Rediscovering my shoulders
Wednesday, October 14, 2009
So last night, as I was sitting on the couch watching the Biggest Loser (I am so addicted to that show now!) I reached inside the collar of my shirt to scratch my shoulder, and I was so surprised I stopped dead in my tracks. Was that my shoulder? It felt normal--I mean normal-sized--like all the fluffy padding was gone and I could actually feel definition of my bones and muscles there, the way it should be! I'm sure it didn't just happen overnight, but it was the first time I noticed it. I actually grabbed my husband's hand and said "You've gotta feel this! I have a shoulder!" He said, "Yeah, I know." I said, "No, I mean, I can really feel my shoulder - bones, muscles - I haven't felt that for years!" And again, he said, "Yeah, I know. I noticed that recently when I put my arm around your shoulders." Of course, he didn't say anything to me. Men!
Now I just have to keep working on rediscovering the rest of me!
