5K Worth Of Bad Ass

Dear Mrs. G,

I love you. Do you know that? If you don't the picture at right should make that perfectly clear.

You've started this 5K Ass Project just as I am quitting Weight Watchers and trying to figure out if I'm OK where I am or if I need and want to do more. You posted a picture of your ass on the internet. Your ass! Brave? Crazy? Melissa Etheridge and I don't care, we like your chutzpah. So in solidarity I give you this.

The guidelines stipulate a picture of the ass and one of the face. For some reason I decided to do them in one shot which turned out to be...a little disturbing, frankly. I would like to thank Anne Taylor for the use of the mirror. I would like to apologize for the underwear. Until I saw this picture I thought they were pretty cute. I would encourage anyone else who hasn't tried this to give it a whirl. Weirdly it feels sort of good to just get this information out there. This is my ass. It is what it is. So is the rest of me.

So again, Mrs. G I love and admire you. Gravity? Not so much.

Love and other indoor sports,

    Obviously your stint with Weight Watchers was a success because you look great!

    I'm not sure I will have the guts to stick my almost-40-year-old butt out there for the world to see, but I am inspired by your bravery so we'll see ...

  2. Well my butt is also almost 40 (less than 6 months left)too so I think it'd be OK for you to put it out there. I kind of hate the picture but there's something freakishly liberating about just putting it out there.

    Thanks for the compliment!

  3. I felt that "freakishly liberating" feeling when I did the bathing suit post a few weeks back. I applaud you for joining in with Mrs. G. I adore her.

  4. wow, awards to you for putting yourself out there. 125 is pretty damned good. Bravo.

    why is it I think more women post about their bodies than men? How many mens' bodies have I seen on blogs, with accompanying post about weight or looks? I think zero.

  5. uh, there's no way I'm doing this. But check out that hot azz!

  6. There isn't room. It wouldn't fit. It would take up the whole world wide web.
    But you look fan fucking tastic Sister.
    And did you know that you are my hero?

  7. You guys are too sweet to me. It's not a good ass, seriously, but it's what it is and it's WAY better than it was that's for damn sure.

    Mrs. G is the hero. She's the inspiration.

  8. I have no idea if I've got the guts to post my ass. Yours, however, is looking MIGHTY damned good. I'm so proud of you.

  9. Um, babealicious? Is that okay to say?

  10. You're obviously the bravest woman in the world. I will not be showing my ass on the internet for fear of a complete meltdown. Or not enough space. Whichever.

    But good on you!
