No mam, scabs and all....own it sister and be proud it's amazing!!! I am on a 23 day count down and seeing you and listening to what you think has really been nice! I could go on and on about how happy I am for you, your right the cosmetic side of it isn't the most important however it is very nice for ones self image and anyone who denies that is lying to themselves. Clothes are hard to find, swim suites are awful and even jeans don't fit property, one leg longer then the other etc etc. I am 28 and i had a hell of a time in high school and I am ready....I think....lol!!! Congrats again and many thanks for keeping us updated!!!!!
