Embracing the new me…

Nothing that takes work comes easy especially when it comes to weight loss. It’s been eight weeks since I gave birth and I’ve been trying to lose the extra 25 lbs I gained.  It’s frustrating not seeing the weight come off and quickly as I had hoped but I am staying positive.  In the meantime, I am embracing the new me, embracing my new curves.  I was feeling down and completely disgusted with myself until I talked myself out of it.  I was being ridiculous, the body changes with a pregnancy and I have to accept it. I shouldn’t be complaining considering that I had a great pregnancy and my total weight gain wasn’t as bad as some of my friends that averaged a weight gain of 60-80 lbs everyone is different.  I only gained 40 lbs and now only 25 lbs from my postpartum weight.  I will continue to eat clean and exercise until I see the results I want.  Besides, it did take nine months. 😉

I’m not going to lie, it’s also been very depressing not having anything to wear.  Yes, I’ve said it, “I have nothing to wear!”  I sound like a typical woman standing in front of a closet lined with clothes from one end to the other.  The problem is that I don’t have a closet full of multiple sizes, I don’t believe in that anymore.  At one point in my life, I use to have several sizes considering my yoyo weight loss/gain and I never worried because I always had something to wear but one day I changed all that and I cleaned house.  I didn’t want to fall back into that bad habit.  Once I lost the weight, I wanted to keep it off and I did. Well until now, that I have a little extra. ::wink::

Wearing clothes that fit right makes all the difference so I went out and bought a few outfits in the meantime considering my mood.  Needless to say, my shopping day was depressing but much-needed.  Despite the larger size, I feel great.  I’m embracing my new curves and embracing the new woman I see standing in the mirror.  It’s been such a wonderful experience so far and every time I look into my beautiful baby boys eyes I fall in love all over again.  At the end of the day, it’s just excess weight because I hold the most important gift in my arms everyday and for that, I am truly blessed and grateful.

Does SIZE really matter!? xOx

Is it still taboo to ask a woman “Does size really matter?”  Not in 2011 that’s for sure… Don’t be shy ladies – you have the right to choose ‘your perfect size’.   Do you know what your perfect size is?  It all depends on you and only you.

Did you know: The average size penis is 5.5 inches and 6.2 inches in length and 4.7 inches – 5.11 inches in girth?  Are you tempted to get the ruler? 🙂 Every man is physically different and ranges in sizes XS-XXL. 😉

a little history:

“Perceptions of penis size are culture-specific. In Ancient Greece and in Renaissance art, an uncircumcised and small penis was culturally seen as desirable in a man, whereas a bigger or circumcised penis was viewed as comical or grotesque. Ancient Rome may have had a contrary view, and a larger penis size was preferred in medieval Arabic literature.[citation needed] Males may quite easily underestimate the size of their own penis relative to that of others, and many men who believe that their penis is of inadequate size have average-sized penises. The perception of having a large penis is often linked to higher self-esteem.[2] For women, width rather than length is a more important factor of sexual stimulation.[3] Fear of shrinking of the penis in folklore have led to a type of mass hysteria called penis panic, though the penis legitimately can shrink in size due to scar tissue formation in the penis from a medical condition called Peyronie’s disease.[4][5] Marketers of penis enlargement products exploit fears of inadequacy, but there is no consensus in the scientific community of any non-surgical technique that permanently increases either the thickness or length of the erect penis that already falls into the normal range.”

You see guys: In some cultures having a small penis meant you were desirable and in others a large penis was considered comical or grotesque.  It’s all in your head. 

Guys: Please stop being so obsessed with your penis, it might cause you to have a ‘penis panic’.   I’m sorry, I just had to… 

Learn how to use what you’ve got and you’ll be successful with the women.   Stop focusing on the size, every woman is physically different.  Don’t be afraid to ask what she wants.  Don’t rush, take your time and always put 100% effort. 

Did you know: “The depth of female stimulation occur in the vagina is just 2 -3 inches depending on the woman and no more. – Yet size does matter.”   There is no “universal” perfect size, just what’s perfect for you.

Today, at the nail spa, I asked the girls in random conversation: Does size really matters? I swear at that moment, I felt like the room went silent and I could hear the echo of my own voice.  I got some strange looks but everyone was willing to participate.  #laughing.  What did I just do?  It’s like a veil was lifted – all these women were now laughing and sharing their personal stories.  It was great.  Every single woman in that room had something different to say but in all their sentences they had that one word in common “YES”.   Size does matter to women, some are just ashamed to say anything.  There is no shame in knowing what you want. Every woman is built differently and her level of tolerance is unique.

“I looked at him and told him to get dressed and not waste my time.”   I could not believe my ears when I heard this.  I could not help but feel sorry for that poor guy – so embarrassing. After a quick second we all starting laughing… <—- I think she could have handled situation a little  (no pun intended) different but she was a woman on a mission. 😉 #lion

A few more quotes from my friends on Facebook.  I asked they answered… 🙂

“Yes! Those that say no, drive big cars!” – V.C.

“Definitely matters!  You need to have that snug fit;)” – L.C.

“Is not the size of the ship, is the motion of the ocean.  But you do not want a dingy, either.” – C.S.

“I think that girth is far more important than length.” – B.R.

“Es mejor chiquito y agilito que grandote y manganzon”… ha ha ha” – K.U.

“Up to a certain extent……it’s not only size….it’s very very very important how it’s maneuvered!!!!!” – M.F

“Not really, is the motion of the ocean!!” – B.I.

“Yes it does! And the ones that say it doesn’t are lying!” M.N.

“Yupppp” – S.C.

It doesn’t matter in what language you say it… SIZE MATTERS!   Its a basic yes or no answer. 

Until tomorrow… Peace & Love xoxo
