Do you relate with the picture below?
Is it just your transition into a messy, more lazy person from your long day or is there more to that story?
As soon as I laid eyes on this I could relate to it in only one way that has been a part of my life for years!
Tucking in my tummy!
Growing up, I alwaysssss had a punch. That stubborn lower belly fat stuck with me as the years went by and upon entering my teenage years, I became very conscious of it.
I resorted to loose fitting clothes to prevent the bulge from showing and then one day my aunt introduced me to her temporary solution, tucking in.
She referred to it as an art and ever since then, I’ve been calling it the same!
When I would go out, I would consciously suck it in until I got home where I could relax and just let it all go. Until eventually, it became an unconscious habit that I was doing once I was awake. I mastered the art of tucking in! And it worked for me.
Of course it never really resolved my self-consciousness but when I admitted to having a punched tummy, no one would believe me. I became THAT GOOD! 😉 lol So when I told people I was working out to get me a flat belly they were all confused and thought I was making an issue out of something that wasn’t there!
Up until this very day, I still tuck that belly in but now, I have much less to suck up and by the end of the year I will no longer have need for such art as I would be showcasing a flat, toned, sexy tummy.
I am very excited to know what it’s like not having a punch, not having to tuck it in or suck it up! Come December I would relate to this very picture in a totally different way!
What’s your self-conscious struggle? Are you in the same boat?? What crazy arts have you mastered?
