Yesterday I left my house in a bustier-style bikini top and pedal pushers (you're welcome, San Francisco). I spent all afternoon - from 12 to 6 - going to Ocean Beach, eating a fruit and yogurt bowl, tanning in a tulip garden, walking through half of Golden Gate Park, finishing Jim Thompson's 1952 crime noir novel - all with my midriff bared. And oh-my-lemon-bars it was ah-mazing. I was reminded of Emily Anderson's chapter in Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion when she says: "The feeling of cool air on my belly... was intoxicating."
One thing became clear yesterday: it's time to liberate that belly.
