An ode to my collar bone

Ok, so not really an ode, but more of a fascination. Over the past few months, I catch myself playing with my collar bone. I guess I just can't get over the fact that I have one! I haven't seen signs of it for years, so it's gradual appearance over the past few months has me rather amused. I guess I didn't really notice my fascination until a friend of mine asked me why I was holding my neck and wondered if I was feeling short of breath! I didn't quite know what to say LOL!

Not only am I amused with the reappearance of my estranged collar bone, but I also am quite happy to see my knuckles when my hand is relaxed. Unlike most people, I had dimples instead. I guess I'm just amazed to see that I have a skeletal structure and I'm not just a distant relative of the Pillsbury Dough Boy!

My scale has been showing me weighing in at around 191 lbs for the past 2 days. I highly doubt that I've lost 5 lbs since Saturday, especially since TOM is scheduled to fly in to town this week. Well we'll just have to wait and find out on Saturday. If I'm already on my way out of the 190's I'm thrilled!

OMg! I have the same fascination... not with your collar bone, with MINE! It has finally made its appearance too & I'm always checking it out in the mirror. Crazy how one little bone can make us so happy! =)

Amen, I love having a collarbone, and a chin, and knees. Hooray. Shanna hit the 180's, so you and I should be on our way to join her shortly. I am ready, thanks for keeping me on track!

I so know what you mean. Although other people probably would not notice it--I like to see it at night when I'm getting ready for bed. Actually when I started this journey, one of my goals was to see my collarbone-odd, eh?

I'm new to this blogging thing & I stumbled upon yours through other weight watcher bloggers. I just wanted to say I love you blog & I just wanted to say way ta go!! I can totally relate to the excitement of your collar bone reappearing. I was so excited when I noticed mine for the first time in years.

The unitary system or window air conditioner can cool only one room at a time. - or, if keyboard shortcuts are enabled (Settings --> General) then press then , and start typing the label name The mid-century modern home does well with this incorporated as part of its fireplace surround design. The workers have been trained and are knowledgeable about a large variety of problems since they have worked on so many machines.
