People are amazed, surprised and even stunned at my transformation. I have not ever really been a good receiver of compliments. Usually I shrug them off or change the subject or WORSE, refute their claim. Recently, I had someone say that I look so good, and healthy and... (wait for it) FIRM!
I am relatively young.... 33, shouldn't I still have some faith that my skin (with the proper workout) will return to its glory days of being FIRM? I did not lose hundreds of pounds, but I feel like I have A LOT of excess skin. I know it could be worse... and it really isn't bothering anyone but me, but it DOES bother me.
So I come to you today... besides surgery... is there any hope for me out there? To get those tight abs (oh I have them under the layers of skin), firm buttocks, and triceps that don't wave hello and goodbye at the same time?
Please... SHARE your secrets for success or just commiserate with me.
And on the running front (since this is a running blog): My IT band has decided to return herself to the unknown - be invisible. I am pleased that I have had 2 successful runs without it bothering me. Both of my runs (one 5 miler and one 4 mile PACE) were running with my daughter know that she can ride her bike without training wheels. I am definitely enjoying the time with her and I have a feeling that she is going to make me faster one day - it is hard to keep up with her.
