Now this may not be the biggest achievement to anybody reading this. In fact, most of you are probably thinner than this already. But today, when I was about to get into the shower, I was naked and I stretched upwards, you know, as you do at the end of a long day, and I caught sight of myself in the shower and I could very clearly see 4 ribs as I stretch. And that's without sucking my tummy in!
I've not seen my ribs for years and I've never been thin enough to see 4 ribs on each side so I'm pretty stoked! But of course, when I relax and stop stretching, that all disappears but I have to say that it's better than I've been in a long time.
I'm not saying that I'm thin, I'm far from it, but this is progress! I love the look of my ribs when I stretch. I want to look like that without having to stretch. I also want my hip bones to stick out a bit. They totally aren't right now so I've a long way to go.
A few of my friends and colleagues are getting concerned about my eating habits. I don't really care unless they try to intervene in which case I will be very angry indeed!
