Good story. The writer is very frank and sincere. Perhaps the story goes a little off the topic though.
You did a great job with the descriptions. i too used to be almost deathly thin, and now I avoid the mirror and camera as much as possible. Your light sense of humor made me smile and feel not so alone. Thank you for sharing your"pot belly" with me.

Four c-section later, I, too, have a permanent pot belly or "kangaroo pouch" as I refer to mine. So, I could definitely identify with your piece! It's too easy to get focused on what really doesn't matter (like our physical flaws) and forget the important, as you reminded at the end of your piece. Good writing - I enjoyed this!
