LETS HANG OUT AND FUCK SHIT UP
Good god I miss you
You and I and Lucy schmucy
It is more exciting to me than Xmas
So, my butt is grossly uneven. I mean one cheek is almost an inch lower than the other. It's my non dominant leg too which baffles me. No spot reduction will help this, but short of a single sided butt lift, what on earth can I do to tone my butt to be a cute booty rather than 50% cute and 50% WTF? To me, squatting etc. seems to be odd as I want to continue toning the other one, or should I wait for my little cheek to shrink up before I bilaterally train? Thanks :)
I have had this message sitting here for ages and haven’t answered and i’m sorry about that, but as some of you will know I don’t like answering things when I don’t feel like I can give a good answer. I’ve thought about this one a lot, but I still don’t think I have an extremely helpful answer.
If it were me in this situation, I think I would train bilaterally. I.e. train how I train now - focusing on compound movements.
I think the real issue though, is why? Is it a muscle thing? Is one muscle atrophied, or is one overdeveloped? (in which case, training one side specifically would make more sense). Or is it a fat distribution problem, where for some reason your body is storing more fat in one place? (in which case I’d say the solution would be to try and lean out and see if it changes things). Or is it a skeletal issue, where your bone structure is actually causing one side to sit higher? (I would explore this even if you don’t think it’s likely - see your GP or a chiro or some other kind of interested party, perhaps get an x-ray). I know I have slight scoliosis and lordosis and this makes my back fat sit differently - so, when I bend backwards and make myself have “back rolls”, one side sits much higher than the other. When I was larger I had back rolls without bending backwards, and one side always sat higher.
Perhaps a combination of those 3 things could help? I would definitely seek the opinion of some kind of health professional though, if for no other reason than for interests sake.
Just so you know, booty is magical regardless of symmetry. Keep on doin you gurl.
Girl, you are looking amazing! Might be too personal but what size clothes were you and what are you fitting into now? For me the lower sizes were an awesome indication of how much I was losing :)
Thank yooooou darlin
The biggest size item of clothing I had was a UK26 (so US22). However, it was too big for me (I bought it online) but I just wore it anyway. I think the biggest size I actually was would have been a UK22 (US18).
The clothes I have bought lately are all UK14 (US10).
I feel like there’s an interesting shift happening in clothing. One, I think clothes are getting bigger in general. I highly doubt the UK14 I fit is a true UK14. Two, I have noticed clothing is getting more tailored to an apple shape, especially in sizes that are UK14+, to accommodate for the increasing number of people with disproportionately large amounts of abdominal fat. It’s more common to be overweight and obese in the midsection.
This is super frustrating for a pear like me. I find it really hard to get clothes because nothing is tailored for my shape. The industry view would simply be - Why cater to my body shape as a market segment when it’s uncommon, ya feel? I’m limited to certain styles of clothing so that things will fit right. Lifters everywhere know this problem because of quads and ass. I had this issue even when obese and unfit because I stored so much fat on my lower body, which is quite unusual. Now I’m smaller but still very much have disproportionately large legs compared to my waist and midsection. I do still have abdominal fat, obviously, but my build is that I’m quite narrow in the torso, even though I’m not that lean.
This was such a tangent… Ma baaaad.
Since I’m on a tangent though… Did you know, at my biggest, my shopping philosophy was actually so weird. It didn’t seem weird at the time but in retrospect it’s insane! I literally would buy anything that fit. Because in a mainstream shopping environment, I was definitely getting to that upper end stage where I was soon going to only be able to shop in specifically plus size stores/online. So if I found something in a store, in the biggest size, that was styled in a way that it might fit (say stretchy, or oversized style) then I would buy it. I didn’t even give much thought to if I liked it. That seems so bizarre to me now.
Haha why so many eyelash appointments? Which kinds do you get?
They’re closing over New Years and I just couldn’t bear the idea of not having my beautiful eyelashes so I literally spent probably 20minutes planning the best, most efficient way to book my appointments around their close down period so as to minimise the time I would have to spend without amazing eyelashes
I get 11-13mm mink eyelash extensions, 65-70 lashes per eye each visit
You can see this post for why I am so obsessed with having them
I just can’t rave enough. You wake up and feel amazing. It is literally just a constant confidence boost. I don’t really wear any makeup now at all unless there’s a special reason. I just feel collected and groomed all the time when I have them.
