For the male readers: you might want to stop reading this post...a.s.a.p.. Just warning you. Wouldn't want to traumatize you. Or make myself lose whatever dose of atractiveness I have left...
Morgan already discussed this little problemo on her blog a while ago (check out her (hilarious!) post here). Runner's boob loss. Yup (you wish you'd stopped reading now, don't you?). It's about what's in (or under?) the hood. More specifically, about the lack of it - in my case. Even more specifically, I'm what Shakira was singing about when she referred to breasts as 'small and humble'.
Okay...I'm pretty sure that I've just lost half of my followers and all of my male followers... ;) Way to go, Christel. Way to go.
It is a problem, you know! Well...sort of, anyway...
Okay, on a more serious note, since I picked up running a little over a year ago, my fat percentage has dropped significantly (you know the 'thin on the outside, fat on the inside thing' - I guess that applied to me - scary!) and I'm happy with that. But, with the fat percentage dropping, the same happened to my cup size. What the bleep! There is still something in the hood, but 'voluptuous' wouldn't be the word to describe it. Guys talking to your breasts instead of your face? I truly would not know what you mean.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not (really) complaining here. Because, A. I'm not a huge fan of breast implants (unless you're talking breast reconstruction, of course). B. smaller breasts are quite handy when it comes to running. They don't bounce up and down as much as their big sisters do. ;) C. I can sleep comfortably on my belly. Not that I do, but if I ever wanted to, I could. And D. if everything else fails, there are always push up bras to add to the bra collection! Yeah, baby!
But still. Some female runners don't seem to have this problem and are running around with skinny bodies and Pamela Anderson sized 'cupcakes' in their sport's bra. The way the world works.
I guess Mother Nature was thinking 'small and humble' thoughts when she created me. ;) Wish she had applied that same philosophy to my feet (size 10.5 running shoes...). And to the junk in my trunk. ;) I'll just have to work with what I've got here. ;)
Any thoughts on the dropping fat / dropping cup size combo?
