don't like being so skinny
So it's been about 7 months since I've been maintaining. Over the past few months I've been really struggling with the weight I'm at. I never thought I'd be unhappy with wearing a size 2 jeans, small and extra small shirts, having a flat stomach, tiny waist and small thighs. I feel like I should love the body that I have but I'm having a hard time being happy about it.
The thing that bothers me the most is that I feel so bony and because I feel so bony my body hurts. My hip bones give me the most issues mainly when I sleep because their so hard I can't really get comfortable. And their always banging against things, like when I bathe dogs at work, I feel my hip bones against the tub and I have to step back otherwise it's uncomfortable. My ribs and shoulder bones also hurt because there's no fat in those areas for protection. I've also been finding that I get bruised real easily throughout my body, such as my right thigh where I'm pretty much bruised all over.
I've been thinking I want to gain some weight back but then I'm afraid of it going to all the wrong places. I've been weighing between 116-120 and I'm 5'3" so I don't think I'm underweight. I also just took some measurements, my hip is 32", waist 26", ribs 27", bust 32" and thigh 21"
So for the rambling but this has just been on my mind lately and don't have anybody else to really talk about this issue with.
Have any of you felt something similar about your body after you achieved goal?
