Default Need help getting rid of my "front"


I am new but have been reading this site for a few weeks now. You are all so motivational!

I lost 30 pounds 18 months ago on Atkins and then fell off the wagon, so to speak. January 1st, 2007 I decided I had had enough being overweight so my whole family has started working out every day. I have not missed one day which is HUGE for me. I have started seeing changes in how my clothes fit and how I look but I need some help with my front "butt" area.

Here' what I currently do:

Treadmill - 35-40 minutes every day (varying inclines; 3.1 to 3.5 mph)
Weights - 15-20 minutes every other day - crunches, bench press, leg press

My stomach is getting smaller, but that area below my waist doens't seem to be changing. I have had to children and been overweight my whole life.

Any exercise ideas would be great!

MN Dieter .... Congrats on your weight loss so far and it's great that you've gotten the whole family in on the exercise band wagon...

The area below your waist you are speaking of will eventually go down as you progress with your weight loss, although because it is you're weakest spot, so to speak, it will probably be the last to go. My weakest spots are my "back" butt and thighs areas.... I constantly have to work at keeping those areas down with running and heavy weight training PLUS super clean and low fat eating, no junk or processed foods.

Don't give up, you will conquer this weight loss battle ... Keep us posted on your progress....
