A Heartfelt Plea to the Weight Loss Fairy

Friday, October 05, 2012

Dear Weight Loss Fairy,

Thank you for your fat-melting efforts on my behalf. I must say that I can hardly recognize myself anymore after losing 26 pounds in four months.

I realize that I should be happy to be shrinking so quickly, but I feel that losing 2 inches off my hips in the past month while only losing a minimal amount from everywhere else is a bit disconcerting. Keep in mind that I have always thought of myself as having an hourglass shape. While I am grateful to still fit into a DD cup (even if it's a 38 instead of a 40 now), I do think that if this trend continues I will become quite top-heavy, much like my grandmother before me -- who, incidentally, never exercised a day in her life.

Now, perhaps you are doing this to give me the subtle message that I should concentrate more on my core, and do some abdominal exercises in order to trim and tone my waist. If so, message received. I promise I will do my part.

Now if you could please find it in your heart to take a bit more fat from my waist and belly, while not taking so much from the hips anymore, I would be eternally grateful.

    We all have different body chemistries, but the shapes are usually one of 4 basic fruits. Funny how that is. I have only lost 11 pounds as of almost two weeks ago since April 28th. I have lost 15 inches across the areas we are to measure and log on our Weight tabs. It's disconcerning to me about so much minimal weight loss, so I believe I can understand your frustration. My DD has stayed in the 38 range, but I'm on the tightest hook instead of the loosest. Congrats on your weight loss. Keep moving and everything should shed properly in due time. Don't lose faith because you are not where you want to be (easier said than done, don't I know it!), but keep faith because you've already come so far. emoticon
