Here We Go Again

I guess I should be grateful that I'm being forced to work on my upper body and abs more.


I have some trouble zones.

I've had twins. Need I say more?

*upper back
It's the back fat that shows up even more when I'm wearing a bra. I hate that!
It's drastically smaller now that I've lost 30 pounds, but I can still feel the fat.

The only time my arms were small and toned was when I was in elementary school.
I didn't like them in high school even when I was at a great weight!
I always envied those stinking cheerleaders for their great arms.

You may be looking at this and thinking, "Why is she so bent out of shape? Those areas don't seem so bad except for maybe her stomach?."

Well.. if you really think about it, it's more than half of my body.
We all have our own personal trouble zones.
I'm quite fortunate that I don't have problems with my butt, legs, and thighs.
I've been blessed by my mom's genes.
Bigger on top and smaller on the bottom.
However, I don't know if I would call that "blessed."
It's easier to work on your legs, butt, and thighs. You're always on your feet.
We humans don't walk on our hands to keep our upper body in shape. LOL.

So there's definitely a lot more for me to strive for even when I do finally lose these last stinking 13 pounds.
Lucky number 13.

I used to hate to work my arms, although they are still flabby I can start to see some definition and I know that once I get rid of a bit more of the jiggly I will have nice toned arms! Work those guns!
