Week 13- My Chest Is Boycotting My Weight Loss!

As of Monday morning, Oct. 6th I weighted in at 222 which brings me to the end of 13 weeks and a grand total of 34 pounds! I have lost inches on every part of my body that I have tracked EXCEPT my chest! What the ?!

I think my breasts are boycotting my weight loss! I have lost 4 inches around my torso but not even 1/2 an inch from my cup size!! How is that fair? If this keeps up, I'm going to look like I've had enhancement surgery! I'll be a size 6 with gianormous cha cha's!

I did have a really awesome experience the other day when my 9 year old threw her arms around me and was able to grab her hands behind my back! In shocked amazement she said, "Mom, my arms fit all the way around you!" All the better for hugging, baby!

You are so hilarious! And that's not fair! I agree, what the !@$??

Actually, when I lost 20 pounds a couple of years ago, I didn't lose any in my chest either. So far, I don't think I've lost any there yet again. We'll see.

Well that is the first place I lose (and the last place I need to) so I have no sympathy!
