100 lb. Club - Gettin Squishey...anyone else?

View Full Version : Gettin Squishey...anyone else?

10-09-2007, 02:22 PM
Although I have been struggling the past few weeks with putting the pounds I lose right back on, I feel that I am getting squishy. Like when I poke my stomache, it goes in a little and is squishy instead of plain ole hard from fat. I dont know about you guys, but I like "gettin sqishy with it."

Anybody else? :carrot:

That's funny.. I have noticed that my skin is fitting me a little less snugly.. kinda like the sausage isn't stuffed quite so tightly into the casing anymore...

10-09-2007, 03:35 PM
Yep, my tummy looks like it has a slow leak.:D

Yeah, I noticed this too, but I don't like it at all! It really bothers me. It makes me wonder if it is all going to deflate and leave the skin all hanging like that. Oh I sure hope not... I want the skin to firm up!!

TWENTY TWO pounds gone!

Before I started noticing the loss at all that was the first thing I was able to really notice was that squishy feeling. I kinda like it though because it means there is ROOM in there where there was once fat. It took until about 40lbs for me to notice any difference visually, so it was nice to have some prior confirmation that it indeed was changing something.

Yeah, I'm a little squishier.

I was just noticing that this week!! I have cut the sodium in my diet and cave up diet soda with the cafeine. The swelling I would get is gone now. I noticed that the first deflated and squishy area is my boobs! Okay, I wanted them smaller but flat and squishy was not what I was thinking of. And the belly is getty squishy too. When I sit on the toilet it seems to sort of pool in my lap. What's with that? Yuck. I haven't even lost all that much yet. What will I look like later? I'd better start saving up for the lift/tuck/suck that I'm gonna need later.:^:

Will the squishiness go away with further weight loss?

10-09-2007, 11:03 PM
I'm really firm. My arms and legs are getting pretty hard. I lift heavy 6 days a weak, so I know that's why. I'm kind of worried because I still want to be soft. There is a difference between being soft and squishy. I just associate it with being womanly I guess, which is probably the wrong way to look at things.

I've always felt squishy.

10-09-2007, 11:45 PM
Yup. I keep playing with my squishiness!

Hah like Kim I'm feeling firm under the squish. It's actually kinda cool shows that all the exercise is working. Nice to feel there will be a body under there! seriously all that Turbo Jam has really done wonders.

As far as if it goes away I have noticed that it doesn't seem as much the more I lose not sure if it's because the skin has snapped back a bit or there is so much room it just doesn't translate that way in my head maybe I'm just used to it now?

Well... This is a two part answer so... Yes and No.

My arse... I tell ya! My arse is a definitive no on the squishy scale. It's firmed up wonderfully but now you can really see the cellulite dimples from the wrong angle. LMAO!

My thighs, mummy tummy, the area on my upper arms near my arm pit... Even my hips seem to now have a bit of squish.

Oh yes...the thighs! DRIVING ME MAD! I hate it! I was just wondering if what exercises I should do to firm this junk up! No...I don't want to be fat....but neither do I want to be the "bag lady" either!!! Sheesh! It is good to know others are facing the same challenge and I'm not the only one with a "weird" body on the planet! :lol:

I'm gettin' squishy and proud of it ;)

I've noticed too. I don't look and/or feel pregnant anymore lol

Did you know that there's actually a physical reason for your fat getting all squishy? And it's a GOOD thing? :D

When your body starts burning stored fat, it goes for the intramuscular fat first -- the fat marbled inside your muscles (like the fat on a steak :p ) That intramuscular fat kept the fat surrounding the muscle firmly in place, nice and tight and hard.

Once you lose the fat in the muscle, the surrounding fat is loose and flopping around because its anchor (the fat marbled throughout the muscle) is gone. Everything starts to wiggle and wobble like Jello!

Tell yourself that fat getting squishy is a very good thing! The next step is for that squishy fat to disappear. So remember, if your fat is getting squishy, it's on the road out of town. :carrot:

I HATE SQUISH!!!! Looks like I might have to go to the plastic surgeon and see what's up. I have enough excess skin to make another person!!! DANG.
I think I'll wait until I reach my goal tho-give it a couple of months more and then see. UGH

For anyone in Ontario... If you lose over 100 lbs then you can potentially have certain surgeries paid for but OHIP.

I wanted to post this, because I have noticed that I am squishy around my thigh area, and my upper arm area, but everything else is getting hard I can touch and see ( some ) bones . When I lie down my rib cage is visible, and I can feel my pelvic bones, where before the whole area was surrounded by fat, now it is melting away ( I think it is melting to my thighs right now). I am liking it!!

SHuuuWeeeeeee, after losing 125 lbs., my tummy and booty cheeks and underarms are definitely squishy. Not as bad as some but definely issues there, however on the bright side, I feel SOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo much better health wise it is worth the squish.

Hehe! Hopefully we can both de-sqishyfy at the end of this!

*Yeah I know... not a real word but I am having fun with it.

Seriously now... Anyone else perpetually rubbing various parts of their body when it re-shapes to how they want it? :o;) I must look really strange walking around rubbing that area where my butt hits my thighs but... They were not this defined when I was thin!
