Back when I was 261 pounds, I hardly EVER wore skirts or dresses. The reason? I hated my legs, and I especially hated the way my thighs would rub together whenever I walked in a skirt or dress. After a few hours of that, my inner thighs would be red and irritated. Wearing skirts just wasn’t worth it.
However, now I’ve been wearing skirts more and more recently, mainly because I’ve gotten over some of my dislike of my legs and because it’s just too hot to wear pants! Today when I was walking to my car on my lunch break, I realized something:
MY THIGHS WEREN’T RUBBING TOGETHER.
I couldn’t believe it! I was ecstatic. I don’t remember my thighs ever not rubbing together. I drove home with a smile on my face, basking in the joy of my newfound realization. I may not have seen a ton of changes in the scale recently, but I am so happy to have noticed this one tiny change in my body. I still have crazy thunder thighs and will probably never be comfortable wearing shorts that don’t cover most of my thighs, but at least I don’t have to worry about that pesky chafing!
I had Stephen take an updated picture of me in front of our house to celebrate this momentous occasion (pardon my hair-it was a lazy hair day):
And for comparison’s sake, here’s a picture of me taken on March 30, 2008, roughly 2 months into my weight loss journey:
What little thing can you celebrate today?
