Losing from breasts

Postby Metalcharm » Thu Dec 09, 2010 9:20 am

About four months ago I started at 96kg and am now down to 73 and am feeling really good about it all. I have lost weight from all over and am seeing some muscle definition ... except my breasts. :shock: I've always had big boobs but now that I am smaller and the boobs aren't I think I'm starting to look a bit out of proportion. So will it eventually come off from that area .. should I work a bit harder on it (please suggest exercises!!) or do I just have to wait and see??
Predictably my other hald isn't unhappy about this. :lol:

Apparently arm exercises from what I hear but I'm not too sure, but lucky you (from my point of view atm)! Hahah, I've already started losing weight in my boobs and I'm not so happy about that, seeing as they weren't so big at the start. I still need to lose 20 odd kilos so I'm hoping they won't get too smaller :(

As I understand it you can't really do anything to lose weight from specific areas. I'm in the same boat as you being rather too well endowed for my own comfort. I think it's pretty much a case of just keep going, get to your goal weight and fitness and see how it turns out.
Predictably my other half is not unhappy with it either.

You can't spot reduce :x wish you could though. Your body will cooperate soon enough and you'll start loosing from there.

I can confirm that eventually you will start losing from that area too. I am starting to lose my man-boobs for which I am grateful (no more black eyes :lol: ) Just keep up the healthy lifestyle, and the body will naturally get to its intended shape.

While you can choose where the weight will come off, you can use weights to help tighten certain areas so that may help. Bench press, wide arm pushups and dumbell flys are a few suggestions. Wish I had your problem lol.

I have lost 25 kilos and I used to have DD breasts. I'm about a B now, but I have also found I have a bit of sagging in that area now! I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry to lose weight from your chest! I'm hoping after I do a few more weights, they will tone up! :)

Are you lifting weights?

It's important you lift weights to maintain muscle mass whilst on a diet.

Try performing some chest based exercises like dips, DB bench presses.

Let me know how this goes.

wish I had that problem, when I lose weight it all goes from that area and I have to juggle the 'boy figure' versus the curvier, bummier me!
Sigh, if only you could donate!

Just keep going. For some people it's their thighs, others their backside and others their belly that go last. We all lose weight in different places at different times.

Some upper body exercises like push ups will help to tone the area however the key is to stay focused, continue to watch your diet and keep moving and the extra few kgs will eventually come off :D

For me my boobs went first, and my tummy (problem area) went last! Keep working at it, you can't spot reduce but you can shrink them just by keeping going!

I also have the opposite problem. I lost a lot from my boobs, which in itself is not a bad thing, I am quite happy with the size I am now but they are now quite saggy due to the fat loss and no amount of weight lifting is going to put enough muscle in that area to combat that.

It is now the only part of me that I am unhappy with after losing 30kgs and would consider getting surgery to fix it.
