Should I gain some weight?

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

It's personal preference, I know. But recently, I've noticed - despite the fact I'm maintaining for the 3rd week running now - I've changed somehow. The "fullness" of my figure is replaced by... well, uhm, a less pronounced fullness and I'm finding this very disturbing as I do not like it if I'm not fully rounded in the right places.

I love my new waist, no doubt about it, but I would sacrifice having 1 inch more on there and being "fuller" in two other areas, if you know what I mean.

I'm doing toning exercises every week to stay firm and tie up any loose ends, although I did lose it painfully slowly.

Somehow it's not showing yet - I may have gone down one size in the upper department and I'm not happy about that. Maybe I should gain some weight back, say about 2 pounds and see if it fills me out again, whilst keeping the same smaller waist I already enjoy?

    You don't get to pick where fat goes on, but maybe you could work on adding some muscle to the area to build it up?

    I understand, I wish I could "spot-gain" in certain areas, too!

    Congrats on getting to maintenance. I think the others are right, you may need to get used to your new fab body!! Also before thinking of gaining, ask yourself where you usually gain first. It is different for everyone but for me it would b
go on my waist first.

Again, well done on getting there!!

    Yes, I think you're right. I need to stay the same in order to allow time for my body to adapt to the changes. I'm getting ahead of myself. UN_TAMED, you're so right, I have to remember that LOL.

    You've maintained for three weeks? You may just need to get used to your new body. Since you set a goal and achieved it (hurray!!) give yourself at least 90 days before making any decisions about gaining or losing. Changing your size will change your perspective on what you look like. Deciding to stay put for a while will give your body - and you - a chance to adapt.

Stay strong!!

    Remember, just like you can't chose where you lose the weight, you can't chose where to gain it, Just something you may wish to consider. xoxo
