Honey, I’m Not Fat, They’re Called Boobs

Have you seen her pictures on Facebook? Why does she looks skinny in pictures? She’s fat!

She’s not fat! Her boobs makes her look fat!

The above conversation happened between two ex colleagues of mine, as I was told a few days later by one of them.

Initial reaction? I laughed!

And you betcha I gotta blog about it!

Well, honey…I may still have more weight to shed especially since I’ve been having issues with my weight for a long time and I’ve never been your typical itty bitty petite Asian my whole life. But yes, these are real boobs! They are homegrown, mind you.

So Having Boobs Makes Me Fat?

Apparently to some people it does. Heck, sometimes I feel fat too! These bad girls really drawn more attentions than I intended huh?

Pre-baby and pre-nursing I had a perfect size. But of course had to kissed them both sayonara when motherhood kicked in! Back then I always felt huge because well, hello…they were already big. Now, five years later after a kid yeah go figure.

So yeah, maybe having big boobs does makes me looks fat huh?

Big Boobs Are Not Always Good

Believe me folks, having big boobs sometimes can feel like a curse. And I should know as I came from a long line of women with them badass big boobs! Rare breed in Asian countries, yeah I know. I have to admit being well endowed as Asian girl really sucks most of the times unlike what you pervert thinks!

Most guys tend to forget that my eyes are up here under my eyebrows. Some men will gave me the creepy ogling look that makes me want to poke them in the eyes with a fork. While most girls bluntly said they’d like to have some of what I have – to which I usually reply “Can your ATM receive boobs transfer?

Living here, doesn’t make it easier on us girls with big boobs. Wearing too loose top will makes me appear fat, while wearing something tight will definitely drawn the attentions to them girls!

Having big boobs means you will draw attentions…unwanted attention. You covered them up. You started hunching your back which was something I used to do a long time ago.

Another biggest problem of having big boobs? Hello, back pain?! There are moments when my back hurts so bad it hurts to even lay down and walking became difficult! Mine has became worst since I had my son.

Let’s not even talk about getting pregnant again. As much as baby fever still caught me, seeing how big my mom is – sorry Mom! – it scared the crap out of me, dude!

Shopping for bras here can be a pain too. Most bras sold here are what I called false advertisement ones. Uhm, padded much? I have to shell more money on bras than shoes! Oh and why the hell does all those cute bras always always have to be the padded ones with tiny straps? Ugh!

Loosing Weight

Since last year, I’ve been trying to get back in shape. In total, I’ve dropped a whooping 40 pounds yo! (I’d prefer the lbs counts than the kilos as it makes it looks like I drop much more than ‘mere’ 18 kilos, eh?)

Power-walking pretty much toned my legs up, which I love and I’ve been strutting  miniskirts proudly even ignoring my Mom’s complaint. Hey, I’d rather show them legs than my cleavage these days!

My arms, they’ve never been huge – although they could use some toning up.

But for whatever reasons, these girls stays the same! So yeah it sucks big time – insert boob lift dream here – but maybe there’s a way to toned them too out there.

So as I’m continuing this shape-me-up journey, of course I’ll be posting progress pictures to share with my friends.

If you still thinks I’m fat…well Honey, maybe you just need to get yourself some implants or more padded bras?

    I don’t see any fat either. In either of the pictures. Amazing is the word I would use. Of couse, in my generation, full figured was NOT a euphemism for overweight.

    Maureen, you are so gorgeous! Gorgeous! I never had breasts growing up, so I always wanted them. You know the saying, “You always want what you don’t have”? Yeah. That was me. I wanted breasts, so much so that I looked forward to having kids and watching them “grow.” But now, I have bigger breasts and while I don’t think my are as great as yours, I love them because of what they represent. I think what matters is accepting your body and wearing what makes you looks best. And you are doing both of those things. And that’s what matters most. You are hot!

    We all have our petty criticisms over our bodies. For you it’s boobs, for me it’s my head – an Asian feature of big misfortune, ha, ha. You are stunning, my dear. Lose weight if you feel you must, but otherwise you don’t need to change a thing when all you wear is your heart.
