losing everywhere but my stomach!!!

Recommended Posts

I'm slowly losing. My legs, arms, back, bottom are all slowly shrinking. I'm starting to look like I'm wearing clown pants, baggy everywhere. EXCEPT my stomach. My jeans all fit the exact same, even a little tight. Anyone else having this problem? Any ideas on how to get the stubborn rolls on the belly to shrink up a lil? lol

my belly is my problem area too, every night when i sit down on the edge of my bed i make myself do 50 sit ups before i lay down to go to sleep and i have started to notice a difference i have lost 3 inches in my waist so far...i also try to do movements that involve stomach muscles if i dance to a song on the radio...its hard for us to tell at first because we look at ourselves everyday, mine seems to look like its having a melting affect lol with gravity pulling it down..im hope soon that it melts right off lol....

When my surgeon first examined me, he told me I would lose weight first around my abdomen, and that it would take longer to lose in my thighs and breasts. So far, I'm noticing the same thing you mentioned -- my pants are looser around my rear end and my thighs, but the waist bands are just as tight as ever. But, my surgery was 3 weeks ago tomorrow and I've been assuming my stomach is still swolen.

I'm going to start doing crunches soon.... which I hate... but I think they're a necessary evil. My doctor said I can start doing them whenever I feel like it (I read somewhere on here that someone's doctor told them no abdominal exercises for 3 months, but my doctor told me he has no restrictions on exercise unless it hurts -- "let pain be your guide, if it hurts, don't do it"). Problem is, I just don't feel like doing them yet! And I think that's because I'm still having some port pain, rather than it being an excuse for not doing them!

Thank you for bringing this up as I thought it was just me. I am only 2 weeks post op but my stomach doesn't seem to be budging. I'm losing mostly in my upper body where I can't afford to decrease in breast size :confused: (TMI?). This makes me feel a lot better to know I am not alone with this.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
