I need to join the chorus of stomach pooch girls, lol. My mom has the same pooch, and she's 5'7" and 118lbs. She's forever trying to get rid of it, and I keep trying to explain to her that that's just genetically where we store our essential body fat, so it's not going to go away, unless we literally starve ourselves down to an unhealthy level of body fat.

Now that I'm at a normal BMI, all my bad excess fat is in my lower abdomen. It's pretty darn collected. My thighs are a little big too, but not too bad. It's pretty much just my lower abdomen, which is WAY bigger than you'd expect from someone my weight. A bikini is not even in the question... my stomach'd just hang over the bottom part and make me look fat!

VERY round belly... and the dreaded bottom belly. My butt, arms, legs are all normal. Now, if I could only get rid of this middle!

I carry it mostly in my core or trunk. I have very muscular legs VERY and my face is chubby and my arms are okay. I have no butt to speak of and all this adds up to finding pants is very difficult! Somehow clothes that fit my wait never (Including Lane Bryant) fit my legs. I need bigger legs

Tried on skinny jeans for the first time though at Kohls yesterday and WOW they looked amazing! Might need to invest in those.

I'm envious too. I have a friend who is a little overweight but has a stomach flatter than mine. The flip side is that she's envious of my full boobs and small behind.
