Thank you everyone for the laugh. Its called fat and flab and I think I will name mine Flat to combine the two words. Maybe it will become confused and do just that. I have been doing more reverse crunches and just sitting and sucking it in while I drive. Anything to try and tone it a little all day is a good thing. Hopefully with weight loss, our 'friends' will go away!!

I have one, too. I call it The Egg, since it's round and egg-shaped and kind of white when I look down at it.

I suspect that like all the fat in my body, it will go away in its own time, on its own schedule. So I'm just sticking with my program and hoping that The Egg is scheduled for destruction soon!

LMAO....I've never thought of naming mine...I guess I'm lucky though as mine is getting smaller as I lose weight...I know mine is from pregnancy...even though it was 12 years ago...lol...I never had it before that...I was 400lbs when I was pregnant so I guess that was the only place for it to go...I only gained 10lbs though and my son was 9lbs2ozs...so maybe it wasn't totally from the pregnancy...lol.
Hopefully someone will come up with a magical cure emoticon emoticon

LINEY223 - ROTFL! I've often wished, when running, that the jostling and jiggling of my fat would make it disappear! Never thought of it heading south to my knees and ankles. That's priceless!

I've got a pet pooch above my bellybutton. I'm thinking of name it Eunice, so at least I have an enemy to batttle and try to evict.

It's maddening. It's not hard, though. It's just...... wiggly and there, always lurking. I've shrunk around my rib area (I actually have ribs! Who knew!??!) and my gut flap/apron/thingy has shrunk as well, but Eunice appears to be stubborn and refuses to go anywhere. Dangit!

At least we're not alone in our excess tummy issues!

I find this such an annoying bit of my body! My waist itself it getting slimmer but my tummy area is still about 2 sizes bigger so all the waist bands of my skirts etc are too big or they are tight over the wobbly tum!

I think it's just about losing weight all over and then trying to tighten up my abs generally.

no idea really!

If the jumping up and down to shift it lower worked, I'd be skinny but with huge fat flabby ankles and feet . Ha ha

I've often wondered if jumping up and down would shift it south. emoticon

I have that problem too. I've been overweight most of my life and it's always been there. I have NO idea how to shrink it...wish I did...lol. The only think I know of is to keep doing ab exercises and losing weight in general. If I find a magic cure, I'll let you know! :-)

I have the SAME problem and I hate it. I thought it was just me.

I work a sit down job and have always had a tendency to wear my pants a little too tight in the waist, so I think that might be my problem. It's gross to think about, but I think I may have shifted some of my organs. (I've had a couple of recent surgeries and both surgeons stated my anatomy was "challenging". Hmmmm.) It could also be a hernia, which is common in obese people.

If you know how to get rid of it, please let me know!

Does anyone else have this problem - where your upper stomach (above your waist line/belly button) is larger than your lower stomach?

Mine is noticeably larger and at times very solid/hard to the touch whereas my lower tummy is soft and flabby.

Any ideas on what causes this, how to target this area and help shrink it?

I'm tired of looking like I am preggers! (And I never looked like this when I actually was preggers...go figure.)

HELP!!
