:hug: I think that it comes down to body shape. It sounds like you have an apple shape. We all have parts of our body that we really hate. I hate my upper arms. I know that it is easier said than done but I am working on accepting myself, flaws and all.

I have this issue too. I found that for me..I was suffering insulin resistance...you tend to have much more fat on your tummy when this happens. I have only changed my ways in the last month or so..but with what I am doing..it has shrunk nearly in HALF. You are not alone. Your belly is fat now...but will shrink. It will be ok. :)

I have fat everywhere. :(

But I can say, it's going down slowly but surely. Just hang in there, you are doing awesome. :)

I also keep all my weight in my belly. What can I say, it's still there, but smaller now. In clothes, you can barely tell :D

I think it is an advantage. I carry most of my weight there, which means all the other places look great. So my butt is awesome, and my arms and legs not bad. It's easier to have it all in one place!

This has been on my mind all day. As I wear smaller sizes it shows even more. When I was at my heaviest it was all just part of the package, now I look pregnant. I wore a squeem for a while and it helped. I may have to get another. It is expensive in my book.

franciejones, what are you doing???????

Please dont feel bad Monique....we all have parts of our body that we hate....I hate my stomach, my legs, my rear end and my flabby arms....I can say one of my friends made me laugh a few weeks ago when she told me I didnt have as much junk in my trunk as when I first met her, lol. I am working out at the gym 5-7 days a week and I notice a difference slowly but surely, especially in my clothes. Just take it one day at a time and it will get better, I promise.

This is me too! I'm on a massive mission to get pregnant and a lot of people in my real life know this. I'm so afraid they think I am already and just don't want to ask. :( And I'm definitely not yet.

Ditto to all of this! <3 your quote!

We're not trying to get pregnant currently but have told people we do plan for one more baby in the future. I'm pretty sure everyone thinks we had a oops and I'm too ashamed to fess up. I do think I look much cuter pretend pregnant than I ever did in actuality.

Also, details on the what you're doing franciejones?

High fat (80%) and low carb. Atkins. I get less than 15 carbs per day. It has been working WONDERS. I lost 13 pounds in the first two weeks

Typical menu

Deviled eggs throughout the day...5 to 7 (halves..not whole eggs)
I put about a tablespoon of coconut oil into my coffees. I have about 4 tablespoons per day.

A fatty dinner..last night was 6 jumbo shrimp...sautéed in butter with about 2 TBSP of hollandaise sauce.

Fat fat and MORE fat. I failed at Atkins once because I thought it meant HIGH protein..

Now..I get anywhere from 15 to 18% of my calories from protein...OR anywhere from 20 to 30 grams.

I thought I would hate it..but I LOVE it. I feel very good.

Today, instead of deviled eggs....I ate 13 jalapeno poppers throughout my workday. Tonight I am having ground beef (75% fat) with taco seasonings with a giant dollop of sour cream on it. (about 2 - 3 TBSP)

Yes, fat tummy here too. Drives me absolutely crazy. And I lose weight everywhere else first!

My fiance and I have the same body type, and it is ANNOYING! We are losing together, and we both tend to lose weight everywhere else first before our tummies go down, which makes us look really ridiculous for a while. We are close though, and we tease each other about how stupid we look. It's funny because we're in the same boat.

It does get better! It's discouraging, but when the belly starts to go down it is extremely noticeable. When you get thinner, you may never have bombshell curves but your body type will lend itself to a powerful, athletic look which is very sexy in its own right. Think of a Cameron Diaz instead of a Catherine Zeta-Jones type.

My husband and I both have the pregnant lady belly look; we like to play bouncy belly off of one another to see who can bounce each other most further into the living room. Having a little fun with the bellies while they are there, but really hoping they get gone soon!

The pro to having ALL belly fat is when you get down to goal, and IF you have loose skin, it is a relatively easy fix. A lot of people I know/talk to online carry weight everywhere, so if you are having skin removal surgery, you get stomach, boobs, arms, legs, etc. I just had to fix tummy and boobs, cuz the tummy tuck fixed MOST of my thigh problems. My arms were never that bad, and the boob lift and removal of "side boob" actually fixed most of my issues with my arms.

My belly is the last thing to go on me. I've spent a lot of time looking pregnant without actually being pregnant.

I managed to get to my lowest weight ever early this year; at 5'8" and 210 my waist was still 45", several inches larger than my hips and about the same as my bust. I never measured at my highest but I know my waist was over 60" when I was around 285.

I won't be able to work on it further for quite a while though since I'm actually pregnant now. :preg:
