    Hi everyone im new to webmd... but ive been following this topic for about a week.. and i would just like to add to this... i believe that u really dont have any control over where u lose weight or where it comes off at... 5 yrs ago 1 was almost 200 lbs at 5feet 2 inches this was not a good look for me... so i made up my mind to loose weight so i ate healthy and excercised reguarly... and im happy to say i dropped down to about 130 lbs.. but the first thing to go was my belly and my breast shrunk i dropped down like 2 cup sizes... but what im still struggling with is my hips and thighs those for me have been the hardest to lose... so i really think it all goes back to gentics.. i feel this way because when i look at my mom she has big hips and thighs as well...

    Good for you!!

    Oh my goodness!! Do I wish I could drop a couple of cup sizes. They won't go anywhere. ha ha

    I went from C to DD during pregnancy 13 years ago!!!

    Genetics...gotta love it.
    feduptwice replied to 2luvtwins's response:
    absolutely genetics-as i mention my butt,arms and legs lost the fat first,belly as it was, and as for cup size-went from C to DD and it isn't going away so far, which sucks because bras are expensive!
    pallzy replied to feduptwice's response:
    Mine definitely came of the rib cage/chest area, hips, butt and legs first. Still working on the belly. But, that is where I carried the majority of my weight, so I just kind of figure it's taking longer cause it had further to go.
    2luvtwins replied to feduptwice's response:
    Not only expensive, but to find one thats comfortable and will hold you appropriatley. And sports bra's....I have to wear two when I run!!!!!!

    I'm just longing for that size C again. :{

    If they ever go "down" let me know your secret...please.

    ha ha I will, and dont get me started on sports bras! i actually went to "jockeys for her" and got nice maternity bra that fits nice,thight and snug, adjustable wide straps. I just could not find sports one to do the same.

    Try Enell sports bras . They may well be the best for support that you will find.
    2luvtwins replied to Rich Weil, MEd, CDE's response:
    Thanks, I will try that site. I guess they are expensive?? I can't get on that site right now, I'm at work.
    2luvtwins replied to feduptwice's response:
    The straps dont hurt or cut into your shoulders?
    feduptwice replied to 2luvtwins's response:
    no they dont, and i use them all the time when i exercise

    I hear this (not on the chest size, I long for MORE!) I know you cant decide where the weight will come off, even if you try to target certain areas, I have been losing and it seems to be going from top to bottom, I have lost a lot around the ribs and it has slowly been moving down to my abdomen and back chub. cant wait for the day when my hips and thighs start shrinking!
    12 pounds down, 9 to go!
