Hello all, it's 1 month anniversary today! haha
Have been wearing my compression tight almost 24/7 unless I'm bathing or running.
I can run now, and surprisingly, I can run faster! I don't know if it's my legs or just my stamina getting better. 2.4km in 12 mins, isn't that amazing for a girl with post liposuction pain still tingling around?
Yes they are still considerably big now! I know!
But if you have seen the before photo, you will be amazed by the reduction in size!
So what am I doing now? How do I feel?
I'm trying to eat healthy, and have been doing a good job by cutting down on carbs and empty calories food. I read online that if we don't exercise after liposuction, we will gain weight (duh), and the fats will be redistributed to areas whereby we don't have lipo. For me, I hope it goes to my breasts, but that isn't the case unless I'm really lucky. Probably go to my tummy or arms, etc. I used to snack alot and have late dinner due to my work. I still have late dinner now but it's just tuna fish in water or salad.
I feel so much better as per compared to weeks ago. I can walk, I can run. I still feel pain if I press on my legs. My left knee cap is still numb, but I guess it will take a while for the sensation to come back. As long as it doesn't affect my daily activities, I am fine with it.
My incisions are still obvious, 12 in total. Some of them fade and some stays there stubbornly. I haven't been a good girl because I seldom apply the breaching cream, I just don't have the habit! But I have been massaging myself every night without fail, and going for lymphatic massage occasionally.
One big fat YES!
Though it's not model-like legs, but well, it looks so much smaller than before in my opinion. There's only one thing I dislike, the loose skin! :( I guess it will take months for the skin to gain elasticity and firm up again.
My tights are getting lose and I used to wear XL Nike tights, but now I can fit in M nike pro tights! And it doesn't feel too tight!
The good news for me is that, it's only 1 month, and apparently, that's about 60-70% of the result? The optimal result will kick in on the 3rd month with about 90% of the swelling gone, I still have 2 months to slowly see the change. And final permanent result is on the 6th month.
I'm looking forward for better results, but of coz, with proper diet and exercise.
I have also booked my next appointment with Dr Arthur in Jan 04 to suck out my tummy liposuction, and especially my love handles! I have them when I was slim last time :( I think they just love me, but I don't really like them. Time to kill them.
Big burn in my pocket, pain in my body, but it is all worth it.
