I know I said I would be working up a black sweat
, but I've been slacking lately. I finally dragged myself onto my treadmill at 11:30 last night, which is technically only two and a half hours ago, because I was determined not to let the day end without me getting some kind of exercise. I've been over at 55
having fun, and working on my book (I'm going to tell you more about that soon - very soon), but I've also been doing a lot of shameless, useless web surfing lately which means I've been spending a lot of time on my behind.
During my shameless, useless surfing, I came across this article
about micro liposuction. Apparently, perfectly healthy, slim people are getting surgery to remove an ounce or so of fat from their ankles, knees, chins, necks and back.
Now I can see if you've got some serious back fat going on, but your knees
? Your ankles
? Come on now! Are you really willing to risk complications or even death over fat ankles?
Complete hilarity to me!
After all, I've got "big" legs. This was once a compliment to a black woman back in the day. How many times have you heard one of your old uncles say, "Yeah, she got some big pretty legs!"
Today, that woman is considered fat. Heck, Marilyn Monroe would be considered huge
today. Even as I slim down, I always hear about my big legs (second only to my butt) so the idea of fat knees is completely insane to me. As big as my legs are, my knees sure aren't fat! I don't have a fat neck or chin either. Ankles? Please
! I don't want to ever be that obsessed.
But I still need to step up my workout.
