Excuse me, may I please borrow some booty?

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

As most of my Spark friends know and have heard me complain, I have no butt. I know, I know, I shouldn't complain, but why oh why can't I just keep the lil bit I got? Trust me, I've heard it all, "Girl, you must have been taking those noacetol pills." (No-ASS-at-all) "It's a good thing you have hips because you would look just pitiful!" Yeah, I know. "Maybe you should stick with A-lined skirts." I like jeans. "Have you considered getting that Brazilian butt lift?" I'm anti-surgery for cosmetic reasons; not to mention I don't have that kind of money to be blowing on booty implants when there are way to many stilletos that need good homes! Did I mention I love shoes?

I've tried various exercises to tighten and firm, lift and sculpt - butt (pun intended) trust me, there is NO amount of firming, lifting or sculpting something that is just NOT there! As much as I'm enjoying many of the oddities that comes with weight loss (armpit shrinkage, collarbones) the disappearing act that is happening to my derriere and other valuable assests is beginning to pose quite a little problem.

You see...it looks like I've shat my pants. See examples in white jeans below.

(Bridal dress fitting in March - the dress has come in and it way too big all-over, plus it was fitted for someone who must play for the LA Lakers! I'm somewhat tall, but dang, do I appear to be 7 foot 3?


I'm finding unless I wear my pants like I applied them with a paint roller, it looks like I have (DPS) Droopy Pants Syndrome. Now, I've been wanting to get back into my skinty jeans for as long as I can remember. (I told yall about my skinty jeans right?)

See example below.


Here's how they fit a few months ago: (Um, you may not want to be eating your meal while viewing these...ya may lose your lunch...just sayin'.)

I wasn't even able to close them!



After a couple months of hard work, I got them closed! (Yay!) But it wasn't pretty! That poor button is holding on for dear life!



After one MORE month, I was able to not look completely horrendous in them... no muffin top!




So, anyway back to my point.

Wait, do I have a point? (Sorry, ADD kicked in) Oh yes. Do my fellow Sparkers know how those pants with the built in booty work? I was wondering if I should invest in some built-in-badonk. Now, I don't wanna look like I belong in a Sir Mix-A-lot video (Baby Got Back) I do however want my back parts to match my upper parts. (I'm losing "the girls" but I had some to spare, so I'm really not complaining, just explaining.)



What would YOU do?

    I totally get the insecurity about a certain area of the body (whatever it may be for each person). I have several. lol Hoping my booty gets back up where it belongs--it seems to have migrated south from the extra weight. I'm counting on lots of donkey kicks and squats to get it back in proper booty country. emoticon Perhaps that would work for you. I suppose there's always steroids for your butt--you can pump it up! (Imagine that with the Hanz and Franz from SNL accent.) Haa! j/k

    First of all, you are stunning. Secondly, you don't need a big booty, rock what your mama gave you!

    I never, ever would have looked at your pictures and thought, "she has no butt." Seriously. You are gorgeous!

    I lost my boobs and I do mean all of them. Flat as a pancake. It bothers me and before losing weight, I would have frowned down on those people who have plastic surgery but now? I don't see it as a cosmetic procedure. I see it as mental. My lack of boobs affects my self-esteem. If it bothers you that much, do what you need to do to feel good about yourself.

    Everyone has something on his/her body that he/she doesn't like. I got the J-LO ass but absolutely no bust. Go figure. Want to trade?

    Girl you are rocking those jeans! You go girl!!! I'm also losing my boobies and I'm happy about that LOL I went from a 42DD to a 38D.

    As for your booty, that shouldn't be a concern. You are rocking curves and look hot!!!

    3) There is a white girl in Delaware with sister-esque booty to spare if ya wanna come and get some. Her name, I think, is Natalie. ;)

    I think you look fabulous. But I do understand about losing parts - I am currenly losing my butt and I am a little miffed about it (because I really liked my butt). Anyway......is there a store local to you that you can go and try on those type of jeans to see if you would even like wearing them. OH, and I have to competely agree on the shoes - one can never have too many pairs.

    I say, that you look great just the way you are... However there are exercises, like squats, that can help you build/sculpt a rounder derriere

    Here is information that may interest you:

    ... in the meantime... Clothing tip: Choose the right clothing. Shop carefully and find clothes, especially jeans, that are cut in such a way to emphasize your buttocks. Usually they contain spandex in the blend so that the denim "hugs" your butt, supporting it and emphasizing its distinction from the thighs. The waistline should be snug, and as low as it can go without creating a muffin top or showing a plumber's crack. You can also purchase undergarments that "shape" your butt (but that won't help much if you wear baggy jeans over them

    Keep up the good work... emoticon ~ Dee

    I share your pain. I am butt-less in Seattle. My saving grace has been low rider jeans. They sit on your hips and hit my derrière just right. Also, don't disregard donkey kicks. They give lift to your butt and with the low rider jeans it's a perfect combination. So give it a try and get your badonkiness on!

    I have a SUPER saggy butt, so it looks like I don't have a butt at all. I've found that wearing jeans with back pockets that stick out make my butt look perky :)
    You are looking FANTASTIC!

    Fantastic progress pics!
    If you really want, you can stick your butt out in pictures (in a sexy way of course!) but you look great anyways. Own what you got, cos it is fabulous!

    I would learn to accept my body and love it for what it is--saggy, dumpy, small or not so small. You are beautiful no matter what and nobody but yourself is thinking your booty is small! Love and accept yourself for who you are and the curves you've got! Flaunt it, work it, OWN IT! emoticon emoticon

    i think you look amazing, I'm like you have no butt, I have lots of breast so I try to accentuate what I have. I dont complain about my butt any more I try to use clothes that flatter my figure lol. the good this is that you have hips so that make the body look great...

    Read your blog....took it in....gotta say one thing:
    I would rather have a stunning front and a stunted rear than look like something from the Wild Kingdom. Think of the well-endowed animals...horses, donkeys, hippos...What do they all have in common? That's right! Jacked up teeth and a face for radio.
    You are headed through life face forward, not arse backwards. Get a BootyPop if you must but thank your Higher Power for giving you such a lovely face. (My 2 cents plus a half for inflation) emoticon

    Lol this was so funny and you are gorgeous! You look great in your jeans whether you feel like you suffer from a lack of badunk or not! The booty pop may make you feel better, although I don't know how it would feel to have on butt pads...-_- lol...great job on the jeans though girl! Skinty jeans always make a girl feel fabulous!

    Honest opinion?? I think that as the rest of you gets smaller, the badonk will look more proportioned and not "too small". Does that make sense?

    I'm not a fan of the built-in-booty type jeans...it just never looks quite real, ya know?? BUT..I do like the jeans with the extra support to lift and sculpt the boo-tay (Lee makes some and I think so does VS)...maybe try those??

    I would like to add, I am SO jealous of your problem. I'm over here doing all I can to get some hip and booty shrinkage!!! I love tha donk but...it's a bit much for my newfound slenderness! Also, I went from a DD cup to a small C. Uhm...Excuse me, may I please borrow some boobage?!?

    Furthermore...AMA
    ZING progress with the skinty jeans. Rock it girlfriend!

    First, give me a moment that say a prayer of thanks that I have never had such a conversation with myself.




    Thank you. I would do what will please you, reward you, make you feel wonderfuller. You look amazing. You have clearly worked very hard. If you need a little pat on the fanny in the presence of a fake fanny, give it a shot (as opposed to a shat).

    Have a great day.

You are soooooooo beautiful just the way you are and you have the girls!!!! They have taken great care of you so no worries....you're still looking fab in your clothes!!!

    Lunges 3 angles front right and left. If you have good knees walking lunges and back lunges.

    Squats of any kind, but Sumo are my fav bc they work the abductors too....and who can't use that (inner outer thighs)

    Dead lifts straight leg, go heavy.

    Good luck, your doing great on your journey emoticon

    I think you are beautiful! I have no butt, either. I do tons of squats and lunges with heavy weights and it's coming. It's slow going, but so is the weight loss.

    Google butt-building exercises! Good luck!

    Fab blog as always.... you keep me so interesting with your words hehe!! Awesome job on the jeans! Would you believe those changes?! Congratulations lady, that's one helluva achiement!

    And hmmm... i don't really know what i would suggest for the biggening the buttening. For me, i always had big bazooka boobs, but since my big weightloss, as my DH calls them, i am now left with pancakes - or 'fried eggs'. I'm kinda disappointed with that, but at the same time i am learning to love what i have. I am loving not having a bust too big to fit into the new size tops i am... i am loving how easier it is to support them...

    Looking at your side pics with the white jeans (i don't see no proof of shatting going on? =P) i think you look great and the butt looks fine! Not too big and not completely non-existent. Your waist comes in and your body follows out to your hips/butt. Can you learn to love this? You could just start to dip your back and walk with a creek to poke your butt out.... Oh sorry did you want healthy suggestions? emoticon emoticon xxoxx
