Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I've worn a watch on my left wrist for years and my wrist now has a very distinct ridge just beyond the line of my watch. You can actually feel where the thickness of the fat beneath the skin gets thicker at that point. My right wrist is not hugely different looking but you can definitely feel the difference when you touch the wrist and feel the layer of fat there.

So my question is, what happened to the fat on my left wrist? Did it get compressed into a thinner layer? Did it get squeezed out of the way? Or is years of pressure/restriction to an area the magical answer to targeted fat loss which has eluded so many for so long (being facetious here).

Dear You,

I don't know what causes this, but I had the same thing happen on my ring finger. Unlike all the rest of my fingers, which have an even layer of fat under the skin that you can't really tell is there because it's just evenly distributed, my ring finger is skinnier at the bottom where I wear my ring, and then a little bit fatter right above there. It's like the fat got pushed up out of the way after wearing my ring every day for 3 years.
