Aussie Curves: Vulnerable

On Monday when reading some of the first Aussie Curves Vulnerable week posts I was really really moved and even more determined to get my vulnerable post done, first world problems such as having no internet and moving house have slowed me down but here I am.

As with most others I too have more than one thing I am vulnerable about but I think as I have gotten older I have accepted myself a lot more, I think child birth has done a lot of things to me as well.


I don't wear anything above my knees, I hate swimming, I hate getting changed in front of people, I can't bare anyone to see my legs because I am hairy.  I am paranoid about it, I can't stand it.  It might not sound like a big thing to some people but it gets to me.  I hid it really well from my husband before we were married and even after for awhile, I know shaving sounds like the easy solution but there wasn't any point. Gosh I cringe writing his post thinking about what images you have created in your mind, but it isn't Gorillas in the mist type of hairy, it is just plain and simple my biggest insecurity.

Thanks to Aussie Curves and laser hair removal I am definitely getting these lily whites out this summer, wearing shorter shorts, a shorter dress to spring racing and most of all taking my son swimming without being paranoid about people see one little hair.  Praise the lord for laser hair removal seriously!

  3. Hair can be pretty stressful! I grow annoying hair in awkward places - my chin and my back are my biggest pet peeves!! I hope you enjoy swimming this summer! You're a gorgeous lady who deserves to enjoy her summer as much as anyone else!
