What does “Thin” feel like, anyways?
Are you one of the many who is trying to lose weight?
I gave up ages ago, but the issue has reared its head again with my doctor telling me I should.
But I think in order for me to want to work harder, exercise/fitness-wise to lose weight, the impossible would have to happen.
I’d need to know how thin *feels*. You know how the saying goes? “Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.” Yeah, okay. I can go with that. But the last time I was thin, (and “thin” is pushing it) I was 15 and in high school. I don’t remember what it feels like.
I especially don’t know what it would feel like WITH orthotics that mean I can walk a decent distance without limping and favouring my right knee. Or what it feels like without 20 pounds of extra boobs on my front. (Okay, that IS an exaggeration. I think they took 5 pounds total off when I had my breast reduction).
But hey, give me an hour with a body devoid of my post-baby fat, and the fat that got added on because I found it so difficult to walk with my weird foot. Let me feel what “thin” feels like.
Maybe feeling “thin” will give me the incentive to push through the pain in my foot and lose the weight I need to lose.
Maybe feeling “thin” will make me think “yeah, this does feel better than everything I eat to self-soothe.”
Or maybe not. Maybe I’m happier with the fat. After all, my fat and I have an understanding. I don’t bother it and it doesn’t bother me.
But to feel “thin” for an hour? I think I’d like to try it.
What do you think? Would being “thin” for an hour be an incentive to lose weight?
