Me & my girlfriend's belly fat

Postby JohnClay » Sat Oct 04, 2008 7:56 pm

Hi, my girlfriend said it was ok to put her image on the internet though I didn't specifically ask her if I could put her picture on these forums. I hope it's ok with you all.

I'm 183cm (6") and had been 70kg in my early to mid 20's then due to some medication went past 90kg in about 6 weeks and am currently about 82 kg.
She is 176cm (5"9') and used to be skinny as a girl but is now about 70 something kg.

I've read a little stuff on the internet about cortisol, stress and belly fat. I've also read that you can't just target fat by doing exercises like sit-ups/crunches.

I'm wondering why this girl doesn't have big hips, thighs or butt... just a big belly. She hasn't told me that she is pregnant or something worse. (so I don't think she is)
For me I've got a belly and man-boobs though loose clothing hides it.
In the first pic, her belly is quite noticeable.

In the second pic, taken a week later, she has thin legs

Sorry if I seem so insensitive about this.... but she has said a few times that she is concerned about her weight (even though it isn't extreme) and wants to do something such as eat less, walk, and situps...

Hi Some people just tend to accumulate fat in one body part and not in the other. There's nothing strange about it. It's just genetics.

BTW, I found this:

I think my girlfriend has a "goblet" body type.
