The downside to weight loss...
Tuesday, April 05, 2011
my boobs have shrunk! So I've lost about 23 pounds so far & I really wish I could have selected where that weight would come off. First choice- hips, not chest! The only positive I could see about being overweight was having the largest chest I'd ever had- except for when I was pregnant or breast-feeding! So now that's gone :-(
It has been almost exactly one year since I had surgery to remove a bad parathyroid gland and part of my thyroid. When I recovered from that surgery I vowed to lose the weight I had put on over the previous 2 years. Undoubtedly my medical condition had contributed to that gain, as did several injuries which kept me from exercising as I would have liked. But I was the one who kept putting the food in my mouth- and not making good choices about what food that was!
But now that a year has passed I am really feeling good about how I've done. Perhaps I could have lost the weight more quickly or could have lost more pounds/inches, but so far I've lost almost 15% of my body weight- not too bad. I also now know that, thanks to SP, I can lose the next 7-10 pounds which will bring me down to where I was a few years ago- a healthy weight for my height & frame.
So- even though I'm not happy about losing the chest, I'm really happy about losing that roll around my middle. I can feel my ribs & hip-bones again
Thanks, SP & my SP friends
