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.
