Are you ready? Of course you are ~ its Part 3!
Thank you to those who have read 1 & 2 and for your honesty and sense of humour.
Again I lay myself bare, or possibly not as I would all like you to get through your day without feeling queezy.
So as you may recall boys and girls we are talking bums and tums.
I did have for many years a tummy bulge, but not where one would think. My bulge was more on the top part of my tummy, around my ribs. I remember as a self conscious teenager always folding my arms in front of me. Around 20 years ago I decided I wanted a flat tummy, by hook or by crook and as I have written previously (In a really early post) I had a tummy tuck. I can go into all the details of how it went, if anyone is REALLY interested, but it may make you 😴😴 let’s just say it worked for many years, I wore tighter skirts and pants, without having to wear looser tops to cover and my skin didn’t squeeze up and over like a tube of toothpaste.
Sadly over the last few years, even though I was a gym junkie for 3 of those years going 6 times per week, I’ve been slack. We all get slack and as a result my tummy now is.
As with the legs, the skin is losing its tone, firmness and looking decidedly more floppy. 😩
Now as far as the bum is concerned, the dint that I had on my right cheek (that I mentioned in # 2) was ‘fixed’ during the tummy tuck, by flipping me over (sooo happy I wasn’t awake for this process) and filling it, again I could go into details of how but again😴😴 and because I still walk, I guess my derrière is reasonable for my age, in fact many say I don’t have one, but jeans cover a multitude of sins.
Speaking of jeans, half the battle to disguise your battle of the bulge is in the fit. Too low the toothpaste sits on the top, mid waist, you’re squashing the toothpaste in half, high rise well the toothpaste is now under your boobs. 😟
So thanks for reading and your next instalment will be hands and arms, leaving of course the best till last the neck and face!
