Default What's up with my hips?

OK i am noticing something weird.....maybe you all experienced this. I feel like my hips are messed up and like I am walking bow legged. The best I can figure is I compensated with the fat on my legs to walk this way- now the fat is gone (relatively speaking!) and I feel like my hips haven't adjusted. I don't want to look like I just got off a horse- but that is exactly how I feel. Anyone else experience this? Will my hips and legs settle back in since they can be normal now? Am I crazy or is this not really happening????????

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Kara, I don't think I've noticed this. Maybe someone else has some answers for you. OR, is it that I do walk like that and don't realize it AND no one is willing to tell me? hum???

I felt that way for awhile. I don't think I was actually walking funny, it was just that my thighs weren't rubbing anymore - LOL now my knees bump together and I can't get my things to touch no matter how hard I try.

Ya know how you used to use your inner thighs to hold things? Well forget being able to do that now. I tried to put a staple gun there recently and it just kept falling on the floor. It was very irritating because I really needed both hands to position the paper before I stapled it and I had to get the ladder just so I'd have someplace to put the stupid stapler.

Anyway, if they are spread out like you were asking, they will come back together - then your knees will start bumping. LOL - ouch!

Kara you are too funny! And I love Christy's answer - maybe no one is telling her... LMAO!
I have not noticed this - but I have noticed that the inside of my knees keep bruising - like Barbie said.
