Default Robochallenge September begins

Robochallenge: http://www.delorie.com/health/adslc/

311/152.8/145 month-start: 153.2 monthly-goal: 4 since: 01/12/2003

I'm dropping my goal from 150 to 145. The lower belly bulge and upper arm
fat have reduced by about 40% in just the last month. However, the lower
belly looks like it must be at least 5 pounds of fat. Unfortunately, the
body will probably still prioritize taking fat from other areas. I don't
want to lose fat from the rest of my body, but it seems to be the price I'll
have to pay to get the damn lower belly bulge off. My waist size is still
to large too. It is about 39 and should be 36.

Fat, as an organ, has a full vasculature and other supporting structures. I
have wondered if part of my problem is that what looks and feels like a
bulge of fat, may be largely a nest of blood vessels. Also, they say, that
once fat cells are created for obesity, that they do not go away. They only
reduce in size. Having once had a huge belly with about a 64 waist, it is
conceivable that I will be left with the extra fat cells taking up a few
inches because they have reached minimum cell size.

I'm going to try to take it off anyway.

Thanks for running this Cubit.
I dunno if you are a Stone Temple Pilots fan, but to paraphrase Weiland
in "Creep"
"you're half the man you used to be."
And that's gotta count for a lot when you're looking at three pant
sizes and 5 lbs of middle.
Good luck. If it can be done, I suspect you will do it.

Well, actually, it is Delorie that does the Robochallenge. I was just
reminding people about it, and posting my data.

I'm impressed.

I'm thinking though that you may have to go to 140 temporarily and
then ease back up to your goal while sculpting your body to fit your
ideal.

Cubit -

I vaguely recall seeing/hearing something similar about fat cells
after a diet, and that was a lot of the reasoning behind lyposuction.
More as a means to dispose of the brown fat cells than for weight
reduction. I also remember going on a diet (quite awhile ago, too)
where at the end, I had similar bulges remainging that only went away
as I approached to within 4 lbs of my weight goal. In other words, my
goal at the time was 142, and the remaing bulges didn't begin receding
until I'd gotten under 146. Hopefully, I'll reexperience the same
phenomina this coming spring. Keep us/me posted.

Yours is the first report I have seen that suggest that dropping low enough
does, indeed, remove a lower belly bulge.

146 to 142 needs a context. Are you male? How tall are you?

Hi Cubit -

I'm a 5'6" male, and this was quite awhile ago. I'd forgotten all
about it until I'd read your post and recalled how good that felt at
the time. I could be wrong on the exact figure, but I distinctly
remember that it was only after losing the 4 - 7 lbs or so, that made
a difference in my own own waistline. Also, my max weight at that
time was less than 170, so I don't there were that many brown cells to
begin with.

Assuming I make it back to around that level again, I'm going to
seriously consider liposuction to remove those cells. Hang in there,
you're so close to it now.
