I know there have been other posts along the lines of "thing I hate about being fat" but I thought it might be nice to have a space to vent about the humilating fat problems.
Sort of a reminder about the most embarassing aspects that are driving us to lose weight (and once these problems are gone, we can look back and be thrilled). I don't want to ever forget that these were legit problems for me at one time, once I'm thin and over them, because I never want to have to face them again.....
These are some of mine:
- Having to dry off under rolls of fat after showering. I hate having to dry under my stomach rolls after showers. I always feel so gross that my body is so large I have lift up parts of it to get everything dry. The same goes for showering- I always have to be mindful to rinse off under my stomach "flap" otherwise soap gets left there. Ugh
- Having trouble shaving "down there". While this one has already gotten significantly easier with the weight I've already lost, it's somethign worth posting because when I finally noticed it was so much easier, I was like "how did I not notice that this was so much harder than it should have been??" When I'd shave the downstairs area, when I was fatter, it was hard to see/reach very well over my stomach. Now it's SO much easier, I had forgotten that it really isn't a struggle for normal weight people
- Not having my legs chafe when I walk around in a towel after showering. God, I cannot wait until I can wear a towel and walk around without pain from my tighs rubbing together even just for 15 mins or so.
- Getting sweaty under my stomach flap. When I tuck my stomach into my pants/underwear, after running around doing things, I notice sometimes that the crease there will be gross and sweaty.
Those are some of the more embarassing issues that I could think of that tend to be on my mind a lot. I'm sure there are more. Can't wait until I don't have these issues anymore
