I had my breast reduction on June 26th, and had my one week post-op appointment this afternoon. I am very pleased with my new "girls", but frustrated by the new shape of my body. Because I've always had both hips and breasts, Ive considered myself to be a 'big hourglass', but an hourglass nonetheless. My 42H bustline is now a 42D, and my "big hourglass" figure looks more like a big BLOB. My stomach looks so loose and, well, just NOT attractive.
The harsh reality is that this was already how my gut looked, but because it was hidden underneath my massive breasts, it was easy to ignore.
The most frustrating part of this is that I wont be cleared to return to exercising for an entire month! I am going to follow Dr's orders, and not overdue, because I don't want to have healing issues, BUT aAAAARGH!! And when I'm not exercising (other than walking around my neighborhood to get my blood circulating a bit) I find it really hard NOT to eat poorly. I have been restricted from driving until Im off the pain meds, and sitting here trying not to go stir crazy is challenging as well. So I figured at the very least I needed to re-connect with Spark, and start tracking my eating again. I have to do SOMETHING. Pray for me, fellow Sparkers. Im going to need it!
