My preferred belongings are my arms and legs…that is loopy for me to mention because I used to hate them. I’ve constantly had very thick arms and thighs, I hated them growing up because they have been the telltale sign that I am fat lol. I even have grown to love them…they’ve been desirable to me. My hands held me up when I had to use crutches and walkers to assist me to stroll after a surgical procedure. My legs have been via a lot, they’re scared. But each scar jogs my memory of all I’ve been thru, and feature triumph over. I love to show them off by wearing a sleeveless get dressed/shirt, and skinny denim…something makes me sense sexy and assured.
