    Alright so for those who don't know, I underwent a tummy tuck this past August and had to get a second 'mini-tuck' this past January because of the way I healed. Honestly, I am really happy with the results thus far despite it only being a month and change since the second surgery. With the workouts I am doing, I am slowly getting muscle, my abs are finally beginning to show, and I can say now that I am really happy I got the surgery.

    I mean the scar sucks but my surgeon is going to include a scar revision treatment (my surgeon is freaking awesome). Am i comfortable being shirtless in public yet? No but it is a comforting feeling that all the work I have done to get the surgery and all the work I've been doing for my body is finally paying off. I hope that within a year I will hit my goals.

    I would like to thank you RealJock for being really supportive of me. You guys (well most) are just awesome. Thank you guys for helping me with this journey. I realize I am no longer the 205 pound, antisocial, introverted, angry kid anymore. I have come a long way physically, emotionally, and mentally and still continue to improve myself.

    Thanks again,

    -Alex

    Wow, never thought you needed, but congratulations on doing what you felt was right for your body, and having balls to post it up on RJ for all to see. Can't wait to see pics of the results ; )

    I'm not sure I'll be there this summer...depends on the continuation of the contract I'm currently on in AZ. It officially ends in mid-May, but could be extended to Sept.

    If it doesn't get extended, I'll still probably be sent to some other city for the summer. That seems to be the unfortunate norm for the past few years. I'm starting to wonder if I really live in SoFla, or if I'm just a nomadic snowbird. icon_lol.gif
