  • Grrr belly fat and boobs!

    I am almost 27 years old and have ALWAYS been dealing with belly fat and large breasts. (well the breasts came later of course). I really want these 2 things to minimize! I want my belly flat and my chest...well flatter but not FLAT of course! I'm wondering if belly fat getting softer and more jiggly is a good sign. I hate to say that my fat is more jiggly but it is. Is this good or bad??? I've tried measuring to see inches lost but it's just not really working out for me. I've lost 15 lbs total. I want to lose 25-30 more. I have had back pain since 7th grade and I really do believe it is because I have a large chest. What do you think??

    Before my weight loss I was a DDD, and I had horrible back pain. I'm now down to a C and there's no pain at all. Granted, the right bra does help, but it's definitely easier to get a better bra the smaller you are.

      Your back pain is probably posture related.

        I have always found that when the fat gets squishy you will wake up in a few days appearing leaner. It's like it is transforming and it takes a few days for it to finish. Lyle McDonald's article that Autumnrose posted pretty much says the same thing.
        And while the back pain might be posture related, the posture is affected by having large amounts of weight on your chest. Sort of a chicken and egg scenario. I have a friend that had breast reduction surgery (much to the chagrin of my immature male friends) and she feels much better, and dare I say she *looks* a helluva lot better too. More proportioned.

          I wonder if strengthening the muscles would have help?

            I am sure it would, as it couldn't hurt. However, depending on the size/weight of the breasts you might not be able to win that battle. My friend that I spoke about is 5'2" and had size 60(something) I cups. I would bet they weighed somewhere in the 30 lbs (each) vicinity. Definitely not healthy. She could have exercised until she was stronger than a silverback gorilla and it wouldn't have made a difference. LOL.

              It's a combination or both. Posture will help as well as strengthening the muscles. I recall a video on youtube with a well endowed porn star named Daphne Rosen who had no back issues and asserted it was due to how she carried herself, keeping her shoulders back and not slouching.

              I'd link it, but I'm not going to look for it while at work :P

                I had a rather large chest and it has gotten way smaller. Get a good bra. Most stores depending on where you're from have bra fitting experts. I was very pleased when I broke down and had someone help me find the fight fit.
                Good luck!!
                Had no idea I was so weak till I started walking in October. Could barely make it around the block!

                  As I've been losing weight, I've been having fewer back problems - I'm sporting a fairly large set of boobs as well. The last couple of days, my back has been super painful in the same places I had problems before. I've realized that the last couple of days I've been wearing a bra that doesn't provide very good support, its a loose sports bra like I always wore before I broke down and bought ones that fit. I'm going to guess that as soon as I throw this out and make sure I wear a good bra, my back will feel better.

                    Threads about titties going away are depressing. FWIW, there is indeed a "Primal Breasts" thread out there.....just saying.

                        FWIW I like big jiggly boobs too. But then again I like small perky ones too. I guess I'm trying to say, and I think I speak for all men, HOORAY FOR BOOBS OF ALL KINDS!

                          I concur. Not that I would run past Paleobird's stunning posterior to get to some titties....I'm thinking more along the lines of scooping her up on my shoulder and carrying her over to them. Yep.

                            I don't know about squishy fat... except for i have it to and figure its just part of the process.

                            I do know about big boobs - buy a good bra. Expect to spend between 30-50 dollars on a good bra. Go to a department store (dillards etc) and ask to be fitted. If you like the thinner fabric instead of the molded stuff tell them, also if you have a price point tell them that too. They will measure you. Then go wait by the door for the fititng room. They will come in the fitting room with you; adjust the bra for you and get different sizes if you need them.

                            I cried and hugged the attendant the first time I did this. No boob poking out the sides, no falling out, no over abundance of cleavage, no back pain, no pain on my shoulders. It was really just amazing. And now that is all I wear.

                            What you will probably find is that you end up with a smaller band size and a larger cup size. That seems to be what happens with most people.

                            I would also avoid places like vs and other boutiques for bra fittings, they generally are going to be having young girls working there who don't have problems with large boobs and who will measure you either incorrectly or not know how to adjust for a proper fit. Just my experience.

                              Thank you Gator Baby. But I'm 5'10". I don't "scoop up" too easily. Besides, how do you know that my posterior is the only stunning side of me? Hmm?
