My body has felt...unfamiliar since whenever I was first pregnant almost a year ago. I think the reasons for that during pregnancy are pretty obvious. immediately post-partum is pretty obvious too.
Overall, the reclamation is going OK for an average girl like me. I'm back into my regular pants. I'm still a few pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight. I've been at this weight once before but something still seems kind of different. It's a nuanced thing that I'm finding hard to put my finger on.
Today I was getting out of the shower and realized what it is that still seems so different. I think my body composition is different. It's like the muscle is harder and the fat is softer. When I look at them together, say on my thigh, the contrast between the two is much sharper than before. As I write this it sounds kind of gross and bizarre! Has anyone else noticed this?
