I feel really out of shape. This has little to do with feeling fat, and more to do with feeling flabby. I have written about this flab issue of mine both before and after my wedding.

I don’t have any secret work out magic for you today, but I do have a semi-funny story to show a lighter side of being flabby and/or getting older.

The other day, I was trying to take a picture of myself for my acne post. I was wearing a tank top and sitting outside. Well, I angled the camera wrong and accidentally got a good portion of my armpit in the shot. I took a bunch of pictures at once, and as I was looking through them, I paused at the one I took of my armpit. Upon closer inspection, I noticed one of the scariest things in the free world…

…the dreaded VAGINA PIT.

If you don’t know what a v-pit is, it’s basically folded armpit chub and/or flailing, wrinkly skin that looks like a vagina.

I will NOT post pictures of mine, but you can imagine my horror. I quickly broke out in a cold sweat, as I wondered how long it had been there. Was this a gradual metamorphosis toward a vaginal appearance or did I wake up one morning with it?

My next thought was, “What do I do?” It’s not like you can work out your armpits. Or can you? Should I stay in push-up position until my situation improves?

Maybe I’ll ask my yoga teacher. “Can you suggest a pose that aids in the disappearance of hanging pits syndrome? Thankssomuch.”

Do actresses and celebrities get pit lifts?! I should ask Dr. Rey.

Aging gracefully might be an issue for me.

*This post is totally in good fun. Embarrassed because you too have vagina pits? We can form a support group. You don’t have to suffer alone.*

Have a great weekend, everyone. Enjoy yourselves!

    post a pic of your vagina pit!!! i think i have them, and i must know! if it's the wrinkly flab that sticks out the front of tank tops, then yes, i have them. and a trainer at my gym told me that doing pushups with your arms wide (like if you are on a mat, wider than the mat) can help tone that area… oh aging.

    Dude, I'm not kidding. I worry about things like this happening. I started sprouting a little 'gina pit pre wedding, and the 30 day shred took care of it!

    I not only have the dreaded vagina pits, but bat wings too! Oh, and my knees touch. Moving in with the dude has made me gain 15 lbs, and I'm only 5'1!!!!!!!!!
