Every time I get determined to step up my game for losing weight I
see something on TV that grosses me out. Last week it was another
one of those bodies entrapped by their own loose skin. It was some
eighty pounds of unwanted skin, worse looking than fat, dimpling,
hanging, folding, overlapping, jiggling, and taking up space in clothes
that could be a smaller size if not in the way!
Is that something to look forward to if once obese? The elasticity
and gravity pull on your skin all has to do with age and losing over
about 150 pounds. Show me some positive results (skin) that
doesn't need corrected after the weight loss. The loss should be
followed by maintenance not surgery.
At the store I picked up a full length mirror. Low and behold I
found the spots where I lost most of my sixty pounds and I'm
not happy about it! It is my inner thighs and there is some skin
to be reckoned with? My focus is changing now. I find myself
looking for the spots where I lost fat and how it has changed
my appearance in that particular spot. I am finding deflated
fat cells making the skin take on wrinkles in odd places like
below my wrists and around my clavicle. Okay the neck area
but that is expected. As a matter of fact I have done neck
exercises for a very long time to try and keep that double
chin toned down. I don't know maybe this is my complaining
day in place of (PMS) which I never really had symptoms of.
Thought: When it comes to giving love, the opportunities are
unlimited, and we are all gifted.
