Flab. It just sounds bad. It is bad.
What can I say It jiggles and wiggles Everyday!
It’s soft It’s lumpy
In some spots It’s bumpy
Legs and butt
I can’t keep track
But how the hell
Did it get on my back!
I remember being a kid and sitting in church behind a woman and she had weird lumps on her back and I asked my mom what it was. I thought she had some kind of condition. She explained it was her bra cutting into her back.
It was BACK FAT! I didn’t get it. I do now!
The Sunday after Thanksgiving I couldn’t figure out why I was so uncomfortable. I had a hard time breathing and there was a tightness in my ribs and chest. I thought gosh I just don’t feel good today. After feeling this way the ENTIRE day, it finally occurred to me that evening, MY BRA WAS TOO TIGHT! Mind you it’s not an old bra. That was my AHA moment. I knew then I needed to make a change. I didn’t want kids sitting behind me in church, in line at the grocery store, or anywhere else wondering why my back was all lumpy, and asking their moms “what’s wrong with that lady”, while I sit there struggling for breath.
That’s when I decided this is the year. I’m going to get into a bikini by summer. I climbed on the scale (which I’d been avoiding for the last two years) and found I have 30 pounds to lose. I’ll keep you posted on my progress and would love for you to share your thoughts, feeling and suggestions. I’d do a before and after shot….. but no.
