Stop pinching your skin!

***First of all, I can't believe it's March!! Where is this year going??***           

          There are very few downsides of weigh loss; excess skin and loose skin. I’m sure there are more, but it is really hard to think of bad things about losing weight. Anyway, I have sagging skin in all the typical places; arms, belly, thighs, etc etc. I use lotion every night trying to fight this problem head on, but it’s still not enough.

            So, I’ve developed a new habit or problem. I pinch my skin. I pinch it so much that I don’t even realize I’m doing it. The other day at the gym Janelle was yelling at me to stop. I didn’t even realize I was doing it. I know I pinch my skin on my sides, my arms, and my legs, but I usually do it at home when no one is looking! It’s just crazy that I can grab handfuls of skin.

            Once she pointed it out to me that I was pinching my arm skin, I couldn’t stop. I felt like I had to do it! I started telling her a story and I didn’t even realize that I started pinching my arm skin. Janelle started yelling at me and that’s when I realized that I had just reached over and started pinching my arm skin again!

Hi, my name is Sarah
and I pinch my arm skin. 

            I was trying to explain to her why I keep pinching my skin, but I didn’t even have an explanation! Maybe it’s a nervous thing. Janelle keeps telling me to stop doing it, but it makes me want to do it more! She keeps telling me that it’s just skin and I can get it taken care of at a later date, which I do plan on doing. Until that time, I’m just going to have to resist temptation. 


  1. I know - March! Crazy how the year is flying by.

  2. I think it's the same concept with people who touch their pimples ! As if by touching it it's going to disappear ? Don't know. lol

  3. this year is flying by SOOOOOOOOOO fast it is CRAZY!! And omg... I do the same thing!! I agree with elle though thinking about it... I think i do it hoping it will shrink...??

  4. I do the same thing with my stomach, I guess just because it feels strange to have any loseness!

  5. Ha ha! Elle that is funny. I guess I never thought about it that way! So if pimples go away on their own and get worse the more you touch/pick at them; will my skin just get worse if I keep pinching it?? I hope not! I'm screwed if that's the case!!
