Fake or real? To Barbie or not to Barbie?

Honestly I have never considered plastic surgery for any reason. Could I be the odd one out? Is it totally normal and acceptable to think about going under the knife to change your body?

Wanting to change my appearance has always been in the front of my mind, but I just figured I would have to get my ass off the couch and really put some effort into it.

Not that my body is a disaster area, but I have earned my stretch marks, my south bound breasts, and a few wrinkles here and there. I am forty. I am a bit dumb when it comes to sun block...like every year I get burnt...did I think it would not happen? I need to increase my water intake, I need to work out more, I need to stop drinking beer. Eat more veggies and fruit......

So my body is the way it is from genes and lifestyle choices...suck it up!

None of this every really comes to my mind until.......

We get to party, meet some new people, and I find myself left out of the conversation. The topic amongst the ladies is surgery, their breast implants, their tummy tucks and other odd nip and tucks. I am the odd girl out, I have nothing done. These boobs are mine and so is this tire around my waist...yup mine...yeah for me...

These women are around my age between 35-45 and they are pointing out the work they have had done, admiring the others handy work that made her look the way she does. I find my self with nothing to say.
Yes they look great, but what am I.....the swamp thing. Although a bit weird, shouldn't someone compliment my boobs...just so I don't feel like left out.

  1. I wouldn't worry about it. When you boobs are healthy they will have to go back for more surgery in a few years.

  2. Well, I didn't "earn" my stretch marks or saggy boobs. I have PCOS which makes most women have glucose intolerance which in turns often makes us fat. It can also make conception difficult if not down right impossible. I could live with these things if I was a mom, but I'm not. I'm just a barren, fat, ugly chick.

    I want my breasts lifted and reduced a cup size something awful. (And BTW - diet and excercise actually DO NOT help the boobs. I checked out the medical data.) It would mean less neck and back pain for me and improve my self esteem. I just can't afford it.

  3. Man this is a great posts in the way I feel one needs to learn to appreciate and enjoy self. Image starts on the inside, nothing new you can do to the outside will change how you feel on the inside. You can have the biggest boobs, the perkiest one and still feel like crap. Image is everything and the image has to come from the inside. At least thats how I feel. I say go to the parties and know that even @40 you're rocking.
