As The Landscape Changes, The Scenery Is Moving :)

Over the last couple of days I've noticed some body changes other than new sags, flabby skin and dips where there used to be mounds

A mole that WAS on my knee is now almost on my thigh. A blemish mark on my thigh is almost sitting in the crease between thigh and belly. A Tattoo that was put on my abdomin just in front of my hip is now almost all the way over my hip - head back. I think for that one I have more belly fat than butt fat, so my butt is pulling it back

Just another thing in the weird wacky world of weight loss, no one ever told me to expect

My skin is moving to different parts of my body as I lose weight and taking 'features' like moles, freckles and tattoos with it.

Im guessing from the lack of comment Im the only one. Funny

Now that's a new one on me. I have never heard that before. I'll have to keep an eye out for movement of my own skin's landmarks!

When I was a young teenager, I came off my bike and got a nice new scar on my foot for the trouble. As Ive gotten older 9and grown) it has relocated to a different part of my foot. I assumed the moving landmarks was a normal part of weightloss. Maybe I just have freaky skin

that is pretty funny. I can't say I've noticed that on myself but I don't have too many landmarks to use as guides...or I've never really thought about using them.

Funny you mentioned the mole. Last week I saw a mole on my stomach that I forgot about long ago. That brought a smile to my face. Nice to see my stomach shrink.

My hair dresser just told me this week that I my scalp was getting smaller. Can that really happen? Or was she trying to tell me that I had a fat head before

My kids tell me one of my tattoo's looks different and better than it used to. The downside is that I was planning to build on that tattoo but now I have less real-estate on my upper arm than I used to. I also have another tattoo of binary code on my right arm. 3 rows of 48 1's and 0's on each row (Binary spelling of my Wife and Kids names). It was tattoo'd in nice, straight lines and now it has a few dips and numbers that look out of place. Not terrible but to a "Type A" like me it makes me crazy.

All this happened with a 20 lb weight loss? I was reading your post and nodding my head, thinking, "Yeah, I guess I could see that happening", but then I read your stats and I am blown away!!! I would have loved some before/afters of that! Maybe there's hope for my nipples, lol!

I spit coffee though my nose! I'm concerned that the nips will relocate further south!

I have a tattoo that once was on my hip and is now part of my butt/thigh. I'm hoping it returns to it's rightful place. . .

Yeah, I have a feeling the nips have no where to go but down. Good thing there are doctors out there to fix them

Nope, no hope for the boobs. I've gone down three cup sizes and resemble a rock in a sock.

I think the reason I've changed so much is my weight has fluctuated quite wildly in the last six years. It has ranged from 170 to under 95. I do have a couple of pics on my profile. I keep thinking I should add the other fat one I found and add a couple of 'see me now'
