This may very well be tmi, but I have this flap of skin that I have been fixated on for years. I have a large stomach and my belly hangs over, creating a sort of flap of skin above my hipbones that I can grab like a handle. I've been grabbing at it for years as a barometer for my weight.
My belly doesn't really hang now, but my stomach still protrudes and I still have flaps on my hips that I can hang on to. I have this thing in my head now that my weight loss will be truly real once I can no longer grab my flaps.
Is this totally bizarre? Can anyone
relate to this sort of weird fixation on a body part as a measure of weight loss?
