Post I want to work out, but I don't want to lose my breasts and butt so I don't.

I'm a 38DD, and I have a pretty nicely filled out behind. My thighs are a little bigger than I'd like, and I have a little bit of a bulgy tummy. Other than that I like my body just fine. I know I can't spot-reduce; does anyone have anything that's gotten close?

Thanks in advance!

In this case, you should lose whatever fat you need to lose and then build muscles in your breast and butt area.

In other words, eat food that helps keep the good fat in. By all means, do the normal way of dieting but eat certain foods like specialists.

Foods that help developing certain areas:
-bananas: the best in breast development because of a certain vitamins but no one can keep an all banana eating diet can they?
-good oil/nuts: nuts are the answer because of proteins

Unfortunately genetics are what will determine where you'll lose fat first and where it will want to stay.

You won't know until you try.

Squats are great for your butt! You can do it with no weights, or with weights, and there's lots of different variations. You will lose a little bit in size on your tushy, but you will be able to keep the lift and shape since the butt muscles will be toned

As for your boobs, that one is a little bit harder they are composed of fat and mammary glands with the muscle located behind the breasts. When you lose weight, you lose it from all over not just one spot. Thus you can't spot reduce with fat, nor can you avoid certain spots either.

Agree with all of the above posters, genetics does kind of play a factor here and there are certain things you can do training wise to keep a shapely figure. When I train women, I like to do a fair amount of squats both traditional and sumo style.

When doing regular squats remember to spread your feet about shoulder width apart and drop your butt down like your going to sit in a chair. Go til your about parallel then come back up. This will train the front of your legs and ties a little into the hips for stability reasons.

For sumo style, brace yourself on a chair for balance, then spread your legs out as far as comfortable , toes pointed away from you. Yet again dropping your butt back and down 1st, this will train the inner thigh and you should feel it in the butt as well.

As for the breast issue there may be some loss but it should not be drastic but this does depend on the person. But building some muscle behind it from push ups etc it should not be too noticeable and just decide as the weeks go by what difference in size.

Last time I lost a lot of weight, I went from about 185 lb to 155 lb, and I lost one cup size. I went from a 36DD to a 36D. That's with thirty pounds of weight lost altogether.

I'll see what happens this summer, I'm currently about 200 lb and a 38DD. If I bike I'll likely lose a bunch of it again.

But yeah, it all depends on whether you're genetically programmed to lose/gain fat in your bust. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I don't lose a whole lot from there.

Try walking. I love my bust and back side large. The human body is made for walking, not running like horses are. Get out and walk about an hour every day (unless you've had an extremely busy or strenuous day, in which case, don't push it). I've lost 7 lbs in the last 3 weeks and it's all been where i want it to go. walking tones the muscles in your calves, legs and thighs. It also will affect your glutes but it will only shape it to be a nicer butt, instead of a shapeless mass (we all have that problem). my sides are slimming too- goodbye lovehandles! and my stomach is slowly getting flatter. (the stomach will probably take the longest and be the hardest to get rid of so be patient). also, try finding some arm workouts. slimmer arms give the illusion of a slimmer body overall. it's true! so far, i have retained my hourglass figure that i love and my thighs, calves, arms and waist have never been slimmer.
So, to recap: go walking regularly, and slim those arms!

PS, maddragon710 you have a beautiful face!

don't forget too that as you age those are the first parts to droop if they're not toned. I second walking, good overall fat burning and lower body toning. you can do some light weights to firm up the upper body as you go so the loss of fat in the chest area won't be as noticeable. fat sits overtop of muscle, if you build up the muscle underneath you shouldn't see too much difference, just more firmness/perkiness which is a bonus. just do lifts and stretches that focus on the pec muscles.. but don't overdo it. core building is always a good idea for your overall health and look, so you can do some situps/crunches and leg raises too so that when the bellyfat does go down you'll have yummy abs to take its place.

to help with the belly try reducing how much sugar and unhealthy carbs you take in (I don't agree with low-carb/no-carb fad diets, you NEED carbs, but be cautious of where you're getting them from) anything you eat that's white (bread, rice, etc) switch to brown. no sodas or other sugary drinks, stick with water. i have a hard time drinking enough water myself, but you can add things to it to flavour it and make it more appealing (and healthy) like cucumber and lemon which are great diuretics to help reduce the belly even quicker (a lot of belly issues often come down to water retention) or you can make some unsweetened flavoured iced teas. pick whatever teas you like, steep enough to fill a pitcher and keep it in the fridge

I was also quite worried about this (I'm a 36 DDD and quite happy with my boobs) when I decided to lose my little belly pouch thing, but my boobs haven't shrunk (I actually think I may have to go up a cup size in the near future). I've lost weight, just not there.

I don't know if it's how I exercised or if my boobs are just stubborn, but for the record, I just did biking and walking.

I have this problem too, I have a large behind and am a 32 DD, two assets of mine I would like to keep. but my thighs are a bit too large for my liking. I have lost 8 pounds this week by eating a balanced diet and doing squats and crunches. My shorts are getting loose around my thighs, but my chest hasn't shrunk at all (yay) ^_^
