Someone told me that as you lose weight, your fat shifts and redistributes itself around your body. Is this true, and could this account for why I feel bigger around the middle when I am still losing weight?
With the first twenty pounds I lost, the top part of my waist lost four inches, and the bottom belly part gained two. It's now down from that, but, yes, your body can decide to rearrange its own fat sometimes.
Something has definitely happened to my body. I was just realizing this very thing last evening. I have always had large legs and butt. Not anymore, now my legs and butt have shrunk, and I am bigger around the middle. This has never happened in any past weightloss attempts. I was always built the same. It's probably aging though, as almost every woman I have spoken to about this says it happens around menopause.
Maintaining goal weight since March, 2011
Your fat can definitely redistribute in odd ways. I started off hourglass shaped, then i was banna shaped, then i was pear shaped, and now i'm half way between banana shaped and hourglassed shaped. I honestly have no idea what shape my body will be by the time I reach goal. XD
