Lesson #3: DOUBLE IS TROUBLE: A tribute to my chin

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Everyone has a particular body part that they really dislike. For some people it is their front view, their back view, their thighs, their upper arms... for me it is MY CHIN, or rather, my second chin. I'm okay with the one god gave me not the one I gave myself...

I should be thankful, I believe there was a point in time that I had 2 extra CHINS. As my daughter likes to tell me, I'm down to 1 double chins...

I am perfectly capable of positioning a camera in the precise position as to hide my double chin:

And take a pleasing picture....

But I'm here to tell you. I'm not fooling anyone. It's there and it is time for it to go. I don't need a second anything on my body, that God did not give me himself (like say, 2 elbows or 2 knees). I may have to feature my double roll on my belly at some point. I'm not too happy with that either.

This blog post was inspired by yesterday's blog post Lesson #2: SEE YOURSELF AS YOU REALLY ARE. I just had to get the chin off my chest, so to speak.

Thanks for listening.


NOTE TO READERS: Now, I am not trying to insult anyone with that extra little bulge under the chin. Or, anyone with more than one roll. I am just saying I DON"T LIKE MINE. In fact I would keep all the other weight on my body if I could just loose THE CHIN. Call me crazy, but that is how I feel about it. emoticon

    Trust me if you lost the double chin you would be happy, but not satisfied.
    It all comes off at the same time. like a melting cube of butter. So just keep melting.
    love ya

    Thanks for your comments!

    I am really trying to be honest and vulnerable with these blog posts. I think that part of my problem (and hopefully others can relate to this theory) is that I am a sensitive person who has put up so many walls around my heart, ego and mind that I have bubble wrapped it in fat also. I think that by being honest with myself in a public forum I force myself to give up my guard, and my bubble wrap fat as well. I think I'm going to expound on this in tomorrow's blog (Lesson #4: DON'T BE AFRAID TO FEEL: Let the bubble wrap go).

    That is mine, too - also my face is chubbier (round) than it was in the past, and that is usually what I notice about myself the most. Unfortunately, it seems to be the last place the weight is going to come off of... I will be a stick figure with a balloon-round face, at this rate! lol Still, compared to (let's say) the guy missing the bottom half of his face due to a shotgun blast (you can find this on the web), I guess I will be happy with what I've got for now. :)

    PS - Your entries and self-appraisal are always so starkly honest. You are inspirational, thank you!

    Yeah, I started to see a bit of a second chin forming and that was a breaking point on myself also.
