Jiggly fat -- a celebration!
Monday, May 14, 2012
So I joined SparkPeople a while back, made very small changes in my food consumption, I was slowly loosing weight to the tune of .5 pounds a week. Nothing ground breaking, but also very minimal effort.
In mid March, i decided to start exercising... enter 2 walks a week and Zumba class one night a week. Again, nothing ground breaking, certainly am not "challenging" myself, but am at least moving more. I want to loose the fat and increase my strength this time in a fashion that is sustainable, and is truly healthy for me (emotionally healthy, not just physically).
I don't want to stress about the weight loss, even thou it needs to happen. I am totally fine if it takes me a year to lose 30 pounds, so long as it's a part of my normal lifestyle and it feels natural. Granted my definition of "natural" has already been altered, and I hope that it's a lifestyle alteration and not just a weight loss must get thin alteration.
So fast forward to now, since adding exercise 2 months ago, the weight loss has ground to a stop.... Seriously, the scale hasn't moved in 2 months.
However, I have loose jiggly fat! Whoo Hooo!!
Who ever knew I would be so excited to see loose jiggly fat. My belly, my inner thigh and my upper arms all have loose jiggle fat on them! I can literally see where my body is changing, where I am am losing the fat, even if the scale hasn't moved.
My hands/ fingers have lost a layer of fat on top, and have become thinner as well. When I put hand lotion on, I love the feeling of my hands, how I can feel the bones, my fingers look more graceful, I feel more feminine just my touching my hands.
I pulled down my jeans yesterday with out having to undo the button, the jeans are far from falling off me as I walk, but they can go on/ off without undoing the button!
I love my loose jiggle fat, I seriously play with it in the shower, admiring how it waves and bobs around .... lol, who knew it loose jiggly fat would be so exciting to see!
So this is my loose jiggly fat celebration and celebration that my body is changing, it is becoming thinner and stronger, even if I don't see it on the scale.
