I’m So Soft (Anonymous)

October 21, 2008

I have always been thin, and I still am. Everywhere except my belly. I can dress in such a way that my proof of parenthood is quite well disguised, but I’m still chubby enough that every once in a while I get asked if I’m pregnant. I’m okay with that.

I’m also surprised at how true love can make a man blind. I am dating a 26 year old man with no kids who thinks I am perfect. Not flawless, but perfect.

Sometimes the stretch marks bother me (enough that once I bought some cream that was supposed to help and it did a little) and the flabby overhang is annoying, but then there are the times when my daughter lays on my stomach with her hand on my breast and tells me how soft I am and all is well.

    One thing you have that many do not, is one; great breasts, and they will always bring the eye to them! And if you look at your first picture there, the other thing you have is definition. Not abs ofcourse, I mean how many of us really have abs, lol.
    But you got the lines on each side of your tummy which is very sexy. So please embrace the good, because thats what we see, not flaby saggy skin covered in stretchmarks like you may think!

    Thank you all so much. After reading so many stories here and being inspired by them, I was surprised to come across my own. I *am* happy with myself (as I should be!) almost all of the time. It is really nice to come here and see other women appreciate my body as it really is.

    I guess I should have mentioned in the original post that I am almost 34 with a 12 and 7 year old, thus making the new boyfriend even more unusual. :-)
