    And I, speaking as the 6 breasted woman, would categorize her results as better than many. Sigh. I think it's good thing for prospective patients to see this. A dose of reality.

    VIBRANT woman. Her body may not meet the unrealistic beauty ideals we tend to set for ourselves, but it's quite lovely in my view.

    Each of us are unique. That is her reality. Mine is different and similar. I wish I had her legs. See, no matter what, there is no perfect. Oooh to be able to have free rein at the plastic surgeon's office would be dangerous!

    I've seen that photo essay before- it was striking, and I think I even shared it on FB.. My body shape is very similar, esp the belly & legs. I also have that same feeling laying in bed and having my husband hold me.. and my extra skin, part of me.. but not a part I love.

    Mine too and now you see ribs right to the side. If we are being honest here and at the risk of offending, if I could whack something off (maybe that wasn't the best choice of words :D )it would be the skin on my damn pubic bone...I can't tell if it is fat or just a bunch of loose skin but I hate it.

    Other than that I am pretty happy

    I think she was extremely brave to share these pictures. More brave than I would be/have been.
    Here's my take on what I've looked like through my journey.
    I didn't like the way I looked when I was SMO, naked or dressed. I didn't like the way I looked naked when I was at goal weight and lower either, but I LOVED the way I looked when I was dressed. Touching my collarbones almost obsessively when I was not MO was a thrill. Walking by a store window and realizing that was MY reflection was really cool, and always made me smile.
    Now that I weigh more and am again MO, I no longer have those particular joys. However, one thing that changed for me in a good way is my body shape. My whole life, even when I was a teenager and thin I had an avocado or pear shape. When I lost all the weight I did (188lbs) my body shape became proportional. Now that my weight is up to 270, happily my body shape is still proportional. I'm no longer a pear! My boobs are like rocks in socks, but oh well!
    I also don't have a FUPA anymore. When I had my revision they took that whole big belly flap hanging down! LOL.
    So while I applaud her for her bravery, I believe it's a trade-off. For me it was worth it.
