This One's For the Girls
I just had a delicious revelation. Pardon me for being crass, but my cans look great (I use the word cans in the interest of honesty because that is what flew out of my mouth when I had the shocked revelation to Dave the other night)!
Since I haven't gotten any new bras, gone under the knife, or found a time machine to take me back to 2001 (all of which I am open to), I am left with one conclusion...Opal's taking damage! I have no idea how many hit points she has left under her belt, but I know this, she is beginning her retreat & it's left me looking a little more buxom.
One of my self-worth barometers has always been boob to belly ratio. If the boobs had clearance beyond the belly, I could live with looking in the mirror. If the belly eclipsed the boobs, wailing & gnashing of teeth. I was surprised & horrified when Opal began digging in her heels & the bosom started saying "Bon voyage!" Though I had lost a good amount of weight I felt worse about my body.
Happy days are here again--this morning's measurements confirmed that the old girl shrunk 3.75 inches this month! I think this will likely be a cycle that I endure throughout the rest of the process, losing irregularly & going through awkward stages. If only I could special order where I wanted to shed pounds on any given day. *sigh* There's no pleasing some people.
