I realized the other day that I carried with me a funny habit through the weight loss process into the present maintenance stage. It is a familiar habit. So familiar that I didn’t even realize that I still did it. This habit is one that I think just about every over-weight or self-conscious person does. What is it you ask?
THE SHIRT ADJUSTMENT!
The shirt adjustment is performed when you sit down, position yourself comfortably, and pull your shirt away from your stomach as to minimize the appearance of its size. You know what I mean. Men and women both do it. It is what we do to feel better about our stomachs.
I still find myself performing this most important task. Even after going from a jean size of 44 to a size 32, I still do it. When I sit down, I pull my shirt away from my stomach so that it looks more loose. I didn’t realize how ingrained my old habits were. Just a silly post about something funny a discovered myself doing.
