Since the start of this blog, I tend to write with alot of humor with a few inappropriate slurs thrown in. Which is honestly how I speak most of the time (outside of the work place, of course!) In fact, check out what my bridesmaids bought me for one of my showers....
But in all seriousness, I'd like to open up about something that is very personal to me. My size 36G breasts. Yes, you read that right. 36G.
Around the time I turned 14, I began growing abnormally large breasts. And the crazy thing was, they continued to grow....and grow....and grow. Most people would assume that weight gain caused my breasts to grow as large as they have. Yes, I have gained some weight over the years. However contrary to popular belief, research has proven that there is little to none correlation between breast size and weight gain.
In fact prior to my wedding (in an attempt to make my breasts smaller) I lost 25 lbs, only to realize that my boobs didn't change a bit.
I began thinking about getting a breast reduction during my junior year of college however I never had the courage to follow through with one. Shortly after my wedding, I scheduled a consultation with a plastic surgeon only to cancel a week before the appointment.
As I approach my one year wedding anniversary and 4 years post college graduation, I am finally ready.
One month from today, I will FINALLY be following through with a long time dream of mine. On May 3rd, I will be going into surgery and coming out of anesthesia to the start of a new life. It's still so surreal however I couldn't be MORE excited. It's taken a long time to get here, but i'm FINALLY ready.
However I have to admit something. I'm scared shitless. This is going to be an emotional month for me...
Here are some personal photos that will help give some perspective to what I lug around every. day.
My decision to open up about my surgery out here...for EVERYONE to see was not easy. However my hope is that in opening up about my journey, perhaps someone else out there will gain the courage to change their life...
In closing I'd like to link up with Tarafor Target Tuesday with my DREAM bras....that hopefully I'll be able to fit into post surgery! Did you know that this girl only owns nude and black bras. They don't make cutesy bras like these for the 36G size sistahs out there!
