Default Un-Folding!

I love the silly "YAY" moments that come with losing a lil' weight. This morning I was checking myself out in the mirror before my shower and was inspecting my lower belly. I thought something looked weird... I realized I could see the bottom of it. It used to be sort of a flap, or a fold of fat that rested on the skin below it, but now it appears to have shrunk enough that it doesn't fold over anymore. Crazy!

That prompted me to turn around and check out the back fat situation. I used to have this Michelin-Man look to my back with folds stacked on top of each other, but wow! Now they are just... bulges. Ha! All of my fat is now self-supporting! No more folds!

This gives me great optimism for how my skin will look later. It looks like it's still got some bounce-back left in it.

Yay for being bulge-y instead of foldy!
I gained 130 pounds over Ten Years. I am losing it in Ten mini goals (or Years) of 13 pounds each!

I didn't think I'd cheer for bulges but yes, they are much better than folds.

Congrats on your bulges!!!! Now we all have another NSV we can look for! lol!

LOL! I know what you mean about the belly thing. I had this crazy dark purple line running under that belly fat. Now it's a faint purple line and I'm thrilled! I keep waiting for it go away, but alas, I think it may be one of the last things to go. I'm ok with a pouch, but this is more like Santa's bag of toys.

It IS great, and I can also add another giggle at 3FC terms. I am just amazed and delighted at how frank and also how silly we can be as we work on such a difficult, complex problem as weight loss.

I am still in the folds club but look forward to just bulges soon. I think I have pretty un-elasticy skin though, as I remember having folds when I weighed just 200 lbs. Albeit, much smaller sacks of fat folded over. LOL

First Mini-Goal: Lose 10 lbs. Met 2/22/2010
Second Mini-Goal: 20 lbs. down Met 4/23/2010
Third Mini-Goal: Lost 10% body weight (27 lbs down) Met 9/13/2010
Fourth Mini-Goal: Lose 8 more lbs to = 40 lbs lost :
Back on track:9/5/2011 First goal: get back to 246

What a relief!! Un-folding.. This is a GOOD thing.

From the title, I thought for certain this was a thread about - going off plan, you know - spiraling out of control - unfolding - like in unraveling.

So glad it's not!!! Congratulations and may you continue to un-fold (& de-bulge-ify) away.

Wait until you're celebrating 'knobbly'. I looked down at my left knee on Tuesday whilst I was driving. I was wearing a skirt for the first time this year and realised that yes, that bump on my left leg was a knobble - I had knobbly knees. Who'd have thought that that would be a cause for celebration
