My disgusting body
Friday, July 09, 2010
In my whole life, I've lost about 85 pounds. I was 275 pounds at age 17. I'll admit that I'm a tall, broad girl by nature (my goal weight is 160), but that was still an extra 115 pounds I was carrying around at a very early age.
I've lost 21 pounds since starting on SP, and I'm extremely happy with it. But I find myself doubting a lot lately. See, I have a problem. I don't have stretchy skin at all. I developed a bunch of stretch marks just from growing up (you don't get stretch marks on your shoulders from being heavy), so when I gained all of that weight, well...
Basically, I have stretch marks everywhere on my body. They're the worst on my stomach and chest, though. They weren't so bad when my body was more filled out, but now that I'm losing weight all over, I'm getting really... saggy.
It kills me, because I look at hubby, and he's so lean and fit and his body is just beautiful, and mine is sagging and floppy and gross. I don't think I even have any options to fix the problem, except plastic surgery of some sort. Ugh.
