Want to rejoice, but too disgusted.........

Monday, January 16, 2012

So I go shopping today. I need an outfit, dress something for a dinner/dance this weekend. My father-in-law is stepping up as the president of a professional association. I HATE clothes shopping! I maybe losing weight, the sizes maybe smaller BUT I still see how much I have to lose, not how far I have came.
It has become evident that I may have to have skin removed as a result of losing weight. The more I lose the looser the skin under my belly button gets and the further it "hangs". It is gross. I am disgusted by this and more embarrassed than anyone will every know or understand.
I have dresses on my body today, zipped and all that were a size 12. If it were not for this "hanging" I would have love 2 of the dresses. But alas, I have this horrible sagging bunch of skin......I never considered for once that losing weight would not be the only thing I would have to do to fix my problem areas. NEVER did I think I would have to have a surgery to fix what I have done to myself.
I wanted to celebrate the size 12, but I just cannot.......

    Listen to the 2 wise women that have already commented. We all have something that we don't like about our bodies, whether we are a size 2 or a size 20! You have done an AWESOME job losing what you have and that is definitely needing a celebration. You will continue to lose too, but for now, find that easy and quick fix. You will be amazed at how your clothes fit and will be able to enjoy that time in Vegas, like you deserve!

Hang in there, girlfriend. You've come a long way!!! emoticon Happy, happy weekend to you!!

    I agree with JLDACQ, Spanx! It's a wonderful thing.
I know and can fully understand how you feel, but you need to celebrate your success and be proud! You have done an amazingly hard thing. If losing was easy, the world would all be tiny sizes!

    Wait! Don't panic! Surgery can come a lot later!!

Just do what millions of women have done before us -- buy a girdle, or better yet, a Spanx foundation garment. Really. Yes, REALLY! It's the quickest fix I can offer, and if you can find one for less than $50, be sure to let me know the name of the store!
