Yesterday when I posted my chicken skin and I asked you all what part of my body it was, I was quite intrigued with some of your answers. Neck, boob, ankle, armpit. My neck, my ankles and my armpits are still quite tight. But when Allan said 'boobie skin' it got me thinking and it's true. Once upon a time in the land of 325lbs and 5 months post partum and still breastfeeding half the time my boobs were full and decent looking.
50lbs lost and now almost a year since I stopped breastfeeding and my poor boobs are ... Well ... Rocks in socks to use my gramma's terminology. It's actually rather unpleasant and unsightly. Picture two flat socks inflated only at the bottom by two large rocks. Yeah, not pretty. And the chicken skin here is 100x worse than my upper arm. Holy heck! This is what it looks like if I hold them up where they're sposed to go.
And this is what it looks like if I pull the skin up like I did my upper arm.
Niiiiiiccceeeee!!! Not very attractive is a severe understatement.
I'm guessing as I continue to lose this issue is going to get worse. Perhaps eventually I'll no longer even have rocks in socks but just socks. Flaps of skin where my boobs used to be.
Thank God for good bras!
