Ugh!  This is probably the most painful thing that frustrates me to death….people pestering me about my weight or making offhand slides about other peoples!  As long as you’re active and eat a nutritiously, I see nothing wrong so ignore those people who say things about you b/c they are the ones feeling self conscious and need to bring others down!

I just want you to know, I sympathize with you on many levels.  As an adult, I don’t think we need to be pestered about our appearance if we’re healthy.

I think you should embrace those lovely hips and I know there are beautiful bathing suits out there for your shape 🙂

I wish I knew the belly fat losing secrets. It seems to be the only place I gain weight and the hardest place to lose 🙁

You’re right, it’s very hard to conceal belly fat. I wish I could help, but I have the same problem.

My response would be, “Sir, do you need an optometrist? Because those glasses need checked!” or “Sir, do you need a home health aid? Because you’re really old.”

I probably wouldn’t say that…but I like to think I would.

@LadyJDAG – OMG that’s crazy!  Sometimes I can hardly believe the nerve of some older people!  Years ago I worked at a pharmacy and we had an older gentleman who would come in to pick up his medications – but he always walked through the store smoking a cigar!  And every time he was told that you couldn’t smoke in the building, but he did it anyways.  Do some older individuals think that rules/ social etiquette don’t apply to them?!?  Seriously.

I agree with Evabostonterrier, some just don’t think social etiquette applies but I do find that in all age groups.  I guess my response is harsh telling him he’s old.  I do like older people, usually they’re wise and fun to talk to, but wow, that’s a pretty terrible thing of him to say to you!

It’s normal and feminine to have some fat around the tum tum.  I can’t gain weight anywhere else to save my life!  I have accepted it but I also just picked the up the book Eat to Live and I’m going to be eating 90 percent unprocessed foods.  I think it will help.

Good luck!

i can totally relate – 90% of my weight is in my middle – no matter what i do it wont go away and i am very self concious about it since when i was younger i had a janet jackson-esque six pack. but that was back when i ate one meal a day of applesause crackers and tuna and ran 6-8 miles a day.

i try to embrace the pudge and reassure myself by saying i am healthy (i eat well, exercise, etc) but it still makes me feel bad – especially when my mother tells me i look fat.

nothing i have tried works either, so if you figure it out let me know and i will do the same!

i am completely the same. people are always telling me how thin my legs are, but ALL of my weight is in my belly. very, very annoying. i’ve been working out, eating right, etc, and the only weight i seem to be losing is from my chest, haha. i have a personal trainer who said not to get discouraged because belly fat is the last thing to go when you’re losing weight. but if you stick it out (dieting/working out) when it does come off, it’ll come off quickly. i’m still waiting!!

@lady – i’m sorry to hear! It must be so frustrating to see results (and to not be able to pinch an inch? jealous!) everywhere else. I gain weight right in my butt and upper thighs and even when i’m working out, they’ve still got some pinches. It’s frustrating, but just dress for your shape. Maybe wear belts to define your waist, or empire waisted tops or other things?

I am the exact same way!!! I am so glad that there are girls out there that feel the same.  My friends have always been tall bean poles & there I was the short, pudgy girl.  By no means am I fat, but I have lean muscle everywhere BUT my belly!! I work out constantly, (At the gym at least 5 times a week), do core & ab exercises, eat a well balanced diet. GRRRR soo annoying. 

 The only thing I have heard people say is that for some people’s blood type you are supposed to eat certain things.  I think the book was called “Eat Right For Your Blood Type”  I could be wrong on that title.  A girl I worked with read the book, started cutting things out & has lost a bit of weight from her midsection.  She encouraged me to read it but I would rather live with my middle tummy than have to get blood taken to find out what blood type I am.  I am deathly afraid of needles!!
