Ode to My Shrinking Bustline
Now, the purpose of my writing tonight. I am going to talk about my boobs. Please forgive me.
When I began to lose weight, I noticed subtle changes in my body. My calves, which I once believed to be muscular, started to actually show definition and slim down. My stomach started to shrink. Areas of my body I had expected to shrink, did. I had actually expected to start losing in my bust area first. I didn't. For two and a half years, I noticed the weight coming off in the normal areas, tummy, thighs, arms. I noticed it coming off in the not so common areas, feet, wrists, fingers, face, neck. But I never once changed a bra size.
Then January 2012 rolled around, and I dropped 12+ pounds that month. I am positive that it all came from my boobs.
Over the last 5 months, they have continued to shrink. Now, I don't have any delusions that one of these days I'll magically not have to wear a bra anymore, but when I wear a sports bra (which I do the majority of the time) they all but disappear.
Shirts I would normally fill out, too big. Bras that I used to SPILL out of, that I couldn't wear to work because if I bent over my boob would fall out of, too big.
The good: I still have to strap them down when I run to keep them from bouncing, but I don't have to wear double bras and ace bandage. I get by with a tight sports bra and under armour tank-top. My back doesn't hurt much anymore, ever. I bought a couple of tube tops, and I can actually wear them with my strapless bra that doesn't try to fall down constantly.
The bad: I HAVE NO BOOBS!
