How can I whittle my waist?

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I've noticed something very disturbing that is bothering me right now. I looked at my measurements from when I began this journey and followed them thru to today. When I started, my weight was distributed all over my body and it was proportioned and then I lost a lot of weight. I was happy with my figure but then I started gaining back about 30 lbs. All of this weight I regained went straight to my waist! It didn't go back to what I was but instead gave me a man's beer belly.

Now as I've started to losing again, the belly isn't budging! Weight loss is again coming from all over the body EXCEPT the waist. This sucks!! Trying exercises to target the waistline isn't working either and I'm getting discouraged. Any ideas how to get this to move?

    Someone said we lose weight proportionately. So if your losing in other places the waist is coming in its turn. Sometimes exercises may help. I have concentrated on losing weight but have lost some muscle. Unfortunately we need to work on everything.

    I've notice it myself - every time I've gained weight in my life, I ended up shaped differently than I had the time before.

    I bet as you keep losing, that belly will shrink.
