It’s Thought-Provoking Thursday today Warriors and I would really love to get some debate and discussion under way!
More and more of you are beginning to leave comments and I truly do love hearing what you have to say so please, please keep it coming. If you have yet to leave a comment, don’t be shy; let your feelings, thoughts and opinions be known! Here in Warrior Land we are a family and we respect each other’s views implicitly. We neither judge nor criticize.
My greatest desire is for my blog to be a place where you can come along and feel comfortable, involved and valued and can leave feeling uplifted, edified and possibly even inspired!
Introducing you to Watch my Weight Wednesday yesterday got me thinking about how far I would be willing to go to achieve the body of MY dreams. I say MY so emphatically since, as I explained in the post, my weight loss goals are motivated by a desire to be the best aesthetic version of me that I can be. At this point in my life I am determined to attain my objectives the good, old-fashioned way; eating less and exercising more. In the future, I wonder, will I be inclined to resort to slightly more extreme measures in an attempt to defy the ageing process?
According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons more than 50,000 cosmetic surgery procedures were performed in the UK last year, 45,365 of which were on women.
Whilst this statistic is neither shocking nor surprising the wide discrepancy between the sexes is all too apparent and begs to be explored in greater depth in a future post. But right here, and for right now, I simply wish to know:
WHERE DO YOU STAND ON THE MATTER OF PLASTIC SURGERY?
Agree? Disagree? Not sure? Would you ever consider going under the knife? If so, what would you have done and why? Do you think the aesthetic and emotional benefits outweigh any potential risks? Perhaps you’ve already had some work done. Would you be willing to share your story and describe the impact that it has had upon your life?
I know several people who have undergone a particular procedure (three boob jobs and a facelift) and all are over the moon with the results. Couldn't be happier. One friend even commented that her confidence and self-esteem have soared since her op and she no longer looks in the mirror and wishes she were someone else. On the opposite end of the scale, however, an acquaintance of Craigy Boy’s almost died on the operating table whilst having the bags under his eyes reduced. One thing is for sure - it is not a decision to be taken lightly.
So over to you, Warriors! Be bold and brave and make your opinions known!
Ginger Warrior, over and out.
