Does anyone else absently touch target weight loss areas, as like a comfort thing?
I’ve noticed that when I’m anxious, or just zoned out (for example, reading or driving) I will absently feel my collarbones or encircle my wrist with my index finger and thumb, or sometimes I’ll run my hands over my abs if I am standing. I think its just comforting to me because I worked so hard for those things.
Like, my collarbones. I never had them before I lost weight. Or being able to encircle my wrist with my fingers. That was something I could never do. And the abs thing. I don’t know. I think that I especially do it if I am anxious because it makes me feel powerful and untouchable, in a way.
The other day, a coworker noticed me rubbing my belly and asked if I was pregnant. I just had to laugh and explain that I zoned out and didn’t realize I was doing it. I mean, how do you explain to someone that you were feeling your abs without sounding like you have an inflated ego? Lmao
