Default Someone tell me how to make my butt shrink...

So i posted earlier about being able to see my weight loss in my face. This got me to thinking about some old clothes in a size down. I put on my big girl panties and went and tried on a few things in my closet. I found out two things:
1. I'm a size down in shirts and that is awesome! My legs are a bit smaller in the thighs than what they were also.
2. My butt is HUGE. JLo ain't got nothing on me. I've always had a large butt no matter what size I'm at but it is crazy big. So how on earth can I work out to get some off this booty to go away. I don't want to have a beyonce/jlo booty, I just want a normal butt. I'm pretty sure that if it were not for my butt I could wear a size smaller jeans by now.

You just gotta keep doing what you are doing. Your body decides where to take the fat from as you lose weight. There is no doubt your booty will get smaller, just perhaps not at the rate you would like.

Exactly. For whatever reason most people have "problem areas" which means the body prefers to store fat there and prefers not to burn fat from there.

Having said that, I would say consider yourself lucky that a large booty is considered desirable by many.

Body fat is body fat is body fat. Your body will decide where it wants to put it or take it... and nothing you can do will change that.

Just keep on going!

All three of you just made me laugh. ValRock the way you phrased that is perfect. You're all right, I guess I was just hoping someone knew some booty shrinking workouts lol. Don't get me wrong tho, I am excited about the loss and no amount of booty will take that excitment away.

I feel your pain - I have a gigantic bum too. It runs in the family, various cousins have it too. One of those cousins has just hit her target weight after losing 56lbs, and she's still got a sizeable bum, so I suspect I'm doomed to always have one too. Thanks for the genetics, Grandma!

My principal exercise is cycling on a stationary bike. It doesn't make my body lose bum fat before any other fat, but it does mean the bum and thigh region is looking a lot more toned and a lot less wobbly. So you could try something like that. And in the meantime, remember JohnP is telling the truth - a lot of people like big bums! And would you rather have a curvy one or a totally flat one?

One last thing to note is that, unfortunately, it may still be quite a while before you're in a smaller size. I started at 255, and couldn't get into a size smaller jeans until I was down to 220. It sucks, but the bigger you are to start with, the more of you there is to spread the weight over, so the more you have to shift to see a difference. Stick with it though, when you get there it's going to feel amazing!

All I want is some junk in the trunk! I have no bum, and when I lose weight thats the first place it comes off! My only hope is lunges and squats to build up some muscle there. or padded underwear.

Just keep in mind the only way to really GROW more muscle is to eat an excess of calories while lifting heavy weights... sorry, but it's the truth. As a bodybuilder/personal trainer/aspiring fitness model, I can't even tell you how many ladies I've seen spin their wheels (sometimes for years) never getting that booty they want because they're too afraid to eat more calories.

I am pear shaped. It's true that you can't reduce fat in your butt, I'm still the same shape after losing weight. I have however changed the shape of my butt thanks to the exercises Bret Contreras recommends. I really like this article and I follow the routine explained there twice a week and have seen good results:

My thighs and butt are the last place I lose, but proportionally I lose A LOT MORE in these areas once I'm in the normal BMI range. You may find the same thing.

I've been measuring my bust, waist, hips and thighs weekly. I lose weight in my bust and waist first and then a little from my hips and thighs. I feel you girl, I could be wearing smaller jeans by now, but I'll just have to settle for smaller shirts instead

Very true! Like I said, above the belly button, weight loss is faster. Below the belly button, slower weight loss. Embrace the booty...I fought it for a long time, but everyone agrees that it's one of my top 3 features!

Ha, hubs is very concerned I'm gonna loose too much of this booty. I just laugh and tell him it's just not possible. I've always had a booty. But, it is shrinking!

Keep going!!! Don't stop I promise it'll shrink along with the rest of your body.

As everyone above has mentioned, we can't target a specific area, but with constant weight loss, it's bound to come off from there too!

My size 18 butt turned into a nice plump size 8 and going down! lol

There is hope for us!!

I was called Kim Kardashian today. I wasn't exactly flattered, but the hips don't really help, sometimes it's just the way we're made!
