Tailbone

I know this is weird, but since losing weight I think I feel my tailbone all the time and it is strange or uncomfortable to sit on it sometimes. Please tell me someone else has experienced this?

    Oh gosh, yes. I have all sorts of butt bones I had no idea were there!

    I also seem to have acquired a little fat deposit or cyst at the base of my spine which hurts to sit on. I want to get it removed, but I'm afraid it's going to mess too much with my running.

    the other day I was laying on the floor in the kitchen trying to get a toy out from under the stove, for our Kitty. I thought I was going to die down there; omg it hurt so bad. I guess I used to have much more padding on my hip. Needless to say the cat enjoyed it immensely, I was her personal jungle gym for a little bit. I think we are all losing weight in unexpected places. Hips, knees and tailbones.

    Yeah. No butt left. It hurts to sit sometimes. Just try to find a cushioned chair when you can. :)

    yep, no butt left and sitting for long periods gets painful with no cushioning remaining

    Its hard to get comfortable. I had an accident when I was younger which broke my tailbone and it healed incorrectly so it has always been an issue but now it is sooooo uncomfortable. I tend to shift on the sides of my butt when I sit.

    OMG YES! I am always complaining about it now, especially laying flat in bed at night, who would have thought there were bones under all that flab! lol

    I went and had x-rays done because I have constant pain there. My doctor said that everything looks normal...I just don't have any cushion there now...

    Oh my yes, I feel bones in all areas and tailbone is no different. It has gotten better as I am getting used to it, but when doing crunches and leaning back on my lower back tail area it hurts. No more padding there!! I have been doing squats with weights and step ups to build muscle in the glute area so I have that, but so far still skinny butt..... I never thought that would ever apply to me, but it has.

    OMG yes! I had to sit through a 2 hour long orientation class the other day on a hard plastic chair and thought I was going to go crazy! Long car rides are not as enjoyable anymore either, have to constantly shift around to try to get comfortable, I feel your pain lol

    So glad I checked the boards today.
    YES!! I find it so uncomfortable! I really have a hard time doing any floor exercises. I tried a video one day, and sit ups, crunches, and some stretches - I couldn't do it since the bone pain was so bad!
