It’s been a while since IĀ last participated in Boobday.

And this morning, as I was deciding if I should join in, I was struggling with my thoughts.

Within the last year, I’ve lost 30 pounds. And from April to August, I dropped my body fat percentage by nearly 15 percent, putting me in the “athletic” category.

Five years ago, when I delivered my last child, I weighed 100 pounds more than I do today.

And I feel great. I’m healthy. I’m stronger than I’ve ever been. And for the first time in my life, I can do 50 “man” push-ups and run 5K.

But the weight loss, or more preciously the weight gain that caused me to need the weight loss, has wrecked havoc on my tits.

I was one of the first girls to have to start wearing a bra when I was in fifth grade. When I graduated high school, I was a size 5 and had D cups.

After having my babies, my boobs were huge. When I was breast feeding, they were nearly the size of basketballs.

As a girl who was known because of her big boobs, all I ever wanted my entire life was to have small tits.

Well, now I do. Little C cups. That are in the skin that used to hold DDD.

*sigh*

So to all those young women out there that don’t yet appreciate what nature gave you, take care of your bodies. You’ll be thankful once you’re a little older and realize you can never get back what you once had.
