Barrel Stomach

Friday, June 28, 2013

Still afraid of the scale. It's still taunting me from the bathroom. (Fingers in ears- lalalalalalalalalalalala)


I tended to carry my weight in my belly. I had what is affectionately known as a barrel stomach. My clothes would skim by body and then my big belly would be visible like a barrel. Litle bit like an anaconda with a belly full of prey.

Sexy. (not so much)

I am happy to share that my barrel belly is practically gone. My t-shirts and sun dresses no longer bulge. I look better overall. I feel better overall.


My profound thought for the day.

Spark on.

Have you thought of weighing yourself every morning? That might be just the kind of exposure that would help get rid of your scale anxiety. I know it probably sounds awful since you don't like weighing in at all. But, if you made it a daily routine, it might help. You'll see just how much weight can fluctuate day to day. It's natural for your body to adjust its water retention/etc. And, you'll probably see how certain foods or activities impact your weigh-ins. Plus, then there is no big surprise (for better or worse) on your real weigh-in day. Just a thought, but I know it helps me.

    I love that meme! I too carry most of my weight in my tummy. While it has gone down considerably, I would love to see it condense some more. Now that you have shrunk yours, just know that you have reduced your risk of heart disease as the visceral fat over the abdomen is the number one indicator of future heart attacks.
