General chatter - Re: Boobs/bodyfat/size. Only with a male twist

I was reading the thread on the feeling good topic about loving big boobs when you've got more body fat, and fearing the size will deminish with weight loss. It got me to remember something I used to say.

If male's "appendage" got bigger the fatter they got, how many more men would be obese?

It was meant to be funny, and to me, the thought of it still makes me chuckle.

But the fact that women may use the fear of boob size reduction as a reason to not want to get fit is not funny to me.

Is it just me? What's wrong with this picture??

Depends on if your man is a boob guy. Lucky for me, mine isn't so it wasn't a big deal when I lost a cup size recently. I was mildly upset but I'd rather be more fit-looking with smaller breasts then out-of-shape with bigger ones IMO. But that's me.

Oh gosh. That is a very good question. Probably a lot more. Although men who take steroids improve their physique but shrink the goods. Funny.

And I agree with you on the boob size. I would not use boob size to deter me from losing weight. I would rather be a "normal weight" and lacking in that area than with muffin tops and big boobs. I feel that more people are staring at my love handles than admiring my chest. I really hope I don't lose my boobs once I get to goal.

I was more than happy to go from a size B to a size A. It made working out more comfortable.

My husband seems mighty pleased that being pregnant has made me go up to a size D over the course of just a few months... I sure hope they shrink back down again!!

I'm always surprised when I read those posts. I definitely think nice figure with a smaller cup size would be much better than a bigger cup size and more fat.

I sometimes wonder if embracing the larger cup size when you are heavier is a way of coping with the weight gain... like a way to still love something about your body even though its not the size you might want. No harm in that, but it can't become a reason to put off losing the weight.

I can hardly wait until my breasts get smaller! Shopping is a challenge for sure as a bossomy lady.

LOL Lucky...I'm with you! I pray that my boobs get smaller! I can't imagine these big jo-mamas on a body the size of my goal weight! To say I'd be disproportionate would be a gross understatement...to say the least! :)

I WISH my breasts were getting smaller! Instead my band size just keeps decreasing, which makes it harder and harder to find bras. Add to that that my bust size probably is about two sizes larger than my waist/hips and finding dresses/tops is nearly impossible. :(

I wish mine would get a little smaller, too. Or, you know, the same size, except perkier. Much perkier :lol:

Its not only the size that getting smaller, its the 'deflation'!

So for a guys, picture weight loss meant a deflated and sagging family jewels holder!

Boobage to the elbows and jewels to the knees? I'd bet lifts would be covered by insurance, then!

Glad to hear supportive replies. I don't want to deminish the fear of losing what one feels makes them more beautiful. I think it's a valid fear. But I guess what we all can point out is that how beautiful is it when it's in the scope of being unhealthy?

I totally wish I had bigger boobs. I laugh at the rediculousness of how small I am on top. I also laugh that when I'm heavier than normal, my boobs are still small. What else can I do? Surgery for me is always an option but I would look stupid with big boobs. Bigger boobs would be nice, tho. But I know that there's nothing I can do about it without surgery.

I just hope that having bigger boobs becoming smaller isn't a deterant for getting to a more healthy weight.

Yes, especially with pregnancy, the boobage will shrink back and there will be empty "bags", and yes that totally sucks. It's most likely true for major weight loss as well. I just want to encourage women that boobs are not the be-all and end-all for beauty.

We all must embrace our imperfections and also remember that imperfections are a cultural perception.

The best we can be is to strengthen our bodies and accept what we look like as it is what it is....but at least we're STRONG and FIT!! Let's embrace THAT.

I've gone down from a C/D to a B. This is probably where I'll stay, from past weight loss experience. Each time I've lost weight, I've ended up at a B and been really disappointed. But this time, for some reason, I am really embracing the smaller ones and thinking they are kind of cute! Funny how that happened.

Having my weight go up and down and up and down and... well, you get the idea, plus breastfeeding two babies, it doesn't matter how much weight I gain they're still saggy as all get out. Maybe I'm lucky(?) I don't have this dilemma! :)

Women are hardest on themselves. Even if your guy is a "boob man", odds are he's still happy to be fondling boobies no matter what shape, firmness or size they are.

I went from a C to a B, so I hear ya! I used to be disappointed too but now, like you, I've learned to embrace the new, smaller ones (not literally, lol).

Yes! I feel like it represents that I am no longer overweight. That feels better to me than being overweight with bigger ones. I also think that having them smaller makes me look more lean overall. But maybe that's just my imagination! LOL. But hey, I'll take it!

So far I have gone from a 40FF to a 34C+ and am hoping for a normal C or even a B by the time I'm done. I would honestly hope for an A, but by the looks of things I don't think that is going to happen. I am loving having them smaller because it makes doing things so much easier. I can workout harder without having to wear 2 or 3 layers of sports bras just to not cause myself any severe pain. I also no longer have to buy bras that cost $50. I can grab a cute little bra and panty set from wal-mart for $15 if I want to. I have also learned that weight lifting is my friend in this area. While I lost most of the size before I started lifting, the weights have really firmed things up. No, they do not look like perky little young 20s things, but they do not look like the breasts of someone who has gone from FF to C+ either.

I find myself very amused by overweight women who carry a good amount in the chest as well as other areas who claim that the part in the boobs doesn't count. Yes it does, it's still fat and it all counts. While breasts are meant to have some fat tissue in them, they are not meant to be 90% fat. Even when I was bigger and had the FF, I never had that attitude about it. Mind you, I am not talking about women whose breasts are large because they have a lot of actual breast tissue. I'm talking about the women who before they gained all the weight were small chested so what is making them large busted is simply fat. There is a big difference there.

I guess I'm a little different from most. Mine are a D right now. When I'm at my goal weight, they are a B, albeit a saggy one. But at a D, mine aren't saggy at all. My husband was not a boob man before me. Now, he jokesthat if I lose too much weight, he may resort to force-feeding me twinkies. ;)

Not that it keeps me from wanting to lose weight at all, but I agree that the concern is the deflation not the size. If my financial situation allows for it, I see a lift in my future.

I went from D to a B and let me tell ya...Cocker Spaniel ears is what I call mine now....

It was a concern for me but not to a point that would stop me from loosing weight. I guess after pregnancy and weigh loss it's not the size that much but the fullness/density that makes a huge difference. Age was also a major factor affecting breast density. I'm 27 and my age did nothing to help the situation.

Also I think if you take a bigger cup size with a bigger body compared to smaller cup size to a smaller body = the visual effect is the same, no?

LOL topic though ;-)
