I am going to show you what my tummy looks like bare for two reasons:
1) I want to help anyone going through this to know they are not alone and I know the pain. I blamed myself. It was not my fault. My body never came back. There was nothing I could do. Hang in there, get it fixed.
2) When I tell people I am having this, my skinny sweet Mom friends say they need it too! Hello? No you don't! If I could wedge this thing in a spanx and get a flat tummy I wouldn't care! This is beyond abnormal and I look crazy freaky. I know my Mom did not want me to show bare belly but I am not ashamed. I am being real.
Taking these pics I cannot believe I even considered not doing this!!! Monday can't come soon enough. I am ready to move on with my life and embrace the freedom of not having to wear black all the time. Of not wearing a yummie tummie tank top every day. Of putting on clothes because I like them, not because they are helping me hide my stomach. I will chronicle the journey and take you with me if you're brave enough to come.
