    oh dear! thank god for modern medicine! you must think i'm kind of a whiny brat.

    have you ever checked out Shape of a Mother? sometimes i browse when i'm feeling down about myself; it helps to normalize body flaws.

    had to clear my mind of some thing unrelated to this post. time for bed, night cori!

    No... I don't think you are a whiny brat. LOL

    We all have different issues, and come from different backgrounds, and emotional places...
    Just because a person hasn't walked the same road I have doesn't meant that they don't have feelings that are just as intense about the road that they are walking on...
    ... Unless they are involved in reality TV. Then they need to be shot.

    I'd never eve heard of that site. Very cool...
    I had my baby over 19years ago... nothing like that back then!
    It's good that that is out there... with media the way it is and the influence on culture and the demands of 'perfect'... bah!!!
    It's really ridiculous.
    Of course carrying babies is going to change things...
    The media totally screws women on this one!
    You look great. You've had kids, your skin was stretched!
    And you still really do look great.

    Of course... I'm in my current heavy boat because of years of on and off bouts of the disease and drugs to cover the pain... and even with the stim working it doesn't cover 100%... so I have to take it easy or I get flare ups.
    And depression/PTSD and those pills early on...
    And now I have the second disease squishing my brain and the meds for that... Bleh.
    For me... I lose a pound or two a month, and I just have to be OK with that.
    The metabolism is broke! And I can't walk all day, or hike, or sprint, or lift... to fix it.
    I'm not going for hanging out in a bikini being a trophy wife for the husband or whatever...
    I just want to be healthier because my body is getting beat up something fierce health wise. And medication wise... the med for the IH is pretty brutal.
    And because at some point not being basically house bound would be AWESOME!

    Looks like a mummy tummy. And not even a very big one at that. Isn't that more a badge of honour than something to be ashamed of?

    I can relate to the "I know what it SHOULD be, but it's not for me" mentality. Self-esteem issues suck, but you CAN improve on them. Keep writing, pretty lady, we obviously like chatting with you

    Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).

    i like chatting with you guys too. really, i just need to accept what i have. i think being (mostly) okay with posting those pics means that i'm closer than i was.

    Yeah, you're all right, besides your aversion to testicles and tornadoes.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Alla thiss...

    I randomly mentioned a boob job to husband the other day... some how it fit with the conversation, although I have no idea how at this point...
    And he said "why"... I said "why not"... he said "that's a lot of money"
    So I said "yeah, but I want you to love my boobs"
    He raised one eyebrow at me and says "So, I don't love them or YOU don't love them?"
    Point taken... he wins!

    yup, that's mostly the scenario here. i know hubby looks at other pics, and there was the issue with him sending me pics, but in the recent few years the overwhelming majority of comments about my body have been positive. meanwhile, it's me who's putting such a high priority on looking a certain way and basing my self-worth on it. granted, subtle ways that he acted in our early years made a big impression on this process, but in the past few years he has been supportive. he really is just clueless sometimes.
