In February 2012, I posted an entry about Transparency. It's when I first posted my "before" pictures for the world to see. I thought that was hard. And it was at the time. But what I'm doing tonight is even harder.
Last week I posted about the vanity issues that I need to work on... the extra skin, the veins, etc. So in an attempt to truly be transparent and let God work on the part of my heart (and brain) that hurts when I see images in the mirror...I'm posting my One Year Post-Op Extra Skin pictures.
Now, being as I know not everyone will want to see these, I'm giving you the option to click on a link to take you to a Picasa album where there are multiple pictures posted. If you don't want to go to the link, I will not be offended! (This is your TMI warning of the night!) Click here: 1 Year Post Op - Extra Skin
Before you go there, the first picture below is me just about a week and a half ago. The second picture is a close-up of the extra skin on my inner thighs. I thank God for clothes!

I pray that God will fully free me from the angst I feel when I see these pictures and the images in the mirror! He is my source of peace and freedom...I need to be willing to let Him completely set me free from the negative emotions.
PS - Expect more (clothed) pictures tomorrow...after all, it's my one year surgiversary!!!________________________________________________
