Big Booty's Back in the Saddle

Monday, May 04, 2009

I had a nice booty! Nice long legs... never had boobs but the bod made it work. Somewhere in my mind I thought if I could get my rockin bod I would buy myself the boobs. 'A' cups don't really work with a 38 bustline... and that is when I'm in shape! Parents give you the suckiest things sometimes. My dad gave me his ribs and shoulders... I NEVER left shoulder pads in my shirts back in the 80s and 90s. I had my own... but I digress.

I HAD.... Now I'm 40 and I have more than I ever could have imagined. What is it about a good life that sometimes causes us to make ourselves miserable? We're not rich, we are paying on a mortgage, we can barely afford to have my kids in Catholic school, my truck is getting old, but we both have good jobs and 2 AMAZING kids that do well at just about everything they try and if they don't... they have fun trying! They have great spirit. DH and I have each other, he's an amazing husband who just recently told me he loves being married to me (ooooooohhhh and yes, it brought tears to my eyes). You start yourself down a spiral of what you DON'T have and every once in a while, someone comes along and reminds you of what you DO have. I still have that great bod.... it's under there somewhere. And I have a great support group who will help me find it again... even if it means I have to put my big booty back in that saddle 100 times. They will be there for all of them. Thanks for being there SP because I have this and all of you too. It's kinda cool.

It's a new day, new attitude, new me.

    Hi There!
    Just wanted to let you know I can relate to the big booty thing! I inherited my dad's bubble butt and legs - they look fine when I'm at a good weight - not so fine when I'm over! emoticon
    I'm like you - great husband and two great teenage sons, good jobs, etc. - just need to not let myself go any longer. I had to take my "before" photos this weekend because I started the Tony Horton 10 Minute Trainer DVDs. Oh wow! What a wakeup call. I haven't really looked in a full length mirror lately, I guess!
    Thanks for a blog I can relate to - good luck on your journey!!
