TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Weird Rashes

Here comes a topic that I am sure not many have been comfortable talking about..............

I have a weird rash.

Since I have lost weight my excess belly skin is a little saggy (okay, really really saggy but hey, before you judge I have had 3 C-sections).  I have absolutely no muscle tone in my stomach region.  No sit ups or trainer will be able to fix this. 

It is the direct consequence of giving birth 3 times via C-section.  Yes, I blame the kids.  In fact, one day I plan on lifting my shirt and saying, "See this is what child birth does to your body".

Some may think this is mean but, I plan on using it to scare my 3 girls into celebacy.  Call it birth control if you like.


Under my tummy skin there lurks a pink icky itchy rash.

You better believe I am showing my surgeon on Wednesday when I go for my fill.  In fact, I am going to make him document it.  Which leads me to the question............

Does anyone know if Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee will pay for removal of excess skin (i.e. a tummy tuck) ? :)

Hey, its worth a shot......don't laugh!


  1. Document it, take pictures, and get a scrip for treatment. All of these things will help you get insurance to pay IF it is possible (usually they will if medically necessary, something that is only deemed so if you get rashes).

  2. Oh let me know if this works!! I had 2 c-sections and I know that my tummby will never not have that "fold" plus I am sure I had scar tisuue. I am not looking for a flat belly of a 20 year old, but I would ike a fatter stomach once I reach goal!
