Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

It's true.  I am beautiful.  It's a curse.  But please don't hate me.  Do you promise?  Ok.

I have zero stretch mark on my belly.  I really don't.  I do, however, have them on my thighs and chest.  Nursing causes you have an instant boob job.  I was always amazed at just how ginormous they got.  But the end result is...stretched beyond capacity.

I haven't had any plastic surgery.  I know it is so hard to believe. 

I am six feet tall.  Please don't hate me.  I have to wear a 10W shoe!  Practically impossible to find.

I once weighed 123.  Once.  I was too skinny.  I weigh more than that now.  Much more.  I don't want or need to weigh that again.  Ever.

When I weighed 123, I was a size 5.  I'm not a size 5 anymore.  And I am okay with that.  I am heading into a 14.  Much more realistic.

Thank you for not hating me....you don't hate me right?  Whew!  Have a wonderful weekend!  You are all beautiful!

Well, I do hate you a little bit, but only because you are a size 14. Right now I am hoovering around 16, but 14 is pretty much as skinny as I ever get :) Holy moly-123 and six feet tall? Skinny skinny minny. We should go shoe shopping together-if they don't have what we want, we can intimidate the tiny salesman with our glamazon size until he finds what we need :)

No fair no stretch marks on your tummy! Mine is ruined for life.

123 at 6 foot tall? You were TINY. You needed to be fed. LOL

6 ft - nice! I love height! Everyone in my family is tall except me. I don't hate you but 123was too skinny, like "heroin chic" models, which is really not chic.
The only thing I have is what I don't - stretch marks of any kind. The doc said that's more hereditary - got mom's height and lack of stretch marks. I'll take it!

You are beautiful- inside and out!

Emmy said...

Yeah I am afraid to see what my boobs are like when I am done nursing, they seem to get smaller than they were

Rachel said...

Yay for tall women. :)

And yeah, stretch marks from nursing all the way! I went up 5 cup sizes when nursing. Kinda sad now. haha

Jaymi said...

You are beautiful, and I am so jealous! I wish I felt beautiful about myself! I'm almost 6ft and was a size 5 once, but I wouldn't mind being that size again. But I love food too much! Oh well!

I love your wit & style! Ya simply can't hate a gal who has confidence, good humor, is self-deprecating, and is comfortable in her own skin. It's inspiring and quite beautiful!

I loved you from day one in theater class. :) You were bold, energetic, confident; everything I wanted to be. I'd look up to you even if you were three feet tall.

I would be happy to be a size 14 for the rest of my life. I'm up and down all the time. Right now it's up. *sad face*
