HNT: My favourite part

If it weren't for Ruf and this photograph, my 'favourite' body part would probably never have seen the light of day.

For three decades I hated my bottom. I lived with the daily displeasure of having it follow me around. No matter how much I dieted, it just wouldn't diminish. It was massive. It stuck out. It was disproportionate to my frame.

It was of no consequence to me that a lot of men said it was a fabulous arse, I didn't believe. I just remembered that one comment from so many years before by a boy who knew nothing of these things. His verdict was that it was huge. And that's all there was to it.

It was not until Ruf took this picture that I truly understood the full glory that I had hidden away for all those years. The strong back, with its deep concave curve leading into the soft fleshy globes of my bottom all silkily highlighted by the warm glow from the bedside lamp.

When I was looking for an avatar for this blog, it was the only image that would fit the bill. My bottom would appear every time I commented and be seen by anyone who looked at my profile or the blog itself. It would try to redress the balance for thirty years of neglect. The first step towards learning to love myself.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

It is wonderful! What's also wonderful is just how much being able to read about you dealing with and confronting your body issues has helped me to the same with mine.
Hope all still going well in your flat, BG xx
