Where the weight comes off...

Sunday, February 03, 2013

One thing I've noticed about losing weight is that you can't control where the weight comes off from. Sometimes its from the arms and legs, sometimes it's from the stomach. For me, it comes off my upper belly area right below my chest. It's frustrating because now I look like a have very defined curve but in reality I still have fat tires going around my lower stomach.

If anyone had discovered a way to make the weight loss more proportional, please share! I would love to know.

I have also come to the resolution of eating small portions from now on. They say that if you gradually eat smaller portions you can "shrink your appetite" and you can keep your metabolism up, burning more calories. So I'm going to work on the whole "6 small meals a day" idea along with finding some lower stomach exercises...

What have you been working on recently?

    I'm having the same problem, I've lost 20 lbs so far but mostly under my chest and like you looks like I have spare tire hopefully it will start getting smaller

    I have had success with the 17-Day Diet. I lost six pounds in the first seven days. I am actually doing a hybrid of the 17-Day Diet which is seven days on the diet and then seven days off and then seven days back on again. During diet weeks I have lost anywhere from five to seven pounds. Try it and see what you think.
