Oh, my midsection! I have the typical diabetic lots-of-lard midsection, which makes me look like a rubber ball with legs and also: "Fat cells in your belly are different from those on your hips. The blood that flows from belly fat goes directly to your liver, whereas the blood that flows from your hips goes into your general circulation. The livers of those who store fat in their bellies are blocked from removing insulin by the extra fat and therefore do not remove insulin from the bloodstream as effectively as the livers of people who store fat primarily in their hips. People who store fat primarily in their bellies have higher blood insulin and sugar levels, which raise levels of the bad LDL cholesterol that causes heart attacks, and lower levels of the good HDL cholesterol that prevents heart attacks."
I would give anything if the Good Fat Fairy
would come by in the middle of the night and POOF! no more belly fat!

The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it's the same problem you had last year.
