Why I Don't Jog



I've had this cartoon up on my corkboard for so many years, I cannot even remember how many it's been. Seriously, this was, and still could be, me. I laughed my ass off when I first saw the cartoon, but it also held truth. I got this before I had my boobs hacked off 8 years ago and it was much funnier with the jumbo's I was carrying on my chest back then.

In addition to my issue with breathing while jogging, my other main problem is the girls. I have to hold my arms to my chest while I run/jog so they don't hit me in the face. Okay, so it's not like that anymore, but they are still big enough to flop and hurt when I bounce. I'm in need of a major, vice-grip sports bra for my ta-ta's. Any suggestions?

I have this same exact problem... if you find any good sports bras let me know. I could use one myself :)

I had to laugh when I read this. I always wonder about people who get boob jobs. Don't they realize the annoyance they've just paid for? Of course, their's probably don't flop, just bounce ever so slightly. ;) I wish I had a suggestion for you, but I struggle with it myself every day I go to the gym. Right now I'm wearing one that is way to small for me to keep the girls in tight, and then wear a slightly bigger one to smooth out the double boob issue I just created. It isn't perfect or terribly comfortable, but it's sort of doing the trick for now.

Go to athleta.com! They have *lots* of smashers for folks like us! I've finally kicked all this baby weight and dropped like 3 sizes and would you believe the girls are just as prominent as ever?! Grrrr. And they get bigger with each kid. Any more and I'll need a sidecar to carry them in 'cause God knows they can't carry themselves anymore.

Duck tape!!!

That stuff can really solve any dilemma!

Seriously, If you go to Dick's Sporting Goods or Scheel's, they have a really good selection of sports bras for larger chested women. I have one I love that really keeps 'em from flopping, but I can't remember the brand off-hand. The bad part, is you'll likely pay $40 on up.

Okay - so I know, "be careful what you wish for" and "the grass is always greener" and whatever other wonderful saying can apply - - but I have NEVER even remotely had this issue...I still compete with the preteens for the bras in the "dainty" section - - I am so jealous!!!! LOL!
