Pillow talk last night with hubby and the subject of my workouts came up. I'm usually very private about my weight struggles and prefer the anonimity of forums like this to deal with it and don't usually discuss it with him.

Anyhow, hubby knows that I've started working out with my friends 3 mornings a week, which means 5am wakeup call to meet up with them. Its not that unusual for me, as I was getting up at 5:30 to drive my son to school and head to work all during the school year, but now that school is out, my mornings are free. I had been working out in the evenings, and still do on the days we don't meet in the AM. But all winter this past winter I was very sporatic with the exercise because of a busy "mom taxi" schedule.

Hubby asked if I'd noticed any loss yet with the new workout routine. (He hasn't noticed the food changes yet, but most of my eating modifications have been during the day while I'm at work).

So, I said I notice it in my lower back mostly. And I asked if he'd noticed and well... here it goes. Yes, he's noticed my boobs shrunk. Yeah, I'm one of those that doesn't have boobs until I get above 30% bodyfat. I got up to 34% bf (based on my scale) and I'd gotten into a B cup. Well, the B cup is baggy again and I'm bordering on the edge of 30%.

Oh well - sucks for him. :) Someday I hope they perfect a fat transplant. Just move my saddlebag fat to my chest and I'll be a happy camper.

Sounds like you're a busy one! And that you're super committed so it's nice to see that the hubby notices something... even if that's what he noticed first.

I'm not hugely endowed myself so I know for a fact that my boobs get smaller and from experience know that I get to a small C as I lose weight (which is not big at all when you're 5'11"). I'll take it gladly though if it means my legs and tummy are lean! So congrats on your boobs shrinking! :D:D

Alright, I'll admit it, I did laugh when I read that he commented on your boobs shrinking. That just seems like such a man thing to do. I could so see my husband doing the same! I can picture it now, me having to say, "Hon, I've lost 80 pounds and all you care about is that my boobs are smaller?!"

Except that it won't happen, because my chest size has remained virtually the same (may fluctuate a half size) through 60 pounds of weight gain. I suppose I could still lose some of it anyway, but watch it be in the wrong boob...

My hubby noticed too. . .
At first I was a lil ticked, "why my boobs, why not my belly?" But all in perspective. . . it does make my Insanity workouts easier!! And it also means that your hubby is still checking you out!!! :devil:

LOL, I can;t wait for mine to shrink.

On another note, I had lost like 15lbs one time, and a co-worker said `Did you lose weightÉ I said, yeah a little. She was like yeah I could really tell because you boobs look even bigger than before.. um..whatever

(and it does seem to happen that way bc I have a big tummy, and as my tummy gets smaller my boobs look more obvious or something) .. but I`m real glad she was keeping tabs on the ta-tas. not.

tooo funny! Keep up the good work! I wouldn't mind losing some of mine, too bad we can't pick where we lose first.

My boobs do not budge with weightloss.

I recently lost 8 inches on my waist and gained it on my boobs, no joke. I went up 2/3 cup sizes.

I hate having boobs. :[

I've always been boob-challenged. When I lost my pregnancy weight years ago, and the breastfeeding boobage deflated I went for a bra fitting. The woman handed me silicon inserts to try saying that usually masectomy patients buy them to fill out a bra, but I might be able to use them to give me a full B cup. {sigh} ...

So, I go around with boob-envy for woman who are naturally endowed. While I know many of them go around wishing they could have some taken away. If only mothernature were a little more fair with passing out the boobs. :)

LOL! I keep telling everyone that I wish they could suction out the fat from my butt & thigh area & put it into my boobs.

To the two ladies above me, I am willing to donate my boobs.
I'm sure if we split each in half it'll be enough for the two of you. ;]
