Hey there. So, I need suggestions. I am trying to tone up and slim down, not only for the wedding but also just to be healthy in general. I am counting calories, fat, and carbs, and eating healthy. I work out 5 days a week and do Zumba and/or a strength building/muscle toning routine. Granted I have only been at it for like a month and have slipped up a few times, but still. The only difference I have seen so far is in my stomach. I’m still working to get rid of the layer of fat blocking me from seeing my abs, but it is getting flatter and I have actually lost an inch in my waist. However, I really need to get rid of my hips/lovehandles, huge thighs and would even be thrilled to lose a bit in the bust area to be honest.
I know that these things take time and an totally willing to be patient and work my butt off (hopefully!), but does anyone have any suggestions on how to slim down? I have heard that you can’t target certain areas of the body for fat loss, but everything helps, right? Thanks in advance!

…I probably should have put this in “fitness”, huh?

I just started doing Power Fit and after two weeks I already see a difference, Last night was “core” night and today my stomach is a little flatter, jeans a little looser. It’s definitely a work out…brutal to some but you will get results. A lot of these types of places offer bridal boot camps with special rates.

I would love to lose some in the bust — most of my friends are like wah, wah, wah but seriously, wedding dresses are not made for girls with bigger busts (and mine aren’t even THAT big)/ribcages.

@MattandKristin: just keep doing what you’re doing. Working out & eating right. You can’t spot tone, unfortunately. Have you tried Crossfit? That is by far the best work out I have ever gotten. Also I find running really helps me slim down a lot.

@MattandKristin: For love handles you need to focus on your obliques. you can google oblique exercises and should find some easy exercises. As far as your hips go, I’m not sure of specific e exercises but I think lots of cardio should help.
