EMBRACE THE FLOOP! My old, victim mentality does show up once & a while.The other day, I allowed myself to be hurt by words from another. It's ok. I'm actually going to send a thank you note to the body shamer for the dose of gasoline I apparently needed on my dwindling fire. I'm using it as a teachable moment for myself & it has spurred this educational post for all of you...
GRAVITY HAPPENS! You know, what goes up must come down and all that.😉😉 So...students, when a person's belly was previously large and round (in addition to all the back fat), where you suppose all the 'extra stuff' goes once that person begins losing weight? That's right! It moves down & forward. I call that area my floop. (I don't know why...just..floop).
I'm not ashamed of it. I'm not embarrassed by it. It's the result of me battling health issues AND WINNING THE DAMN FIGHT! You can't go through life (live with) PCOS, endometriosis, pregnancy, 4 abdominal surgeries (induced early menopause), asthma, sleep apnea, Hoshimoto's Disease, messenteric panniculits, and the rest of my list, and not expect some floop.
It does make it difficult to be fitted for specialty apparel (insert dig at Mr suit designer/body shamer here) However, it doesn't mean I haven't worked hard or that I haven't been dieting or that I'm not on a strict regimen. Quite the opposite is true!
Every time I lose fat elsewhere, there's more floop and if you can't embrace the floop, I don't want to do business you anyway.
P.S. I'm doing it all naturally & prescription (med) free by the way
