I thought these things would happen....

The other day one of my best friends and I were talking about weight loss, eating, working out, etc. It wasn't a very serious conversation, because we can't be serious around each other so there was a lot of joking going on as this was all happening. 

Anyway, she was telling me that when she puts on a little weight it goes right to her belly and hips. I was making fun of her because I wasn't sure what "weight" she had put on. Then she told me that when she loses weight it goes away in her belly, hips, and chest first. 

I had to stop her there, because I hear that a lot. I hear people say they always lose it from their chest right away. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I was hoping for the weight to drop from my chest. I wanted it to get small and get small fast! That didn't happen at all! I'm still a little bitter about that! 

There are plenty of ladies out there that were upset about their shrinking chests and I'm upset about my non shrinking chest! I have lost only one cup size. They do look smaller, but not small enough! 

I was telling my friend about this issue that I'm having with the chest and she was cracking up. She has long since made fun of me for my chest size and often in the past tried to use them as a cup holder for her joke, and she's not the only one. 

I told her the other thing that I wanted to happen with weight loss was for my skin to clear up. I've heard so many other people say that once they lost weight it helped their skin clear up. I'm not gonna lie, I was looking forward to that happening. I've always had bad skin. I have to work really hard to keep it clear. Mine did not clear up and in fact, I think it's getting worse!

I told her the two things I wanted, "Damnit! I want small, perky boobs and nice skin. Not the skin of a greasy teenager!" Neither of these things have happened and they were on the top of my "want" list for this weigh loss. Maybe I'll have to go see a dermatologist and I know I'll see a plastic surgeon about the boobs. I'm not coming this far to not get what I want!  


  1. Amen.. on both counts! You should get what you want!

  2. I've found that going tanning for 10 minutes every week has done wonders for my skin. I'm one of the people that constantly break out too, but since I've been going to the tanning bed the past month and a half I've seen a dramatic decrease in breakouts.

  3. "I'm not coming this far to not get what I want" my thoughts exactly!!! My flapjack boobs can me fixed after my weightloss is done... and your huge boons can too!! Plastics baby!

  4. Yay for new technology! Its great to have fixes now a days

  5. Everyone is so different when it comes to weight loss. My boobs have disappeared so I was really sad about that but I wouldn't gain weight to get them back :). What we hate about our own bodies is sometimes what other people WISH they had.

  6. Sarah, I want smaller boobs even more than you do!

  7. I've lost 2-3 sizes in my shoes. Who knew you lose weight in your feet!?

    I'm a rare breed. A small boobed chubby girl. I can't find a bra now to save my life. I may have to branch out into the non-specialty shops because my plus size shops have forsaken me.

  8. My boobs are part of the first to go club, the only thing I dislike about losing weight! I think the fact that you have lost some weight in that area is promising that you'll get closer to where you want to be size-wise as you continue with your amazing progress :)
