I know that I've done a lot of growing up through the years because I never thought that I'd expose myself so physically for all see on the Internet - now so much because I considered it unsafe though I did to show myself, but because I wasn't confident or comfortable with the way I looked.
And I'm still not all "tada, here I am" on the www-dot-look-at-me stage but I can grin and pose like a dummy in front of a camera and be OK with it, because for now, at least physically, I'm done wanting to be someone that I'm not. I am who I look like, and that's that. And if I wasn't OK with being me, I wouldn't be in front of you going all "ooh, look at me in my fun new dress ..."
Sure, I still work on being the best Me that I can physically - attempting to maintain a healthy-ish/mildly moderate diet if you eat antire entire baguette in one sitting, the calories and carbs cancel each other out, right, exercising semi-regularly, learning to use products/creams/gels/sprays on my face, getting my hair all "did."
And at this point in my life, I don't think that I would do anything drastic to change my appearance but I'd be lying if I said that I hadn't thought about it. Top of my fantasy-land wishlist? Oh, I'd love it oh so much if I could be taller. Then maybe my head wouldn't seem so big. And maybe I could work a little less hard to get some respect around here. Just a few inches, pretty please?
In a mildly more realistic world - like, let's not consider the whole very real pain, expense, fear, risk, vanity, etc. factors - I've thought about getting some midriff and thigh fat sucked up, because try as I might and I know there's differing ideas of the word "try" here I have big thighs and I cannot lie. And they make me uncomfortable. I've contemplated getting my freckles, moles, dots, spots "blasted" from my face. And yeah, I've considered new boobies - like a reasonable size - but the thought of people I know seeing me and immediately recognizing that I got new boobs turns me off from the idea more so than the cost or the idea of elective evasive surgery.
I know body image is a huge issue and we all have our own demons, so my intent is not to take a trip down to self-snark town. Believe me, it has taken a lot for me to be OK with the way I look. I am also not trying to comment on elective procedures - to each their own. But out of vapid curiosity because I believe most of us have at least thought about it, here is my random pondering of the moment for you ladies - if health or money were not issues, what one procedure/treatment would you consider getting done to change yourself physically?
