I am 5’8 and about 2 months ago I was 63kg (138 pounds). I decided to lose some weight for the wedding and lost 4kg (8 pounds). Great, right? My favourite part is how toned my arms are and how toned my tummy looks. Worst part… my JLo bum and curvy hips are gone and I dont know how I feel about that. I know I dont look as good in my dress as I did when I was curvier (which is odd, most of the time weight loss makes you look better!) and I know FI doesnt like my smaller bum, but he likes my toned tummy and back.
What to do? The wedding is in 5 weeks so I have time to chuck on some weight… but I dont want it to go to my stomach! I really want my bum back though, it what makes me, me! Help!

@Bears-bub: i wish i could help you, but i have seriously never had this problem! even when i got down to 128 for my wedding, i never lost my chunky bum. i wish i had this problem, lol. The only thing i can think of would be to eat more, but keep up with toning exercsies for your stomach and arms?

10 Million Lunges. They’ll give you a nice round BIG bum. Especially if you do weighted lunges with 20lbs in each hands, etc.

@dynamic_duo: yep, I think that may be what I will need to do. No more squats and lunges! But I will keep up the stomach and arm exercises up. I dont want to be unhealthy, but I dont think I will be denying myself anything anymore… yay, lol

@Bears-bub: I feel you on this. I carry my wieght very well, and when I was 30 pounds heavier I was 40-32-44- Size 16 but nice and curvy.
Now I’m 36-32-35. I lost NONE of my tummy and all of my ASSests, both top and bottom :/ super sad.

I’m not sure there is much you can do about it since it’s genetics. I too gain weight in my mid-section and lose around my butt. It doesn’t bother me aesthetically so much as it makes me uncomfortable when I sit down and my butt bones poke into the chair. Some ladies naturally lose just around their middles. I hate them. 🙂 Oh, and I do tons of lunges and squats and weight train. It just makes my thighs look more toned. Never helps fill my butt in.

I used to have a big round bum, when I lost weight it went flat. I’ve been running and it’s started to get my shape back a little. I never thought I would miss it, but I really do :/

Gain muscle, make your glutes bigger! Do Squats, walking lunges, step ups, ect

You could try doing Brazil Butt Lift! =D

You need to do more leg and butt working out. Having good glute muscles makes your butt pop out.

I would put the weight back on, and just wear a super strong body shaper, actually. 🙂 Just hope it goes back in the right place!

Just to help your dress, I might actually consider one of those butt insert things… I seriously would never recommend them otherwise, but maybe you could just put the silicone pads into your shapewear for the day? I would post a picture, but I have a feeling that googling “silicone butt pads” at work could lead to some unfortunate consequences.

What about wearing those butt implant pants?
