Happy New Year Beautiful People!! I am wishing and hoping for health, happiness and prosperity for us all!!
So, this New Year has me thinking about beginnings. I have seen lots of beginnings this year. Not the least of which has been the change in my body, in image and in the physical reconstruction of my actual body. I was thinking about the sacrifices we make to change ourselves. After losing so much weight, I was obviously left with lots of loose skin and also perhaps lost a bit of the youthful plump that all of the extra adipose tissue gave me. In other words I once was like a balloon blown up and deflated basically.
Do I regret the loss of this bit of youth fat had afforded me? Well, no, not even a little bit. Because what I gained in self-esteem and health far outweigh all of this. The new me can run! The new me will live longer and the new me can do anything! I have been extremely lucky that with the intervention of an amazing surgeon in Paul Baguley, I could be brand new. Through plastic surgery I could have the body I worked so hard to get. I have been looking through the pictures I sent into the television company prior to the surgery. I remember being so humiliated sending them, that I actually cleared my browser and email account of any trace of those messages with pictures attached. I looked at them and thought; there could not be any possible way to come back to anything remotely normal looking.
Now in retrospect looking at my after pictures, particularly my thighs and stomach, the results are unbelievable. I am not ashamed of those pictures anymore. It is a bit like looking at a discarded cocoon now. Although not perfect, I am very happy with the butterfly I have become no matter how oddly I fly now and then.
