NSV, Caught by Surprise!

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Walking is now a pleasure, as my inner thighs no longer touch! Apparently, all the spinning classes I've been doing has toned up my inner thighs, and now that awful, "flabby" tissue/loose skin that had always rubbed together when I walked, no longer meets!! (It's still there, but not as pronounced).

It kinda caught me by surprise one day. I was walking into Walmart & something just felt different. Couldn't exactly put my finger on it even. I felt a little lighter on my feet. I had just weighed myself that morning, so I knew I hadn't lost any weight. Thought maybe I was walking with my legs pointed out or something. Just couldn't figure out what was different. So I thought maybe it was something with my gait? So I paid particular attention to my legs & how they were moving.

Then I noticed it . . . my upper-most, inner thigh-flab area was not touching anymore (we all know that area, don't we?)! I must have been grinning from ear-to-ear!! You see, I'm still wearing "those" comfortable loose, elastic-waist-type pants, so I've been so used to skin-touching-skin for many, many years.

What a wonderful, fantastic, marvelous, exciting, you-name-it, NSV!!! Really a big one for me! I've always been embarrassed by my big legs & for them to be shrinking down to a more normal size is monumental for me. Talk about incentive . . .

I credit spinning class & the toning it's doing for this NSV. It's a keeper!!!

    Oh, Carol, congrats! I can SO relate!! This was the hugest thing for me. I tend to carry all my extra weight in my upper arms and thighs (and butt)—but my thighs are the worst. Even when I was a kid, they rubbed together. A few weeks ago, I wore a dress out to dinner without stockings or a "spanx" type undergarment—for the first time in my LIFE. I am not even kidding. I couldn't stop smiling.

BEST feeling! I'm so glad you got to experience it.

    Woohoo! I have just discovered spinning too, so this motivates me to keep it up. I definitely have inner thighs that need reducing! Thanks, Carol!

I think it's probably time for new pants WITHOUT elastic/ stretchy fabric! You're doing great!
