An Hourglass

 I have come to really like my shape - I have thought of myself as fat because I honestly was - I let my weight get out of control but I have lost 47lbs in the last year and I am not at my ideal weight YET, but I am definitely not fat anymore.

I will always be an hourglass and I have found that it is a great shape to have - I dont know my measurements, but I know my chest is not small - but it isn't huge either - I am proud of my breasts, actually - they are the perfect size for my body.  My waist is my best "thin" feature and my hips are curvy and rounded and my buttocks (I love that word - I hear Forrest Gump saying it in my head) is not small but it isn't flat or super wide - just rounded and curvy.

Now, don't let this story fool you - I have body image issues and writing this was very cathartic for me, but it will be awhile before I totally exorcise the bad body image demon out of my head.

Thanks to whoever started this group!

I like curves on a lady. If the belly is flat then it's all good!
