Sunday Confessional: I Didn't Practice What I Preach

Sunday Confessional: I Didn't Practice What I Preach

I have always been incredibly anti plastic surgery and have never been afraid to voice my opinion to my friends or family members who have either done it themselves, or contemplated the idea. I think I always preached this way out of insecurity because I wished I had bigger breasts. I was never insecure about my body, but felt my small chest wasn't proportionate to the rest of my body, and after a year of toying with the idea, I took the plunge and got a breast augmentation. I didn't stray too far from my original size because I wasn't planning on telling any of my friends in hopes that they wouldn't be able to really tell.

Well, now that I am recovering from surgery, I am still extremely swollen. I have been able to cover them up so far but I am going to a bachelorette party next weekend in Vegas and didn't take the bathing suit wearing weekend into consideration when I scheduled my surgery!

Not only do I feel foolish for going against what I have always spoken so negatively about, but also I have been living a lie for the past month about my surgery. There will be no way to hide what I have done after this weekend, so will my friends forgive me?

The only thing not to forgive would be acting like you had to hide anything or taking yourself too seriously about it. Strip with a big grin and say who would have thunk it!

well first of all, tell them what you told us!! you explained yourself well. just make it clear that you feel it was a mistake not to tell them, and you just want to be able to be forgiven and able to move on. i mean i think it would be silly of them not to forgive you, cause i mean its such a silly thing, its not like you hooked up with their boyfriend or did anything else like serious. if one of my friends had this happen i would just kinda laugh about it, and then make fun of her, lol. so maybe they will be lighthearted too

I say don't forgive. I'm for plastic surgery. I'm getting lipo on my thighs and possibly a nose job. Most of my friends are against, oh, except that they've now invested in new noses, new breasts, tinier waists, new teeth, Western eye lids, etc. It's odd that I'm the one who has been considered shallow and self-involved, yet I managed to wait so I wouldn't have to take $15K in loans while I was still a student to alter my body, yet all of these people had surgery while in college. It's annoying and I resent all of them for it. Kinda like my friend who insinuated that I'd go to hell because I volunteer for Planned Parenthood, a reproductive health organization that happens to provide abortion services in addition to many other services, yet got two abortions because she doesn't use condoms.

It's your life and your body. Your an adult. Why do you feel that you need any one's approval You don't have to wear a bathing suit if your healing or go to Vegas. Hold your head up with confidence and be happy with your new body improvement. This is your life!!!

I have a boob job too, and people are going to notice. If they didn't why would you have gotten one? I would just say exactly what you said, that you were probably against it becasue of your own insecurities. And really, it's no one's business but your own, so enjoy being able to wear all the clothes you couldn't fill out before!

I think your friends will forgive you, of course they are going to make fun and have sarcastic comments like wow look at Miss anti plastic surgery's new breasts or something... but regardless it will be more about the bride to be then you so no worries.

I vote forgive, but you need to tell your friends what you told us here: that you realised your stance was out of insecurity and were too embarrassed to tell them. I'm sure you'll get a little ribbing, but I doubt they'll be too harsh on you. You might want to tell your good friends individually before the party so that it doesn't become the focus of the event.

I think you should come clean: tell them that you felt such a strong hatred for it earlier BECAUSE you were insecure about your breast size. They will understand if they're your friends. I'm sure all you should expect is maybe an "i told you so" or two, but otherwise be prepared to hear compliments!

comes to the conclusion.. don't ever say you're not gon' do something if in the end you are... you're forgiven, you're human just like the rest of us... everyone has said something at least once in their life that they went against later...

lol, oh dear. you've put yourself in quite the predicament! i agree with whomever said keep it light--play it off like you were waiting for people to notice your very obviously changed opinions. one thing, though--i think maybe you should do a bit of soul searching as to why you hid this so long from your friends. you're allowed to change your mind (and your body!) so i would think you might want to get to the bottom of what made you be so secretive about this once you made up your mind.

They will probably forgive you, but it will be a long time before they let you forget it!

my sister let me tell you something there is nothing wrong with adding where you dont have and its nothing to be ashamed of if you want more eyelashes you buy them. if you want another color you dye it you put on lotion to soften your skin brush your teeth for a healthy mouth , follow me? so if you want a little nip tuck its your body do what you want with it and enjoy it!
