I found it!


Saturday, June 01, 2013

The other night, I was changing for bed. I took off my blouse in the dim light (dh was already asleep), and wasn't sure what I was looking at. It then dawned on me - my WAIST!

It's back!

Oh, how I've missed it!

You see, I have always been bottom-heavy. Even on my wedding day, with all 125 lbs of me, my hips and bottom were disproportionately bigger than my upper half. But my waist has always been tiny in comparison (so have my breasts, but that's another blog).

Well, with 50 extra pounds on my frame, one of my favourite features was covered. In fat.

But not anymore, 10 lbs down, and it has started to re-assert itself. And with it, I've found my motivation again. It must have been hiding under that fat roll all along!

Now, directly under my new-found smaller waist is a tummy roll of gigantic proportions, but I can only do this one day, one workout, one nutritional choice at a time.

Stay tuned, though, for an "I found my hip bones" blog!

    Figures are very sneaky that way...How about we blame it on all those people saying "Go Figure"...we weren't supposed to take it literally? :)

(I had a rush today too....size 14 knock about jeans -i'm the one with no hips-i didn't have to undo the button or zipper to pull them off!!! yay)

    Way to go, Gorgeous!!! WHOO HOO!

BTW, regarding body shape, I could so have written this blog, LOL! We are apparently cut from the same mold.

I, too, have always considered my waist my best feature (even if it does emphasize my butt... I'm not wide, I'm thick), and I really did miss it... it's great to have it back... and my hipbones! Just the other day I was standing with my hands on my hips, and it occured to me to wonder what was so hard under my hand... pelvic bone! I'd forgotten what that felt like.

The weird thing for me is that while the scale isn't moving at all, I still seem to be uncovering bones... and it cannot be all of the strength training I'm not doing, LOL!

Anyway, I'm so glad for you! You are so going to enjoy shopping for that wedding!

    CJ, that is awesome! Congrats on seeing your hard work starting to pay off. I, too, am looking forward to seeing my relatively small waist again someday. You have given me hope and motivation!
