Weird changes

Thursday, November 22, 2012

with weight loss comes some expected changes:
my clothes fit better
My feet hurt less after a long day
my tummy is smaller

some unexpected changes:
my skin is a bit weird and loose
i don't have to stress out about finding chairs without arms
I like exercise
these massive hard lumps in my skin (AKA Hip bones, Elbows and collar bones!)

and some really weird changes:
hugging my best friend (our combined weight loss is around 100 pounds) for the first time in 2 months felt totally bizarre... like... it felt like hugging a stranger... I thought it, and then she commented... and we both laughed... it seriously freaked me out!

    I'm having the same weird changes. I especially notice it when I have to sit in hard chairs. I've got a bony butt! I must have had alot of extra padding back there before!

    "these massive hard lumps in my skin (AKA Hip bones, Elbows and collar bones!) " That made me laugh! I'm so happy for you! Keep up the hard work!

    Sounds like progress. How nice to have a friend who has lost so much as well!

    Good for both of you!

    Those are all wonderful... except the loose skin, which I have the same issue with right now. But I have been told that if I am patient it will start disappearing as well!
