The body thing is a tough cookie, I agree that everyone is obsessed with how they look and their perceived defects, even slim folks.

In some ways, I feel parts of me are worse now than when I was fat. The skin on my belly, thighs and upper arms actually hangs off me and as for my boobs, very grim. However I’d rather be healthy with loose skin than obese like I was. There is no chance of me getting surgery for it as I spent all my savings on wls. So I see these issues as battle scars. I don’t like it but I have to put up with it.

That is such an important point, Chris. Better to be healthy and have loose skin. I paid for my own tummy tuck as the apron kept getting infected. It was the best money I have ever spent. I am very. very self-conscious about my bingo wings. the loose skin is twice the size of my actual arm! But the rest of my sagging body doesn’t bother me a bit. I pushed my body to breaking point so it is to be expected really.

Good control underwear works very well. If I didn’t wear spanx, some days my arse would drag along the carpet! But how often do we go about stark naked (unless I’m missing something here!!?) I am so grateful to have been given the chance of a longer life that sagging skin doesn’t register anymore.

Don’t forget that almost every image we see (of the beautiful people we are supposed to aspire to look like) is photoshopped to within an inch of it’s life. Even we mere mortals can now photoshop our snapshots with an app!

Be proud of your body – it didn’t let you down.
