What will they think

 I have been struggling with what people will think of my getting a tummy tuck. Especially family and my church. The main people I have told are other moms and a few friends and family. I know some of my friends and family don't agree with my getting the surgery. I was told by one family member I should be taking my kids on vacation instead. I have prayed about this surgery and the decision to have it. The timing to have it and the money have all fallen into place. My husband and I are both in college. Just so happens that now i have the perfect amount of time to take off to have it.  Once I graduate and start working what job will give me 4 weeks off. not many. Yes I could use the money for other things. Do I feel guilty for spending $8000 on myself. BIG YES!!!! I am a mom I feel guilty when I have to buy new jeans or new shoes. This will help me feel better about me which will help me be the best mom I can be.. I know it is silly to care what people think but I have for 32 years, can't stop now. I live in a small town  and I know people will notice I look different. I know friends and family will wonder why I am not at work or church for a month. I am not sure yet how to tell people or what even to tell them. I decided to do this blog and a way to help me get over this fear of rejection and judgement.


  1. I think it is a great thing to do for yourself, and it really is for your family as well. A happy mom and wife, equals a happy family. Church and family and friends and even random people you see should be happy for you or at least respect your choices. Congratulations!

  2. What people will think is one of the things that scares me when thinking about a tummy tuck.

  3. The way I look at is this, it's not like you spent $150,000 on a 'Pamela Anderson' makeover. You're doing something that that will help you to feel like the best Kati you can be. Sometimes people just need a little help to do so, and if you've been self conscious about your tummy for years, you've already spent enough time worrying about what people think. What's that Dr. Suess saying? "Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter." CONGRATS!
