I cannot *spot reduce* but can I *spot stay*?

Sunday, March 01, 2009

I cannot *spot reduce* but can I *spot stay* the damages?

I am trying *desperately* to maintain the level of flabbiness I am seeing on my inner thighs and upper arms! So far I am winning the battle, lol.

What I would really love is to lose the battle and lose the flabbiness.

I am doing Triceps Kickbacks and Inner Thigh exercises - I am using a ThighMaster and feeling a little foolish, lol.

So, at least if I am not winning the battle over the loose skin, it isn't getting worse.

Perhaps by exercising my trouble spots I am keeping the muscle there so that when my body chooses to take energy from these areas it will take the flab instead of more of the muscle?

Sounds logical but it is as yet unproven.

Stay tuned for the future me to enlighten!

On a lighter note my loving DH has informed me that gravity is taking effect in my ripe old age of 57!

Another "hug him or slap him" moment!

    Are we married to the same man???

    If you know a technique to tone up the "lower part" of the arm, I'm all ears!

    -I was showing off my little muscles I gained on the top of my arm when my husband shaked my "below part" of my arm to make me notice the gravity effect of my 40! emoticon

    ha yeah don't they always say the right things?

    From what I've read there's no way to spot reduce, just continue to burn fat and hope that eventually your body takes from those areas and continue to strength train to build muscle.

    Don't feel foolish about using a thigh master, Suzanne Somers eat your heart out!

    Slap him first and then hug him. LOL But since he just got home you might want to save it for another day.
    I still want to win the lottery so I can have "smart lipo" to finish what dieting cannot. It's never gonna happen so it means more hard work. Yuck! LOL

    Hugs
