Default Am I more jiggly now?

I've been fat all my life. So, I know I'll have loose skin. It doesn't bother me. I figure it beats being fat. However, I was looking at the lower part of my arm today and it appears more jiggly. My wrists looks smaller. So, then I got to looking at my legs and they're jiggly too. Have I always been this jiggly? Did I just not pay attention to my jiggliness before?

Anyone else notice more jiggle?

I'm noticing the jiggle. A lot. It's under my arm. Randomly though I have definition on my outer arm. Same thing with my legs. I run so I have definition in my outer thigh, but my inner thigh is way jigglier. My stomach is definitely looser. I'm hoping as I lose more weight and do more strength training it will all come together. I sometimes feel like weight loss has made me look better with my clothes on and worse with them off.

Making it happen.

I jiggle like runny jello and I'm sure it'll get worse as a lose more. Stuff is starting to hang and jiggle...before it was bloated and more or less solid. I'll learn to live with the jiggly parts. :-)

Yep, jiggly is a good word for it. The fat kept everything nice and tight, but glad to make the trade off.

Yep, as those fat cells have shrunk, I am so much more jiggly. I was waving goodbye to someone the other day, and then became fascinated with my upper arm LOL. They used to jiggle a little when I waved, but truth be told - they were so packed with fat they were pretty firm. It's very jiggly now I'm just adding more pushups and strength, and hoping the muscle will start to fill out and take over instead

I totally feel that!!!

But, at the same time, now that the weight is coming off a lot slower, and my body is catching up... some of the jiggle seems to be getting firmer again. Yay. (and no, I'm not a crazy work out type person... don't have the time! I do, however, exercise when I can)

Oh, I hear you! Me, too! But I'm trusting that will eventually even out--my sister lost a good deal of weight with weight-loss surgery, and it took a couple of years, but her skin and excess jiggly stuff did eventually firm up.

...but yes, and I hate that I can poke my belly and see nasty ripples!!!! I agree with the poster who said looking better with clothes on and worse without them, at least temporarily--but we're healthier and getting better every day, right??

Oh, boy, I'm not that far into my loss and I can already see the jigglies. I find myself (when I am all alone) feeling, sqishing, poking, prodding my squishy bits. Last night I was laying in bed (DH snoring away beside me) and I kept running my hand over my butt, feeling how, although it doesn't really look smaller to me, it feels noticeably smaller and squishy. Kind of hypnotic... and as I lay there groping my own butt, I couldn't help but wonder just how jiggly and squishy I will be after another 100 pounds lost?

Oh well, jiggle is the price of admission and I am glad to pay it!

I am sooo glad I have Zumba tonight though...

OMG I am soooo jiggly now, it's comical. I can twist my thigh so that the "inside" thigh is practically facing upwards. Gah and don't get me started on the butt ... I actually have some sort of sick fun taking handfuls and seeing what new and interesting ways I can make my skin move. And it is only going to get more interesting from here.

You are so not alone on this.

It took me a year to lose 30 lbs, and I guess slow is better, because I am not that jiggly. In fact I was surprised that the skin on my post-preggie tummy is shrinking along with my weight loss!!!!!!!!!!! I try to strength train at least 3 days per week.

I"ve noticed that too, i'm more jiggly now . . . but I think that's to my advantage in some ways - Im more determined to keep to weight training 3x a week . . . . and rather enjoying the muscles im seeing because of it
