Flab vs Sag
Saturday, February 21, 2015
Okay, please avert your eyes because it's self-indulgent overly-personal
thank-goodness for internet-anonymity introspection time.
Three months ago I was 35 lbs heavier and I had a serious case of muffin top, rolls of fat on my back when I twisted, and thighs and bottom so generously proportioned that the seams on my jeans stretched and frayed.
Now that I've lost some weight, I find myself fighting a new battle, against sag. There appears to be extra skin on my upper arms now, so I am working my triceps desperately. My bottom has lost its fullness and appears to have developed a sag - I just noticed it this week in the shower, to my horror. It can be contained in jeans but when not trussed in sturdy denim is a sadly droopy situation. So I'm climbing five flights of stairs several times a day during work breaks to try to build some form in my form. And my thighs - I am afraid to look at what's happening with the skin above my knees. It's probably best if I just ignore that area for now. I fear that particular issue may require divine intervention.
