slomotion :   lovelydd2016 :   SmartCookie1 :  Yep, that’s me 🙂 I don’t walk around like that all the time, just when I’m competing. Normally I have a bit of fluff around the midsection (gotta keep my abs warm😜) and my butt isn’t as perky lol. I eat lots of lean protein (chicken breast, turkey, sirloin) greens, and rice. I eat six meals daily, once every three hours. And drink a gallon of water every day.

Don’t stress about it. Set yourself a goal: be healthy and workout 3/4  times a week. If you want to lose weight, you can’t really target a specific spot. You will lose your weight gradually all over your body where there’s fat. Do some toning excercices. There’s ALWAYS hope. Get into a healthy lifestyle and at some point you will be satisfied with all of your parts of the body, I’m sure!

I started doing les mills body cmobat and body pump at home ont heir 60 day programmes. Really worked for me and now I cut the workouts down to 4 times a week just to maintain where i’m at. That said I’ve put on 5lbs recently out of utter laziness and just generally being tired at a ne wjob so time to get back on it again. 

this was me at the begining, after 60 days of body combat and then 60 days of combat and body pump together:

Like other pp, I think you’re being way harsh on yourself. Like we all do lol. My first thought at your picture was “dang, look at that little waist!” You’ve got a great shape! If you’re uncomfortable, then work on what you’re eating and get some workouts in. Weightlifting or circuit training classes will build those muscles up. Different people gain weight in different areas… I gain in my arms/back too. Especially that fleshy area the sticks out over the top of my bra. But it will definitely come off if you work at it! Good luck bee. Remember that it’s your body and you can change it, but that you’re beautiful now!

MrsSMFC :  Wow that is incredible!
Would you say it is mostly diet to make this incredible change? I don’t want to go quite that far and do competitions but I’d really like to tone up. I’ve hit a wall lately and can’t seem to get around it. I’m just finishing the Dymatized Transformed program off Bodybuilding.com and I don’t know where to turn from there.

You are too hard on yourself! life is long and we go through many changes and need to be gentle with our bodies, we will rely on them for many years. My tips:

1. Never diet, eat what you want but 50% of the amount you would normally eat. You can always have more tomorrow.

2. Find an activity you love and do it regularly.

3. Sweat every day.

4. Savour every taste, sometimes a taste is enough.

5. Watch the booze.

6. Accept what cannot be changed.

7. If you over indulge don’t keep going, acknowledge  the transgression and start again.

These few guidelines have kept me relatively happy with my figure over the years. Being happy shines through.
