baby got back

There was a time when I was in high school that I was obsessed with my ass.
I was sure that it was too big.
I wore long sweaters and big shirts to disguise it. 
Every day in the cafeteria I took the long way round a table of upperclassmen boys because I was sure that Corey Hoffman  would be staring at my ginormous rear-end and could never ever love me!!!
Over time, my obsession faded away and I never really worried about my body again. 
But this morning prior to getting dressed, I was looking at myself in all my naked splendor in the mirror and it suddenly occurred to me that my 9th grade self would be positively mortified and quite possibly incapacitated if she could see the sheer size and magnitude of her ass now!!!

AMEN! Well said, you could speak for most of us.

My butt seems to have disappeared into my back and which unfortunately makes it look too small. It would look a little more proportioned to my larger upper body if it were bigger, lol.

The grass is always greener. I, like Erin, have no behind. It is all in the front and I would defintiely be more proportioned if I had a little junk in the trunk.

Though it is nice to know I am not the only one is inspects herself naked only to be disappointed.

I have no behind anymore but when I jump up and down I feel something jiggling back there. Mystery buttocks? Is it like the phantom pains people get after their limbs are amputated? Who knows.

BTW, I love your blog! You were awesome enough to post a nice comment on MY blog so I went to visit YOURS and now I have another blog to add to my Favorites. In fact, I hope you don't mind if I link to yours in my new posting.

I had one of these moments the other day. After having the baby a couple of weeks ago I have been mortified looking in the mirror at my stomach that has not went back to normal just yet... even though I'm 25 pounds less than when I got pregnant. When I think back on my size 9 teenage self who thought she was the fattest thing in the world I'm sure if I showed her my stomach today she would be thrilled with what she saw in the mirror! If only we knew then what we know now, right?
