Lately, on more than a few ocassions, I have been having strange feelings about my body. This is nothing terrible but mostly curious.
#1. In the shower, or sitting a desk, I just happen to glimpse over at my forearms on the inside of my elbow and that area looks SOOOO small. It doesn't even look like MY arm. I had been used to my stretched skin looking stuffed like "snausages" (not a spelling error). You know, the part where the forearm and bicep area come together! I was used to the fat just being packed into that area. Hubby even said that at our parent teacher conference he looked over at my arms and they didn't look real to him. THANKS!
I feel the same way. It was a compliment and it means that he also sees the difference. Soon, we will both be used to the new body and it will not seem like things were any other way. I also sometimes look at my body in the shower and while washing, many of my parts look so different. I have a hard time seeing my overall weight loss. However, I do sometimes have moments where I can see it. It may be my ankles today, my thighs tomorrow, and my new pointy elbows the next day. GO figure!
#2. I have been doing squats, lunges, and walking on a severe incline at the gym to lift the bottom. Today, I had a thought dawn on me as I was walking across the University campus. I think that my hips and glutes may now function independently. I can't explain it well. Before, my super !DONK! (rear /bottom) had a mind of its own and where it went, all of it went. I didn't have two separate hips. . In my clothes it looked like one meat mass.
That is the best way to describe it. And it all moved - swayed - and bumped along as a solid unit. Today, I am a little sore and while walking, I actually felt the muscles in my hips operating independently with each step. And there was not a huge giggle (that I could feel) It was a weird realization . . . and LOVED it!
Anyone else get these weird thoughts or feelings that cross your mind? Tell me I am not the only one.
