Now Magazine \\\'I don\\\'t think of myself as

15 April 2008

My first memory is of my dad desperately trying to squeeze me into a white dress. I was four years old and couldnt get it over my potbelly. By my twenties, I weighed 15 st., had no confidence and my self esteem was at rock bottom. Two years ago, a friend asked me to be her bridesmaid, but Id put on so much weight that on the day I couldnt get into the dress. We let out all the seams, but it was so tight that I bled under my arms. That spurred me on to lose 9st. over the next 18 months, going from 18st. 12lb to 9st 10lb. But losing weight left my breasts looking like empty sacks. I couldnt bear to let my fianc Lee touch them and I hated how they looked. Last November, I paid 5250 for a surgical uplift. I didnt feel frightened - I just couldnt wait to get it done. After the op, I peered under the bandages and was delighted to see that I had a pert cleavage for the first time in years. The difference is amazing. I still catch sight of my boobs in the mirror and think: Wow, check them out. Id definitely like more work done, perhaps a tummy tuck , a nose job and eyelid surgery. Its taken a long time not to think of myself as fat Kate, but at last Im confident in how I look. I know Im not Naomi Campbell, but Im finally happy in my own skin.
