LOL okay I know that boobs are kind of a TMI subject for many people, but hey, I have been all kinds of TMI in my blogging, given the rather personal problem (amenorrhea) I've been dealing with. So what's a little boob talk among friends? :)
So yeah, the point is....
I think my boobs have grown back a little!!
I think I've gained about 8 pounds since the summer when I hit my low point in weight and body fat, and I was told to gain anywhere between 10 and 20 by various doctors in order to get me back to a healthy amount of body fat. Most of the gain, however, seems to be concentrating itself right around the belly region. Yay. My arms do look less "Holocausty" as my mother so hyperbolically described them, and my face has filled out a little bit....but most of the regained weight has gone right to the midsection zone, where it adds on to all the bulk from my loose skin and makes me look bloated and/or pregnant (I wish...). But through most of this trying-to-get-back-up-to-a-hea
lthy-body-composition process, my boobs have stayed in their shrunken flattened post-weight-loss state. (I used to be a DD cup. Sigh.) UNTIL LATELY. I don't know if it's regaining just that last pound or two, or - and this is my personal theory - it's the estrogen and other hormones I've been taking recently. But I swear they've finally grown a little bit. Just a little! But enough for me to notice when I'm scrubbing myself in the shower, and enough for them to actually fill out my bra cups again. Extra TMI warning here - my boobs used to just sort of puddle in the bottoms of molded cups without actually filling up all the space, even though I was wearing small Bs. I guess since they were mainly loose skin and not much else. And now they fill up the cups (just about) all the way!
I am excited. LOL as soon as I realized that things felt a little fuller, I tracked down my husband and made him grope me to see whether he agreed. He did! And I think he was happy to provide his expert opinion. :)
So anyways. Between finally getting some estrogen in my system and finally getting a period (via medicine) and finally getting some semblance of my old chest back (even if I'll never have DDs again)...it's so nice to feel like a woman again!
