***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.
