    Belly Good

    by Marge Piercy A heap of wheat, says the Song of Songs but I’ve never seen wheat in a pile. Apples, potatoes, cabbages, carrots make lumpy stacks, but you are sleek as a seal hauled out in the winter sun. I can see you as a great goose egg or a single juicy and fully ripe...

    I used to have a flat stomach.

    My thighs didn't even touch. I had an eating disorder, as a teenager throughout most of high school. Now im in college and I weigh twice as much as before. My *** is 15x the size of my boobs so I look really disproportionate. I have a very slow metabolism after starving myself...

    Had My Doubts

    After putting on a little weight, I worked very hard to get it off.  There was a time that I thought it never would go away.

    I will never have a perfectly flat belly. I do a hundred crunches every day, and my belly is still round and NOT flat.

    I feel very guilty that I enjoy (SO MUCH)

    meeting up with people who knew me when I was thinner and reacting to the fact I’m like three times that size now. I love egging them on, demonstrating struggles, ordering food, etc…

    Did, It's Gone Now.

    I had a nice smooth belly once before, I gained 60+lbs while pregnant then had a c-section to top it off. I'm jealous of those with nice bodies, it sucks :( I don't want to be that jealous girl tho, I need to learn to like my body.

    Unfortunately, that's going to have to be the

    case. My mother doesn't understand why I want to gain weight and refuses to accept it. She refuses to buy me new clothes and gets on to me every. time. i eat. She's starting to get increasingly angry everytime i eat "too much" and because of this, I can no longer gain.

    Look At It This Way...

    If you had a perfectly flat belly, you'd be two dimensional; no depth, unhuggable. Yikes!

    And I Kinda Don't Care!

    Yes, the truth is, I really don't care that I'll probably never get my perfectly flat belly back again. I was extremely skinny as a kid, then I became a swimmer, almost with a crazy little sixpack, and then I developed anorexia a few years after that... Now I'm a size 16/18 or...

    Not After 3 Babies And 3 C-sections

    Round Is Perfect

    I will never have a perfect flat tummy so guess this perfectly round flabby one will have to do! I'm so good at eating anyway may as well keep making it fatter and rounder
