I don't want to be "that" instructor!

So a couple of weeks ago I got a backhanded compliment, after my Wed. night class one of my regulars approached me.She asked me if it ever bothered me that I was the only instructor without a boob job? I really am the only one.Let's be honest it has always bothered me since I am extremly flat chested pretty much always have been with the exception of my pregnancies and breast feeding.I explained to her that I just couldn't imagine spending $4,000 for boobs! She agreed and told me she thought it was cool and appreciates the fact that I'm real and that's what she likes about me. She went on about how I dress and she appreciates that I'm not half naked like some of the other instructors. I have always wanted bigger boobs and have thought about augmentation. I don't want to be that instructor! I'm me and it is what it is! I can run and jump without any extra baggage. So if we have an extra $4,000 and you hear me taking about a boob job will you please remind me of this post! It's so hard to not get caught up in the images of the world we see and we begin to think that is what is normal and we should look like that. We are who we are and as long as we are trying to be the best we can be that is enough! Who defines perfection? Christ does and is perfection and if the world all strived to be like him we wouldn't have all these distorted perseptions! Just wanted to get that off my chest, no pun intended!

Big breasts are not all they are cracked up to be. I think the trick is to learn that the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
I always considered a reduction (mainly for my back problems and to help the sagging...yes, LOTS more sagging), but after my cousins breast job went horribly wrong, I will never ever consider it again. SO NOT worth it!!!
I think you are amazing just the way you are.

I so agree with you. I think when we do stuff like that we are sending a message to our children about how we feel about the bodies that God gave us. How can we expect them to believe us when we tell them how beautiful they are and that looks don't matter when we run off and surgically alter ourselves. So Amen!!
