Not Enough Oil In Texas

I was sitting at the table with husband and sister Tela this past weekend. We were on the subject of flab and I told the non-mom Tela about the ravaging that happens to your belly after two large pregnancies and a 40 pound weight loss. After I got done explaining that I could pretty much fold over my tummy if I wanted to she sweetly said, "Couldn't you just rub some vitamin e oil on it?". Husband and I just looked at each other and burst into hysterical laughter.

LOL... i'd have slapped her. Kidding - seriously though, think about me - I've lost and gained 100s of lbs over the years AND had a triplet pregnancy. I'm lucky I'm not tripping over my stomach or flinging it over my shoulder (though some days it feels like I could....)

I was bending forward without my shirt off this weekend and babygirl said "mama, what's that?" and pointed to my belly. I said, "oh, it's mama's belly..." and she said "Can you open it?"

I will leave the visual to your own mind! Ack!

Hah! the only thing that vit E oil would do for my saggy belly would be lubricating the belly skin origami-folding.
