You look great, I wanna keep my butt! So far you are the only person on here that I see that is built similar to me. I have always carried my weight below the navel also. At one point I was 38 in the waist and 54 in the hips ( yeah husband loved it) now its just outta control. But you are beautiful, great job!

I'm not seeing lumpy! I'm seeing a gorgeous, curvy lady who doesn't look anywhere near old enough to be that little girls Mommy! You look amazing, well done, and thanks for the review, they mean so much to us about to be sleeved but there aren't that many reviews.
