Everyone asks me about lose skin. Some people even obsess over it, asking me multiple times.
I've been known to just let them have a look.
Whats the alternative? Staying fat? If you have ever said to yourself "I'd rather be fat than have a little extra skin." Well, then I'd say you need evaluated by a professional.
Here is the dealio natives; there isn’t one person that my loose skin bothers more than me.
I get to see it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I shower with it, look at it in the mirror. Eek! You don’t want to know the details! … It is always there reminding me of all the damage that I did to my body. Now, considering that I have shed 110 pounds, it just isn’t that bad. Unless I bend a certain way, or purposely try and see how silly I can make it look (you are welcome for the visual.)
In fact I kind of consider it a badge of honor. All that skin used to be filled with fat. It isn’t anymore.
I’m alive. I’m moving. I’m making more good food choices than bad.
I may never drop another pound. I plan on it, but if I don’t, it is ok.
I may never be completely comfortable with my body.
I’ll probably never have plastic surgery and if I do it won’t be for a long time. I plan on having babies at some point in my life and not just one or two.
I’ll never regret weight loss just because of a little droopy skin or the fact that I may never have a six pack, or be that girl that struts around in her bikini completely comfortable that her body is perfect.
I’m working on loving myself and plan on finding someone that will love my body just the way it is. Even if it isn’t perfect, because let us be honest even those who haven’t ever lost 100+ pounds, well they have things that aren’t perfect as well.
This is my journey, my body, my health.
The droopy skins is just one of the reminders. :)
