinion.

You will also be bruised and swollen for weeks after the procedure. This is another common misconception. The swelling will go down after several weeks but until it does you’ll probably look bigger than you did before the surgery. Don’t let this bum you out, it’s only temporary. When everything fades and the swelling goes down you’ll love the way you look.

Some people also believe that tummy tucks are temporary. You’ll have to ask your doctor about that, but in my experience (yes, I’ve had one) the only way to go back to the way you were before is if you gain back all the weight you lost. So, don’t!

Do yourself a favor, take time to get in shape by eating right and getting plenty of exercise. Once you’ve done that honestly access the way you look. Once you’ve done all that you can do it might be time to see a plastic surgeon if you’re still not quite ‘there’. Don’t worry about tummy tuck scars they are very low and will fade over time so you’ll be able to show off your hot abs!

The Best Natural Way To Lose Belly Fat

Most people in the world have belly fat, and many try to figure out a way of getting rid of that belly fat. They try fad diets, and some kind of juice that will keep you in the bathroom all day. However, the best natural way to lose belly fat is. Drum Roll Please.

Its EXERCISE !! I can hear most people right now either groaning or let out a sigh, the reason is because most people dont want to put in the work. Hey Im not throwing off on anybody, because I use to be one of those that would rather sit in front of a T.V. then get up and do some type of exercising.

However, there isnt but one way of doing it, and that is getting up and doing it. You have to get your mind right people, you need to get in that state of mind that nobody is going to stand in your way, and you welcome all challenges.

Once you have your mind right and you know you are going to be dedicated, then the next thing you need to do is find a team. What I mean by that is find some people that are willing to go that extra mile or give you a kick start when you just dont feel like going.

No one has ever accomplished their goals by themselves, I dont care what anyone tells you, somebody helped them along the way in some shape or form. Its like that in all walks of life and this is no different than any other situation.

OK, now that you have your team in place, its time to pick out the type of exercise program that is going to work for you. Its very important that you pick the right program for you because you want it to keep you going not burn you out.

Now lets look at a few exercises that could help you lose that belly fat. Swimming, this is often overlooked because most people think of it as just a casual thing to do. You would be surprised at how fast you could get that belly in shape by swimming. You use every muscle in your body which makes you work harder and it burns that fat.

Jogging, start out light, lets say 10-15 minutes a day then just keep moving your time on up. Here is one that everyone knows, and it is the most used way to get rid of belly fat.. Crunches.

Thats right, get you a mat and get started with those crunches. The good thing about crunches is that there are different techniques one could use to work on every angle of your abdominal area.

If you were to implement just two of those exercises into your daily routine then you will shed that belly fat quicker than you can blink.

Proven Truth about Cant Lose Weight Myth

Hey if youre reading this it means you and I both have run up against that “cant lose weight myth”, but we both chose to believe it. It wasn’t our fault though, because our parents, friends, loved ones, co-workers and even people who didn’t like us, were quick to tell us to give it up, you will never lose weight. Chances are if you were like me you started believing them at an early age, perhaps as early as 4 or 5.

On top of that if it was your child hood friends, they taunted you with sayings like “Fatty, Fatty, 2 By 4 you can’t fit through the bathroom door. All of this because you were overweight and it didn’t matter what you did, it seemed you couldn’t get it off.

Stop believing right now that you cant lose weight. I’m here to tell you that its a myth and you can lose weight I did.

A short while ago I weighed well over 220 pounds (I was small boned and only 5’6”, had high blood pressure, borderline diabetic and my personal life was in a total melt down. I couldn’t hold a job because of my health problems and the people I tried to work with were worse than children about me being overweight. I was the joke of the work place, so as soon as I couldn’t take it anymore, I did my best to get laid off so I could collect unemployment or I just quit.

I did that one too many times and my family left me. Obviously I hit rock bottom then. I made up my mind I had to win them back and that’s when I found out “you cant lose weight” was a myth.

Shortly thereafter I was watching the Dr. Phil show and he was talking to people just like you and me. You know the “fat ones”. He told those folks they had to stop believing they couldn’t lose weight. Right then is when I realized that was precisely what was stopping me. I believed I can’t lose weight.

As I continued to listen to Dr Phil what he said made more and more sense. To make a long story short what he said was I had to believe I could lose weight and that I would have to change my lifestyle to accomplish my weight loss goals. The fact is I started that very day.

My first step was to go to my doctor and have him check me out to make sure I could start an exercise program without killing myself. Then I contacted a friend from my church and we became accountable to each other for each reprogramming our mind and reaching our weight loss goals.

Now here’s the fun part, we began to challenge each other in our goals, changing our lifestyle (eating habits) and progressing from a slow walk to a faster walk. Today we are up to 3 miles in just under 36 minutes.

Was this easy? Heck No! But I have lost 53 pounds and my friend has lost 47 pounds. The important thing is we have gotten it off and kept it off for more than a year. I’m now working and my family has allowed me back into their life. Is everything rosy, no but it’s a whole lot better than it was.

I’m living proof you cant lose weight is a myth. You need to search your mind, dig deep into your gut, get a plan together and stick to it.
