I think I've said everything I needed to here. Good corsets are really cool. Lingerie that makes you look and feel good is wonderful. Paying attention to how you look does not make you anti-feminist. Wanting to display femininity for any reason, including the aim of having a sexual encounter, is fine and dandy with me. But I don't want this corset anymore. It's a thing I'm not comfortable with, and it's a beautiful thing that someone else could love.

I got weighed a lot yesterday, for my pre-op and at the gym, and I'm in the region of 4 1/2lb heavier than I'm used to - about 3lb heavier than my usual period weight. Since I've just come off, let's go with that larger number. I must assume I've put on this weight over the last couple of weeks, when I've been eating and sleeping a lot and not training. On the other hand, the tape measure tells me it's half an inch to an inch of width, evenly spread across my torso. So that's just fine.

These days, while I am quite happy with the way I look, I also judge my body more on what it can do than how it's shaped. Lately I've not been too well, and I guess the bit of weight I've put on is keeping me warm. Clever body :)

I've also turned 25, that magical time when apparently you suddenly gain insights into the world around you, the future and your own soul, leading to the price of your car insurance/rental going down. So far other than those costs, all I can see is the lines on my face getting more pronounced. I'm okay with that too. They tell me I've spent a lot of time smiling.

It's good to be back at the gym.
