  • womens advice in particular needed

    I've now lost around 80lb and don't have much more to go. I'm aiming at around 130- 140lb; i'm 5'8.5" . legs, bum,tummy are all looking pretty good, arms shoulders and back are getting there-quite quickly actually and I'm generally looking pretty slim.
    But my boobs have hardly changed; 38f presently on the last hook (was on the first) but no space in the cups at all.
    To be honest I think I look ridiculous with these! I was looking at that Barbie thread earlier and its really depressed me. I don't want to look like that
    are the boobs eventually going to go smaller-and can I do anything to target that area to quicken it up?
    Any advice gratefully received - I really don't want to look like some 50 year old porno freak who has had a boob job!

    Hey

    Can't help but I don't seem to loose off mine much either - they're not that big (D or DD). I'm just starting on the Primal journey so it's too early for me to make suggestions, but will be keen to see what others say.

    Current Weight - 150lbs
    Goal Weight - 130lbs

      I don't think anyone can say for sure. It all depends on how your body prefers to store fat.
      I'd imagine they'd eventually get smaller though, as the rest of the weight comes off. I don't think you can target them, since you can't target areas for fat burn.
      If you don't mind me asking, how much more weight do you have to go?

        They may shrink a bit as you lose your last few pounds. And depending how long you have been Primal (and focusing on a nutrient-dense diet) your hormones may balance out even more given enough time and that could help.

        Remember that fat tissue is a great source of estrogen, so you may be glad to have the "ladies" post-menopausally.

          I'm 157 now, I'd set my target at 140 but I think 130 is achievable so 27lbs need to go.

            I think if you lose 27 more lbs, you should definitely see some reduction in breast size, especially since you said everything else has already slimmed down.
            I forgot to say: amaaazing job on losing 80lbs, by the way.

              If you go that route you won't look like a porn freak Usually it's implants that give you that hard, bolted-on boob look. Reductions and/or lifts have a much nicer, more natural appearance. If it would make you happy and you can afford it, keep it in the back of your mind for when you're done. I have two relatives who have had reductions (both in their 50s) and both are over the moon about it for so many reasons.

              I have no idea if your breasts are ever going to get smaller. I didn't expect mine to and they did so anything is possible.

                Try swimming, particulary front kroll and breast stroke. While it is true that it is impossible to predict the fat distribution, stimulating blood flow to the area, and continous resistance may help. Plus, you will not have to restrict or jiggle/stretch as with the rest of cardio.

                      Some people do not lose much breast tissue during fat loss. Some of it is just genetics.

                      I don't know what your activity levels are like, but working on muscle building in the upper body may change how they look. For smaller breasts (like mine), it can help them look a little bigger or perkier. I don't know what it would do for larger breasts, however.

                      I do want to say that at your height, you would likely be VERY slender (possibly too slender) at 130 lbs. If you're not looking for much muscle mass (even just lean muscle mass), it's probably possible, but it doesn't seem that healthy to me.

                        I'm hoping to see the same here, and even slightly more ridiculous at 34H! They are not getting any smaller as I'm losing so far either. I think I only have another 15lbs to go, although perhaps more.

                        140lbs at 5'8.5" sounds underweight to me. My DH is 5'8", 135 and obviously no boobs and I think he's too skinny. Great job on losing a bunch of weight already, but don't hold yourself to some randomly set number and be sure to focus on true health.

                          my consultants guidelines were to get towards the bottom of my BMI. it calculates 126 as the lowest. what should i guess is low enough?

                            I'm not going to be helpful in this because I am not weighing anymore. I'm more concerned about fitness. I believe the user Kakes is your height and around 150 lbs (recently posted photos in the Before & After thread). BMI is a pretty useless measurement, too.
