Anonymous asked: I totally agree with your reply about breast implants. As someone who has them, there is a stigma that comes with it. People can be very negative. They don't realize how personal of a decision it it and not everyone does it for the same reason. It in no way impacts someone's ability to be healthy and fit. If anything, mine have actually helped me get as far as I have on my weight loss journey (I was overweight when I got mine). After getting them I had body confidence that I had never had and it has helped me take the steps to become healthier that I was never ever to take before.
It was the 100% right choice for me and it pains me to see people be so ignorant and unaccepting. Especially over something that doesn't concern or affect them.
Thank you for sharing your story, anon. It is very similar to the ones I’ve heard from breast cancer survivors, women who have lost a lot of weight or who have suffered from body-image issues. Even today, there is a generalization that women who choose to have breast augmentation are superficial, less intelligent or less feminist that those who have not. People forget that its a deeply personal decision that a woman can arrive at from many legitimate perspectives. Take care and stay healthy!
