Thyroid and arm fat

I tend to gain arm fat very soon if I take a break from exercising for few days. Is that common or am I imagining (because of the guilt 😄)

Hi Riya! Thyroid does have a control on the fat deposition in your body. But if you're exercising actively & sometimes feeling your arm fat is increasing it might not be fat but loose skin. If you actively lose fat the skin of the area can become loose. But it can be guilt as well. To prevent the guilt you can try doing some low impact physical activities like walking or stretching on the rest days. Hope this helps!
