Body Parts You Can Live Without!

Being overweight like I was, is unhealthy and dangerous. Now that I am on the journey, I have had a few body parts disappear altogether.

You might have heard a few of these before, but it's worth mentioning them again. When our body parts become infused with fat cells, they change shape, and some times usage.

- Spare Tire: The obvious protruding belly. The problem is that for some of us, it's a spare tire for a Boeing 747 jetliner.

- Love Handles: This is the fat around the kidney area which keeps us from escaping a hormone fueled mate or attack dog.
- Prayer Shelf: A belly large enough to fold your hands and rest them comfortably on when you sit.

- Double Bubbles: Men or woman with two boob bumps from wearing a bra that is 2 sizes two small.

- Groin Blobs: Genital covering to protect us from 3-foot-two-inch children. Just above the chub rub.

- Arm Danglers: Sometimes known as the reverse biceps.

- Expansion Tank: The are fat blobs that seem to show up in unusual places - if you have them, you know what I am talking about.

- Ring Roll: The little rolls that keep your rings so secure they can't be removed. The up side is you can't lose them in the garbage disposal.

- Intake Port: Your mouth. When you change your relationship with food, it becomes a way to savor good food and enjoy it.

- Trailer Brakes: The fat on your backside that hangs over the chair edge so you don't slide out.

- Man Boobs: Boobs on a man.

- Chin Coaster: 2 or more chins.

- Cankles: Calves and ankles combined.
- Pants Pockets: They look like pockets when you are not wearing pants. It they get strectch marks, they are zippered pockets.

- Cup Holder: A navel vortex. Mine could have easily held a double shot glass.

- Talons: Unclipped toenails because you haven't seen them for a few years.

- Fat Fingers: Used for typing 2 or 3 keys at a time.

- Muffin Tops: A blend of belly and hip fat created by tight waist-ed pants or belts.
- Junk in the Trunk: Just means it's a bad idea to wear a thong.

It's OK to laugh at yourself. If you are new on MFP, these are the body parts that can be amputated by proper diet and exercise. In my case it took a serious illness; now I am working with a doctor, a cardiologist and a nutritionist to get my health in order. I could not do it on my own.

For those of you that have lost some weight, you know what I'm talking about.

Thanks for the votes and comments.

My prayer shelf is getting smaller and the ring roll is gone. Can't wait for the rest to melt away. Keep these great posts coming. They make this journey so much easier because as serious as this is from a medical standpoint we need to be able to enjoythe process and laugh at our selves a bit too. Sharon

We call them our "flying squirrel" arms, because they flap open like those squirrls who jump from tree to tree.
Jello Butt is another favourite.
And of course there's the back cleavage and Front Bum (but I think you had that one covered under another name)
Thanks for the laughs - A good belly laugh has to be worth some calories right?
