Been thinking about getting a few…for several years–like 10 years, maybe? I don’t know…started thinking about it again today. It’s a couple thousand dollars for a tummy tuck. A couple more for a boob-job. They give you a discount when you get both at the same time…that’s the only way to go, in my opinion! Get it all done at the same time.
I’ve always been cursed with a poochy belly, something that I inherited from both sides of my family, but mainly from my mother’s side. I’ve also been cursed with a small chest, but great legs.
That is one thing I do really like about my body! I love my legs! With just a little exercise, I have toned, shapely legs! Ah, yes that’s also a curse! I wear a 34″ inseam. It’s impossible (well, it’s getting slightly easier now) to get pants that fit. But, I love wearing my 4 and 5 inch heels. My husband is 1/4″ taller than me. Thankfully, he doesn’t mind when I wear shoes that add to my height! I only said I wanted a husband who was taller than me; I was not specific as to how tall he should be! 😉
So, tonight, as I was sitting by the warm fire, watching “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days”, I was thinking about the unnecessary surgeries that I want to get. I am not feeling sorry for myself, so please don’t misread my intentions here.
I feel very good about myself in many ways. I believe that the Good Lord blessed me with many things. A great body was not one of those things that he blessed me with. But, I’m thinking that maybe next year, I’ll sit down with a surgeon and decide if that’s a route that I really want to pursue.
Many of you reading this will probably think that I am selfish or that I have a low self-esteem and that by changing my body, I’ll feel better about myself. This is not the case. I feel very good about who I am as a person. I just want the woman that is inside of me to be on the outside, as well.
Anyway, I just felt like writing that, considering that I don’t have anything else to talk about right at the moment. Rob’s in the field and I’ve been spending most of the day getting stuff done for Christmas. It’sright around the corner…91 days. Which means that I have 60 days to get everything ready! That’s simply not going to be enough time, but somehow I’ll manage. I always do and I ALWAYS work better under pressure. Well, it’s nearly 10 pm and for the first time this week, I think I’ll go to bed at a decent hour and read some Snoopy!
Have a great day and thanks for reading! 🙂

I don’t think you’re selfish at all. I have a pooch and boob problem too, only the latter is that they are bigger than I’d prefer. I’m in my early 30’s and they are saggy…not totally sagging, but I’m sure that’ll come. I asked my doctor a couple years ago about getting a reduction and her response was, “Get pregnant. The kid will suck everything out of you.” I said, “First, I’ve heard it doesn’t work that way for everyone, that some women just get bigger. I fear that would be me. And second, should I get married first or just get knocked up?” She said, “Whatever you want.” Nice… I don’t see her anymore.
I think it is great. If you someone can afford it, they know why they are doing it and it makes them feel better about themselves, go for it.
