(Not my picture) I recently discovered this thing called “chub rub” where someone’s inner thighs rub against each other and can cause rashes and can rub holes in their pants as shown in the picture. I remember this used to happen to me all the time in middle school when I would walk home on warm days. I’d wear a skirt or pants and I would be on the verge of tears because of the irritation of my thighs rubbing against each other. I had to buy several pairs of pants to replace the ones that I had worn down. I payed no mind to it and thought it was just the material of my pants causing the irritation. My mom told me the same thing although I think she was just trying to avoid the real problem. If you’ve read this far, thank you so much for taking the time to read it. Really this just leads to the realization that I have lost an amount of weight that can make a difference; even if it’s small differences such as the fact that I no longer have “chub rub”. Yes my thighs still do touch and rub together constantly, but they don’t cause irritation anymore and I am so proud of myself for this. It’s the small changes that happen gradually and sometimes you don’t even notice them. So during your weight loss journey, please don’t get discouraged if the scale hasn’t budged. Mine hasn’t in months but I’ve seen small changes in my body and health. Keep going and stay strong.
