Running out of my skin
Friday, April 06, 2012
Literally! This morning when I was getting ready for work I have a full length mirror and I noticed that my upper thighs looked really flabby fat. So of course I have to investigate and OMG it's aweful... I have these little pillow pouchy looking things right at the top inside of my thighs, so I was a little creeped out and feeling gross. I got dressed in my new smaller pants and they still fit like a dream so I'm like ok, what gives. My legs are getting puffy fat but my pants fit the same. Fast forward to getting ready for the gym. I get my pants on and look in the mirror again and I have the baggy saggy things showing in my workout pants. Now I've been watching my body change in these pants and I KNOW I haven't looked like this until today. When I get to the gym I was telling my friend that works out with me about it and I was like I'm so grossed out right now! And she was like OMG girl I am so glad you said that because I NOTICED my legs are the same way! And they weren't that way before. So we finished our run and went to stretch and were standing in front of the mirror's in the gym wiggling our new "pillows" and they wiggle and jiggle. Now I can honestly say I have big legs but they've NEVER Wiggled and jiggled...I have nick named my new found pillows the bull dog lol. Boy we were a sight standing there in the open comparing our new found over night appearing flabby wiggly jiggly's. There is no way our legs could have changed that fast right? Could our muscles be toning up faster than the fat is burning and shrinking? So it got us thinking, and honestly not so sure we want to continue running if were going to have hanging wobbly skin everywhere. Honestly I'm not a vain person but I'm trying to get in better shape and look like I take care of myself and now I'm looking worse. Anyway back on subject....so I get home and I get out my tape measure and log into my measurement tracker and HOLY SCHNIKES!!!!! Since we've started running I've lost 3 inches on my hips, 3/4 in from my waist, 1/2 inches from my thighs, 1/2 inch from my calves ....This is by far my biggest inch loss in a short time. So now I need to get them toned up lol.
