Did I Shave My Legs For This? Letting Myself Be LOVED.

Here is a Little Life Lesson for Living a Happier Bariatric After Life™

I have always hated my legs; they just aren’t good looking.  Sadly, I was not one of those women whose legs stayed skinny and shapely while the rest of me got bigger. Okay, that’s not entirely true: I had an hourglass figure…but all the sand ran to the bottom.

Anyway, in this episode, I figured out that it’s not okay to decide that, just because *I* don’t like something, *no one* else can like it either. When you set up boundaries, and make rules about how someone can love you, the real loser is YOU.

I can identify with this, but I have condition called lymphodema. The good thing is my legs have reduced in size since wls but I still don’t and will never have ankles.

My daughter says they are like chunky baby legs, lol I wish.

Thank you for opening my eyes.

Awwww…my heart went pitter-pat after I read about your hubby. Okay, it went pitter-pat AFTER it started beating AGAIN, Reading your tale definitely made me miss a few beats! LOL. I am encouraged by both your story of renewal and hope AND your lovely hubby 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting! PS — Let me know when you are back at 165!!!

I think that's good. But, did you shave your legs?

LOL well now….there won’t be anyone rubbing my legs later….but perhaps I should before a lawn mower is required…

Or you can just braid them and add beads.
