Default My legs look weird

I don't mean that in a bad way either.

I'm walking 4-6 mi a day, and I just noticed that I have some sort of weird indentation in my legs, directly below the kneecap. It's like someone took a melon baller and dipped out a chunk of lard. (Mmm...think about that in your ice cream bowl. Just scrumptious.) There's practically no fat there. Muscle and bone are as close to the surface there as it is in my wrist.

I'm also seeing that the shape of my calves is changing. Instead of yummy tree trunks of hammy goodness (See the reference to pork products again? I'm really craving pork chops, so it's on my mind.) they're starting to look like legs.

I'm not complaining, but I also don't get it. I regained over the holidays. I'm back to within 17 lbs of my most recent lowest weight. My legs look different than they did before the regain. Just weirdness.

Blah...just a mindless post since this is the one place where people actually get it.
Restart 10/01/11 at 297 lbs...after being at 265. I won't update this ticker until I'm back to that weight.

Pounds til obese instead of morbidly so.

I just love it when body parts look weird in a good way! Keep up the good work!

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly..."

Thanks for the laugh - we do get it! I took have some weird bumps below my knee cap - or dents I'd say. In fact - looking from the side - looks like I got my shins kicked in. The calves - they are a changing - so hopefully everything will smooth out a bit and resemble anatomy 101!! Keep on walkin oh dented one!

That's fantastic. All that walking is building up those legs nicely.

Here's to continued health!

I have dropped to a lower weight than you and the area below my kneecap is just skin and no fat between it and the bone also.
As you get down to my weight, the outer side of the kneecap will also indent and there will be no fat on that side also.
You will have 2 indents whan you drop more weight. One on the side of the knee and one in front.
I hope to see more changes as I go along my weight loss journey.
Best of luck to you!
